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
there are no boundaries
no need for protection.

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

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

It is within this emptiness
that my passion lay dormant
awaiting my realization.

Here in this emptiness
I finally know and experience
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.

Feelings vs Emotions

The more expanded our awareness becomes,
the more sensitive we become
to our physical environment
to other people
to our emotional reactions
to everything!

Along with this awareness we eventually realize
it is not necessary to run external energies
through our physical bodies
nor react emotionally to them.

Feelings differ from emotions ~
Feelings are our heart messengers
Emotions are the mental interpretation of them.

I ask you,
Do your feelings really need an intellectual interpretation?
Or can you simply follow the guidance of your heart,
beyond intellect, beyond explanation, and beyond words?

My Reality

I love that we can be
anywhere we choose
and sensually enjoy
every morsel of life
from right here
in this moment.

There are worlds
upon worlds
waiting
to be explored
from within
our own imagination.

One is no more real
then the other.
All are as real
and sensual
as we choose
to make them.

These realities
are our new creations
just as we choose them to be!!

That Deep Place Within

Get in touch with that deep place within
that place that’s been
neglected due to distractions
that place that’s been
abandoned in response to others
that place that’s been
restless with desire
that place that’s been
calling out for your attention.

Get in touch with that deep place within
that place that’s
overflowing with Love
that place that’s
brimming with Creativity
that place that’s
shimmering with Magic
that place that’s
bubbling with Joy.

Get in touch with that deep place within
and feed it . . .
