The Invisible Substance Of Beingness

Creation – Penci Drawing/Photo by Toni Roberts

I strongly suspect

that all that I refer to as:

I

Me

Mine

is merely an

empty

mold

into which

THE INVISIBLE SUBSTANCE OF BEINGNESS

is

poured

 

 

 

 

 

 

What I Heard Today While Sitting…Breathing…Waiting…Listening…

the secret of health, wealth and longevity:

when

Life

brings an end to

a

job

a

relationship

a

dream

   etc...

   LET IT GO…

stop trying to resuscitate that which is

  DEAD

release the

PAST

   and move on

   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…

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

On Death By Suicide…

river post davin 3 18 16 012

River…Post-Davin; photo by Toni Roberts; copyright 2016

the loss of my beloved grandson

who last month

at the tender age of twenty-one

exercised

free will

his by divine right

and chose to exit this world quickly…

via a bullet to the head...

Got me thinking about

death by suicide…

and how all humans leave this realm

via death by suicide

   consciously…by their own hand

or unconsciously…

blaming their leave-taking on Fate or “God…”

forgetting that we are all creatures of

free will

   and that nothing

not even death is imposed upon us by some

mysterious all-powerful Force

It is we who knowingly or unknowingly

create these painful, ghastly, unimaginable  dis-eases

that debilitate and devour our our bodies

system by system…

organ by organ…

in a slow death by suicide...

Indeed…by the use or misuse of free will…

all death is by our daily decisions and choices

although my heart breaks at the thought of the degree of unendurable psychic pain

that drove my beloved to so quickly end this earthly sojourn…

this shared here-now…

I grant him his right of

conscious exercise of 

free-will…

And I here-now bless the Essence of the boy-man I so loved

on Its continued journey

Rainy Days…

as I sit here at my window altar

gazing out at the river

watching the raindrops fall

I become aware of my role as

“Placeholder”

for

Divine Healing Energy

that moves

Backward and Forward

in

Time

healing the wounds of all the many

Bloodlines

that intersect within this

“Spacetime”

called

    “Toni Roberts…”

The Only Sin…

Caught In The Void…

Autumn

Waiting

Suspended animation

Between

Death of the

Old

And

Birth of the

New

Treading

Treading

Treading

This spinning wheel of

Decay and Renewal

How long this wait?

Suppressed impatience

Unexpressed desire

Not yet time

Fall back into the Void

Into the quiet stillness of the

Waiting

Soul

Join me. Come out as a Daughter of Gaia!

A Bit Of Thanksgiving Day Insight And Logic…

Artwork/photo by Toni Roberts

Artwork/photo by Toni Roberts

 

We are all made in the image of

The Divine...

We are all reflections of the Creator of all we behold…

That would include the female of the species…

Therefore…

The Creator cannot be male

It,

The Creator,

Must contain both male and female attributes…

So…

Isn’t it about time that we

   Women…

   Females…

Stop worshiping at the altar of

Maleness?

Isn’t it time we wake up to the

Goddess side of the God

Who dwells within all of us?

It is no wonder the world is all

Half-assed and going off half-cocked

Towards total destruction

For we’ve turned the whole game over to males:

MARS!

FIRE!

OUTWARDLY-THRUST AGGRESSION!

FORCE!

Wake up women!

(And you men of wisdom who walk beside us)

Get with the program!

Let’s save this thing before we all go down…

Know that you are

Goddesses…

Holy vessels of the

One Life

Reflections of That in which we

Move

Breathe

And have our

   Being

Join me.

Come out as a Daughter of Gaia!

A Second Day of Freedom!

I give myself permission

to go with my own inner flow

to neither judge myself

nor live by the

judgments of others

I remind myself:

perception

is

reality…

for each of us

experiences the world

as s/he sees it

giving meaning to

incoming data

according to individual

fears

hopes

beliefs

experiences

prejudices

and

whatever mom and dad and church and state

taught as

unassailable 

TRUTH

And so I declare this a

SECOND DAY OF FREEDOM

to be whoever I may be

from moment to moment to moment…

Come out as a Daughter of Gaia!
