The Silence…

“Night Altar” – Altar Arrangement/Photograph by Toni Roberts

 

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…

  

(A bit of hard-earned Wisdom from the pen of Toni Roberts.)

OBEDIENCE…

Grandfather and Marley – Photograph by Toni Roberts

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

Power…

A Gathering of Spirit Power – Artwork/Photography by Toni Roberts

AUTHENTIC POWER

Is not power over anything or anyone….

IT is an Essential Creative Force moving inthrough…and as humanity…

working ITS will…within us…changing our world for the better

in mysterioushidden ways…

Is the TIME not Now that we humans put aside our bloated…misguided Egos and allow AUTHENTIC POWER to manifest inthrough…and as all that we think…say…do…and areaccording to ORIGINAL DESIGN…?

Slip silently into your cocoonAs does the wise caterpillar 

Allow the mystery of self-transformation to occur within the secret darkness of cocoon-turned-womb 

Emerge reborntransformed 

Butterfly-in-flight…

On Becoming Whole…

The River At Winter – Photography by Toni Roberts

The river at winter…

Makes me weep

 

“Black” boys killing each other…

Makes me weep

 

The genocide of my people…and other people-of-color…

Makes me weep

 

And, how well I know: “Of mine own selfI can do nothing…”

 

And that…

Makes me weep profusely

Double Rainbow Over the River: Hope – Photograph by Toni Roberts

As it also gives me hope

For it is only when I give up the illusion of personal human power

It is in that moment of surrender: bodymind…soul…lifeego...

Surrender of my very Beingness…that I am assured that all is well

And I…and my dusty world are made Whole
