The Healing Potential Of ADVERSITY…

The Healing Potential Of ADVERSITY…

Image result for images of a upward spiral

According to my observations of the Rhythm of Life over the past forty-odd years of my paying any real attention to the rhythm and flow of my own life

I have observed that Life is an Upwardly Spiraling Ascension… (See visual above.)

If one follows the spiral on its journey upward…one sees that the spiral takes a downward dip (01) (02) (03) just before it continues its upward journey

And so…before each ascension…the spiral descends downward…Thus it is in this human Journey to Wholeness of Being…regularly…like clockwork…we meet Adversity time after time…as we spiral upward

***

Although these inevitable sojourns into hardshipillnessfinancial struggle and the myriad other devastating events of our lives may feel like Death ItSelf…as if there is no hope…that we are cursed and doomed…these dips in the Spiral are as natural and inevitable as up and downlight and darksummer and wintersun and moon

If we do not lose hope as we stumble through the dark periods of our lives…we shall find…time after time…that we emerge from the darkness strongerwiser…and more powerfully able to ride the inevitable adversities of human existence...victoriously…as we continue on this upwardly spiraling journey  to the “Heavenly Realms” of Consciousness and Existence

Between A Rock And A Hard Place – Photographed by Toni Roberts Central Park, NYC

And so…fear not when once again you find yourself “between a rock and a hard place…”

Do not give in to fearful…negative thoughts…hang on for dear life to that one scrap of deeply buried Hope…use all of your Emotional Energy to renew every bit of forgotten Faith…hang on to the Knowledge that you are not a “human having a spiritual experience…”

But Spirit ItSelf…expressing inas…and through your humanity…

***

Rememberthe Spiral periodically dips downward in its Journey of Ascension

As will your human experience in this man-created world

What Has Your Disease Come To Tell You?

Winter Altar – Arrangement & Photograph by Toni Roberts

My experience with breast cancer some thirteen years ago taught me one thing…without a doubt

Disease is a messenger from the Soul!

Today as I sat before my altar in contemplative meditation…wondering about the cause of this sudden painful stiffness in my right thumb…and recent erratic blood pressure readings…the following Understandings drifted across the landscape of my mind:

All dis-ease is a physical manifestation of internalspiritual and/or psychological conditions…

Arthritis mirrors rigidity…an unwillingness to yield…to bend…to surrender to the realities of your physical existence…resistance and stubbornness…instead of non-resistance and surrender…

High or erratic blood pressure is a manifestation of your reacting emotionally to that which you find unpleasant and unacceptable…instead of rationally accepting that which you cannot change within the limitations of your human power…it is a result of emotionalism…of your repeating dysfunctional emotional patterns modeled by your immature parents…

***

We must learn to accept that which we cannot humanly change

***

Seek within for solutions…ask and you shall be answered…directed by Wisdom higher than the rational mind…

***

Nonresistancesurrenderacceptance…are the keys

***

And so, my Soul imparted this bit of Wisdom which I shall surely follow…for my Soul has never led me astray along this lifelong Journey to Wholeness

***

Whatever your stumbling blocks in life may be…I encourage you to seek within for solutions…for understanding…for guidance and wisdom

And then wait in quiet acceptance for the responding Message from your Soul

For your Soul will never lead you astray

Ase

Isis With Baby Horus – Yemaya and Mary – Altar Arrangement and Photograph by Toni Roberts

Our conquerors taught us that there is nothing sacred in the stars or in the moon…that there is no magic in a singing brook or roaring ocean…no great mysteries in all the changing seasons…not in the glorious, bursting colors of fall…or in the holy silence of a snowy winter day

Our conquerors destroyed our connection with the Mother…taught us to feel shame at our love for HER

Our conquerors replaced IsisOsiris and Horus with a tale about MaryJoseph…and Jesus…their male child…who so resembled our conquerors…

They told us that this Jesus was a “mangod…” to be obeyed and worshipped…

And more than two thousand years later…like obedient children…we still bend our knees in prayer and worship before Jesus the “mangod…” of our conquerors…of those who tortured and murdered our forefathers…raped our foremothers…destroyed our ancient civilizations…stole our gold…silver…and diamond-filled lands…ripping us from our natural and holy way of life…into enslavement

And yet…more than two thousand years later…we continue to repeat the fable…the myth we were taught by our conquerors…

We continue to pray to…and worship his “mangod…”

Who have we become…?

More than two thousand years later…?

We…First Humans of planet earth

Who are we now…? In this new world…?

One created by our conquerors…?

Let us ponder this…this Christmas season…

This season of the “mangod…”

The Christ…

Of our conquerors
