The Illustrious Moon

The illustrious moon
who waxes
and wanes
month after month
year after year
decade after decade
over eons
beyond time

She who speaks to me
in many guises
showing herself
as a mere sliver of light
or the fullness of
an eclipsed blood moon
reflecting in the eyes
of the owl who sees
the wisdom
of all-that-is
in the midst of
the deep dark night

’Tis only now
I realize
she is simply reflecting
the wisdom
of Who I AM
the wisdom
distilled from
all my human experiences
the wisdom
that speaks from my heart.

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.

In This Moment

Always do
whatever feels right
in this moment
without looking back
without judgment

For this moment
is not the same
as the moments
that have passed

This circumstance
is not the same
as the circumstances
that have passed

Each moment
each circumstance
is new
unto itself

Be present
in this moment
and allow the wisdom
of your heart
to lead
without judgment.

Now That I am Empty

Now that I am empty
of that which is not mine
having released all
ancestral ties
society’s rules
religious dogma
mental programing
the need to judge

Now that I am empty
how do I choose to be filled?

Do I choose to be filled?

Or do I choose
to allow All-That-Is
to continually
flow through me
enjoying each
and every moment
anew?

In the Depth of Your Being

You have always feared
that the deeper you go
the heavier and murkier
the energies become
so you continue to reach
for higher vibrations
above and beyond
outside of yourself

When you transcend duality
you discover that Love and Joy
are woven throughout
all vibrations
all dimensions
and all-that-is

It is not a higher vibration
it is the expansion
of consciousness
you are yearning for
where Love and Joy
reveal itself to you
in the very depth of your being
where Heaven on Earth
is nestled within
your human heart.*

My Own Reality

My current point of consciousness
where I place my attention
is my only reality
everything else is
null and void
in this moment

There is no need
to resurrect the past
to engage
in past suffering
to face old dragons
rewrite the old stories

By being steadfast
in my present
point of consciousness
everything else
effortlessly
fades away

Indeed we see life
through our own filters
but even they dissolve
when we release
judgment of the past
and fear of the future

Indeed we interact
with group consciousness
but it is our own
point of consciousness
that creates
within the group

Therefore, carefully choose
your point of consciousness
be steadfast
in attending to it
and allow everything else
to effortlessly dissolve

THIS is how we create
our own reality.

Sacred Lover

I whisper to you
as your sacred
and intimate lover
for that is who I AM
the one
who has loved you
into being
from your origin
through every lifetime
every experience
every nuance of life
expanding
your consciousness
your wisdom
your ability
to enjoy life
from eternally
new potentials
for the simple
passion of being.

Remembrance

After releasing all
of who I thought I was
my persona
my relationships
my job
my home
my lifestyle
my identity
my old existence

I sit here
free of all that was
in the stillness
in the quiet
in that which
I thought was a void

Allowing
the remembrance
of all of
Who I Am
to bubble forth
and create anew

It does not look
like I thought
it would look
for the mind
never knew
Who I AM

It does not feel
like I thought
it would feel
for my emotions
were never the reality
of Who I AM

So what is my reality
what is this new life?

As soon as
I answer those
questions
I am recreating
as I was
as I used to
think myself to be

Instead
I allow reality
to reveal itself
in each
and every moment
in a new life

With a new found
freedom
without the need
to describe
without the need
to identify

For I know
Who I AM
at the core
of my existence
and that is
eternal freedom
