blessing

of a

view

these

dark days of the soul..”

 

I thank

You

peace of mind

and

stillness of heart

MAJESTY

A Little Something I Have Learned About Disease…

altar-view-028

Contemplation – Photo by Toni Roberts

    or

physical ailments

of any kind…

   by any name:

pharmaceuticals

cannot

heal

the

psychic-emotional

pain

at the root of

all

body-mind-spirit

   in-balances

and

      dis-harmonies

that manifest on the physical level as:

   dis-ease…

the specific disease by whatever name along with whatever symptoms

is simply a

messenger

from the

   soul

   a

call

to look

   within

   as we all well know…

  killing the messenger

      will never solve the problem…

As a Tribal Elder…One who has lived in this flesh body for seventy-eight years…I offer this insight as food for thought…to all of my sisters everywhere who are suffering in pain; and who have accepted the belief that pharmaceuticals can heal the wounds of mind, body and spirit that we have suffered through the ages…and continue to suffer…along with our beloved Gaia…as females of the species.

 

 

As I Sat In The Silence Today…

      as I sat listening within…

contemplating the new life that is about to enter the family…

so soon after the suicide of my beloved grandson…

   I heard these words:

“it is

BLOOD

and not the

CHURCH

or

STATE

that determines and defines what is

FAMILY

and the

“RIGHTNESS”

or

APPROPRIATENESS

   of relationships between and among humans…”

such is the strangeness that drifts into consciousness

when one’s mind sits idle and open…

such a re-making of one’s worldview

such a re-seeing of reality

and

re-ordering

of one’s

cultural indoctrinations

such strangeness

born of a mind and heart not engaged in the mindless madness of the world

such an exquisite awareness of what is

REAL

and what is

   NOT

I’ve Finally Cracked The Great Mystery…And Gained Mastery Over The Torments And Enigmas Of This Human Existence…

I’ve reached

the

bottom-line

of

bottom-lines…

I’ve found

the

   WAY:

     SIT DOWN…SHUT UP

and

   LISTEN…

      for the only way to

KNOWLEDGE

is via the

      INNER PATHWAY…

the way of the

   HEART…

THE WAY

   OUT

        IS ALWAYS…

       IN…

Part II…A New Creation Tale…

Part Two

One day, as was expected, the Wise Being and Her Consort were summoned by the Creatress. It appeared that the Wise Being’s Work on earth was done. She was now needed in another part of the multiverse to help establish a new world. The Couple left behind Their four Daughters, Who each settled in one of the four Lands of the earth and took an earth creature as mate and companion. The Daughters of the Wise Being and Her Holy Consort subsequently gave birth to many more Daughters, who, in turn, married earth creatures and produced many, many, many more Daughters down through the Ages to this very day.

The earth is now filled with the descendant daughters of the daughters of the Daughters of the Daughters of the Wise Being and Her Holy Consort. They are everywhere. And although you cannot know them by the color of their skin, the shape of their noses or by the languages they speak—for they are of all nations and cultures. Rest assured…they are here among us.

So, fear not, even as the fear-motivated warriors rant, rave, make war and reign death and destruction upon the earth and its peoples…threatening the very planet with annihilation. Worry not as the military-prison-pharmaceutical-industrial captains defile and pollute our beloved Gaia.

Be at peace and of goodwill in the midst of the madness, for the daughters of the Wise Being are rapidly awakening from centuries-long sleep. They are coming into the wisdom, knowledge and understanding of who they are and why they are here-now.

And before irreparable damage can be done, the awakened daughters of the Wise Being will band together, sister with sister in a global network…and guided by Their Ancient Mother, they will restore upon the earth—and all of its creatures—the PeaceLove Beauty,  Justice and Harmony that prevailed in the beginning…when the Holy Mother reigned

The end…For now…

the secret of health, wealth and longevity:

when

Life

brings an end to

a

job

a

relationship

a

dream

   etc...

   LET IT GO…

stop trying to resuscitate that which is

  DEAD

release the

PAST

   and move on

This Is What Is Most Difficult…

IT IS THE

SITTING…BREATHING…WAITING…LISTENING…

while impatience and guilt about the

dirty kitchen floor

dirty laundry piling up

and

   this prolonged absence from…

   and longing to return to…

   the kick-ass world of making shit happen…

PLAGUE

   me…

stealing my attention from the

SILENCE

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…
