Sovereign Being

A Sovereign being
is an amalgamation
of the purity of All that is you
held within the chalice of your heart
as all the aspects of your GodSelf.

A Sovereign being
is not a patchwork of
repeating other people’s words
following other people’s beliefs
or mimicking other people’s actions.

A Sovereign being
stands tall in their wisdom
no longer searching
outside themselves
for what they know is within.

A Sovereign being
is bright in their radiance
content in their countenance
and at peace with
Who they Are.

Precious Human

My beloved human
do you not realize
how precious you are?

You think your self
unworthy

You think your self
a sinner

You think your self
weak and ailing

You think your self
lacking

You think your self
unloveable

All these things
you think
with your mind

When you go
beyond the mind
beyond thinking

What you will find
is the perfection of
a cherished human.

A precious human
that embodies all the divinity
of love, joy and compassion.

There is nothing
more precious than
being human.

True to Who I Am

Who am I?

The one acting out
a persona projected upon me
by those around me.

The one playing the part
to maintain the status quo
to make others comfortable.

The one creating stories
to validate who I think
I should be.

The one fabricating excuses
when a simple “no thank you”
will do.

or . . .

Am I courageous enough
to step back from the drama
as the observer.

Am I courageous enough
to sit in the silence
no longer compelled to fill it.

Am I courageous enough
to surrender
all that others think I am.

Am I courageous enough
to simply be
true to Who I Am.

Love Incarnate

Your Divine Self
has always loved you.
As you opened yourself
to allow that Love to trickle in,
your human self
began to fall in love
with your humanness.

And thus . . .
you are now in the throws
of a passionate love affair,
with the realization that
you have always been
and always will be
Love incarnate.

Embodiment

For many years
we’ve been speaking
spiritual words
spiritual concepts
spiritual teachings.

For many years
we’ve been seeking
we’ve been the students
we’ve been the teachers
we’ve become the gurus.

Oh my Beloveds,those years are past . . .

Mental jargon
only continues to
spin more tales
and add to the many tomes
of enlightenment.

A shift in consciousness
can only occur
when you dive deeply
into the frailties
of your humanness.

It requires you
to fully embody
the words
the concepts
the teachings.

What you will discover
is that the human
has never been frail
it is only the mind
that is frail.

What you will discover
by diving deeply
into the human experience
is the true knowing
of Who You Are.

Fully Available

So many pieces of myself
I have given away
in hopes that others may feel loved
in hopes others may find happiness
in hopes others may feel safe and secure.

In the end, I was left bereft and empty
with nothing of myself remaining,
and yet it has helped them not
for in depending upon me
they too have lost themselves.

And now that I have reclaimed
all of who I Am
as a whole and sovereign being
I am fully available to others
as the example
of a unique expression of the Divine
living life to the fullest
that they too may find it in themselves.

The Call for Love

Do you hear the call
the call of your human self
calling out for more Love.

You hear it
in your angst about the world events
in your fear of not being loved by another
in the pain or illness of your body
in the anger at not being heard
in the sadness of loss

Sometimes the call
is a soft whisper barely noticeable
other times it’s roaring like a lion
rampant thoughts repeating in your head
a stab in the stomach
tears streaming down your face.

These are the calls asking for more Love
easily remedied
when you wrap your arms
around your human self
whispering I Love You
and remember the truth of Who You Are
as Divine Love.

Smitten

Smitten is the word
I awoke with this morning
smitten with the Love affair
that’s blossoming with my Self.

Enamored by the Love
that’s always present
ever flowing
never judging.

Infatuated with the Joy
that bubbles up from within
for no reason
other than I exist.

Enchanted by the Magic
that playfully
continues to awaken
new aspects of me.

Besotted with the flow
of everyday life
as I allow it
to have its way with me.

No longer caught up in the old adages
of a human style love affair
addled with requirements
and unrequited expectations.

Back in the arms of the Divine
sweet gentle embraced and content
crazy mad in Love with my Self
smitten in the knowing of Who I Am.

Divine Love

I am Love
therefore. . .
I do not need to give Love
I do not need to receive Love
because
I AM already Love.

You are Love
therefore. . .
you do not need to give Love
you do not need to receive Love
because
You ARE already Love.

Divine Love
is an energy field radiating from within
whereas . .
human love requires an exchange of love
I give you love and
I expect you to return that love.

Divine Love
is eternally expanding
thus . . .
there is no need
for measurement
nor for possession.

When I know myself as Love
and
You know yourself as Love
We are free to live life fully
as Sovereign Beings
in Love with All That Is.

Beyond the Human Perspective

It is never up to you to change another person
consider. . .
how you feel when someone wants to change you?

However, you can change the relationship
by going beyond the human perspectives that limit us,
a sincere conversation between our Higher Self
and the Higher Self of another
has the potential to expand the consciousness of both
and create a new enlightened relationship
that bleeds over into all our relationships.

Reach out . . .
BE the change you are looking for
and watch your world evolve
in ways you could never have imagined.
