that’s the goal

the “name of the game…”

the one and only aim

plan

strategy

and

purpose

in all of this drama called:

being human on planet earth

 

all else is meaningless and will get you nothing but DEAD…

and back on the crazy wheel-of-life

again and again and again…

until…

you…

are…

WOKE

 

(Some hard-earned Wisdom from this Tribal Elder…still trudging along on her personal  Journey to Wholeness.)

Let Us Lay Our Collective Pain At The Altar Of Love…

007

Altar of Love – Photograph by Toni Roberts

This Path I’ve chosen to walk is indeed, a “straight and narrow “one!

No longer can I stray onto the familiar side streets of anger and sarcasm: my old defenses…my old way of covering up hurt, disappointment, or emotional pain. All of those feelings that strong “Black” women (and women of any hue…truly…) have been conditioned to swallow. From childhood we become experts in covering up…in camouflaging our emotional pain. We swallow it until we are choking with a rage and anger that must be released lest we burst into a million pieces.

***

I have learned to take ‘time out” when I feel that inner volcano getting ready to explode. I then explore what lies below the rage. Ultimately, I discover hurt feelings or suppressed emotional pain. I then give myself permission to be human and vulnerable without the shame of feeling weak.  I allow my heart to hold both pain and righteous anger. For each is both justified and valid. I then lay them both at the Altar of Mother WisdomLady Peace…and Sister Harmony.

***

Ultimately, words of wisdomlovecompassionunderstandingforgiveness and kindness…begin to flow into consciousness; words that wash away any residue of pain or anger that might still lay hidden in the secret recesses of my heart.  Thus, instead of wounding words born of anger, my response becomes a healing balm to the heart of whoever wounded me. For underneath the attacker’s anger and harsh words or actions was her/his own hidden pain. For s/he too has been acculturated just as I; and has learned that it is safer to go into attack mode than to show the weakness of one’s human vulnerability.

***

It’s time to break this vicious cycle. Let us be courageous enough to feel our painindividual and collective. Let us weep together. Let us acknowledge to ourselves and to each other our human fears and vulnerabilities. Let us stop and think before uttering those hurtful words or otherwise inflicting pain upon each other.

Let us lay our collective pain at the Altar of Love.

The Journey From Bruja To Goddess…

Portrait of the Artist – Collage/Photograph by Toni Roberts

When we first begin to awaken, we BrujasWomen of GodGoddesses and Divine Feminine Beings, we realize that this 3-D “reality” is not static…unbending or unyielding to our human will; and that we not only influence what becomes form but can actually “will” or “create” with our minds what becomes form—much to the ego’s delight.

Years are then spent manipulating our reality plus the realities of those who come to us in droves, paying us cold hard cash to manipulate their realities for them and/or teach them how to smooth out the rough spots in their own lives, i.e., lack of money, no lover, horrible lover, terrible job and on and on and on.

Finally, if we are not too ego-maniacal, we tire of creating and recreating the same nonsense over and over again, never finding that deep, soul-satisfying and lasting human scenario that would make living in this third dimension truly meaningful, purposeful and fulfilling. And that is when the ego begins the process of awakening to itself and to the falseness of its self-appointed ruler-ship of our being. Thus, begins the slow and painful death of the ego’s rule and the emergence of the rule of The Divine Feminine (or, what I, affectionately refer to as: La Diosa Adentro) which has lain hidden all of one’s life, in a secret fold of the heart; waiting for just this season of change…this death and rebirth that comes before the Resurrection of Inner Wisdom, Knowledge and Understanding: the beginning of one’s Sacred Role of Service to one’s “tribe” and to humanity in general.

Thus, in the sunset years of our lives, we become Brujas AncianasWise WomenTribal EldersGoddesses-in-the-flesh and the real Holy Work and purpose of this journey to the here-now begins to unfold inthrough and as all that we are and do…in these temporary and temporal roles of human beings on planet earth. Aşe.

Creating Sacred Space In 2018…

Burning Candle & Flowers On Altar – Photograph by Toni Roberts

 

One’s Sacred Space is

One’s shelter

One’s refuge

One’s fortress

 

It is the place to which one returns

Day after day…

At the same time each day…

 

It is the meeting place of

The Unseen Ones

The Inner Companions…

The Invisible Spirits that accompany one

On one’s journey through TimeSpace

 

The Altar is a Portal and the

Focal Point of one’s Sacred Space

One places upon the Altar three-dimensional objects that symbolize

Energetic Intelligences and Transmitters of Energetic Frequencies which

Stimulate and awaken aspects of humanity’s sleeping consciousness which are

Vital for the further evolution of humankind and preservation of planet earth

 

(More to come about the nature of personal Sacred Space and the compelling reasons during these difficult times for creating Sacred Space within one’s own home or office.)

Just a mere glimpse

Of what this HELL called human life on planet earth is TRULY all about…

And so I pray that the current

awakening of human consciousness

from its eons of slumber

soon reach

Critical Mass

Lest humanity ultimately destroy itself

from the

ignorance and hubris

so reflected in

America’s 2016 presidential choice

wake up!

time is of the essence!
