Lost in Passion

Lost in an afternoon
of the passion
of listening to
Spanish guitar music

When I opened my eyes
it was dark outside
and I took that passion
into my dreamtime .  . . .

Gifts of Expanded Consciousness

 

The more my consciousness expands
in my innate desire
to know all of who I Am
the more aware I become

The more sensitive I feel
as my skin of protection dissolves
feeling raw and exposed
vulnerable and unsafe

My human self calls out
to shrink back
behind the walls of protection
that no longer exist

While my soul is savoring
newly discovered delights
from my pallet of passion
which has felt void for far too long

It’s a challenge to open so fully
to feel so hypersensitive
bombarded by so much
inconsequential energy and noise

Overwhelmed by it all
we have come to forget
that expanded consciousness
comes with it’s own innate gift

Consciousness gifts us
with the ability to filter out
the noise and distractions
the discomforts and sensitivities

By simply choosing
my own point of consciousness
in every given moment
I Am free and secure

No longer living
in a world void of life
my consciousness offers
sensual delights

The old facades fade away
juicy centers are exposed
my passion runs deep
and my joy bubbles forth

’Tis the gift of expanded consciousness
that returns me to the fullness of life
and the knowing of
Who I Am.

Blended Human

The child within me
continues to giggle
with the playfulness of life

The crone within me
has gathered the wisdom
from all my experiences

Together
they blend into a
wise
loving
compassionate
joyful
human

Who savors
and honors
all the sacred gifts
of being human
in union with
Mother Nature
who has always been
my most esteemed
partner in life.

Serenity

Savor the serenity
of quietude
peace
emptiness
and contentment
after shedding
eons of busyness
and mind chatter

Allow this to be
your new foundation
from which to
create Anew.

Savoring Sweet Contentment

I awoke from
a dreamless sleep
cushioned on
a cloud of peace
in the silence
in the stillness
of sweet contentment

When the mind
began to search
for something more
I heard my Soul whisper . . .

Relax dear mind
simply relax
and savor this
sweet contentment

How is it that you
do not consider
this enough?

How is it that you
continually create
all the folderol
in a constant search
for the peace
and sweet contentment
that is always present
within the stillness
of this moment?

For it is from within
this sweet contentment
that you realize
your Self
as more than enough
and new potentials
effortlessly
reveal themselves
with ease and grace.

Take a Breath

 

When you stop and take a breath
can you feel all the parts of you
that have scattered with the wind
attempting to manage a life that
no longer needs management

When you stop and take a breath
can you feel all these parts of you
returning home once again
to settle into the core of your heart
communing with Love

When you stop and take a breath
can you feel all these parts of you
communing with your soul
distilling the Wisdom
from all your prior experiences

When you stop and take a breath
embrace all these parts of you
as the consummation of your sovereignty
as the unity of your GodSelf.

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.

Magic of Creation

Life itself is pure magic
the sensuality of it
effortlessly draws me
into its creation
to savor and enjoy
with sheer delight.

There is nothing I need do
for my human attempts
are poor imitations
of manipulating energy
in tired old way
reproducing more
of what already exists.

The magic of creation
is the joy of expressing
with its radiance
effortlessly dancing
throughout all of life
continually creating anew.

I surrender my old ways
of attempting to create
I revel in observing
the magic of creation
with new awareness
new appreciation.

I step into its sublime beauty
and savor the deliciousness of it
I sing with the playful
etudes of creation
I dance with its infinite
new orchestrations.

The Golden Times

 

These are the days of wine and roses
savor all that you have experienced
before you begin to write
your next Book of Life.

You’ll be grateful you did
because now that you can see the expanded view,
you realize these times are golden
and you’ll never come round this way again.
