no longer running through life as if the

devil

were chasing me…

as if

my

fate

my

destiny and purpose

in

being…

could be discovered in this

distressed

diseased

confused

and

frightened

world

 

I’m

slowing down

I

breathe

I

am

passageway

of all

man-created

allowing

the

winds

of

heaven

to

blow

through

this

   body-mind-soul…

 

carrying

peace…love…wisdom…healing

and

understanding

in

its

   wake…

there is nothing wasted…

there is beauty in every moment…

in even the darkest of times

there is

light:

the hope of

brighter

days

a hint of joy beyond the

clouds

 

my

heart

sings

with the

coming

of

the

light

Frozen II…

my

heart

lifelesscolddesolate

the cessation of all movement

absolute

stillness…

thus

my very being mimics

You…

my

Teacher…

my

Guide…

my

Orisha-Goddess…

Oshun

Queen of the River

She

Who causes the

Waters of Life

to flow…

 

I sit here

still

as

You

are…

awaiting

the

gentle kiss

of

SpringRebirth

empty

cold

alone

 

whatever swims beneath your frozen surface

not for me to see…

in retreat

like Bear

I take refuge in my cave of isolation

in this time of hibernation

this trancelike state in which I rest

as new life

develops and grows within

crafted and shaped by

Unseen Hands of an Invisible Creator

 

like Bear

it is not I who doeth the

Work

of

gestationgrowthdevelopment

and the eventual

springtime

birth

of what is new and vital and necessary

for the continued success of this

mysterious venture

of 

fleshbound

spirit

following the 

Creative Directive

of an

Unseen Force

that

simply

Night Payers For 2018…

Night Prayers – Photo by Toni Roberts

Let us usher in 2018 in prayerful meditation for peace on earth and the unification of humanity.

Designate a spot in your home and /or office as Sacred Space. Purchase an original framed photography from Toni Robert’s Healing Altar Series and let it be a reminder to to you to take time daily to simply sit and listen within.

All that is worthwhile in life comes from the inside…the Soul-side...out…simply sit and listen

Wisdom From Bear Totem…

   MONEY…

is

LOVE

   SOLIDIFIED…

 

humanity’s

shameless, naked

greed

is merely an

outward manifestation

of

humankind’s 

DEEP-SEATED

HUNGER

for

   LOVE…

 

to

   LOVE…

and

be

   LOVED…
