  • Let Them All

    By Emily Stern

    If you need proof of anything
    Of the existence of alien life,
    Of the existence of God,
    Of anything we know,
    Remember how much we do not know.

    What we know is small. Combine yin and yang and find the gold.
    The both sides of the coin are still a coin.
    There is more. New materials that have yet to be rumored. Contradictions and paradoxes, just let them all be true. 

  • Performing You

    For the love of creation,
    When you share what is happening to you,
    whine, say your truth. It’s a performance of the highest kind to see the glorious vessel we are as human beings. What is revealed is a human example beyond the one anyone has ever known. Ask for someone to listen to you


    while they know


    they are you.


    They listen to the performance


    you do of yourself


    for their illumination. 

  • Pen In The Sky

    By Emily Stern

    I'm fine with the image of a pen in the sky
    as long as it's feathered, and
    can chisel through stone.

    Draw the truth in all of the world.
    Get fancy and very straightforward.

    Show us the lines
    to break through the schmutz
    reveal what's inside.
    Reveal to us Your heartfelt design.

    If your soul paints the world,
    write our book of glowing streams
    already here, already perfect, already whole.

    Simply lift and return us again.
    We’re ready to live in the daylight
    of Grace, hand in hand. Yours always.

    So grateful for a woman who made her own form of everything,

    Charlotte Solomon in a hodge-podge

    when so much form comes together, they call it formless

    Scientists, ecologists, devotees, and spiritual healers are together at a summit, saying we need each other. The scientists want to know, "Is there a need for us in the spiritual world?" “Yes of course!  We don’t know what to do to be shepherds of this earth, and most of us know... read on

  • Drunken Ideals

    By Emily Stern

    I went to a bar last week, a rare occurance. It was after a rehearsal for a play, and I sat on the rooftop of some hotel and ordered a drink. 

    This man sat next to me. 

    I remarked about peace, and how jewish prayer usually mentions peace. It occured to me that many people may not know that.  "OSEH SHALOM.." how high, central, and explicit of an ideal it is. 

    He said he really didn't know that.
