Remembering

Old stories are unraveling
timelines are collapsing
karma no longer exists
duality has become a thing of the past
no longer supported by our expanded consciousness.

Step back, simply allow it all to dissolve
trust your Inner Wisdom
as it guides you to Remember
All that you Know your Self to Be.
And such Sweet Remembrance it is!!!

Who Am I

Who who who
the owl
sings me to sleep
with the askance of
who am I

Who who who
as I lay my head
on the pillow
and surrender
to the yet unknown

Rat a tat tat
in the morn
the woodpecker
calls me
into wakefulness

Rat a tat tat
remember
all of who you are
the totality
of the Divine.

Passion

Passion, oh passion
where have you gone
kidnapping my dreams
and desires

Leaving me
in the void
in the place
of nothingness

Alone and bored
with nothing
to stir
my appetite for life

Oh human, beloved human
this passion
these dreams
that you seek

They are the paltry
passion and dreams
of the human
that can not see
beyond this reality

What you are really seeking
is the passion
and the dreams
of the soul

You will not find them
in your mind
you can only find them
in the void

The void
where the mind is quiet
and the divine is
ever present

So rest in the void
while the mind unravels
releasing your passion
and dreams of the past

Rest in the void
in the exquisite
quietude
of your soul

Until the moment
your soul stirs
with new
exhilarating passion

Passion that breeds
dreams and desires
that transcend
your human mind

Dreams and desires
that make your heart sing
with infinite new potentials
and new orchestrations
of the Divine.

Constraints of Time

The more present we become
the less real
the extraneous becomes
finally seen as the illusion
we dreamed up
for the momentary
experience of it

When we free ourselves
of the constraints of time
timelines collapse
memories and stories
effortlessly dissolve
and the wisdom of the soul
is distilled to carry forth

Unless, we are unwilling
to release them
allowing them to pull us back
into the matrix
of the illusion of time.

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.

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.

Remembrance

After releasing all
of who I thought myself to be
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 what I thought
was a void

Allowing
the remembrance of
All That I Am
to bubble forth
and create anew

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

It does not feel
like I thought it would
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 attempt
to answer those questions
I am recreating
as I used to
think myself to be

Instead
I allow reality
to reveal itself
in each and every moment
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.
