The Spiritual Journey

The spiritual journey
is one of awakening
to the totality
of Who We Are
as divinely human
sovereign beings
with the gift of
experiencing
a physical world

A sovereign being
faces life’s challenges
from their own inner wisdom

A sovereign being
is not victim to anything
outside themselves

A sovereign being
is no longer embroiled
in the collective consciousness

A sovereign being
is free of the matrix
of the human mind

A sovereign being
continues to expand
their own consciousness

Bliss and nirvana
are not the goals
of spiritual awakening
these are human
perceptions
conceived by the mind

The spiritual journey
has no expectations
has no goals
it is an ever expanding
experience of life
as a sovereign being.

New Unfolding

There is new unfolding
of the petals of your heart
as a sovereign being
free of antiquity
free of ancestral karma
free of prior relationships
free of time and space
free to be
free to expand
free to express
as a newly born
being of Divinity.

End of the Spiritual Journey

You reach a point
where your spiritual journey
comes to an end
not because you
have reached the destination
but because your realize
there never was a destination

It’s always been
about living life
to the fullest
free of duality
free of separation
open and welcoming
to all that life has to offer

Life that is not exclusive
to your definition
of spirituality
but the realization
that Spirit is alive
in the totally of
All That is.

Drifting

Allowing myself to drift
beyond the mind
allowing all
of who I thought
myself to be
to be pulled apart
into the nothingness
to die
to who I thought
my self to be

Drifting
in the primordial soup
of creation
until. . .

bits and pieces
of my soul wisdom
are drawn together
into a new
dance of creation
with new etudes
of music
wafting in the air
beyond the qualia
of the mind

dissolving
creating
dissolving
creating anew
in each
and every moment.

Grounding

With each deep breath
I ground more fully
into my physical body
realizing the totality
of who I Am
as the amalgamation
of body and soul.

Physical Thriving

 

My body is not the same one
with which I went to sleep
I have awakened ‘
to thriving new cells

For there is a constant
natural procreation
pulsing throughout all of life
including my physical body

My lack of trust
in the innate intelligence
of my body is its
only impediment

For my body delights
in its natural evolution
to live a healthy life
and thrive in joy.

What is Truth

What is Truth?
It’s very simple
the truth lives within you.

No matter
what you see
what you read
what you’re told
or by whom
know that the truth
lives within you.

The truth
will always
expand you
empower you.

The truth
will never attempt
to diminish
or control you.

Only you
can know your truth
and the truth
will always
set you free.

Removing the Mask

You can drape it with silk
and encrust it with jewels
but sooner or later
you realize
your mask
has served it’s purpose
and it’s time
to lovingly remove it
and set it aside
to experience and embrace
the Beloved Self
who you have always been
and have yet to become.

Freedom

I awoke this morning
filled with glee
all-that-is
has enveloped me
with places to go
beings to see
no holding me back
I’ve got to be free.

My Inner Sanctum

My Inner Sanctum
is the Holy of Holies
the place of honoring
the purity of
all of Who I Am

My inner Sanctum
retains all the Wisdom
my Soul has distilled
from all my experiences
through all my lifetimes
reflecting it
into my outer world

My Inner Sanctum
has no room
for religious texts
teachings from gurus
stories of old
nor judgment
from self or others

My Inner Sanctum
is my sovereign
place of wisdom
with the answers
to all my questions

When I live and respond
from within my Inner Sanctum
I am at Peace and
I Am Free.
