ALL TRULY IS WELL

 

By Beverly Nadler

 

They say the world

Has lost its heart

That our beloved planet

Is falling apart

 

Natural cycles

We call a tragic calamity --

From our limited perspective

All we can see

 

Is the chaos

And we feel pain

We donít know

Itís Mother Earth seeking balance again

 

Thereís much our human mind

Cannot conceive

Thatís why the prophets said

We must believe

 

Believe in a Power

Beyond who you are

The Power that created

The sun and the stars

 

The Power that keeps

All orbiting in space

The Power that fills

The universe with grace

 

Perfection is here

Though we donít know it

We are blessed

Though each event doesnít show it

 

No loss can occur

Without a gain somewhere

No one is stranded

Without someone who cares

 

For every longing you suffer

And wonder why

Thereís a loving Spirit

That hears your cry

 

Thereís always a rainbow

After the storm

And lifeís blessings

Come in many forms

 

Even though we canít eliminate

Struggle and strife

All thingís considered

Itís a wonderful life

 

Even when it feels like
Everything has gone to hell
Look past the illusion
for

ALL TRULY IS WELL!
