Eden is here right now on earth
It lives all around the gift of our birth
It sings in the birds glows in the moon
Shines in the sun laughs like a loon

Runs in the streams dances like rain
Reaches like corn flies like a crane
We have been told by powers that would
That earth is endured and heaven is good

I wonder why they keep heaven from all
Heaven’s here now do not fear any fall
It’s not in the latest computer or toy
It’s not in your job search new suit or smart ploy

It all depends on willingness to see
To wake up the love in you and me
The heaven you seek is the heaven you are
It lies just beneath not very far

No need to climb descend or take flight
Be still calm yourself quiet your fright
Despite what “they” tell you to need or to earn
The garden’s love in you will fill every yearn

What is the dominant energy that runs inside you?
Do you take time to appreciate the power and joy of the loving kindness that courses through you?
Think of a troubling situation you are currently experiencing.
If you brought your love and compassion to the others involved how might that change things?
What is holding you back?
