That Language

That Language

I don’t Speak the Language

of Violent and Vengeful Hate,

having lived Many Lives

of Differing Perspectives

seen from both sides

of so many Human Conflicts,

those Closed and Divisive Gates.

I do Understand how even

Righteous Anger often turns

into Uncontrolled Rage,

that Mindless Fire that burns

Hearts and Minds of many a Soul

in Savage Actions and Reactions,

that Primitive Language of Hate

creating many a Hellish State

in Times both Past and Present.

We can Understand

yet Choose Not to Partake,

Choose Not to Participate,

Choose Not to Communicate

in the Language of Violence

and Words of burning Hate.

We can Educate

ourselves and others

to Speak the Language

of a Higher Vision

of our Humanity

beyond Voices of Division,

beyond Illusions of Supremacy

that create Disunity,

Pain, Destruction and Death.

Love of Life Itself, All Life,

is the Highest Wisdom

and the Language

all True Masters know.

We can Learn how

to Speak That Language too.

What would such Love do now?

What do we Choose To Be

in this Life of Here and Now?

Aggression

Aggression

We’ve seen it all before,

an escalating War

for Aggression we can’t ignore,

Nations joining their Arms

against the Threat and Might

of Warlords, Hitlers, Putins…

Man-Puppets of Dark Forces

harvesting Energy

through all that ever Harms.

It’s Ancient History

and Modern Technology.

It’s the Dead Ghosting

and Humans Hosting

Dead Fighters Fighting On

indifferent to pain

or any Resource gain.

Again, History repeats

in Victories and Defeats.

How do they go away,

those Dead who Fight to Stay,

those true Aggressors

in Man Misusing Power?

‘Angels of God’s Heaven,

thank you for your Presence.

We ask in their names

whatever they may be,

those who can’t or won’t

ask for themselves,

take them back to the Light,

to Prime Source, to Heaven.

There’s nowhere else to go,

there’s nothing else to do

but just Let Go

for Rest and a Fresh Start,

to Continue On through

to New Beginnings…

We give them back to the Light.

Amen. Amen. Amen’

Many scoff that the Dead

who they Dismiss or Dread,

can still be in our 3D World

but even they see Dark Forces

at play in Irrational Actions,

in Insane Aggressions

that tear apart our World.

Sometimes even the Meek

will Pray and then Fight

to live in a Peaceful World

when Aggression rules Man’s Heads

destroying our Wondrous World.

In these Observations,

I may well be Mistaken.

Am I here now seeing

another Great World War???

My Vancouver Island Shawl

This Shawl began as a Scarf I designed in 2017 and perhaps finished yesterday.

My Vancouver Island Shawl

This is a revised creation I call

my Vancouver Island Shawl.

It will keep me snuggly warm

as when my Husband Lover’s arms

wrapped around me in embraces,

those youthful, Not Forgotten Days

‘midst Northern Ontario wilderness.

That Lovely Land of Lakes and Rivers

saw many a hug and a kiss

as I now fondly recall.

I am drawn to quote myself

of something I once wrote:

She Said To Him…

Come lie with me on the soft green moss

in the heat of this summer’s day

and I’ll give you delicious, impassioned kisses

to take your breath away.

Let Nature witness our wild love-sport

among the spruce and pines-

hunting rare ecstasies with our senses-

tracking each other’s pleasure signs.

Deep, desperate growls and surrendering moans

will guide us on our way,

bringing us stealthily toward the unity

of Love predator and prey.

Now those Days are long gone.

With my Memories, I Moved On.

I know I am where I Belong.

Once again, I gained through loss.

Everywhere I look it seems

the fulfillment of strange dreams,

the kind I can’t ignore.

I’ve known this Island long before

I was This Version of my Soul…

Is my Poem finished? I don’t know.

Note- the poem ‘She Said To Him’ was written in August 1996 and revised in April 2014

I Once Believed

I Once Believed

I once believed in a God of Contradictions, a Parent Almighty, a Loving Creator God of Unlimited Power who was Powerless to Make Humans Obey, especially Women, a God who Needed the Help of Men to Fight Ancient and Modern Wars, to Obey and Kill on Command, Obedient to Commandments and Punishing Laws, a God of Wrath.

I once believed in a God of Sacrifice, a Death Dealing God who Required us to Demonstrate Obedience through our Self Sacrifice and the Sacrifice of our Loved Ones, especially the Innocents, the Child, the Children of God, Sons and Daughters of Man, the countless Sacrifices of Harmless Animals to a Primitive God still worshipped by many.

