We Build Walls to Separate Ourselves…

I Am Mother…Earth…Giver of Life…Artwork & Photography by Toni Roberts

from those who are merely outer reflections of our own inner SELVES…parts of who we are…who for one reason or another…we will not see…feel…or accept…

The outer enemies are merely substitutes for the hated parts of Self upon which we cannot bear to look…aspects of a Self that lay hidden deep and invisible within the Subconscious Mind

That is…until unsuspecting Others come along…upon whom our Inner Enemies can then safely be projected…

Instead of building outer walls…to protect ourselves from those horrid things which dwell within…let us try journeying inward…to ferret out the Unseen Inner Enemies…Let us dismantle the inner walls that block entrance to the Subconscious Mind…the true dwelling place of the evil hordes that threaten us from without…

Thus…we shall discover that we are…One WorldOne PeopleOne Love

Safe in the Ample Bosom of That Which Gives Life

Overcoming The World…

742

Overcoming the World – Photograph by Toni Roberts – Plant Life Growing From Between the Rocks – Central Park, NYC

Life is a series of adversities followed by abundant blessings

which cycle right back into adversity

the sun rises and then darkness descends

such is the rhythm and nature of human existence

we who would hope to emerge unscathed from Life‘s ups and downs must learn to bend

NONRESISTANCEACCEPTANCE...SURRENDER

lest ye be BROKEN by the ill-winds of misfortune…

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

There Is But ONE ENERGY…

River Gazing – Photograph by Toni Roberts

This ENERGY is neither “bad” nor “good…”

It simply is

 

This ONE ENERGY is Creative Energy

The only thing IT does is

CREATE

 

That is ITS only job…

 

This ONE CREATIVE ENERGY is obedient to human consciousness

IT obeys human willbeliefsthoughtsdesiresintents… (Both hidden and open)…

IT is especially responsive to human EmotionsEMotions…which are simply…ENERGY-IN-MOTION…

 

Most humans are unaware of this and misspend this POWERFUL…natural…inherent CREATIVE ENERGYfucking it away in mindless sex…instead of engaging in Conscious Holy Union or…Communion with another of like-spirit…Imagine what a couple could create with the Conscious Use of this ENERGY…an ENERGY so powerfulIT is capable of creating another human being…Instead…most of us unconsciously fuck it away…just like any other animal on the planet…

 

Will you…for a moment…imagine the potential of what we humans could create for the benefit of humankind with the ENERGY that we spend on wars…on the mass slaughter of other human beings…simply because they look different from us…or worship a different “God…?” Or…more often…because they possess something we desire for ourselves…?

 

Felt like sharing few thoughts from the Whispers of the Mother…as I sit here at my window altar…rivergazing

Are you fucking away your natural…divinely granted CREATIVE ENERGY?

I Am Beginning To See…

how things unfold…

IN TIME

everything

is

PROCESS

Life

is

a

PROCESS

an

UNFOLDING

an

EX-PRESSION

or

pressing out

from

the

YINSIDE

   onto the 3rd Dimension…

FIRST CAUSE

can never be found in the material world…

for this is the realm of results only…

Lessons At The Feet Of The Goddess…

Goddess Spirit – Artwork & Photography by Toni Roberts

Lesson Two:

It takes

all kinds

to make this world…

In fact…

we are all but reflections

of

one another

at one stage or another of

human spiritual development

and

evolution

so…

before you curse your sister/brother for

who they are…

or are not…

remember

there

YOU

go

or

went

or

  shall go
