It Is Time…

020

Sacred Moments – Photography by Toni Roberts

We are at a Tipping Point

We’ve reached Critical Mass

Our only hope now lies in CONSCIOUSNESS

In the Invisible Realm

With the GREAT MYSTERY that gives birth to this Human Dimension of Being

 

It is Time to release this mass illusion of CONTROL

Time to LET GO

To UNCLENCH …

To EXHALE

To seek within for the Wisdom and Knowledge necessary for the un-creation of the despairturmoil…and misery that we humans have created…with the power of our fear-driven Egos

 It is Time for us to cease all of this Patriarchal posturing

It is Time for us to admit that we are lost in a sea of confusion…with only ourselves to blame

 It is Time to “Enter our Closets…”

And to “Ask…SeekKnockWithin…”

To then…to be still…and to listen to the Words of the quiet Voice that speaks to us in the Silence…at the center of our Being

It is Time to follow the Directives of the One…Creative…Intelligent…Energy underlying all there iswhich lives within each of our hearts…giving us Life...Breath...Being

It is Time

It is past Time

I Have Finally Surrendered…

013

Altar To My Ladies – Arrangement/Photograph by Toni Roberts

The futility of trying to teach my language to those just learning to speak 

I will instead wait in patience for the day that my ears ring with familiar words

 Uttered by strangers

 Then…I shall know that I have reached the “Promised Land…”

 Where dwelleth my Soul Kin

 My Family…which art on Earth

 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…

“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

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
