On Relinquishing The Illusion Of Human Rulership…

004

My Sacred Space – Photograph by Toni Roberts

Today…I am in FULL CONNECTION…at peacecalmreceptivenon-resisting…resting in the knowledge that “God’s” got this…all of it…this body with its aches and pains…my finances and other insecurities…the kids…grandkids…my People…my country…the insane, dangerous asshole in the White House with his threat of WWIII…the fate of the planet and all its living beings…

All of this…and so much more…I surrender this day…

I turn it over to Whomever…Whatever…I have no idea…I do not know…all that I do know is that it’s too much for me to carry on these puny human shoulders…

And furthermore…I do not have a clue as to the solution to any of it…So…here…”You” take it…WhoeverWhatever Caused me into being human in this timespace called planet earth

On this day…I quit…I relinquish all belief in human rulership…I replace ego-command…with Divine Command…and rest in the Knowledge that this release triggers…

Your Response

And for that I am most grateful

Ase.

Getting Through Life’s Dark Moments Unscathed…

009

Melancholy – Photograph by Toni Roberts

No more reaching…no more preaching…no more stretching beyond Self

Beyond wherever I find myself at any given moment in TIME

Instead…I waitstill…patient…knowing that we exist in an ever-changing Now

Knowing that there is no need to waste precious Energy in futile attempts to change whatever the current Reality…by means of the human will

Thus it is that I walk this daily path guided by neither desire nor fear

Nor by the egoistic hubris of believing that I have knowledge of what should be

Instead…I humbly partake of whatever distasteful dish that Life presents to me…

Knowing that I have helped prepare it in some hidden kitchen…of my subconscious mind

And so…with one prayerful…careful step after the other…I continue on…at peace…in the darkness of this Great Unknown…with only the Light of my Faith as guide…

“God” Has A Plan…

046

On A Clear Summer Day In My Neighborhood – Photograph by Toni Roberts

As one surrenders every millisecond of one’s Life to Divine Management

Truly “letting go and lettingGod…'”

Releasing all Ego-generated FearsImaginingsPrejudgements….Prejudices…and Preferences

One’s True Life Purpose can then begin to unfold from withinout

Organically...naturally...joyfully…as one’s everyday experiences in the material world

One is then WHOLE…and truly FREE

And that is the Purpose of all of this BEING…and DOING

On Becoming Whole…

The River At Winter – Photography by Toni Roberts

The river at winter…

Makes me weep

 

“Black” boys killing each other…

Makes me weep

 

The genocide of my people…and other people-of-color…

Makes me weep

 

And, how well I know: “Of mine own selfI can do nothing…”

 

And that…

Makes me weep profusely

Double Rainbow Over the River: Hope – Photograph by Toni Roberts

As it also gives me hope

For it is only when I give up the illusion of personal human power

It is in that moment of surrender: bodymind…soul…lifeego...

Surrender of my very Beingness…that I am assured that all is well

And I…and my dusty world are made Whole

Living Day By Day By Day…

In Quiet Contemplation At My Altar – Photography by Toni Roberts

simply letting life flow from the inside out…taking whatever shape IT will…

as I lean back and ride the leisurely waves of EXISTENCE

up and down…in and out…where I’m going…nobody knows…

and that’s perfectly fine with me…for my life is in DIVINE ORDER

I am aligned with the PURPOSE OF THE COSMOS

Ase!
