The End Of An Epoch…

You may be sure …

This Epoch of Evil is coming to an END

Despite any appearances to the contrary

However…it is just in these Times of Turmoil and Upheaval that you must…

Hold Fast...and be certain that you stand on the side of what is Right

Good

Just

and

Fair

 

Forewarned is forearmed

Meditation On Human Purpose…

013

Sacred Space – Altar Arrangement/Photograph by Toni Roberts

Ever wonder what your role is on this Soul-Bound-in Flesh Journey of Mystery…?

Your Purpose in being…?

 

One awakens one day asking…who am I…?

For what earthly purpose has my Soul chosen imprisonment in this “flesh suit…?”

Why have I been thrust into this world of combatturmoilconfusion…and chaos…?

Why do I find myself in this Herenow…?

What purpose can I possibly serve in the bedlam…?

In a world gone mad…?

 

It is then…simply by the asking…that the answer appears

And one knowsbeyond any doubt…that we who suddenly become conscious

Finding ourselves Earthbound in  “suits of flesh…”

Are here to awakensurrender…and serve

That Which Fuels All LIFE

 

And so…without a second thought…one offers up all of one’s being

BodyMindSoul…as Fuel…to keep the Fire of Life ItSelf Burning…

For all Eternity

A Few Words To The Wise Among Us…

037

Las Damas de los Cielos – Altar Arrangement and Photograph by Toni Roberts

People are not the SOURCE of what we NEED...

Our needs are met through people…by means of them…

People are the  transmitters…the vehicles by which the answers to our needs come to us…from an InvisibleInexhaustibleSUPPLYA non-discriminating SOURCE of ALL GOOD from which everyone may draw all  that s/he needs

Not necessarily wants

But needs

 

What is yourscomes to you…you do not have to chase it…or lust after it…

For it will seek you out…and find you…

Your job is to be stillto ask within…and then listen with patience for instructions

 

(Hope these words to the Wise are more than sufficient in your search to find personal meaning in the madness.)

Food For Thought…

Morning Light – Altar Arrangement/Photograph by Toni Roberts

A REACTION is emotional...

It is usually fear or anger-based…

It is spontaneous...lower brain...primitive

 

Whereas…

A RESPONSE is intelligent…balanced…unemotional…

And usually well thought-out

 

For the most part…HUMANITY appears to be REACTING to COVID 19

Instead of RESPONDING to it….

 

In which camp do you fall?

I Have Finally Surrendered…

013

Altar To My Ladies – Arrangement/Photograph by Toni Roberts

The futility of trying to teach my language to those just learning to speak 

I will instead wait in patience for the day that my ears ring with familiar words

 Uttered by strangers

 Then…I shall know that I have reached the “Promised Land…”

 Where dwelleth my Soul Kin

 My Family…which art on Earth

 Ase.

Change Your Consciousness And Change Your Life…

Morning Prayers – Altar/Photography by Toni Roberts

You are the creator of all that you experience

Including the condition of your body

Your life

Your finances

So stop bellyaching…symbolically and literally

And get to work clearing out all of that mentalemotional…and spiritual garbage to which you’ve been clinging all of your life…

Let in some fresh Creative Energy

Remember…

Consciousness is the only Creative Force

What Has Your Disease Come To Tell You?

083

Winter Altar – Arrangement & Photograph by Toni Roberts

My experience with breast cancer some thirteen years ago taught me one thing…without a doubt

Disease is a messenger from the Soul!

Today as I sat before my altar in contemplative meditation…wondering about the cause of this sudden painful stiffness in my right thumb…and recent erratic blood pressure readings…the following Understandings drifted across the landscape of my mind:

All dis-ease is a physical manifestation of internalspiritual and/or psychological conditions…

Arthritis mirrors rigidity…an unwillingness to yield…to bend…to surrender to the realities of your physical existence…resistance and stubbornness…instead of non-resistance and surrender…

High or erratic blood pressure is a manifestation of your reacting emotionally to that which you find unpleasant and unacceptable…instead of rationally accepting that which you cannot change within the limitations of your human power…it is a result of emotionalism…of your repeating dysfunctional emotional patterns modeled by your immature parents…

***

We must learn to accept that which we cannot humanly change

***

Seek within for solutions…ask and you shall be answered…directed by Wisdom higher than the rational mind…

***

Nonresistancesurrenderacceptance…are the keys

***

And so, my Soul imparted this bit of Wisdom which I shall surely follow…for my Soul has never led me astray along this lifelong Journey to Wholeness

***

Whatever your stumbling blocks in life may be…I encourage you to seek within for solutions…for understanding…for guidance and wisdom

And then wait in quiet acceptance for the responding Message from your Soul

For your Soul will never lead you astray

Ase

This Season Of Christ…

Isis With Baby Horus – Yemaya and Mary – Altar Arrangement and Photograph by Toni Roberts

Our conquerors taught us that there is nothing sacred in the stars or in the moon…that there is no magic in a singing brook or roaring ocean…no great mysteries in all the changing seasons…not in the glorious, bursting colors of fall…or in the holy silence of a snowy winter day

Our conquerors destroyed our connection with the Mother…taught us to feel shame at our love for HER

Our conquerors replaced IsisOsiris and Horus with a tale about MaryJoseph…and Jesus…their male child…who so resembled our conquerors…

They told us that this Jesus was a “mangod…” to be obeyed and worshipped…

And more than two thousand years later…like obedient children…we still bend our knees in prayer and worship before Jesus the “mangod…” of our conquerors…of those who tortured and murdered our forefathers…raped our foremothers…destroyed our ancient civilizations…stole our gold…silver…and diamond-filled lands…ripping us from our natural and holy way of life…into enslavement

And yet…more than two thousand years later…we continue to repeat the fable…the myth we were taught by our conquerors…

We continue to pray to…and worship his “mangod…”

Who have we become…?

More than two thousand years later…?

We…First Humans of planet earth

Who are we now…? In this new world…?

One created by our conquerors…?

Let us ponder this…this Christmas season…

This season of the “mangod…”

The Christ…

Of our conquerors
