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.

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.

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.

Deep in the Silence

Deep in the Silence…
in the ever-expanding consciousness
allowing feelings to lead the way
beyond the human mind
visions proliferate
dancing with the symphonies of the heart
in multidimensional awareness
timelines merging
clarity, simplicity, purity,
sweet Blissings
in the Knowing of Who I Am
and Who I Am Becoming
for creation is infinite
continually creating anew.

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.

Surrender to my Soul

When the human slows down
the Soul steps in
when the human goes quiet
the Soul shares its wisdom

When I surrender to my Soul
a magnet of passion
effortlessly attracts
all that I desire to me

Herein lies
my peace
my joy
and my well-being.

Soul Speaks without Words

The Soul speaks without words . . .

why does spirituality
feel the need to explain itself
with so much mental jargon
so many verbal teachings
so many affirmations
so many incantations
so many words
so much noise

that it drowns out the Soul.

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.

Mystical Embrace of the Moon

The full moon had her way with me
as she always does
seducing me into a sleepless night
while shrouding me in the mystic

I have long ago learned
to simply allow her wily ways
for she is ancient and wise
and has never steered me wrong

She beckons me high into the sky
expanding my consciousness
to see my world free of illusions
beyond the grasp of the mind

She lures me into her sacred embrace
during the darkest of the night
revealing the subtleties that cannot be seen
in the squinting glare of the sun

Together we expose the mysteries
divining all the answers
to the questions I first posed
when her back was to the sun

We listen to the hushed whispers
hearing the truth behind people’s words
in their times of broken heartedness
to soothe them with our love and compassion.

We lingered in the present moment
free of the past or future
beyond the concept of time and space
savoring All-That-Is

This morning the dawn shines brightly
with nary a moments sleep
and yet I am fully sated
by the mystical embrace of the moon.

Transcending our Thinking

There is no turning back
once we open ourselves
to living in the “unknown.

Sometimes, my human mind
feels like it’s courting chaos
attempting to put it all
in familiar linear order
but my Spirit is soaring!!!

Indeed, my Spirit does KNOW,
in moment to moment revelations,
No wonder the mind feels threatened
with new potentials opening faster
than the mind can keep up.

We simply need to transcend
our old way of thinking
wrap our arms around ALL of life
the known and the unknown,
the mind and the spirit.

Herein lies our Peace,
our childlike wonderment
and our impetus to Thrive.
