2. ANGEL DREAM
I dreamed I was an angel, a being made of light, with wings of pure vibration to rise to heaven's heights. I soared upon the winds of joy and sang a melody of gratitude and praise to Him Whose love created me.
I dreamed I was an angel and all I felt was love, so all I saw seemed lovely and all I saw was one. I floated on the winds of peace and rested in the grace of being whole and being one with God my Source always.
I dreamed I was an angel, and God sent me to tell His sleeping Son, "I love you. Abide no more in hell." I had to fly through darkness to reach the sleeping mind that dreamed of desolation in a world of form and time.
How beautiful the Christ was beneath His veil of pain, a light so pure and gentle, the radiance of God's Name. With tenderness I blessed him and whispered in his heart: "Dear child, your Father loves you. Now run no more apart."
I dreamed I was an angel who looked into your eyes and found in them a treasure that made me realize that there is only one of us. Your dream is but my own, and I was sent to waken me and call myself back home. I dreamed I was an angel.
Grace of God, heal my sight. Let me see only light as I gaze on my brothers with You. In Your grace let them shine with the light of one mind and reveal what is perfect and true. In grace I live, in grace forgive. By grace I'm saved, by grace awake. In Your grace let them shine with the light of one mind and reveal what is perfect and true.
Let the gift of your grace wipe the tears from each face and enfold all the world in its glow. I will no more choose pain. It's Your sweet grace I claim to remember Your joy is my own. In grace I live, in grace forgive. By grace I'm saved, by grace awake. I will no more choose pain. It's Your sweet grace I claim to remember Your joy is my own.
Like a flower of Christ I am bathed in the light of Your grace as it shines from above, and I gently release a holy fragrance of peace to remind all the world of Your love. In grace I live, in grace forgive. By grace I'm saved, by grace awake. So I gently release a holy fragrance of peace to remind all the world of Your love.
4. I WILL SING
I will sing down a pathway of light that leads home. I'll sing of my Father and call Him my own. I will sing with my brothers of the oneness we share. Together we'll chorus our love, joy and prayers. Refrain: I will sing down the glory. I will sing down the light. I will sing out the darkness and sing in the light. My voice has the power of God's holy word. I will spread it like grace on the earth.
My words will be fire for melting the ice that has frozen the mind in a glacier of lies. Each song like a beacon will burn pure and bright to warm, guide and comfort those lost in the night. Refrain
Sing with me, beloved, a melody sweet that enfolds us gently in love's unity. With it we'll weave happy dreams for God's sons to help them remember we're one. Refrain
5. SPIRIT OF PEACE
Refrain: Spirit of peace, Presence of holiness. Spirit of love gently enfolds.
I dreamed a world of sin and of separateness, lonely and desolate, where I thought I could hide. God sent a Voice to gently awaken me and ever remain with me and teach me of light. Refrain
Deep in the mind, I hear Spirit calling me, tenderly telling me that I am divine. Deep in the heart, I answer love joyfully, remembering I am free, at home in the Christ. Refrain
Resting in joy, I turn to the light within and open my heart to sing sweet praises of God. Miracles come to show me a different view, a gentle world made new by my holy thoughts. Refrain
6. BY STILL WATERS
"He leadeth me beside the still waters, for his name's sake." Psalm 23
"And turn you to the stately calm within, where in holy stillness dwells the living God you never left, and Who never left you. The Holy Spirit takes you gently by the hand, and retraces with you your mad journey outside yourself, leading you gently back to the truth and safety within." ACIM
Refrain: By still waters of peace, the Spirit leads the heart to rest. By still waters of peace, the mind in silence is refreshed.
In this world with its busy swirl of images and thoughts, existence is resistances to the quiet love of God. Refrain
The self entranced by ego's dance is too afraid to stop. It fears that peace would bring release, and its whole world would be lost. Refrain
The mind deceived by false beliefs is running from the light. But Spirit waits with gifts of grace to bless the sleeping Christ. Refrain
7. ARGENTINA SONRISE
Mi hermana, mi hermano, I hear you crying in the dark. Dry your eyes now. Look around you and see the light softly rising in your heart. For the day comes, a day of laughter, when you remember your holiness within, pure spirit, luz de Cristo, Son of God, and always one with Him.
Mi hermana, mi hermano, it is joy to look into your eyes and see the love there, your gentle sweetness. You are a mirror that helps me realize there is but one mind, una mente, and the world we see is just a dream. Never have we left God. Our oneness is all that can be real.
Mi hermana, mi hermano, I hear you crying in the dark. Dry your eyes now. Look around you and see the light softly rising in your heart.
8. CAFE EGO
Cafe Ego's open now. Hello, and how are you? Though there is only one of you, such singleness won't do. Just make a wish: an extra dish, a table set for two. (Don't be upset but just one gets the lovely window view.)
Perhaps you'll try the ego pie. It is our specialty. It's full of mmm and lots of mmm and things you'll think you see. This yummy stuff won't fill you up. It never satisfies. It disappears, was never here. It's just a dish of lies.
