Gifts of Expanded Consciousness


The more my consciousness expands
in my innate desire
to know all of who I Am
the more aware I become

The more sensitive I feel
as my skin of protection dissolves
feeling raw and exposed
vulnerable and unsafe

My human self calls out
to shrink back
behind the walls of protection
that no longer exist

While my soul is savoring
newly discovered delights
from my pallet of passion
which has felt void for far too long

It’s a challenge to open so fully
to feel so hypersensitive
bombarded by so much
inconsequential energy and noise

Overwhelmed by it all
we have come to forget
that expanded consciousness
comes with it’s own innate gift

Consciousness gifts us
with the ability to filter out
the noise and distractions
the discomforts and sensitivities

By simply choosing
my own point of consciousness
in every given moment
I Am free and secure

No longer living
in a world void of life
my consciousness offers
sensual delights

The old facades fade away
juicy centers are exposed
my passion runs deep
and my joy bubbles forth

’Tis the gift of expanded consciousness
that returns me to the fullness of life
and the knowing of
Who I Am.
