Why?

Why am I in this body,

with

Impulses

Weaknesses

‘fraidy cat stuff

Head trips? 

Why is The Godself

in a body

with all these

imperfections,

with eyes and a mind

that recognize Perfection,

which makes me

know I am not

Perfection?

 *

What is the Purpose

of the

Journey

to

Perfect Ourselves

if the

Godself

within

is

already

Perfect?

 *

Why?

*

I am not

Resisting,

I am not

Refusing,

I am not

Challenging

My

Great Creatress 

I just want to know,

Why?

*

 *

*

Stillness 

in 

mind. 

I put my notebook 

of mad scribbles down 

and continue to sweat it out 

on the 

indoor bike 

Watching a rockstar 

in midnight hours

scream for me. 

*

A flash of light to my right, 

then,  

a thought 

Stagnation is poison

Sliding back is suffering

Forward is the only Healthy Motion

*

School

We take a class

Learn, even Master

a Subject.

*

another flash of light 

on the left this time 

Maybe when we have

Mastered something

we are to  move on

And learn anew.

Open a new Door

A new Subject

A new direction

A new reason

simply because

it is new

and

not-yet-learned.

*

We’re Here to Learn and Grow

We’re Here To Become

That’s why we’re Here

Wow.

gosh.

o.k.

*

An Afterthought,

Why would God even bother

learning, struggling, dealing

with

Imperfection

when She is Perfect Now?

She has it All.

She is All.

*

I was blessed to have it all, once.

Without a direction

I

almost died.

*

We Become

so we do not

UnBecome.

 We Become

Because

We Are.

“Her Again” or “I’m Getting A Serious Crush On This Tree.”

She notices me

penning Her portrait in words.

In the Night I cannot see any of Her faces

But Her Voice speaks to my Spirit

 *

Be As Me. 

Let go of Thought

Let go of Fear.

Root Deeply Into Earth

And Rise Up

Into Ever Greater Light.

 *

Stand strong that someday

you may become a refuge

for those in need of Strength

As I am a Refuge

For all that Live In My Arms,

even as the squirrel in these arms

is a refuge for Her little ones.

 *

When the hard wind blows

Yield and you will not break!

When the darkness comes

Stand Strong, Root and Strive!

When the Darkness is past

Give thanks for deliverance.

Hold Fast To Your Ever

ROOT,

If

the

 Tree Grew tall

before

the

Roots grew Deep

it would not end well.

*

When RA is Bright

Let this Nourish and give thanks.

*

When the cloud hides your Sun,

See, How thin the veil!

*

This Great Light is Yours,

and it is so much closer

Than you imagine.

Even when you cannot see The Light,

You have The Promise Of The Light,

Just beyond that thin veil.

*

When you are in the dark

Remember

the Light is already on its way.

Awake Sometimes She Speaks

AWAKE

If I could be anything in this world,

I would want

to be

Awake.

SOMETIMES

when I see me

in my life

outside of

myself,

I smile,

at the charm

of the simple matters

which make a life.

I smile at the pointless little worries

I once made

into such great worries.

It is a sweet, simple life,

with many Beautiful Blessings:

cat-sized squirrels,

bumblebee-sized hummingbirds,

pterodactyl sized crows,

sea gulls of predictable proportions,

The Great Palm

that the cat sized squirrel calls home.

Sunshine

Blue Sky

all experienced

in my

Fotomat-sized

tree house apartment.

No real worries.

Life is simple matters.

And I embrace these simple matters,

that Root Me To Life,

for I want to be Rooted in Life.

There are many little joys

and little joys

are the lasting and always kind,

not the exhilarators

that just go up and down.

If you can be happy to see and hear

Leaves on a tree

in orange golden setting sunlight

gently swaying

 in a soft caressing whispering wind,

you can be happy in all seasons.

* * * * * * * * * * *

She Speaks

I breathe with Her

Listen to Her

Experience Her

Fall in Love with Her.

*

Orange golden light

of the setting Sun

shimmering

whispering

shining

in

Her

oh

so

Delicate Fronds.

*

She watches over me

She says:

Never fret over what you want to be.

Become just what you are.

as

I Become All I Am. 

I am a tall tree 

The whole Kingdom can look upon me 

but only you See 

Hear 

Love  

Pray 

Talk 

Share

Life

with me. 

You love the animals 

that dwell within my shelter

as I do. 

