Nature’s Subtle Quietness

There is a subtle quietness
on the eve of the autumn equinox
as nature takes her last inbreathe
inhaling all the abundance
and all the beauty
she has sown forth.

There is a subtle quietness
before she exhales
initiating the changing of the season
with leaves fluttering to the ground
and petals unfurling
for their last hurrah.

There is a subtle quietness
as the days get shorter
and nights get longer
calling us into
an inner embrace of silence
where all things
are quiet and at peace.

There is much to be learned
from nature’s subtle silence
between the in-breathe
and the out-breath
where all things
are transitioning
with ease and grace.

Gift of Surrender

With every expansion of consciousness
we awaken to a new level of knowing
which requires a surrendering
of what we thought to be true.

Surrender can be as easy
as taking a breath
or
surrender can become
a battle ground for the ego.

Whereas the ego thinks
surrender is loosing the battle
a giving up of what it thinks
is right and important.

The evolved human knows
surrender is the divine grace
that dissolves all barriers
between us and our divine birthright.

Surrender
is a breath away
your expanded consciousness
is a breath away
your divine birthright
is a breath away.

Love and Compassion of the Soul

The deeper we go
within our selves
the more of our unconsciousness
is brought to the surface
playing out in full view.

As the dross is stirred,
the more raw
the more tender
the more vulnerable
we allow ourselves to be
in the face of what feels threatening,
the more easily it’s dissolved
by the light of day.

What is revealed
is the love and compassion
our soul has for us
with its all-knowing wisdom
ever guiding us
with the most gentle
ease and grace
if we allow.

Breathe deeply, Beloved
invite the revelations
of your soul
to introduce you
to the totality of
the Divine Love that you are
with its gentle ease and grace.

Breathe with Source

Stop . . . take a moment
your own personal moment
withdraw from the hubbub of life
take a deep breath
and find your still point.

Here you will feel
Source
breathing into you
breathing with you
filling you
with ease and grace
soothing you
with gentleness
transforming everything
that is not of Love.

Stop . . . take a moment
take a deep breath with Source
and find Peace.

New Cycle of Creation

The mind has been creating
via force for so long
it knows not how to
surrender to our divinity
it knows not how to
trust the present moment
it knows not how to
allow the infinite flow of energy

It only knows how to
ramp up energy
by stirring emotions
and feeding on drama
to push through barriers
and perceived limitations
in order to accomplish things

Consequently,
this shift into new consciousness
is a huge challenge for the mind
which has exhausted itself
and your physical body
by continually bumping up
against human limitations.

Once we have broken free
of the outmoded human perceptions
and the antiquated mental programing
we are are floating in the unknown
where the mind feels
confused and unsafe.

Relax, breathe deeply,
soothe its fear and turmoil
much as you might a frightened child
allowing your mind to acclimate
knowing it will eventually
delight in its new playground.

As master creators
we are in the process
of jump-starting a new cycle of creation
by trusting our divinity
engaging with the infinite flow of energy
and accessing creation in the present moment
to manifest in superior new ways.

Breathe of Spirit

Breathe,
Beloved one,
Breathe.
For with each in~breath,
there is an out~breath.
With each expansion,
there is a clearing.
As the breath…

Life
has a rhythm
and a natural flow,
growth
and rest
all in perfect balance.

As the breath…
Change
is organic
energy in,
energy out,
a perfect recycling
in symbiotic flow.

Why clutch onto
what was.
To do so
is a
slow
unnatural
death.

Life
requires
the breath of Spirit,
the unfurling of wings.
Life
requires
Change.

The Need for Space

As the world explodes
with a cacophony
of mental chatter,
emotional turmoil
and external stimulus,
I need space,
lots
of
space.

Space between
my thoughts,
Space between
my actions,
Space between
my desires.

‘Tis the space
betwixt it all
that allows
the Divine
to breathe into me
to soothe,
to gentle,
to caress.

‘Tis the space
betwixt it all
that allows
the Divine
to breathe into me
to rejuvenate,
to revitalize,
to enliven.

‘Tis the space
betwixt it all
that allows
the Divine
to breathe into me
bringing me
back to life
as my Soul
knows itself
to be.
