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.

Lighten Up

Making a serious commitment
to your Self above all else
is crucial to your Embodied Enlightenment.

However,
being too serious about the process
will entangle you
in the quagmire of the mind
that creates its own chaos.

Once you put a little giggle
in your walk you’ll be surprised
how fun Enlightenment can be!!!

Remaining Open is Enough

We go through our lives living blindly
according to what someone else has taught us
then one day it’s as if our Divinity flips the switch

We see with new eyes, hear with new ears
a new reality replaces the old
effortlessly with ease and grace.

There’s no need to work so hard at Enlightenment
your willingness to remain fully Open is enough.
the GodSelf within you will take care of the rest.

Labyrinth of Enlightenment

The Labyrinth of Enlightenment
is a sacred soul journey
weaving its way from the edges of
our carefully crafted human persona
toward the heart of our Inner Being.

Just when you think
you’ve attained nirvana
the chaos of transformation spins you
back out to the edge of the circle
for a more expanded view.

It takes courage and trust to begin
edging our way back to the center again
with our newly acquired wisdom
only to be spun out to the edges
for another expanded view.

This divine design
is the Soul’s loving way
of introducing us
to full and complete embodiment
thus there is no error on our part.

Transformation is not comfortable
for the human aspect of ourselves
but when we surrender
all our fears to our Godself
the path can be one of ease and grace

Once you reach the center
allow yourself to rest awhile
to savor the distilled wisdom
from all of your experiences
before journeying back outward.

Trust that the Labyrinth of Enlightenment
will always lead you
to the center of your Inner Being
with a more expanded consciousness
and the newly attained divine wisdom
to engage in the world
as the Embodiment of the Divine.

The Doorway to Magick

Deep in the forest
the foot path narrows
until it’s barely seen
just wide enough
for the feet of the Fae
to duck beneath the fronds.

’Tis here the wind ripples
and the babbling spring sings
’tis here the magick abounds
with nary a whisper
the veils draw nigh
protecting the realm of the Fae.

Yet hidden betwixt
the dimensional doorways
there is another entrance
for all those awakened
to the truth of magick
and born of Faerie blood.

’Tis easier than one might think
to slip between the veils
and play in the realm of Fae
all it takes is an open mind
and the remembrance
of childish delight.

The invitation is always open
’tis up to you to accept it
a pot of tea always awaits you
served up in acorn cups
with stardust biscuits on emerald leaves
and a dollop of lavender jam.

Humans have become so overly busy
with nary a thought of the Fae
yet the doorway remains
with the welcome mat rolled out
requesting to lay down our packs
and lighten the load on our mind.

Why would we do that?
you might ask.
The answer is quite simple,
the Fae hold the magick
since the beginning of time
and are elated to share it.

Magick is not lost to us
it’s been held in safekeeping
until humans are ready to wield it
from the depth of our love
and the song in our hearts
as nature’s new creators.

So, listen my friends
to the giggles on the wind
and follow your path of joy
for here you will find
the doorway to magick
and a life of infinite joy.

Realization of my GodSelf

Deep in the silence
within my being
a spark of light hovers
radiant and bright
elusive yet real
hidden beyond
the veils of my mind.

Deep in the silence
rests a beingness
free of time and space
free of earthly desires
patiently awaiting
the realization
of who I AM.

Deep in the silence
I find you
every time
I surrender
to the silence
of the omnipotence
of all-that-is.

It is here that I find you
deep in the silence
as the GodSelf
that is me.

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.

Purity of Wisdom

There is a library
of infinite Wisdom
residing within you.

It is your Soul
that has gathered
these tomes of wisdom
gleaned from lifetimes
of human experience.

Wisdom in its purity
free of judgment
free of the stories
free of timelines
free of the human drama.

This is your
sovereign Wisdom
not something handed down
from the stars
or the gods above.

Be still, go within
immerse yourself
in the pure Wisdom
that is always available
and in service to you.

Open to the Unknown

Are you seeing
what you have always seen
without questioning it?

Are you seeing
what is being projected at you
by the media?

Are you only seeing
what other people
are talking about?

Or . . .

Are your eyes wide open
to see what others
are afraid to see?

Is your heart wide open
to consciously place your attention
on that which pleases you?

Is your mind wide open
to explore the unknown
without restraint?

Are you open
to see, feel and enjoy
the previously unknown?

Ennobling our Humanness

With every experience
of expanded consciousness
there is a releasing
of what our mind
thought was real.

Our mind was never wrong
it has simply been functioning
per the programing
that’s been taught
over eons of time.

The mind is now
in the throes of transitioning
beyond the old constricted beliefs
that have brought us to this point
in our evolution.

What we are experiencing now
is an ennobling
and an exultation
of both the mind
and our physical body.

Indeed we often feel threatened
when the mind has gone fuzzy
free of its old way of thinking
not yet comfortable
with the new.

Compassion is the great healer
compassion for the mind
compassion for the body
and an honoring of our courage
to take such a bold step.

Remember Beloveds
you have done nothing wrong
you are simply experiencing
the ennobling and exultation
of your humanness
with expanded consciousness.
