Open to the Unknown

Are you seeing
what you have always seen
without questioning it?

Are you seeing
what is being projected at you
by the media?

Are you only seeing
what other people
are talking about?

Or . . .

Are your eyes wide open
to see what others
are afraid to see?

Is your heart wide open
to consciously place your attention
on that which pleases you?

Is your mind wide open
to explore the unknown
without restraint?

Are you open
to see, feel and enjoy
the previously unknown?

Amazing Grace

The gift of Grace is freely given
we do not need to pray for it
we do not need to earn it
we do not need to fight for it
we simply need to
remove our blinders
open our hearts and minds
and receive. . .
Amazing Grace.

True Compassion

Compassion
does not require me
to join you in your suffering.

Otherwise
there would be nothing
but suffering in this world.

Compassion is
the ability to see the passion
of love and joy and say
here, this is the way home.

Trust in the Divine

 

There was a time when…
I needed to know
I needed to understand
before I was willing
to take a step forward.

Now… my steps are taken,
from a place of Trust,
trust in the Divine,
which is beyond anything
my mind could conjure.

Thus… when I feel an urging
to take a step forward
I know ‘tis my Divine purpose,
and there is no need
to understand in advance.

For… every step
has already been laid out
with the intricate precision
of the ultimate intelligence
of the Divine.

Ennobling our Humanness

With every experience
of expanded consciousness
there is a releasing
of what our mind
thought was real.

Our mind was never wrong
it has simply been functioning
per the programing
that’s been taught
over eons of time.

The mind is now
in the throes of transitioning
beyond the old constricted beliefs
that have brought us to this point
in our evolution.

What we are experiencing now
is an ennobling
and an exultation
of both the mind
and our physical body.

Indeed we often feel threatened
when the mind has gone fuzzy
free of its old way of thinking
not yet comfortable
with the new.

Compassion is the great healer
compassion for the mind
compassion for the body
and an honoring of our courage
to take such a bold step.

Remember Beloveds
you have done nothing wrong
you are simply experiencing
the ennobling and exultation
of your humanness
with expanded consciousness.

Embracing Your Ego

The ego’s primary desire is to keep you safe,
and it only knows one way to do that
by manipulating people and things.

Once you lovingly embrace your ego
and introduce it to your innate well-being,
it will happily join you hand-in-hand with your Divinity.
And what a joyous homecoming that is!!

For Love is the only protection you will ever need.
Once you view life through the eyes of love,
the ego’s illusion of fear disappears.

Cauldron of my Heart

There are times. . .
my outer world feels like
everything has come to a standstill.
Nothing appears to be happening
despite the racing of my mind
in search of something to do
to give itself credence
in a world that’s gone amuck
in pretenses that make no sense.

Meanwhile. . .
my inner sanctum
is bubbling in answer
to the quickening call of the Divine
with each expansion of Consciousness
and my Creator Self is cooking up
a delicious spicy stew
to be stirred and savored
with the essences of Love and Joy.

When I dip my spoon
into the cauldron of my heart
and raise it to my lips
it brings sublime nourishment
and courage to express anew
that which others fail to notice
in a world of busyness
that has naught
to render a pause.

Thus, my BeLoveds,
tend the bubbling of your heart
and serve up your bowls of Love and Joy
to those who are in need
of the nourishment of the Divine.

When You Pray

When you pray to God. . .
you are actually
praying to your GodSelf

When you pray to God. . .
you are acknowledging
your self as one
with All-That-Is
and all is given
without reserve

but You are the one
who needs to be
open to receive

Therefore,
When you pray to God. . .
it is through your ability to receive
that you become the creator
of your own reality.

Free of Identity

 

You have chosen 
your human roles
playing them out
on this illustrious stage of life.

Sometimes you are. . .
parent
husband or wife
teacher
student
employee
political activist
caretaker
artisan
musician
writer
spiritual seeker
or a multitude of many other roles.

It’s important to remember
they are simply roles being played out
until you tire of them
and choose a different role.

It’s not until you
drop all the roleplaying
and be without
the need for an identity
that energy can be in service to you.

Otherwise energy
is being manipulated
by your identity
and the role
you have chosen to play.

It is the non-person
who is without
the need for an identity
that is free to allow all energy
to be in service to you.

And then, voila!
You are FREE
all energy is in service to you
which in turn allows you
to be FREELY in service to others
without any role playing.
