What Has Your Disease Come To Tell You?

083

Winter Altar – Arrangement & Photograph by Toni Roberts

My experience with breast cancer some thirteen years ago taught me one thing…without a doubt

Disease is a messenger from the Soul!

Today as I sat before my altar in contemplative meditation…wondering about the cause of this sudden painful stiffness in my right thumb…and recent erratic blood pressure readings…the following Understandings drifted across the landscape of my mind:

All dis-ease is a physical manifestation of internalspiritual and/or psychological conditions…

Arthritis mirrors rigidity…an unwillingness to yield…to bend…to surrender to the realities of your physical existence…resistance and stubbornness…instead of non-resistance and surrender…

High or erratic blood pressure is a manifestation of your reacting emotionally to that which you find unpleasant and unacceptable…instead of rationally accepting that which you cannot change within the limitations of your human power…it is a result of emotionalism…of your repeating dysfunctional emotional patterns modeled by your immature parents…

***

We must learn to accept that which we cannot humanly change

***

Seek within for solutions…ask and you shall be answered…directed by Wisdom higher than the rational mind…

***

Nonresistancesurrenderacceptance…are the keys

***

And so, my Soul imparted this bit of Wisdom which I shall surely follow…for my Soul has never led me astray along this lifelong Journey to Wholeness

***

Whatever your stumbling blocks in life may be…I encourage you to seek within for solutions…for understanding…for guidance and wisdom

And then wait in quiet acceptance for the responding Message from your Soul

For your Soul will never lead you astray

My Good News From The Ancestors!

A Gathering of Spirit Power II – Altar Arrangement & Photography by Toni Roberts

you’ve finally reached that point in life…

at which nothing else makes sensebut “letting go and lettingGod…'”

by Whatever Name

you’ve reached the “Pearly Gates” of Consciousness and there is nowhere else for you to go…and nothing more for you to do…but lay down your heavy burdens…and enter therein…to the Other Side of Reasonor “Heaven…” as It is also known…

you are at the end of a long journey

you are “born anew…”

transformed

while still encased in flesh

your Life Work…your Missionyour Raison d’etre…may now begin

and…my dear…if you do it rightthis time

you will never have to come this earth-way again

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…)

The Silence…

There is nothing more filled or fulfilling as SILENCE

Drink long, deeply and often

From your Inner Well of SILENCE 

From thence flows the FORMATION of the world…

Living With Gratitude…

A Gathering of Spirit Power – Artwork & Photography by Toni Roberts

 

I am finally learning to live truly

in

humble gratitude

100%…

24/7…

in

total

OBEDIENCE

to

WHATEVER-IT-IS

that is proving

ITSELF to be far GREATER…

more

POWERFUL and LOVING

than

i

could ever be…

 

I

am

finally

conscious

or

WOKE…”

as this new generation says…

my

life

has

purpose and meaning

beyond

what shall I eat…where shall I lay my weary head…with what shall I clothe this naked body…how shall I earn my daily bread…this day?

I know that I shall be

clothedshelteredprotectedguided...

and

lovingly cared

for

by

a

POWER

I

cannot

seetouchtastehear

or

smell

but which takes care of me far better than my human…flesh parents ever did

or

could

 

and for all of

that

and

more

I AM SO VERY GRATEFUL
