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…

Today At My Altar… – Photo by Toni Roberts

 

under the sacred guidance of the Ancestors

whose spirits yet live within the heart of this woman…

I reconnected with…rededicated my soul to…

the Divine Mystery of Creation

todayat my altar

I re-pledged my life to

the

Great Renovation

now underway…

right hereright now

in this “melting pot” of humanity…

amidst the turmoildarkness…and confusion

the “Gods” are “cooking up

   a new people

   a new

   “race…”

 

bringers

of

a

   new dawn

a

   kinder

more

loving

way

of

being

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…

Prayer to The Holy Mother Which Art in “Heaven…”

I have so many

human needs

my

    Goddess-Mother-Queen…

I cannot begin to know how to meet them with

human power

alone…

my sole possession

is

this

   faith…

this

   belief…

that there is

   indeed…

a

   YOU

that

   hears my cries

and cares about…

   such a

wretched soul

as I…

 

 I beseech

   YOU…

   Holy Mother of All There Is…

Open the Windows of Heaven and

Pour Down Upon

your

wretched daughter

the

   Promised Blessing

for

I

am

finally

ready

to

   serve

THY

   WILL…

and

 not

   mine…

Life Is A Process…And “God” Is Who I Am…

Healing Altar – Photo by Toni Roberts

Sitting at my Healing Altar in my Sacred Space is a daily ritual. Were it not for the time spent each day sitting in the Silence surrounded by my Companions-in-Spirit, I would surely be a mad woman. As it is, this daily ritual anchors me to the Divine within; and sets the Tone and Energy of my day. And each day, one step at a time, I move slowly towards total and complete At-One-Ment with That Which Causes All There Is Into Being. I am learning that life is a process and that “God” is who I am.
