I realized today, as I walked the beautiful grounds of the co-op in which I live, that this Great Mystery we name “God” or “Mother Nature,” has, indeed, gifted us humans with all we really need. And that I am here on earth not to “earn my living” but to serve the living. And for this Holy Work, I am automatically paid from “God’sStorehouse of never-ending abundance.

Take time out today to enjoy the beauty of being alive on this magnificent planet earth.

Life Is A Process…And “God” Is Who I Am…

Sitting at my Healing Altar in my Sacred Space is a daily ritual. Were it not for the time spent each day sitting in the Silence surrounded by my Companions-in-Spirit, I would surely be a mad woman. As it is, this daily ritual anchors me to the Divine within; and sets the Tone and Energy of my day. And each day, one step at a time, I move slowly towards total and complete At-One-Ment with That Which Causes All There Is Into Being. I am learning that life is a process and that “God” is who I am.

behind every story

made up by my

fear-driven-ego

is a

God-Created-Event

waiting to

unfold…

On This Day…I Unseat…

“Resistance Is Futile”

the events of this day have brought me to the realization that

LIFE is what IT is…

and I may as well learn how to “roll with the punches” because

“nobody promised me a rose garden…”

I am accepting this reality…

kickingscreaming and crying all the way…

however, even I can see that my sole rolelessontask

in this Great Drama Unfolding

is to maintain my center…my equilibrium

in the midst of

pain

confusion

and

chaos

Resistance is, indeed, futile

thus, with all the

ups and downs

ins and outs

good and evil

love and fear

confusion and indecision

of this life as a human on planet earth

I am doing my damnedest

to

hold to the center

like the Charioteer in the Tarot

holding to the middle line

allowing

the

GODS

to steer the

Chariot

by

the

GRACE of GOD

On Death By Suicide…

River…Post-Davin; photo by Toni Roberts; copyright 2016

the loss of my beloved grandson

who last month

at the tender age of twenty-one

exercised

free will

his by divine right

and chose to exit this world quickly…

via a bullet to the head...

Got me thinking about

death by suicide…

and how all humans leave this realm

via death by suicide

   consciously…by their own hand

or unconsciously…

blaming their leave-taking on Fate or “God…”

forgetting that we are all creatures of

free will

   and that nothing

not even death is imposed upon us by some

mysterious all-powerful Force

It is we who knowingly or unknowingly

create these painful, ghastly, unimaginable  dis-eases

that debilitate and devour our our bodies

system by system…

organ by organ…

in a slow death by suicide...

Indeed…by the use or misuse of free will…

all death is by our daily decisions and choices

although my heart breaks at the thought of the degree of unendurable psychic pain

that drove my beloved to so quickly end this earthly sojourn…

this shared here-now…

I grant him his right of

conscious exercise of 

free-will…

And I here-now bless the Essence of the boy-man I so loved

on Its continued journey
