Effortless Release

When the energies
of the world around me
are doing loony cartwheels
and jackknifing off
in crazy directions

I slowly inhale
a long deep breath
fully expanding my chest
then allow the exhale
to effortlessly release
all accumulated angst

With my next deep breath
my consciousness settles
into the loving bosom
of my Inner BEing
and Peace prevails.

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.

Serenity

Savor the serenity
of quietude
peace
emptiness
and contentment
after shedding
eons of busyness
and mind chatter

Allow this to be
your new foundation
from which to
create Anew.

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.

Dissolving the Old

As old memories
drift through my consciousness
I allow them to dissolve
allowing old emotions to dissolve
allowing old beliefs to dissolve
allowing my old self to dissolve

until nothing remains
but the Wisdom
my soul has distilled
from all these experiences
adding to the core existence
of Who I AM.

Migration

When I quietly
allow the energy
attempting to move
through old
unviable pathways
without engaging
it will eventually
migrate to new
ever more vibrant
realities of creation

By aligning with
my true essence
ALL energy aligns
in service to me.

Duality is Passe’

Your world of duality is now passe’
the reflection you see is your pure Divinity
free of illusions created by man
no longer held captive by your mind

Instead, your infinite Dreams
are bathed in the embryonic fluid
in the Primordial Womb of Creation.

Do not rush the birthing
do not push and prod
Allow the gestation
free of time and space
hand in hand with
the Divine Intelligence
that is YOU.

Savoring Sweet Contentment

I awoke from
a dreamless sleep
cushioned on
a cloud of peace
in the silence
in the stillness
of sweet contentment

When the mind
began to search
for something more
I heard my Soul whisper . . .

Relax dear mind
simply relax
and savor this
sweet contentment

How is it that you
do not consider
this enough?

How is it that you
continually create
all the folderol
in a constant search
for the peace
and sweet contentment
that is always present
within the stillness
of this moment?

For it is from within
this sweet contentment
that you realize
your Self
as more than enough
and new potentials
effortlessly
reveal themselves
with ease and grace.

Assessment

When we assess
a problem that needs fixing
we’re locking ourselves
into the problem

When we diagnose
an emotional or medical condition
we’re locking ourselves
into the symptoms

When we attempt to
push through barriers
we’re locking ourselves
within the limitations

When we trust and allow
our own Divinity
every new moment
presents an infinite number
of new potentials
free of diagnosis
free of assessment
free of pushing
all in divine order
all with ease and grace.

Are you open
receive them?

Diligence

Everything you think
everything you read
everything you experience
has already been changed
by the mere act of
your thinking, reading
or experiencing it.

This is a simple fact
of quantum physics.

Enlightenment proliferates
via our diligence
in being fully Present
in the here and now
rather than carrying
anything from the past
which no longer exists
in this present moment.

Master Creators are
those who are always
in the present moment
creating anew.
