Gift of Grace

Eons ago we all
separated from the One
into multiple aspects
to fully experience
the innumerable facets of life.

Now the circle is complete
the spiral has reversed
opening our hearts
to Love ourselves
back into wholeness
by unconditionally embracing
all of our personal aspects
simultaneously inviting us
into our own Oneness
with All-That-Is.

Before we can fully embrace
Universal Oneness
we need to embody
our personal Divinity
standing sovereign
as our unique God-Self
that has metamorphosed
into more of who we’ve ever
known ourselves to be
though our experiences
here on earth in human form.

This is a gift of Grace
freely given to every human
with an open heart
and the commitment
to stand in their Sovereignty
as a Divine Human.

Existence Without Interpretation

Existence without interpretation
allows all the woes of the world
to dissolve into the ethers
without any effort on my part

because these interpretations
conjured by the mind
are a false perception of reality
meant to keep me safe

but the only true safety
lies with my GodSelf
which has no need for
judgment or interpretations

for my GodSelf recognizes
everything as experience
distilled into divine wisdom
free of the mind’s stories
existence without interpretation.

Remaining Open is Enough

We go through our lives living blindly
according to what someone else has taught us
then one day it’s as if our Divinity flips the switch

We see with new eyes, hear with new ears
a new reality replaces the old
effortlessly with ease and grace.

There’s no need to work so hard at Enlightenment
your willingness to remain fully Open is enough.
the GodSelf within you will take care of the rest.

I Am a Sovereign Being

I Am a Sovereign Being.

As a sovereign being
I realize all my needs are met
by the clarity of my consciousness
from the purity of my GodSelf.

I Am no longer hungry
no longer hungry for
love from outside myself
attention from others
nor acknowledgment of success.

I no longer feel the need
to rescue others
to attempt to heal others
to evangelize
or to save the planet.

I recognize that every human
is a Sovereign being.

By honoring
each one’s unique soul path
and empowering their Sovereignty
I grant everyone their freedom
by no longer enabling victimhood.

For my GodSelf sees no victims
nor need for healing or saving
for our Sovereignty calls forth
infinite harmony amidst life’s changes
and all flows with Divine Well-being.

Labyrinth of Enlightenment

The Labyrinth of Enlightenment
is a sacred soul journey
weaving its way from the edges of
our carefully crafted human persona
toward the heart of our Inner Being.

Just when you think
you’ve attained nirvana
the chaos of transformation spins you
back out to the edge of the circle
for a more expanded view.

It takes courage and trust to begin
edging our way back to the center again
with our newly acquired wisdom
only to be spun out to the edges
for another expanded view.

This divine design
is the Soul’s loving way
of introducing us
to full and complete embodiment
thus there is no error on our part.

Transformation is not comfortable
for the human aspect of ourselves
but when we surrender
all our fears to our Godself
the path can be one of ease and grace

Once you reach the center
allow yourself to rest awhile
to savor the distilled wisdom
from all of your experiences
before journeying back outward.

Trust that the Labyrinth of Enlightenment
will always lead you
to the center of your Inner Being
with a more expanded consciousness
and the newly attained divine wisdom
to engage in the world
as the Embodiment of the Divine.

Expansion of your GodSelf

 

The purpose of this earth experience
has always been to expand your GodSelf
with the joy of life at the root of your experience.

You are meant to create the reality you choose
rather than scuffling around
in other’s realities that were never yours.

Thus, follow your passion
go wherever your heart calls
and create anew for the pure joy of it.

Realization of my GodSelf

Deep in the silence
within my being
a spark of light hovers
radiant and bright
elusive yet real
hidden beyond
the veils of my mind.

Deep in the silence
rests a beingness
free of time and space
free of earthly desires
patiently awaiting
the realization
of who I AM.

Deep in the silence
I find you
every time
I surrender
to the silence
of the omnipotence
of all-that-is.

It is here that I find you
deep in the silence
as the GodSelf
that is me.

Commitment to Self

Honor your Self
by spending time
free of all distractions
for a day, a week
or even a few hours.

Sense the invitation
from the wisdom of your Soul
to fully experience
the expanded consciousness
that awaits you.

Allow your consciousness
to follow your heart
breaking free of
the old illusions
to create anew.

Immerse yourself
in your Soul’s expression
writing, artwork, music,
time away in nature or
wherever your heart calls.

A commitment made
to spend sacred time
with your GodSelf
will yield gifts
beyond your imagination.

When You Pray

When you pray to God. . .
you are actually
praying to your GodSelf.

When you pray to God. . .
you are acknowledged
as one with All-That-Is
All is given
without reserve
but You are the one
who needs to be
open to receive.

Therefore,
When you pray to God. . .
it is through your ability to receive
that you become the Master
of your own Reality.

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.
