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.

Zero Point

Releasing all of
who we thought we were
leaves us floating
in a world of nothingness
bereft of what
we have left behind
not yet knowing
what lies ahead

Here we drift
in the zero point
between human
and Divine
between the mind
and the heart
between thought
and feelings
fearful of how
we will survive

Ever so slowly
acclimating to
a new way of being
trusting the soft
inner voice
that has gathered
all its wisdom
from lifetimes
of experience

And this Beloveds
is the place
to which we can
always return
when we feel
lost and asunder
for it is the place
of magic
of timelessness
of infinite potentials
the zero point
of All That Is.

Drifting

Allowing myself to drift
beyond the mind
allowing all
of who I thought
myself to be
to be pulled apart
into the nothingness
to die
to who I thought
my self to be

Drifting
in the primordial soup
of creation
until. . .

bits and pieces
of my soul wisdom
are drawn together
into a new
dance of creation
with new etudes
of music
wafting in the air
beyond the qualia
of the mind

dissolving
creating
dissolving
creating anew
in each
and every moment.

Yearning for Love

The human yearns for love
searching here
searching there
for the love
that will heal
their deep seated wounds
that continue to hold love at bay.

The human yearns for love
searching here
searching there
for a love
that will fill
all the empty places within
that have been sorely abandoned.

The human yearns for love
often finding
a temporary love
a superficial facsimile of love
a love that blazes forth
then fizzles into ashes
when asked for too much in return.

The human
will never find true love
until it surrenders
its human expectations
and dives deeply within
where the embers
of Divine Love
are always present
asking nothing in return.

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.

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.

Realization of my GodSelf

Deep in the silence
within my being
a spark of light hovers
radiant and bright
elusive yet real
hidden beyond
the veils of my mind.

Deep in the silence
rests a beingness
free of time and space
free of earthly desires
patiently awaiting
the realization
of who I AM.

Deep in the silence
I find you
every time
I surrender
to the silence
of the omnipotence
of all-that-is.

It is here that I find you
deep in the silence
as the GodSelf
that is me.

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.

Being Fully Present

Memory loss
can be a two edged sword.

One edge cutting away
all that’s no longer desired
all that no longer resonates with
my new expanded consciousness

The other edge is cutting away
daily routines and mindless habits
along with lifetime friends and family
in support of the old memories

One we judge as advantageous
the other disruptive
and yet. . .
are they not both of value?

For both force us to be
fully present in the now moment
where antiquated
memory, habits, and beliefs
are no longer running our lives.

So next time my mind blanks out
forgetting what I was doing
I have to ask:
Was it even important?

If not, it will simply
disappear from my life
allowing space for
something new and more vital

And if it’s important
it will cycle back around
and be fully present with me
at the exact appropriate moment. 

Therefore I can be at peace
with the perfect flow of life
knowing this moment
is the only one that matters.

Beyond Intent

By setting an intention
the mind is immediately
drawn into action
scanning against all that has been
rather than drawing
upon infinite potentials.

Therefore. . .
Instead of setting an intent
and engaging the mind
I take a deep breath
and sink deeply
into my GodSelf
asking . . .

Show me
more of who I am
show me the magic
show me all
I have yet to discover

to BE
free of
the mind’s limitations
the old programs
and society’s constructs

to go beyond
that which
I have ever known
into the depth of myself
to excite my passion.

I do not know
what this looks like
for how could I
when it is beyond
the mind’s imagination.

However, I do know
what it feels like to create
via the purity of my GodSelf
it feels like Home.
