Altar To Oshun & Shango !! – Photo by Toni Roberts

a

laboratory

experiment

 

it

is

   apparent

even to one as

blind

as

   I…

that

nothing

is

here

for

   nothing

everything

is

for

  something

 

every

thought

event

person

telephone call

email

word

idea

   action…

   every-single-thing,,,

   IS-FOR-SOMETHING…

  therefore

I

now

     question

   explore…

and

   use…

     EVERYTHING

 

and

FEAR

   NOTHING

Moody River & Sound – Photo by Toni Roberts

 

   Just took more photos of the river…

   the river and sound have such a hypnotizing pull on me…

season after season

   year after year…

day after day

Distant Tugboat…Cloudy Sky – Photo by Toni Roberts

 

my son says

but ma…

you keeping on taking the same photo

over and over again…”

   he does not see the subtle changes from photo to photo

from day to day

season to season

the shifting shadows

the shimmering light

seasons marked

by the

absence or presence of sailboats on the sound

 

the stillness or gentle flow of the waters

the tugboat far off in the distance…

the mood of the sky

the shifting shapes of dancing clouds

no…

he does not see the subtle differences

from year to year

for he sees only with eyes

while I see with heart and soul

this river and sound that are kin to me…

this river that has held-rocked-soothed-nourished-and-healed-me

through twenty-four years of

pain

sorrow

loss

agony

and the

deepest-of-soul-stirring

joy...

no…

he does not see this

gift-from-the-“GODS”-view

with

   eyes-of-love

  as I do…

for it is

my

life itself

that is

reflected in the waters below…

When Life Flips the Script!

healing altar...

healing altar…

It’s amazing how Life can “flip the script”

in less than twenty-four hours!

After the beauty of yesterday…

which can only be described as a

Gift from the Goddess…

This morning I found myself wailing,

moaning and gnashing my teeth

over the latest heartbreaking news

about someone

very

dear

to

me.

And so,

I went and sat at my window altar

to call upon the

River Goddess,

My Beloved Oshun,

whose Spirit flows within my veins.

healing altar shot 2…

I share Her message with

anyone whose heart has been broken…

is now broken…

or will surely be broken…

before Life is done with you:

There are FORCES beyond your limited human comprehension

or ability to understand what is at work here

concerning X’s birth…

including the very location of his birthplace…

NOTHING is by accident.

All is in Divine Order;

Part of a Greater Order

the Whole of which is impossible to fathom

from a human, third-dimensional vantage point.

What is required of you

and ALL CONCERNED PARTIES

is surrender to the situation;

knowing without DOUBT and FEAR

that IT IS ALL BEING WORKED OUT FOR THE

HIGHEST GOOD OF ALL…

UP AND DOWN THE BLOODLINES…

extending into what humans experience as:

PAST-PRESENT-FUTURE.

Know that Those Who Are In Charge

of creating Form at your level of existence

will be handling all of your problems

this day–

as well as the remaining days of your life–

unto all Eternity.

And no, although WE appreciate your offer,

WE will not be requiring your assistance.

What you may do for US, however, 

is to empty yourself of everything you have previously held as

infallible, scientifically-proven

TRUTH–

and then hold that space

EMPTY

for us to fill with

REALITY.

And do have a joy-filled day!

“Altared” States Two…

message from the grandfathers…

listen

watch

you will know when and how to respond

to what Life presents…

your actions

will flow

smoothly…

naturally…

from the inside out…

without thought from

or judgement by

the

  ego
