Time of Separation

Humanity came
into physicality
separating our selves
into a multitude of pieces
as diverse aspects
of our Self
to experience life
to the fullest

After eons of time
we got lost
in the separation
of our profusion
of aspects and personas
with a need to defend
who we thought
ourselves to be

Via our experiences
the consciousness of life
has expanded
the time of separation
drawn to a close
all of our aspects
examined and refined
into radiant facets
of the whole

We arise
from the ashes
purified
in our wholeness
enlightened
in our sovereignty
with the wisdom
of the phoenix

We soar
with spread wings
able to see
the expanded view
beyond separation
sovereign
in our radiance
congruent with
All-That-Is.

Purity of the Soul

Our Soul is pure and pristine
it cannot be harmed
wounded, scared
nor put asunder
it does not require healing.

Our Soul preserves
the distilled wisdom
from all our experiences
and the remembrance
of our I Am Presence
patiently awaiting our awakening.

’Tis only our human mind
and relationships with others
that create stories of
separation, abandonment
pain and suffering
nary the Soul, nor the I AM.

Therefore,
when feeling abandoned
broken or consumed by illness
sync into
the Purity of your Soul
the Love of your Soul
the Divinity of your Soul
and the Presence of the I AM.

Herein you will experience
the innate ease and grace
of healing
via the dissolution
of the human stories
that have held your Soul at bay.

All That I Am

All That I Am
continues to expand
it is not a destination
with an end to the journey
there are no goals
nothing to learn
nothing to attain
for consciousness is infinite
constantly expanding
with each and every experience
in the here and now
where All That I Am resides.

Credence

That which is looking for credence in your life
is actually looking for release
for it is only in setting it all free
that we are able to come fully home
to the place of no-thing-ness
where there is no need for credence.

Gift of Grace

Eons ago we all
separated from the One
into multiple aspects
to fully experience
the innumerable facets of life.

Now the circle is complete
the spiral has reversed
opening our hearts
to Love ourselves
back into wholeness
by unconditionally embracing
all of our personal aspects
simultaneously inviting us
into our own Oneness
with All-That-Is.

Before we can fully embrace
Universal Oneness
we need to embody
our personal Divinity
standing sovereign
as our unique God-Self
that has metamorphosed
into more of who we’ve ever
known ourselves to be
though our experiences
here on earth in human form.

This is a gift of Grace
freely given to every human
with an open heart
and the commitment
to stand in their Sovereignty
as a Divine Human.

Existence Without Interpretation

Existence without interpretation
allows all the woes of the world
to dissolve into the ethers
without any effort on my part

because these interpretations
conjured by the mind
are a false perception of reality
meant to keep me safe

but the only true safety
lies with my GodSelf
which has no need for
judgment or interpretations

for my GodSelf recognizes
everything as experience
distilled into divine wisdom
free of the mind’s stories
existence without interpretation.

In Your Footsteps

 

When you respond to another
you are actually responding to your self
for you have no idea who the other is
until you walk in their footsteps.

Facts

Facts are facts
until they’re not.

The world was flat
and now it’s round.

Has the world changed?
Have the facts changed?
Or…. have we changed 
by expanding our perspective?

Something to ponder
next time you put your faith in facts
rather than your own Inner Knowing.

Labyrinth of Enlightenment

The Labyrinth of Enlightenment
is a sacred soul journey
weaving its way from the edges of
our carefully crafted human persona
toward the heart of our Inner Being.

Just when you think
you’ve attained nirvana
the chaos of transformation spins you
back out to the edge of the circle
for a more expanded view.

It takes courage and trust to begin
edging our way back to the center again
with our newly acquired wisdom
only to be spun out to the edges
for another expanded view.

This divine design
is the Soul’s loving way
of introducing us
to full and complete embodiment
thus there is no error on our part.

Transformation is not comfortable
for the human aspect of ourselves
but when we surrender
all our fears to our Godself
the path can be one of ease and grace

Once you reach the center
allow yourself to rest awhile
to savor the distilled wisdom
from all of your experiences
before journeying back outward.

Trust that the Labyrinth of Enlightenment
will always lead you
to the center of your Inner Being
with a more expanded consciousness
and the newly attained divine wisdom
to engage in the world
as the Embodiment of the Divine.

Immeasurable Joy

You can’t measure Joy

As soon as you attempt to do so
you dilute it
by measuring it
against someone
or something else.

Joy has many variations
it can be experienced
as a soft warm glow in your heart
a waltz through a field of fragrant wildflowers
or a passionate explosion of life.

But no matter the experience
Joy is Joy
whole and complete unto itself.

You will not find joy
outside of yourself
you will only find it within you
because. . .

Joy is who you are
as a sacred aspect of your Divinity.
