Freedom to BE

It’s not yours
it never was
even if you were taught otherwise
even if you embodied it
even if you have been living it
it’s not yours
it never was

It could only belong
to the false persona
you created to live
as a human
in a world of duality
a world you can walk away from
because it’s was never yours

Step away from
your human persona
step away from
all you thought was yours

Allow your Soul
to distill it into the essence
of Divine Wisdom
free of duality
free of judgment
free of measurement
free of assessment

FREE to live
as the truth of who you are
as the I AM
FREE to dance
to the music of the Divine
FREE to enJOY
the infinite potentials
FREE to create anew
in every moment without bounds
FREE to BE
all that you choose to BE.

Distilling the Wisdom

Much like the caterpillar
you spent the beginning of your life
feeding upon and devouring information
forming a self created ego
until it was time to wrap yourself
in a cocoon of solitude
to distill the wisdom
and recognize your True Self
allowing your ego to dissolve
into the pure essence of God
to unfurl your radiant gossamer wings
and fly to higher realms of Love and Joy.

Reality

The illusion in which we live
is nothing more than
the stories created by our minds
when we let go of the stories
what remains is reality
and that reality
is Love.

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.

Remembrance

After releasing all
of who I thought I was
my persona
my relationships
my job
my home
my lifestyle
my identity
my old existence

I sit here
free of all that was
in the stillness
in the quiet
in that which
I thought was a void

Allowing
the remembrance
of all of
Who I Am
to bubble forth
and create anew

It does not look
like I thought
it would look
for the mind
never knew
Who I AM

It does not feel
like I thought
it would feel
for my emotions
were never the reality
of Who I AM

So what is my reality
what is this new life?

As soon as
I answer those
questions
I am recreating
as I was
as I used to
think myself to be

Instead
I allow reality
to reveal itself
in each
and every moment
in a new life

With a new found
freedom
without the need
to describe
without the need
to identify

For I know
Who I AM
at the core
of my existence
and that is
eternal freedom

Gift of Experience

Experience
every experience
is a gift.

There are no levels
of experience
high or low
good or bad
unless we choose
to judge them as such
and then the experience
becomes a burden
rather than a gift.

We have the opportunity
to accept the gift
of every experience
as a treasure of wisdom
to more fully love ourselves
and open more fully to life.

Time of Separation

Humanity incarnated
into physicality
separating
into a multitude
of diverse aspects
to better know our Self
by experiencing life
to the fullest

After eons of time
we got lost
in the separation
of our profusion
of aspects and personas
with a need to defend
who we thought
ourselves to be

This time of separation
is now drawing to a close
the consciousness of life
via our experiences
has expanded
all of our aspects
refined into radiant facets
unifying into our Oneness

We arise
from the ashes
purified
in our wholeness
enlightened
in our sovereignty
with the wisdom
of the phoenix

We soar
with spread wings
able to see
the expanded view
beyond separation
reveling in our sovereignty
as our radiant GodSelf
congruent with All-That-Is.

Existence Without Interpretation

Existence without interpretation
allows all the woes of the world
to dissolve into the ethers
without any effort on my part

because these interpretations
conjured by the mind
are a false perception of reality
meant to keep me safe

but the only true safety
lies with my GodSelf
which has no need for
judgment or interpretations

for my GodSelf recognizes
everything as experience
distilled into divine wisdom
free of the mind’s stories
existence without interpretation.
