Sunset on the Hutchinson River…photo by Toni Roberts

none

of

   it…

not one moment of the entire

77

years

of

it

was ever about

the

writing

or

the

   doing...

it was

 always…

in

all

  ways…

solely

about the

   being...

about the

experience

itself…

A Second Day Of Blazing Glory!

What a privilege

Indeed for

My eyes to so feast

Upon all this glory

What have I done to deserve it?

   Nothing more than breathing in and breathing out…

And even that is not done by the “i” who writes these words

Thank You

Whatever

Mother Nature?

For the glory upon which these eyes

   This day feast…

This exquisite view of the Hutchinson River

The Long Island Sound

And the ever-changing Wetlands

Never ceases to fascinate and enthrall

Day after day

Season after season

Year after year of my life

Witnessing

The shifts in my soul

That keep time with the changing seasons

Today is a day of honoring

Mother Nature as She

Signals the approach of

Death

In a wild and vivid display of

Outrageous Color!

You go, Girl!

Truth Seeking…

highway traffic

highway traffic

 

sitting here at my window altar

watching the traffic

inch along the highway

towards the bridge

bridge traffic

bridge traffic

 

so grateful that

i am here

and not there…

here sitting in the Silence

listening

seeking truth…wisdom…guidance

from within

what Truths shall these grateful ears behold

this day?

and then I hear

the whisper of that familiar voice:

that which you seek

in the world

is  ever-attainable…

and has always-resided

in the

unexplored

recesses

of

your

heart…

the journey for which you came

is to the center of

your being

where lay

unimagined

and yet unexplored

hidden

treasures…

the way out is always in

 

A Day of Perfect Being…

After The Rain…Light…Understanding…

after the rain...

after the rain…

 

Instead of drumming this Saturday, I spent quiet time at my window altar–with the river.

Rising above the chatter of my “monkey brain,” I sat in the peaceful silence of my rain-washed world–listening within:

This drumming, my dear–just like the words that you write–comes through you. You, the ego-personality, are not the owner of your creative productions. The words, and sounds come through you from a Source that also determines the why, what, when, where and how of it all.

Do not attempt to order your gifts; trying to determine whence they come and go.

Life is not yours to order. It is yours to remain open, receptive and in service to That Which lies behind, beneath, above and at each side of all form. 

You are learning to understand–and more importantly–to accept and live a reality which is the only authentic Reality there is.

It is a process of opening the heart in trust and releasing the pain you did not know was there.

It is truly living from the inside out: letting your 3-D world unfold in, as and through you; bypassing the ego.

It is not the human way  of being. 

It is a process of “un-conditioning” the mind.

Have patience with yourself.

I am with you.

We are with you.
