You are Extraordinary

When you are fully present
everything you see
is extraordinary,
everything you touch
is extraordinary,
everything you taste
is extraordinary.
YOU are extraordinary.

Why would you spend
even one iota of your attention
anywhere other than the fullness of
this extraordinary moment
flowing from
this extraordinary moment
to the next with the natural
ease and grace of the Divine.

Relax into Peace

We run hither and thither
looking for peace
we rearrange our lives
we seek spirituality
we hide from the world
all in search of peace

But peace
is always present
deep within
the core of our heart
unable to be dislodged
awaiting our awareness

Take a moment
take a deep breath
and relax into peace
allowing everything
to settle into
its own perfection.

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?

Courageous Exploration

Beyond words
floating in and out
of cohesive consciousness
living in a parallel world
a new playground
creating in ways
our mind has yet
to comprehend

The old world no longer
registers with me
including most of the
affirmations and teachings
which have graciously
brought us to this point

I am living in the unknown
per my mind
and the fully Known
per my GodSelf

Although my mind
finds this challenging
it is slowly accepting
my expanded consciousness
with awe and a desire
to play in a whole new way

Looking backward or forward
only presents
a flurry of challenges
by attempting to
understand the past
or predict the future

There is no going back
there is only a
courageous exploration
of the expanded
Presence of Now
in a space which
transcends words

Therefore, you will find me
exploring the expansion
of this Present moment
with a song in my heart
and bells on my toes.

Sweet Contentment of Life

Feeling the sweet
contentment of life
in knowing
that everything
I need and desire
effortlessly
comes to me

Each new moment
presenting itself
free of the old
limited human
expectations
placed upon
people, places
and things

Free of the need
to change things
or manipulate energies
because I know
life is constantly
unfolding
fresh and new.

Expanded Realization

Experiencing expanded realization
seeing things not seen before
hearing in ways not heard before
understanding things not understood before
realizing things not realized before

Our truth is not revealed
until we have been prepared
and made ready for it
providing us peace of mind
to allow these transitions
to flow with ease and grace.

Divine Expansion

Experiencing the breath
of Divine expansion
as I “Let go and let God”

Feeling all my cells humming
with an enhanced vibration
of well~being
basking in serenity
while the world around me
continues to bluster

There’s a sweet warm
self-radiance from within
and my ribs are a bit tender
from the expansion of my heart
as I breath deeply with gratitude
for the ease and grace
of our physical body’s
miraculous alchemy.

gratitude for the art design by Roger Scaglia

Embodying the Truth

I don’t recognize who I was
last year at this time
having released so much of
who I thought I was
while embodying
the truth of who I AM

Everything is different
body, mind, emotions… life
even my Soul has expanded!

Loving Gratitude to my self
for trusting the organic changes
that allow the fullness
of my Divinity
to reside within
this physical body

In the beginning
some of these changes
were difficult and challenging
but that too shifted
once I made the choice
to flow with ease and grace

Who I AM today
is not who I will be tomorrow
for I know this is an eternal
process of expansion
for which I am grateful
because Love and Joy
have no bounds.

Resting in the Void

Rest in the Void
in the space-in-between
betwixt transitions
between what was
and what is yet to come

The “old” has no place
to land anymore
it will dissolve
of its own accord
unless you continue
giving it your attention

Rest assured
be at peace
your Soul awaits
divine timing
until you are
ready and prepared
to take the next step
forward into the new.
