Non-Resistance…

Sitting At The Window…Cloud-Gazing – Photography by Toni Roberts

Life is a series of adversities followed by abundant blessings…which cycle right back into adversity…the sun rises and then darkness descends…such is the rhythm and nature of human existence. We who would hope to emerge unscathed from Life’s ups and downs must learn to bend…non-resistance…acceptance…lest we be broken by the ill-winds of misfortune

is learning to simply…

BREATHE

BE

LET

LOVE

 

and to let LOVELOVE...

in...as…and through

all that we are

 

when we have mastered that…

we shall have learned…

how to LIVE

The Power Of Focused Attention:

Night Prayers – Altar Arrangement & Photograph by Toni Roberts

 

Is there something in your lifemindbody…that you no longer wish to experience?

Try withdrawing your attention from it each time that you find yourself thinking about it.

Instead of dwelling mentally and imaginatively on what you don’t wantswitch your thoughts and inner attention to something about yourself or your life…that makes you feel good.

Do this a “zillion” times a day if you must.

Be patient.

And one day you will suddenly realize:

  • the worrisome condition, circumstances, or person(s) have disappeared
  • you were so involved in newjoyfullife-giving thoughts that you can’t even remember when the troublesome condition…situation…or person…simply vanished

 

You can change your entire life and conditions of the body by simply changing the focus of your attention from what you do not wish to experience…to that which you do.

I’ve been practicing this for at least forty years now…

and although my life has never been trouble-free

I’m still standing

without a walker…or joint replacements

still youthfulvibrantvigorous

and useful

and squeezing every joyful drop of juice I can…

from this mysterious and mystical experience called human life on planet earth

 

(a bit more hard-earned wisdom from this very joyful Elder for you to take

or leave…)

Abundance…

the land sunday 6 26 16 059

“The Land” Photo Nine by Toni Roberts

 

is the natural state of things…

look at the lavish excesses of Nature…

 

it is time for you to get out of your own way…

for it is you

blocking the natural flow of abundance as and through you…

 

remove those stubborn blocks of feardisbelief…and doubt

open up…receive

 

rejoice in the natural abundance of being

There Is No Lack…

Moments of Stillness – Photograph by Toni Roberts

when one slows down

and lives moment to moment

one discovers that the PRESENT

is the fulfillment of every need one seeks in some mythical

illusionary

future

 

all that IS

is unfolding RIGHT NOW

moment by moment

breath by breath

 

one has but to slow down

to be

to stay in the MOMENT

where there is no LACK...

only the blessings and joy

of the PRESENT

 

try it!

The Silence…

There is nothing more filled or fulfilling as SILENCE

Drink long, deeply and often

From your Inner Well of SILENCE 

From thence flows the FORMATION of the world…

OBEDIENCE…

new photos 078

is born of  TRUST

 

without TRUST

there can be no OBEDIENCE

for TRUST is the foundation and source out of which

OBEDIENCE  flows

naturally...organicallywithout human thought or effort

A Life of Conscious Being…

“Wisdom” – Collage/Photograph by Toni Roberts

that’s the goal

the “name of the game…”

the one and only aim

plan

strategy

and

purpose

in all of this drama called:

being human on planet earth

 

all else is meaningless and will get you nothing but DEAD…

and back on the crazy wheel-of-life

again and again and again…

until…

you…

are…

WOKE

 

(Some hard-earned Wisdom from this Tribal Elder…still trudging along on her personal  Journey to Wholeness.)
