True to Who I Am

Who am I?

The one acting out
a persona projected upon me
by those around me.

The one playing the part
to maintain the status quo
to make others comfortable.

The one creating stories
to validate who I think
I should be.

The one fabricating excuses
when a simple “no thank you”
will do.

or . . .

Am I courageous enough
to step back from the drama
as the observer.

Am I courageous enough
to sit in the silence
no longer compelled to fill it.

Am I courageous enough
to surrender
all that others think I am.

Am I courageous enough
to simply be
true to Who I Am.

Embodiment

For many years
we’ve been speaking
spiritual words
spiritual concepts
spiritual teachings.

For many years
we’ve been seeking
we’ve been the students
we’ve been the teachers
we’ve become the gurus.

Oh my Beloveds,those years are past . . .

Mental jargon
only continues to
spin more tales
and add to the many tomes
of enlightenment.

A shift in consciousness
can only occur
when you dive deeply
into the frailties
of your humanness.

It requires you
to fully embody
the words
the concepts
the teachings.

What you will discover
is that the human
has never been frail
it is only the mind
that is frail.

What you will discover
by diving deeply
into the human experience
is the true knowing
of Who You Are.

Full Bodied Commitment

Above all else
I am committed to Peace
Above all else
I am committed to Love
Above all else
I am committed to Joy.
.
These are not fleeting moments
sandwiched between the dramas of life,
This is my full bodied commitment
as I sift through life
and only choose that
which expands my consciousness.
.
This is my full bodied commitment:
Above all else
I choose to live
as an Enlightened Master
while walking Heaven on Earth.

The Golden Age

The Golden Age
is ours to create,
it will not happen on its own,
it requires
Love
Compassion
Patience and
Tolerance
especially in the midst of transition,
least we not expand
our consciousness
but continue to widen
the polar divide.

Expressing from an Ever Expanding Heart

For years I’ve had
devotional books
stacked beside my bed
reading a morning passage
to set the tone of my day.

I am ever grateful
for these Master’s words
that have guided me toward
my true devotion
which is my heart.

I now realize
I too am a Master
with volumes
of passages
within me.

And now…
I AM devoted
to the words
expressing from my own
ever expanding heart.

Vying for your Love

How much of my life have I spent
vying for your love?
I changed my appearance,
I changed my actions,
I even changed how I felt.
Always unsure
if you loved me.

But how could you love me?
When you didn’t even know me,
because I never knew myself,
as I shape shifted
like a crazy chameleon
in response to you,
in response to the world around me.

But I finally realized,
your love isn’t the issue.
For it was my love of self
that I was in search of.
And now that I know who I Am,
it matters not
if you love me or not.

For I am enthralled
in a passionate love affair
with my Self,
and
in love
with
All That Is.

Beating the drum

You are a Sovereign being.
You are also part of the collective.

When the collective energy is all amuck,
you have a choice. . .

You can beat the drum of the collective
or you can be the Peace in the eye of the storm.

The choice is always yours.
Whichever you choose,
do it with full Consciousness.

Yes I Am!!!

The words “yes, but….”
will reap you more of the same
with even more intensity.

Why not wipe the word “but”
from your vocabulary
and shout. . .

YES, I AM committed to this new way of being!!
YES, I AM willing to do what it takes!
YES, I LOVE ME enough to follow through without any more excuses!!!
