Restoration

So many lives
we have lived
within this lifetime

So many faces
we have presented
to the world

So many personas
we have acted out
in search of ourselves

Finally stepping away
from the emptiness
of all that was

Allowing it all
to effortlessly
crumble around us

Until all that remains
is the foundation
and the restoration
of our God Self.

Beyond the Veil

Feel into all the energies
that surround you
if you are sensing veils
they are your own
veils of separation
handed down to you
through the ages
and can easily
be dissolved
if you so choose.

Once we go beyond duality
veils cease to exist
because we are no longer
living in separation

The unseen
becomes seen
the unknown
becomes known
we commune
with disincarnate souls
as easily as
we commune
with incarnate souls
for we are aware of
living with All That Is.

Lost in Thought

Lost in thought
about things to do
what’s been done
what could have been done

These are a tiring
waste of energy
diminishing peacefulness
and clouding our clarity

Every time you become
lost in thought
it means exactly that
you are lost!

To find your Self
allow your mind
to become quiet
utterly tranquil

In the quiet depths
of every being
there is a stillness
a deep inner peace
a voice of inner wisdom
guiding your life
in every precious moment.

Resting in the Void

Rest in the Void
in the space-in-between
betwixt transitions
between what was
and what is yet to come

The “old” has no place
to land anymore
it will dissolve
of its own accord
unless you continue
giving it your attention

Rest assured
be at peace
your Soul awaits
divine timing
until you are
ready and prepared
to take the next step
forward into the new.

Zero Point

Releasing all of
who we thought we were
leaves us floating
in a world of nothingness
bereft of what
we have left behind
not yet knowing
what lies ahead

Here we drift
in the zero point
between human
and Divine
between the mind
and the heart
between thought
and feelings
fearful of how
we will survive

Ever so slowly
acclimating to
a new way of being
trusting the soft
inner voice
that has gathered
all its wisdom
from lifetimes
of experience

And this Beloveds
is the place
to which we can
always return
when we feel
lost and asunder
for it is the place
of magic
of timelessness
of infinite potentials
the zero point
of All That Is.

Aspects of Self

man woman
parent child
husband wife
student teacher
homemaker career
young old
good bad
activist pacifist
social recluse
religious atheist

These are all roles
we’ve taken on
faces we present
to the world
personas developed
into human aspects
by the ego
created identities
for self gratification

But they are not
Who We Are
for our GodSelf
does not need identities
to be acknowledged
to feel loved

Our Godself
is no thing
and every thing
whole and sovereign
unto it Self
living life as
All That Is.

Impermanence of Physicality

Once we realize and accept
the impermanence of physicality
we can relax into the natural flow of life

Pain and suffering ceases
once we are no longer grasping
onto circumstances people or things

Letting go does not mean
we do not care
it means we care enough
to allow the transformation
and natural flow of life.

Transcending Duality

Humanity has been living
within the concept of duality
for thousands of years.

Our human aspect asks. . .
How can you know light
without darkness?
How can you know love
without fear?
How can you know peace
without chaos?

But when we approach life
from the aspect of our Soul
duality becomes non existent
for the Soul does not judge
light nor dark
right nor wrong
better nor worse

The Soul sees all of life
as simply experience
for the pure joy of it

Living consciously
as the Soul
allows us to enjoy life
no longer fettered
with the pain and suffering
required by duality.

Instead we experience life
free and alive in the moment
with the ability to choose
from infinite potentials
with all the beauty and joy
life has to offer.

Labyrinth of Enlightenment (Volume III)

Introducing  LABYRINTH OF ENLIGHTENMENT,  Volume III of “Wisdom of the Inner Voice”
available for purchase in paperback and ebook
https://www.amazon.com/author/sharonlynshepard

“Labyrinth of Enlightenment” is a collection of poems reflecting our experiences as we awaken to our innate Divinity. This realization is usually initiated with the dissatisfaction of our outer world and a yearning for something beyond the empty busyness of our current daily lives.

The passage of enlightenment unfolds much like a labyrinth. It is a sacred soul journey weaving its way from our outwardly projected human persona toward the heart of our Inner Being. It is a path of awakening, self-discovery, healing, and transformation. By going inward, consciousness reveals itself to us with the realization that our Divinity has always been present awaiting our awareness.

This divine design is the Soul’s loving way of guiding us through our many layers of healing as we weave all our broken or forgotten parts into wholeness and complete embodiment to live our lives in grace.

Chapter Titles:
Awakening
Courage
Embodied Enlightenment
Expanding Consciousness
Multidimensionality
Gift of Silence
Soul Path
Bliss

May the words in these poems guide you to your own Inner Voice as you traverse your labyrinth of enlightenment. Trust that it will always lead you more deeply into the heart of your soul expanding your consciousness with newly realized wisdom to live your dreams and engage in the world as the Embodiment of the Divine.

Creative Flow

When I am in creative flow
I become
enlivened
entranced
and timeless
because creation
is fed by
the infinite
flow of Source

It is only thought
that depletes
and tires us
because it is
fed by the mind
which can only
recycle the finite
limitations
of old energy.
