Eternity of Love

I etch the words
I AM LOVE
into the grains
of glistening sand
where the tide
has gone out
with sea gulls
soaring overhead
and nary a human
has walked.

Throughout the day
I feel the essence
of this Love
absorbed
into the sea
spreading across
the distant shores
and my heart
busts forth
with passion.

There are those
who may think
that Love
is transient
but my heart knows
that Love
is eternal
continually spread
across distant shores
increasing my
own hearts passion.

Moon Within Me

There is a moon within me
that answers to She in the sky
waxing and waning
with the rhythms of her lunar sequence

Deeply She dives into the darkness
in search of the wisdom
that has been so craftily hidden
on the far side of the moon.

With each successive evening sky
ever so slowly she rotates
revealing her feminine wisdom
one juicy morsel at a time.

Until the full radiance of her face
smiles upon me with all her passion
whispering to me from high in the sky
and from deep within me, I answer.

I Am a Sovereign Being

I Am a Sovereign Being.

As a sovereign being
I realize all my needs are met
by the clarity of my consciousness
from the purity of my GodSelf.

I Am no longer hungry
no longer hungry for
love from outside myself
attention from others
nor acknowledgment of success.

I no longer feel the need
to rescue others
to attempt to heal others
to evangelize
or to save the planet.

I recognize that every human
is a Sovereign being.

By honoring
each one’s unique soul path
and empowering their Sovereignty
I grant everyone their freedom
by no longer enabling victimhood.

For my GodSelf sees no victims
nor need for healing or saving
for our Sovereignty calls forth
infinite harmony amidst life’s changes
and all flows with Divine Well-being.

Your Presence of Love

You entered the world on a beam of light
radiant being filled with wonder
You danced in on a song of Love
bringing joy and delight.

You came in with a message of hope
a wealth of wisdom and compassion
You ushered in a time of harmony
with hope of a better world, a world of peace.

Your gift of presence, simple and pure
expands and grows, touching all.
Your hope and wisdom, love and joy,
awaken us to a world of pure delight.

You touched our hearts, they’re bursting open,
with your presence Love now grows.
You fill our hearts to overflowing
with your presence Love now grows.

With your presence, Love grows.

Facts

Facts are facts
until they’re not.

The world was flat
and now it’s round.

Has the world changed?
Have the facts changed?
Or…. have we changed 
by expanding our perspective?

Something to ponder
next time you put your faith in facts
rather than your own Inner Knowing.

Labyrinth of Enlightenment

The Labyrinth of Enlightenment
is a sacred soul journey
weaving its way from the edges of
our carefully crafted human persona
toward the heart of our Inner Being.

Just when you think
you’ve attained nirvana
the chaos of transformation spins you
back out to the edge of the circle
for a more expanded view.

It takes courage and trust to begin
edging our way back to the center again
with our newly acquired wisdom
only to be spun out to the edges
for another expanded view.

This divine design
is the Soul’s loving way
of introducing us
to full and complete embodiment
thus there is no error on our part.

Transformation is not comfortable
for the human aspect of ourselves
but when we surrender
all our fears to our Godself
the path can be one of ease and grace

Once you reach the center
allow yourself to rest awhile
to savor the distilled wisdom
from all of your experiences
before journeying back outward.

Trust that the Labyrinth of Enlightenment
will always lead you
to the center of your Inner Being
with a more expanded consciousness
and the newly attained divine wisdom
to engage in the world
as the Embodiment of the Divine.

Immeasurable Joy

You can’t measure Joy

As soon as you attempt to do so
you dilute it
by measuring it
against someone
or something else.

Joy has many variations
it can be experienced
as a soft warm glow in your heart
a waltz through a field of fragrant wildflowers
or a passionate explosion of life.

But no matter the experience
Joy is Joy
whole and complete unto itself.

You will not find joy
outside of yourself
you will only find it within you
because. . .

Joy is who you are
as a sacred aspect of your Divinity.

Universal Language

Universal language is spoken
by the dancing rays of the sun
the soft rustle of the trees
the exuberant songs of the birds
and the splashing of the waves.

It has color, fragrance,
sound and sensuality
all imbued with Love and Joy.

These are the conversations
from which we can
consciously create
our very own paradise
our heaven on earth.

Expansion of your GodSelf

 

The purpose of this earth experience
has always been to expand your GodSelf
with the joy of life at the root of your experience.

You are meant to create the reality you choose
rather than scuffling around
in other’s realities that were never yours.

Thus, follow your passion
go wherever your heart calls
and create anew for the pure joy of it.
