There Is ONE Kind Of ENERGY…

Creation – Artwork & Photograph by Toni Roberts

IT

is

CREATIVE

in nature…

 

IT

is

this

ONE-CREATIVEENERGY

with which we humans

create

either:

peace…love…health…joy…fulfillment in living…justice…

or:

war…hatred…disease…unrest…despair…poverty…insanity

 

THE

CHOICE

IS ALWAYS OURS

I take this day

to

ponder:

exactly what is it

that

I

am

creating?

this

LIFE

is indeed a

DELICATE DANCE

of

   INTERDEPENDENCE…

in which we

HUMANS

are

BOUND

one-to-the-other

and

to the

SOURCE

of our

   BEING…

in ways we’ve

YET

to

COMPREHEND

 

 

 

 

 

I Have No Doubt Whatsoever…

that there is an entire

BATTALION

of

Goddess-Warriors

on the

   “Other Side“…

   supporting me…

   fighting my battles…

   guiding…

   guarding…

protecting

   me…

especially from

   myself

thank

   You...

thank

   You

New Year…New Life…New Way of Being…

I spent so many years of my life

turned outward

looking to the world for a way out of the

misery

of

existence…

searching outside of

Self

for the answers…

      for the solutions to life’s dilemmas…

   another job…

   in the classroom…

   out of the classroom…

   to the corporate world…

 no!

the non-profits!

back and forth up and down round and round

until finally

battered

beaten

bruised

   knocked down…but not out…

by stage 3 breast cancer

   I gave up…

   gave in…

surrendered

to

WHATEVER IT IS

THAT

CAUSED ME INTO

BEING

   in the first place…

  and since then…

IT and i

   have been caught up in a loving embrace…

totally and completely

   AT-ONE…

 

i have relinquished the lead

and now follow that

   Inner Directive…

   right out of the box of the past…

into a new year

a new life

   a new way of being

Happy 2016 to one and all!

Once Again At Another Fork In The Road…

Do I go

Right?

And perhaps find myself once again

Walking the path of

Same ol’…Same ol’

Repeating the mistakes of yesteryear?

   Or…

Do I venture off to the

Left?

What does my heart say?

Which is the path that Spirit would have me tread?

I close my eyes and

Count to three

For this is a place of

Radical Trust

Where I must put aside all

Rational thought

and

   Allow my heart to direct my feet

   Step by very careful step
