Lighten Up

Making a serious commitment
to your Self above all else
is crucial to your Embodied Enlightenment.

However,
being too serious about the process
will entangle you
in the quagmire of the mind
that creates its own chaos.

Once you put a little giggle
in your walk you’ll be surprised
how fun Enlightenment can be!!!

Labyrinth of Enlightenment

The Labyrinth of Enlightenment
is a sacred soul journey
of awakening, self-discovery
healing, and transformation
weaving its way from the edges
of our carefully crafted human persona
toward the heart of our Inner Being.

Just when we think we’ve attained
the bliss and goal of nirvana
the chaos of transformation spins us
back out to the edge of the circle
for a more expanded view.

It takes courage and trust to begin
edging our way back to the center again
with our newly acquired wisdom
only to be spun out to the edges
for yet another expanded view.

This divine design is the Soul’s
loving way of guiding us
through our many layers of healing
weaving all our broken or forgotten parts
into full and compete embodiment.

Thus there is no error on our part
all these experiences are essential
to the awakening and embodiment
of the multidimensionality
of our Divinity.

Transformation is not comfortable
for the human aspect of ourselves
but when we surrender
all our fears to our Godself
the path can be one of ease and grace.

Once you reach the center
allow yourself to rest awhile
to savor the distilled wisdom
from all your experiences
before journeying back outward.

Trust that the labyrinth of enlightenment
will always lead you to the center
of your sacred Inner Being
with a more expanded consciousness
and the newly attained divine wisdom
to engage in the world
as the Embodiment of the Divine.

Cauldron of my Heart

There are times. . .
my outer world feels like
everything has come to a standstill.
Nothing appears to be happening
despite the racing of my mind
in search of something to do
to give itself credence
in a world that’s gone amuck
in pretenses that make no sense.

Meanwhile. . .
my inner sanctum
is bubbling in answer
to the quickening call of the Divine
with each expansion of Consciousness
and my Creator Self is cooking up
a delicious spicy stew
to be stirred and savored
with the essences of Love and Joy.

When I dip my spoon
into the cauldron of my heart
and raise it to my lips
it brings sublime nourishment
and courage to express anew
that which others fail to notice
in a world of busyness
that has naught
to render a pause.

Thus, my BeLoveds,
tend the bubbling of your heart
and serve up your bowls of Love and Joy
to those who are in need
of the nourishment of the Divine.

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”.

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.

Confusion vs Clarity

I love CLARITY!!

And I also appreciate confusion
for confusion means
I’m sitting on the brink
of an expansion of consciousness.

With every new expansion,
my mind initially foibles around
in a temporary state of confusion
trying to make sense of the new.

But once everything is aligned
a new clarity ensues
a new way of being is revealed
and life becomes more exhilarating.

There is no need to hurry
or push through the confusion
because the more we honor it
the more tidbits of clarity we receive.

And what a JOY that is!!!

When I love the confusion
as much as I love clarity
I experience expansion
within expansion
within expansion.

Thus my consciousness
is in constant expansion
in constant bloom.

Let there be Light

In the midst of the chaos…
The Creator said, “Let there be Light.”

As humanity is in the midst of it’s own chaos,
it’s time for us to say, “Let there be Light.”

That we may we see
with expanded Consciousness
and Create Anew.

gratitude to the unknown artist

Alchemy of Love

By surrendering
to the alchemy of Love
fear is transformed into trust
doubt into wisdom
tears into grace
judgement into compassion
and chaos into harmony.

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.

I Create my Reality

Sweet Innocence
Scent of Beauty
Wings of Freedom
This is my stance as Creator.

Without imposition
nor the chaos of transition
I am free to create
from pure Divinity.

Beyond the human mind
beyond past experience
beyond time space
beyond what’s ever been before.

I Am a universal being
expanding consciousness
with the wonderment of a child
and the heart of a human.

I Create my Reality . . .
