Power…

A Gathering of Spirit Power – Artwork/Photography by Toni Roberts

AUTHENTIC POWER

Is not power over anything or anyone….

IT is an Essential Creative Force moving inthrough…and as humanity…

working ITS will…within us…changing our world for the better

in mysterioushidden ways…

Is the TIME not Now that we humans put aside our bloated…misguided Egos and allow AUTHENTIC POWER to manifest inthrough…and as all that we think…say…do…and areaccording to ORIGINAL DESIGN…?

Today At My Altar… – Photo by Toni Roberts

 

under the sacred guidance of the Ancestors

whose spirits yet live within the heart of this woman…

I reconnected with…rededicated my soul to…

the Divine Mystery of Creation

todayat my altar

I re-pledged my life to

the

Great Renovation

now underway…

right hereright now

in this “melting pot” of humanity…

amidst the turmoildarkness…and confusion

the “Gods” are “cooking up

   a new people

   a new

   “race…”

 

bringers

of

a

   new dawn

a

   kinder

Altars and Meditation…

Night Altar – Altar Arrangement and Photograph by Toni Roberts

 

Some view my altars and ask…

is she pagan?…

does she worship idols?…

My altars simply serve as a focal point during

MEDITATION

The candle flame draws me in…

It becomes a focal point…

My attention becomes single-focused

A requisite for deep

MEDITATION

The statues and other objects lend their unique and special energies

For everythinghuman or otherwise

is

   ENERGY…

ENERGY

is all there is…

One’s visual attention…drawn by the candle flame

remains focused on the altar…

while all of one’s conscious attention is focused on following one’s breath

simply breathe

in…and out…in…and out…in and out…

one follows one’s breath as one’s thoughts

become travellers along the pathway of the mind…

drawing no more attention than passing traffic on a highway…

simply breathe

 

in…and out…in…and out…in…and out…in and out…in…and out…in…and out…

one’s only job is to breathe

as one surrenders the ignorance of the human ego

to the

WISDOM

of the

INDWELLING DIVINE

simply breathe

in…and out…in…and out…in…and out…in…and out…in…and out…in…and out…

“Woman At Crossroads”

Woman At Crossroads – Artwork/Photography by Toni Roberts

 

” Woman At Crossroads” –There are those times in all of our lives when we come to a Crossroad…do I go left or right? This job or that one? Chemo or no chemo? Live or die?

You would think that after 79 years of living this human drama, a woman would be spared life’s complexities and dilemmas. That one’s sunset years could be spent in play; drumming, dancing on the summer grass, experiencing only the joys of life…loving…simply being…

That’s not the way of this journey in the Third Dimension. And I am finally learning to embrace Life’s challenges; to welcome each Crossroad, regardless of how challenging a choice I must make as I continue on this twisting, winding journey of unexpected events, people and circumstances.

These days, when I reach that inevitable Fork In The Road, I find my Spirit Companions right there waiting for me. Mother Goddess, my Guardian Angel, my Orisha, Elegua…and Love ItSelf. Right there in the Silence of my heart…waiting for me to ask: Which Path is my path to Fulfillment of Purpose in being in this Here-Now? All it takes is the asking. The acknowledgement that I DO NOT KNOW. And in that surrender to a Wisdom higher than my human Ego, I am led; step by step, day by day, breath by breath into a new and expanded experience of being human on planet earth.

Let us never forget that the Ancestors are always here to guide us. We need only to stop pretending that we have the answers…and ASK. Ashe.
