If we will let it be

I see a world where love reigns all,

It’s not too hard to see.

Everywhere my eyes are cast,

I find a new beauty.

Human nature is universal,

Hidden from ourselves.

In children we can see its print,

We see pure love in cast.

So is it lost?

I dare say no!

It’s just that we don’t see,

But heaven is inside us all,

If we will let it be.

Stephen Martin, 3/1/2021


The seeker starts following stars

Then looks at atoms

Each day new

The seeker finds a gem

Pieces of the Galaxy

That reflect the majesty

Found within.

The spirits of the stars

Manifest on a physical plane

To play

To make music

To exist for a fraction of infinity

In polar extreme.

The seeker finds this moment

Over & over again

Adding to the ever growing repertoire

Of experience.

Divinity grows from the gathered seeds.


Gambling with your chance
Seems like a mistake
Birds fly on the wind
And so do we
But fly toward your destiny.

Look inside and ask for truth
It’s in there somewhere
I promise you
Don’t look outside for authority
Too many people are trying to be.

Understand reality by what you can create
Find out for yourself if something is fake
Find out for yourself if a “fact” can pass your test
Lead by example
Leave following to the rest.

But don’t forget your brethren
When you find hard won answers
Know that you are right
Teach them how to fight
For the truth that never changes
For the truth that never rearranges
For the truth that you found when you
Stopped listening to fools
And opened up to the idea–of You.