I once believed in a God of Rewards and Punishments, Rewards of Heaven, of Paradise, for Blind Faith and Blind Obedience, for the Right Genes, the Right Religion, the Chosen, the Elect, the Superior Few- a God of Jealousy, Vengeance and Cruelty to All Others- the Unbelievers, the Infidels, the Heretics, People of the Wrong Religion or Race or Politics, the Wrong History and Geography, the Wrong Beliefs, a Very Exclusive and Elitist God.

I once believed in a God who used Angels (those Humans and Extraterrestrials) with powerful Weapons to Destroy whole Cities, even the Children too- Innocent Infants, Toddlers and Teens, Children of Men and Women in the Wrong Place at the Wrong Time (Collateral Damage), Justified Death, Horrific Killing for Power and Control of Earth. Was it they who told us about the Horrors of Hells? I wonder.

I once believed in a God of Retribution, a God of Karma Making us, Forcing us, to Return Again and Again until we Got It Right, until we Outgrew our Unacceptable Behaviours, our Sins born of Ignorance that Mother of Evils, until we finally Saw the Light in our Meditations and Prayers or through our Devotions, Adorations and Rituals Considered Needed to Get It Right, Enlightened At Last.

I walk in the Wonder of Life Itself Letting Go of anything Less than Pure Love and True Freedom, those Other Names for God…

I Wonder

I Wonder

I wonder about many things- things beyond my intellectual and emotional comprehension as well as those things I think and feel that I understand in some small measure.

‘How great Thou art’ I often say to Life, to God Present in the Essential Nature of Every Being and in Every Atom of Everything, in the Forces and Elements of Nature and in the Great Mystery Beyond Everything- the Great Oneness of It All.

I wonder about ‘big things’ and ‘small’.

This morning I was wondering about our Human uses of Earth’s Resources. Where would we be in our Technologies of Information and Communication, our Technologies of Transportation, our Manufacturing and Distribution of so much of our Building Materials, our Furniture, our Adornments, our Medical Technologies, our Food Production, our Basic Needs and Comforts and Entertainments that we enjoy- if not for Mining whether judged by some as ‘exploitations’ or ‘wise use’ by others? How would we be living without our Mining Industries?

Even more ‘Technologically Primitive’ Civilizations Mined to create Weapons and Utensils, Mining from Earth’s Resources too. How would they have lived without Mining?

When we are Mining the Moon, the Asteroids and the Planets, like Mars, how will Humanity benefit? Will very few benefit, as it is today? Or, will our Insatiable Need for Weapons to solve Problems, resulting in Extensive and Irrational Inventories of Weapons with the Profiting Need for their Use so more can be made, work to create our End? Will we create better Solutions through Spiritual Evolution of Understandings and Actions before we Self-Destruct? I wonder.

We are Complex Creatures, even more Complex than our present Machines, though A.I. in Machines is Advancing rapidly with our help- to the Point where it may soon go Beyond Serving us into Completely Ruling us. Our Creation, our Machine World, may Replace us Bit By Bit, Part By Part. We may laugh and scoff now, but what will we Become?

Where are we heading as we ‘Advance’, as we Move Forward? How will we Change Direction if we don’t like where we’re headed? How do we Navigate a Path Between Extremes?

As Individuals, we just pop in and out of Life Here on Earth. Where is our Collective Free Will of Humanity- as a Species of Human Animals and as Spirits in God-given Flesh- taking us?

In this Century, we have Almost taken some Exits from Life Here, as has happened with other Species. That Potential is now with us every single Day through those in Power (elected or not) as well as through Transformations of the Planet Itself creating Its Own Solutions.

In some Timelines, we’re all no longer here. I wonder what the Story of This Timeline will be?

Transformations

Transformations

Earth transforms now and then

dramatically or little by little

when land masses slip and slide.

We’re just along for the ride.

We’re each here for a little while

as individuals and as species too.

Sometimes we even return

and continue our Great Adventures

evolving fast or slow as we do,

Star-Seeded again by Life

both here and by Life beyond

our Planet, Alien Interventions,

some of which we fear

as hostile or even divinely benign.

We’re all just passing through

this realm of joy and pain,

Souls on a Great Adventure,

Life’s experience to gain.

Some seek comforts in safe havens,

others seek danger to feel alive.

Some feast on their desires,

others struggle to survive.

Divine Creations, we evolve

by thought and deed and consequence,

paths well worn or those less travelled.

