Friday…Viernes…Venus…Ochun…

Daughters of Gaia – Pencil Drawing/Collage/Photography by Toni Roberts

Today…while in meditative contemplation

I was reminded that a new beginning follows every ending

 That which needs to die

Must die

In order for the new and beautiful to be born

 With every death there is a re-birth

 

Therefore…let me not hold onto whatever it is that must die in my heart

In my soul

In my thoughts

And in my body

So that the new and beautiful might arise…

 

I now release all contaminants of:

Heart

Soul…

Body…

Mind…

To make room for the New

Beautiful

Fresh

and

Clean

To so fill my Life and being

That I may be Born Anew

 

And…if I may…let me paraphrase something a very Wise Man was reputed to have told his world:

It behooves one to empty one’s vessel of all oldimpacted matterbefore  pouring fresh water into it…lest one’s fresh water be contaminated with one’s

Same

Ol…’

Shit

For Those In The Process Of Awakening…

Daughters of Gaia – Collage/Photograph by Toni Roberts

Those learning to feel safe in a world gone berserk

Those unclenchingletting go…releasing..

Those learning to trust in that which one cannot seetastetouch…or hear

Those learning to have Faith in that which defies the rational mind

Know that it is all PROCESS…this AWAKENING…this coming to recognize what is REAL…and what is but humanmade

This recognition of this three-dimensional reality…this world of glitzglamourhunger and misery...as nothing more thanPRODUCT…manufactured by the Collective Imagination of Humanity

Be easy on yourself…

Go SLOWLY with this PROCESS of AWAKENING

Take time to breathe...to be still

Be gentle with yourself as you gain the Vision of  a heretofore hidden WORLD…

That gives birthto this physical one…you once believed so real

 

Know that you are not CRAZY

You are finally AWAKENING from a lifetime of slumber

 

Ase and Goddess bless.

listening within

 

(And as my Ol’ Auntie used to say, “A word to the Wise is sufficient.” N’cest pas?)

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

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…
