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.

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.

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.

Pleasures of the Soul

What if . . .
we remember the
love
joy
pleasure
and gifts
of every relationship
we have ever experienced

Rather than . . .
holding onto the
sorrow
regrets
bitterness
and pain
of separation
from our original intent?

THIS is how our Soul
views our life
reveling in the pleasure
of every experience
for the pure love of life.

Why not live as the Soul does
savoring the pleasure
of every relationship
every experience
and every nuance of life?

When we live as the Soul does
we realize there is nothing to heal
the earth doesn’t need our healing
humanity doesn’t need our healing
we don’t need healing

All that’s needed is
a change in our perspective
to see as the Soul sees
to experience as the Soul experiences
and to live as the Soul lives
for the pure Love of Life.

Free as a Child

A child is content
to build castles in the sand
knowing they will be washed away
with the next tide,
then returns the following day
to build another
ever more glorious castle.

The wisdom of our own inner child
knows that what it builds today
need not be grasped onto
need not be protected
need not be entombed,
simply lived to the fullest
in this joyous moment.

Ah, to be the child
with our dreams and creations
enjoying them to the fullest
with playful delight
in this present moment
then allowing them to return
to the infinite sea of creation.

Ah, to be the child again
living life
joyously, freely, openly
knowing we are infinite beings.

BEing In Love

Do you remember how you felt
when you were first “in love”?

Happy… giddy… passionate
skipping through the day…
never wanting to be apart…
lifting each other UP…
knowing you can fly.

Be present with this feeling
within your Self
in every moment
totally in LOVE with YOU!!!

The Soul’s Reality

It does not matter
if you dream it
envisioned it
read it in a novel
or live it.

It all becomes
soul experience
when you allow yourself
to feel it deeply enough
to embody it.

The soul does not require
mental validation
nor judges
one experience
against another.

The soul distills
the essence
of each experience
into wisdom
as its reality.

Everything else
dissolves as illusion.

Rest in the Bliss

It’s important to rest awhile
in the bliss of the moment,
rather than rush on past
in search of the next one.

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.
