On Death and Rebirth…

006

With every Death

There is a Re-Birth

For ENERGY does not Die

IT simply changes Form…

And we humans are nothing more than ENERGY in Ex-pression as these flesh bodiesas is all else that we behold in this Dimension of Realty…

So let us not hold fast

Neither in heartmindnor body

To that which must die

In order that the clean…goodlovingkind…beautiful…and whole

May be Ex-pressed anew

In

As

and

Through

All that we ThinkSayAre…and Do

Fear not…

Let go of all Illusion…

And be Born Anew…

We Are The Miracle For Which We Pray…

A Gathering Of Spirit Power – Collage/Staging/Photography by Toni Roberts

Those of us who are waiting for some human-created, mythical, man-god to perform a miracle…leading us out of the hell we have established upon this planet…have been grossly misled…for this “God…” whatever “It” is…acts inas…and through us…and not for us…at our request…For we are the “actors…” and “God…” the Actor

In other words…“there ain’t gon’ be no miracle” unless and until we get up off our knees and letGod” use our bodiesminds and souls…for “It’sDivine Purpose…to achieve “God’sAIMS…and not ours…for we are here to do “God’sWork…and not vice versa

If enough of us let go of that mysticalmagical thinking upon which we were suckled…we might reverse the direction in which humanity is now heading with maniacal speed…Perhaps the time has come for us to SIT DOWNSHUT UPTURN OFF ALL OUTSIDE GADGETS  and STIMULI…all that fear-mongering gibberish that keeps us glued to the cell phone and TV…and instead…turn quietly within…to the Silence of our Hearts…Asking: What can I do? How may I help? What…my “God…” would “You” have me do with this life that belongs to “You…?”

For we are flesh…the body… created by this Great Mystery some call “God…” to follow…and not to direct

Maybe…just maybe…if…in the midst of our human hubris…we stop and assume the proper position as regards “God” and man…we may be able to turn events away from the dangerous course upon which we find ourselves…before we have achieved total and complete self-annihilation

One thing…for sure…This Great Mystery…this UnnamableIntelligentOmnipresentOmnipotentOmniscientEnergy underlying  all Beingcannot…and will not be destroyed

And once we humans destroy ourselves…as we seem intent upon doing…

It” will simply create a new…and hopefully…more intelligent creature than we humans proved to be…

I Have Finally Surrendered…

Altar To My Ladies – Arrangement/Photograph by Toni Roberts

The futility of trying to teach my language to those just learning to speak 

I will instead wait in patience for the day that my ears ring with familiar words

 Uttered by strangers

 Then…I shall know that I have reached the “Promised Land…”

 Where dwelleth my Soul Kin

 My Family…which art on Earth

 Ase.

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…?
