Game of Enlightenment

The human mind can play
the game of enlightenment
but it knows not of enlightenment
for it can only draw upon
the replays of the past.

But the purity of the soul
does not harbor
any shadows of the past
it is always experiencing life
fresh and new.

We can not study enlightenment
we can only experience it
for it is through the soul
we become enlightened
not through the mind.

Enlightenment is not a goal
it is a continual
expansion of consciousness
with infinite potentials
brought into the light.

When we surrender to the soul
we are naturally enlightened
living life fresh and new
in the light of eternal expansion
with effortless Ease and Grace.

Amazing Grace

The gift of Grace is freely given
we do not need to pray for it
we do not need to earn it
we do not need to fight for it
we simply need to
remove our blinders
open our hearts and minds
and receive. . .
Amazing Grace.

No Valor in Suffering

There is no valor in suffering
your GodSelf does not ask you
to learn through fear or pain.

Your GodSelf knows not
of fear, nor pain, nor suffering
these are old human concepts

handed down through the ages
from antiquated programming
no longer valid.

When feeling any discomfort
immediately rise to the highest orientation
and view the situation anew.
This is not denial
wearing rose colored glasses
or putting your head in the sand.

This is living from
your expanded consciousness
that offers infinite solutions
rather than drawing upon
the old battle-worn experiences
that initially plummeted your energy.

Rise up, Beloveds
see clearly as your GodSelf
and take the path of Ease and Grace.

Spiritual Suffering

Enlightenment is a natural process
experienced via our daily lives
simply by the way we respond to life.
Enlightenment does not require us
to suffer, nor to work at it.

Suffering will continue being
the path to enlightenment
as long as we keep adding notches
to our spiritual suffering belt
as evidence that we are evolving.

Once we take a deep breath
go deep within
and consult our Soul
it will tell you,
Dear dear human
there are easier paths
YOU get to choose,
suffering or ease and grace.

Peace of Mind

“Peace of mind”
is the grace
being called forth
amidst the chaos.

Peace originates
in the heart
where there is
no judgment
no identity
no need to defend.

Peace originates
in the heart
where love abides
for all that is
without the need
to interfere.

It is only the mind
that is thronging
with insistent chatter.

When we sink into the heart
herein lies the grace of
“Peace of Mind”.

Liberating the Mind

Our Divine Knowing surfaces
when we liberate
the mind’s need
to understand
and be fully cognizant.

The mind does not
the mind can not
begin to understand
nor explain
our expanding consciousness.

Attempting to dissect
and explain
what the mind considers surreal
only distracts us
with useless mind chatter.

Relax, beloved one
release the mind’s
obsession to understand
and trust your divinity
to lead the way.

For your GodSelf
always orchestrates
your expanded consciousness
and fulfills your life
with ease and grace.

Wisdom of the Soul

I asked to be shown
that which I was afraid to see
not as my human self
who sees with the eyes of judgment,
rather with the eyes of my Soul
who sees the bigger picture
who realizes each has a role to play
who holds no judgment
who has the purity of heart.

And thus I lay my head upon my pillow
nestle under my warm duvet
and enter dreamtime. . .

Through the eyes of my soul
my consciousness expands
to see the bigger picture
free of any judgment
with the purity of heart.

Oh the stories that are spun
the characters that stride forth
the truth that’s revealed
all that I had not been ready to see
now in full technicolor.
With a deep sigh of release
the stories and emotions
are distilled into
the wisdom of the soul
and integrated for eternity.

And so it is. . .
when we are ready
when we ask and surrender
allowing the soul free reign
our consciousness expands
and our wisdom is revealed
all with the ease and grace
of our Soul.

Resting in the Flow of Change

The days of needing
to know it all
or needing to be right
are long gone.

Life is in constant flux
therefore if what I know today
does not change tomorrow
there is no growth or expansion.

I rest in the flow of change
allowing what I knew yesterday
to fade away without judging it
as right or wrong.

And I welcome
that which was unknown yesterday
to be my new playground
each and every day anew.

Being Fully Present

Memory loss
can be a two edged sword.

One edge is cutting away
all that is no longer desired
all that no longer resonates
with my expanded consciousness.

The other edge is cutting away
daily routines and mindless habits
along with lifetime friends and family
that have been supporting the old memories.

One we judge as advantageous
the other disruptive
and yet. . .
are they not both of value?

For both force us to be
fully present in the now
where antiquated memory
is no longer running our lives.

So next time my mind blanks out
and I forget what I was doing
I have to ask:
Was it even important?

If not, it will simply
disappear from my life
allowing the space
for something more vital.

And if so, I know
it will cycle back around
and be fully present with me
at exactly the appropriate moment.

Therefore I can be at peace
with the perfect flow of life
knowing this moment
is the only one that matters.

New Revelations

New revelations
of expanded consciousness
are often preceded by feelings
of physical discomfort
bursts of muddled emotion
or mental confusion.

As uncomfortable
as these moments may be
the realization of new disclosures
bubbling up from within
disrupting that which
I’ve always thought to be true
allows me to rejoice in these moments,
amidst all the discomfort.

For what emerges
on the other side of this vexation
is an increased ease and grace
never before experienced
and a joy that ushers in
new venues of reality.
