Frozen II…

River, Wetlands & Sound – 1/7/18: Day 3 of Big Freeze – Photo by Toni Roberts

my

heart

lifelesscolddesolate

the cessation of all movement

absolute

stillness…

thus

my very being mimics

You…

my

Teacher…

my

Guide…

my

Orisha-Goddess…

Oshun

Queen of the River

She

Who causes the

Waters of Life

to flow…

 

I sit here

still

as

You

are…

awaiting

the

gentle kiss

of

SpringRebirth

empty

cold

alone

 

whatever swims beneath your frozen surface

not for me to see…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Frozen…

like my beloved river

I too am frozen in time…

in retreat

like Bear

I take refuge in my cave of isolation

in this time of hibernation

this trancelike state in which I rest

as new life

develops and grows within

crafted and shaped by

Unseen Hands of an Invisible Creator

 

like Bear

it is not I who doeth the

Work

of

gestationgrowthdevelopment

and the eventual

springtime

birth

of what is new and vital and necessary

for the continued success of this

mysterious venture

of 

fleshbound

spirit

following the 

Creative Directive

of an

Unseen Force

that

simply

is

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Wisdom From Bear Totem…

   MONEY…

is

LOVE

   SOLIDIFIED…

 

humanity’s

shameless, naked

greed

is merely an

outward manifestation

of

humankind’s 

DEEP-SEATED

HUNGER

for

   LOVE…

 

to

   LOVE…

and

be

   LOVED…

 

 

 

 

 

Another Realization As I Rapidly Approach My 79th Birthday!

As the culmination of  79 years in this flesh body rapidly approaches…

I’m beginning to get a glimmer...

Just a mere glimpse

Of what this HELL called human life on planet earth is TRULY all about…

And so I pray that the current

awakening of human consciousness

from its eons of slumber

soon reach

Critical Mass

Lest humanity ultimately destroy itself

from the

ignorance and hubris

so reflected in

America’s 2016 presidential choice

wake up!

time is of the essence!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Self-Healing…

Self-Healing- (Photo One) – Photo by Toni Roberts

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

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Prerequisite For A Life Of Saving Grace:

is the

surrender

of

one’s

soul

to the

    ONE SOURCE OF ALL BEING…

 

as does

an

earthbound

bride

to

her

heavenly

   groom…

Transform Your Life…
