for my growing faith and trust that all in my life is working in balance and unity
for the best and highest good
of the greatest number of people, situations and events
that are entrained with my own
which is Your Frequency
vibrating through…in…as this body-mind-soul:
receiver, communicator, agent, agency…
human transformer of
Energy to matter…
for my growing awareness
and the ability to use my dreams
in the successful living of this life…
for the increased awareness
of all the remaining dark places of my soul
and of the blocks and obstacles that still obstruct my path
the Path that YOU have laid out before me…
for the gifts of time and freedom
in which to sit daily in the Silence
for wise living…
for the growing desire
to be nothing more than
a bringer of light, peace and harmony
to my world…
for the joy and excitement
of an ever-unfolding mystery of being
on this ongoing journey
of expanded consciousness…
WHATEVER YOU ARE…
And I am forever grateful to serve Your Divine and Holy Purpose
however that may manifest in my life…
thank you…thank you…thank you…

The perfect reflector of
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.
As I sit here daily
“altared” at my altar
I am discovering that there is, indeed, Something here in my heart
that responds to me intelligently and oh, so lovingly
as I push valiantly along this path of no signs.
I have HELPERS as real as you and I…
whose words of wisdom and truth
keep me faith-filled and grounded:
God is in charge.
The only sane choice ever…in all matters…is to wait for God to act first.
Keep your focus off of that which you desire.
Turn your attention ever-inward to the Christ Indwelling…
to that “Place” within from which True Life and all Being unfolds.
Remember–you are only a vessel…an instrument…
the vehicle and not the driver…the clay and not the sculptor.
In this endlessly unfolding human drama…
you are neither playwright nor director…
you are merely an actor…and a bit part player, at that.
When you can be perfectly at peace with these Truths of your being…
when you are able to “chop wood and haul water” with joy and gratitude
for being so privileged as to be so used by the Creator…
then and only then will you experience peace beyond understanding and
“yeah, that kind of rich” abundance.
Remove your attention from the world of form and
keep it glued to the Power which underlies
all that you see.
I thank you, my Inner Teachers…Aspects of my Greater Self.
I pledge to You the same faithfulness and constancy that you show me
day by day, step by step as I move prayerfully and cautiously through this life.
And although I cannot see, touch or hear you with my physical senses
I know that You are indeed, with me always
in all ways.
I know beyond a shadow of doubt
that as I continue seeking the “kingdom” within…
all else shall be added unto me.
that Intelligence with which I communicate in these sacred moments…
that mysterious Force that draws me here to this holy spot
above my beloved river
today swollen and
Mother God waging Battle
for the survival of Her children:
all the two and four-legged creatures
all those who crawl or grow
along the Body of Her
hurried along by the wind…
not wise to tarry in danger
and there is much danger
it comes by air
by sight and sound…
visions of madness upon the land…
humanity gone berserk
lost in the lunacy of
their own imaginings…
killer cruelty ruling the earth…
a million lives taken…
a noble mountain leveled…
all the same…
I watch from my perch
high above the rapidly rolling
listening to words of
that flow from That Which Has Taken Up Residence in my
heart and solar plexus…
and then I know…
all is just as it must be…
and so, I kick back
and I am at peace once more…
at-one with my world…
I can leave the battles to God…
I’m in my space…
in my groove…
how I love this “altared” time
this sacred time
this looking in
moment of surrender…
of total submission to
whatever IT is
that caused me
