Highest Order of Service

Putting your Self first
is NOT selfish
It is the “Highest Order of Service”
to humanity and the planet

How can you
be of assistance to others
when your own energy
is discordant?

By attending to your self first
you ensure the energy you radiate
from within you
is pure Love and Compassion

BEing the Master
of your own energy
is the Highest Order of Service
and thus the Highest Good for All.

Gifts of Expanded Consciousness

 

The more my consciousness expands
in my innate desire
to know all of who I Am
the more aware I become

The more sensitive I feel
as my skin of protection dissolves
feeling raw and exposed
vulnerable and unsafe

My human self calls out
to shrink back
behind the walls of protection
that no longer exist

While my soul is savoring
newly discovered delights
from my pallet of passion
which has felt void for far too long

It’s a challenge to open so fully
to feel so hypersensitive
bombarded by so much
inconsequential energy and noise

Overwhelmed by it all
we have come to forget
that expanded consciousness
comes with it’s own innate gift

Consciousness gifts us
with the ability to filter out
the noise and distractions
the discomforts and sensitivities

By simply choosing
my own point of consciousness
in every given moment
I Am free and secure

No longer living
in a world void of life
my consciousness offers
sensual delights

The old facades fade away
juicy centers are exposed
my passion runs deep
and my joy bubbles forth

’Tis the gift of expanded consciousness
that returns me to the fullness of life
and the knowing of
Who I Am.

Flow of Life

The flow of life is
simple and easy
gracious and welcoming
effortless and without angst

It doesn’t require
any efforting
or energy manipulation
only a conscious choice
and a true desire
to live in this flow
rather than our old
habitual patterns

It feels so obvious
when a former pattern
slips back in
because it feels
SO out of alignment
with who we
now know
ourselves to be

A simple refocusing
is all it takes
to return to the
wondrous adventure
of consciously
navigating life
as the embodiment
of the I AM
in this physical body

Oh the joy
of living in the
open ended “YES”
in answer to
the eternal offerings
of the Universe!

All is Well

I Am the creator
of my own reality

It is not up to me to create
anyone else’s reality

For how could I?
How can I know
what another’s
soul path is

How can I know
what experiences
they are calling in
for themselves

My attempts to
change their lives
only interferes with
their own soul path

The world does not
need me to fix it
for the world is
a collective creation

It is through each person
that humanity is learning
love and compassion
for the earth and each other

It is not up to me to
interfere in what is not mine
only to honor each person
and their soul’s path

It is up to me to
know and embody
the truth that
All Is Well

The only thing
I need do is radiate
the Love and Compassion
that is innately mine

Therewith, each person
has a new example
for a new way of being
and the world can find
a new balance within
the knowing that
All Is Well.

Seduction of Distractions

The constant seduction
of worldly distractions
cluttering my mind
pulling my attention
diverting my energy
to that which is life depleting
rather than life giving

It takes a strong commitment
with discipline and practice
to command focus
long enough to stabilize
in the present moment
to remain centered
in my soul’s wisdom
to chose wisely

Continuous conscious choice
is required to employ
Self realization
Self trust
Self patience
often enough and long enough
to anchor into the true Presence
of Who I Am
where there are no distractions
only the eternal flow
of life giving Source.

Always Here

It is here
my joy and
my passion

It is always here

Even when
it feels like
the world
around me
has gone
asunder

Even when
it is buried
beneath
old memories
that threaten
to diminish it

Even when
others
attempt to
pull me
into their
personal dramas

It is always here

With one deep breath
one gentle exhalation
I sync into
the depth of me
where my
Joy and Passion
continue to
effortlessly
bubble forth
with the simple
recognition
of Who I AM.

Diligence

Everything you think
everything you read
everything you experience
has already been changed
by the mere act of
your thinking, reading
or experiencing it.

This is a simple fact
of quantum physics.

Enlightenment proliferates
via our diligence
in being fully Present
in the here and now
rather than carrying
anything from the past
which no longer exists
in this present moment.

Master Creators are
those who are always
in the present moment
creating anew.

Integrity

Once you awaken
to the Divinity
of who you know
your Self to be
your Inner Being
is calling
every thought
word and deed
into integrity
with the wisdom
of your GodSelf.

Vigilance

Be Vigilant
remain Super-Conscious
don’t go back to life as usual
for it doesn’t exist anymore

Every time things shift
it’s natural for the psyche
to want to return
to what it knows
where it feels safe

But we all know
our true safety
and Well-Being
lies within the heart
of the Divine

When the old comes
knocking at our door
a shift in focus
is all it takes
to allow it to pass
without participating
in the drama

Oh my BeLoveds,
we’re stepping into a New World
we’ve flung the gateway
wide open and it bids us Welcome.

Lost in Thought

Lost in thought
about things to do
what’s been done
what could have been done

These are a tiring
waste of energy
diminishing peacefulness
and clouding our clarity

Every time you become
lost in thought
it means exactly that
you are lost!

To find your Self
allow your mind
to become quiet
utterly tranquil

In the quiet depths
of every being
there is a stillness
a deep inner peace
a voice of inner wisdom
guiding your life
in every precious moment.
