How you Feel

How you feel
is much more important
than what you do

For your actions
are always influenced
by your feelings

An action based in love
is far more miraculous
than an action based in hostility

An action based in compassion
is far more benevolent
than an action based in pity

And action based in gratitude
is far more expansive
than an action based in jealousy

An action based in joy
is far more inspiring
than an action based in obligation

An action based in peace
is far more paramount
than an action based in fear

Go deep
and feel deeply
before choosing
how to take action.

Highest Order of Service

Putting your Self first
is NOT selfish
It is the “Highest Order of Service”
to humanity and the planet

How can you
be of assistance to others
when your own energy
is discordant?

By attending to your self first
you ensure the energy you radiate
from within you
is pure Love and Compassion

BEing the Master
of your own energy
is the Highest Order of Service
and thus the Highest Good for All.

All is Well

I Am the creator
of my own reality

It is not up to me to create
anyone else’s reality

For how could I?
How can I know
what another’s
soul path is

How can I know
what experiences
they are calling in
for themselves

My attempts to
change their lives
only interferes with
their own soul path

The world does not
need me to fix it
for the world is
a collective creation

It is through each person
that humanity is learning
love and compassion
for the earth and each other

It is not up to me to
interfere in what is not mine
only to honor each person
and their soul’s path

It is up to me to
know and embody
the truth that
All Is Well

The only thing
I need do is radiate
the Love and Compassion
that is innately mine

Therewith, each person
has a new example
for a new way of being
and the world can find
a new balance within
the knowing that
All Is Well.

Blended Human

The child within me
continues to giggle
with the playfulness of life

The crone within me
has gathered the wisdom
from all my experiences

Together
they blend into a
wise
loving
compassionate
joyful
human

Who savors
and honors
all the sacred gifts
of being human
in union with
Mother Nature
who has always been
my most esteemed
partner in life.

Gift of Compassion

Compassion has become
one of my most intimate teachers

Compassion, like forgiveness
is not about the other person
it is a gift to my self
the gift of maintaining
an open heart
by withdrawing
my own judgment
with the realization
that I do not appreciate
other’s interference
with my own life choices
therefore I have no right
to judge others

With compassion
I live with an open heart
no longer triggered
by anger from another
no longer provoked with
the need to defend my self
no longer attempting
to improve another person
no longer prompted
to change humanity

With compassion
I become a sovereign being
able to honor each person
on their own sacred journey
in their own sovereignty

Herein lies my true Freedom
because a closed heart
lacking compassion
limits my ability
to live a full
and fruitful life

Compassion has become
Who I Am and how I live my life
thus, my life has become
so much more enjoyable.

Take a deep breathe and
give your self
the Gift of Compassion.

Realizing Our Divinity (Volume II)

Introducing  REALIZING OUR DIVINITY,  Volume II of “Wisdom of the Inner Voice”
available for purchase in paperback and ebook
https://www.amazon.com/author/sharonlynshepard

We are so much more than we realize. As humans beings, we have been functioning within society’s pre-programed human mind in a highly complicated world. Our human self has become preoccupied with the trials and tribulations of daily life in order to survive. There is little time to be still and quiet to reflect upon who we truly are.

We have forgotten that we are God embodied in physical form, each in our own unique way of experiencing and expressing life. We have forgotten our spiritual greatness and the embodiment of our wisdom as the Divine within us.

Religion has gone to great lengths to separate us from God by giving “him” a separate persona outside of ourselves as a masculine god. A judgmental god that lives far off in the heavens with angels as his messengers and leaders of the church as his go-between. As a result of being referred to as children of God, we have forsaken our sovereignty. We judge ourselves so harshly we feel totally unworthy of Love or that we could possibly be the embodiment of God.

And yet, this is the truth of who we are and have always been. There is no mystery, there are no teachings required, and it takes no effort. It is quite simple. When we approach life as heart-centered, our Self-knowing presents itself. With every action, God is revealing Itself to us, as us. It is in each of these moments, by remembering the totality of Who We Are as Divine Humans, that we find the love and peace that surpasses our human understanding.

Chapter Titles
GodSelf
Healing Separation
Divine Human
Beyond the Human Mind
Heart Centered
Inner Being
All That I AM
Alignment
Self Knowing
Peace

I invite you to take a few moments each day to be still and quiet, allowing these words of poetry to illuminate the truth of who you are as a Divine Human and the realization of your GodSelf in physical form.

Kindness

You may not agree with me
because we are all unique
each in our own precious way

There is harmony to be found
and new realities discovered
by sharing our uniqueness

But unless you can share
your personal views with
open-hearted kindness
it’s falling on deaf ears.

Your Presence of Love

You entered the world on a beam of light
radiant being filled with wonder
You danced in on a song of Love
bringing joy and delight.

You came in with a message of hope
a wealth of wisdom and compassion
You ushered in a time of harmony
with hope of a better world, a world of peace.

Your gift of presence, simple and pure
expands and grows, touching all.
Your hope and wisdom, love and joy,
awaken us to a world of pure delight.

You touched our hearts, they’re bursting open,
with your presence Love now grows.
You fill our hearts to overflowing
with your presence Love now grows.

With your presence, Love grows.

It Takes an Open Heart

It takes an open heart
to hear what others have to say
when it’s beyond
my present understanding.

It takes an open heart
to hear what others have to say
to grow and expand beyond
the limitations of a closed mind.

It takes an open heart
to hear what others have to say
without judgment and the need
to sway them to my beliefs.

It takes an open heart
to hear what others have to say
from a place of compassion
honoring each unique soul path.

It takes an open heart
to hear what others have to say
to create a thriving community
with the diversity shared by all.

It takes an open heart
to expand our consciousness
personally and collectively
as creators of Heaven on Earth.
