You are Extraordinary

When you are fully present
everything you see
is extraordinary,
everything you touch
is extraordinary,
everything you taste
is extraordinary.
YOU are extraordinary.

Why would you spend
even one iota of your attention
anywhere other than the fullness of
this extraordinary moment
flowing from
this extraordinary moment
to the next with the natural
ease and grace of the Divine.

Relax into Peace

We run hither and thither
looking for peace
we rearrange our lives
we seek spirituality
we hide from the world
all in search of peace

But peace
is always present
deep within
the core of our heart
unable to be dislodged
awaiting our awareness

Take a moment
take a deep breath
and relax into peace
allowing everything
to settle into
its own perfection.

Savoring Sweet Contentment

I awoke from
a dreamless sleep
cushioned on
a cloud of peace
in the silence
in the stillness
of sweet contentment

When the mind
began to search
for something more
I heard my Soul whisper . . .

Relax dear mind
simply relax
and savor this
sweet contentment

How is it that you
do not consider
this enough?

How is it that you
continually create
all the folderol
in a constant search
for the peace
and sweet contentment
that is always present
within the stillness
of this moment?

For it is from within
this sweet contentment
that you realize
your Self
as more than enough
and new potentials
effortlessly
reveal themselves
with ease and grace.

Assessment

When we assess
a problem that needs fixing
we’re locking ourselves
into the problem

When we diagnose
an emotional or medical condition
we’re locking ourselves
into the symptoms

When we attempt to
push through barriers
we’re locking ourselves
within the limitations

When we trust and allow
our own Divinity
every new moment
presents an infinite number
of new potentials
free of diagnosis
free of assessment
free of pushing
all in divine order
all with ease and grace.

Are you open
receive them?

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.

Take a Breath

 

When you stop and take a breath
can you feel all those parts of you
that have scattered with the wind
to attempt to manage a life that
no longer needs management

When you stop and take a breath
can you feel all those parts of you
returning home to settle
into the core of your heart
in the consummation of sovereignty

When you stop and take a breath
can you feel all those parts of you
communing with your soul
distilling the wisdom
from all your prior experiences

When you stop and take a breath
can you be grateful
for the realization
of the totality of who
you know your Self to Be.

Courageous Exploration

Beyond words
floating in and out
of cohesive consciousness
living in a parallel world
a new playground
creating in ways
our mind has yet
to comprehend

The old world no longer
registers with me
including most of the
affirmations and teachings
which have graciously
brought us to this point

I am living in the unknown
per my mind
and the fully Known
per my GodSelf

Although my mind
finds this challenging
it is slowly accepting
my expanded consciousness
with awe and a desire
to play in a whole new way

Looking backward or forward
only presents
a flurry of challenges
by attempting to
understand the past
or predict the future

There is no going back
there is only a
courageous exploration
of the expanded
Presence of Now
in a space which
transcends words

Therefore, you will find me
exploring the expansion
of this Present moment
with a song in my heart
and bells on my toes.

Sweet Contentment of Life

Feeling the sweet
contentment of life
in knowing
that everything
I need and desire
effortlessly
comes to me

Each new moment
presenting itself
free of the old
limited human
expectations
placed upon
people, places
and things

Free of the need
to change things
or manipulate energies
because I know
life is constantly
unfolding
fresh and new.

Present in the Now

There is much to look forward to
but don’t let the depth and richness
of THIS moment pass you by

For without being fully present
the future will only become
an unconscious repeat
of the superficiality of the past

Our growth and expansion
reside in our ability to be
w-holy present in the infinite now.

Restoration

So many lives
we have lived
within this lifetime

So many faces
we have presented
to the world

So many personas
we have acted out
in search of ourselves

Finally stepping away
from the emptiness
of all that was

Allowing it all
to effortlessly
crumble around us

Until all that remains
is the foundation
and the restoration
of our God Self.
