In Search of Love

How much of my life have I spent
vying for your love?
I changed my appearance
I changed my actions
I even changed how I felt,
always unsure
if you loved me.

But how could you love me
when you didn’t even know me
because I never knew myself
as I shape-shifted
like a crazy chameleon
in response to you
in response to the world around me.

I finally realized
your love was never the issue
for it was my love of self
I was in search of;
and now that I know who I Am
it matters not
if you love me or not.

For I am deeply enthralled
in a joyful passionate love affair
with my Divine Self
who lives within me
who is always here for me
who has always known
all of Who I Am.

Gift of the Soul

Hushhhhhh my Sweet One, says my Soul,
Allow me to take you deep
beyond time and space
beyond words
beyond the company of other people.

Hushhhhh my Sweet One, says my Soul,
Allow me to escort us
hand in hand
through the coming days
of this sacred eclipse.

Hushhhhh my Sweet One, says my Soul,
Allow us this uninterrupted sojourn
to discover more Love
more Joy
more of who you are becoming . . .

Hushhhh my Sweet One, says my Soul,
This is my blessing and gift to you.

Stripped Down

Stripped down
illusions revealed
self-denial rising to the surface
pealing away all that is not Love.

Dying to the old
all that remains
is the core essence
of Who We Are.

Death can be painful
death can also happen
with pure serenity
and sublime grace.

Why fear it
why resist it?
What lies on the other side
is the ultimate freedom and joy.

A new life awaits
do you have the courage
to strip down
to birth anew.

Beauty of Surrender

Surrender is a beautiful thing
to dive deeply
surrendering to oceans of Love.

And yet, the human mind resists
thinking it will loose control
and it does.

When the mind finally surrenders
what it finds beyond the confines of control
is Peace, Love and Joy.

When the human self finally surrenders
it realizes it has surrendered nothing
and gained everything.

Trust your Inner Being

You are being called to trust
in a way you have never had to before
to go deeply within
no matter what you think you see
no matter what your mind wants you to believe
put all doubt aside and anchor into your heart
where you are fully supported.

There will be times during these transitions
when you need to trust and surrender to your Inner Being
even if you do not know what that is in this moment
you are being asked
to be strong in your convictions
unwavering in your Love
and at Peace with who you know yourself to be.

Remember that your GodSelf will never take you asunder
everything is always evolving for a higher purpose
you are here in divine service
as an instrument of Love and Peace
rest assured all is well
because the Universe only knows the Joy of benevolence
and You are the beneficiary.
