Free of the Constructs of Time

The more present we become
in this moment,
the less real
the extraneous becomes
finally seen as the illusion
we dreamed up
for the experience of it

When we free ourselves
of the constructs of time
timelines collapse
memories and stories
effortlessness dissolve
and the wisdom is distilled
by the soul to carry forth

Unless. . .
we are unwilling to let them go
and allow them to pull us back
into the matrix of the illusion of time.

Freedom to BE

It’s not yours
it never was
even if you were taught otherwise
even if you embodied it
even if you have been living it
it’s not yours
it never was

It could only belong
to the false persona
you created to live
as a human
in a world of duality
a world you can walk away from
because it’s was never yours

Step away from
your human persona
step away from
all you thought was yours

Allow your Soul
to distill it into the essence
of Divine Wisdom
free of duality
free of judgment
free of measurement
free of assessment

FREE to live
as the truth of who you are
as the I AM
FREE to dance
to the music of the Divine
FREE to enJOY
the infinite potentials
FREE to create anew
in every moment without bounds
FREE to BE
all that you choose to BE.

Feelings

I have come to learn
I don’t have to feel
what someone else
wants me to feel

That doesn’t serve me
and it doesn’t serve them

Their feelings
are theirs alone
irrelevant
to my feelings

When I honor their feelings
and I am true
to my own feelings
I am free to react
in a way that can serve
all concerned.

Self Fulfilling Passion

Allow the expansion
of your consciousness
to be the passion
that fulfills you

Physical manifestations
are temporary fulfillment
with which your human aspect
is never satisfied

Self fulfilling passion
springs forth within the marriage
of the human and the soul
in their ever expanding
dance of consciousness.

Now That I am Empty

Now that I am empty
of that which is not mine
having released all
ancestral ties
society’s rules
religious dogma
mental programing
the need to judge

Now that I am empty
how do I choose to be filled?

Do I choose to be filled?

Or do I choose
to allow All-That-Is
to continually
flow through me
enjoying each
and every moment
anew?

My Own Reality

My current point of consciousness
where I place my attention
is my only reality
everything else is
null and void
in this moment

There is no need
to resurrect the past
to engage
in past suffering
to face old dragons
rewrite the old stories

By being steadfast
in my present
point of consciousness
everything else
effortlessly
fades away

Indeed we see life
through our own filters
but even they dissolve
when we release
judgment of the past
and fear of the future

Indeed we interact
with group consciousness
but it is our own
point of consciousness
that creates
within the group

Therefore, carefully choose
your point of consciousness
be steadfast
in attending to it
and allow everything else
to effortlessly dissolve

THIS is how we create
our own reality.

Remembrance

After releasing all
of who I thought I was
my persona
my relationships
my job
my home
my lifestyle
my identity
my old existence

I sit here
free of all that was
in the stillness
in the quiet
in that which
I thought was a void

Allowing
the remembrance
of all of
Who I Am
to bubble forth
and create anew

It does not look
like I thought
it would look
for the mind
never knew
Who I AM

It does not feel
like I thought
it would feel
for my emotions
were never the reality
of Who I AM

So what is my reality
what is this new life?

As soon as
I answer those
questions
I am recreating
as I was
as I used to
think myself to be

Instead
I allow reality
to reveal itself
in each
and every moment
in a new life

With a new found
freedom
without the need
to describe
without the need
to identify

For I know
Who I AM
at the core
of my existence
and that is
eternal freedom

Credence

That which is looking for credence in your life
is actually looking for release
for it is only in setting it all free
that we are able to come fully home
to the place of no-thing-ness
where there is no need for credence.

Existence Without Interpretation

Existence without interpretation
allows all the woes of the world
to dissolve into the ethers
without any effort on my part

because these interpretations
conjured by the mind
are a false perception of reality
meant to keep me safe

but the only true safety
lies with my GodSelf
which has no need for
judgment or interpretations

for my GodSelf recognizes
everything as experience
distilled into divine wisdom
free of the mind’s stories
existence without interpretation.

Lighten Up

Making a serious commitment
to your Self above all else
is crucial to your Embodied Enlightenment.

However,
being too serious about the process
will entangle you
in the quagmire of the mind
that creates its own chaos.

Once you put a little giggle
in your walk you’ll be surprised
how fun Enlightenment can be!!!
