Spiritual Quest

At some point we realize
all spiritual teachings
are speaking to the mind
the human mind
that is constantly
seeking self validation.

When it fails to find it
in the outer world
it thinks it can find it in spirituality,
but life is in constant flux
thus the answers and the questions
are ever changing and evolving.

The human mind
has no concept of spirituality.

For spirituality
can only be experienced
as the purity of consciousness
where all the answers lie
in the wisdom of the moment
each moment with its own wisdom.

Therefore the spiritual quest
comes to naught
until finally battle weary
we set ourselves free of the quest
and lay down the gauntlet
of spirituality

By realizing . . .
in the ever flowing
change of life
the questions change
the answers change
and we evolve

What is eternal
is the purity of Wisdom
effortlessly gleaned
from within our Divinity
ever present
in each and every moment.

Herein we find ourselves
at Peace.

Focus

When we focus on a more expanded reality,
that which has been unseen
becomes seen.

Anything that no longer resonates with it
effortlessly dissolves
if we allow it to do so.

So… where do you choose to place your focus?

Separation Consciousness

As long as we’re discussing the balancing
of the feminine and the masculine
we’re living in duality
and separation consciousness.

Isn’t it time to go beyond
this limiting concept
of dividing things out
into separate parcels?

Isn’t it time to go beyond
the mind’s linear concepts
of feminine or masculine
heart or mind
left brain or right brain
right or wrong?

Isn’t it time to
experience life as it presents itself
free of separation
free of judgment?

For all of life is interwoven
as a pure expression of the Divine.

Isn’t it time to
fully live our Divinity?

Book of the Soul

I closed the book of “Spirituality”
there is nothing more for me to read
nor anything more to learn.

I closed the book on the “New Age”
although it was new
I have moved beyond that now.

I closed the book of “Witchcraft”
there are no more spells for me to conjure
no more brews for me to stir.

I closed the book of “Healing”
for I know myself as whole and complete
as a pure expression of my GodSelf.

I closed the book of “Alchemy”
for I have already been transformed
from carbon into crystalline.

I honor these books now set aside
for they have guided me
to awaken to all of Who I Am.

I now delight in
the “Book of my Soul”
written by my own hand.

The “Book of my Soul”
filled with the Wisdom
distilled from all the experiences
I have lived as a human
and. . .
the essence of All of Who I Am
as a sovereign being who continues
to expand my consciousness.

It is with the “Book of my Soul”
tucked into the pocket of my heart
that I now live life with ease and grace
creating life anew with the joyfulness of a child.

Let there be Light

In the midst of the chaos…
The Creator said, “Let there be Light.”

As humanity is in the midst of it’s own chaos,
it’s time for us to say, “Let there be Light.”

That we may we see
with expanded Consciousness
and Create Anew.

Soul Speaks without Words

The Soul speaks without words . . .

why does spirituality
feel the need to explain itself
with so much mental jargon
so many verbal teachings
so many affirmations
so many incantations
so many words
so much noise

that it drowns out the Soul.

Freeing the Shadows

My beautiful human
who has finally discovered
the light within
that has always been.

Why do you continue
to search out your shadows
to expose them
to heal the wounds?

Do you not realize
there are only shadows
when you live by the light
that shines from outside you?

There are no shadows
from the Light within
there are no shadows
within the Divine.

Now that you have
unveiled the Light within
isn’t it time to live again
to live fully again?

The Divine is excited
to be shining its Light
through your humanness
dispelling all shadows.

The Divine is excited
to enliven your life
to live, to love
and to play as a human.

The Divine is excited
to live the joy of life!

It’s time human
it’s time to fully live!!

Sovereignty

A sovereign being
is fully conscious
as the creator of their own reality.

A sovereign being
is victim to no one
is victim to nothing.

A sovereign being
courageously steps away
from all we’ve ever known.

A sovereign being
does not need to control
nor stand in their power.

A sovereign being
is the unity of All That Is
without the need for boundaries.

A sovereign being
is soft and yielding
flowing organically with life.

A sovereign being
is in constant expansion
with heart open wide.

It is as sovereign beings
that we come together
in conscious commUnity.

Otherwise we continue to
re-create that which has always been
rather than creating anew.

Therefore,
it is not the world that needs changing
it is the realization of our Sovereignty
that will change the world.

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.

Calling Forth the Soul

When you call forth your Soul
you have also called forth
the eternal Wisdom of the Divine.

The Soul will not be content
to allow you to tuck it away
because it does not fit the persona
you have created for yourself
or the world that surrounds you.

The Wisdom of the Soul
will unerringly filter into your life
smoothing your path with ease and grace
or it will create havoc with your persona
who is unwilling to let go.

Your Soul will disrupt you
’til you embrace it’s divine wisdom
or haunt you until your death.
