The Power Of Focused Attention:

Night Prayers – Altar Arrangement & Photograph by Toni Roberts

 

Is there something in your lifemindbody…that you no longer wish to experience?

Try withdrawing your attention from it each time that you find yourself thinking about it.

Instead of dwelling mentally and imaginatively on what you don’t wantswitch your thoughts and inner attention to something about yourself or your life…that makes you feel good.

Do this a “zillion” times a day if you must.

Be patient.

And one day you will suddenly realize:

  • the worrisome condition, circumstances, or person(s) have disappeared
  • you were so involved in newjoyfullife-giving thoughts that you can’t even remember when the troublesome condition…situation…or person…simply vanished

 

You can change your entire life and conditions of the body by simply changing the focus of your attention from what you do not wish to experience…to that which you do.

I’ve been practicing this for at least forty years now…

and although my life has never been trouble-free

I’m still standing

without a walker…or joint replacements

still youthfulvibrantvigorous

and useful

and squeezing every joyful drop of juice I can…

from this mysterious and mystical experience called human life on planet earth

 

(a bit more hard-earned wisdom from this very joyful Elder for you to take

or leave…)

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
