The Spiritual Journey

The spiritual journey
is one of awakening
to the totality
of Who We Are
as Divinely
sovereign beings.

A sovereign being
is no longer embroiled
in the collective consciousness

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

A sovereign being
is not victim to anything
outside themselves

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

A sovereign being
is continually expanding
one’s 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

As a sovereign being
the spiritual journey transforms into
a perpetually expanding
experience of life.

Passion

Passion, oh passion
where have you gone
kidnapping my dreams
and desires

Leaving me
in the void
in the place
of nothingness

Alone and bored
with nothing
to stir
my appetite for life

Oh human, beloved human
this passion
these dreams
that you seek

They are the paltry
passion and dreams
of the human
that can not see
beyond this reality

What you are really seeking
is the passion
and the dreams
of the soul

You will not find them
in your mind
you can only find them
in the void

The void
where the mind is quiet
and the divine is
ever present

So rest in the void
while the mind unravels
releasing your passion
and dreams of the past

Rest in the void
in the exquisite
quietude
of your soul

Until the moment
your soul stirs
with new
exhilarating passion

Passion that breeds
dreams and desires
that transcend
your human mind

Dreams and desires
that make your heart sing
with infinite new potentials
and new orchestrations
of the Divine.

My Inner Sanctum

My Inner Sanctum
is the Holy of Holies
the place of honoring
the purity of
all of Who I Am

My inner Sanctum
retains all the Wisdom
my Soul has distilled
from all my experiences
through all my lifetimes
reflecting it
into my outer world

My Inner Sanctum
has no room
for religious texts
teachings from gurus
stories of old
nor judgment
from self or others

My Inner Sanctum
is my sovereign
place of wisdom
with the answers
to all my questions

When I live and respond
from within my Inner Sanctum
I am at Peace and
I Am Free.

Joy of the Soul

Doing
for the sake of
purpose
accomplishment
or success
is the goal
of the human mind.

Doing
for the sake of
experience
feeling
or expressing
is the passion
of the Soul.

The Soul
is as
joyful
and passionate
with inaction
as it is with
taking action.

The Soul needs
no acknowledgment
because
its sustenance
is in the pure joy
of experiencing life
with all its subtle nuances
neither more
or less
important
than another.

To the Soul
every experience
and expression
of life
is sublime joy.

Purity of the Soul

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

There is no dark night
of the soul
there is only the dark night
of the human
when it feels abandoned
and separated from its soul.

Our Soul delights
in preserving 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 and distortions
that have held your Soul at bay
and what a joyous reunion awaits.

Soul’s Passion

Courage is the Soul’s passion
to be fully present
with the unknown

For it is in the unknown
that all potentials await
rather than continuing
to repeat that which
has already been lived.

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.

I Am a Sovereign Being

I Am a Sovereign Being.

As a sovereign being
I realize all my needs are met
by the clarity of my consciousness
from the purity of my GodSelf.

I Am no longer hungry
no longer hungry for
love from outside myself
attention from others
nor acknowledgment of success.

I no longer feel the need
to rescue others
to attempt to heal others
to evangelize
or to save the planet.

I recognize that every human
is a Sovereign being.

By honoring
each one’s unique soul path
and empowering their Sovereignty
I grant everyone their freedom
by no longer enabling victimhood.

For my GodSelf sees no victims
nor need for healing or saving
for our Sovereignty calls forth
infinite harmony amidst life’s changes
and all flows with Divine Well-being.

Labyrinth of Enlightenment

The Labyrinth of Enlightenment
is a sacred soul journey
of awakening, self-discovery
healing, and transformation
weaving its way from the edges
of our carefully crafted human persona
toward the heart of our Inner Being.

Just when we think we’ve attained
the bliss and goal of nirvana
the chaos of transformation spins us
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 yet another expanded view.

This divine design is the Soul’s
loving way of guiding us
through our many layers of healing
weaving all our broken or forgotten parts
into full and compete embodiment.

Thus there is no error on our part
all these experiences are essential
to the awakening and embodiment
of the multidimensionality
of our Divinity.

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 your experiences
before journeying back outward.

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

Game of Enlightenment

The human mind can play
the game of enlightenment
but it knows not of enlightenment
for it can only draw upon
the replays of the past.

But the purity of the soul
does not harbor
any shadows of the past
it is always experiencing life
fresh and new.

We can not study enlightenment
we can only experience it
for it is through the soul
we become enlightened
not through the mind.

Enlightenment is not a goal
it is a continual
expansion of consciousness
with infinite potentials
brought into the light.

When we surrender to the soul
we are naturally enlightened
living life fresh and new
in the light of eternal expansion
with effortless Ease and Grace.
