The Ultimate Leap In Life…

 

Is to let go of all the bullshit

And know that LIFE’S “gotcha!”

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

On Relinquishing The Illusion Of Human Rulership…

004

My Sacred Space – Photograph by Toni Roberts

Today…I am in FULL CONNECTION…at peacecalmreceptivenon-resisting…resting in the knowledge that “God’s” got this…all of it…this body with its aches and pains…my finances and other insecurities…the kids…grandkids…my People…my country…the insane, dangerous asshole in the White House with his threat of WWIII…the fate of the planet and all its living beings…

All of this…and so much more…I surrender this day…

I turn it over to Whomever…Whatever…I have no idea…I do not know…all that I do know is that it’s too much for me to carry on these puny human shoulders…

And furthermore…I do not have a clue as to the solution to any of it…So…here…”You” take it…WhoeverWhatever Caused me into being human in this timespace called planet earth

On this day…I quit…I relinquish all belief in human rulership…I replace ego-command…with Divine Command…and rest in the Knowledge that this release triggers…

Your Response

And for that I am most grateful

Ase.

The Healing Potential Of ADVERSITY…

Image result for images of a upward spiral

According to my observations of the Rhythm of Life over the past forty-odd years of my paying any real attention to the rhythm and flow of my own life

I have observed that Life is an Upwardly Spiraling Ascension… (See visual above.)

If one follows the spiral on its journey upward…one sees that the spiral takes a downward dip (01) (02) (03) just before it continues its upward journey

And so…before each ascension…the spiral descends downward…Thus it is in this human Journey to Wholeness of Being…regularly…like clockwork…we meet Adversity time after time…as we spiral upward

***

Although these inevitable sojourns into hardshipillnessfinancial struggle and the myriad other devastating events of our lives may feel like Death ItSelf…as if there is no hope…that we are cursed and doomed…these dips in the Spiral are as natural and inevitable as up and downlight and darksummer and wintersun and moon

If we do not lose hope as we stumble through the dark periods of our lives…we shall find…time after time…that we emerge from the darkness strongerwiser…and more powerfully able to ride the inevitable adversities of human existence...victoriously…as we continue on this upwardly spiraling journey  to the “Heavenly Realms” of Consciousness and Existence

Between A Rock And A Hard Place – Photographed by Toni Roberts Central Park, NYC

And so…fear not when once again you find yourself “between a rock and a hard place…”

Do not give in to fearful…negative thoughts…hang on for dear life to that one scrap of deeply buried Hope…use all of your Emotional Energy to renew every bit of forgotten Faith…hang on to the Knowledge that you are not a “human having a spiritual experience…”

But Spirit ItSelf…expressing inas…and through your humanity…

***

Rememberthe Spiral periodically dips downward in its Journey of Ascension

As will your human experience in this man-created world

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

It Is Only When One Begins…

Visitors In The Skies – Photograph by Toni Roberts

to catch a vision beyond one’s own creature needspreferencesambitions...desires…and goals

in other words…

when one’s concerns extend beyond mememe

and one’s attention turns within…to seek something highersomething more meaningfulthan…Self

that one is finally ready to take…those first first baby steps toward Self-Knowledge

towards WHOLENESS of BEING

 

for the Ego cannot gain entry to the Higher Realms

into the Sacred Knowledge of the whowhat…and why…of human existence on planet earth

so...

lift up your visionseek higher than this human realm for understanding...

lift up your vision into the Higher Realms of Consciousnessreach higher…and even higher

for the truth that lies beyond the limits of earthly concerns…

reach higher…

and 

still

higher

Ase.

but from which we suffer still…

unknowingly

tragically

People
