It Is Only When One Begins…

Visitors In The Skies – Photograph by Toni Roberts

to catch a vision beyond one’s own creature needspreferencesambitions...desires…and goals

in other words…

when one’s concerns extend beyond mememe

and one’s attention turns within…to seek something highersomething more meaningfulthan…Self

that one is finally ready to take…those first first baby steps toward Self-Knowledge

towards WHOLENESS of BEING

 

for the Ego cannot gain entry to the Higher Realms

into the Sacred Knowledge of the whowhat…and why…of human existence on planet earth

so...

lift up your visionseek higher than this human realm for understanding...

lift up your vision into the Higher Realms of Consciousnessreach higher…and even higher

for the truth that lies beyond the limits of earthly concerns…

reach higher…

and 

still

higher

Ase.

Overcoming The World…

742

Overcoming the World – Photograph by Toni Roberts – Plant Life Growing From Between the Rocks – Central Park, NYC

Life is a series of adversities followed by abundant blessings

which cycle right back into adversity

the sun rises and then darkness descends

such is the rhythm and nature of human existence

we who would hope to emerge unscathed from Life‘s ups and downs must learn to bend

NONRESISTANCEACCEPTANCE...SURRENDER

lest ye be BROKEN by the ill-winds of misfortune…

Wake Up! Baby Crone!

The Ol’ Crone Who Dwells Within – Original drawing/Photograph by Toni Roberts

Time to awaken, Baby Crone!

Time to rise…

To stretch your wings…

And

Fly

 

That rumbling in the womb that used to bleed just yesteryear…

Is the grumbling of Dis-Satisfaction

 

Time to wake up!

You who live still for the carefree fun of Maidenhood…and Womanhood

Those days…my love…are long gone…

Now is your time of the CroneTribal ElderGoddess-In-Flesh

It is your time for the Dance of Interdependence with She who Rules…in…as and through all that you are

It is only thus that the topsy-turvy world of Yang Supreme can be set once more a-straight…

Time now to surrender your girlish days of immaturity…and follow the deep stirrings of your Heart…and Solar Plexus

This Time when no blood flows marks the Beginning of your Awakening from the glamour of this manmade world of sensual pleasures that can never-ever-fulfill-or-satisfy…

No earthly thing can feed the unnamable hunger that haunts your days and restless nights…each crammed with people…places…things…that leave you dissatisfied…still hungering for the unnamableunreachableSomething…with which to fill your Empty Soul

Answer the Call! Baby Crone!

 The Time is Now…the choice is yours

Either the Path of the Mother Creator…or…the Way of Humanity: “Senior Citizen…” “Old age…” and the breakdown of the body’s organs and systems as the Soul throws off the confinement of Its now useless flesh suit to return to the Source of All Being

Wake up! Baby Crone!

The world needs you…

Right now

As you are

A Bit of I Ching Wisdom for These Trying Days of Our Lives…

(From Hexagram 33: RETREAT)

“…the behavior of the superior (wo/)man toward a climbing inferior; (s/)he retreats into (her/)his own thoughts as the inferior…comes forward. (S/)he does not hate…for hatred is a form of subjective involvement by which we are bound to the hated object. The superior (wo/)man shows strength in that (s/)he brings the inferior to a standstill by (her) his dignified reserve.

(Note: italics are mine)

The I Ching has become a wise and dependable guide on this lifelong Journey to Wholeness. Those interested in learning (remotely) how to use this ancient Chinese oracle in their own spiritual growth and development may contact Toni Roberts, via “message” on her Facebook Page: https//:www.facebook.com/gaiadaughters

 

May our hearts fill with love and our souls remain peacefully connected with the Divine as we follow that deep and ancient Inner Knowledge that knows from whence we came and why. 

I send Peace and Love out to my troubled world. 

Toni Roberts
