Read it through and if you feel so inclined, select one of the chapters that seems to strike you, let me know via email and I’ll send you by return email the chapter you selected. Continue reading

The Road Ahead – Introduction – 7/14/15

I’m well along in the process of writing a book. I’ll include a few excerpts from it in my email/blog. Here’s the Introduction, and an annotated table of contents.

I speak about God here. If that offends you, use “Love” instead. Its one of God’s primary names. Continue reading

eagle’s flight – Drawn in – 1/15/15

I’m in the process of reading through the book “Mansions of the Heart” by John Ashcroft. It’s a modern rendition of Teresa of Avila’s “Interior Castle” and St. John of the Cross’ “Dark Night of the Soul”. A small group of 3 of us have been having dinner together on Thursdays and talking about it, seeing where it resonates, and how we respond to Ashcroft’s comments. It’s been quite enjoyable to engage in such conversations each week. Here’s my take on the seven mansions which are stages in the spiritual journey, sometimes re-visited, each one never completely explored.

Warning – I’m using a bit more Christian specific language than I usually do. Replace “Christ” with “Love” or “The Word” if it’s easier for you. And on the “Holy 3” i.e. the “Trinity” … you’re on your own.

Let me know what strikes you. Continue reading

eagle’s flight – gracious generosity – 1/1/15

I’m being prompted to muse, meditate and pray around replacing greed with generosity. So, I’ve done a quick survey of the Christian scriptures on generosity and this is a first resultant poem. Interesting the blessings tied to generosity, some of which would appear foolish to current mindsets, but perhaps can be an antidote to the greed which leaves so many behind.

eagle’s flight – Christmas Comes – 12/9/14.

Ah, Christmas, the time of year that brings tears to my eyes for the beauty of carols played and sung by a choir. It brings tears to my eyes for the dull never ending hatreds that tend to shoot first and listen later. The joy of family gathered, playing together, expectant of good things. The heartache of homeless souls forced to abandon the only home they know being told to “move along”. Continue reading

the way – ah, to deny myself – 1/10/13

I’m trying to figure out, or otherwise get to know, what it means to take up my cross and follow after Jesus. My heart wish and choice is to bring more and more of such words to life in my life. That’s one of the reasons behind my poetry.
Sometimes I wonder if that is such a wise choice.

I hear him saying …. Continue reading
