A Bit of Wisdom from a Tribal Elder…

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

NEGATIVE THOUGHTS

remembering that

THOUGHTS

are

the

BRICKS

with which my

REALITY

is

BUILT

Letting Go…

Perhaps the time has come for us humans to consciously and deliberately loosen our fear-basedlife or death grip on this third dimension of a greater REALITY

How we do cling to our earth experiences as if this is all there is to LIFE… as if this experience as flesh beings is the BE-ALL of existence…

How about trying something new for a month or so? Just to see what happens…

Take an hour each day in the Silence of the Now Moment…forget about your BODY…your LIFE…and the myriad PROBLEMS bombarding you…

Simply “Let go and let God’…”

And if you do not believe in any Power greater than your human power…or any reality other than your human reality…simply relax into the “nothingness” of your being as you observe your breath

Do this religiously…daily…for at least one month…and see what happens…

You have nothing to lose…n’cest pas? And you gain an hour of relaxation that can only benefit that body in which you so much believe…

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

As I allow…

the

DISINTEGRATION…

DECONSTRUCTION…

CRUMBLING

and

RELEASE…

of

all

OLDOUTMODED…USELESS STRUCTURES of THOUGHT

originally

CONSTRUCTED on a FOUNDATION of FAULTY BELIEFS

about

the

TRUE NATURE OF REALITY

 

I was blind…and now can see

 

May these eyes ever remain open

Season Of Death And Rebirth…

Under the Love & Protection of La Virgen Madre – Window Altar Arrangement & Photograph by Toni Roberts

Todayas I sat at my altar…

Deep in meditation

I heard a Voice echoing from within:

IT’S CLEAN OUT TIME

And…although I shuddered at what I knew was to come…

I answered…bravely:

Do with me as YOU will…

For I am finally ready after these many years…

To begin living the life I came “here-now” to live…

 

Then came the realization

Something within inow deaduselessblocking further growth

The time has come to get rid of it’s rotting carcassto provide space

an inner emptiness…in which new life can take rootgrow strong and ultimately blossom into Springtime

I am ready…I whispered…show me the way and the what to be rid of…

How do I make ready the space in which new life can take seed and blossom?

Show me the waymoment by moment…thought by thought...word by worddeed by deedstep by step

As I walk with trepidation…this dark road

Guided solely by Your Faint Light

Show…

Me…

The…

Way

Aṣe!
