At Yet Another Crossroad…

Woman At Crossroads – Artwork & Photography by Toni Roberts

Once again

I find myself

at that familiar

CROSSROAD

which path to choose?

do I follow the

Uncharted Path

of my

Soul?

now suddenly silent…

or…

do I take that

well-trodden road

and

follow the lure of the

Western “God-of-Money?”

such a familiar…well-worn path…

one I know so well…

one that inevitably circles back on itself…

leading me once again to this place of

emptiness

this place of

nothing that truly matters

 

   methinks I shall choose differently this time…

and take the

True Path

   tho’ I see nothing but darkness ahead…

   I shall take the “Carlos Castaneda Challenge…”

   and trusting in what I cannot see

   jump off the cliff into the void

 

YES

I shall follow the

   Path of Holiness

of

   Wholeness

the

Path

of

the

   Unknown

the

Path

of

the

   Heart

Ashe!

Today…

family day of love 9 27 15 011

I cease my attempts

to construct a new and different

future

based upon the same

old

blueprints

from the

   past

As I Sat In The Silence Today…

      as I sat listening within…

contemplating the new life that is about to enter the family…

so soon after the suicide of my beloved grandson…

   I heard these words:

“it is

BLOOD

and not the

CHURCH

or

STATE

that determines and defines what is

FAMILY

and the

“RIGHTNESS”

or

APPROPRIATENESS

   of relationships between and among humans…”

such is the strangeness that drifts into consciousness

when one’s mind sits idle and open…

such a re-making of one’s worldview

such a re-seeing of reality

and

re-ordering

of one’s

cultural indoctrinations

such strangeness

born of a mind and heart not engaged in the mindless madness of the world

such an exquisite awareness of what is

REAL

and what is

   NOT

I’ve Finally Cracked The Great Mystery…And Gained Mastery Over The Torments And Enigmas Of This Human Existence…

I’ve reached

the

bottom-line

of

bottom-lines…

I’ve found

the

   WAY:

     SIT DOWN…SHUT UP

and

   LISTEN…

      for the only way to

KNOWLEDGE

is via the

      INNER PATHWAY…

the way of the

   HEART…

THE WAY

   OUT

        IS ALWAYS…

       IN…

As I Sit Here In Contemplation Of My Navel…

it’s beginning to dawn on me

through these recent days of

joy-mixed-pain

that there is no such thing as

good

or

bad

     in the events of life…

   it’s simply that…

shit happens so that other shit can happen

LIFE

does nothing

to

   us…

only

for

   us…

and as trite as it may sound:

everything

comes

to

    pass

 

 

 

I Am Experiencing How…

Photo by Toni Roberts Central Park, NYC

      one hundred percent acceptance of all conditions and circumstances of my life…   

   without judgement or immediate action

   of any kind…

   on my part...

   always results in constructive and positive change…

   as if by magic...

Part II…A New Creation Tale…

Part Two

One day, as was expected, the Wise Being and Her Consort were summoned by the Creatress. It appeared that the Wise Being’s Work on earth was done. She was now needed in another part of the multiverse to help establish a new world. The Couple left behind Their four Daughters, Who each settled in one of the four Lands of the earth and took an earth creature as mate and companion. The Daughters of the Wise Being and Her Holy Consort subsequently gave birth to many more Daughters, who, in turn, married earth creatures and produced many, many, many more Daughters down through the Ages to this very day.

The earth is now filled with the descendant daughters of the daughters of the Daughters of the Daughters of the Wise Being and Her Holy Consort. They are everywhere. And although you cannot know them by the color of their skin, the shape of their noses or by the languages they speak—for they are of all nations and cultures. Rest assured…they are here among us.

So, fear not, even as the fear-motivated warriors rant, rave, make war and reign death and destruction upon the earth and its peoples…threatening the very planet with annihilation. Worry not as the military-prison-pharmaceutical-industrial captains defile and pollute our beloved Gaia.

Be at peace and of goodwill in the midst of the madness, for the daughters of the Wise Being are rapidly awakening from centuries-long sleep. They are coming into the wisdom, knowledge and understanding of who they are and why they are here-now.

And before irreparable damage can be done, the awakened daughters of the Wise Being will band together, sister with sister in a global network…and guided by Their Ancient Mother, they will restore upon the earth—and all of its creatures—the PeaceLove Beauty,  Justice and Harmony that prevailed in the beginning…when the Holy Mother reigned

The end…For now…
