But..

Whatever the God/dess makes of me…

How Free Are You?

Albino Caterpillar on Branch Looking at Photographer – Photograph by Toni Roberts

Are you FREE enough to simply let your Life be…?

However it will be…?

Whatever it will be…?

With no forethought

Plans

Ambitions

Goals…

and

Schemes…?

 

No?

Then you “ain’t hardly” FREE…

or

WOKE…

It Is Time…

“Creation” – Pencil Drawing – Collage – Photograph by Toni Roberts

As the old structures to which we’d love to cling…are being destroyed

Torn down before our unbelieving eyes…

As old and sure beliefs appear suddenly outmoded

And out of step with the Times

As the sure borders of our world begin to disappear into the distant horizon…

And a once familiar landscape becomes hazy…and uncertain

These are the signals that it is Time

Time for us to let go of all things Past

Time for us to take a Collective Leap of Faith into the Chasm

Time for us to embrace the Unknown Darkness of a Future that is ours to Shape…and Reform

Yes…

Our Future lies in the hands of those of us brave enough to embrace It

Will you take that Leap with me!?

The Best Days Of My Life…

Woman At Crossroads – Staging/Photograph by Toni Roberts

My life has gotten so very much better these past few months…

And in so many…many ways…both large and small…

Despite the COVID-19-TRUMP-MURDER-OF-BLACK-PEOPLE-BY-POLICE-RACISM-INSANITY…

 I now live in Peace and Tranquility

Despite all that is happening outside of Self 

This Miracle-of-Being has been achieved by my simply revoking Rulership of this body-mind-soul…

From the Ego

And the transference of Leadership of this Entity called Toni Roberts

To Whatever It is that caused Toni into Being

A total surrender of my human will…to First Cause…by Whatever Name

 I now let IT tell me what to say and do…and how to be

Breath by breath

Moment by moment

Thought by thought

Word by word

Action by action

Day by day

 

 And I promise you…

Life has never

In all my 81 years

Worked more smoothly

And so completely

On my behalf

 

And for that…

I am most grateful

Monday…Lunes…Moon Day…

Foggy…Misty…Mondays – Photography by Toni Roberts

Word up!”

 

It’s Time to…

Disengage...

Untangle...

Stop Doing

 

and…

instead...

 

Explore

Shape

and

Re-shape

the

very

Nature

of

your

Being

 

The world will get along just fine without you…

for

just

One

Hour

a

Day

 

A Word to the Wise is more than sufficient…Verdad?

A Few Words To The Wise Among Us…

037

Las Damas de los Cielos – Altar Arrangement and Photograph by Toni Roberts

People are not the SOURCE of what we NEED...

Our needs are met through people…by means of them…

People are the  transmitters…the vehicles by which the answers to our needs come to us…from an InvisibleInexhaustibleSUPPLYA non-discriminating SOURCE of ALL GOOD from which everyone may draw all  that s/he needs

Not necessarily wants

But needs

 

What is yourscomes to you…you do not have to chase it…or lust after it…

For it will seek you out…and find you…

Your job is to be stillto ask within…and then listen with patience for instructions

 

(Hope these words to the Wise are more than sufficient in your search to find personal meaning in the madness.)

Chasing The Dream…

019

River Gazing – Photography by Toni Roberts

 

Even when one does not understand how the disparate parts of one’s life fit together…

One must follow that Inner Directive…that quietpersistentunrelenting Inner Voice that urges one onward… 

Despite the fact that it might make no Earthly Sense for one to continue along one’s chosen Path

 It is then…when one is most filled with Doubt…that one must press forward…that one must persevere…without Self-judgment…and despite overwhelming Fear

One presses on…following the Path that the Soul has chosen…and moves forward slowlypatiently…with FaithPurposeEnduranceCourage…and Perseverance

 One continues to press forward as if Confusion is the Dream

And the Dream one chases…is the Reality 

For are we not…indeed…the very vehicles through which…

The Dream becomes…

Reality…?

We must persevere

Despite the PAIN

After all…

This is LIFE

Not a “Rose Garden…”

As I Sit Gazing At My Beloved River…

038

A Storm A-Brewing – Photography by Toni Roberts

It occurs to me as I sit at my Altar…beholding in wonderment…the ever-changing beauty…Of my Beloved River

That the obstacles we humans now face…cannot be pummeled into submission by the sheer…Violent Force of our Human Will…or Anger 

But must be TRANSCENDED

 For beating our collective heads against the insurmountable mountain of troubles now confronting us…Will simply give us a headache

 Then how…I ask…do we escape the horror…the devastation of what is coming towards us from a-not-too-distant future? 

 

My questions are answered in the Silence

PeaceBe still…for Understanding is not contained within the rational mind of wo/man…

But accessed via the Silence of the Heart

 Breathe…Surrender…

Allow that same MysteriousIntelligentCreative Force

That moves your Beloved River

To also guide you…

 

The Way to Salvation shall then unfold

InAs…and Through…all that you ThinkSayFeel…or Do

 Trust

Allow

Release

 Let go of all false human notions of what is Wise…and Good… and Holy

 

Stop doing

Simply Be

For you are a Human Being

And not a Human Doing

 

Being

Therein lies the Secret and the Way Out of all this misery that Man has wrought

 Be…

We must simply learn…

how

to

Be…
