Change Your Consciousness And Change Your Life…

Morning Prayers – Altar/Photography by Toni Roberts

You are the creator of all that you experience

Including the condition of your body

Your life

Your finances

So stop bellyaching…symbolically and literally

And get to work clearing out all of that mentalemotional…and spiritual garbage to which you’ve been clinging all of your life…

Let in some fresh Creative Energy

Remember…

Consciousness is the only Creative Force

On Relinquishing The Illusion Of Human Rulership…

004

My Sacred Space – Photograph by Toni Roberts

Today…I am in FULL CONNECTION…at peacecalmreceptivenon-resisting…resting in the knowledge that “God’s” got this…all of it…this body with its aches and pains…my finances and other insecurities…the kids…grandkids…my People…my country…the insane, dangerous asshole in the White House with his threat of WWIII…the fate of the planet and all its living beings…

All of this…and so much more…I surrender this day…

I turn it over to Whomever…Whatever…I have no idea…I do not know…all that I do know is that it’s too much for me to carry on these puny human shoulders…

And furthermore…I do not have a clue as to the solution to any of it…So…here…”You” take it…WhoeverWhatever Caused me into being human in this timespace called planet earth

On this day…I quit…I relinquish all belief in human rulership…I replace ego-command…with Divine Command…and rest in the Knowledge that this release triggers…

Your Response

And for that I am most grateful

Ase.

Getting Through Life’s Dark Moments Unscathed…

009

Melancholy – Photograph by Toni Roberts

No more reaching…no more preaching…no more stretching beyond Self

Beyond wherever I find myself at any given moment in TIME

Instead…I waitstill…patient…knowing that we exist in an ever-changing Now

Knowing that there is no need to waste precious Energy in futile attempts to change whatever the current Reality…by means of the human will

Thus it is that I walk this daily path guided by neither desire nor fear

Nor by the egoistic hubris of believing that I have knowledge of what should be

Instead…I humbly partake of whatever distasteful dish that Life presents to me…

Knowing that I have helped prepare it in some hidden kitchen…of my subconscious mind

And so…with one prayerful…careful step after the other…I continue on…at peace…in the darkness of this Great Unknown…with only the Light of my Faith as guide…

What Has Your Disease Come To Tell You?

083

Winter Altar – Arrangement & Photograph by Toni Roberts

My experience with breast cancer some thirteen years ago taught me one thing…without a doubt

Disease is a messenger from the Soul!

Today as I sat before my altar in contemplative meditation…wondering about the cause of this sudden painful stiffness in my right thumb…and recent erratic blood pressure readings…the following Understandings drifted across the landscape of my mind:

All dis-ease is a physical manifestation of internalspiritual and/or psychological conditions…

Arthritis mirrors rigidity…an unwillingness to yield…to bend…to surrender to the realities of your physical existence…resistance and stubbornness…instead of non-resistance and surrender…

High or erratic blood pressure is a manifestation of your reacting emotionally to that which you find unpleasant and unacceptable…instead of rationally accepting that which you cannot change within the limitations of your human power…it is a result of emotionalism…of your repeating dysfunctional emotional patterns modeled by your immature parents…

***

We must learn to accept that which we cannot humanly change

***

Seek within for solutions…ask and you shall be answered…directed by Wisdom higher than the rational mind…

***

Nonresistancesurrenderacceptance…are the keys

***

And so, my Soul imparted this bit of Wisdom which I shall surely follow…for my Soul has never led me astray along this lifelong Journey to Wholeness

***

Whatever your stumbling blocks in life may be…I encourage you to seek within for solutions…for understanding…for guidance and wisdom

And then wait in quiet acceptance for the responding Message from your Soul

For your Soul will never lead you astray

Ase

 

Wounded People…

“Third Eye” – Colored Pencil Drawing/Photograph by Toni Roberts

raising wounded people…

giving us generation

after generation

of wounded people…

each wondering why s/he is so misused by

Life

the world

other people

treated as if we were not people

but objects for target practice

disrespect

and

abominable

acts

of

inhumanity

 

my

People

it is long past TIME for a Healing

Healing

of

Self

from the individual to the collectiveHealing from the generational wounds that date to the Kidnapping from the MotherLand to the Middle Passage to an Enslavement in a “new world…” the savage cruelty of which humanity had never before known…

 

it is Time for a Healing from wounds we do not know we have…

but from which we suffer still…

unknowingly

but

no

less

tragically

 

come

my

People

let

us

turn

Inward

where the Ancestors wait to guide us…one by one by one…through a Process of Self-Healing…to Wholeness of Being…to Knowledge of Who and What we are…and our Rightful Place on Planet Earth

 

come

my

People

let us change the projection of our Destiny

FEAR with TRUST...

“God” Has A Plan…

046

On A Clear Summer Day In My Neighborhood – Photograph by Toni Roberts

As one surrenders every millisecond of one’s Life to Divine Management

Truly “letting go and lettingGod…'”

Releasing all Ego-generated FearsImaginingsPrejudgements….Prejudices…and Preferences

One’s True Life Purpose can then begin to unfold from withinout

Organically...naturally...joyfully…as one’s everyday experiences in the material world

One is then WHOLE…and truly FREE

And that is the Purpose of all of this BEING…and DOING

COMES TO PASS…

even those things we neither want…nor like…or think we need in our lives…

 

so…whatever IT is…take a deep breath…and let IT

PASS

 

exactly as IT came to do…
