The Mother

‘The Mother’

When light pierces the shell,
what follows–   folds and weaves
into a fabric of embrace.
Open arms peel back layers
of suffering, converting
the ignorance of fear
into the innocence of love;
melting away the absence of
light, into a crisp flash
of soft focus, transforming
a personal death,
to bathe just One being
in a world of rebirth.
When the mother sees us
and we alone see the mother,
her Love becomes the gravity
that we burn away in, until
nothing but ripened flowers,
resonating in pure bliss,
dance freely upon
her fertile soil.

What Do I Know?

image

When i come from a place of knowing, whether it is assumed knowledge or factual knowledge, there is a potential of acquiring the persona of arogance.  Something inside me has the capacity to take a position and often can drive a narrow perception.  What works for me and my own evolution can somehow manage to shift from a blessing to a perception that everyone should consider livong in this way and from this point judgment arises.

But after the dust of arrogance settles i begin to see the remnance of a Rumi poem that says, “there are 100 ways to kneal and kiss the ground.”  Such wise words from a poet i admire so dearly.

The truth that rises for me, is that, this existence that i express is a mere point of energy in the universe.  And the goal of the universe is to balance all energies to create harmony.  Energy balances in the mode of rebirth, purification through constant preservation of what is, and transformation.  This unique variation of light that is me, needs what life is presenting to me  at this time as a means of self discovery.  And that alone is my own personal truth in this moment.  To project and judge others based on that very unique lesson onto someone else is to potentially create inbalance and conflict in my own life.

Sometimes its good to challenge the thought process of the status quo.  I believe that we are all here, as Ram Dass would say, “to walk each other home”.  At the highest level i see the Oneness that is, but to practice discernment in this practice is a lesson in itself.

Part of the intuition that guides us into our own self healing, counts on us to be open to receive all the subtle lessons we are intended to experience.  When we dwell in a fixed position or judgment it has the ability to create a loss of focus in the lens of our higher vision.

When i truly come from a place of ‘i dont know, please enlighten me,”  there is no room for arrogance.  Lending myself to the possibility that from the standpoint of a thousand perceptions, the universe is more than capable to guide each of us in finding a way to the one truth, is a freedom in itself.  Just an openness to what is, is a freedom in itself.  To find love and acceptance in the fact that Grace is the only vehicle that guides us, and that everything that presents itself is specifically there to be seen for my own personal growth, is a freedom in itself.  To just live fully in each lesson i can become an example for others to discover their own truth.  If others are open to the possibility of growing and evolving, how i live, should be message enough.  I alone, as I am, is enough.  To live fully in my own discovery with gratitude, is enough.

Mighty as a Snowflake

What does a mountain
Of knowledge compare
to a single moment
Of complete devotion?

A tender snowflake
drifts its life away
Studying the fullness
Of the unknown
As gravity pulls it
closer to earth.

All of life is spent
accumulating a focus
And then melts away
in one instance
of complete
surrender.

Pursuit of Passion

image

Having experienced life so far i have started to realize that it all comes down to following your heart.  The pulse of existence lies in the call of all things that draw on our passion to live.  Everything that science tells me and spirit guides me to believe says that matter is formed by the constant repetition of energy.  And when we become passionate about something our entire being is responding to a letting loose and acceleration into that manifested pattern.  Just as if there is a cosmic wire connecting us from source to soul, our being responds when we engage the properties of that divine flow. 

In terms of electricity and the harmony of how the current travels, fear, social conditioning and resisting the passion to follow your heart can be like a resistor that is built into a circuit board.  It slows the energy flow and prevents the maximum output from taking place in our life.

It is my belief that just as a resistor is vital in the make up of a circuit, such precursors exist in certain points in our lives to help guide and help us adapt for whats to come based on our natural reoccuring pattern.  It is a part of the harmony despite the lack of understanding its purpose.  But ultimately we have the ability to break through that.  If the passion is strong enough, it will help us to transcend whatever inside of us resists our nature purpose.  By living through the call of all things that draw on our passion, we exceed the limitations of this life and fulfill our souls purpose.

Happiness

Happiness

I have felt
what happiness
was supposed
to be like.
Then God said,
just wait
I have only
just begun.

As a miner
lost in his cave
Searching for gold;
Finds thin walls
leading to a paradise
of waterfalls, rich
In wild abundance.

The way closed eyes
Find all things in dreams
still in the dark,
till morning sun
shines light
Through the veil
Of retinal shades,
Before they open up
Into a bright new world

Nothing with a Twist

image

Nature always reminds me;
The river flows from the spring
And returns to the ocean,

The flower grows from soil,
And Blooms in fullness of the sun
Before it returns to the ground,

That volcanic lava flows
from the earth’s core to surface,
And returns to crust and mantle.

Behind senses, i witness it all
From the quietest part of who i am;
And it returns to me as a mirror.

The Source reveils everything.
Creating a world of discovery without;
removing the doer from the path within.

In divine union,

The spirit alone walks eternally,
Showing its reflection in the waters of life
As it ripples through time and space;

Beyond book, beyond pen with paper,
All that is Knowledge and wisdom rise up;
And Both return into the sacred unknown.
