Realization of my GodSelf

Deep in the silence
within my being
a spark of light hovers
radiant and bright
elusive yet real
hidden beyond
the veils of my mind.

Deep in the silence
rests a beingness
free of time and space
free of earthly desires
patiently awaiting
the realization
of who I AM.

Deep in the silence
I find you
every time
I surrender
to the silence
of the omnipotence
of all-that-is.

It is here that I find you
deep in the silence
as the GodSelf
that is me.

Commitment to Self

Honor your Self
by spending time
free of all distractions
for a day, a week
or even a few hours.

Sense the invitation
from the wisdom of your Soul
to fully experience
the expanded consciousness
that awaits you.

Allow your consciousness
to follow your heart
breaking free of
the old illusions
to create anew.

Immerse yourself
in your Soul’s expression
writing, artwork, music,
time away in nature or
wherever your heart calls.

A commitment made
to spend sacred time
with your GodSelf
will yield gifts
beyond your imagination.

BEing In Love

Do you remember how you felt
when you were first “in love”?

Happy… giddy… passionate
skipping through the day…
never wanting to be apart…
lifting each other UP…
knowing you can fly.

Be present with this feeling
within your Self
in every moment
totally in LOVE with YOU!!!

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.

Gift of Emptiness

What I once perceived
as loneliness
is the gift of emptiness.

For here, in the emptiness
the mind has gone quiet
free of its machinations.

It is within this emptiness
there are no boundaries
no need for protection.

It is within this emptiness
that I’m finally able to be
intimate with my human self.

It is within this emptiness
that I’m finally able to be
fully present with my GodSelf.

Here in this emptiness
I finally know and realize
All of Who I Am.

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.
