The Power Of Focused Attention:

Night Prayers – Altar Arrangement & Photograph by Toni Roberts

 

Is there something in your lifemindbody…that you no longer wish to experience?

Try withdrawing your attention from it each time that you find yourself thinking about it.

Instead of dwelling mentally and imaginatively on what you don’t wantswitch your thoughts and inner attention to something about yourself or your life…that makes you feel good.

Do this a “zillion” times a day if you must.

Be patient.

And one day you will suddenly realize:

  • the worrisome condition, circumstances, or person(s) have disappeared
  • you were so involved in newjoyfullife-giving thoughts that you can’t even remember when the troublesome condition…situation…or person…simply vanished

 

You can change your entire life and conditions of the body by simply changing the focus of your attention from what you do not wish to experience…to that which you do.

I’ve been practicing this for at least forty years now…

and although my life has never been trouble-free

I’m still standing

without a walker…or joint replacements

still youthfulvibrantvigorous

and useful

and squeezing every joyful drop of juice I can…

from this mysterious and mystical experience called human life on planet earth

 

(a bit more hard-earned wisdom from this very joyful Elder for you to take

or leave…)

Abundance…

the land sunday 6 26 16 059

“The Land” Photo Nine by Toni Roberts

 

is the natural state of things…

look at the lavish excesses of Nature…

 

it is time for you to get out of your own way…

for it is you

blocking the natural flow of abundance as and through you…

 

remove those stubborn blocks of feardisbelief…and doubt

open up…receive

 

rejoice in the natural abundance of being

Humanity’s Total Reliance On…

science

will be its undoing…

humanity was not created by science…

nor will it be made wholehealed

by science…

but by that which underlies all that is

There Is No Lack…

Moments of Stillness – Photograph by Toni Roberts

when one slows down

and lives moment to moment

one discovers that the PRESENT

is the fulfillment of every need one seeks in some mythical

illusionary

future

 

all that IS

is unfolding RIGHT NOW

moment by moment

breath by breath

 

one has but to slow down

to be

to stay in the MOMENT

where there is no LACK...

only the blessings and joy

of the PRESENT

 

try it!

now is your opportunity to let the LIGHT in…

to learn to SEE

to ILLUMINATE your BLINDSPOTS

 

all that impedes your progress is now made VISIBLE

like memories of past ACHIEVEMENTS

and current DESIRES

 

the LIGHT is now available for you to SEE that YOU are the only BLOCK

the only OBSTACLE…

on your PATH

 

GET OUT OF YOUR OWN WAY

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
