Courage to Leave

When you have the courage
to leave behind a world that you love,
know that which you are stepping into
is far superior to what you are leaving behind.

It Takes an Open Heart

It takes an open heart
to hear what others have to say
when it’s beyond
my present understanding.

It takes an open heart
to hear what others have to say
to grow and expand beyond
the limitations of a closed mind.

It takes an open heart
to hear what others have to say
without judgment and the need
to sway them to my beliefs.

It takes an open heart
to hear what others have to say
from a place of compassion
honoring each unique soul path.

It takes an open heart
to hear what others have to say
to create a thriving community
with the diversity shared by all.

It takes an open heart
to expand our consciousness
personally and collectively
as creators of Heaven on Earth.

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.

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.

New Revelations

Physical discomfort
bursts of muddled emotion
or mental confusion
often precede
new revelations
of expanded consciousness.

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.

Spiritual Quest

At some point we realize
all spiritual teachings
are speaking to the mind
the human mind
that is constantly
seeking self validation.

When it fails to find it
in the outer world
it thinks it can find it in spirituality,
but life is in constant flux
thus the answers and the questions
are ever changing and evolving.

The human mind
has no concept of spirituality.

For spirituality
can only be experienced
as the purity of consciousness
where all the answers lie
in the wisdom of the moment
each moment with its own wisdom.

Therefore the spiritual quest
comes to naught
until finally battle weary
we set ourselves free of the quest
and lay down the gauntlet
of spirituality

By realizing . . .
in the ever flowing
change of life
the questions change
the answers change
and we evolve

What is eternal
is the purity of Wisdom
effortlessly gleaned
from within our Divinity
ever present
in each and every moment.

Herein we find ourselves
at Peace.

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.

Illusion of Life


Our life is an illusion
our Soul set the stage
chose the characters
and scripted the story
long before we incarnated
onto the planet.

We’ve been playing all of our roles
with great gusto ever since!!!

As the stage lights rise
and the light absorbs the illusion
we can see what lies behind
the masks and the props
as our GodSelf
beings shining through.

The question is:
Will you continue playing
your old part simply out of habit?
or. . .
Do you choose to script new ones
as the Brilliant Creator that you are?

Serenity of Source

Life may seem in turmoil
as it shifts and shimmies
continually evolving
from the old into the new.

That which you perceive
as maelstrom in life
is simply the decay of the old
as the new sprouts forth.

At the very core
beneath what you
perceive as chaos
lies the Serenity of Well-being.

For, Source only knows
the perfection of life
the essence of well-being
and the joy of creation.

When we expand our consciousness
beyond our human perspective
experiencing life
as Source experiences life

Herein lies our innate serenity
our sense of well-being
our radiant health
our infinite flow of abundance.

Perceiving as Source
life takes on a whole new hue
free of worry and judgment
filled with joy and delight.

See with the eyes of Source
hear with the ears of Source
feel with the heart of Source
Be Source.

Live your Joy

The easiest way to uplift the world
is to live your Joy!

You may think it sacrilegious
to live your joy
when so many are suffering
but are they benefiting
by your woebegone attitude?

Lift yourself up
allow your light to shine
be the Joy of Life
which is the medicine
being called forth for healing.

Be the Joy
and watch the whole world
transform in the wake of your Joy!!
