As I Sit Gazing At My Beloved River…

038

A Storm A-Brewing – Photography by Toni Roberts

It occurs to me as I sit at my Altar…beholding in wonderment…the ever-changing beauty…Of my Beloved River

That the obstacles we humans now face…cannot be pummeled into submission by the sheer…Violent Force of our Human Will…or Anger 

But must be TRANSCENDED

 For beating our collective heads against the insurmountable mountain of troubles now confronting us…Will simply give us a headache

 Then how…I ask…do we escape the horror…the devastation of what is coming towards us from a-not-too-distant future? 

 

My questions are answered in the Silence

PeaceBe still…for Understanding is not contained within the rational mind of wo/man…

But accessed via the Silence of the Heart

 Breathe…Surrender…

Allow that same MysteriousIntelligentCreative Force

That moves your Beloved River

To also guide you…

 

The Way to Salvation shall then unfold

InAs…and Through…all that you ThinkSayFeel…or Do

 Trust

Allow

Release

 Let go of all false human notions of what is Wise…and Good… and Holy

 

Stop doing

Simply Be

For you are a Human Being

And not a Human Doing

 

Being

Therein lies the Secret and the Way Out of all this misery that Man has wrought

 Be…

We must simply learn…

how

to

Be…

is to stay connected

100%

to that Great Mystery of Life that moves…

in

all that we think

say

and

are

For we are now…and always have  been…the key to our own salvation

This Fleshly Life…

Window Altar – Arrangement/Photograph by Toni Roberts

Is not about the pursuit of fame and fortune…nor is it about securing the right mate and proper number of children

No…that’s not at all what being present in a flesh body is about…

 

If one lives long enough…and grows Wise with the years instead of…just old

One discovers the true nature of this Life

One learns that Life… at Its Fundamental Basis

Is about learning to use one’s Divinely-Bestowed-Gifts… and Natural Talents

In service to humanity…and not…oneself

One learns through Life’s not-so-easy-lessons…how to live as a Vehicle of whatever IT is that creates and sustains all that we perceive as reality

It is then…that one finds oneself living a FEAR-FREE Life…a life of FreedomOrder…and body-mind-soul Balance

A Life of being in the right place…always at the right time…doing something ecstatically joyful…with the exactly the right people

And all of this achieved without conscious effortplanning…or intention…on the part of the Ego

Life has then become a seamless flow…an effortless living from withinfrom a Place of Mystery and Light…from the Inside…watching in wonderment as the experience of being human shifts and alters

Until Life Itself is a kind of “Heaven” lived right here and now…on Earth

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…

The Beauty Of Being Alive!

new photos cell phone 028

I realized today, as I walked the beautiful grounds of the co-op in which I live, that this Great Mystery we name “God” or “Mother Nature,” has, indeed, gifted us humans with all we really need. And that I am here on earth not to “earn my living” but to serve the living. And for this Holy Work, I am automatically paid from “God’sStorehouse of never-ending abundance.

Take time out today to enjoy the beauty of being alive on this magnificent planet earth.

On Trump’s Victory…

I hereby surrender

to the

Great Mystery of Life

and

relinquish all human requirements

to

   understand…

let us hope that there is

indeed

something greater

than

human power

   at work here…

I’ve Finally Cracked The Great Mystery…And Gained Mastery Over The Torments And Enigmas Of This Human Existence…

I’ve reached

the

bottom-line

of

bottom-lines…

I’ve found

the

   WAY:

     SIT DOWN…SHUT UP

and

   LISTEN…

      for the only way to

KNOWLEDGE

is via the

      INNER PATHWAY…

the way of the

   HEART…

THE WAY

   OUT

        IS ALWAYS…

       IN…
