Facts

Facts are facts
until they’re not.

The world was flat
and now it’s round.

Has the world changed?
Have the facts changed?
Or…. have we changed 
by expanding our perspective?

Something to ponder
next time you put your faith in facts
rather than your own Inner Knowing.

Labyrinth of Enlightenment

The Labyrinth of Enlightenment
is a sacred soul journey
of awakening, self-discovery
healing, and transformation
weaving its way from the edges
of our carefully crafted human persona
toward the heart of our Inner Being.

Just when we think we’ve attained
the bliss and goal of nirvana
the chaos of transformation spins us
back out to the edge of the circle
for a more expanded view.

It takes courage and trust to begin
edging our way back to the center again
with our newly acquired wisdom
only to be spun out to the edges
for yet another expanded view.

This divine design is the Soul’s
loving way of guiding us
through our many layers of healing
weaving all our broken or forgotten parts
into full and compete embodiment.

Thus there is no error on our part
all these experiences are essential
to the awakening and embodiment
of the multidimensionality
of our Divinity.

Transformation is not comfortable
for the human aspect of ourselves
but when we surrender
all our fears to our Godself
the path can be one of ease and grace.

Once you reach the center
allow yourself to rest awhile
to savor the distilled wisdom
from all your experiences
before journeying back outward.

Trust that the labyrinth of enlightenment
will always lead you to the center
of your sacred Inner Being
with a more expanded consciousness
and the newly attained divine wisdom
to engage in the world
as the Embodiment of the Divine.

Immeasurable Joy

You can’t measure Joy

As soon as you attempt to do so
you dilute it
by measuring it
against someone
or something else.

Joy has many variations
it can be experienced
as a soft warm glow in your heart
a waltz through a field of fragrant wildflowers
or a passionate explosion of life.

But no matter the experience
Joy is Joy
whole and complete unto itself.

You will not find joy
outside of yourself
you will only find it within you
because. . .

Joy is who you are
as a sacred aspect of your Divinity.

Universal Language

Universal language is spoken
by the dancing rays of the sun
the soft rustle of the trees
the exuberant songs of the birds
and the splashing of the waves.

It has color, fragrance,
sound and sensuality
all imbued with Love and Joy.

These are the conversations
from which we can
consciously create
our very own paradise
our heaven on earth.

Expansion of your GodSelf

 

The purpose of this earth experience
has always been to expand your GodSelf
with the joy of life at the root of your experience.

You are meant to create the reality you choose
rather than scuffling around
in other’s realities that were never yours.

Thus, follow your passion
go wherever your heart calls
and create anew for the pure joy of it.

The Doorway to Magick

Deep in the forest
the foot path narrows
until it’s barely seen
just wide enough
for the feet of the Fae
to duck beneath the fronds.

’Tis here the wind ripples
and the babbling spring sings
’tis here the magick abounds
with nary a whisper
the veils draw nigh
protecting the realm of the Fae.

Yet hidden betwixt
the dimensional doorways
there is another entrance
for all those awakened
to the truth of magick
and born of Faerie blood.

’Tis easier than one might think
to slip between the veils
and play in the realm of Fae
all it takes is an open mind
and the remembrance
of childish delight.

The invitation is always open
’tis up to you to accept it
a pot of tea always awaits you
served up in acorn cups
with stardust biscuits on emerald leaves
and a dollop of lavender jam.

Humans have become so overly busy
with nary a thought of the Fae
yet the doorway remains
with the welcome mat rolled out
requesting to lay down our packs
and lighten the load on our mind.

Why would we do that?
you might ask.
The answer is quite simple,
the Fae hold the magick
since the beginning of time
and are elated to share it.

Magick is not lost to us
it’s been held in safekeeping
until humans are ready to wield it
from the depth of our love
and the song in our hearts
as nature’s new creators.

So, listen my friends
to the giggles on the wind
and follow your path of joy
for here you will find
the doorway to magick
and a life of infinite joy.

Whispers of your Heart

Listen, Listen, Oh Listen
Listen to the whispers of your heart
telling you the story of your life
coming into form.

What stories it may tell
of love and joy
yet to be explored
in the gardens
of our long lost fairytales
residing in our hearts.

What songs they may sing
of longings
not to be ignored
along this journey
of heaven on earth
revealing all that’s ours.

Our heart knows
the way to fulfillment
of passions hidden deep
and maps the journey
of life’s greatest joys
with ever flowing ease.

Our hopes and dreams
await patiently
look inside you’ll find
the womb of creation within us
ready to give birth.

Wherever we are
our heart’s there too
so take a breath and see
solutions and answers
to all our woes
as worry fades away.

Our heart heals the wounds
from all the past
bathing us in love
to offer new vision
and clear the path
blessing us with grace.

So open your heart
let your love flow free
out into the world
with open hearts
we can all rejoice
and live our dreams together.

Listen, Listen, Oh Listen
Listen to the whispers of your heart.

Courage to Leave

When you have the courage
to leave behind a world that you love,
know that which you are stepping into
is far superior to what you are leaving behind.

It Takes an Open Heart

It takes an open heart
to hear what others have to say
when it’s beyond
my present understanding.

It takes an open heart
to hear what others have to say
to grow and expand beyond
the limitations of a closed mind.

It takes an open heart
to hear what others have to say
without judgment and the need
to sway them to my beliefs.

It takes an open heart
to hear what others have to say
from a place of compassion
honoring each unique soul path.

It takes an open heart
to hear what others have to say
to create a thriving community
with the diversity shared by all.

It takes an open heart
to expand our consciousness
personally and collectively
as creators of Heaven on Earth.
