is the

surrender

of

one’s

soul

to the

    ONE SOURCE OF ALL BEING…

 

as does

an

earthbound

bride

to

her

heavenly

   groom…

that there is nothing to do

but

healing and nourishing the world

inward

path

wholeness

My Life Is Becoming…

a

laboratory

experiment

 

it

is

   apparent

even to one as

blind

as

   I…

that

nothing

is

here

for

   nothing

everything

is

for

  something

 

every

thought

event

person

telephone call

email

word

idea

   action…

   every-single-thing,,,

   IS-FOR-SOMETHING…

  therefore

I

now

     question

   explore…

and

   use…

     EVERYTHING

 

and

FEAR

   NOTHING

plant

YOUR IDEAS

   within my mind…

use me as

   YOUR MOUTHPIECE

and speak

YOUR HEALING WORDS

through my lips…

 

let every action of this body be

INITIATED

by

   YOU…

its

   CREATOR…

 

Ashe!
