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.

My Inner Sanctum

My Inner Sanctum
is the Holy of Holies
the place of honoring
the purity of
all of Who I Am

My inner Sanctum
retains all the Wisdom
my Soul has distilled
from all my experiences
through all my lifetimes
reflecting it
into my outer world

My Inner Sanctum
has no room
for religious texts
teachings from gurus
stories of old
nor judgment
from self or others

My Inner Sanctum
is my sovereign
place of wisdom
with the answers
to all my questions

When I live and respond
from within my Inner Sanctum
I am at Peace and
I Am Free.

Dissolving the Old

As old memories
drift through my consciousness
I allow them to dissolve
allowing old emotions to dissolve
allowing old beliefs to dissolve
allowing my old self to dissolve

until nothing remains
but the Wisdom
my soul has distilled
from all these experiences
adding to the core existence
of Who I AM.

Integrity

Once you awaken
to the Divinity
of who you know
your Self to be
your Inner Being
is calling
every thought
word and deed
into integrity
with the wisdom
of your GodSelf.

Light of the Full Moon

The full moon
is a reflection
of the Light of the sun

When you
look at the moon
she is a reflection
of the Light that is you
reflecting your own
Divine Wisdom
back to you

Do not allow
astrological predictions
or advice from another
to influence the Light
of your own Inner Wisdom
being reflected back to you.

Take a Breath

 

When you stop and take a breath
can you feel all those parts of you
that have scattered with the wind
to attempt to manage a life that
no longer needs management

When you stop and take a breath
can you feel all those parts of you
returning home to settle
into the core of your heart
in the consummation of sovereignty

When you stop and take a breath
can you feel all those parts of you
communing with your soul
distilling the wisdom
from all your prior experiences

When you stop and take a breath
can you be grateful
for the realization
of the totality of who
you know your Self to Be.

One Body of Consciousness

Our sovereignty
is a result of
the integration
of all the separate
aspects of our self
into the wholeness of
the human, soul, and I AM
as One body of Consciousness

Our human aspect
no longer drawing upon
the I AM
for it knows itself
as the I AM

Our mind
no longer drawing upon
its logic and machinations
for it has integrated
the Wisdom of the Soul

Our physical body
no longer drawing upon
energy outside itself
for all its separate bodily functions
have integrated into
One body of Consciousness

As a Sovereign Being
we generate our own
sovereign energy
as the integrated
human, soul, and I AM
with the efficiency and wisdom
of our ever expanding
Body of Consciousness.

Embodying the Truth

I don’t recognize who I was
last year at this time
having released so much of
who I thought I was
while embodying
the truth of who I AM

Everything is different
body, mind, emotions… life
even my Soul has expanded!

Loving Gratitude to my self
for trusting the organic changes
that allow the fullness
of my Divinity
to reside within
this physical body

In the beginning
some of these changes
were difficult and challenging
but that too shifted
once I made the choice
to flow with ease and grace

Who I AM today
is not who I will be tomorrow
for I know this is an eternal
process of expansion
for which I am grateful
because Love and Joy
have no bounds.

Lost in Thought

Lost in thought
about things to do
what’s been done
what could have been done

These are a tiring
waste of energy
diminishing peacefulness
and clouding our clarity

Every time you become
lost in thought
it means exactly that
you are lost!

To find your Self
allow your mind
to become quiet
utterly tranquil

In the quiet depths
of every being
there is a stillness
a deep inner peace
a voice of inner wisdom
guiding your life
in every precious moment.

Zero Point

Releasing all of
who we thought we were
leaves us floating
in a world of nothingness
bereft of what
we have left behind
not yet knowing
what lies ahead

Here we drift
in the zero point
between human
and Divine
between the mind
and the heart
between thought
and feelings
fearful of how
we will survive

Ever so slowly
acclimating to
a new way of being
trusting the soft
inner voice
that has gathered
all its wisdom
from lifetimes
of experience

And this Beloveds
is the place
to which we can
always return
when we feel
lost and asunder
for it is the place
of magic
of timelessness
of infinite potentials
the zero point
of All That Is.
