Friday The Thirteenth…

altar-019

Sunset Friday the Thirteenth – Photo by Toni Roberts

 

usually my lucky day

not so

   this day…

finally stopped trying to squeeze

satisfaction

out of

misery

and simply sat in the

   Stillness…

   and with

mind

disengaged

  I watched the sun set…

with the descent of darkness

I found

   peace…

When A Lone Bird…

Image result for image lone bird flying by window

flies by my window

I wonder

   where it is going…

does it fly with

destination

&

purpose

in

mind?

or does it fly

simply

because

it

can?

New Year…New Life…New Way of Being…

I spent so many years of my life

turned outward

looking to the world for a way out of the

misery

of

existence…

searching outside of

Self

for the answers…

      for the solutions to life’s dilemmas…

   another job…

   in the classroom…

   out of the classroom…

   to the corporate world…

 no!

the non-profits!

back and forth up and down round and round

until finally

battered

beaten

bruised

   knocked down…but not out…

by stage 3 breast cancer

   I gave up…

   gave in…

surrendered

to

WHATEVER IT IS

THAT

CAUSED ME INTO

BEING

   in the first place…

  and since then…

IT and i

   have been caught up in a loving embrace…

totally and completely

   AT-ONE…

 

i have relinquished the lead

and now follow that

   Inner Directive…

   right out of the box of the past…

into a new year

a new life

   a new way of being

Happy 2016 to one and all!

A Day Of Inner Peace…Amidst Outer Turmoil…

Peace

 beyond understanding

is mine

as I drink with great thirst

   at an Inner Fountain

a Source of Holy Nourishment

deep…deep within the center of my being

and thus I experience

that peace beyond understanding

of which the Master Teacher

and all the

Sages

Prophets

and

Holy Ones

spoke

a Peace

whose Truth must be lived

within the heart of each of us

one by one by one…

   even as the world erupts around us…

until the Whole of Us

apprehends that

authentic

peace

which lies beyond

      understanding…

New Life

Urged by the Sun

From the Darkness of the

Mother’s Womb

I behold in wonderment

Another spring

Another rebirth of Self

The 76th

In this unbelievably

Magical Journey

Called:

   Life as a human female on planet earth

Each spring

Each exquisite rebirth

Orgasmic

In its living

As I move

   Non-resisting

  In total surrender

Allowing

Letting

Permitting

The full richness of the

   Flow of Life…

With its deepening of

   understanding…accepting…

Integration of  the who and what

With the whence and why

Of my

Be-ing

I am to

Life

What a droplet of

Ocean spray

   Is to the

   Ocean...

Just Breathe…

there is Something

that will take care of us

lovingly

abundantly

so that our stay here on earth

is filled with

more joy than sadness

more pleasure

than pain

This illusory

intangible

It

this wispy

holy energy

this Spirit

of all things

cannot be found in the

3-D

all that we humans

have been searching for:

someone to love us

someone to care for us

to treasure us

and treat us

as if our living

   matters…

all that we seek

can only be found

as we divorce ourselves

from this

addictive dependence upon

the world and its ways

let us learn to

disengage

consciousness

from the allure…

the hypnotic glamour

of an

illusory

man-made

hell

let us seek from the

True Source

closer than one’s heartbeat

waiting for discovery

   just breathe

Oh, Sweet Mystery Of Life…

Life

Keeps on keeping on

Even when finding

Itself

Between a rock and a hard place

The Secret:

Trust

Faith

Non-resistance

Letting go

Allowing

Permitting

   Sweet Surrender…
