Going Beyond Intentions

Whenever I set an intention
it is the mind
that is drawn upon
scanning what has been
to create something better.

The mind immediately
goes into action
spending its time
weighing the old
against the new

battling it all out
in fear of trying
something new
in fear of losing
itself and what it knows.

Therefore. . .
Instead of intending
and engaging the mind
I take a deep breath
sink deeply
into my GodSelf

and I ask. . .

Show me
more of who I am
show me the magic
show me all
I have yet to discover

to BE
free of
the mind’s limitations
the old programs
and society’s constructs

to go beyond
that which
I have ever known
into the depth of myself
to excite my passion.

I do not know
what this looks like
for how could I
when it is beyond
the mind’s imagination.

However, I do know
what it feels like
it feels like
the purity of my GodSelf
it feels like Home.

Transformation of Anger

Someone pulled the pin on a grenade of visceral anger
that’s been unconsciously buried deep within me
from a long time ago.

My first reaction was toward the one who incited this anger
the one who tread upon my heart, then turned the other cheek
a story from my past.

As I sat with this anger,
allowing it to bubble and churn
allowing it to effortlessly flow out of me
without allowing it to fester, without the need to process,
I realized I am the one I have been angry with all these years
for taking it all on, for shrinking into unworthiness
for playing the victim, for groveling for acceptance
allowing someone else to control my life
for a few tidbits of superficial love.

In that moment of realization
my raging anger was spontaneously transformed
by a flood of loving compassion
for the part of me who never felt accepted
for she who never felt seen for who she truly is
for the one that was afraid to stand up for herself
for fear of being rejected
for the one who did not recognize herself
as the precious being that she is.

In that moment of consciousness
the grenade of anger exploded into a burst of love
in which I now stand strong as a sovereign being
with my head held high with an open radiant heart.

To the one who unknowingly pulled the pin on my grenade
I surround you in love and compassion
for I know you were lashing out in response
unaware of the pain and anger buried deep within you.

I pray that each one of us is able to consciously awaken
to the love that is always nestled side by side
in compassion for the anger that’s been buried within us
and may we all stand tall with open radiant hearts.

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.

Gift of Emptiness

What I once perceived
as loneliness
is the gift of emptiness.

For here, in the emptiness
there are no boundaries
no need for protection.

It is within this emptiness
that I’m finally able to be
fully present with my GodSelf.

It is within this emptiness
that I’m finally able to be
intimate with my human self.

It is within this emptiness
that my passion lay dormant
awaiting my realization.

Here in this emptiness
I finally know and experience
All of Who I Am.

Blank Canvas

Life began as is a blank canvas.

There is no reality
except that which we make real
with our “image-in-ation”
via personal or group consciousness.

That begs me to question:
“How much of what I’ve always considered to be reality
has been unconsciously handed down to me?”

There is no “one” reality.

What is real for me,
may not be real for you.
I get to choose my reality
and you get to choose yours.

This awareness expands reality
to new levels of consciousness
and
infinite potentials of manifestation.

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?

Confusion vs Clarity

I love CLARITY!!

And I also appreciate confusion
for confusion means
I’m sitting on the brink
of an expansion of consciousness.

With every new expansion,
my mind initially foibles around
in a temporary state of confusion
trying to make sense of the new.

But once everything is aligned
a new clarity ensues
a new way of being is revealed
and life becomes more exhilarating.

There is no need to hurry
or push through the confusion
because the more we honor it
the more tidbits of clarity we receive.

And what a JOY that is!!!

When I love the confusion
as much as I love clarity
I experience expansion
within expansion
within expansion.

Thus my consciousness
is in constant expansion
in constant bloom.

Deep in the Silence

Deep in the Silence…
in the ever-expanding consciousness
allowing feelings to lead the way
beyond the human mind
visions proliferate
dancing with the symphonies of the heart
in multidimensional awareness
timelines merging
clarity, simplicity, purity,
sweet Blissings
in the Knowing of Who I Am
and Who I Am Becoming
for creation is infinite
continually creating anew.

Each Moment, it’s own Unique Experience

When you allow
every moment
to be it’s own unique experience
the mind lets go of the past
and opens to infinite potentials.

When you allow
every moment
to be it’s own unique experience
the old stories dissolve
and the heart opens more fully.

When you allow
every moment
to be it’s own unique experience
the beauty of life reveals itself
in new and vibrant ways.

When you allow
every moment
to be it’s own unique experience
you are in the flow of grace
with all that Source has to offer.

When you allow
every moment
to be it’s own unique experience
you realize yourself as Divine
at one with All That Is.
