Altars and Meditation…

Night Altar – Altar Arrangement and Photograph by Toni Roberts

 

Some view my altars and ask…

is she pagan?…

does she worship idols?…

My altars simply serve as a focal point during

MEDITATION

The candle flame draws me in…

It becomes a focal point…

My attention becomes single-focused

A requisite for deep

MEDITATION

The statues and other objects lend their unique and special energies

For everythinghuman or otherwise

is

   ENERGY…

ENERGY

is all there is…

One’s visual attention…drawn by the candle flame

remains focused on the altar…

while all of one’s conscious attention is focused on following one’s breath

simply breathe

in…and out…in…and out…in and out…

one follows one’s breath as one’s thoughts

become travellers along the pathway of the mind…

drawing no more attention than passing traffic on a highway…

simply breathe

 

in…and out…in…and out…in…and out…in and out…in…and out…in…and out…

one’s only job is to breathe

as one surrenders the ignorance of the human ego

to the

WISDOM

of the

INDWELLING DIVINE

simply breathe

in…and out…in…and out…in…and out…in…and out…in…and out…in…and out…

I’m beginning to get a glimmer...

Just a mere glimpse

Of what this HELL called human life on planet earth is TRULY all about…

And so I pray that the current

awakening of human consciousness

from its eons of slumber

soon reach

Critical Mass

Lest humanity ultimately destroy itself

from the

ignorance and hubris

so reflected in

America’s 2016 presidential choice

wake up!

time is of the essence!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Prerequisite For A Life Of Saving Grace:

is the

surrender

of

one’s

soul

to the

    ONE SOURCE OF ALL BEING…

 

as does

an

earthbound

bride

to

her

heavenly

   groom…

Happiness…

in the things of the world

in the fears, turmoil and confusion of humankind

I will continue

pulling myself back into the

STREAM OF LIFE

that

flows

through

this

heart

healing and nourishing the world

as I follow

this

inward

path

to

wholeness
