On Relinquishing The Illusion Of Human Rulership…

My Sacred Space – Photograph by Toni Roberts

Today…I am in FULL CONNECTION…at peacecalmreceptivenon-resisting…resting in the knowledge that “God’s” got this…all of it…this body with its aches and pains…my finances and other insecurities…the kids…grandkids…my People…my country…the insane, dangerous asshole in the White House with his threat of WWIII…the fate of the planet and all its living beings…

All of this…and so much more…I surrender this day…

I turn it over to Whomever…Whatever…I have no idea…I do not know…all that I do know is that it’s too much for me to carry on these puny human shoulders…

And furthermore…I do not have a clue as to the solution to any of it…So…here…”You” take it…WhoeverWhatever Caused me into being human in this timespace called planet earth

On this day…I quit…I relinquish all belief in human rulership…I replace ego-command…with Divine Command…and rest in the Knowledge that this release triggers…

Your Response

And for that I am most grateful

Ase.

Getting Through Life’s Dark Moments Unscathed…

009

Melancholy – Photograph by Toni Roberts

No more reaching…no more preaching…no more stretching beyond Self

Beyond wherever I find myself at any given moment in TIME

Instead…I waitstill…patient…knowing that we exist in an ever-changing Now

Knowing that there is no need to waste precious Energy in futile attempts to change whatever the current Reality…by means of the human will

Thus it is that I walk this daily path guided by neither desire nor fear

Nor by the egoistic hubris of believing that I have knowledge of what should be

Instead…I humbly partake of whatever distasteful dish that Life presents to me…

Knowing that I have helped prepare it in some hidden kitchen…of my subconscious mind

And so…with one prayerful…careful step after the other…I continue on…at peace…in the darkness of this Great Unknown…with only the Light of my Faith as guide…

The Healing Potential Of ADVERSITY…

Image result for images of a upward spiral

According to my observations of the Rhythm of Life over the past forty-odd years of my paying any real attention to the rhythm and flow of my own life

I have observed that Life is an Upwardly Spiraling Ascension… (See visual above.)

If one follows the spiral on its journey upward…one sees that the spiral takes a downward dip (01) (02) (03) just before it continues its upward journey

And so…before each ascension…the spiral descends downward…Thus it is in this human Journey to Wholeness of Being…regularly…like clockwork…we meet Adversity time after time…as we spiral upward

***

Although these inevitable sojourns into hardshipillnessfinancial struggle and the myriad other devastating events of our lives may feel like Death ItSelf…as if there is no hope…that we are cursed and doomed…these dips in the Spiral are as natural and inevitable as up and downlight and darksummer and wintersun and moon

If we do not lose hope as we stumble through the dark periods of our lives…we shall find…time after time…that we emerge from the darkness strongerwiser…and more powerfully able to ride the inevitable adversities of human existence...victoriously…as we continue on this upwardly spiraling journey  to the “Heavenly Realms” of Consciousness and Existence

Between A Rock And A Hard Place – Photographed by Toni Roberts Central Park, NYC

And so…fear not when once again you find yourself “between a rock and a hard place…”

Do not give in to fearful…negative thoughts…hang on for dear life to that one scrap of deeply buried Hope…use all of your Emotional Energy to renew every bit of forgotten Faith…hang on to the Knowledge that you are not a “human having a spiritual experience…”

But Spirit ItSelf…expressing inas…and through your humanity…

***

Rememberthe Spiral periodically dips downward in its Journey of Ascension

As will your human experience in this man-created world

FEAR with TRUST...

Trust in that which we cannot see…taste…touch…hear…or smell…

but Whose Presence is felt with every heartbeat...every breath

it is time to TRUST… 

EVERYTHING…

COMES TO PASS…

even those things we neither want…nor like…or think we need in our lives…

 

so…whatever IT is…take a deep breath…and let IT

PASS

 

exactly as IT came to do…
