Indoors On A Rainy Day – Photo by Toni Roberts

this

glorious

today

with

noisy splatters of raindrops

and

boisterous winds

intruding upon the

SILENCE

of  my

   SACRED SPACE

blow!

Oya

clear away the debris that clogs the mind and soul

whip up the waters!

cleanse this vessel!

ready it for the

Holy Work

   for which the Soul has come

Rainy Days And Sundays…

beyond

the

boundaries

of my

   humanity

the

greater

my

freedom

to

do

   so…

Today…In The Silence…I Came Face To Face With…

the

mind-crippling

Fear

at the

Root

of all

Human

   Ills

   believe me

  It

was not

PRETTY

Today I Find MySelf…

in that place of

BEING

towards which

my entire life

has been a

MOVEMENT

Before Entering 2017…

I take this moment to look back over

2016…

 

I focus only on the blessings

The miracles both small and grand

Wrought by Some Great Mystery…

 

Like the miracle of this view…

Twenty stories above the Hutchinson River and Long Island Sound

A $12,000-a-month vista if viewed from a Manhattan High-Rise…

Instead of from a bedroom window in the “Boogie-Down Bronx…”

And the miracle of this spaciouspalatial apartment

That has been totally renovated

Over the past two months…

Right down to the hardwood floors

And brand new kitchen

Whose countertops may be fake granite…but HELL

The entire apartment makeover was

FREE OF CHARGE

 

And so…

I bid adieu to the pain of yesterday…

As I leave my Dearly Departed in peace…

And turn my vision forward on this mysterious journey

Called human life on planet earth…

A journey filled as much with painuncertainty…and confusion

As it is with inexplicable joy and unasked for

Gifts of The Spirit!

 

Adios…

2016!

Y muy bienvenido…

2017!

Today, While Sitting, Breathing, Waiting & Listening…

I heard whispered:

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

Since I Now Know…

that the

answer

is contained

within the

   question…

   I simply

ask…

   lean back…

   relax…

and say

YES

to the

      LETTING GO ENERGY…
