We Are The Miracle For Which We Pray…

A Gathering Of Spirit Power – Collage/Staging/Photography by Toni Roberts

Those of us who are waiting for some human-created, mythical, man-god to perform a miracle…leading us out of the hell we have established upon this planet…have been grossly misled…for this “God…” whatever “It” is…acts inas…and through us…and not for us…at our request…For we are the “actors…” and “God…” the Actor

In other words…“there ain’t gon’ be no miracle” unless and until we get up off our knees and letGod” use our bodiesminds and souls…for “It’sDivine Purpose…to achieve “God’sAIMS…and not ours…for we are here to do “God’sWork…and not vice versa

If enough of us let go of that mysticalmagical thinking upon which we were suckled…we might reverse the direction in which humanity is now heading with maniacal speed…Perhaps the time has come for us to SIT DOWNSHUT UPTURN OFF ALL OUTSIDE GADGETS  and STIMULI…all that fear-mongering gibberish that keeps us glued to the cell phone and TV…and instead…turn quietly within…to the Silence of our Hearts…Asking: What can I do? How may I help? What…my “God…” would “You” have me do with this life that belongs to “You…?”

For we are flesh…the body… created by this Great Mystery some call “God…” to follow…and not to direct

Maybe…just maybe…if…in the midst of our human hubris…we stop and assume the proper position as regards “God” and man…we may be able to turn events away from the dangerous course upon which we find ourselves…before we have achieved total and complete self-annihilation

One thing…for sure…This Great Mystery…this UnnamableIntelligentOmnipresentOmnipotentOmniscientEnergy underlying  all Beingcannot…and will not be destroyed

And once we humans destroy ourselves…as we seem intent upon doing…

It” will simply create a new…and hopefully…more intelligent creature than we humans proved to be…

The Power Of Focused Attention:

Night Prayers – Altar Arrangement & Photograph by Toni Roberts

 

Is there something in your lifemindbody…that you no longer wish to experience?

Try withdrawing your attention from it each time that you find yourself thinking about it.

Instead of dwelling mentally and imaginatively on what you don’t wantswitch your thoughts and inner attention to something about yourself or your life…that makes you feel good.

Do this a “zillion” times a day if you must.

Be patient.

And one day you will suddenly realize:

  • the worrisome condition, circumstances, or person(s) have disappeared
  • you were so involved in newjoyfullife-giving thoughts that you can’t even remember when the troublesome condition…situation…or person…simply vanished

 

You can change your entire life and conditions of the body by simply changing the focus of your attention from what you do not wish to experience…to that which you do.

I’ve been practicing this for at least forty years now…

and although my life has never been trouble-free

I’m still standing

without a walker…or joint replacements

still youthfulvibrantvigorous

and useful

and squeezing every joyful drop of juice I can…

from this mysterious and mystical experience called human life on planet earth

 

(a bit more hard-earned wisdom from this very joyful Elder for you to take

or leave…)

I Am Beginning To See…

how things unfold…

IN TIME

everything

is

PROCESS

Life

is

a

PROCESS

an

UNFOLDING

an

EX-PRESSION

or

pressing out

from

the

YINSIDE

   onto the 3rd Dimension…

FIRST CAUSE

can never be found in the material world…

for this is the realm of results only…

“Resist Ye Not…”

Another Golden Sunset – Photography by Toni Roberts

 I am learning to

RESIST NOT

the

natural flow

of

LIFE

to

embrace

the

peopleevents

and

circumstances

that do not

please

this

Queen Mother

I am learning

to

lean into

every

difficulty

every

challenge

every seemingly

insurmountable obstacle

by

befriending

it

and

allowing it to tell me

what it has come to teach

and then letting

it

lead

me

in

a

direction

in which my

Ego

would

never

have

thought

of

going

 

I am thus discovering the

rewards

the previously

unimagined new ways of being human

 and the

countless

Divine Gifts

deeply hidden

within

LIFE’S

   CHALLENGES…

and

follow

my

natural impulses

and

organic urges

now that they are led by

“LA DIOSA ADENTRO”

and

not

the

“There Will Be An Answer…”

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

 

sitting at my altar…

fretting over the state of the world…

and the needs of my own life…

 

the Beatles song drifts in:

When I find myself in times of trouble, Mother Mary comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be
And in my hour of darkness she is standing right in front of me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be
Let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be”

 

I

let go

of

all

thought

fear

anxiety

and

simply

let it be