A salad we can make for you of things so fresh and green: Organic lunch that's full of crunch. How healthy it will seem! And you can grin for you'll be thin while others feed on fat. (Until midnight when you'll delight in candybars and snacks.)
Ego souffle will make your day, at least if it stays puffed. Last time it fell. Oh, that was hell! The chef left in a huff. By happy fate it may inflate (to everyone's surprise). It might delight - or be a fright. It's you who must decide!
Or we can do an ego stew that really can't be missed. You must have taste or we won't waste a gourmet dish like this. This special stew's just for the few who can discriminate: True food-ophiles who love the pile of stuff upon their plates.
No meal's complete without some sweets to titillate your mouth. Some pie or cake is no mistake. Have no regrets or doubts. If you choose fudge you must not judge indulgence as a flaw. What else but food can substitute for heaven's light and God?
Here is the check and I suspect you'll think it's way too much. But every gain must bring some pain. Why don't you two go dutch? Just split the cost. There's equal loss and both of you can pout: "Cafe Ego's no place to go when one is dining out!"
9. HEART TO HEART
Heart to heart, I love to be heart to heart, to learn we've not gone apart, that we are still one. Heart to heart, sharing truth heart to heart, igniting the holy spark that's the light of God's Son. Mind to mind, joining our thoughts divine as a singular light that shines and undoes the night. Face to face, sharing the love and grace, the joyous and gentle way of remembering we're Christ.
Heart to heart, join with me heart to heart, to laugh at the guilty dark and wipe away tears. Heart to heart, when we join heart to heart, our happiness we impart to our brothers so dear. Soul to soul, peace is our only goal, remembering we are whole and one in God's sight. Going home, learning we're not alone. God's magnitude is our own, the Source of our life.
Heart to heart, I love to be heart to heart, to learn we've not gone apart, that we are still one. Heart to heart, sharing truth heart to heart, igniting the holy spark that's the light of God's Son.
10. I AM A CHILD
"And he said, I tell you the truth, unless you change and become as little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven." Matthew 18:3
I am a child, bringing You flowers, Lord, out of my soul. How joyous the hours, Lord, under Your gaze, learning Your lessons of love. I am a child. I play in the garden of light at Your feet. We never are parted. Through every sweet day, I'm learning Your lessons of love.
Refrain: Become as a child to enter the kingdom. Give love like a child and you will have wings then to fly to the heart of your Father in heaven. He waits for His children to come back to Him.
You are a child. Come to His arms with me. Be not afraid. He has forgiven thee. We will rejoice, learning His lessons of love. He's calling us now: Children, come home to Me! Time to awake. I'm calling My own to me. Gentle His Voice, teaching the lessons of love. Refrain
I am a child, bringing You flowers, Lord, out of my soul. How joyous the hours, Lord, under Your gaze, learning Your lessons of love, of love.
11. KANSAS SONG
"When the day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all in one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind." Acts
There's a great wind blowin'. It's the Spirit in my mind. It blows away the clouds so that the Son I am can shine. It's clearing out the darkness from my dream of space and time. There's a great wind blowin' in my mind.
There's a great wind blowin' and it drives away the past. It chases out the grimy ghosts of guilt and pain and lack, It sings through empty corridors of memories and laughs. There's a great wind blowin' in my mind.
Hear it howling in the treetops and flinging sheets of rain to shake out every false belief and wash away the pain. Its mission is to heal me of my dreams of sin and shame. There's a great wind blowin' in my mind.
Do you hear the wind that's rattling the windows of your heart? It is searching for a way to you, long hiding in the dark. Will you let it blow your fears away and fan your holy spark? There's a great wind blowin' in your heart.
12. JUST A DREAM
It is just a dream, the world you seem to see. It is just a dream, with no reality. In heaven you abide in joyous unity. You are God's holy Son and ever loved shall be.
It is just a lie that says you're not the Christ. It is just a lie of innocence in flight. You forgot the truth, made up a world of night. You forgot your Source of peace and joy and light.
It is just a thought that you could live apart. It is just a thought, God with a splintered heart. A single tapestry of shadows in the dark, a single cosmic dream of molecules and stars.
It is just the past, a story that's unreal. It is just the past the Spirit's come to heal. Let the Voice within awake you from the dream and turn your tears to joy when truth at last is seen.
It is just a joke and you forgot to laugh. It is just a joke that what is one could clash. Let the angels come and give your mind a bath, to wash away all dreams of a dark and guilty past.
You are just a mind, shining, pure and whole. You are just a mind, safe in your heaven home. Created one with God - one mind, one Self, one Soul - within His tender love, your being He enfolds.
13. THE ALTAR
"So if you are offering your gift at the altar, and there remember that your brother has something against you, leave your gift there before the altar and go; first be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift." Matthew 5:23, 24
It has been a long, long journey, but at last I've reached my goal, the altar where I've come to lay my gifts. Votive candles flicker, casting shadows on the wall, and I watch the smoky tendrils rise and drift. Down upon my knees I go and see within the golden glow the gleaming points of thorns red with new blood. Distant cries of pain I hear, filling all my mind with fear at crucifixion of someone I've judged.
