Facts

Facts are facts
until they’re not.

The world was flat
and now it’s round.

Has the world changed?
Have the facts changed?
Or…. have we changed 
by expanding our perspective?

Something to ponder
next time you put your faith in facts
rather than your own Inner Knowing.

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.

Immeasurable Joy

You can’t measure Joy

As soon as you attempt to do so
you dilute it
by measuring it
against someone
or something else.

Joy has many variations
it can be experienced
as a soft warm glow in your heart
a waltz through a field of fragrant wildflowers
or a passionate explosion of life.

But no matter the experience
Joy is Joy
whole and complete unto itself.

You will not find joy
outside of yourself
you will only find it within you
because. . .

Joy is who you are
as a sacred aspect of your Divinity.

Seed of Passion

If you pull up a plant
by the roots,
the plant dies.

But if you very gently
push the soil away
until you discover the roots . . .

what you will find
is the seed of passion
that birthed the plant
the ardor for life
the vigor to thrive
the joy to blossom
the zeal to bear fruit.

Wisdom
lies in the seed
of the plant
and in the heart
of the child within.

Be gentle
with the seed
for therein lies your
ardor for life
vigor to thrive
joy to blossom
and zeal to bear fruit.

Gift of Emptiness

What I once perceived
as loneliness
is the gift of emptiness.

For here, in the emptiness
the mind has gone quiet
free of its machinations.

It is within this emptiness
there are no boundaries
no need for protection.

It is within this emptiness
that I’m finally able to be
intimate with my human self.

It is within this emptiness
that I’m finally able to be
fully present with my GodSelf.

Here in this emptiness
I finally know and realize
All of Who I Am.

Sovereign Being

A Sovereign being
is an amalgamation
of the purity of All that is you
held within the chalice of your heart
as all the aspects of your GodSelf.

A Sovereign being
is not a patchwork of
repeating other people’s words
following other people’s beliefs
or mimicking other people’s actions.

A Sovereign being
stands tall in their wisdom
no longer searching
outside themselves
for what they know is within.

A Sovereign being
is bright in their radiance
content in their countenance
and at peace with
Who they Are.

Soul Speaks without Words

The Soul speaks without words . . .

why does spirituality
feel the need to explain itself
with so much mental jargon
so many verbal teachings
so many affirmations
so many incantations
so many words
so much noise

that it drowns out the Soul.

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!!

Calling Forth the Soul

When you call forth your Soul
you have also called forth
the eternal Wisdom of the Divine.

The Soul will not be content
to allow you to tuck it away
because it does not fit the persona
you have created for yourself
or the world that surrounds you.

The Wisdom of the Soul
will unerringly filter into your life
smoothing your path with ease and grace
or it will create havoc with your persona
who is unwilling to let go.

Your Soul will disrupt you
’til you embrace it’s divine wisdom
or haunt you until your death.
