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

I Am Tired Of Following ANGER…

La Madre Con La Pareja – Window Altar Arrangement & Photography by Toni Roberts

It never leads me to any good place…

 And whenever I stop…before acting on It

And take “Time Out…”

 To think

 I invariably discover

HURT

Of some kind…

Hiding…beneath the ANGER

 

I am now learning to WAIT before ACTING

Allowing my ANGER to dissipate in the LIGHT of TRUTH

 step by step

giving over

of

one’s

Being

to

whispered

inner

of

and

love

plus…

the

  UNCONDITIONAL

surrender

of

the

totality

of

one’s

   BEING

Season Of Death And Rebirth…

Under the Love & Protection of La Virgen Madre – Window Altar Arrangement & Photograph by Toni Roberts

Todayas I sat at my altar…

Deep in meditation

I heard a Voice echoing from within:

IT’S CLEAN OUT TIME

And…although I shuddered at what I knew was to come…

I answered…bravely:

Do with me as YOU will…

For I am finally ready after these many years…

To begin living the life I came “here-now” to live…

 

Then came the realization

Something within inow deaduselessblocking further growth

The time has come to get rid of it’s rotting carcassto provide space

an inner emptiness…in which new life can take rootgrow strong and ultimately blossom into Springtime

I am ready…I whispered…show me the way and the what to be rid of…

How do I make ready the space in which new life can take seed and blossom?

Show me the waymoment by moment…thought by thought...word by worddeed by deedstep by step

As I walk with trepidation…this dark road

Guided solely by Your Faint Light

Show…

Me…

The…

Way

Aṣe!

There Is ONE Kind Of ENERGY…

Creation – Artwork & Photograph by Toni Roberts

IT

is

CREATIVE

in nature…

 

IT

is

this

ONE-CREATIVEENERGY

with which we humans

create

either:

peace…love…health…joy…fulfillment in living…justice…

or:

war…hatred…disease…unrest…despair…poverty…insanity

 

THE

CHOICE

IS ALWAYS OURS

I take this day

to

ponder:

exactly what is it

that

I

am

creating?
