Precious Human

My beloved human
do you not realize
how precious you are?

You think your self
unworthy

You think your self
a sinner

You think your self
weak and ailing

You think your self
lacking

You think your self
unloveable

All these things
you think
with your mind

When you go
beyond the mind
beyond thinking

What you will find
is the perfection of
a cherished human.

A precious human
that embodies all the divinity
of love, joy and compassion.

There is nothing
more precious than
being human.

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.

Love and Compassion of the Soul

The deeper we go
within our selves
the more of our unconsciousness
is brought to the surface
playing out in full view.

As the dross is stirred,
the more raw
the more tender
the more vulnerable
we allow ourselves to be
in the face of what feels threatening,
the more easily it’s dissolved
by the light of day.

What is revealed
is the love and compassion
our soul has for us
with its all-knowing wisdom
ever guiding us
with the most gentle
ease and grace
if we allow.

Breathe deeply, Beloved
invite the revelations
of your soul
to introduce you
to the totality of
the Divine Love that you are
with its gentle ease and grace.

Welcome to the Renaissance

Welcome to the Renaissance
the evolution of humanity
the transcendence of duality
the reemergence of the Divine.

In order to transcend duality
we realize everything that presents itself
serves a divine purpose
for our awakening.

old wounds are surfacing
for compassionate healing

ingrained habits questioned
to break out of old molds

antiquated beliefs examined
to create new systems

all stirring up life
as we’ve known it

all for our observation
free of right or wrong

no need to defend
no need to fix anything

This Renaissance is calling forth
loving compassionate hearts 
for all who are in turmoil

the renewal of faith and trust
in the goodness of one another

open minds to the genesis
of new potentials

the honoring of each other’s
sacred individual soul journeys

and most of all. . .
the reawakening
of the Divine in each of us.

gratitude to the artist: Birth of Venus by Botticelli

I Am Woman

I Am Woman
I Am the Divine Feminine
I do not do battle as a man does
but do not mistake that as complacency.

My spear
strikes at the heart
not to kill
nor to conquer
but to soften
and dissolve the barriers
that have attempted
to keep love at bay.

I do not carry a shield
for I have nothing to protect
my protection is the fire of love
which will transform
anything you may aim at me
my protection is compassion
which will disarm you
and melt your desire to fight.

I stand in my power
the power to give birth
to that which is born
of our coming together
in divine partnership
in love and harmony
for the co-creation
of eternal life itself.

I Am Woman
I Am the Divine Feminine
I stand strong and powerful
I stand in Love and Compassion.

I AM the Chalice of All-That-Is

I sat with Mother Mary
and Love flowed through my being
I sat with Yeshua
and forgiveness flooded my heart
I sat with Buddha
and peace was found in the stillness
I sat with Quan Yin
and compassion enveloped me
I sat with the Ancestors
and clarity ensued
I sat with Merlin
and magic sparkled within me
I sat with the Fae
and joy danced around me.

I AM
the Love of Mary
forgiveness of Yeshua
peace of Buddha
compassion of Quan Yin
clarity of my Ancestors
magic of Merlin
and the joy of the Fae.

There is no need
for me to seek for anything
outside of myself
when I remember
I AM the chalice of All-That-Is
and it is in the sharing of Who I AM
that I become a role model for others.

Compassion of Love

The compassion of Love
brings all that has been hidden in the darkness
all that needs clearing and forgiveness
all to the surface with ease and grace.

There is no need to process all the gunk
there is no need to figure it all out
simply open your heart
and allow Love to do what it does best.

As you move through this healing process
know that you are being rocked
in the sweet gentle bosom
of Love and Compassion.

Shadows in Search of Love

Our lurking shadows are our wounded parts
“acting out” in search of Love.

Those shadows are a sacred part of us
isn’t it time to invite them into our heart space
to be nurtured with love and compassion
just like an innocent wounded child.

When we do, they revel in our love
and blossom into full radiant color
rather than continuing to “act out”
as the shadows of black and white.

The Erupting Heart

Everything is erupting!
Words are flying
energies are exploding
our feelings
our personal lives
and the world stage.

And yet, everything that’s erupting
is all about Love.

At the core of it all
it is the Heart that’s erupting
no longer willing to be ignored
no longer willing to be walled in
no longer willing to be contained.

For some this feels like
long-awaited freedom
for others
it’s like pulling off the scab
of a festering wound.

Healing requires love and compassion

Can you be
the love and compassion
the world needs right now
as all that is not Love
is imploding upon itself

Can you be
the love and compassion
the world needs right now
until it results in free-flowing
unadulterated Love for all.

Gratitude to the artist Valerie Graniou Cook

Courage to Love

It takes far more courage
to love than it does to hate,
far more courage to have compassion
than to inflict harm,
far more courage to see the God in you
no matter what you think of me.

It takes far more courage
for me to step away
from engaging in verbal warfare
once my mind has armed itself
with its incessant words
of mass destruction.

It takes far more courage
to lay down my weapons
of judgment and criticism
and allow my heart to lead
because my heart
sees the God in you.

It takes courage to Love
and courage to embrace with Compassion.
How courageous can you be?
