Reality

The illusion in which we live
is nothing more than
the stories created by our minds
when we let go of the stories
what remains is reality
and that reality
is Love.

Removing the Mask

You can drape it with silk
and encrust it with jewels
but sooner or later
you realize
your mask
has served it’s purpose
and it’s time
to lovingly remove it
and set it aside
to experience and embrace
the Beloved Self
who you have always been
and have yet to become.

My Inner Sanctum

My Inner Sanctum
is the Holy of Holies
the place of honoring
the purity of
all of Who I Am

My inner Sanctum
retains all the Wisdom
my Soul has distilled
from all my experiences
through all my lifetimes
reflecting it
into my outer world

My Inner Sanctum
has no room
for religious texts
teachings from gurus
stories of old
nor judgment
from self or others

My Inner Sanctum
is my sovereign
place of wisdom
with the answers
to all my questions

When I live and respond
from within my Inner Sanctum
I am at Peace and
I Am Free.

In This Moment

Always do
whatever feels right
in this moment
without looking back
without judgment

For this moment
is not the same
as the moments
that have passed

This circumstance
is not the same
as the circumstances
that have passed

Each moment
each circumstance
is new
unto itself

Be present
in this moment
and allow the wisdom
of your heart
to lead
without judgment.

My Own Reality

My current point of consciousness
where I place my attention
is my only reality
everything else is
null and void
in this moment

There is no need
to resurrect the past
to engage
in past suffering
to face old dragons
rewrite the old stories

By being steadfast
in my present
point of consciousness
everything else
effortlessly
fades away

Indeed we see life
through our own filters
but even they dissolve
when we release
judgment of the past
and fear of the future

Indeed we interact
with group consciousness
but it is our own
point of consciousness
that creates
within the group

Therefore, carefully choose
your point of consciousness
be steadfast
in attending to it
and allow everything else
to effortlessly dissolve

THIS is how we create
our own reality.

Remembrance

After releasing all
of who I thought I was
my persona
my relationships
my job
my home
my lifestyle
my identity
my old existence

I sit here
free of all that was
in the stillness
in the quiet
in that which
I thought was a void

Allowing
the remembrance
of all of
Who I Am
to bubble forth
and create anew

It does not look
like I thought
it would look
for the mind
never knew
Who I AM

It does not feel
like I thought
it would feel
for my emotions
were never the reality
of Who I AM

So what is my reality
what is this new life?

As soon as
I answer those
questions
I am recreating
as I was
as I used to
think myself to be

Instead
I allow reality
to reveal itself
in each
and every moment
in a new life

With a new found
freedom
without the need
to describe
without the need
to identify

For I know
Who I AM
at the core
of my existence
and that is
eternal freedom

Gift of Experience

Experience
every experience
is a gift.

There are no levels
of experience
high or low
good or bad
unless we choose
to judge them as such
and then the experience
becomes a burden
rather than a gift.

We have the opportunity
to accept the gift
of every experience
as a treasure of wisdom
to more fully love ourselves
and open more fully to life.

Time of Separation

Humanity incarnated
into physicality
separating
into a multitude
of diverse aspects
to better know our Self
by experiencing life
to the fullest

After eons of time
we got lost
in the separation
of our profusion
of aspects and personas
with a need to defend
who we thought
ourselves to be

This time of separation
is now drawing to a close
the consciousness of life
via our experiences
has expanded
all of our aspects
refined into radiant facets
unifying into our Oneness

We arise
from the ashes
purified
in our wholeness
enlightened
in our sovereignty
with the wisdom
of the phoenix

We soar
with spread wings
able to see
the expanded view
beyond separation
reveling in our sovereignty
as our radiant GodSelf
congruent with All-That-Is.

Credence

That which is looking for credence in your life
is actually looking for release
for it is only in setting it all free
that we are able to come fully home
to the place of no-thing-ness
where there is no need for credence.

Remaining Open is Enough

We go through our lives living blindly
parroting what others have taught us
until our innate Divinity flips the switch

To see with new eyes, hear with new ears
as a new reality effortlessly
replaces the old with ease and grace.

There’s no need to work so hard at Enlightenment
your willingness to remain fully Open is enough
the GodSelf within you will take care of the rest.
