OMG … I’VE MISSED MYSELF

November 17, 2012

I lived for umpteen years as a daughter, a college kid,
a wife and mother, a working girl and a business woman …
in the art world, the candy making world, the international cultural exchange world …
coordinating, scheduling, organizing … always involved and steeped in the part I was playing … identifying with the part … that’s who I thought I was …

Shakespeare told us the world is our stage and many parts we play …
do we ever stop and look beyond the parts we’re playing! …
if I strip off all the costumes, the masks,
the paraphernalia that went with all of them … WHO AM I! 

Who was I before I was born … and who dies?
Who am I beyond that “me” … beyond all the changing parts …

What was there while all the parts were being played?
What is permanent … beyond the masquerade?

Have we ever paused long enough to ask? …
too busy with all the distractions we allow to consume our attention …

We get to a point, sooner or later, where our ever-present true identity …
through little glimpses of quiet insight … begins to come to light …

It’s been nudging us all along … but “we” were too tied up with a separate “me”…
trying to fulfill itself, to justify itself …
trying to fit into a world that it imagined was real …

 how glorious to stop and pause and see …
we’re awakening to our true capacity!

***

 GOD STANDING BY

Living out from a human sense of I
Leaves the image and likeness of God standing by
We’re functioning as finite mortal man
Excluding God completely from the plan
I and my Father are one … it must dawn
Unawareness of oneness can’t go on
God’s treasures are within us remaining stored
As long as our true identity is ignored
Behind the masks of “me” and “you”
Is the I of God we’re waking up to …

 Closer than breathing … nearer than hands and feet
Is our very own Essence that we constantly greet …

Namaste
xoxo

    thank you, dear Gina … “nudges” are everywhere …
    how wonderful to “see” them … the “I” is wide open …:)
    lots of love … xoxo
