This is it
I am leaving wordpress after 5 years of poetry

It has been wonderful
But enough is enough

If you want to stay in touch and follow my poetry
You can find me on substack

My subscription will run until the end of this month and then expire.

Thank you so much for following me, liking my poems and paying some attention.
The poetry is not stopping, only my chosen and preferred platform.
I still do all my poetry free and substack is no different.

So if you fancy continuing the journey jump on.
Otherwise be well and be blessed.

Discovering inner truth
Intuition and gut feeling
A deep instinct about things
And a wisdom that supports
That inner knowing

Is the only true authority we need
It is our connection to ourselves
To each other, to nature
And to God

Once discovered we must each find a way
To live from that deeply profound place
No matter what happens.

    If you truly believe
    In your deepest instinct
    In your heart of hearts
    In your innate wisdom
    That we are divine beings
    Connected to all that is
    With inner authority
    And imbued with a magnificence
    Beyond the self that is
    Conditioned to smallness
    And held captive by fear

    Now is the time to live that knowing
    Not sometime in the future
    When it feels more comfortable
    Or you feel more awake or aware
    Or more confident and secure

    But now
    For there is dramatic change taking place
    In every quadrant of the universe
    And within each living cell
    Of each living being
    And within the fabric of reality itself

    And you, and I, are being called
    To embrace the transformation
    And live from the truth we know
    And the love we are

    We are not not passengers
    We are leaders and participants.

    As though it matters
    As though we matter
    As though everything we do
    And everything we say
    And everything we are
    Is some kind of prayer

    ‘May I be at one with nature
    May I be at one with all that is,
    Not above or below anything else,
    Walking harmoniously in the world.’


    There is a revolution happening
    IN YOU

    The door has always been there, throughout time,
    But always it has been a partially shut door
    We had to squeeze through
    To discover our true nature
    And our one compassionate heart

    That door is now WIDE OPEN
    And freely available to all
    No need to squeeze through
    No privilege of enlightenment for the few

    Now it is possible for all
    Still it requires persistence,
    Surrender of the righteous belief system
    And a willingness to face ourselves

    But there is a revolution happening
    IN YOU

    Friend, this is the time, now, here, in the midst of this structural collapse
    Open your heart and mind
    Turn off the fear, and all the causes of fear
    And embrace your inner authority
    As the cosmic being you are
    Stop all activity that distracts you from your one true purpose, INNER REVOLUTION.

    Those who does not know themselves
    Cannot discern the difference
    Between the snake oil seller
    And the wise one
    And will often follow the snake oil seller
    Because their persuasive techniques
    Appeal to the unmet emotions
    Still held in the unexamined and unconscious system

    Wisdom is not quite so easily fooled

    We are in the intensity of those times.

    To have a vision that drives you, or pulls you
    But to live each day
    As though it is an entire life
    Fully and without holding anything back

    This is the essence of the modern warrior

    The birth, the life, and the death
    In the microcosm of a day
    What more teaching is there.

    The Dancer and the Danced

    We are being danced
    Played and vibrated

    We have given ourselves an identity
    Given a name to the nameless we are

    A dancing pattern of particles
    Stardust gathered from the vast
    Circling an imperceptible black hole, a void
    At the center of our constellation

    We are a universe, each one a world unto ourselves
    Billions and billions of worlds
    Colliding, interacting,
    Drawing towards and repelling

    For one moment, cease giving a name to yourself
    Rest as the nameless one
    Be the dance

    In truth
    You are the player and the played
    The vibrator and the vibration itself
    Mesmerizing astonishing truth

    Don’t dumb yourself down
    By imagining you are just a small someone
    You are all that is
    Eternity gathered up as a unique expression
    What more do you want?

    How easily we can offer another
    Our opinion or insight
    How deftly our guidance
    Rolls off the tongue with such knowing

    Yet how difficult it is
    To just sit silently with another
    As they grieve or rage
    Or moan with confusion

    No, we are trained to be fixers
    And we do it to the best of our ability

    But when the other says
    ‘Stop trying to fix me,’
    We are lost, and affronted,
    And confused

    Largely because we have no capacity
    To be with ourselves
    Without trying to do the same thing.
