Celebrate Being Human

 

Over many lifetimes
I have tasted
and
I have sampled
every experience
on the menu of life.

Until I’ve tasted it all
the good
the bad
and the tasteless
for how could I know life
unless I had sampled it all.

Sometimes
it was an entire life experience
sometimes
it was only a nibble
and sometimes
I savored every nuance.

No particular experience
was more successful
than another
simply different
in its texture
and its flavor.

Now that I’ve sampled
the entire menu of life as a human. . .

This is the lifetime
in which I get to choose
all my favorites
all the delicacies
and all the sweetness
that life has to offer.

Plus…. my personal chef
my GodSelf
is busy creating
a whole new menu
from all the wisdom
and new ingredients
discovered along the way.

Thus,
we have set a new table
with golden plates
and crystal chalices
under skies aglitter
with the stars from which
we traveled so long ago
to celebrate
the Joy and Beauty
of being HUman.

Resting in the Flow of Change

The days of needing
to know it all
or needing to be right
are long gone.

Life is in constant flux
therefore if what I know today
does not change tomorrow
there is no growth or expansion.

I rest in the flow of change
allowing what I knew yesterday
to fade away without judging it
as right or wrong.

And I welcome
that which was unknown yesterday
to be my new playground
each and every day anew.

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.

Serenity of Source

Life may seem in turmoil
as it shifts and shimmies
continually evolving
from the old into the new.

That which you perceive
as maelstrom in life
is simply the decay of the old
as the new sprouts forth.

At the very core
beneath what you
perceive as chaos
lies the Serenity of Well-being.

For, Source only knows
the perfection of life
the essence of well-being
and the joy of creation.

When we expand our consciousness
beyond our human perspective
experiencing life
as Source experiences life

Herein lies our innate serenity
our sense of well-being
our radiant health
our infinite flow of abundance.

Perceiving as Source
life takes on a whole new hue
free of worry and judgment
filled with joy and delight.

See with the eyes of Source
hear with the ears of Source
feel with the heart of Source
Be Source.

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.

Live your Joy

The easiest way to uplift the world
is to live your Joy!

You may think it sacrilegious
to live your joy
when so many are suffering
but are they benefiting
by your woebegone attitude?

Lift yourself up
allow your light to shine
be the Joy of Life
which is the medicine
being called forth for healing.

Be the Joy
and watch the whole world
transform in the wake of your Joy!!

Joy is my Touchstone

JOY is the internal touchstone of my life
not something I attain
Joy is Who I Am
just as Love is Who I Am
and Peace is Who I Am.

Joy is also the elixir of life
that rejuvenates my physical body
allowing me to continue thriving
rather than declining with age
as we have been so erroneously
indoctrinated by social patterning.

The body only wears out
when we work so hard
to manipulate and overcome
perceived adversity
rather than living with
the natural flow of life
as our authentic Self.

Therefore, JOY will always be my touchstone.

Transcending our Thinking

There is no turning back
once we open ourselves
to living in the “unknown.

Sometimes, my human mind
feels like it’s courting chaos
attempting to put it all
in familiar linear order
but my Spirit is soaring!!!

Indeed, my Spirit does KNOW,
in moment to moment revelations,
No wonder the mind feels threatened
with new potentials opening faster
than the mind can keep up.

We simply need to transcend
our old way of thinking
wrap our arms around ALL of life
the known and the unknown,
the mind and the spirit.

Herein lies our Peace,
our childlike wonderment
and our impetus to Thrive.

Pleasurable Desires

As Embodied Master Creators
we have the sacred ability
to direct energy
for our pleasurable desires.

Although energy
can be directed for our needs,
our needs are organically being met
by our self sustaining divinity.

All of creation
is in constant evolution
flowing with the harmonic
expansion of energy.

Energy flows with ease and grace
all resistance is caused
by our attempts to control or manipulate
energy, people and things.

Therefore,
does it not make sense
to align with our own divinity
allowing it’s infinite intelligence
to sustain our needs
while spending our time
fostering our joyful desires.

Eternal Expansion

Every time I expand my consciousness
I realize more of my GodSelf
as a result God also expands.

Thus, I Am experiencing
an eternal spiral of infinite expansion
and continual ascension.

Ascension has no crown of achievement
it is not something to attain
ascension is an ongoing process.

I Am constantly expanding
I Am constantly ascending.
