Happy and Content

 

In this moment
I am happy and content
it matters not
what happened
in the moments
that have passed
or the moments
that are yet to come

For this moment
I am happy and content
and I allow this moment
to morph into
another moment
of happiness
and contentment

Herein lies
the potential for
a whole lifetime
sublime Joy.

Joyful Child

One day you do
what everyone has told you to do
you grow up

And then you realize
it was all a sham
to conform
to a society
that has lost touch
with the reality of life

It’s the magic
and innocence
of the joyful child
that fosters
and effortlessly
carries us through life.

Freedom to BE

It’s not yours
it never was
even if you were taught otherwise
even if you embodied it
even if you have been living it
it’s not yours
it never was

It could only belong
to the false persona
you created to live
as a human
in a world of duality
a world you can walk away from
because it’s was never yours

Step away from
your human persona
step away from
all you thought was yours

Allow your Soul
to distill it into the essence
of Divine Wisdom
free of duality
free of judgment
free of measurement
free of assessment

FREE to live
as the truth of who you are
as the I AM
FREE to dance
to the music of the Divine
FREE to enJOY
the infinite potentials
FREE to create anew
in every moment without bounds
FREE to BE
all that you choose to BE.

Creating A New World

The world is not mine to fix
I was born to create a new world
in each and every moment

We do not need to heal others
we do not need to change others
we do not need to fix the world

It is for us to show the world
it has never been broken
it is simply creating anew

The perfection of this moment
is what carries us
into the perfection
of the next moment
and the next. . .

and thus life
births anew
in eternal perfection

The world is not ours to fix
we were born to create anew
from the elements of Love and Joy.

Distilling the Wisdom

Much like the caterpillar
you spent the beginning of your life
feeding upon and devouring information
forming a self created ego
until it was time to wrap yourself
in a cocoon of solitude
to distill the wisdom
and recognize your True Self
allowing your ego to dissolve
into the pure essence of God
to unfurl your radiant gossamer wings
and fly to higher realms of Love and Joy.

Secret of Life

The primordial
secret of life
is the joy of existence
once realized
everything else
becomes
superfluous.

In the Depth of Your Being

You have always feared
that the deeper you go
the heavier and murkier
the energies become
so you continue to reach
for higher vibrations
above and beyond
outside of yourself

When you transcend duality
you discover that Love and Joy
are woven throughout
all vibrations
all dimensions
and all-that-is

It is not a higher vibration
it is the expansion
of consciousness
you are yearning for
where Love and Joy
reveal itself to you
in the very depth of your being
where Heaven on Earth
is nestled within
your human heart.*

Joy of the Soul

Doing
for the sake of
purpose
accomplishment
or success
is the goal
of the human mind.

Doing
for the sake of
experience
feeling
or expressing
is the passion
of the Soul.

The Soul
is as
joyful
and passionate
with inaction
as it is with
taking action.

The Soul needs
no acknowledgment
because
its sustenance
is in the pure joy
of experiencing life
with all its subtle nuances
neither more
or less
important
than another.

To the Soul
every experience
and expression
of life
is sublime joy.

Expressions of Joy

Joy expresses itself in a multitude of ways

for the one who is just coming out of trauma
it can be a flicker of light amidst the darkness

for the one birthing a child
it’s a joyous burst of unconditional love

for the one walking the forest
it’s an appreciation for the beauty of nature

for the one in relationship
it’s the pleasure of sharing with another

for the artist
it’s an infinite array of color

for the musician
it’s an intricate harmony

for the poet
it’s articulated with words

for the mystic
it’s the contentment of being

for the child
it’s the glee of life itself

Joy can be quiet and sublime
Joy can be explosive and exuberant

The ultimate Joy
is when we realize
joy is innate
always present
pulsing through our blood
as the stardust
from which we’ve incarnated.

Lighten Up

Making a serious commitment
to your Self above all else
is crucial to your Embodied Enlightenment.

However,
being too serious about the process
will entangle you
in the quagmire of the mind
that creates its own chaos.

Once you put a little giggle
in your walk you’ll be surprised
how fun Enlightenment can be!!!
