It’s “All In…” Or Nothing At All…

African Rising – Pencil Drawing/Collage/Photography by Toni Roberts


It has become crystal clear to me…

That the “bottom line” on this Journey to Wholeness

Is the degree to which one is willing…and able

To surrender one’s human Will




Although Clear and Present in one’s life…

Cannot be seentouchedtastedsmelled…or heard

Except by Supernatural means…


That is the Test

The Ultimate Test

In this Game…called Human Life on Planet Earth


One is either…“all in…”

Or not in the Game…at all…but simply lost in the confused creations of a frightened Ego

And ‘round and ‘round you go…

Arriving nowhere



It’s definitely…all in…” or nothing at all…in this Game of Life

There is no middle ground…

This Fleshly Life…

Is not about the pursuit of fame and fortune…nor is it about securing the right mate and proper number of children

No…that’s not at all what being present in a flesh body is about…


If one lives long enough…and grows Wise with the years instead of…just old

One discovers the true nature of this Life

One learns that Life… at Its Fundamental Basis

Is about learning to use one’s Divinely-Bestowed-Gifts… and Natural Talents

In service to humanity…and not…oneself

One learns through Life’s not-so-easy-lessons…how to live as a Vehicle of whatever IT is that creates and sustains all that we perceive as reality

It is then…that one finds oneself living a FEAR-FREE Life…a life of FreedomOrder…and body-mind-soul Balance

A Life of being in the right place…always at the right time…doing something ecstatically joyful…with the exactly the right people

And all of this achieved without conscious effortplanning…or intention…on the part of the Ego

Life has then become a seamless flow…an effortless living from withinfrom a Place of Mystery and Light…from the Inside…watching in wonderment as the experience of being human shifts and alters

Until Life Itself is a kind of “Heaven” lived right here and now…on Earth

Who Is To Say…?

“Creation” – Collage/Drawing/Photography by Toni Roberts

Who is to say what is the Dream and what is the Life…? 

Are the vivid events of my so-called sleeping mind not in Truth the Life…? 

While this planet Earth…this hell of confusion…to which I awaken each morn…

Is this not the Dream…? 

Nay…the Nightmare…?

 Who is to say what is the Dream…?

 And what is the Life…?

 Who is so sure…?

 Who is so certain…?

It Is Only When One Begins…

to catch a vision beyond one’s own creature needspreferencesambitions...desires…and goals

in other words…

when one’s concerns extend beyond mememe

and one’s attention turns within…to seek something highersomething more meaningfulthan…Self

that one is finally ready to take…those first first baby steps toward Self-Knowledge



for the Ego cannot gain entry to the Higher Realms

into the Sacred Knowledge of the whowhat…and why…of human existence on planet earth


lift up your visionseek higher than this human realm for understanding...

lift up your vision into the Higher Realms of Consciousnessreach higher…and even higher

for the truth that lies beyond the limits of earthly concerns…

reach higher…






Some Thoughts On Old Age…Disease…And Dying…

The other day, during a telephone conversation (Yes, some of us still have telephone conversations…via landlines, no less.) an old friend of mine asked: “So what are you up to these days?” She had just finished describing her days of managing an “illness”—which she fully owned years ago—along with all the other obstacles and mundane matters of living in this world.

After listening to my list of daily activities, i.e., my daily spiritual practice; blogging, crafting one-of-a-kind necklaces; my attempts at creating a website—where I can sell these necklaces—plus my photography projects; and on and on and on. Poor thing I wanted to say to her, “No, my love. Keeping busy is what you do. I, on the other hand, am continuing to engage LIFE thus holding this body mind-soul back from that inevitable process of breaking down and withering away into dust…that process we call disease and dying…and which we anticipate happening to us when we reach what we humans call “old age.”  (And that varies with one’s mindset and lifestyle!)

But, of course, good breeding prevented me from saying any of that. Plus, I knew that I always had my Blog: and this Facebook Page: in which to vent!

Thank you, for bearing with me. But please, think about it. How is it that some of us can move joyfully, healthily and actively into our seventies and eighties…while most others of us begin the disease and dying process, right-on-time, as if programmed to do so?

Comments are welcome!

Ah…and one more thing…before you start talking about DNA and genes…do a bit of research into the latest findings in the field of Epigenetics.