Attitude rules Circumstance.

Some are challenged by misfortune,

loss of all that’s valued here,

stripped of everything but Spirit,

Love expressed in those held dear.

We weep our own and others’ losses,

seeking answers as we pray.

None can judge the Soul’s Agenda

as we journey on our way.

We’re all just passing through.

A Unity Diverse…

We’re Life in many forms

throughout the Universe.

Here for a little while,

we travel in and out of Time

exploring Life Itself,

the mundane and sublime.

Our Lives are wondrous Journeys.

We challenge ourselves to grow,

exploring all conditions

through which we come and go.

Nothing here is forever.

We must leave it all behind.

Back to Source All Beings go,

beyond the limits of Mind-

beyond boundaries of Soul-

back to the Great Oneness we go,

that Oneness we call Heaven-

the God-Light and our True Home.

From and to Home we come and go

playing out our Great Adventures,

transforming Life as we know it,

creating realities loving or fearful

in multiple Timelines and Roles

or making another Free Will Choice-

Not Going Out and Staying Home.

Hell

Hell

It’s amazing to me

how Humans and E.T.s

create new visions

and new versions

and endless repeats

of states or places

we deem as ‘Hell’.

It’s amazing to me

how Humans and E.T.s

create and send

those we deem

as our Enemies

to places and situations

we all can see

made real as ‘Hell’.

I love the old story

buried in Scriptures

where before Jesus

ascended to Heaven

he ‘released the prisoners’

and so cleaned up

and cleared out ‘Hell’.

From that story I see

how Compassion

demonstrates Mastery,

most especially

to those called ‘Enemy’,

not creating and wishing

and sending them

to any version

we deem as ‘Hell’.

It’s amazing to me

how we Humans and E.T.s,

in physical forms or not,

still even judge ourselves

to experience ‘Hells’

through our beliefs

and misunderstandings

handed down through

earliest evolutions

and ideas about God.

May we release

those ‘prisoners’ too-

ourselves and others-

moving into Self-Mastery,

evolving our understandings,

cleaning up and clearing out

modern and primitive

visions and versions

of places and states

we’ve made real as ‘Hell’.

Awake, Aware, Alive

Awake, Aware, Alive

(Friend or Foe, Dead or Alive

by our Definitions,

thanks for being here

as I journey through Galaxies,

Ethereal, Astral, Physical,

through Destinations and Destinies

appearing solid and daunting

on a Ship of Questions to Remember

what it means To Be Truly Free.)

Are we truly Awake, Aware, Alive

or are our days merely a dream,

a haze, a maze of perceived illusions,

mistaken assumptions, erroneous conclusions,

distortions and confusions

about Life, about God, about Us?

Are we truly Awake, Aware, Alive?

From Childhood on, are we fed

and educated by our systems,

our families and societies

in what may by some be called

our Local Prejudices and Propagandas-

Cultural, Political, Religious-

as Blinders and Binders

through which we view

Life and God and Us?

Are we truly Awake, Aware, Alive?

Do we really know how Life works,

how Interconnected, how Interdependent

everything is everywhere

in The Larger View, The Grander Vision-

of this Universe, the Earth and even

The Great Beyond- Life Beyond Death

connecting All, including you and me?

Do we see how we’re part

of this multilayered Universe

of particles, waves and densities,

consciousness and frequencies,

even this Earth, this World

of waters and lands, elements and animals,

trees and plants and All That Is?

Do we understand even now

how our Well Being is Interconnected,

Interdependent, part of the All

and as we do to This, we do

to ourselves as well?

Are we truly Awake, Aware, Alive?

How do we Awaken to Oneness?

How do we Live in Awareness?

How do we value Life and being Alive?

How do we state, demonstrate,

to the All who we each are?

Who do we choose to be?

In large or small measure,

what do we contribute to Life

whether selfish or selfless?

Who do we think we are?

Do we see Life as a Name for God,

Life Itself and Freedom too?

Do we see Life in Us as Us,

a Process, a Force, an Energy

constantly moving, changing,

sustaining, recreating ever

in every Here and Now?

Do we see Life Itself Present,

Alive in Us, as Us, as All

even when some are not truly Sentient-

Awake, Aware, Alive?

I seek out New Definitions.

I leave Lesser Truths behind.

(So here I am enjoying the journey

on a ship of Questions flying

Beyond my past understandings

of Life As It Is into Mystery

and what it means To Be Truly Free.

Thanks One and All for joining me!)

