New Cycle of Creation

The mind has been creating
via force for so long
it knows not how to
surrender to our divinity
it knows not how to
trust the present moment
it knows not how to
allow the infinite flow of energy

It only knows how to
ramp up energy
by stirring emotions
and feeding on drama
to push through barriers
and perceived limitations
in order to accomplish things

Consequently,
this shift into new consciousness
is a huge challenge for the mind
which has exhausted itself
and your physical body
by continually bumping up
against human limitations.

Once we have broken free
of the outmoded human perceptions
and the antiquated mental programing
we are are floating in the unknown
where the mind feels
confused and unsafe.

Relax, breathe deeply,
soothe its fear and turmoil
much as you might a frightened child
allowing your mind to acclimate
knowing it will eventually
delight in its new playground.

As master creators
we are in the process
of jump-starting a new cycle of creation
by trusting our divinity
engaging with the infinite flow of energy
and accessing creation in the present moment
to manifest in superior new ways.

Gift of Compassion

Compassion has become
one of my most intimate teachers

Compassion, like forgiveness
is not about the other person
it is a gift to my self
the gift of maintaining
an open heart
by withdrawing
my own judgment
with the realization
that I do not appreciate
other’s interference
with my own life choices
therefore I have no right
to judge others

With compassion
I live with an open heart
no longer triggered
by anger from another
no longer provoked with
the need to defend my self
no longer attempting
to improve another person
no longer prompted
to change humanity

With compassion
I become a sovereign being
able to honor each person
on their own sacred journey
in their own sovereignty

Herein lies my true Freedom
because a closed heart
lacking compassion
limits my ability
to live a full
and fruitful life

Compassion has become
Who I Am and how I live my life
thus, my life has become
so much more enjoyable.

Take a deep breathe and
give your self
the Gift of Compassion.

Consumed by Love

I am consumed by Love
Love of self
Love of life
Love of nature
Love of all that is

I surrender
all I thought
my self to be
all I thought
my self to know

Allowing my self
to be consumed
by Love
with Love
as Love

I AM Love.

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.

gratitude to the unknown artist

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.
