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
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.

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 is cutting away
all that is no longer desired
all that no longer resonates
with my expanded consciousness.

The other edge is cutting away
daily routines and mindless habits
along with lifetime friends and family
that have been supporting 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
where antiquated memory
is no longer running our lives.

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

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

And if so, I know
it will cycle back around
and be fully present with me
at exactly the 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.

Surrender to my Soul

When the human slows down
the Soul steps in
when the human goes quiet
the Soul shares its wisdom

When I surrender to my Soul
a magnet of passion
effortlessly attracts
all that I desire to me

Herein lies
my peace
my joy
and my well-being.

True to Who I Am

Who am I?

The one acting out
a persona projected upon me
by those around me.

The one playing the part
to maintain the status quo
to make others comfortable.

The one creating stories
to validate who I think
I should be.

The one fabricating excuses
when a simple “no thank you”
will do.

or . . .

Am I courageous enough
to step back from the drama
as the observer.

Am I courageous enough
to sit in the silence
no longer compelled to fill it.

Am I courageous enough
to surrender
all that others think I am.

Am I courageous enough
to simply be
true to Who I Am.

Sacred Dream of the Soul

Your soul has a sacred dream
carried in it’s bosom
for eons of time.

This sacred dream
has remained
unbeknownst to you
to safeguard it
until you were ready
and able to sustain it.

You have spent
most of your life
seeking this dream
looking hither and thither
feeling as though
a piece of you is missing.

You have latched onto
religion or spiritual teachings
codependent relationships
family responsibilities
unsatisfying careers
all to no avail.

It’s not until
you put it all aside
the illusive human dreams
that have been handed down
from one generation to the next
that you are finally empty.

It is this emptiness
this hollow place within
that allows the space
for your divine dream
to enter your heart
and reveal itself.

For it’s not until you
soften your heart
lay yourself open
and fully surrender
that you can embody your soul
that you embody the dream.

With the embodiment of your soul
your sacred dream will unfold
and reveal itself to you
beseeching you to join
hand in hand
with the exquisiteness of life.

The time is now. . .
to embody your soul
and allow your sacred dream to lead.

Gift of Surrender

With every expansion of consciousness
we awaken to a new level of knowing
which requires a surrendering
of what we thought to be true.

Surrender can be as easy
as taking a breath
or
surrender can become
a battle ground for the ego.

Whereas the ego thinks
surrender is loosing the battle
a giving up of what it thinks
is right and important.

The evolved human knows
surrender is the divine grace
that dissolves all barriers
between us and our divine birthright.

Surrender
is a breath away
your expanded consciousness
is a breath away
your divine birthright
is a breath away.
