Honoring Our Feelings

You have the right to “feel”
any way you choose

Honor what you feel
for feelings are the
expression and guidance
of your Inner Being

Feelings are your
innate life compass

They are not up for review by
your chattering mind
your spouse
your children
your parents
your priest
or anyone else

There is no such thing as
a wrong feeling

It is our judgment and reaction
to our feelings that create
the quagmires of confusion
not the feelings themselves

So judge not and be grateful
for all that you feel

Woe are the ones
who have shut the door
on their feelings
and live bereft of life.

Free of the Constructs of Time

The more present we become
in this moment,
the less real
the extraneous becomes
finally seen as the illusion
we dreamed up
for the experience of it

When we free ourselves
of the constructs of time
timelines collapse
memories and stories
effortlessness dissolve
and the wisdom is distilled
by the soul to carry forth

Unless. . .
we are unwilling to let them go
and allow them to pull us back
into the matrix of the illusion of time.

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.

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.

Now That I am Empty

Now that I am empty
of that which is not mine
having released all
ancestral ties
society’s rules
religious dogma
mental programing
the need to judge

Now that I am empty
how do I choose to be filled?

Do I choose to be filled?

Or do I choose
to allow All-That-Is
to continually
flow through me
enjoying each
and every moment
anew?

Sacred Lover

I whisper to you
as your sacred
and intimate lover
for that is who I AM
the one
who has loved you
into being
from your origin
through every lifetime
every experience
every nuance of life
expanding
your consciousness
your wisdom
your ability
to enjoy life
from eternally
new potentials
for the simple
passion of being.

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.

Joy of the Soul

Doing
for the sake of
purpose
accomplishment
or success
is the goal
of the human mind.

Doing
for the sake of
experience
feeling
or expressing
is the passion
of the Soul.

The Soul
is as
joyful
and passionate
with inaction
as it is with
taking action.

The Soul needs
no acknowledgment
because
its sustenance
is in the pure joy
of experiencing life
with all its subtle nuances
neither more
or less
important
than another.

To the Soul
every experience
and expression
of life
is sublime joy.

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.

All That I Am

All That I Am
continues to expand
it is not a destination
with an end to the journey
there are no goals
nothing to learn
nothing to attain
for consciousness is infinite
constantly expanding
with each and every experience
in the here and now
where All That I Am resides.
