Higher Ground

We are the protagonist
Writing the “Story of our Lives.”
With blood as the ink.
We fill the page with
Sweat and tears,
Carving a path
As we move across the surface of the Earth.

Seeing the footprint left by others,
We keep a watchful eye!
But proceeding along
An authentic experience.

With firm conviction
And a lofty goal,
Step gently on the ground.

Often the way seems uncertain.
But with an internal guide
Who has an expanded vision,
Gently step onto the path
Meant for self.

Not what mother or fathers wants for you
Nor the social position
Society expects of you.

Blaze a fiery path
That burns through
Obstacles in your path.

Neither turning around
Or going back,
Those footprints have long been covered over.

You move over the horizon.
To the top of the mountain.
Seeing clearly as you coast downhill.

Be prepared to scale
Mountain upon mountain
As life always moves towards…
Higher Ground.

Day 12

Transformation

I live from my Highest Self
At home in the Buddha land
Each and Everyone
Has Awakened to their
Eternal “State of Being”,

I am alive in my own skin,
At Peace.

A light into the world,
Illuminating all the “Dark Matter”,
As it folds into it Self
And birth a “New Star”…

Transforming the negative
Into a positive force
That moves across the surface of the earth
Carving a Pathway to the Sun.

Day 6
Mindfulness Journal
At Home in Nature

A retreat into the vast inner realm of life.
There you’ll find an ocean of possibilities.
An acre of Greenland stretching out in front of you.

In the air a breeze of jasmine.
Sounds prick your earlobes with a sweet lullaby.

You go in a little deeper.
As if passing through the doorway cleanses your heart.

To its’ purest form.
You are like a baby,
Alive to everything around you.

A calm settles over you
Like a warm and soft blanket.
That blocks out the darkness
That you have carried for a lifetime.

Such a sweet release.

Your body a little lighter.
Each step a careful maneuver
Onto the soft wet grass.
Small strands tickle your toes.

You are at Home.
A slight wink from the sun
Opens your heart.

Filling you completely.
Joy seep out of your pores
As a profuse sweat.

Light surrounds you
You are loved and protected
In the arms of Mother Nature.

Day 2
Journey into Mindfulness                                                                                                           A Different Perspective of Fear!

Fear, the immobilizer
Grips the Mind.
Floods the senses with panic.

Your heart races,
The Mind
Imagines
All manners of harm.

You have lost all control.

We humans
With an ancestry DNA
Feel the fear
Of long ago.

Which has been passed down
Through your genes.

Like a monkey
Trapped in a corner
He senses danger
When the
Lion is out on the prowl..

Mindfully looking at fear
With a different perspective
Brings a mindful response.

There is nothing good or bad
But thinking
Makes is so…

Journey Into Mindfulness
A Daily Practice
In Poetry and Prose

Let go of the stress
Live in the moment.
Bring your awareness
To the sounds.

Focus on the hear and now.
Rather pain or pleasure
Go into the now.

Bring a loving awareness,
Do not run away
Or medicate.
Feel in.
Watch it
Like staring into the clouds.

Observe from a distance
See, hear, feel.
Awash in your senses
Makes you truly alive.

As the storm subside.
Make sense of what you’ve experienced,
With clarity and wisdom.

Learn to live in the pain
Rather that focus
On it all of the time.

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.

 

Self-Fulfilment

Building a Strong Inner LIfe through Poetry & Talk, Chronicle the Black Woman's Rise, Empowered Woman, Healing Arts, The Great Awakening 2016, Womanist Empowerment

There is a driving force within you.

A hunger that you try to fill,

you eat more

smoke more,

drink more,

But still the hunger remains.

This hunger is the need to…

reach your full potential as a unique human being.

Not a carbon copy,

but an original.

To live in this body

is a wonderful thing,

to experience a range of emotions,

to stand in awe

at what you have become

to gaze back over your life

see the joy and pain,

love and loss,

is a life well-lived.

How Can You Find Solace and Peace

A Seven Step Personal Transformation, Building a Strong Inner LIfe through Poetry & Talk, Chronicle the Black Woman's Rise, Empowered Woman, Healing Arts, Spiritual Awakening, The Great Awakening, Virtual Retreat, Womanist Empowerment

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

We are constantly bombarded;

thrown in a storm of emotions;

filled with sorrow.

Looking for Peace.

A peace that settles your mind

Steady you steps

Even though

They are uneven.

This winter seasons

Locked inside

Trying to stay warm.

Is the time

To

Go inside yourself

To see.

What at other times

Was not Visable

During the

Healing Arts Retreat

You will find

Safety and Security

As you begin to unfural,

Let down your guards.

Look at yourself

with Compassion and love

Take a honest look37709dd0-b6d8-4d28-9dec-5bfc4d7be890

And heal the wounds

of your Heart.

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.
