Transformation of Anger

Someone pulled the pin on a grenade of visceral anger
that’s been unconsciously buried deep within me
from a long time ago.

My first reaction was toward the one who incited this anger
the one who tread upon my heart, then turned the other cheek
a story from my past.

As I sat with this anger,
allowing it to bubble and churn
allowing it to effortlessly flow out of me
without allowing it to fester, without the need to process,
I realized I am the one I have been angry with all these years
for taking it all on, for shrinking into unworthiness
for playing the victim, for groveling for acceptance
allowing someone else to control my life
for a few tidbits of superficial love.

In that moment of realization
my raging anger was spontaneously transformed
by a flood of loving compassion
for the part of me who never felt accepted
for she who never felt seen for who she truly is
for the one that was afraid to stand up for herself
for fear of being rejected
for the one who did not recognize herself
as the precious being that she is.

In that moment of consciousness
the grenade of anger exploded into a burst of love
in which I now stand strong as a sovereign being
with my head held high with an open radiant heart.

To the one who unknowingly pulled the pin on my grenade
I surround you in love and compassion
for I know you were lashing out in response
unaware of the pain and anger buried deep within you.

I pray that each one of us is able to consciously awaken
to the love that is always nestled side by side
in compassion for the anger that’s been buried within us
and may we all stand tall with open radiant hearts.

Spiritual Quest

At some point we realize
all spiritual teachings
are speaking to the mind
the human mind
that is constantly
seeking self validation.

When it fails to find it
in the outer world
it thinks it can find it in spirituality,
but life is in constant flux
thus the answers and the questions
are ever changing and evolving.

The human mind
has no concept of spirituality.

For spirituality
can only be experienced
as the purity of consciousness
where all the answers lie
in the wisdom of the moment
each moment with its own wisdom.

Therefore the spiritual quest
comes to naught
until finally battle weary
we set ourselves free of the quest
and lay down the gauntlet
of spirituality

By realizing . . .
in the ever flowing
change of life
the questions change
the answers change
and we evolve

What is eternal
is the purity of Wisdom
effortlessly gleaned
from within our Divinity
ever present
in each and every moment.

Herein we find ourselves
at Peace.

Disengaging from the Drama

When I disengage
from the drama
of the conversations
happening all around me
and quietly remain aligned
within my clear heart-space,
the conversation shifts
to one of Love and Kindness.
There is no effort on my part,
it’s simply the way of Divine Love.

Surrender to my Soul

When the human slows down
the Soul steps in
when the human goes quiet
the Soul shares its wisdom

When I surrender to my Soul
a magnet of passion
effortlessly attracts
all that I desire to me

Herein lies
my peace
my joy
and my well-being.

Enjoying the Abundance

There are times when it’s vital
we do nothing more
than simply swing
in the sweet bliss of the breeze
savoring our earthly garden
allowing our physically to rest
while listening to the whispers
of the infinite Universe.

My Beloveds,
we’ve done so much clearing
it’s time to take a deep breath
and enjoy all the abundance
that is blossoming around us!

Gentle Sweetness to Life

The human
who has been conditioned
to living in duality
is always seeking
something more
to push beyond their limits
to attain more success
to experience more drama
only to crash and burn
as the pendulum swings
in the opposite direction.

Even spirituality
has one on a path
of constantly seeking
more of themselves
expansion of the I Am
attainment of a higher path
the expression of goodness
eradication of darkness
an escalation of the light
a more explosive
orgasmic experience.

Between the excessive
swings of the pendulum
there is a zero point
a stillness
a silence
a point of balance
a sense of harmony
when we pause
and take a breath
the extremes
of the pendulum cease.

When we
abandon the search
of reaching outside ourselves
when we listen and abide
by our innate rhythms
a sublime pleasure
sweeps through us
and at our core
we discover
there is a gentle
sweetness to life.

I Live my Life Intentionally

I live my life intentionally
intentional Love
intentional Peace
intentional Joy.

Do life’s twists and turns effect me?
Indeed they do
that’s how I grow
that’s how life evolves.

Do I allow them to run my life?
why would I do that
when I have the ability
to create my own reality.

I live my life intentionally
intentional Love
intentional Peace
intentional Joy.

My mantra is
Ease and Grace
and
therein lies my Peace.

Purity of the Moment

Having released so much
I rest in the purity
of this moment
this spaciousness
this no-thing-ness
without the desire
to fill it

Instead I allow
my new resonance
to draw to me
that which
is in harmony
with this moment
leading effortlessly
into the next
and the next
and the next. . .

Be the Peace

Deep within
is where peace abides
the peace
that passeth understanding.

Find that place within you
abide there
be the peace
maintain the peace
and allow it to reflect outward
in all of your thoughts, words and deeds.

Be the Peace
that passeth understanding.

Breathe with Source

Stop . . . take a moment
your own personal moment
withdraw from the hubbub of life
take a deep breath
and find your still point.

Here you will feel
Source
breathing into you
breathing with you
filling you
with ease and grace
soothing you
with gentleness
transforming everything
that is not of Love.

Stop . . . take a moment
take a deep breath with Source
and find Peace.
