The Only Reality…

is this

   NOW MOMENT

NOTHING

before or after

this

NOW MOMENT IN TIME

exists

our only job

is to

focus

on the 

NOW

on

WHATEVER

is

right here

before

us…

 

without

JUDGEMENT

or

   FEAR

 

thus

we

PERMIT

the

HIGHEST GOOD FOR ALL CONCERNED

ALL

that we

ARE…

Altars and Meditation…

Night Altar – Altar Arrangement and Photograph by Toni Roberts

 

Some view my altars and ask…

is she pagan?…

does she worship idols?…

My altars simply serve as a focal point during

MEDITATION

The candle flame draws me in…

It becomes a focal point…

My attention becomes single-focused

A requisite for deep

MEDITATION

The statues and other objects lend their unique and special energies

For everythinghuman or otherwise

is

   ENERGY…

ENERGY

is all there is…

One’s visual attention…drawn by the candle flame

remains focused on the altar…

while all of one’s conscious attention is focused on following one’s breath

simply breathe

in…and out…in…and out…in and out…

one follows one’s breath as one’s thoughts

become travellers along the pathway of the mind…

drawing no more attention than passing traffic on a highway…

simply breathe

 

in…and out…in…and out…in…and out…in and out…in…and out…in…and out…

one’s only job is to breathe

as one surrenders the ignorance of the human ego

to the

WISDOM

of the

INDWELLING DIVINE

simply breathe

in…and out…in…and out…in…and out…in…and out…in…and out…in…and out…

“…As Little Children…” – Photograph by Toni Roberts

Am realizing the full impact of spiritual surrender

of becoming once more as a child…

   innocent

   forgiving

leaping off

yet another of

   life’s

   cliffs

 

trusting

that there is

indeed

SOMETHING

to catch me

before

I

smash

into

the

rocks

Today’s Sage Advice From the I Ching…

Summer Blossoms In My Neighborhood (I) – Photo by Toni Roberts

(Lao Tzu, in the sixth century B.C. elaborates upon the meditative mood as follows:)

“(S/he) who knows does not speak.

(S/he) who speaks does not know.

Close the mouth.

Shut the door of desire.

Summer Blossoms In My Neighborhood (II) – Photo by Toni Roberts

Blunt the sharpness.

Untie the tangles.

Soften the light.

Become one with the dusty world.”

The Journey From Bruja To Goddess…

Portrait of the Artist – Collage/Photograph by Toni Roberts

When we first begin to awaken, we BrujasWomen of GodGoddesses and Divine Feminine Beings, we realize that this 3-D “reality” is not static…unbending or unyielding to our human will; and that we not only influence what becomes form but can actually “will” or “create” with our minds what becomes form—much to the ego’s delight.

Years are then spent manipulating our reality plus the realities of those who come to us in droves, paying us cold hard cash to manipulate their realities for them and/or teach them how to smooth out the rough spots in their own lives, i.e., lack of money, no lover, horrible lover, terrible job and on and on and on.

Finally, if we are not too ego-maniacal, we tire of creating and recreating the same nonsense over and over again, never finding that deep, soul-satisfying and lasting human scenario that would make living in this third dimension truly meaningful, purposeful and fulfilling. And that is when the ego begins the process of awakening to itself and to the falseness of its self-appointed ruler-ship of our being. Thus, begins the slow and painful death of the ego’s rule and the emergence of the rule of The Divine Feminine (or, what I, affectionately refer to as: La Diosa Adentro) which has lain hidden all of one’s life, in a secret fold of the heart; waiting for just this season of change…this death and rebirth that comes before the Resurrection of Inner Wisdom, Knowledge and Understanding: the beginning of one’s Sacred Role of Service to one’s “tribe” and to humanity in general.

Thus, in the sunset years of our lives, we become Brujas AncianasWise WomenTribal EldersGoddesses-in-the-flesh and the real Holy Work and purpose of this journey to the here-now begins to unfold inthrough and as all that we are and do…in these temporary and temporal roles of human beings on planet earth. Aşe.
