Reality

The illusion in which we live
is nothing more than
the stories created by our minds
when we let go of the stories
what remains is reality
and that reality
is Love.

Removing the Mask

You can drape it with silk
and encrust it with jewels
but sooner or later
you realize
your mask
has served it’s purpose
and it’s time
to lovingly remove it
and set it aside
to experience and embrace
the Beloved Self
who you have always been
and have yet to become.

The Illustrious Moon

The illustrious moon
who waxes
and wanes
month after month
year after year
decade after decade
over eons
beyond time

She who speaks to me
in many guises
showing herself
as a mere sliver of light
or the fullness of
an eclipsed blood moon
reflecting in the eyes
of the owl who sees
the wisdom
of all-that-is
in the midst of
the deep dark night

’Tis only now
I realize
she is simply reflecting
the wisdom
of Who I AM
the wisdom
distilled from
all my human experiences
the wisdom
that speaks from my heart.

My Inner Sanctum

My Inner Sanctum
is the Holy of Holies
the place of honoring
the purity of
all of Who I Am

My inner Sanctum
retains all the Wisdom
my Soul has distilled
from all my experiences
through all my lifetimes
reflecting it
into my outer world

My Inner Sanctum
has no room
for religious texts
teachings from gurus
stories of old
nor judgment
from self or others

My Inner Sanctum
is my sovereign
place of wisdom
with the answers
to all my questions

When I live and respond
from within my Inner Sanctum
I am at Peace and
I Am Free.

Remembrance

After releasing all
of who I thought I was
my persona
my relationships
my job
my home
my lifestyle
my identity
my old existence

I sit here
free of all that was
in the stillness
in the quiet
in that which
I thought was a void

Allowing
the remembrance
of all of
Who I Am
to bubble forth
and create anew

It does not look
like I thought
it would look
for the mind
never knew
Who I AM

It does not feel
like I thought
it would feel
for my emotions
were never the reality
of Who I AM

So what is my reality
what is this new life?

As soon as
I answer those
questions
I am recreating
as I was
as I used to
think myself to be

Instead
I allow reality
to reveal itself
in each
and every moment
in a new life

With a new found
freedom
without the need
to describe
without the need
to identify

For I know
Who I AM
at the core
of my existence
and that is
eternal freedom

Gift of Experience

Experience
every experience
is a gift.

There are no levels
of experience
high or low
good or bad
unless we choose
to judge them as such
and then the experience
becomes a burden
rather than a gift.

We have the opportunity
to accept the gift
of every experience
as a treasure of wisdom
to more fully love ourselves
and open more fully to life.

Purity of the Soul

Our Soul is divinely
pure and pristine
it cannot be harmed
wounded, scared
nor put asunder
nor does it require healing.

There is no dark night
of the soul
there is only the dark night
of the human
when it feels abandoned
and separated from its soul.

Our Soul delights
in preserving the distilled wisdom
from all our experiences
and the remembrance
of our I Am Presence
patiently awaiting our awakening.

’Tis only our human mind
and relationships with others
that create stories of
separation, abandonment
pain and suffering
nary the Soul, nor the I AM.

Therefore,
when feeling abandoned
broken or consumed by illness
sync into
the purity of your Soul
the love of your Soul
the divinity of your Soul
and the presence of the I AM.

Herein you will experience
the innate ease and grace
of healing
via the dissolution
of the human stories and distortions
that have held your Soul at bay
and what a joyous reunion awaits.

All That I Am

All That I Am
continues to expand
it is not a destination
with an end to the journey
there are no goals
nothing to learn
nothing to attain
for consciousness is infinite
constantly expanding
with each and every experience
in the here and now
where All That I Am resides.

Credence

That which is looking for credence in your life
is actually looking for release
for it is only in setting it all free
that we are able to come fully home
to the place of no-thing-ness
where there is no need for credence.

Gift of Grace

Eons ago
we all separated from the One
into multiple aspects
to fully experience
the infinite facets of life.

Now the circle is complete
the spiral has reversed
opening our hearts
to Love ourselves
returning into wholeness
by unconditionally embracing
all of our personal aspects
simultaneously inviting us
into our own Oneness
with All-That-Is

Standing sovereign
as our unique God-Self
who has metamorphosed
into more of who
we’ve ever known ourselves to be
though our experiences
here on earth in human form.

This is a gift of Grace
freely given to every human
with an open heart
and the commitment
to stand in our Sovereignty
as a Divine Human.
