Transformation of Anger

Someone pulled the pin on a grenade of visceral anger
that’s been unconsciously buried deep within me
from a long time ago.

My first reaction was toward the one who incited this anger
the one who tread upon my heart, then turned the other cheek
a story from my past.

As I sat with this anger,
allowing it to bubble and churn
allowing it to effortlessly flow out of me
without allowing it to fester, without the need to process,
I realized I am the one I have been angry with all these years
for taking it all on, for shrinking into unworthiness
for playing the victim, for groveling for acceptance
allowing someone else to control my life
for a few tidbits of superficial love.

In that moment of realization
my raging anger was spontaneously transformed
by a flood of loving compassion
for the part of me who never felt accepted
for she who never felt seen for who she truly is
for the one that was afraid to stand up for herself
for fear of being rejected
for the one who did not recognize herself
as the precious being that she is.

In that moment of consciousness
the grenade of anger exploded into a burst of love
in which I now stand strong as a sovereign being
with my head held high with an open radiant heart.

To the one who unknowingly pulled the pin on my grenade
I surround you in love and compassion
for I know you were lashing out in response
unaware of the pain and anger buried deep within you.

I pray that each one of us is able to consciously awaken
to the love that is always nestled side by side
in compassion for the anger that’s been buried within us
and may we all stand tall with open radiant hearts.

Gift of Emptiness

What I once perceived
as loneliness
is the gift of emptiness.

For here, in the emptiness
there are no boundaries
no need for protection.

It is within this emptiness
that I’m finally able to be
fully present with my GodSelf.

It is within this emptiness
that I’m finally able to be
intimate with my human self.

It is within this emptiness
that my passion lay dormant
awaiting my realization.

Here in this emptiness
I finally know and experience
All of Who I Am.

Unconscious agendas of Giving


Everything we do
we do for our selves.

Until we realize ourselves
as Sovereign Beings
everything we think we’re doing for others
comes with an unconscious agenda.

We are
looking for acceptance
looking for acknowledgment
looking for love
looking for all we need
in exchange for all we give.

Once we realize ourselves
as Sovereign Beings
the agendas dissolve
and all is purely
given and received
by self and others.

Therefore. . .
give first to self
all that you need and desire
only then are you able to give and receive
with a pure and fulfilled heart.

Separation Consciousness

As long as we’re discussing the balancing
of the feminine and the masculine
we’re living in duality
and separation consciousness.

Isn’t it time to go beyond
this limiting concept
of dividing things out
into separate parcels?

Isn’t it time to go beyond
the mind’s linear concepts
of feminine or masculine
heart or mind
left brain or right brain
right or wrong?

Isn’t it time to
experience life as it presents itself
free of separation
free of judgment?

For all of life is interwoven
as a pure expression of the Divine.

Isn’t it time to
fully live our Divinity?

Healing the original wound of Separation

I do not come “from” the One
I do not come “from” Source
I do not come “from” God
I AM SOURCE
I AM GOD!

The concept
of coming “from”
the One, Source or God
is the original wound
of separation.

Isn’t it time to heal
the ancient wound of separation
and realize we are ALL That Is?

I AM Source.
I AM God.
I AM All That Is.

Resurrecting the memories of Easter

Resurrecting the memories of Easter . . .

I awakened with the song,
“Christ the lord is risen today”
as a child in the choir
standing upon the hillside
overlooking the graveyard
waiting for the illustrious sunrise.

This morning I’m hearing this song
from a whole new awareness
as it reverberates within me.

I feel the Christ within me
rising above the limitations
of the human mind,

I feel the Christ within me
rising above the religious dogma
of power and control,

I feel the Christ consciousness
within everyone of my cells
vibrating with health and vitality

I feel the Resurrection
the re-surgence
of Christ Consciousness
as a sovereign being
as Who I Am.

Indeed. . .
Christ the Lord has Risen Today!!!
within me
within you
within All of us
for it is Who We Are.

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.

Love Incarnate

Your Divine Self
has always loved you.
As you opened yourself
to allow that Love to trickle in,
your human self
began to fall in love
with your humanness.

And thus . . .
you are now in the throws
of a passionate love affair,
with the realization that
you have always been
and always will be
Love incarnate.

Embodiment

For many years
we’ve been speaking
spiritual words
spiritual concepts
spiritual teachings.

For many years
we’ve been seeking
we’ve been the students
we’ve been the teachers
we’ve become the gurus.

Oh my Beloveds,those years are past . . .

Mental jargon
only continues to
spin more tales
and add to the many tomes
of enlightenment.

A shift in consciousness
can only occur
when you dive deeply
into the frailties
of your humanness.

It requires you
to fully embody
the words
the concepts
the teachings.

What you will discover
is that the human
has never been frail
it is only the mind
that is frail.

What you will discover
by diving deeply
into the human experience
is the true knowing
of Who You Are.

Fully Available

So many pieces of myself
I have given away
in hopes that others may feel loved
in hopes others may find happiness
in hopes others may feel safe and secure.

In the end, I was left bereft and empty
with nothing of myself remaining,
and yet it has helped them not
for in depending upon me
they too have lost themselves.

And now that I have reclaimed
all of who I Am
as a whole and sovereign being
I am fully available to others
as the example
of a unique expression of the Divine
living life to the fullest
that they too may find it in themselves.
