Time of Separation

Humanity came
into physicality
separating our selves
into a multitude of pieces
as diverse aspects
of our Self
to experience life
to the fullest

After eons of time
we got lost
in the separation
of our profusion
of aspects and personas
with a need to defend
who we thought
ourselves to be

Via our experiences
the consciousness of life
has expanded
the time of separation
drawn to a close
all of our aspects
examined and refined
into radiant facets
of the whole

We arise
from the ashes
purified
in our wholeness
enlightened
in our sovereignty
with the wisdom
of the phoenix

We soar
with spread wings
able to see
the expanded view
beyond separation
sovereign
in our radiance
congruent with
All-That-Is.

Existence Without Interpretation

Existence without interpretation
allows all the woes of the world
to dissolve into the ethers
without any effort on my part

because these interpretations
conjured by the mind
are a false perception of reality
meant to keep me safe

but the only true safety
lies with my GodSelf
which has no need for
judgment or interpretations

for my GodSelf recognizes
everything as experience
distilled into divine wisdom
free of the mind’s stories
existence without interpretation.

In Your Footsteps

 

When you respond to another
you are actually responding to your self
for you have no idea who the other is
until you walk in their footsteps.

Moon Within Me

There is a moon within me
that answers to She in the sky
waxing and waning
with the rhythms of her lunar sequence

Deeply She dives into the darkness
in search of the wisdom
that has been so craftily hidden
on the far side of the moon.

With each successive evening sky
ever so slowly she rotates
revealing her feminine wisdom
one juicy morsel at a time.

Until the full radiance of her face
smiles upon me with all her passion
whispering to me from high in the sky
and from deep within me, I answer.

Your Presence of Love

You entered the world on a beam of light
radiant being filled with wonder
You danced in on a song of Love
bringing joy and delight.

You came in with a message of hope
a wealth of wisdom and compassion
You ushered in a time of harmony
with hope of a better world, a world of peace.

Your gift of presence, simple and pure
expands and grows, touching all.
Your hope and wisdom, love and joy,
awaken us to a world of pure delight.

You touched our hearts, they’re bursting open,
with your presence Love now grows.
You fill our hearts to overflowing
with your presence Love now grows.

With your presence, Love grows.

Purity of Wisdom

There is a library
of infinite Wisdom
residing within you.

It is your Soul
that has gathered
these tomes of wisdom
gleaned from lifetimes
of human experience.

Wisdom in its purity
free of judgment
free of the stories
free of timelines
free of the human drama.

This is your
sovereign Wisdom
not something handed down
from the stars
or the gods above.

Be still, go within
immerse yourself
in the pure Wisdom
that is always available
and in service to you.

Cauldron of my Heart

There are times. . .
my outer world feels like
everything has come to a standstill.
Nothing appears to be happening
despite the racing of my mind
in search of something to do
to give itself credence
in a world that’s gone amuck
in pretenses that make no sense.

Meanwhile. . .
my inner sanctum
is bubbling in answer
to the quickening call of the Divine
with each expansion of Consciousness
and my Creator Self is cooking up
a delicious spicy stew
to be stirred and savored
with the essences of Love and Joy.

When I dip my spoon
into the cauldron of my heart
and raise it to my lips
it brings sublime nourishment
and courage to express anew
that which others fail to notice
in a world of busyness
that has naught
to render a pause.

Thus, my BeLoveds,
tend the bubbling of your heart
and serve up your bowls of Love and Joy
to those who are in need
of the nourishment of the Divine.

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.
