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…

Reacting VS Responding…

Today

   For the first time…

      I saw the choice so clearly:

I can continue

Reacting to negative people…events and circumstances

From my place of

   OLD…UNHEALED…EMOTIONAL WOUNDS…

In that so

   HUMAN WAY…

   or…

I can rise above the residue of pain from events long past

And

CHOOSE

 to lift up my

   CONSCIOUSNESS…

ALLOWING

An

   EVER-PRESENT…

   APPROPRIATE…

And

HEALING RESPONSE

To

Unfold

Naturally

   On ITS own…

    In

   As

And

      Through…

 My every

   Thought…

   Word…

   Action

Today…In A Flash Of Realization…I Understood That…

LIFE

is not a

   COMPETITION…

but an

INTRICATE DANCE

of

   INTERDEPENDENCE…

Today, I Am Learning…

to live in

peace

balance

and

harmony

despite the

doubt

confusion

and

   uncertainty

   inherent in the living of human life on planet earth…

for therein lay the only path to:

health

vitality

and

joy

in the full

ex-pression

of

    BEING…

from the

   inside…

   out

A Dawning Of The Light Of Understanding…

The Light Dawns – Photo by Toni Roberts

almost like an explosion of LIGHT going off in my head

the sudden realization:

Life

needs not my

agreement

approval

or even my

understanding

all that is required from me is

acceptance

of

what

   is

the

evolutionary process

requires neither

personal judgements

nor

   opinions…

Friday The Thirteenth…

Sunset Friday the Thirteenth – Photo by Toni Roberts

 

usually my lucky day

not so

   this day…

finally stopped trying to squeeze

satisfaction

out of

misery

and simply sat in the

   Stillness…

   and with

mind

disengaged

  I watched the sun set…

with the descent of darkness

I found

   peace…

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…
