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

Slip silently into your cocoonAs does the wise caterpillar 

Allow the mystery of self-transformation to occur within the secret darkness of cocoon-turned-womb 

Emerge reborntransformed 

Butterfly-in-flight…

On Becoming Whole…

The River At Winter – Photography by Toni Roberts

The river at winter…

Makes me weep

 

“Black” boys killing each other…

Makes me weep

 

The genocide of my people…and other people-of-color…

Makes me weep

 

And, how well I know: “Of mine own selfI can do nothing…”

 

And that…

Makes me weep profusely

Double Rainbow Over the River: Hope – Photograph by Toni Roberts

As it also gives me hope

For it is only when I give up the illusion of personal human power

It is in that moment of surrender: bodymind…soul…lifeego...

Surrender of my very Beingness…that I am assured that all is well

And I…and my dusty world are made Whole

A Bit of Wisdom from a Tribal Elder…

008

In Memoriam – Rest In Peace Beloveds – Altar/Photo by Toni Roberts

I have finally learned that when I do not know what to do…

To do nothing

In the past…whenever I impatiently pushed forward out of restlessnessuncertaintyfeardoubt or confusion

Not really knowing WTF

I wound up ultimately creating just another dead-end of darkness, uncertainty and confusion

All over again…

It took me all of these years in the School of Hard Knocks…to finally get it

I now know to sit and breath into the empty gap between what was…and what will be…in calm equanimity…while accepting the Ego’s discomfort…

Until…eventually…the next experience unfolds…naturallyorganicallyinas…and through me…

Without the schemesplans…and self-profiting manipulations of the Ego

Bottom line: every thing…every person…every circumstance…every event….every situation in our lives…just as it is…has come to pass…and will passon its own…and all we have to do…as we used to say in my day…

Is chill
