Sometimes I Enter With a Gong

I’m a word, six letters long,
I sometimes enter with a gong.

All in order from A to Z,
I start with the letter B.

What is the word?

It has six letters, when a meditation begins they sound the gong, and the letters are in alphabetical order.

Hear a Lot, Say a Lot

I hear a lot
And I say a lot
Few ever look for me
And even fewer ever hear me
I hide in plain sight
Whether its day or night
To help is all I want
But most like to bend me
And as if they had a wand
Never again shall anyone find me
They do this to control
Without realizing the high price of a soul
But when I’m least expected
They’d rather be protected
For there shall be no place to hide
What am I?

The truth.

Guide and Scraping Along

Guided, I am scraping along,
leaving behind my snow white dust
against that which I am scraping,
for when I am scraping, I must.
