The Garden of Life

The Garden of Life

Seed your thoughts in a garden that treasures life and your harvest will be abundant in what has life. Seed your thoughts in a garden that treasures only what is lifeless, and your harvest will be abundant in what is devoid of life. However, when not appreciated anymore, either harvest can become a garden, not of abundance, but of what we term “waste.” So, seed your thoughts with the knowledge that each seed is sacred. Let what is eternally abundant be your treasure as you plant and sow within the garden of life.

Kindly…

Posted by on Apr 11, 2012

There's a story that the Earth would tell Of man that did not know himself, Yet God granted him His Earth to rule it kindly. And, what the Earth does know and ever tells, Though man chooses not to hear it well, Was through how he ruled he'd know himself more clearly. Dear Ones, if you could only see Your reigning glory like the tree, Made of Oak, so strong, its leaves so green. It grows for All… So, think first before you'd cut it down, Or scatter parts of Earth around, To build castles made from Him, but made unloving. Your Earth still waits for man to see His reigning...

Lake of Mirrors…

Posted by on Apr 6, 2012

When I look upon a still lake, I notice my reflection within it and the heaven & sky behind me as if it were a huge crown upon my small head. The lake teaches me that it reflects all. All is upon it, seemingly within it and yet outside of it. All that is light and shadow reflected together, no judgement placed by the lake upon itself other than to judge itself as perfect. It knows that mirrors are only mirrors, and it seems to know that only if I can delve much deeper than these mirrors, may I find the truth about the lake. It simply is was it is, a part of the All That Is, and nothing...

Love Enter Me…

Posted by on Apr 30, 2011

love enter me… my life, my dreams and goals… take hold of me… brightening the dreariest of winter morns… casting stardust t'wards my waiting eyes… to shine away all tears I've held inside… love enter me… within a trance, a song, the magic of a dance… for of Your gentle joy and sweetest taste I long… to fill me up… and bring me home… basking in the warmth of Your shining sun… my heart aglow… and on my face… a smile… to offer everyone I know… ~Mandy, Jan 24, 2008 About spiritual...

The Path…

Posted by on Apr 28, 2011

Man when lost, may try to find his footing, traveling blind and weighted down by shoes of clay. Man will say; "Do not cast thou eyes upon thy feet", because man fears that eyes, devoid of love, pronounce a judgment based on shame. But within each fair judgment lies a call for love, and within each call is found a Light that says; "You need not tarry over plagues in darkness; once your feet know Love, they then can light a way." ~ Mandy

My Prayer to Love..

Posted by on Apr 26, 2011

Infinite Love of the Purest vibration, cleanse me now of all that is not of You. Heal my thoughts to make them Holy. Align my intentions with Yours, so that I may dispell all that is illusion and become anchored in Your Truth. I ask of You now… to make my life a reflection of Your profoundest Joy. To make my heart a castle for Your endless Compassion. To make my mind a dwelling place for Your For-Giving thoughts. And, please… make my body a worthy home and vessel for a Magnificent Soul that shines of You. Thank You… Mandy, July 28,...

May I Love You Like This…

like a leaf will flutter in a dancing breeze touched by a warming sun that shines… may I love you like this… like a bird that wants so much to fly and touch the clearest sky above… may I love you like this… like a favorite melody that plays and strikes a tender cord within… may I love you like this… like time is standing still and all's in a perfect state of bliss… may I love you like this… like every moment bears a perfect gift t'wards a heart open to receive… may I love you… like this… Mandy, February...

Transposed…

Posted by on Apr 26, 2010

Darkness begins to fall And dusk plants its dimly lit kiss upon my cheek What's seen is now unclear Though still seen to some degree Undressed beneath a moonlit glow. A clear night exposes many stars up high Cloud and rain dispersed a while ago Whence lightning flashed And thunder shook Now calm leaves all around transposed. And as I walk alone this path I tread Love begs to follow close behind My mind sees many darkened shades of grey. My heart feels its colors true and bold Casting a glow into a night I feel entwined. For now, I wait and hold… Hold my breath with heart aglow,...

If You Knew…

Posted by on Jul 16, 2008

If you knew… just how much you're loved so true, under moon at night, with many stars that shine above… what would you do? If you knew… a shooting star could fall towards the Earth below, to risk a chance that its bright glow, would be held within your palms so sweet… what would you do? If you knew… that the very though of your sweet name, caused a heart to beat with so much joy, and a song to light its room, much like a candle lights with flame… what would you do? And if you knew, that there is nothing you could ever do, to be cast away.. no matter...

My Heart is Like The Morning Sun…

Posted by on May 13, 2008

my heart is like the morning sun, slowly rising… to meet a clear blue sky above, and I see my lover down below, in a meadow full of growth… and in the still, I hear the quiet whispers of a calming breeze, it does tempt and tease with truths it knows, and nature seems to laugh and play so well, while leaves are moving too and fro… and my lover basks beneath my balmy warmth, listening with a captured heart, to all secrets that my warming love imparts.. so, here, shining above this meadowed grass below, I know my love sings true, a song so sweet and yet so old, I can surrender...

A Blade of Grass…

Posted by on Apr 13, 2008

See the sunlight dance along the pasture… Be in that pasture… A single blade of grass… Be like the grass… Sway in the wind… Bend and flow with its breath among the other blades… Follow your heart… And, don't be afraid to know your desires…. For they are a part of you… Mandy, 2008

I Think of You…

Posted by on Feb 24, 2008

thoughts come… and bring excitement to my idle mind… I think of you… and all feels boyant in an instant… and my heart begins to pound… I think of you… and how I long to kiss your lips… to taste your sweat… to lose all ground… I think of you… and how close to heaven two can be… wrapped in your arms… so tight that I can hardly breath… so, if thoughts should ever walk into your idle mind… I hope such thoughts will be; "I think of you…" and may you feel my presence close… knowing… I am...
