I was going through my bookcases earlier today in search of a book that I did not find. Instead, I came upon an old, yellowed book of poetry: SOUNDS OF YOURSELF by Theta Burke. (Copyright 1977 by Theta Burke. Publisher: Delafield Press.) I had made a notation on the title page that the book was a gift from…either Larry or Surry in May of 1979. My handwriting is abominable and my memory not much better for I remember neither a Larry nor a Surry. My apologies to whomever it was who obviously knew my spirit so well.

The poet speaks to my heart. It’s as if her thoughts and words were lifted from my own soul. I hope you get the same pleasure as I from Ms. Burke’s deep understanding of this journey we share as human beings. You will be seeing more of her work in future blogs.

The following poem is from the last section of the book entitled: CONTEMPLATION. I dedicate it to all of you seekers of eternal youth.

Sometimes it appears

that concern with the accumulation of years

is more prevalent with those

who have sought gratification

from physical attributes

and fear their deterioration.

 

They are ageless

whose beauty of mind

has properly assigned priorities

so that the  passing of the years

only adds facets

which contribute to the richness of the glow.”

Spring Blossoms – Photo by Toni Roberts

I realized today, as I walked the beautiful grounds of the co-op in which I live, that this Great Mystery we name “God” or “Mother Nature,” has, indeed, gifted us humans with all we really need. And that I am here on earth not to “earn my living” but to serve the living. And for this Holy Work, I am automatically paid from “God’sStorehouse of never-ending abundance.

Take time out today to enjoy the beauty of being alive on this magnificent planet earth.

Healing Altar – Photo by Toni Roberts

Sitting at my Healing Altar in my Sacred Space is a daily ritual. Were it not for the time spent each day sitting in the Silence surrounded by my Companions-in-Spirit, I would surely be a mad woman. As it is, this daily ritual anchors me to the Divine within; and sets the Tone and Energy of my day. And each day, one step at a time, I move slowly towards total and complete At-One-Ment with That Which Causes All There Is Into Being. I am learning that life is a process and that “God” is who I am.
