Change Your Consciousness And Change Your Life…

Morning Prayers – Altar/Photography by Toni Roberts

You are the creator of all that you experience

Including the condition of your body

Your life

Your finances

So stop bellyaching…symbolically and literally

And get to work clearing out all of that mentalemotional…and spiritual garbage to which you’ve been clinging all of your life…

Let in some fresh Creative Energy

Remember…

Consciousness is the only Creative Force

Getting Through Life’s Dark Moments Unscathed…

009

Melancholy – Photograph by Toni Roberts

No more reaching…no more preaching…no more stretching beyond Self

Beyond wherever I find myself at any given moment in TIME

Instead…I waitstill…patient…knowing that we exist in an ever-changing Now

Knowing that there is no need to waste precious Energy in futile attempts to change whatever the current Reality…by means of the human will

Thus it is that I walk this daily path guided by neither desire nor fear

Nor by the egoistic hubris of believing that I have knowledge of what should be

Instead…I humbly partake of whatever distasteful dish that Life presents to me…

Knowing that I have helped prepare it in some hidden kitchen…of my subconscious mind

And so…with one prayerful…careful step after the other…I continue on…at peace…in the darkness of this Great Unknown…with only the Light of my Faith as guide…

This Season Of Christ…

Isis With Baby Horus – Yemaya and Mary – Altar Arrangement and Photograph by Toni Roberts

Our conquerors taught us that there is nothing sacred in the stars or in the moon…that there is no magic in a singing brook or roaring ocean…no great mysteries in all the changing seasons…not in the glorious, bursting colors of fall…or in the holy silence of a snowy winter day

Our conquerors destroyed our connection with the Mother…taught us to feel shame at our love for HER

Our conquerors replaced IsisOsiris and Horus with a tale about MaryJoseph…and Jesus…their male child…who so resembled our conquerors…

They told us that this Jesus was a “mangod…” to be obeyed and worshipped…

And more than two thousand years later…like obedient children…we still bend our knees in prayer and worship before Jesus the “mangod…” of our conquerors…of those who tortured and murdered our forefathers…raped our foremothers…destroyed our ancient civilizations…stole our gold…silver…and diamond-filled lands…ripping us from our natural and holy way of life…into enslavement

And yet…more than two thousand years later…we continue to repeat the fable…the myth we were taught by our conquerors…

We continue to pray to…and worship his “mangod…”

Who have we become…?

More than two thousand years later…?

We…First Humans of planet earth

Who are we now…? In this new world…?

One created by our conquerors…?

Let us ponder this…this Christmas season…

This season of the “mangod…”

The Christ…

Of our conquerors

FEAR with TRUST...
