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

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

New Year Lesson # 1:

Portrait of the Arist

Portrait of the Artist

Release...

Total and complete release is required…

A cleansing

A sweeping clean of the past

All of it…

The “bad

As well as the “good

All of it…

Cling not to

Visions of former grandness

Total and complete emptiness is required

That you may be

re-filled with Light

newly-formed and re-crafted:

New self...

New life

New way of Be-ing

Made anew…

Incoming Thoughts On Becoming Whole…

right-doing flows from right-being

sunset

let go…be still…surrender

and thus be made ready for Divine Service

at the appointed time

sacred space

sacred space

 

illumination does not come while shopping or bar-b-que-ing

it steals upon one slowly

in the Silence

when one is alone in the dark stillness

of Being

what is most difficult in this process of becoming whole

is the necessity of surrender

of submitting one’s ego-directed will

to Something that can only be felt…or sensed…

never known in the three-dimensional modes of

touch…sight…hearing...taste or smell

one is, nonetheless, acutely aware of

It…

some  indwelling Thing

that is more true…

more real…

than any thing in the

manifest world

 

Ode To The Great Mother On Her Day…

Sheila-na-gig

Let us make of ourselves

Holy Passageways

From Heaven to Earth

Let us get in harmony

With the flow of Feminine Energy

Mother Energy

Loving

Healing

Energy…

Let us be the salve that heals the

Wounds

of

Humanity

Let the Power of the

Great Mother of all there is

Bring peace and abundant blessings

To all of Her children

Let us honor Her

In all of Her Expressions:

The Oceans…

Rivers…

Mountains and Lakes…

The very Earth:

Gaia Herself

Upon whose Holy Body

We live and feed…

Let us be Her Representatives in the flesh…

Let us all…male and female…

All who profess to honor and love

Our flesh mothers…

Let us so honor the

Mother of Humanity…

The Ancient Mother-Goddess

Who birthed the

Universe Itself

And all of the

Gods

Therein

Ode to Oya…

Blow, Wind, Blow

Clear the land

Sweep away the mental debris

Which clogs my mind

Clear away the poisonous thoughts

The lies and other man-made falsehoods

That fill my consciousness

And direct my actions

Free me, Oya!

Transform my being

That I may dance the dance of Prayer with You

Swaying to the Divine Rhythms of Life

Clear the way, Oya!

Make entrance within

So that I may receive

Our fiery Lover, Chango

Who comes in

Riding

Waves

of

Wind

Today’s Musings At My Window Altar: The Hero/Heroine’s Journey…

sunrise 1 23 2013 001

We are all on a Hero/Heroine‘s journey

that is the nature of life.

Each time you meet a major obstacle

or reach “rock bottom”

that is simply Life presenting you with a golden moment of choice.

Whatever you choose to do in that moment…

whatever direction you choose to take…

the direction taken…

the choice made…

will determine the direction of your life

for the next ten-year cycle.

So choose well.

Choose carefully.

Move with thoughtful deliberation.

No hasty, emotional reactions.

Remember…

there are always consequences…

whether they are “positive” or “negative”

depends

solely

upon

the

choices

you

make.

“Altared” At My Altar On A Number Seven Day…Incoming Message…

Today is a number seven day…

a day of surrender to the Source of your being.

This is a very propitious time…

with much going on in the lives of those connected to you…

You must remain anchored in Spirit

Allow your God to be you…

to guide your every thought…every action…

every step you take and

word you speak.

Remember–your only job is to

keep on loving and to use your human will to

maintain conscious connection to

The Great Mystery

Let It do the Work

inas…and through you…

from the inside out…

Behind Every Cloud…

One of the things that makes life so thrilling and exciting

is that I know–that behind

every mystery…

every fear and unanswered question…

behind every dark, ominous cloud

behind every cloud…

no matter how bleak and threatening it may appear…

behind every cloud (two)…

the sun shines brilliantly…

clouds are temporary…

they pass

with or without

releasing their cleansing waters…

behind every cloud (three)…

but the sun–the sun is forever…

permanent…steady…never-failing…constant and consistent..

omnipresent

omniscient...

omnipotent

Life-Giving…

revealing gift after gift

to surprised and unsuspecting eyes…

replacing the hum-drum repetitive sameness

of an ego-driven existence

with the joy of

unexpected

fulfillment

of

of one’s deepest

most secret

dreams and desires...
