All of life is sacred
This ancient noble truth and aspiration
invites me to live more fully into my humanity.
Not deny the primal instinct killer beast
Shadow exists as potential within the human family.
Its not wise to deny the inner beast
I welcome my demons to the feast.
To alchemize and celebrate
And with awareness to venerate
The supreme miracle that is life.
Do we look in the mirror and love
Or despise our own reflection?
on any day we can always ask the question,
from where arise these extremely distorted mental projections?
The answers may surprise you.
As I track the distortion
Woven deep into my flesh
Each layer arising is welcomed
To be reframed, And to question
Every conditioned habit, identity and belief
Remembering that ultimately
each one is here to guide and teach me,
To relax more joyfully in peace.
So, I dismantle and dissolve
Whatever pathways of corruption
reveal how my mind
perceived the world’s patterns
of chaos and destruction.
Another deep breath
I return to my center and remember,
when I am triggered
is where awareness can enter.
I won’t turn against myself
based on mind’s narratives and lies,
nor the Somatic echos of my ancestors cries.
I acknowledge the deeply rooted primordial fears,
That have been trying to run the show for all of these years.
All the conditioned moral dogmatic shit
The “This or that” As I have lived and experienced it.
My mind still imposes all that crap
It is just not so easy to trick me into its trap.
But who is the passenger,
and who is the watcher?
Watching my movie through old and new eyes?
The genetic imperative cannot be denied.
the Spirit in the Form is inherently Wise.
The Nature has purpose and geometry,
As the vehicle for my soul’s trajectory.
The inbuilt mechanism driving evolution.
For generations past and future.
The life we are living is the revolution.
Together, we are the change and the solution.
And the change begins with looking within.
Within the form the shift can begin
It helps me to remember that the Form is Quantum.
And it takes energy and effort to awaken
What once was quite numb.
I release and recode
what’s up for transformation today
Through the living art
and ceremony of life at play.
Life, as the prayer praying me, I see
I’ve played my role perfectly.
It’s all way beyond my ordinary human perception.
Every seeming mistake and transgression,
Is it divine design? The cosmic plan in action?
For me, there is only ever the Great Truth of Perfection.
This is what it looks like….
To be alive on the planet today
And walk the Supreme Noble Path of The Way.
Aligned with love, wisdom and light,
Heart like a lantern in my chest glowing bright.
Life humming golden within every cell.
I sit in discomfort
For as long as required.
Surrendered in trust with deep self compassion,
watering seeds of transcendent awareness and correct action.
No more will I be hypnotized
Or seduced into forgetting,
that any change I wish to see
begins right here at home with me.
It’s all part of the elegant equation,
together, building a new foundation.
Our systems need time for assimilation and integration.
In order to uplevel adaptability,
awaken dormant frequencies,
and open to receive magnetically,
All of life’s shadow and brilliance with equanimity,
To be filtered and transmuted through the love in our systems indiscriminately.
children need protection. You see?
Do No Harm is not a myth
It comes from lived experience
For when you harm a sister or brother
You harm yourself, you harm your Mother.
And all sentient beings are our mother throughout the great expanse of time and existence.
I will not look away
From the atrocities being displayed
And the total lack of regard
for the preciousness of life
happening in our world today.
As the perceiver who is looking in the mirror,
living in the organic texture of the now,
water seeds of hope with grace.
Sunlight of awareness
I invite you to see with me
blossoming in every cell
throughout existence and space.
This body this world
This mysterious interface,
between inner and outer,
Heaven and Earth,
where the Ground is ever turned
for renewal and rebirth.
