Celebrate Being Human

 

Over many lifetimes
I have tasted
and
I have sampled
every experience
on the menu of life.

Until I’ve tasted it all
the good
the bad
and the tasteless
for how could I know life
unless I had sampled it all.

Sometimes
it was an entire life experience
sometimes
it was only a nibble
and sometimes
I savored every nuance.

No particular experience
was more successful
than another
simply different
in its texture
and its flavor.

Now that I’ve sampled
the entire menu of life as a human. . .

This is the lifetime
in which I get to choose
all my favorites
all the delicacies
and all the sweetness
that life has to offer.

Plus…. my personal chef
my GodSelf
is busy creating
a whole new menu
from all the wisdom
and new ingredients
discovered along the way.

Thus,
we have set a new table
with golden plates
and crystal chalices
under skies aglitter
with the stars from which
we traveled so long ago
to celebrate
the Joy and Beauty
of being HUman.

Pleasures of the Soul

What if . . .
we remember the
love
joy
pleasure
and gifts
of every relationship
we have ever experienced

Rather than . . .
holding onto the
sorrow
regrets
bitterness
and pain
of separation
from our original intent?

THIS is how our Soul
views our life
reveling in the pleasure
of every experience
for the pure love of life.

Why not live as the Soul does
savoring the pleasure
of every relationship
every experience
and every nuance of life?

When we live as the Soul does
we realize there is nothing to heal
the earth doesn’t need our healing
humanity doesn’t need our healing
we don’t need healing

All that’s needed is
a change in our perspective
to see as the Soul sees
to experience as the Soul experiences
and to live as the Soul lives
for the pure Love of Life.

The Soul’s Reality

It does not matter
if you dream it
envisioned it
read it in a novel
or live it.

It all becomes
soul experience
when you allow yourself
to feel it deeply enough
to embody it.

The soul does not require
mental validation
nor judges
one experience
against another.

The soul distills
the essence
of each experience
into wisdom
as its reality.

Everything else
dissolves as illusion.

Seeing with the Eyes of the Soul

I asked to be shown
that which I was afraid to see
not through the human self
who sees with the eyes of judgment
rather through the eyes of my GodSelf

To see with the eyes of the soul
she who sees the bigger picture
she who realizes each has a role to play
she who holds no judgment
she who has the purity of heart.

And thus I lay my head upon my pillow
nestle under my warm duvet
and enter dreamtime. . .

Oh the stories that are spun
the characters that stride forth
the truth that is revealed
all that I had not been ready to see
but is now in full technicolor

And through the eyes of my soul
I am able to expand my consciousness
to see the bigger picture
free of any judgment
with the purity of heart.

With a deep sigh of release
the stories and emotions are distilled
into the wisdom of the soul
integrated for eternity
with a pure and gentle heart.

And so it is. . .
when we are ready
when we ask and surrender
allowing the soul free reign
the truth is revealed
our consciousness expands
all with the ease and grace
of our GodSelf.

Spiritual Quest

At some point we realize
all spiritual teachings
are speaking to the mind
the human mind
that is constantly
seeking self validation.

When it fails to find it
in the outer world
it thinks it can find it in spirituality,
but life is in constant flux
thus the answers and the questions
are ever changing and evolving.

The human mind
has no concept of spirituality.

For spirituality
can only be experienced
as the purity of consciousness
where all the answers lie
in the wisdom of the moment
each moment with its own wisdom.

Therefore the spiritual quest
comes to naught
until finally battle weary
we set ourselves free of the quest
and lay down the gauntlet
of spirituality

By realizing . . .
in the ever flowing
change of life
the questions change
the answers change
and we evolve

What is eternal
is the purity of Wisdom
effortlessly gleaned
from within our Divinity
ever present
in each and every moment.

Herein we find ourselves
at Peace.

Book of the Soul

I closed the book of “Spirituality”
there is nothing more for me to read
nor anything more to learn.

I closed the book on the “New Age”
although it was new
I have moved beyond that now.

I closed the book of “Witchcraft”
there are no more spells for me to conjure
no more brews for me to stir.

I closed the book of “Healing”
for I know myself as whole and complete
as a pure expression of my GodSelf.

I closed the book of “Alchemy”
for I have already been transformed
from carbon into crystalline.

I honor these books now set aside
for they have guided me
to awaken to all of Who I Am.

I now delight in
the “Book of my Soul”
written by my own hand.

The “Book of my Soul”
filled with the Wisdom
distilled from all the experiences
I have lived as a human
and. . .
the essence of All of Who I Am
as a sovereign being who continues
to expand my consciousness.

It is with the “Book of my Soul”
tucked into the pocket of my heart
that I now live life with ease and grace
creating life anew with the joyfulness of a child.

Sovereign Being

A Sovereign being
is an amalgamation
of the purity of All that is you
held within the chalice of your heart
as all the aspects of your GodSelf.

A Sovereign being
is not a patchwork of
repeating other people’s words
following other people’s beliefs
or mimicking other people’s actions.

A Sovereign being
stands tall in their wisdom
no longer searching
outside themselves
for what they know is within.

A Sovereign being
is bright in their radiance
content in their countenance
and at peace with
Who they Are.

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.

Soul Speaks without Words

The Soul speaks without words . . .

why does spirituality
feel the need to explain itself
with so much mental jargon
so many verbal teachings
so many affirmations
so many incantations
so many words
so much noise

that it drowns out the Soul.
