I stand strong

undaunted by the harsh winds of Life

roots firmly planted…

deep…deep within the life-giving soil of the Mother

I am woman...elder…daughter of Gaia

of body...soul…or mind

is…

and always has been…

from the inside

the Goddess-side

out

all other externally applied efforts can only result in temporary “cures…”

at best

jealousy

heart

A Bit of Wisdom from a Tribal Elder…

008

In Memoriam – Rest In Peace Beloveds – Altar/Photo by Toni Roberts

I have finally learned that when I do not know what to do…

To do nothing

In the past…whenever I impatiently pushed forward out of restlessnessuncertaintyfeardoubt or confusion

Not really knowing WTF

I wound up ultimately creating just another dead-end of darkness, uncertainty and confusion

All over again…

It took me all of these years in the School of Hard Knocks…to finally get it

I now know to sit and breath into the empty gap between what was…and what will be…in calm equanimity…while accepting the Ego’s discomfort…

Until…eventually…the next experience unfolds…naturallyorganicallyinas…and through me…

Without the schemesplans…and self-profiting manipulations of the Ego

Bottom line: every thing…every person…every circumstance…every event….every situation in our lives…just as it is…has come to pass…and will passon its own…and all we have to do…as we used to say in my day…

Is chill

Night Prayers – Altar Arrangement & Photography by Toni Roberts

the time in which the INVISIBLE ONESweave our highest aspirations and efforts:

the very fabric of our future lives

into the cells of our human bodies

I Fly HIGHER and HIGHER Each Day…

Yemaya Works Her Eye-Opening Magic – Altar/Photograph by Toni Roberts

As I allow…

the

DISINTEGRATION…

DECONSTRUCTION…

CRUMBLING

and

RELEASE…

of

all

OLDOUTMODED…USELESS STRUCTURES of THOUGHT

originally

CONSTRUCTED on a FOUNDATION of FAULTY BELIEFS

about

the

TRUE NATURE OF REALITY

 

I was blind…and now can see

 

May these eyes ever remain open

Ashe

“There Will Be An Answer…”

Under the Love and Protection of La Virgen Madre – Window Altar Arrangement & Photograph by Toni Roberts

 

sitting at my altar…

fretting over the state of the world…

and the needs of my own life…

 

the Beatles song drifts in:

When I find myself in times of trouble, Mother Mary comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be
And in my hour of darkness she is standing right in front of me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be
Let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be”

 

I

let go

of

all

thought

fear

anxiety

and

simply

let it be

Life Is A Process…And “God” Is Who I Am…

Healing Altar – Photo by Toni Roberts

Sitting at my Healing Altar in my Sacred Space is a daily ritual. Were it not for the time spent each day sitting in the Silence surrounded by my Companions-in-Spirit, I would surely be a mad woman. As it is, this daily ritual anchors me to the Divine within; and sets the Tone and Energy of my day. And each day, one step at a time, I move slowly towards total and complete At-One-Ment with That Which Causes All There Is Into Being. I am learning that life is a process and that “God” is who I am.

After The Rain…

After The Rain – Photo by Toni Roberts

there is nothing wasted…

there is beauty in every moment…

in even the darkest of times

there is

light:

the hope of

brighter

days

a hint of joy beyond the

clouds

 

my

heart

sings

with the

coming

of

the

light
