science

will be its undoing…

humanity was not created by science…

nor will it be made wholehealed

by science…

but by that which underlies all that is

Raising Kundalini…

Chakra Flowering – Artwork/Photo by Toni Roberts

“Chakra Flowering”–Original artwork by Toni Roberts. This piece is symbolic of the flowering of the Root Chakra and the rising of Kundalini Energy up the spine to the 7th Chakra at the top of the head. There are seven Spiritual Centers (Chakras) or “Wheels of Energy” along the human spine. These centers are aligned with the seven major endocrine/glandular systems in the body. During guided meditation workshop participants rotate the color of each Chakra in a circle as they move slowly up from the Root to the to the seventh Chakra at the top of the head. The benefits of this Chakra Color Meditation are a gradual spiritual awakening–or enlightenment–plus physical wellness–or a Wholeness of Being regardless of the number of years one has spent in the flesh body. And those are only two benefits of the practice of Kundalini meditation–there are many. One of which, as you can see by the accompanying photograph, is the awakening of one’s artistic/creative expression.

this

LIFE

is indeed a

DELICATE DANCE

of

   INTERDEPENDENCE…

in which we

HUMANS

are

BOUND

one-to-the-other

and

to the

SOURCE

of our

   BEING…

in ways we’ve

YET

to

COMPREHEND

The Path Has Darkened Again…

But this time

   I fear not…

For I have learned:

darkness is always followed by

LIGHT

and each little death heralds a

   REBIRTH

At-One-Ment: A Homecoming

atonement 12 30 2013 011

I sit here

at my window altar

gazing outward…

focused inward...

Such a feeling of finality...

as if an old way of being has come to an end

c’est fini…

I am in worship

in communion with

I know not what…

what I do know…however…

is that this ” I know not what

is the Source of the being

who sits here-now writing these words…

This “I know not what”

is what will unfold

in…as…through

whatever I become

in the next

minutes

hours

days

of this experience

I name

self...

life

Whoever–

I conceived…perceived myself to be–just yesterday…

I am no longer…

I know not yet what I shall become…

who or what will unfold from the

Great Mystery of Being

Which pours ItSelf

in…as…through

all that I call

Reality...

all that I know is that I will align

my energetic frequency

to It

matching It Beat for Beat…

I will marry myself to It…

Bind myself irretrievably…eternally…to

It

I am plugged into the Source

fully…completely…

in eternal connection…

in a state of

at-one-ment

Incoming Thoughts On Becoming Whole…

river at twilight

river at twilight

 

right-doing flows from right-being

sunset

sunset

 

let go…be still…surrender

and thus be made ready for Divine Service

at the appointed time

sacred space

sacred space

 

illumination does not come while shopping or bar-b-que-ing

it steals upon one slowly

in the Silence

when one is alone in the dark stillness

of Being

sunset

sunset

 

what is most difficult in this process of becoming whole

is the necessity of surrender

of submitting one’s ego-directed will

to Something that can only be felt…or sensed…

never known in the three-dimensional modes of

touch…sight…hearing...taste or smell

one is, nonetheless, acutely aware of

It…

some  indwelling Thing

that is more true…

more real…

than any thing in the

manifest world

 

Watching The River Flow…

watching the river flow...

watching the river flow

Another day of

sitting here in my favorite spot…

watching the river flow.

Slowly.

Easily.

Peacefully.

Effortlessly pressing forward

despite the disturbance

less than two minutes ago

caused by

three water scooters racing

along its surface.

I wonder…

had the river not been disturbed by those scooters,

wouldn’t it now be calm? At peace?

Its movement imperceptible to my eyes?

Is what I perceive as a disturbance

as a negative occurrence–

in truth–neither good nor bad

as regards the life of the river?

The boys have had their fun

and the river, now adjusting to the “disturbance”

is slowly falling back into equilibrium…

into its natural rhythm.

The “disturbance” has not in the least

veered the river from its steady course or

made it different from what it is.

And so, I take a lesson this day from the river

and allow  every person, event, experience, emotion and

appearance-of-the-moment

to pass through me as easily

as those  boys passed through the river below…

leaving it ultimately untouched, undisturbed

and pressing ever forward

in an unobstructed flow

towards its destiny.
