As We Drove Along A Country Road…

A thought flitted through my mind:

My sole requirement in this life...

All that I need for a life of eternal joy and fulfillment

Is to just be…

   Don’t have to travel…

Moving this body from place to place

Dragging this

Me

From land to land

Seeking the wherewithal

With which to fill an

   Eternal yearning

My travels are here with

YOU

Who lifts me up

Making possible these

Daily Flights

To times and spaces unimaginable to my

Questing heart

Yea

My travels are right here with

YOU

   Beloved river

Ochun

As I Gaze Out Upon The Waters…

I hear these words echoing within:

turn towards that which you desire

then simply hold yourself

open

to receive it

Not so easy to do when the culture teaches:

Set goals!

Short-term!

Long-term!

Make a five-year plan!

And then work like the very devil to materialize it!

All else is

Magical thinking

I say screw the culture!

Kick back

Relax

Enjoy the view

As you seek the “Queendom” within

Knowing that The Mother has knowledge of what we need for

Health, peace, joy, abundance and fullness of life

And that all of these needed things

Shall be added unto us

Realizations While Sitting At My Altar…

Although we each play a unique and necessary role in this life

This life is not about the individual

Not about the part…

But the whole…

If we each turned the focus of our attention

To the discovery of what our unique individual gifts are…

To what it is we came to give

Not get

Then each precious strand of us

Could together weave

A tapestry glorious beyond imagination

What a magnificent world we would create!

For as great as we are as Individual beings...

And nations

How much more could we be

As a collective…a connected whole…

Fueled by that

Which caused us all into being…

All doubt is cleared away as peace descends with the deep realization that

This is my life...this is my time

There is no life or time other than this

Glorious

Now

Another Of Life’s Bitter Pills I’m Being Forced To Swallow…

Photo by Toni Roberts

Photo by Toni Roberts

The only thing that Life is guaranteed to give us

Is what we need

Not necessarily what we want or believe will complete us

Or make us happy

But always…unfailingly

We are given what we need

   No matter how painful or devastating

   And that applies collectively as well as individually

Isn’t it past Time

People

   For us to open our eyes…look around

Photo by Toni Roberts

Photo by Toni Roberts

   And learn the lessons that Life is so dramatically trying to teach us

Poor

Clueless

   Humans?

Melancholy…

Dark

Days

Come to haunt me…

Reflections of my inner state

Another Realization Along This Path To Wholeness…

The Light Dawns; photo by Toni Roberts

The Light Dawns; photo by Toni Roberts

It is imperative that I remember:

   All of the negativity that I see in the outer world…

   Which so disturbs me…

Is simply a reflection of my own

   Internal Shit…

   Which…

it would behoove me to begin

Clearing out immediately, consciously and conscientiously

   Before it all backs up

   And that will not be pretty

   And so…

As I continue on this Path

I remain ever mindful of that which the I Ching teaches:

You cannot fight corruption with corrupt motives

Injustice with self-serving interests

Or lies with hidden deception
