Effortless Release

When the energies
of the world around me
are doing loony cartwheels
and jackknifing off
in crazy directions

I slowly inhale
a long deep breath
fully expanding my chest
then allow the exhale
to effortlessly release
all accumulated angst

With my next deep breath
my consciousness settles
into the loving bosom
of my Inner BEing
and Peace prevails.

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.

Migration

When I quietly
allow the energy
attempting to move
through old
unviable pathways
without engaging
it will eventually
migrate to new
ever more vibrant
realities of creation

By aligning with
my true essence
ALL energy aligns
in service to me.

gratitude to the unknown artist

Relax into Peace

We run hither and thither
looking for peace
we rearrange our lives
we seek spirituality
we hide from the world
all in search of peace

But peace
is always present
deep within
the core of our heart
unable to be dislodged
awaiting our awareness

Take a moment
take a deep breath
and relax into peace
allowing everything
to settle into
its own perfection.

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.

Sweet Contentment of Life

Feeling the sweet
contentment of life
in knowing
that everything
I need and desire
effortlessly
comes to me

Each new moment
presenting itself
free of the old
limited human
expectations
placed upon
people, places
and things

Free of the need
to change things
or manipulate energies
because I know
life is constantly
unfolding
fresh and new.

Divine Expansion

Experiencing the breath
of Divine expansion
as I “Let go and let God”

Feeling all my cells humming
with an enhanced vibration
of well~being
basking in serenity
while the world around me
continues to bluster

There’s a sweet warm
self-radiance from within
and my ribs are a bit tender
from the expansion of my heart
as I breath deeply with gratitude
for the ease and grace
of our physical body’s
miraculous alchemy.

Lost in Thought

Lost in thought
about things to do
what’s been done
what could have been done

These are a tiring
waste of energy
diminishing peacefulness
and clouding our clarity

Every time you become
lost in thought
it means exactly that
you are lost!

To find your Self
allow your mind
to become quiet
utterly tranquil

In the quiet depths
of every being
there is a stillness
a deep inner peace
a voice of inner wisdom
guiding your life
in every precious moment.

Resting in the Void

Rest in the Void
in the space-in-between
betwixt transitions
between what was
and what is yet to come

The “old” has no place
to land anymore
it will dissolve
of its own accord
unless you continue
giving it your attention

Rest assured
be at peace
your Soul awaits
divine timing
until you are
ready and prepared
to take the next step
forward into the new.

Impermanence of Physicality

Once we realize and accept
the impermanence of physicality
we can relax into the natural flow of life

Pain and suffering ceases
once we are no longer grasping
onto circumstances people or things

Letting go does not mean
we do not care
it means we care enough
to allow the transformation
and natural flow of life.