Our Future

Our Future

We are adventurous Spirits

living our ordinary, extraordinary lives,

Spirits and Beings of Light

from the Source of All That Is

informing in forms of bodies-

waves and particles and spaces-

each a Universe in itself.

We are adventurous Spirits

living our ordinary, extraordinary lives,

Spirits and Beings of Light

from the Source of All That Is,

Souls with Energy Fields

moving and merging with others,

our Thoughts and Feelings as Frequencies

that resonate or not with others too.

We create and co-create with God

and Beings Not of This World-

other adventurous Spirits

creating our Religions and Realities,

exploring Sciences, Arts, Philosophies

and whatever we all can do.

We create our own versions of What Is,

our own Heavens and Hells

as states of being, forgetting our Selves

through Fears and Fantasies

imagined and then made real.

We are all creating our Future

be it through Love or Fear

with Thought and Emotion Energies

impacting all we hold most dear

and Life as we know it here.

Win or lose Our World To Come,

we all will Continue On

for we are adventurous Spirits,

all loved and cherished by God.

Love, Joy and Peace

My Christmas Eve prayer is simply this:-

May our Love flow through and beyond

our temporary personality and mindset

to shine our Spirit’s wondrous Star-Light

of Christ-in-you, Life living as

the Way of Love.

May our Joy be the Remembering of

our Spirit, our True Nature, sacrificing

selfishness and self-interest in Caring,

Sharing and Good Will to All Beings as

living the Way of Joy.

May our Peace come through Respect

for Freedom and Freedoms, through

overcoming all Obstacles, Prejudices and

Misunderstandings about Life Itself, through

Respect for Life as both Unity and Diversity,

through Good Will as living

the Way of Peace.

Amen and Aumen.

Life On Earth

Life On Earth

How quickly our Sun-driven Time

flows here in Earth Rotations-

minutes, hours, months, years…

We work and play and fill our days.

We mark our days of birth,

even create Traditions to celebrate

or borrow some while making them our own.

From infancy, childhood, adulthood,

and old age, we Humans contribute

in our own ways to Life,

to the Whole of every Age where Life shows up,

to every Stage by our Species’ Nature grown.

We create and destroy Civilizations,

their Structures, Systems, Permutations.

Our Technologies have advanced

like those of many Worlds in Galaxies,

beyond what we now see,

serving Life or Death to be.

We stand on the Brink of Destruction,

of Life or Death, our Species, all Species

on our Home Planet World.

How we act and how we think

contribute to the Whole.

Fear and Hate serve Death and Destruction.

Love of All Life serves Life Itself.

Indifferent Weapons have no Soul.

What is our Life worth here?

What is our Species’ goal?

Are we now less Humane or more

than Puppets of E.T. Wars?

This Ochre Ribbon

This Ochre Ribbon

A mystery to me-

how did this ochre ribbon

come to rest upon my bed

when the sight on a site

of an ochre-robed monk

awakened memories

that lay sleeping peacefully

in my humble heart and head?

Where did it come from,

this ribbon tied at both ends

with ‘tales’ both short and long?

Long ago and far away,

we sat in reverent silence,

my ochre-robed Brothers and me,

our lives peaceful and serene,

disciplined, joyful simply to be

aware in the oneness of Life,

alive in the Light flowing free.

I recall the quiet contemplations,

the mystical prayers, the vibrations

of chants, the silent meditations.

This Now Version of me,

an old woman, a more worldly life,

still goes within now and then

but far less than when

I wore those ochre robes.

What have I learned/remembered

this Now Time around?

I am no victim ever

of this or any destiny.

I create and co-create it all-

every rise and fall and rise again…

I use the Wheel of Life

to Experience, to Evolve as I Revolve.

I choose it all, Ever Free

to stay Being in Perfect Oneness

or Forget my Self, then

venture forth and journey

through Wonders, Worlds, Adventures

Becoming even as this humble Human,

this Now Version, me

now holding this ochre ribbon,

a memory and mystery.

Written In Stone

Written In Stone

I do not write

my Words in stone

though they may be

by someone else,

not me.

Once my Words

were painted, chiseled,

carved, inscribed

in clay and stone

to speak to the Ages

for ancient versions

of me.

Once my Words

were penned and inked,

inked and metal-printed

onto treed pages

then scattered by winds

and breezes

like dead leaves

for another version

of me.

Now I search within

for Words Heart-Mined,

exploring Heart and Mind

that I might find

Words of worth

to share in Poetry

but would not wish them

written in stone

that they be free

to change and grow

with me.