You are from the forest 

and now in urban life

you long for that portal 

to the magic you knew 

where no humans tread upon 

Nature.

There you discovered 

the Beauty and Truth 

which dwells only in Pure Earth.

I am your portal, 

back to that Sacred Realm.  

In this 

I am your shelter too. 

You see in me Strength

You see in me Wisdom

You see in me Divine Beauty.

Be As Me. 

The Great Palm

now transforms

into another

of Her ancient faces

to Observe the Setting Sun

in Worshipful Devotion.

RA.

Gazing on the fading Light,

The fringes of her illumined

Golden Orange Fronds,

Like Fingers,

Delicately

Wave Goodbye

to Our Shared Source of Light and Life.

*

From Her Great Height

She now sees a Light

I cannot,

but She teaches me to See

As She Sees,

even though I have not grown

as much.

From Her I learn

SAT NAM

Constant Growth

in

Devotion

That I May Become

Just

what

I

am.

Eclectic Insights

Spirituality

Spirituality is not a practice of seriousness!

It is renewal of Spirit,

from the heavy beliefs of man

to be free to play as the heart calls.

It is an invitation to Be Love, to Be Light, to Be You,

and let go of fear and reactions to world-at-large.

Return to the child who lived in Wonder and play and pretend,

in the way that makes you happiest.

What is your Dream Self like?

You don’t have to explain it to anyone but you.

Explanations and justifications are not child’s play.

They are hiding places for adults who grew up

and forgot they were children.

* * * * * * * * * * *

Purpose Over Ego

In thought and speech of self

ego and imperfection inevitably arise.

In Devotion to Purpose, ego cannot enter.

* * * * * * * * * * *

The Always Best Move 

The best move you can make now, is to pay attention to now.

This will always be True.

* * * * * * * * * * *

Mission Of The Moment

Identify the mission of the moment.

Every moment has a mission if that is your intention.

In the lounge chair,

breathing in sunlight and Nature,

the mission is to enjoy breathing in sunlight,

and to enjoy experiencing Nature.

When cleaning the bathroom,

the mission is

to enjoy cleaning this mirror (this bathtub, this trashcan.)

* * * * * * * * * * *

Easy Contentment

For Contentment, Breathe this:

Breathing in, I am enjoying breathing in.

Breathing out, I am enjoying breathing out.

FEEL it, in your hara

your rising abdomen

your whole body

and the smile that can’t not arrive.

* * * * * * * * * * *

Being You

Be the person you want to be, in every moment of your life,

including this one.

It is a constant choice.

It is the best choice

for you and all involved.

* * * * * * * * * * *

Losing Self in Purpose

Pour yourself into something, even if it is washing the dishes.

Get out of you, to be free of you, to know you.

* * * * * * * * * * *

The Power of Passion

When you have a passion, a raison d’être, to lose yourself in,

you have a greater strength to address all Life.

That somewhere-to-go becomes a refuge that is always within.

* * * * * * * * * * *

The Way 

Recognize the good already within.

You cannot berate yourself into consciousness.

* * * * * * * * * * *

Develop in Light 

Instead of reproaching yourself in a moment for something wrong,

ask, What am I doing right? Am I having fun?

If you have become aware of doing wrong,

the awareness of the wrong is the right.

Have fun developing.

* * * * * * * * * * *

Consecration and Healthy Selfness 

The Voice: If you want to please Me, Know you.

Your preferences reveal you.

Don’t discard them as meaningless.

Meaninglessness is meaningful too.

Sometimes the most meaningful thing

is no-thing.

The most important thing is not how much you do

but how much you

are your True you.

* * * * * * * * * * *

Non-Dualism 

Life is always both/and.

Never either/or.

* * * * * * * * * * *

Improving Improvement

Never say, “I hate losing things.”

Say, “I love finding things.”

Say,” When I find this, it is going to be placed right here,” and make it so.

When retrieving the object, say, “I love knowing where things are!”

The energy behind the intention of improvement is everything.

* * * * * * * * * * *

You create yourself in all things.

Its not just what you do.

Its How you do in each moment,

including this one.

* * * * * * * * * * *

Shadow Into Light 

Has getting angry, frustrated,

EVER made it better?

Feel as you feel.

But be aware of your anger.

Awareness turns the shadow into light.

* * * * * * * * * * *

Physical Grace Heals 

Do everything with whole body awareness.

Feel the instant shift in consciousness.

Allow the practice of physical grace to

become part of each mission of the moment.
