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…?

At Yet Another Crossroad…

Woman At Crossroads – Artwork & Photography by Toni Roberts

Once again

I find myself

at that familiar

CROSSROAD

which path to choose?

do I follow the

Uncharted Path

of my

Soul?

now suddenly silent…

or…

do I take that

well-trodden road

and

follow the lure of the

Western “God-of-Money?”

such a familiar…well-worn path…

one I know so well…

one that inevitably circles back on itself…

leading me once again to this place of

emptiness

this place of

nothing that truly matters

 

   methinks I shall choose differently this time…

and take the

True Path

   tho’ I see nothing but darkness ahead…

   I shall take the “Carlos Castaneda Challenge…”

   and trusting in what I cannot see

   jump off the cliff into the void

 

YES

I shall follow the

   Path of Holiness

of

   Wholeness

the

Path

of

the

   Unknown

the

Path

of

the

   Heart

Today…At My Altar…

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

more

loving

way

of

being

   human

Ase!

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…
