one woman's journey to wholeness…

Coniunctio…

I Am Mother…Earth…Giver of Life…Drawing/Photograph by Toni Roberts

She, speaking softly

From the folds

Of the wet, dark place

Tells of Her thousand pleasures

 

What perverse misconstruction, asks She

Tells you that I am not the Center?

The seat of your being…of Life itself?

Why know you not that mine is the passageway to Heaven?

Through mine Divine Portal

The breath of life blows

To scatter seeds

Of Being

 

What say You? Asks He

This talk of Holy Entrance?

The Seat of Life?

The Passageway to Heaven?

The Way to Heaven is through Me

What know You of pleasure, indeed?

You, who are bound to earth

To moaning, groaning, writhing and wailing

In ecstasies of the flesh…

What know You of the pleasure

Of a bursting star?

Of universes that explode into being

From molten lava

Which rises from my Peak?

 

Fool above

I hear You speak…

Know You not the Source

Of the sun-kissed fluid

That ignites within You the spark of Life?

A sad and lifeless sack of dry grey matter

Would You be

Were it not

For Me

 

Great Slut below,

O Wanton One of earth and flesh

Dare You imply

That rank and reeking place

Where You reside

The Source

Of my sweet elixir of life?

 

To be sure, My Lord

That’s what I speak…

Come down to see

How from a thousand Ecstasies

Flows the golden fluid

So vital to

Both You and Me

 

What say You, O’ Fierce and Fearless Ruler

Of the Realm above?

Pierce this dark, warm wetness

Of my Being

With your shaft of Light…

Descend to me so that I may envelope You

In all the sweetness of my ecstasy…

So that I may whisper in your fair ear

Of a thousand unknown things…

 

Let me wrap my huge, dark loins

About Your stiff, unyielding back

And ride upon You

Waves of endless joy…

Pleasure greater than the bursting stars

Of infinite universes

Is Yours to have

For acceptance of my Realm

As the Path to Immortality

 

Lower Yourself, my Fearless One

Into the deep, dark waters of my Being

Penetrate deeply with the flame

Of your raging passion

Explode within

My

Center

 

Though resist He tries

Her liquid words have set Him

All a quiver…

He turns this way, then that

Yet is sucked like shavings by a magnet

Through the Portals

Of Her Secret Place

 

Pray not, He moans

To be forever trapped

In fleshly prison

This Light

That once

Was

I

As I Rapidly Approach Age 80…

fall altar 064

Fall Altar – Healing Altars by Toni Roberts – Altar Arrangement & Photography by Toni Roberts

I watch from the sidelines…

As my contemporaries begin to drop…

One by one…

From the sheer exhaustion of life…

We have reached that stage…

Human culture calls:

Old Age…”

 

As a participating observer in my own life…

I see clearly that these sunset years are merely a Time-In-Life

In which we humans are presented with the choice TO DO or TO DIE

 

The “DOING” requires a complete and total surrender

An At-One-Ment

With the Great Mystery from which all Existence flows

 

The “DYING” is the consequence of not “DOING…”

It is a slow…and usually painful process

In which the Soul withdraws from the human body

Its temporary home

To return to the SOURCE OF ALL THERE IS

EVER WAS… and EVER SHALL BE

 

I…of course…have chosen to DO…and look forward to whatever the “GODS” have in store for me in this re-birth…in this 8th chapter of the life of Toni Robertsfemale…human…resident of a wild and crazy place called planet earth!

We Are Our Own “Oracles…”

In Contemplation of GoddessHood – Artwork & Photograph by Toni Roberts

 

When first the Goddess-Self begins to awaken …

We sense a quickening of the Soul at the HEART and SOLAR PLEXUS...

We then run to the corner Witch or Spiritual Advisor

So that she may consult her Oracles

On our behalf…

 

Never for a moment do we stop to realize…

That we, too, have access to the same…

GodsGoddessesOracles and Holy Beings…”

As does the neighborhood Consejera

 

Instead, how about trying something different the very next time you are confronted with an insurmountable challenge…one way beyond your human ability to comprehendmuch less solve?

How about trying this?

First…

Turn off all gadgets…

All media…

All means of communication…

Let there be no distractions from total attention…

And concentration…

On your own mind…

And body…

 

Next…

Sit your busy ass down…

Shut your mouth…

And think about the situation that has you in such a panic…

YES…actually think about it…Instead of trying to escape it…

 

*DO NOT take any substance

That is unnatural to the human body

In order tocalm your nerves…”

Orrelax your mind…”

 

Now…

BREATHE

Simply breathe

As you watch yourself breathing

 

FEEL the Breath-of-Life moving into your nostrils

Expanding your belly (not your chest)…

Filling your lungs…

Distributing Life-Giving Oxygen

To every nook and cranny of your being…

Breathe LIFE

In…and out…

In and out…

Nothing exists but you…

Breathing…

Life Itself

 

Watch your thoughts as they pass through your mind…

As you would watch traffic on a highway

They are not you…these thoughts

They are simply thoughts…moving through your mind

Do not engage with them emotionally

Instead…watch them running through your mind…

Like little drunken monkeys

The same thoughts…running mindlessly…

Back and forth …back and forth…

Across the highway of your mind

 

Just breathe

 

 

If you have gotten this far…Awakening One

You are well on your way to contacting La Diosa AdentroYour Inner Goddess-Self

Your very own private…Personal Oracle

She Who Dwells at the center of your being

 

Your next steps will soon follow…

 

In the meantime…Goddess-in-training

Keep on breathingBreath by Holy Breath

As you continue to move…through this Mystery of human Life on planet earth…

Step by stepbreath by breath

At Yet Another Crossroad…

Woman At Crossroads – Artwork & Photography by Toni Roberts

Once again

I find myself

at that familiar

CROSSROAD

which path to choose?

do I follow the

Uncharted Path

of my

Soul?

now suddenly silent…

or…

do I take that

well-trodden road

and

follow the lure of the

Western “God-of-Money?”

such a familiar…well-worn path…

one I know so well…

one that inevitably circles back on itself…

leading me once again to this place of

emptiness

this place of

nothing that truly matters

 

   methinks I shall choose differently this time…

and take the

True Path

   tho’ I see nothing but darkness ahead…

   I shall take the “Carlos Castaneda Challenge…”

   and trusting in what I cannot see

   jump off the cliff into the void

 

YES

I shall follow the

   Path of Holiness

of

   Wholeness

the

Path

of

the

   Unknown

the

Path

of

the

   Heart