In the guilty silence comes a Voice that's soft and gentle, saying, "You must leave your gifts with Me awhile. Go and find the one that you condemned to endless hell, and in the light of Christ be reconciled. Ask forgiveness at his feet, that your joy may be complete in the memory there is only one. Pain is all you can expect when any brother you reject, so let your hate and anger be undone."
In the darkness looms a cross. I see his body hanging there and fear that my forgiveness comes too late. Tears of contrition burning now as I recall his gentleness, the goodness covered over by my hate. Down upon my knees I fall and to his lifeless form I call, "Brother, all your hurt I would undo. God forgive me, I've been blind. I tried to cast guilt from my mind by seeing all my sins and shame in you."
In the blackness of my sorrow I become aware of light and suddenly my brother's face I see. Tenderly he's smiling and I hear the wings of angels as they gather us in one bright unity. Kneeling at the altar then with this dear and holy friend, I see the crown of thorns has been replaced. Pure white lilies shining there with their fragrance bless the air, reminding us of God's sweet love and grace.
It has been a long, long journey, but at last I've reached my goal, the altar where I found Love's holy gift.
14. SHARING THE JOY
Refrain: Sharing the joy, shining the light, singing the bliss and soaring in Christ, sharing the peace, shining the truth, singing and soaring in you.
Joined in one purpose: To heal what never was. Peace is our purpose, forgiving and living in love. Refrain
We cast off the burdens of guilt and sorrow and sin. We rise up in purpose, remembering heaven within. Refrain
We call to our brothers: This world offers nothing you want. But joined in one purpose, God's joy is our life and our song. Refrain
Refrain: Time is such a waste of time. It wastes my heart and wastes my mind. Nothing's all I'll ever find in time. I am spirit, God's design, a light of joy that ever shines, so why, you ask, am I resigned to wasting time in time. I must be out of my mind.
Perhaps it is the hypnosis that says I sinned and God is angry at me. I take my guilt in small doses: 6 billion bodies, give a little to each. Refrain
The ego's got my attention, so many problems, got to figure them out. What if it's all just invention that fills my mind with clouds of fear, pain and doubt? Refrain
Zero plus zero is zero. Zero times zero equals nothing at all. This whole world I see is a zero: unreal, impossible, illusory, false. Refrain
The Voice of the Spirit is calling from deep within. It says my freedom is here. This nightmare of time so appalling in the light of my forgiveness will just disappear.
There is another use of time, through which the Christ in me can shine, a happy dream, gentle and kind, of time. This moment is the key divine. The chains of guilt it will unbind and make the gifts of heaven mine. I'll find my will with God's aligned, in loving use of time.
16. MIGHTY WINGS
(with special thanks to Angel Maria)
Have you found the wings of peace folded in your mind? Have you spread them out in joy to rise and soar and shine? Safe and soft, sweet and strong - the mighty wings of peace.
Have you found the wings of love? Within your heart they wait to lift you out of loneliness and into God's embrace. Safe and soft, sweet and strong - the mighty wings of love.
Have you found the wings of truth singing deep within, a phoenix song that longs to rise and carry you to Him? Safe and soft, sweet and strong - the mighty wings of truth.
Have you seen the angels' wings shining all around, their mercy gently lifting you to ride love's soaring sound? Safe and soft, sweet and strong - the mighty angels' wings.
Do you know we are bright wings of light, in Spirit joined? And as we learn to beat as one, we fly to heaven home. Safe and soft, sweet and strong - the mighty wings of Christ.
Flowing, flowing in the light. Drifting on its gentle tides. So precious the ones who share the joy, remembering the truth that we are whole.
Giving the love we have received, cleansing the mind of pain and grief, laughing at what we dreamed before. Joining as one we rise and soar.
Holy is Spirit's use of time. Peaceful our gatherings of mind, allowing the truth to heal our sight, sharing identity as Christ.
18. THERE IS ONLY LOVE
There is only love, love within and without, up and down, all around us. There is only love. Like the air that we breathe, in and out, it surrounds us. We can see what we choose to perceive. We receive what we choose to receive. It's our power. Every thought is a seed of desire and within it lies creation's fire. It will flower.
There is only love, love that undoes our nightmares of pain and will free us. There is only love, love that undoes our masks with its light and reveals us. Do not fear what is seen in that light, only beauty, the image of Christ - what is real. You've been dreaming illusions of sin. Just let the light of love in. It will heal.
There is only love. This whole world with its anger and guilt is fear's making. There is only love. God is calling to you: Holy Child, now awaken. What you dream cannot change what you are. Your holiness shines like a star in the heavens. There's no death, there's no pain, there's no time. What God creates is perfect, divine and forever.
There is only love, love within and without, up and down, all around us. There is only love. Like the air that we breathe, in and out, it surrounds us. There is only love.
19. SONG OF PRAYER
My heart turns to You
to Your shining stillness,
breath of light
Warm wings of peace
fold around me,
and I am held.
The colors of my dream
leap into the white Ray
that calls them home
and calls them whole.
The single I
is bright with joy,
soft with knowing.
It sees eternal Now,
within and within.
Mind rests in the deep quiet
of one Love
