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

“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.
