Self-Healing…

the more I heal the hurts and wounded places within this

body-mind-soul

the fewer obstacles and negativity I encounter in the day to day living of this life

it is becoming quite apparent

even to one as

blind

as

I

that the challenges, obstacles  and negativity

we experience in this world are merely

reflections

of the

hurts, pain, resentments

and

anger

still hiding out in the

unexplored

dark

corners

of

one’s

   heart…

and so this Work on Self continues

this lifetime of Inner Work

of healing the Wounded Self

of restoring the Soul

to

It’s Original State

of

Perfect

Divine

   Being… 

   Doing…

what

It

came this earthly way

to

     do-be-do-be-do

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Today I Find MySelf…

towards which

my entire life

has been a

MOVEMENT

A Little Something I Have Learned About Disease…

Contemplation – Photo by Toni Roberts

    or

physical ailments

of any kind…

   by any name:

pharmaceuticals

cannot

heal

the

psychic-emotional

pain

at the root of

all

body-mind-spirit

   in-balances

and

      dis-harmonies

that manifest on the physical level as:

   dis-ease…

the specific disease by whatever name along with whatever symptoms

is simply a

messenger

from the

   soul

   a

call

to look

   within

   as we all well know…

  killing the messenger

      will never solve the problem…

As a Tribal Elder…One who has lived in this flesh body for seventy-eight years…I offer this insight as food for thought…to all of my sisters everywhere who are suffering in pain; and who have accepted the belief that pharmaceuticals can heal the wounds of mind, body and spirit that we have suffered through the ages…and continue to suffer…along with our beloved Gaia…as females of the species.

 

 

Thinking About Love Again Today…

wondering why our love was not enough to keep

beloved grandson

here

in this

   flesh life

came to the  realization

that human love is simply not enough

to keep the

soul

wedded

to

human flesh

for without that

   Essential Ingredient

that everlasting influx of

   LOVE…

of the

DIVINE KIND…

these flesh suits we wear are merely

empty

sacks

of

meaningless

   protoplasm

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

 

.

After The Rain…Light…Understanding…

after the rain...

after the rain…

 

Instead of drumming this Saturday, I spent quiet time at my window altar–with the river.

Rising above the chatter of my “monkey brain,” I sat in the peaceful silence of my rain-washed world–listening within:

This drumming, my dear–just like the words that you write–comes through you. You, the ego-personality, are not the owner of your creative productions. The words, and sounds come through you from a Source that also determines the why, what, when, where and how of it all.

Do not attempt to order your gifts; trying to determine whence they come and go.

Life is not yours to order. It is yours to remain open, receptive and in service to That Which lies behind, beneath, above and at each side of all form. 

You are learning to understand–and more importantly–to accept and live a reality which is the only authentic Reality there is.

It is a process of opening the heart in trust and releasing the pain you did not know was there.

It is truly living from the inside out: letting your 3-D world unfold in, as and through you; bypassing the ego.

It is not the human way  of being. 

It is a process of “un-conditioning” the mind.

Have patience with yourself.

I am with you.

We are with you.

Revelations…

Rose Cross

Rose Cross

the how will always appear as part of the package…

your job is to cast the design in consciousness…

then remain alert

inwardly focused

aware

open

receptive

maintain your  YIN

position…

action will then flow naturally

from the inside out…

The Battles Belong to God…

These earthly battles, indeed, belong to to God: that Holy Presence that has taken up residence in my third and fourth CHAKRAS

that Intelligence with which I communicate in these sacred moments

that mysterious Force that draws me here to this holy spot

above my beloved river

today swollen and

windblown

my river…

Mother God waging Battle

for the survival of Her children:

all the two and four-legged creatures

all those who crawl or grow

along the Body of Her

Sister:

Gaia

Rolling waters

hurried along by the wind…

not wise to tarry in danger

and there is much danger

all around…

it comes by air

by water

by sight and sound…

visions of madness upon the land…

humanity gone berserk

lost in the lunacy of

their own imaginings…

killer cruelty ruling the earth…

a million lives taken…

a noble mountain leveled…

all the same…

I watch from my perch

high above the rapidly rolling

river

listening to words of

Truth

that flow from That Which Has Taken Up Residence in my

heart and solar plexus…

and then I know…

all is just as it must be…

and so, I kick back

and I am at peace once more…

in Love

at-one with my world…

I can leave the battles to God…

More Gratitude and Insights…

the miracle of each new day…

I’m at my window altar in a state of gratitude: I have a roof over my head; central air-conditioning; good food in my belly; clean, oxygenated water to drink; supplements, fresh fruit; organic chicken wings thawing out in the kitchen for the meal I’ll prepare when I get hungry again. Does it get any better? Can it get any better in this one moment of peace and fulfillment of my immediate needs?

Perhaps that is precisely what I need to learn by practice: staying in the NOW–in the one and only moment in which I am acutely aware of having all that I need for fullness of contentment and joy. If I move one second–one millimeter “ahead” into a “future,”I then experience deprivationlack...being in need of

flowers growing in the land of imagination…

So…therefore…if my sense of lack…of not having my needs met…is experienced only when I allow my mind/imagination to wander from the PRESENT NOW MOMENT into a “future time“: a non-three-dimensional space-time that only exists in my mind-imagination, then, the very sense of lack or need that I experience is too an illusion…as illusionary as the non-existent future created by my mental projections.

the intersecting worlds of mind-imagination…

at the border…

And so, today I make a conscious choice to discipline my mind-imagination, keeping it focused in the HERE-NOW; for the HERE-NOW  is the only reality of existence. I now choose to maintain a constant “frame of mind” that is focused on inner listening…on the goings-on of the internal world. It takes an almost superhuman effort to resist the fascination…the addiction to what is happening in the external world. It is with great effort that I will remain vigilant, roping in my forever wandering mind-imagination and returning it Home.

I am beginning to get a sense of how the mind-imagination…human consciousness–individually and collectively– creates a whole “universe” outside of where we truly exist…

There’s more to come…I sense it just at the border…
