The Spiritual Journey

The spiritual journey
is one of awakening
to the totality
of Who We Are
as divinely human
sovereign beings
with the gift of
experiencing
a physical world

A sovereign being
faces life’s challenges
from their own inner wisdom

A sovereign being
is not victim to anything
outside themselves

A sovereign being
is no longer embroiled
in the collective consciousness

A sovereign being
is free of the matrix
of the human mind

A sovereign being
continues to expand
their own consciousness

Bliss and nirvana
are not the goals
of spiritual awakening
these are human
perceptions
conceived by the mind

The spiritual journey
has no expectations
has no goals
it is an ever expanding
experience of life
as a sovereign being.

Dance of Life

Life is a dance
each step
leading us
into the next
with the flow
and rhythm
of the music
guiding us
ever forward
with the ease
and grace
of our sensual
connection to life.

Each lifting
of the foot
is a death
that spurs you
into living life
more grandly
with every
new step
allowing you
to become more
of who you know
your Self to Be.

Spiritual Principles

 

Attempting to defend
spiritual principles
does nothing
but embroil you
more deeply
in the quagmires
of the mind

Spirituality
is of the heart
and makes no sense
to the mind.

Honoring Our Feelings

You have the right to “feel”
any way you choose

Honor what you feel
for feelings are the
expression and guidance
of your Inner Being

Feelings are your
innate life compass

They are not up for review by
your chattering mind
your spouse
your children
your parents
your priest
or anyone else

There is no such thing as
a wrong feeling

It is our judgment and reaction
to our feelings that create
the quagmires of confusion
not the feelings themselves

So judge not and be grateful
for all that you feel

Woe are the ones
who have shut the door
on their feelings
and live bereft of life.

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.

What is Truth

What is Truth?
It’s very simple
the truth lives within you.

No matter
what you see
what you read
what you’re told
or by whom
know that the truth
lives within you.

The truth
will always
expand you
empower you.

The truth
will never attempt
to diminish
or control you.

Only you
can know your truth
and the truth
will always
set you free.

Feelings

I have come to learn
I don’t have to feel
what someone else
wants me to feel

That doesn’t serve me
and it doesn’t serve them

Their feelings
are theirs alone
irrelevant
to my feelings

When I honor their feelings
and I am true
to my own feelings
I am free to react
in a way that can serve
all concerned.

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.
