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 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.

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
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.

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.

Commitment to Self

Honor your Self
by spending time
free of all distractions
for a day, a week
or even a few hours.

Sense the invitation
from the wisdom of your Soul
to fully experience
the expanded consciousness
that awaits you.

Allow your consciousness
to follow your heart
breaking free of
the old illusions
to create anew.

Immerse yourself
in your Soul’s expression
writing, artwork, music,
time away in nature or
wherever your heart calls.

A commitment made
to spend sacred time
with your GodSelf
will yield gifts
beyond your imagination.

Purity of Wisdom

There is a library
of infinite Wisdom
residing within you.

It is your Soul
that has gathered
these tomes of wisdom
gleaned from lifetimes
of human experience.

Wisdom in its purity
free of judgment
free of the stories
free of timelines
free of the human drama.

This is your
sovereign Wisdom
not something handed down
from the stars
or the gods above.

Be still, go within
immerse yourself
in the pure Wisdom
that is always available
and in service to you.

Trust in the Divine

 

There was a time when…
I needed to know
I needed to understand
before I was willing
to take a step forward.

Now… my steps are taken,
from a place of Trust,
trust in the Divine,
which is beyond anything
my mind could conjure.

Thus… when I feel an urging
to take a step forward
I know ‘tis my Divine purpose,
and there is no need
to understand in advance.

For… every step
has already been laid out
with the intricate precision
of the ultimate intelligence
of the Divine.
