In This Moment

Always do
whatever feels right
in this moment
without looking back
without judgment

For this moment
is not the same
as the moments
that have passed

This circumstance
is not the same
as the circumstances
that have passed

Each moment
each circumstance
is new
unto itself

Be present
in this moment
and allow the wisdom
of your heart
to lead
without judgment.

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.

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.

Allowing the Soul to Lead the Way


Tears of joy flow
with the passion and realization
that I am doing and living
as I have always intended for this lifetime.

It matters not if it is understood by others
it matters not if it is judged by others
it matters not if others are unaware
of who I Am or what I Am doing.

For I AM beyond the mind’s capacity
to explain or understand
and it is my Soul
that validates my way of being.

It is my Soul that leads the way,
enlivened with the joy and contentment
of living an expanded reality
while living in a physical body.

Resting in the Flow of Change

The days of needing
to know it all
or needing to be right
are long gone.

Life is in constant flux
therefore if what I know today
does not change tomorrow
there is no growth or expansion.

I rest in the flow of change
allowing what I knew yesterday
to fade away without judging it
as right or wrong.

And I welcome
that which was unknown yesterday
to be my new playground
each and every day anew.

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.

Your Wings Await You

Your wings have always been here
safely tucked behind your heart
along with all your dreams
and all your desires

patiently waiting
until you were ready
to go beyond
all that you have been taught

patiently waiting
until you felt safe enough
in the trusting
of your GodSelf

patiently waiting
until you loved and honored
all of who you are
as a sovereign being.

patiently waiting
until you were bold enough
to leave the old world behind
and take the leap.

Where you shall fly and where you shall land
I can not tell you . . .

For each flight
is new unto itself
just as each moment
is new unto itself
just as you
become new unto your self
in each and every moment
once you spread your wings
soaring
dreaming
expanding
enjoying
delighting
in All That Is.

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.

Alchemy of Love

By surrendering
to the alchemy of Love
fear is transformed into trust
doubt into wisdom
tears into grace
judgement into compassion
and chaos into harmony.

Purity of the Moment

Having released so much
I rest in the purity
of this moment
this spaciousness
this no-thing-ness
without the desire
to fill it

Instead I allow
my new resonance
to draw to me
that which
is in harmony
with this moment
leading effortlessly
into the next
and the next
and the next. . .
