Standing in natures green cathedral blessed by serenity,
The forest is sacred; there is no better place to be.
Slow down to appreciate the beauty, smell the scent upon the breeze.
Listen to the bird songs and appreciate the trees.
Lao Tzu rode a buffalo that is considered slow today.
Lao Tzu trained his buffalo to support him on his ‘Way’.
Haste was not a priority he just went with the flow.
Today out on the road that is something we should know.
Walk to the valley, follow the mountain stream.
Meander to enjoy all nature’s gifts supreme.
Stroll to the ocean, earth-out bare foot on the ground.
Let others wanting more, power the tread mill round.
Bath in the cleansing water, glad to be alive,
The wisdom is you need few things to survive.
The importance of time spent this way,
Is we are refreshed to earn our pay.
For necessities needed to sustain life.
Wanting more brings trouble and strife.
Lau Tzu spoke of yin and yang to balance work with play.
The Buddha taught wanting was a problem that got in the way.
To understand all in life flows like a mountain stream.
We cannot cling to water or capture a sunbeam.
When we have surplus to what we need,
Then to hoard not share is only greed.
Balance greed with kindness is wisdom too,
As helping others, brings happiness to you.
To give thanks to the inexplicable Tao, what’s in a name anyhow?
Appreciate with joy and delight,
Do not argue over who is right.
To appreciation nature’s gifts is a prayer to the supreme.
To argue over a name makes the beauty all obscene.
The stream runs to the ocean, every tear drop becomes one.
We all bleed the same colour, why can’t our life be more fun.
The tear drops fall like rain,
All this fighting is insane.
Like the Christian who has found God I want to share with you.
A way to peace and contentment, that’s an admirable thing to do.
The joy that I have found.
I want to share around.
I do not think God was ever lost,
Man gets lost and pays the cost.
Lost unmindful of our emotion,
Like a storm raging on the ocean.
Stop look up at the stars above.
Do not kill the things you love.
The sand on the beach the stars in the sky,
We are so small you and I.
