Living With Gratitude…

A Gathering of Spirit Power – Artwork & Photography by Toni Roberts

 

I am finally learning to live truly

in

humble gratitude

100%…

24/7…

in

total

OBEDIENCE

to

WHATEVER-IT-IS

that is proving

ITSELF to be far GREATER…

more

POWERFUL and LOVING

than

i

could ever be…

 

I

am

finally

conscious

or

WOKE…”

as this new generation says…

my

life

has

purpose and meaning

beyond

what shall I eat…where shall I lay my weary head…with what shall I clothe this naked body…how shall I earn my daily bread…this day?

I know that I shall be

clothedshelteredprotectedguided...

and

lovingly cared

for

by

a

POWER

I

cannot

seetouchtastehear

or

smell

but which takes care of me far better than my human…flesh parents ever did

or

could

 

and for all of

that

and

more

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.

I’m beginning to get a glimmer...

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!

The Most Difficult Part Of this Journey…

“The Land” Up At The Berkshires – Photo Nine by Toni Roberts

or TREK

as some might say…

is the

LETTING…

the

ALLOWING

the

PERMITTING...

in place of the

DOING

 

the necessity of becoming a

participating observer

in one’s own life…

Coniunctio…A Poem In Celebration Of The Summer Solstice 2017…

Summer Solstice Altar 2017 - Photo by Toni Roberts

Summer Solstice Altar 2017 – Photo by Toni Roberts

 

(DESCENT OF THE LIGHT)

She, speaking softly

From the folds

Of the wet, dark place

Tells of Her thousand pleasures

 

What perverse misconstruction, asks She

Tells You that I am not The Center?

The Seat of Your Being…of life itself?

Why know You not that Mine is the Passageway to Heaven?

Through Mine Divine Portals

The Breath of Life blows

To scatter Seeds

Of Being…

 

What say You? Asks He

This talk of Holy Entrance?

The Seat of Life?

The Passageway to Heaven?

The Way to Heaven is through Me

What know You of pleasure, indeed?

You, who are bound to earth

To moaning, groaning, writhing and wailing

In ecstasies of the flesh

What know You of the pleasure

Of a bursting star?

Of universes that explode into Being

From molten lava

Which rises from my peak?

 

Fool above

I hear You speak

Know You not the Source

Of the sun-kissed fluid

That ignites within You the spark of Life?

A sad and lifeless sack of dry grey matter

Would You be

Were it not

For Me…

 

Great Slut below,

O Wanton One of earth and flesh

Dare You imply

That rank and reeking place

Where You reside

The Source

Of my sweet elixir of Life?

 

To be sure, My Lord,

That’s what I speak.

Come down to see

How from a thousand ecstasies

Flows the golden fluid

So vital to

Both You and Me…

 

What say You, O’ Fierce and Fearless Ruler

Of the Realm above?

Pierce the dark, warm wetness

Of my Being

With Your shaft of Light

Descend to Me so that I may envelope You

In all the sweetness of my ecstasy

So that I may whisper in Your fair ear

Of a thousand unknown things…

 

Let me wrap my huge, dark loins

About Your stiff, unyielding back

And ride upon You

Waves of endless joy

Pleasure greater than the bursting stars

Of infinite universes

Is Yours to have

For acceptance of my Realm

As the Path to Immortality…

 

Lower Yourself, my Fearless One

Into the deep, dark waters of my Being

Penetrate deeply with the flame

Of your raging passion

Explode within

My

Center

 

Though resist He tries

Her liquid words have set Him

All a quiver

He turns this way, then that

But yet is sucked like shavings by a magnet

Through the Portals

Of Her Secret Place

 

Pray not, He moans

To be forever trapped

In fleshly prison

This Light

That once

Was

I…
