Buddha Within

Buddha Within

 Soft pillows of bliss carry my heart
to the solitude of my soul.
Here, I rest in the sanctuary of stillness
where there is only the sound of breath;
deep welcoming energy flowing
in and out of my spiritual domain.

I see heaven and earth, the moon and the stars within.
Each cell twinkling like diamonds and shining inwardly
as the heart fills with compassion and serenity.
Loving thoughts in a generous pocket of silence
surrender to the divine sparkle.

How can I do anything but smile when I sit in such inner beauty?
In this rich center of my core, there is endless space
and illuminated peace that is present.
I can hear the sounds of sweet nectar as it works its way
through the blood of my body; giving me life’s best moments.
Forever in my heart, I give way to the glory.

That’s why I write and paint–
to express the wisdom and spirit of Buddha within.
It is where I feel rooted by the still voice of awakening
that shakes my existence and nourishes my inner branches.
Leisurely, I rest amongst the trees of my own divine nature
where I am liberated by the daily chaos of the world.

There is nothing as delicious and sacred as a kind and humble heart.
No greater gift bestowed upon a soul than the honor of inner grace.
May the kind winds of grace carry you in life
into your own inner sanctuary of stillness;
to the Buddha within you.
