as your body flys through the air…

after a “Don Juan” leap of Faith

off the mountain of FEAR

 

you will land somewhere…

intact

and more Whole...

a

day

 step by step

giving over

of

one’s

Being

to

whispered

inner

messages

of

 unity

and

love

plus…

the

  UNCONDITIONAL

surrender

of

the

totality

of

one’s

   BEING

an

I Am Learning To Accept The TRUTH…

Morning Altar – Arrangement & Photograph by Toni Roberts

 

That I do not know what will happen in the next moment…much less tomorrow…

And so…I turn inward to That Which knows all there is to know

To That Which will deliver me safely

Into all of my tomorrows

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…
