Spirituality is the concept of an ultimate or an alleged immaterial reality;[1] an inner path enabling a person to discover the essence of his/her being; or the “deepest values and meanings by which people live

The English word spirit comes from the Latin spiritus, meaning “breath.  The vital principle or animating force within living beings.. Incorporeal consciousness.



We are on this journey

to experience this dimension
as spirits in body density
Created Divine,

to be examples to all
to grow in all knowledge,

with understanding from the heart

love is all there is
love is all we need
created perfect in spirit
we are learning
how to find our way back home

we are of heaven and earth
beautifully created life force
created sublime,  perfect within

love being our perfect companion

a deep mystic river of the Creator


time is the well-worn path
our light within leads the way
we each walk our path but

are never alone

helping spirits walk with us
angels hover above us
ancestors support us in our quest
our guides advise us
the great Spirit beckons to us
in our darkest hours

be joyful in your beloved garden of awe

and express the jewel of compassion from your heart
for life is eternal

loving voices sing in the wilderness

be of good cheer as
our hearts beat to the rhythm of Spirit’s drum
be aware of these spiritual beacons
leading us home, for within, we are all one, forever
