“Naked and Unafraid”

images-8

“As the eagle, freed from its cage, soars to its native heights, so the soul, freed from the home of heavy flesh, will rise, and return unto its Father’s house, naked and unafraid.”

~ Ernest Holmes ~

The Science of Mind

Oh, to be unafraid in my nakedness

to be freed from worldly blunders

I face myself in a mirror

Am I the person I wanted to be while my feet walked the ground

or did I make excuses based on happenings?

Am I expressing the desires of my soul

or am I allowing a stranger

to guide my walk in this earthly plane?

Is it not our responsibility

to honor the authentic longings of our soul?

Shall we become imposters

living a reality with no road map

driving and making turns

based on other people’s directions?

No, not I!

Not any longer

I feel my passenger become the driver

I feel my soul rise up

and demand to be given the reins

Yes, sweet soul

I am sorry I delegated you to the role of onlooker

I thank you for your patience

But now that you have been given the opportunity to lead

I feel so free

I feel a heavy burden…

that of living someone else’s life

has been lifted

I bow to your feet

In perfect love

I honor your presence

and I will be your faithful servant

Oh, to live an authentic life…

naked and unafraid…

In this lifetime…

will be amazing

will be a gift!

We Never Stand Alone

2014-11-22 09.11.56

And sometimes

all we can do is have Faith

Faith that what is happening will bring us to the place that we are supposed to be

Faith that no matter how much it hurts now

there was a reason

Faith that after the sun sets

it will rise again tomorrow

And…

We never really stand alone

I Need Your Opinion…Please Vote for your Favorite

Hi everyone!  I need your help.  The following photos are groupings of decorative glass plates that will be hung on a wall.  They are quite large…approximately 6 feet wide by 4 feet high (the total grouping.)  I have moved these plates for a total of about 5 hours (and boy does my body know it!)

I have narrowed it down to the following four photos (down from the gazillion I looked at!) and would like to put it out there and see what grouping “talks” to you.  So…if you don’t mind…let me know which is your favorite.

And I can’t quite promise that I won’t put up the rest of the gazillion! :)

If Only…I Would

20141116_131903

If only I could reach through the clouds and touch you

I would wrap my arms around you

And tell you I love you

I would tell you that you are going to be okay

I would tell you that your heart will heal and that you will learn so much more about yourself.  I would tell you that you stretched your heart and that has given it the capacity to grow.  I know it hurts but it will enable you to go just as far in the other direction.  I would tell you that your little reindeer nose is cute, but that it doesn’t suit you. :)

If only I could reach across the miles and touch you

I would wrap my arms around you

And tell you I love you

I would tell you that you are going to be okay

I would tell you that God has chosen you – you worker of light – you wonder of love.  And through your struggles you will become stronger.  You will reach new heights and fly through the galaxies of newborn truth and understanding.  I know you are hurting now but you are so strong.

If only I could reach across your mind and touch you

I would wrap my arms around you

And tell you I love you

I would tell you that you are going to be okay

I would tell you that your need to be loved and noticed is already fulfilled from those on the outside and from our heavenly Father.  The only person missing from this list is the one who peers out from behind your eyes.   When that heart softens it’s judgment, the truth will be seen and you can relax and get back to doing good deeds.

If only I could drive 50 miles and touch you

I would wrap my arms around you

And tell you I love you

I would tell you that you are going to be okay

I would offer the meaning of a life that was wracked with struggle and I would soften the heart that feels persecuted.  I would hold your hand and gently walk into the truth…walk towards the light…and watch as your soul reached full understanding and accepted the love it was missing for eons.

Yes, if only I could reach you all

If only I could take away all the pain and put a smile on your faces

If only…

I would

Merry Go Round

2014-11-14-08-25-09-291175676

Merry go round

Until we go down

Spinning top

Boring a hole in the ground

Throwing pieces

Pieces that were me

But I’m not sure if they fit anymore

Ripped to the side

The side of reality

The side that was a dream

Or a nightmare

Merry go round

Until we go down

Spinning top

Boring a hole in my heart

Rip away the façade

The shell I used to protect me

But in reality

It only hid me from what’s good

Truth

Shoot me straight up

Catapult

Burst into the stars

Orbit

Flying free

Being me

Serenity

Merry go round

Forever I’m bound

To the truth of my soul

To the beauty of my journey

To the peace in my heart

Free

Eternity

Blessitude
