Free of Identity

 

You have chosen 
your human roles
playing them out
on this illustrious stage of life.

Sometimes you are. . .
parent
husband or wife
teacher
student
employee
political activist
caretaker
artisan
musician
writer
spiritual seeker
or a multitude of many other roles.

It’s important to remember
they are simply roles being played out
until you tire of them
and choose a different role.

It’s not until you
drop all the roleplaying
and be without
the need for an identity
that energy can be in service to you.

Otherwise energy
is being manipulated
by your identity
and the role
you have chosen to play.

It is the non-person
who is without
the need for an identity
that is free to allow all energy
to be in service to you.

And then, voila!
You are FREE
all energy is in service to you
which in turn allows you
to be FREELY in service to others
without any role playing.

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.

Your Wings Await You

Your wings have always been here
safely tucked behind your heart
along with all your dreams
and all your desires

patiently waiting
until you were ready
to go beyond
all that you have been taught

patiently waiting
until you felt safe enough
in the trusting
of your GodSelf

patiently waiting
until you loved and honored
all of who you are
as a sovereign being.

patiently waiting
until you were bold enough
to leave the old world behind
and take the leap.

Where you shall fly and where you shall land
I can not tell you . . .

For each flight
is new unto itself
just as each moment
is new unto itself
just as you
become new unto your self
in each and every moment
once you spread your wings
soaring
dreaming
expanding
enjoying
delighting
in All That Is.

Beyond Intent

By setting an intention
the mind is immediately
drawn into action
scanning against all that has been
rather than drawing
upon infinite potentials.

Therefore. . .
Instead of setting an intent
and engaging the mind
I take a deep breath
and sink deeply
into my GodSelf
asking . . .

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 to create
via 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.

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?

The Freedom of Forgiveness

Forgiveness is the ultimate act of letting go
freeing ourselves from the endless cycles
of judgment, victim-hood, blame, shame, and guilt.

Forgiveness isn’t directed toward another
It’s our own expectations, not someone one else’s,
that set us up for the fall.

Therefore,
Forgiveness is a precious gift to one’s self
because for-giving is the giving forth of Love.
Once we truly love ourselves
all judgment and blame dissolves
and compassion becomes our natural way of life.

Freeing the Shadows

My beautiful human
who has finally discovered
the light within
that has always been.

Why do you continue
to search out your shadows
to expose them
to heal the wounds?

Do you not realize
there are only shadows
when you live by the light
that shines from outside you?

There are no shadows
from the Light within
there are no shadows
within the Divine.

Now that you have
unveiled the Light within
isn’t it time to live again
to live fully again?

The Divine is excited
to be shining its Light
through your humanness
dispelling all shadows.

The Divine is excited
to enliven your life
to live, to love
and to play as a human.

The Divine is excited
to live the joy of life!

It’s time human
it’s time to fully live!!

I Create my Reality

Sweet Innocence
Scent of Beauty
Wings of Freedom
This is my stance as Creator.

Without imposition
nor the chaos of transition
I am free to create
from pure Divinity.

Beyond the human mind
beyond past experience
beyond time space
beyond what’s ever been before.

I Am a universal being
expanding consciousness
with the wonderment of a child
and the heart of a human.

I Create my Reality . . .
