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…

Who Is To Say…?

“Creation” – Collage/Drawing/Photography by Toni Roberts

Who is to say what is the Dream and what is the Life…? 

Are the vivid events of my so-called sleeping mind not in Truth the Life…? 

While this planet Earth…this hell of confusion…to which I awaken each morn…

Is this not the Dream…? 

Nay…the Nightmare…?

 Who is to say what is the Dream…?

 And what is the Life…?

 Who is so sure…?

 Who is so certain…?

The Healing Potential Of ADVERSITY…

Image result for images of a upward spiral

According to my observations of the Rhythm of Life over the past forty-odd years of my paying any real attention to the rhythm and flow of my own life

I have observed that Life is an Upwardly Spiraling Ascension… (See visual above.)

If one follows the spiral on its journey upward…one sees that the spiral takes a downward dip (01) (02) (03) just before it continues its upward journey

And so…before each ascension…the spiral descends downward…Thus it is in this human Journey to Wholeness of Being…regularly…like clockwork…we meet Adversity time after time…as we spiral upward

***

Although these inevitable sojourns into hardshipillnessfinancial struggle and the myriad other devastating events of our lives may feel like Death ItSelf…as if there is no hope…that we are cursed and doomed…these dips in the Spiral are as natural and inevitable as up and downlight and darksummer and wintersun and moon

If we do not lose hope as we stumble through the dark periods of our lives…we shall find…time after time…that we emerge from the darkness strongerwiser…and more powerfully able to ride the inevitable adversities of human existence...victoriously…as we continue on this upwardly spiraling journey  to the “Heavenly Realms” of Consciousness and Existence

Between A Rock And A Hard Place – Photographed by Toni Roberts Central Park, NYC

And so…fear not when once again you find yourself “between a rock and a hard place…”

Do not give in to fearful…negative thoughts…hang on for dear life to that one scrap of deeply buried Hope…use all of your Emotional Energy to renew every bit of forgotten Faith…hang on to the Knowledge that you are not a “human having a spiritual experience…”

But Spirit ItSelf…expressing inas…and through your humanity…

***

Rememberthe Spiral periodically dips downward in its Journey of Ascension

As will your human experience in this man-created world

“God” Has A Plan…

On A Clear Summer Day In My Neighborhood – Photograph by Toni Roberts

As one surrenders every millisecond of one’s Life to Divine Management

Truly “letting go and lettingGod…'”

Releasing all Ego-generated FearsImaginingsPrejudgements….Prejudices…and Preferences

One’s True Life Purpose can then begin to unfold from withinout

Organically...naturally...joyfully…as one’s everyday experiences in the material world

One is then WHOLE…and truly FREE

And that is the Purpose of all of this BEING…and DOING

Abundance…

the land sunday 6 26 16 059

“The Land” Photo Nine by Toni Roberts

 

is the natural state of things…

look at the lavish excesses of Nature…

 

it is time for you to get out of your own way…

for it is you

blocking the natural flow of abundance as and through you…

 

remove those stubborn blocks of feardisbelief…and doubt

open up…receive

 

rejoice in the natural abundance of being

Humanity’s Total Reliance On…

Enlightenment – Photo by Toni Roberts

science

will be its undoing…

humanity was not created by science…

nor will it be made wholehealed

by science…

but by that which underlies all that is
