Sunrise, Sunset

Is this the little girl I carried?
Is this the little boy at play?
I don’t remember growing older
When did they?

When did she get to be a beauty?
When did he grow to be so tall?
Wasn’t it yesterday
When they were small?

Sunrise, Sunset.
Sunrise, Sunset.
Swiftly flow the days
Seedlings turn overnight to sunflowers,
Blossoming, even as we gaze.

Sunrise, Sunset.
Sunrise, Sunset.
Swiftly fly the years.
One season following another,
Laden with happiness and tears.

What words of wisdom can I give them?
How can I help to ease their way?
Now they must learn from one another,
Day by day.

Sunrise, Sunset.
Sunrise, Sunset.
Swiftly fly the years.,
One season following another
Laden with happiness and tears.

The Greatest Glory

Every earthly lifetime is a gift from the Highest. Realising this, let’s try to make every minute and second of it count and never give up on what our inner guidance, the wise one or living God within, tells us is true. Let’s not shy away from making mistakes because they are teaching us more than any success ever could. Instead of feeling bad about our blunders, let’s thank them for helping us to evolve into a better person. After all, our moving forwards and upwards on our personal evolutionary spiral could only come about because of what we learnt from our mistakes. So, let’s only look down on someone when we are giving them a helping hand to get up.

The greatest glory is not in never falling,
But in rising again, each time we fall.
Confucius 551-479 BC

The Overflowing Cup
I have never made a fortune.
It’s probably too late for that by now,
But I don’t worry about it much
‘Cos I’m happy anyhow.
As I’ve been walking along life’s way,
I’ve been reaping better than I sowed
And am drinking from my saucer,
For my cup has overflowed.

I haven’t got many riches,
And sometimes the going’s tough,
But I’ve got loving ones around me
And with that I’m rich enough.
I thank You God for your blessings,
And the mercies You have bestowed.
I’m drinking from my saucer,
For my cup has overflowed.

I remember times when things went wrong
And my faith wore somewhat thin.
But then at once the dark clouds broke,
And the Sun peeped through again.
Please help me God not to gripe
About the tough rows I have hoed,
Instead give thanks and praise to You
That I’m still drinking from my saucer,
For my cup has overflowed.

If You give me strength and courage,
When the way grows steep and rough,
I’ll not ask for other blessings
As I’m already blessed enough.
And may I never be too busy,
To help others bear their loads,
So I can drink from my saucer,
Each time my cup has overflowed.

Each Day Is A New Beginning

Each day is a new beginning,
So start it with a smile.
And practise the art of living
By doing things that are worthwhile,
Like loving and forgiving,
And creating time to spare
For making someone happy
And showing how much we care.

May we never forget that
Each day is a gift from the Highest,
Even though at the moment we are still
Battling our way through the plandemic.
Knowing that this too serves a wise and higher purpose,
The same as everything else that ever happened
On our plane of life,
Let’s not forget to give thanks and praise for it.

Our New World

Because our thoughts create our reality,
Just take a moment here and there to think about
How Mother Earth will be in the new golden age,
When honesty and truth are its supreme rulers,
People live together in peace and harmony,
Helping and supporting instead of exploiting each other.

There is only one God, the God of love,
And only one religion, the religion of love.
Warmongering and empire building are no more.
Nobody goes hungry or thirsty and that’s come about
In a natural way because everybody takes merely
What they need and leaves the rest for those behind.
Everybody is well fed, housed and clothed,
And has a plentiful supply of clean water.

Children are well cared for and looked after.
Each one is loved, appreciated and encouraged
To bring forth the best from deep within their own being.
Everybody knows that they are not vessels waiting to be filled,
But probably have spent many previous lifetimes
Developing a unique set of gifts and talents which
The Great Father/Mother bestowed upon them
At the moment of their creation.
They are our true eternal parents, who never leave us.
The Angelic kingdom, on their behalf,
Cares for everyone’s true needs.
Everybody is gifted in a special way.
In each new lifetime everybody brings their
Gifts and talents with them, waiting to be coaxed
To the surface of our consciousness and then
Developed and unfolded some more.

With every day that passes the golden age draws closer.
That’s not merely a hope and dream but will soon
Turn into a reality on the earthly plane because it’s
Written in God’s evolutionary plan for us and our world.
And each one of us has been gifted in some
Special way that enables us to make,
Hand in hand with God and the Angels,
Their own unique contribution to this new era
Of peace, harmony and plenty for all.
Each in their own way is required
To give of their best.
That’s all!

Life Is Like A Mirror

There are loyal hearts and spirits brave,
And souls who are pure and true.
Like them, give to our world the best you have,
So only more of the same can return to you.

Give love, so that through you it does flow
And returns to give you strength in your hours of need.
Have trust and faith in the basic goodness of life.
Make sure your whole being shows
It with every thought, word and deed.

Meet all life with honesty and truth,
And when this gift returns to you in kind,
When honour with honour does meet,
Greet it with a smile and you will surely find
That even this returns to you as sweet.

Be compassionate with all who weep and mourn,
Help them to enjoy our world again.
The scattered seeds of your love are outborne,
Even though you sometimes think that sowing
Them might have been in vain.

Life acts like a mirror before King and slave.
It reveals to us who and what we truly are in everything we do.
And whenever you give to our world the best you have,
Rest assured that only the best can return to you and
That’s by no means an empty promise.

It happens because God’s justice is perfect,
Because it is based on the
Universal law of cause and effect or Karma.
This law ensures that everything one of us sends
Into our world in thoughts, words and actions,
In due course must return to its sender
In somewhat strengthened form.
