Posts Tagged ‘Beloved’

This poem is a favorite of mine; I wrote it several years ago.  The first verse is the tag line you see whenever you visit Simply Blessed.  The “Beloved” I refer to here is God or Spirit, Universe, Divine Creator, Supreme Being, Source, All That Is.

Messiah

I have fallen between the cracks
and landed in the spaces
where love never fails

Beloved, you are my captor
and I am bound by your love

I hear you whisper softly
don’t speak. words fail here, just listen

churning on the seas of your desire
I am the rising and the falling

the beginning and the ending
the fullness and the emptiness

journey to the furthest point of your yearning
I am the anguish and the exaltation

I am the grain of sand awakening the pearl

I am the morsel you are tasting
be it bitter or sweet

quench your deepest thirst here
where you think I’m not

I Am.

This is about a 17 minute video, but you could listen to the first five minutes and get the heart of the message.  If you make it all the way to the end, the story he tells, well, not a chance you could listen to it and not be moved upon.

“There is no need to know anything,
only look in the eyes of the Beloved.”  ~ Mooji

I Can See Your Halo

For those of you who follow this blog regularly, the Chinese five element blog post on water has been deleted and the series has been scrapped for now.  There are some copyright issues so until such time that I can distill the work in a more experiential manner, I won’t be posting further on it.  Meanwhile I will continue to study with the author Jean Haner and encourage any of you who are interested in the material to attend a face reading, a workshop or both.  At the very least you will find it highly entertaining and you just might walk away from it as fascinated and enthralled by it as I was and am.

So…back to our regular scheduled programming.  I’m a bit Johnny-come-lately or should I say Bethie-come-lately on this, since the song has been out for many months now, but how much do I love Beyonce’s song – Halo.  When I sing the lyrics, it’s not the love of my life I’m addressing, for me, it’s God, Spirit.  It’s the Beloved with a capital “B”.  It is such a beautiful way to tap into Spirit, to sing — “everywhere I’m looking now, I’m surrounded by your embrace …  it’s like I’ve been awakened … you hit me like a ray of sun, burning through my darkest night … you know you’re my saving grace, you’re everything I need and more”.

And yes there was a time, actually many times when I’d thought I’d go it alone.  Sometimes I thought, hey God, I’ve got this one handled.   Other times I just forget to lean on Spirit altogether only to find myself humbled again at the pure ecstacy of standing in the light, the love and the all encompassing perfection of Spirit.

This youtube version below was adapted for the Hope For Haiti now project several months ago.  What a beautiful demonstration of love to sing to an entire nation – I can see your halo.  What if we said to everyone we met today, silently or otherwise – I can see your halo.

Remember those walls I built
Well, baby they’re tumbling down
And they didn’t even put up a fight
They didn’t even make up a sound

I found a way to let you in
But I never really had a doubt
Standing in the light of your halo
I got my angel now

It’s like I’ve been awakened
Every rule I had you breakin’
It’s the risk that I’m takin’
I ain’t never gonna shut you out

Everywhere I’m looking now
I’m surrounded by your embrace
Baby I can see your halo
You know you’re my saving grace

You’re everything I need and more
It’s written all over your face
Baby I can feel your halo
Pray it won’t fade away

I can feel your halo halo halo
I can see your halo halo halo
I can feel your halo halo halo
I can see your halo halo halo

Hit me like a ray of sun
Burning through my darkest night
You’re the only one that I want
Think I’m addicted to your light

I swore I’d never fall again
But this don’t even feel like falling
Gravity can’t forget
To pull me back to the ground again

Feels like I’ve been awakened
Every rule I had you breakin’
The risk that I’m takin’
I’m never gonna shut you out

Everywhere I’m looking now
I’m surrounded by your embrace
Baby I can see your halo
You know you’re my saving grace

You’re everything I need and more
It’s written all over your face
Baby I can feel your halo
Pray it won’t fade away

I can feel your halo halo halo
I can see your halo halo halo
I can feel your halo halo halo
I can see your halo halo halo

I can feel your halo halo halo
I can see your halo halo halo
I can feel your halo halo halo
I can see your halo halo halo
Halo, halo

Everywhere I’m looking now
I’m surrounded by your embrace
Baby I can see your halo
You know you’re my saving grace

You’re everything I need and more
It’s written all over your face
Baby I can feel your halo
Pray it won’t fade away

I can feel your halo halo halo
I can see your halo halo halo
I can feel your halo halo halo
I can see your halo halo halo

I can feel your halo halo halo
I can see your halo halo halo
I can feel your halo halo halo
I can see your halo halo halo

how do you say Live
to one who is backstage rehearsing their lines

how do you say Take flight
when you no longer dream of flying

how do you say Dive
to one who is afraid of drowning

how do you say Heal this heart
even as it wails in tender grief

how do you say Now, not a moment longer
to one who pretends it doesn’t matter anymore

how do you say Trust
when you can’t see through the darkness

how do you say Unfurl
when you want to fold up

how do you say Drop everything now
run, run, run to the Beloved

how do you say Let yourself be
drenched in Him

how do you say Grasp the Beloved’s hand
firmly in yours,

how do you say, Don’t let go
He knows the way.
