Reacting VS Responding…

Today

   For the first time…

      I saw the choice so clearly:

I can continue

Reacting to negative people…events and circumstances

From my place of

   OLD…UNHEALED…EMOTIONAL WOUNDS…

In that so

   HUMAN WAY…

   or…

I can rise above the residue of pain from events long past

And

CHOOSE

 to lift up my

   CONSCIOUSNESS…

ALLOWING

An

   EVER-PRESENT…

   APPROPRIATE…

And

HEALING RESPONSE

To

Unfold

Naturally

   On ITS own…

    In

   As

And

      Through…

 My every

   Thought…

   Word…

   Action

The Ultimate Prayer:

yes, please

THY WILL

THY WAY

and in

THY TIME

not mine

   Thank You

Today, I Found Freedom…

by letting go of

fear

and

preference

It Is The Letting Go…

Surrender – Pencil Drawing/Photo by Toni Roberts

of all that one holds as

      TRUTH…

and

   REALITY

it is the learning to be

   IN…

but not

   OF…

this

MAN-MADE

world…

it is the

TOTAL

SURRENDER

to that which one cannot

touch

taste

smell

or

   see

and can only

hear

as a faint

echo

within one’s

   HEART

these are but a

sprinkling

of the

difficulties

one encounters

upon the

JOURNEY

to

   WHOLENESS

so be ye of strong

SPIRIT

and great

COURAGE

as ye embark upon this

   SACRED

INNER

   PATH

 

The More I Venture…

Beam Me Down – Pencil Sketch/Photo by Toni Roberts

beyond

the

boundaries

of my

   humanity

the

greater

my

freedom

to

do

   so…

Today…In The Silence…I Came Face To Face With…

the

mind-crippling

Fear

at the

Root

of all

Human

   Ills

   believe me

  It

was not

PRETTY

Today…As I Sat In The Silence…

I realized that

I...

We

Either live in

Knowledge

Wisdom…

And

Understanding …

Or

Die

in

   Ignorance

The

Choice

Is

   Ours

And therein lay the

Limits

of our

   Human

Power

And

   Fate

 

I Seek Within…

and find

both the

courage

and the

trust

to take

one

more

step

   forward…

into

the

   unknown

Sweet Surrender II…

and so it is

that this life of mine has become

a journey of unfolding events

day by day

moment by moment

in which I simply let go of all

musts

and

   shoulds…

allowing myself to

   drift along…

riding

the

currents

of

   BEING
