this

glorious

today

with

noisy splatters of raindrops

and

boisterous winds

intruding upon the

SILENCE

of  my

   SACRED SPACE

blow!

Oya

clear away the debris that clogs the mind and soul

whip up the waters!

cleanse this vessel!

ready it for the

Holy Work

   for which the Soul has come

For One Human To Attack Another Is…

Surrender – Pencil Drawing/Photo by Toni Roberts

of all that one holds as

      TRUTH…

and

   REALITY

it is the learning to be

   IN…

but not

   OF…

this

MAN-MADE

world…

it is the

TOTAL

SURRENDER

to that which one cannot

touch

taste

smell

or

   see

and can only

hear

as a faint

echo

within one’s

   HEART

these are but a

sprinkling

of the

difficulties

one encounters

upon the

JOURNEY

to

   WHOLENESS

so be ye of strong

SPIRIT

and great

COURAGE

as ye embark upon this

   SACRED

INNER

   PATH

 

The More I Venture…

beyond

the

boundaries

of my

   humanity

the

greater

my

freedom

to

do

   so…

Yes…Yes…Yes…

this

LIFE

is indeed a

DELICATE DANCE

of

   INTERDEPENDENCE…

in which we

HUMANS

are

BOUND

one-to-the-other

and

to the

SOURCE

of our

   BEING…

in ways we’ve

YET

to

COMPREHEND

 

 

 

 

 

Freedom…

saying

YES

to the

LETTING GO ENERGY

and simply drifting along with the

everflowing

   WATERS OF LIFE

that’s

   FREEDOM

When A Lone Bird…

Image result for image lone bird flying by window

flies by my window

I wonder

   where it is going…

does it fly with

destination

&

purpose

in

mind?

or does it fly

simply

because

it

can?

A thought flitted through my mind:

My sole requirement in this life...

All that I need for a life of eternal joy and fulfillment

Is to just be…

As I Gaze Out Upon The Waters…

I hear these words echoing within:

turn towards that which you desire

then simply hold yourself

open

to receive it

Not so easy to do when the culture teaches:

Set goals!

Short-term!

Long-term!

Make a five-year plan!

And then work like the very devil to materialize it!

All else is

Magical thinking

I say screw the culture!

Kick back

Relax

Enjoy the view

As you seek the “Queendom” within

Knowing that The Mother has knowledge of what we need for

Health, peace, joy, abundance and fullness of life

And that all of these needed things

Shall be added unto us
