Coming Undone

Coming Undone

Under the pseudo identity

You cling to;

Just below the surface

Is an ocean of awareness.

It’s like swimming in the ocean

As a fish

At home in the sea.

Suddenly the world opens

All pretense fade away.

What is revealed 

Is a unmarked face.

A memory forgotten

A problem erased.

Your life has become

One with the sea.

No beginning,

No end

Just empty space.

Self-fulfillment is Self-love

Before you have something to give to others,

you must first give to yourself.

A kind of self-acceptance, forgiveness,

and gratitude.

Of all the creatures on the earth.

We are fortunate to be a human.

Filled with emotions, feelings

and a thinking mind.

To think of a world

and it manifest before our eyes,

is the greatest gift.

To live in this forever moment,

that extends into the future,

is the way to live that honors the sanctity of life.

Technology and Me

Interfaced with Technology
I am at home on my computer.
Whether it be a smart phone or an iPad.
It is an extension of me.
My thoughts, my action and my words are stored somewhere in
Virtual Reality.
As if someone is watching me and sending all that
I think and write.
Some look at Facebook as snooping.
I look past the most obvious
Into my own Law of Attraction.
Everything I speak into existence
Show up in my world.
There is no boogie man creeping up behind me.
I make causes with my thoughts, actions and words.
Like a boomerang it comes back to me.
As I take it into my awareness
It becomes my experience.
No one can tell me how to relate.
If it causes me trepidation
I can just let it pass by.
Like watching a wave
Rise to a crescendo
Then fall back into the ocean floor.
We are moving beyond the obvious.
Seeing clearer and deeper into the ocean.
All the marvelous and wonderful creatures
Live deep in the Sea.

Intuition

Empowered Woman, Intuition, Mindfulness, Spiritual Awakening, The Great Awakening 2016, Transformation Retreat, Womanist Empowerment

HEART-BASED INTELLIGENCE

Attributes: courage, compassion, and communication.

The intelligence in the heart encourages us to adopt the practice of courage, compassion, and care and use them to communicate and connect with all other life forms in our environment. It guides us to what is appropriate to say or do in moments of need and allows us to connect and communicate in often unspoken ways and to bond with people, animals, and places in ways that cannot be described by words or rational thought. This center of wisdom prompts us to ask the questions, such as: “Is my life filled with beauty? Do I love what I do? How can I discover my joy? What would I do if I were not afraid? Am I bringing the best of myself to my life and the world?”

VISIONARY POWER

Attributes: imagination, visionary certainty, and creative possibility.

The third level of intuitive intelligence is found in the mystical and often misunderstood power of extrasensory perception (ESP), expanded spiritual vision, lucid dreaming and other elevated psychic events. This is the level of intuition where extraordinary solutions, alternate ways of doing things, and groundbreaking new ideas are commonplace. When this center of wisdom is active it guides us to ask questions such as: “What do I see as a solution or possibility? Is there something I am overlooking? What dreams do I have for my future that I haven’t given myself permission to make into reality?”

Fear and Freedom

Fear and Freedom,
Which path do you take?

Which reality do you create?

We have seen how Fear lives in the heart of man.
Through violence and war
It ravages the land and…
Lives in Secrecy.

Under the cloak of Religion.
Underneath the altar boy.
Secrets it tries to hide.

In this era of Transformation,
Secrets fly out the door.
Into the open
Where they can be seen.
Casting a doubt on fear.
Clearing the air for another reality.
Forged in bowels of society.

Truth breaks free into the Open Sky.
Hoovers over Humanity.
A thousand years of prosperity.

Human Revolution

Human revolution is the work of transforming our lives at the very core. It involves identifying and challenging those things which inhibit the full expression of our positive potential and humanity.

The next step in our evolution as people.

Nichiren Buddhism is based on belief in a pure, positive and enlightened condition of life which exists equally within all people.

This life state of “Buddhahood” is characterized by the qualities of compassion, wisdom and courage, which enable us to create something of value from any situation.

Nichiren realized that the deepest process of change and purification takes place when we bring forth this state, and he taught the practice of chanting “Nam-myoho-renge-kyo” as the direct and immediate means for accessing and experiencing it.

The other night while driving home from Sea World, with my daughter in the passenger seat and four grands in the back a feeling overcame me and wanted to drag me under.

It was like swimming on the surface of the ocean as wave upon wave tossed and pulled me under. I allowed the wave to smash into me and felt the full power and grasped for a quick breath.

But first, back to the reason I was driving at night. I didn’t sleep well and I even wanted to stay in bed. But it was Camden and Grey’s Sixth birthday celebration. So I agreed

With coffee in my system and a warm shower on my face, I changed my frame of mind and looked forward to the day.

My daughter drove. Even though I am a morning person and would have preferred to drive first. The drive home was decided for me.

As I walked into my daughters bedroom a few hours before we were to leave Cailin replied. “Let Mumsil drive. “ Keshia in a matter of fact stated, I’ll drive in the morning, Mother will drive us home.

Sea World was a wonderful experience. I felt like a little girl as Rylie, Cailin and myself rode the coasters and screamed our heads off.

After a day long adventure I got behind the driver seat and began to drive home.

As I merged onto the ramp darkness began to  surround me. I looked at the oncoming bright lights and started to shiver.

Anxiety gripped my mind. Suddenly I did not think  I could navigate successful on the highway. I thought I would crash.

Irrational thoughts flooded my mind. I’m not sure where they came from. I’ve driven a car on the highways at night many times before.

I grabbed the steering wheel, sat up straight and looked over at my daughter. Just ten minutes earlier she asked if I was ok.

Feeling a little shaky, but told her everything was ok. Not wanting her to assume the heavy burden of driving to and from Sea World.

I finally relented and told her of the feelings that were vying for control.

I pulled off the freeway and turned the wheel over to her. My mind began to process the swirling feelings that had spun out of control.

There were many challenges facing me. I felt most of them were out of my control. No longer feeling the pressure of driving I started to talk. This was a sweet release. I emptied my belly of the stress. After that, we rode home in silence.

Sleeping late the next day, I had a full day to rest. The house was quiet. A dark moment to mediate. I realize that the constant emotion of anxiety had resurfaced.

When I feel I have no control over the situations in my life anxiety raises its head. The difference now I can process the feelings, see the truth of the situation, realize what I can control and let go of expectations, be at peace and release the feeling, like looking at a friend walk away, waving till she’s out of sight.

That powerful sentiment I received yesterday. A gift from the universe that was bestowed upon me. I graciously accepted and released the emotion not calling it my own.

When we think the world objectively exists independent of ourselves, we are distorting our image of the world, which is a process by which we can’t help but simultaneously distort our image of ourselves, because we are inescapably part of the world.

We can then easily remain unaware of the creative power within us wherein lies our potential gift to the world.

 

How can you tap into the creative force inside of you?

Imagine a force

that you can control.

with your thoughts

you remake yourself

into anything you choose.

your gift to the world is inside of you.

The W.E.N. Network is

the guiding impulse that believes

in the power of you.

together we can make this land

Heaven on earth.
