"Spirituality is not to be learned by flight from the world, or by running away from things, or by turning solitary and going apart from the world. Rather, we must learn an inner solitude wherever or with whomsoever we may be. We must learn to penetrate things and find God there."

 Meister Eckhart (via purplebuddhaproject)

The Fall

In the Phoenix summer sun
I learned how to miss
Someone as the desert dried my eyes.
When the sun bleached through my skin
The world could see my sin.
There was nowhere left to hide.
There was nowhere left to hide.
When there’s nowhere left to hide
And I’m choking on my pride,
Still tastes too good to swallow
I can’t help I’m afraid to follow
Yet oh I can’t keep myself together
When I fall to my knees.

I’d like to say I’m brave
But only at the price
Of calling it a truth when it’s a lie.
The heights I’ll climb, miles run,
Before I’ll mean the prayers I’ve sung.
Will I ever ever learn that
There is nowhere left to hide.
When there’s nowhere left to hide
And I’m choking on my pride,
Still tastes too good to swallow
I can’t help I’m afraid to follow
Yet oh I can’t keep myself together
When I fall to my knees.

The heights I’ll climb, miles run,
Before I’ll mean these prayers I’ve sung
Will I ever ever learn?
The blood I’ve spilt, the ones I miss,
All the things I can’t forgive
Will I ever let them go
When I fall to my knees?

Eden

There’s a tear in our world today
Still say that we’re “united”
When the pain gets us excited
Claims that this world needs us
Like we are its Jesus
But I still see the planks in our eyes
And I don’t think it’s going
Where you think it’s going
Who’s to say I care anymore anyway?

I don’t know what we’ve been told
What’s loved is lost, what’s lost is old
What happened to our Eden
The peace that we could breathe in
Before I thought our breath my own?
Back to where we started
When Love was still the artist
Never feeling ever alone

Never feeling ever alone

Sometimes I still forget that
The thing we call forgiveness
Is stealing all my cares away
Back to where we started
When Love was still the artist
Never feeling ever alone

"Acknowledging the good that you already have in your life is the foundation for all abundance."
