Going Beyond Intentions

Whenever I set an intention
it is the mind
that is drawn upon
scanning what has been
to create something better.

The mind immediately
goes into action
spending its time
weighing the old
against the new

battling it all out
in fear of trying
something new
in fear of losing
itself and what it knows.

Therefore. . .
Instead of intending
and engaging the mind
I take a deep breath
sink deeply
into my GodSelf

and I ask. . .

Show me
more of who I am
show me the magic
show me all
I have yet to discover

to BE
free of
the mind’s limitations
the old programs
and society’s constructs

to go beyond
that which
I have ever known
into the depth of myself
to excite my passion.

I do not know
what this looks like
for how could I
when it is beyond
the mind’s imagination.

However, I do know
what it feels like
it feels like
the purity of my GodSelf
it feels like Home.

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.

Gift of Emptiness

What I once perceived
as loneliness
is the gift of emptiness.

For here, in the emptiness
there are no boundaries
no need for protection.

It is within this emptiness
that I’m finally able to be
fully present with my GodSelf.

It is within this emptiness
that I’m finally able to be
intimate with my human self.

It is within this emptiness
that my passion lay dormant
awaiting my realization.

Here in this emptiness
I finally know and experience
All of Who I Am.

Blank Canvas

Life began as is a blank canvas.

There is no reality
except that which we make real
with our “image-in-ation”
via personal or group consciousness.

That begs me to question:
“How much of what I’ve always considered to be reality
has been unconsciously handed down to me?”

There is no “one” reality.

What is real for me,
may not be real for you.
I get to choose my reality
and you get to choose yours.

This awareness expands reality
to new levels of consciousness
and
infinite potentials of manifestation.

Deep in the Silence

Deep in the Silence…
in the ever-expanding consciousness
allowing feelings to lead the way
beyond the human mind
visions proliferate
dancing with the symphonies of the heart
in multidimensional awareness
timelines merging
clarity, simplicity, purity,
sweet Blissings
in the Knowing of Who I Am
and Who I Am Becoming
for creation is infinite
continually creating anew.

Respect

Respect does not require me
to abide by your rules
or defer to your teachings.

Respect honors who you are
on your own Soul path
as a Sovereign being.

Respect allows me
to hear with an open mind
and react with an open heart.

Respect is only possible
when I harbor no judgment
against myself or others.

It is only when I respect my self
that I am able to respect others
therein lie my Sovereignty and Divinity.

Book of the Soul

I closed the book of “Spirituality”
there is nothing more for me to read
nor anything more to learn.

I closed the book on the “New Age”
although it was new
I have moved beyond that now.

I closed the book of “Witchcraft”
there are no more spells for me to conjure
no more brews for me to stir.

I closed the book of “Healing”
for I know myself as whole and complete
as a pure expression of my GodSelf.

I closed the book of “Alchemy”
for I have already been transformed
from carbon into crystalline.

I honor these books now set aside
for they have guided me
to awaken to all of Who I Am.

I now delight in
the “Book of my Soul”
written by my own hand.

The “Book of my Soul”
filled with the Wisdom
distilled from all the experiences
I have lived as a human
and. . .
the essence of All of Who I Am
as a sovereign being who continues
to expand my consciousness.

It is with the “Book of my Soul”
tucked into the pocket of my heart
that I now live life with ease and grace
creating life anew with the joyfulness of a child.

Sovereign Being

A Sovereign being
is an amalgamation
of the purity of All that is you
held within the chalice of your heart
as all the aspects of your GodSelf.

A Sovereign being
is not a patchwork of
repeating other people’s words
following other people’s beliefs
or mimicking other people’s actions.

A Sovereign being
stands tall in their wisdom
no longer searching
outside themselves
for what they know is within.

A Sovereign being
is bright in their radiance
content in their countenance
and at peace with
Who they Are.

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.

Soul Speaks without Words

The Soul speaks without words . . .

why does spirituality
feel the need to explain itself
with so much mental jargon
so many verbal teachings
so many affirmations
so many incantations
so many words
so much noise

that it drowns out the Soul.
