Yesterday…

"Reflections"  (2011) by toniroberts

Reflections…Photography by Toni Roberts

I swam against the current

attempting to change the current to my rhythm and flow

Today

I am flexibleadaptable

I bend and flow with the current

Allowing It’s Wisdom

It’s Knowledge of the Way

To carry me to Joy and Fulfillment

Season Of Death And Rebirth…

Under the Love & Protection of La Virgen Madre – Window Altar Arrangement & Photograph by Toni Roberts

Todayas I sat at my altar…

Deep in meditation

I heard a Voice echoing from within:

IT’S CLEAN OUT TIME

And…although I shuddered at what I knew was to come…

I answered…bravely:

Do with me as YOU will…

For I am finally ready after these many years…

To begin living the life I came “here-now” to live…

 

Then came the realization

Something within inow deaduselessblocking further growth

The time has come to get rid of it’s rotting carcassto provide space

an inner emptiness…in which new life can take rootgrow strong and ultimately blossom into Springtime

I am ready…I whispered…show me the way and the what to be rid of…

How do I make ready the space in which new life can take seed and blossom?

Show me the waymoment by moment…thought by thought...word by worddeed by deedstep by step

As I walk with trepidation…this dark road

Guided solely by Your Faint Light

Show…

Me…

The…

Way

Aṣe!

As I Rapidly Approach Age 80…

fall altar 064

Fall Altar – Healing Altars by Toni Roberts – Altar Arrangement & Photography by Toni Roberts

I watch from the sidelines…

As my contemporaries begin to drop…

One by one…

From the sheer exhaustion of life…

We have reached that stage…

Human culture calls:

Old Age…”

 

As a participating observer in my own life…

I see clearly that these sunset years are merely a Time-In-Life

In which we humans are presented with the choice TO DO or TO DIE

 

The “DOING” requires a complete and total surrender

An At-One-Ment

With the Great Mystery from which all Existence flows

 

The “DYING” is the consequence of not “DOING…”

It is a slow…and usually painful process

In which the Soul withdraws from the human body

Its temporary home

To return to the SOURCE OF ALL THERE IS

EVER WAS… and EVER SHALL BE

 

I…of course…have chosen to DO…and look forward to whatever the “GODS” have in store for me in this re-birth…in this 8th chapter of the life of Toni Robertsfemale…human…resident of a wild and crazy place called planet earth!

Our Prayers…

005

Sky At Dusk – Photograph by Toni Roberts

for

WHOLENESS

HEALING

and

SELF-UNDERSTANDING

never

go

UNANSWERED

(we cannot, however, have one without the others!)

 

   in fact…

as a

bonus

from the

REALMS OF THE DIVINE…”

we also learn…via answered prayer…that we are the only thing standing in our way

blocking

the

BLESSINGS

that

are

our

natural

   INHERITANCE…
