Advice from Marley and the Grandfather – Photograph by Toni Roberts

So…do keep in mind…

In the midst of all this panic and confusionlies...and evil-doings…

Before you lose your mind completely

Remember…

The only Constant is Change

 

Nothing will be tomorrow…

What it is today…

Or today…

What it was yesterday…

For the only Constant is Change

 

So…just…chill

For you will be of no use at all tomorrow…

Whatever it brings

If you f*!#%*ing lose it today…

 

Remember…

The only Constant…

is

Change

This Fleshly Life…

Window Altar – Arrangement/Photograph by Toni Roberts

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

Non-Resistance…

Sitting At The Window…Cloud-Gazing – Photography by Toni Roberts

Life is a series of adversities followed by abundant blessings…which cycle right back into adversity…the sun rises and then darkness descends…such is the rhythm and nature of human existence. We who would hope to emerge unscathed from Life’s ups and downs must learn to bend…non-resistance…acceptance…lest we be broken by the ill-winds of misfortune

Some Thoughts On Old Age…Disease…And Dying…

Moon Shine

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: https://toniroberts.wordpress.com and this Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/gaiadaughters 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.

Thinking About Love Again Today…

wondering why our love was not enough to keep

beloved grandson

here

in this

   flesh life

came to the  realization

that human love is simply not enough

to keep the

soul

wedded

to

human flesh

for without that

   Essential Ingredient

that everlasting influx of

   LOVE…

of the

DIVINE KIND…

these flesh suits we wear are merely

empty

sacks

of

meaningless

   protoplasm
