Rhythm of Life

Ebb and Flow . .
Ebb and Flow . . .
the simple rhythm of life

Isn’t it time
we learn to flow
with the ease and grace of it
rather than attempting to control the tides.

Calling forth our Genius

It is within the quietude
that life is aligning
in all its perfection
to become divinely manifest

Free of the machinations
of the human mind
free of the manipulations
of society’s programing
free of the control
of the deteriorating matrix

Attempting to
hang on to what was
only creates more chaos

Whereas,
spending time in quietude
calls forth our genius.

Gift of Compassion

Compassion has become
one of my most intimate teachers

Compassion, like forgiveness
is not about the other person
it is a gift to my self
the gift of maintaining
an open heart
by withdrawing
my own judgment
with the realization
that I do not appreciate
other’s interference
with my own life choices
therefore I have no right
to judge others

With compassion
I live with an open heart
no longer triggered
by anger from another
no longer provoked with
the need to defend my self
no longer attempting
to improve another person
no longer prompted
to change humanity

With compassion
I become a sovereign being
able to honor each person
on their own sacred journey
in their own sovereignty

Herein lies my true Freedom
because a closed heart
lacking compassion
limits my ability
to live a full
and fruitful life

Compassion has become
Who I Am and how I live my life
thus, my life has become
so much more enjoyable.

Take a deep breathe and
give your self
the Gift of Compassion.

Consumed by Love

I am consumed by Love
Love of self
Love of life
Love of nature
Love of all that is

I surrender
all I thought
my self to be
all I thought
my self to know

Allowing my self
to be consumed
by Love
with Love
as Love

I AM Love.

Always Here

It is here
my joy and
my passion

It is always here

Even when
it feels like
the world
around me
has gone
asunder

Even when
it is buried
beneath
old memories
that threaten
to diminish it

Even when
others
attempt to
pull me
into their
personal dramas

It is always here

With one deep breath
one gentle exhalation
I sync into
the depth of me
where my
Joy and Passion
continue to
effortlessly
bubble forth
with the simple
recognition
of Who I AM.

Effortless Release

When the energies
of the world around me
are doing loony cartwheels
and jackknifing off
in crazy directions

I slowly inhale
a long deep breath
fully expanding my chest
then allow the exhale
to effortlessly release
all accumulated angst

With my next deep breath
my consciousness settles
into the loving bosom
of my Inner BEing
and Peace prevails.

Serenity

Savor the serenity
of quietude
peace
emptiness
and contentment
after shedding
eons of busyness
and mind chatter

Allow this to be
your new foundation
from which to
create Anew.

Dissolving the Old

As old memories
drift through my consciousness
I allow them to dissolve
allowing old emotions to dissolve
allowing old beliefs to dissolve
allowing my old self to dissolve

until nothing remains
but the Wisdom
my soul has distilled
from all these experiences
adding to the core existence
of Who I AM.

Migration

When I quietly
allow the energy
attempting to move
through old
unviable pathways
without engaging
it will eventually
migrate to new
ever more vibrant
realities of creation

By aligning with
my true essence
ALL energy aligns
in service to me.

gratitude to the unknown artist

Relax into Peace

We run hither and thither
looking for peace
we rearrange our lives
we seek spirituality
we hide from the world
all in search of peace

But peace
is always present
deep within
the core of our heart
unable to be dislodged
awaiting our awareness

Take a moment
take a deep breath
and relax into peace
allowing everything
to settle into
its own perfection.
