Change Your Consciousness And Change Your Life…

Morning Prayers – Altar/Photography by Toni Roberts

You are the creator of all that you experience

Including the condition of your body

Your life

Your finances

So stop bellyaching…symbolically and literally

And get to work clearing out all of that mentalemotional…and spiritual garbage to which you’ve been clinging all of your life…

Let in some fresh Creative Energy

Remember…

Consciousness is the only Creative Force

On Relinquishing The Illusion Of Human Rulership…

004

My Sacred Space – Photograph by Toni Roberts

Today…I am in FULL CONNECTION…at peacecalmreceptivenon-resisting…resting in the knowledge that “God’s” got this…all of it…this body with its aches and pains…my finances and other insecurities…the kids…grandkids…my People…my country…the insane, dangerous asshole in the White House with his threat of WWIII…the fate of the planet and all its living beings…

All of this…and so much more…I surrender this day…

I turn it over to Whomever…Whatever…I have no idea…I do not know…all that I do know is that it’s too much for me to carry on these puny human shoulders…

And furthermore…I do not have a clue as to the solution to any of it…So…here…”You” take it…WhoeverWhatever Caused me into being human in this timespace called planet earth

On this day…I quit…I relinquish all belief in human rulership…I replace ego-command…with Divine Command…and rest in the Knowledge that this release triggers…

Your Response

And for that I am most grateful

Ase.

Getting Through Life’s Dark Moments Unscathed…

009

Melancholy – Photograph by Toni Roberts

No more reaching…no more preaching…no more stretching beyond Self

Beyond wherever I find myself at any given moment in TIME

Instead…I waitstill…patient…knowing that we exist in an ever-changing Now

Knowing that there is no need to waste precious Energy in futile attempts to change whatever the current Reality…by means of the human will

Thus it is that I walk this daily path guided by neither desire nor fear

Nor by the egoistic hubris of believing that I have knowledge of what should be

Instead…I humbly partake of whatever distasteful dish that Life presents to me…

Knowing that I have helped prepare it in some hidden kitchen…of my subconscious mind

And so…with one prayerful…careful step after the other…I continue on…at peace…in the darkness of this Great Unknown…with only the Light of my Faith as guide…

What Has Your Disease Come To Tell You?

083

Winter Altar – Arrangement & Photograph by Toni Roberts

My experience with breast cancer some thirteen years ago taught me one thing…without a doubt

Disease is a messenger from the Soul!

Today as I sat before my altar in contemplative meditation…wondering about the cause of this sudden painful stiffness in my right thumb…and recent erratic blood pressure readings…the following Understandings drifted across the landscape of my mind:

All dis-ease is a physical manifestation of internalspiritual and/or psychological conditions…

Arthritis mirrors rigidity…an unwillingness to yield…to bend…to surrender to the realities of your physical existence…resistance and stubbornness…instead of non-resistance and surrender…

High or erratic blood pressure is a manifestation of your reacting emotionally to that which you find unpleasant and unacceptable…instead of rationally accepting that which you cannot change within the limitations of your human power…it is a result of emotionalism…of your repeating dysfunctional emotional patterns modeled by your immature parents…

***

We must learn to accept that which we cannot humanly change

***

Seek within for solutions…ask and you shall be answered…directed by Wisdom higher than the rational mind…

***

Nonresistancesurrenderacceptance…are the keys

***

And so, my Soul imparted this bit of Wisdom which I shall surely follow…for my Soul has never led me astray along this lifelong Journey to Wholeness

***

Whatever your stumbling blocks in life may be…I encourage you to seek within for solutions…for understanding…for guidance and wisdom

And then wait in quiet acceptance for the responding Message from your Soul

For your Soul will never lead you astray

Ase

 

This Season Of Christ…

Isis With Baby Horus – Yemaya and Mary – Altar Arrangement and Photograph by Toni Roberts

Our conquerors taught us that there is nothing sacred in the stars or in the moon…that there is no magic in a singing brook or roaring ocean…no great mysteries in all the changing seasons…not in the glorious, bursting colors of fall…or in the holy silence of a snowy winter day

Our conquerors destroyed our connection with the Mother…taught us to feel shame at our love for HER

Our conquerors replaced IsisOsiris and Horus with a tale about MaryJoseph…and Jesus…their male child…who so resembled our conquerors…

They told us that this Jesus was a “mangod…” to be obeyed and worshipped…

And more than two thousand years later…like obedient children…we still bend our knees in prayer and worship before Jesus the “mangod…” of our conquerors…of those who tortured and murdered our forefathers…raped our foremothers…destroyed our ancient civilizations…stole our gold…silver…and diamond-filled lands…ripping us from our natural and holy way of life…into enslavement

And yet…more than two thousand years later…we continue to repeat the fable…the myth we were taught by our conquerors…

We continue to pray to…and worship his “mangod…”

Who have we become…?

More than two thousand years later…?

We…First Humans of planet earth

Who are we now…? In this new world…?

One created by our conquerors…?

Let us ponder this…this Christmas season…

This season of the “mangod…”

The Christ…

Of our conquerors

FEAR with TRUST...

Trust in that which we cannot see…taste…touch…hear…or smell…

but Whose Presence is felt with every heartbeat...every breath

My Good News From The Ancestors!

A Gathering of Spirit Power II – Altar Arrangement & Photography by Toni Roberts

you’ve finally reached that point in life…

at which nothing else makes sensebut “letting go and lettingGod…'”

by Whatever Name

you’ve reached the “Pearly Gates” of Consciousness and there is nowhere else for you to go…and nothing more for you to do…but lay down your heavy burdens…and enter therein…to the Other Side of Reasonor “Heaven…” as It is also known…

you are at the end of a long journey

you are “born anew…”

transformed

while still encased in flesh

your Life Work…your Missionyour Raison d’etre…may now begin

and…my dear…if you do it rightthis time

you will never have to come this earth-way again

“God” Has A Plan…

On A Clear Summer Day In My Neighborhood – Photograph by Toni Roberts

As one surrenders every millisecond of one’s Life to Divine Management

Truly “letting go and lettingGod…'”

Releasing all Ego-generated FearsImaginingsPrejudgements….Prejudices…and Preferences

One’s True Life Purpose can then begin to unfold from withinout

Organically...naturally...joyfully…as one’s everyday experiences in the material world

One is then WHOLE…and truly FREE

And that is the Purpose of all of this BEING…and DOING
