Confusion vs Clarity

I love CLARITY!!

And I also appreciate confusion
for confusion means
I’m sitting on the brink
of an expansion of consciousness.

With every new expansion,
my mind initially foibles around
in a temporary state of confusion
trying to make sense of the new.

But once everything is aligned
a new clarity ensues
a new way of being is revealed
and life becomes more exhilarating.

There is no need to hurry
or push through the confusion
because the more we honor it
the more tidbits of clarity we receive.

And what a JOY that is!!!

When I love the confusion
as much as I love clarity
I experience expansion
within expansion
within expansion.

Thus my consciousness
is in constant expansion
in constant bloom.

Life’s Unseen Gifts

Speak not what others think,
rather know the truth of Self.

Think not of events of the past,
rather be in the present moment.

Worry not of things to come,
rather trust that all is well.

Trust not only in that which is seen,
rather contemplate the mystery.

For life holds gifts
beyond your mind’s awareness
and you can only receive them
with an open heart and mind.

Transcending our Thinking

There is no turning back
once we open ourselves
to living in the “unknown.

Sometimes, my human mind
feels like it’s courting chaos
attempting to put it all
in familiar linear order
but my Spirit is soaring!!!

Indeed, my Spirit does KNOW,
in moment to moment revelations,
No wonder the mind feels threatened
with new potentials opening faster
than the mind can keep up.

We simply need to transcend
our old way of thinking
wrap our arms around ALL of life
the known and the unknown,
the mind and the spirit.

Herein lies our Peace,
our childlike wonderment
and our impetus to Thrive.

Love and Compassion of the Soul

The deeper we go
within our selves
the more unconsciousness
is brought to the light
playing out
in full view

The more raw
the more tender
the more vulnerable
we allow ourselves to be
in the face of
what feels threatening

As the dross is stirred
rising to the surface
dissolved by the light of day
what is revealed
is the love and compassion
our soul has for us

Our soul
with its all-knowing wisdom
is ever guiding us
with the most gentle
ease and grace
if we allow

Breathe deeply, Beloved
invite the revelations
of your soul
to introduce you
to All that you Are
to All-That-Is.

Remember . . .

There is a sacred space
that holds the answers
to all the mysteries
that have been eluding us.

That space is deep within us
just below our deepest breath
just below the surface of the silence
just below the clouds of confusion.

Breath deeply
Rest in the silence
Ask to remember . . .

The Script of the Soul

How much of your life is a distraction
from your Soul’s calling
because the life you have
is familiar and feeding your restless mind?

How much of your life is habitual
because it is comfortable
without requiring you to step out of the box
into the unknown?

How much of your life is tied to others
because you are afraid
you will hurt their feelings
or lose their love?

How much of your life is complete
yet you fear letting go
because you have not yet seen
your new life coming into view?

Oh BeLoveds your new life
will never come into sight
until you refocus your vision
and redirect your mind.

Your new life will unfold perfectly
once you trust that your Soul
has unerringly scripted
something far more glorious
than your human mind
can possibly conceive.

Stepping into the Unknown

When everything has been jarred loose
‘tis because the life to which you have been clinging
no longer serves you. You feel adrift.
Your mind flounders going from one piece to the other
trying to put the pieces together in a new way
but they no longer fit.

Alas, the mind finally surrenders to the fatigue
allowing the old pieces to drift away
on the current that jarred them loose.
When your mind finally stirs,
the landscape it once knew
has been transformed into a barren wasteland.

And yet…your Soul knows something better awaits.
It is at this moment that a new doorway appears,
a doorway you were not able to see
while obscured by the old landscape
light from within the doorway beckons you.

Your Soul gently takes your hand
and begins walking one step at a time
toward the unknown.
Your mind wants to back track
but your Soul gently urges you forward.

With a deep breath
you step through the doorway
into the unknown
your next breath reveals
everything your heart has always known,
everything you’ve been yearning for.

Once you step into the unknown
you Know….
there is nothing but Love.

Your Heart always holds the Answer

Feel the quivering of your body,
that soft rumble of anticipation.
I ask you…
Is it fear of the unknown?
or…
Is it adventurous excitement?

Don’t allow the old world matrix
to answer this question for you.
‘Tis your heart
that always
knows the answer.

Dive Deeply

Riding the surface waves
is not enough
for they are
only vernacular.

Your Soul wants
to dive deeply,
feel intensely,
taste every nuance.

You Soul wants
to dive beyond
that which you can see
with your physical eyes.

Your Soul wants
to experience
that which you have
hidden from yourself.

Your Soul wants
to plunge into the joy,
shiver with delight,
giggle with glee.

You thought
going deep
would be dark
and painful.

Oh my precious ones,
have you forgotten
that you’ve hidden
all your cherished treasures
deep within?

‘Tis time
to dive deeply
‘tis time
to reclaim
the divine essence
of Who You Are.

Go Inward

When the world goes amuck,
I hear the whisper,
“Go Inward”.
When the next step is unknown,
I hear the whisper,
“Go Inward”.
When the answer is unclear,
I hear the whisper,
“Go Inward”.

And when I respond,
by “Going Inward”,
it all awaits. . .
the answers,
the clarity,
and the Knowing.
