The River Knows

The river knows, the river shows, 

the river goes the way it want to go 

To change its course, you change your course 

You lose the source, It’s a simple thing to know 

    The heart it knows, the heart it shows, 

    The heart it goes the way it want to go 

    The use of force to change its course 

    You lose the source that lets your body glow 

And all around the world the truth reveals itself 

for everyone to know 

That loving spark that hits the mark 

connects the arc between all living souls 

    The mystery is clear to see 

    Transcend the clouds of fantasy 

    Beyond the cravings of desire 

    The naked truth is there for all to know 

As we start to see with heart 

the course we chart begins to unfold 

We plant the seeds, a graceful art 

inch by inch & row by row by row 

    It’s not the end, it’s not the means 

    It’s in the gap, it’s timeless love we sow 

    It’s the simple things that kindness brings 

    The whisperings that sing so soft & low 

The mystery is ours to know 

Though it remains untold 

The powers that be they be not so 

All beauty lies beyond our control 

    To nourish gardens of the soul 

    Is to be in timeless flow 

    And all we really need to know 

    Is what the river knows 

And on & on & on & on & on & on the river flows
