one woman's journey to wholeness…

As I Sat In The Silence Today…

      as I sat listening within…

contemplating the new life that is about to enter the family…

so soon after the suicide of my beloved grandson…

   I heard these words:

“it is

BLOOD

and not the

CHURCH

or

STATE

that determines and defines what is

FAMILY

and the

“RIGHTNESS”

or

APPROPRIATENESS

   of relationships between and among humans…”

such is the strangeness that drifts into consciousness

when one’s mind sits idle and open…

such a re-making of one’s worldview

such a re-seeing of reality

and

re-ordering

of one’s

cultural indoctrinations

such strangeness

born of a mind and heart not engaged in the mindless madness of the world

such an exquisite awareness of what is

REAL

and what is

   NOT

Part II…A New Creation Tale…

Part Two

One day, as was expected, the Wise Being and Her Consort were summoned by the Creatress. It appeared that the Wise Being’s Work on earth was done. She was now needed in another part of the multiverse to help establish a new world. The Couple left behind Their four Daughters, Who each settled in one of the four Lands of the earth and took an earth creature as mate and companion. The Daughters of the Wise Being and Her Holy Consort subsequently gave birth to many more Daughters, who, in turn, married earth creatures and produced many, many, many more Daughters down through the Ages to this very day.

The earth is now filled with the descendant daughters of the daughters of the Daughters of the Daughters of the Wise Being and Her Holy Consort. They are everywhere. And although you cannot know them by the color of their skin, the shape of their noses or by the languages they speak—for they are of all nations and cultures. Rest assured…they are here among us.

So, fear not, even as the fear-motivated warriors rant, rave, make war and reign death and destruction upon the earth and its peoples…threatening the very planet with annihilation. Worry not as the military-prison-pharmaceutical-industrial captains defile and pollute our beloved Gaia.

Be at peace and of goodwill in the midst of the madness, for the daughters of the Wise Being are rapidly awakening from centuries-long sleep. They are coming into the wisdom, knowledge and understanding of who they are and why they are here-now.

And before irreparable damage can be done, the awakened daughters of the Wise Being will band together, sister with sister in a global network…and guided by Their Ancient Mother, they will restore upon the earth—and all of its creatures—the PeaceLove Beauty,  Justice and Harmony that prevailed in the beginning…when the Holy Mother reigned

The end…For now…

none

of

   it…

not one moment of the entire

77

years

of

it

was ever about

the

writing

or

the

   doing...

it was

 always…

in

all

  ways…

solely

about the

   being...

about the

experience

itself…

the

Since I Now Know…

that the

answer

is contained

within the

   I simply

ask…

   lean back…

   relax…

and say

YES

to the

   Gemini Moon…

in the fullness of

Your Light

the hidden self

   is revealed…

and as the dark self wanes before

   Your Brilliance…

the

Goddess Self

   expands…

illuminating the world

with the

    Healing Light

of

   Your Love…

I Am Slowly Learning…

to stop trying to push

the rivers of my life…

   to simply let them

flow

as

they

    will…

   arriving at their own destinations…

   unfolding in their own time…

Breathing In With The Waxing, Crescent Moon…

May 9, 2016…14% Waxing, Crescent Moon; Stock Photograph

   I must remember…

this is the time of the

  in-breath…

of filling up with

   Light…

   of taking in…

   strengthening…

   building up…

   restoring…

 a time of  regeneration… 

the time of the

out-breath

shall return with the

fullness of Mother Moon

It will then be my time return to the world

   empowered…

ready to

   build…create

slay dragons…

but for now…I focus on the

   in-breath…taking in…

resisting the temptation of trying

to carry my dreams from

imagination to physical form

by

dint

of

human power

   alone…

yes…

the time for action will come

   but for now…

the

    in-breath
