now is your opportunity to let the LIGHT in…

to learn to SEE

to ILLUMINATE your BLINDSPOTS

 

all that impedes your progress is now made VISIBLE

like memories of past ACHIEVEMENTS

and current DESIRES

 

the LIGHT is now available for you to SEE that YOU are the only BLOCK

the only OBSTACLE…

on your PATH

 

GET OUT OF YOUR OWN WAY

OBEDIENCE…

new photos 078

Grandfather and Marley – Photograph by Toni Roberts

is born of  TRUST

 

without TRUST

there can be no OBEDIENCE

for TRUST is the foundation and source out of which

OBEDIENCE  flows

naturally...organicallywithout human thought or effort

Slip silently into your cocoonAs does the wise caterpillar 

Allow the mystery of self-transformation to occur within the secret darkness of cocoon-turned-womb 

Emerge reborntransformed 

Butterfly-in-flight…

On Becoming Whole…

The River At Winter – Photography by Toni Roberts

The river at winter…

Makes me weep

 

“Black” boys killing each other…

Makes me weep

 

The genocide of my people…and other people-of-color…

Makes me weep

 

And, how well I know: “Of mine own selfI can do nothing…”

 

And that…

Makes me weep profusely

Double Rainbow Over the River: Hope – Photograph by Toni Roberts

As it also gives me hope

For it is only when I give up the illusion of personal human power

It is in that moment of surrender: bodymind…soul…lifeego...

Surrender of my very Beingness…that I am assured that all is well

And I…and my dusty world are made Whole

A life lived solely

of

is

meaningless

A Bit of Wisdom from a Tribal Elder…

008

In Memoriam – Rest In Peace Beloveds – Altar/Photo by Toni Roberts

I have finally learned that when I do not know what to do…

To do nothing

In the past…whenever I impatiently pushed forward out of restlessnessuncertaintyfeardoubt or confusion

Not really knowing WTF

I wound up ultimately creating just another dead-end of darkness, uncertainty and confusion

All over again…

It took me all of these years in the School of Hard Knocks…to finally get it

I now know to sit and breath into the empty gap between what was…and what will be…in calm equanimity…while accepting the Ego’s discomfort…

Until…eventually…the next experience unfolds…naturallyorganicallyinas…and through me…

Without the schemesplans…and self-profiting manipulations of the Ego

Bottom line: every thing…every person…every circumstance…every event….every situation in our lives…just as it is…has come to pass…and will passon its own…and all we have to do…as we used to say in my day…

Is chill

We Build Walls to Separate Ourselves…

I Am Mother…Earth…Giver of Life…Artwork & Photography by Toni Roberts

from those who are merely outer reflections of our own inner SELVES…parts of who we are…who for one reason or another…we will not see…feel…or accept…

The outer enemies are merely substitutes for the hated parts of Self upon which we cannot bear to look…aspects of a Self that lay hidden deep and invisible within the Subconscious Mind

That is…until unsuspecting Others come along…upon whom our Inner Enemies can then safely be projected…

Instead of building outer walls…to protect ourselves from those horrid things which dwell within…let us try journeying inward…to ferret out the Unseen Inner Enemies…Let us dismantle the inner walls that block entrance to the Subconscious Mind…the true dwelling place of the evil hordes that threaten us from without…

Thus…we shall discover that we are…One WorldOne PeopleOne Love

Safe in the Ample Bosom of That Which Gives Life

Overcoming The World…

742

Overcoming the World – Photograph by Toni Roberts – Plant Life Growing From Between the Rocks – Central Park, NYC

Life is a series of adversities followed by abundant blessings

which cycle right back into adversity

the sun rises and then darkness descends

such is the rhythm and nature of human existence

we who would hope to emerge unscathed from Life‘s ups and downs must learn to bend

NONRESISTANCEACCEPTANCE...SURRENDER

lest ye be BROKEN by the ill-winds of misfortune…
