Self-fulfillment is Self-love

Building a Strong Inner LIfe through Poetry & Talk, Chronicle the Black Woman's Rise, Manifest 2017, Spiritual Awakening, The Great Awakening, Womanist Empowerment

Before you have something to give to others,

you must first give to yourself.

A kind of self-acceptance and 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.

 

Restore Our Connection To The World

Back to Nature, Building a Strong Inner LIfe through Poetry & Talk, Chronicle the Black Woman's Rise, Empowered Woman, Healing Arts, Monologue, Spiritual Awakening, Womanist Empowerment

Our lives have become disconnected from the source.

People’s well being have been given over for Power and Money.

Looking outside oneself for happiness and pleasure.

Will not suffice.

This hunger grows stronger each day.

Requires more and more.

Until we have gobbled up the earth.

Then we begin to feed upon the Human Soul.

Which has left a sort of Spiritual Poverty.

Which is worst than being poor.

A nation controlled by this force.

Seeks nothing but violence and war.

A machine driving our consciousness.

It is never to late to put on the brakes.

The Womanist Empowerment Network

Has her fingers on the Pulse.

Knows the value of Human Life.

How to restore the Human Spirit.

Breathe life into.

Restore!

Revive!

Bring back from death.

Live life with meaning and purpose.

Restore the Earth.

Fertilize the soil.

The lotus flower blooms.

From the murky waters of life.

How can you find solace and peace in a noisy world?

thrown in a storm of emotions;

filled with sorrow.

Looking for Peace.

A peace that settles your mind

Trying to stay warm.

And heal the wounds

of your Heart.

Inquiry

Chronicle the Black Woman's Rise, Empowered Woman, My Internal Life, Spiritual Awakening, Womanist Empowerment

The Inquiry
An Inquiry into the place where the Ego is absent and Life moves as a Graceful Dance!

The mind is afraid because it holds onto concepts and feelings inside a limited concept of the personal self. It passes judgement, lives in fear, languishes in anger, hopelessness and despair.

To merge with the great ocean of life would be a dissolution of the false sense of self. So the Ego clings, holds onto what isn’t real, like sand running through your fingers, there’s nothing to hold onto so anxiety and fear take hold.

I know it’s the familiar and what’s known.
But an inquiry into the Nature of the present is like watching the tide ebb and flow, merging with the present is like disappearing into the vast deep ocean.

You are as the substance of the ocean, able to swim in the deep, able to flow with the waves and Be as a drop of water that joins with the Sea.

How to Make a Slave of the Self

Building a Strong Inner LIfe through Poetry & Talk, Chronicle the Black Woman's Rise, Empowered Woman, Monologue, Spiritual Awakening, The Great Awakening, Womanist Empowerment

This life is for
Winning Freedom back from
The conditioning of making a Slave of the Self.

This nation,
Was built on slavery by
The so called
“ruling elite”.
Who made a slave of itself.

The white man manifested
What he was trying to escape.

He imagined a division between
Black and White.
And lived and perpetrated
This lie,
And made
Humanity believe.

This belief in duality,
Seeped in religion.
Preached on Sunday
Forgotten on Monday.

Is an escape into Personhood
I’ll conceived and toxic to the self.

Come back to the Natural self
Where real experience unfolds
In the “I Am”.

Understanding: A Spiritual Practice

The effortless way, by way of the heart
How to transcend your conditioning.

People generally believe that the way they view the world is the correct way to see.

With awareness you come to understand that each religion, each personal view shows us something else and from different angles so that our development and our understanding becomes Universal.

On the Spiritual Retreat you are guided in a way to let go of the need to be right and the self- righteous mindset of the Ego.

You become aware of the unchanging nature of the self and experience a boundless freedom. Independent of what is going on around you.

You are in the center watching as molecules hover, you stay centered with the knowledge that you are the observer.

As the inner world become grounded, you see from the perspective that we are all the same, wanting life and happiness.

The Psychological Mind

Building a Strong Inner LIfe through Poetry & Talk, Chronicle the Black Woman's Rise, Empowered Woman, Monologue, Spiritual Awakening, Virtual Retreat, Womanist Empowerment

VCAFEThe Psychological Mind
Tries to control life
And how everything should be.

Riding on the wind
Without an anchor
Tossed about
Living life recklessly.

Caught up in the
Personal story
You tell your self
Deriving life from
Your attention
Interest
And belief.

Who is this Mind’s servant
Doing and believing
Everything it tells you,
Who is the mind talking to?

The Psychological Mind can intimidate and be a tyrant to the person
But has no influence on
The True Self.

You must transcend
The personal aspect of mind
If you want to be happy and free

Give little importance to
The Psychological Mind
Just be.

You may ask,
Who will I be?

Self-Inquiry

Building a Strong Inner LIfe through Poetry & Talk, Chronicle the Black Woman's Rise, Monologue, My Internal Life, Spiritual Awakening, Womanist Empowerment

Inquiring into the Nature of my being
and the nature of “God”.
One single thing.

I wake to the sounds of the dog
Scratching at the bars of his cage.

For a moment
I lie in darkness
Tiny lights flicker from a statue.
So I can see.

What time is it?
I always wonder
Feeling better if I’ve slept
A full night.

No, it’s three in the morning.

Before I get out of bed
I slink back into myself
Like a turtle back into his shell.

Thoughts flood my mind
Like the moonlight
On a dark starless night.

I’m everything.
The words come from a place
Deep inside of me.

I’m Oprah, Obama,
Dr King,
Daishiki,
Even Trump.
These thoughts lay gently within me.

Into the arena of Inquiry
I ascend.

A search for the truth
As it appears to me,
Raw and naked
Open and unashamed.

This life is one single thing,
Expressed as everything.

The left and the right of my brain merge into a whole.
I see God at work in everything.

I open my eyes
Wake from the hypnosis and conditioning
Let the dog out of his cage.

We step into the crisp morning air
So we both can feel a sense of relief.
