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.

Free as a Child

A child is content
to build castles in the sand
knowing they will be washed away
with the next tide,
then returns the following day
to build another
ever more glorious castle.

The wisdom of our own inner child
knows that what it builds today
need not be grasped onto
need not be protected
need not be entombed,
simply lived to the fullest
in this joyous moment.

Ah, to be the child
with our dreams and creations
enjoying them to the fullest
with playful delight
in this present moment
then allowing them to return
to the infinite sea of creation.

Ah, to be the child again
living life
joyously, freely, openly
knowing we are infinite beings.

Peace of Mind

“Peace of mind”
is the grace
being called forth
amidst the chaos.

Peace originates
in the heart
where there is
no judgment
no identity
no need to defend.

Peace originates
in the heart
where love abides
for all that is
without the need
to interfere.

It is only the mind
that is thronging
with insistent chatter.

When we sink into the heart
herein lies the grace of
“Peace of Mind”.

Liberating the Mind

Our Divine Knowing surfaces
when we liberate
the mind’s need
to understand
and be fully cognizant.

The mind does not
the mind can not
begin to understand
nor explain
our expanding consciousness.

Attempting to dissect
and explain
what the mind considers surreal
only distracts us
with useless mind chatter.

Relax, beloved one
release the mind’s
obsession to understand
and trust your divinity
to lead the way.

For your GodSelf
always orchestrates
your expanded consciousness
and fulfills your life
with ease and grace.

Seeing with the Eyes of the Soul

I asked to be shown
that which I was afraid to see
not through the human self
who sees with the eyes of judgment
rather through the eyes of my GodSelf

To see with the eyes of the soul
she who sees the bigger picture
she who realizes each has a role to play
she who holds no judgment
she who has the purity of heart.

And thus I lay my head upon my pillow
nestle under my warm duvet
and enter dreamtime. . .

Oh the stories that are spun
the characters that stride forth
the truth that is revealed
all that I had not been ready to see
but is now in full technicolor

And through the eyes of my soul
I am able to expand my consciousness
to see the bigger picture
free of any judgment
with the purity of heart.

With a deep sigh of release
the stories and emotions are distilled
into the wisdom of the soul
integrated for eternity
with a pure and gentle heart.

And so it is. . .
when we are ready
when we ask and surrender
allowing the soul free reign
the truth is revealed
our consciousness expands
all with the ease and grace
of our GodSelf.

Resting in the Flow of Change

The days of needing
to know it all
or needing to be right
are long gone.

Life is in constant flux
therefore if what I know today
does not change tomorrow
there is no growth or expansion.

I rest in the flow of change
allowing what I knew yesterday
to fade away without judging it
as right or wrong.

And I welcome
that which was unknown yesterday
to be my new playground
each and every day anew.

Memory Loss

Memory loss
can be a two edged sword.

One edge is cutting away
all that is no longer desired
all that no longer resonates
with my expanded consciousness.

The other edge is cutting away
daily routines and mindless habits
along with lifetime friends and family
that have been supporting the old memories.

One we judge as advantageous
the other disruptive
and yet. . .
are they not both of value?

For both force us to be
fully present in the now
where antiquated memory
is no longer running our lives.

So next time my mind blanks out
and I forget what I was doing
I have to ask:
Was it even important?

If not, it will simply
disappear from my life
allowing the space
for something more vital.

And if so, I know
it will cycle back around
and be fully present with me
at exactly the appropriate moment.

Therefore I can be at peace
with the perfect flow of life
knowing this moment
is the only one that matters.

New Revelations

New revelations
of expanded consciousness
are often preceded by feelings
of physical discomfort
bursts of muddled emotion
or mental confusion.

As uncomfortable
as these moments may be
the realization of new disclosures
bubbling up from within
disrupting that which
I’ve always thought to be true
allows me to rejoice in these moments,
amidst all the discomfort.

For what emerges
on the other side of this vexation
is an increased ease and grace
never before experienced
and a joy that ushers in
new venues of reality.

Going Beyond Intentions

Whenever I set an intention
it is the mind
that is drawn upon
scanning what has been
to create something better.

The mind immediately
goes into action
spending its time
weighing the old
against the new

battling it all out
in fear of trying
something new
in fear of losing
itself and what it knows.

Therefore. . .
Instead of intending
and engaging the mind
I take a deep breath
sink deeply
into my GodSelf

and I ask. . .

Show me
more of who I am
show me the magic
show me all
I have yet to discover

to BE
free of
the mind’s limitations
the old programs
and society’s constructs

to go beyond
that which
I have ever known
into the depth of myself
to excite my passion.

I do not know
what this looks like
for how could I
when it is beyond
the mind’s imagination.

However, I do know
what it feels like
it feels like
the purity of my GodSelf
it feels like Home.

Transformation of Anger

Someone pulled the pin on a grenade of visceral anger
that’s been unconsciously buried deep within me
from a long time ago.

My first reaction was toward the one who incited this anger
the one who tread upon my heart, then turned the other cheek
a story from my past.

As I sat with this anger,
allowing it to bubble and churn
allowing it to effortlessly flow out of me
without allowing it to fester, without the need to process,
I realized I am the one I have been angry with all these years
for taking it all on, for shrinking into unworthiness
for playing the victim, for groveling for acceptance
allowing someone else to control my life
for a few tidbits of superficial love.

In that moment of realization
my raging anger was spontaneously transformed
by a flood of loving compassion
for the part of me who never felt accepted
for she who never felt seen for who she truly is
for the one that was afraid to stand up for herself
for fear of being rejected
for the one who did not recognize herself
as the precious being that she is.

In that moment of consciousness
the grenade of anger exploded into a burst of love
in which I now stand strong as a sovereign being
with my head held high with an open radiant heart.

To the one who unknowingly pulled the pin on my grenade
I surround you in love and compassion
for I know you were lashing out in response
unaware of the pain and anger buried deep within you.

I pray that each one of us is able to consciously awaken
to the love that is always nestled side by side
in compassion for the anger that’s been buried within us
and may we all stand tall with open radiant hearts.
