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.

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.

 

The Working of Your Unconscious Mind

Like an iceberg, most of what you are is submerged below the surface.

If you look closer through a clear mirror you will see.

I gaze through the crystal blue lake and see the massive ice chunk under the blue.

If you look only at the surface you will never see the beauty of the inner world.

Under the sea, deep in a cavern below is where exotic creature live.

In the unconscious mind, which is summered inside of you houses the mysteries of the world. Like taking an expedition through the many layers of the earth. To reveal the core. The hot molten lava, churning. A fire burns inside of you like a hunger. You feed it many things, but not what it really wants. This unconscious mind wants you to discover its secrets. Take a look and see the brilliance. Like looking at the night sky. Millions of tiny stars twinkle. All universes onto themselves. You are a micro of the great universe. Stop acting small. Understand every thought, deed and word is held in the unconscious, even the events of the world, which is a collective unconscious. Split apart the large mountain into tiny rocks, look at them under a microscope to determine what they are. You have power to remake your life and the world.

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.

Inquiry

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.
