Eternal bliss flows through me, for God woke up today

and everything I thought I knew, the world just fades to gray

There is only Love and Joy and Peace, it comes from deep within

the place I forgot I hid to protect it from my sin



In their eyes I once perceived ungratefulness to condemn

but from their eyes I really saw it was all just me instead

Dwelling in a house of cards on shame and trauma built

I perceived through made-up anger to justify my guilt



I placed it all on them so I wouldn’t have to see

the pain of sin I made up so I could just be free

I believed in the illusions, I chose a dream instead

A dream of pain and suffering, a belief in sin and death



Through those I saw impoverished I found poverty in me

A belief that I was lacking; good enough I’d never be

Through those I saw in power I found myself begging attack

A victim ready and willing to say, ‘I was right! Just look at that!’



Through those I saw in jealousy, a martyr stirred to life

who knew no joy or love or peace, just living each day in strife

Please, God, please, help me see, I want to know the Truth

help me please to let this go, and let me live as You



A gentle peace, so calm, so light came rolling from my Heart

A tender voice spoke up and said, ‘Beloved, we were never apart

All you had to do was ask and be open to the Truth

When you ask, you shall receive; stop looking out there for proof!



‘Be still, my Dear, and know that You are all you seek

For I am You and You are Me, as is the sparrow in that tree

I have been here all along for you, just waiting to be let in

Heaven dances gleefully because you know you are forgiven



‘There never was any sin, you see, all of that, it was just a dream

A dream of life that you believed, but now return to Me’

With that I felt a chill and a warmth within my Heart

He asked if I’ll allow and accept and receive what He’ll impart



‘All that I ask of you is simply to forgive

Remember who you are, my Love, each day, your thanks do give’

I accept, I can’t hold back the bursting of the dam

There is only to rejoice, for I remember that I AM
