Sunset Friday the Thirteenth – Photo by Toni Roberts

 

usually my lucky day

not so

   this day…

finally stopped trying to squeeze

satisfaction

out of

misery

and simply sat in the

   Stillness…

   and with

mind

disengaged

  I watched the sun set…

with the descent of darkness

I found

   peace…

But this time

   I fear not…

For I have learned:

darkness is always followed by

LIGHT

and each little death heralds a

   REBIRTH

A Day Of Inner Peace…Amidst Outer Turmoil…

Peace

 beyond understanding

is mine

as I drink with great thirst

   at an Inner Fountain

a Source of Holy Nourishment

deep…deep within the center of my being

and thus I experience

that peace beyond understanding

of which the Master Teacher

and all the

Sages

Prophets

and

Holy Ones

spoke

a Peace

whose Truth must be lived

within the heart of each of us

one by one by one…

   even as the world erupts around us…

until the Whole of Us

apprehends that

authentic

peace

which lies beyond

      understanding…

New Insights On Forgiveness…

sunset 3 26 2013 032

We do not

Cannot

Forgive anyone

In the sense of granting absolution

That is “God‘s” job: to forgive one’s sins against us

To forgive

In any meaningful, realistic sense

Is to release

Oneself from the shackles of

Anger

Rage

Hatred

And other

Life-sapping emotions

That rage within the heart and mind

To forgive

Is to clear oneself…

Body…Mind and Soul...

Making of oneself

A passageway for

Love…

Ever open and receptive

As Life

Pours in…as…through

One’s clear and unsullied being

Into the world

As

Form

“Altared” States Four…

light-bearers…

thank you

o’ bearers of Light

“bringers of the dawn…”

thank you for this day

this time of inner peace and self-knowledge

thank you for this moment of expanded understanding of the

who...

what

and why

of my being

grandfather…

thank you, grandfather

for the energy streaming forth from you

upon whose waves I ride back

in Time

to another place

the plains of Kenya

a forest full of ebony trees…

an ancient carver…

his countenance the color of the wood

he so lovingly carves…

so carefully sculpts…

into his own image:

universal God-man

descended from the stars…

originator of the species

planter of the seeds from which we

sprout…

speak o’ ancient one

as I listen…

speak to my heart

and to my mind…

infuse me with

your wisdom..

your knowledge

use me as a

transmitter of your

power…

help me to accept that

coniunctio…

I am loved...

I am love
