The Implacable Sea...



Live I the implacable sea
A flowing spirit lies within
Know I the tides of change
This the cresting wave of BEING.
thoughts that probe the depths of existence
waves that crest the longings of the heart
oceans that flow with the knowing grace of soul
perceptions from time eternal
this inner call that echoes from the core of self
ever present passion, quest, a knowing divinity
listen, heed the resounding implacable sea within
the light of mind, the sounding of heart, the PRESENCE of BEING.

A R I E S...



A R I E S... the Ascension, the Revelation, the I AM Presence, the Eternal Spring, the Spirit of Being ... 
I of this birth, I of this consciousness... Rose Marie Raccioppi

"ARIES (March 21-April 20) in the celestial zodiac coincides with Spring on Earth. It is the time when seeds have been planted, the soil has been irrigated, and seedlings begin to form. Like these young plants beginning their cycle of growth, Aries begins the zodiac cycle. It is a young sign, the sign of beginnings. Some call it the "me first" sign, because the basic and primary energy is directed to the self. Aries likes to win, to place first, and come out smelling like a rose when the hue and cry of battle subsides. Aries loves the challenge and does not back away from a good fight. This sign is, in this respect, quite fearless. Aries is symbolized by the Ram, that creature that batters its head against anything in its way. Natives of this sign are noted for their aggressive ways, their leadership qualities, and a certain take-charge manner. Aries loves the contest while it's ongoing and has a real interest in the outcome, too! Frequently called the "pioneer sign" of the zodiac or the sign of new starts, Aries is competitive, forceful, strong, courageous, and constantly on-the-go, with a seemingly endless supply of energy. "I am," cries Aries, for in this sign is born the awareness of individuality."  https://www.dellhoroscope.com/learn/

"The words for "ram" and "soul" sounded the same in Egyptian so ram deities were at times regarded as appearances of other gods.[2]"


The Petals... The Thorns...I the ROSE...




"And all shall be well and.. All manner of thing shall be well.. 
When the tongues of flame are in-folded.. Into the crowned knot of fire.. 
And the fire and the rose are one.” T.S. Eliot

I the Fire, I the Rose

the fire, the petals, the passions of creation
the light of the PRESENCE
brilliant be the towering flames
horrifying be its consuming fury
the rose, the gentle warmth of the glowing fire
the rose, the wrath of its piercing thorn
know I each as one and one as each
I the rose, I the fire
the passion, the pain, the PRAISE.

"The rose, by virtue of its beauty, shape and scent, has become the most commonly used floral symbol in the West. Angelus Silesius took the rose for an image of the soul. Once the insignia of ancient Goddesses, it was revealed to be of cosmic import, a semblance of divine power in its feminine splendour. It is in effect the symbol of the Divine Mother, and thus symbolises the chalice of life and love that is the soul. To gaze at the heart of a rose is to contemplate the truest living mandala. To look on this mystic centre is to be in the presence of holiness. "The rose each ravished sense beguiles", wrote Sappho, who called the rose the Queen of Flowers. A symbol cherished by our ancestors that has been handed down over millennia yet has power to move our spirits."

As words make themselves deeply known by the meaning and vibration of each letter, the consciousness mind as well as the subconscious mind are brought into play. So too, when we view a work of art. Poetry, our Spirit in expressive sound, Artistry our Spirit in expressive light...




Flutter...Flutter...Frivolity

In the darkest hour before dawn
Awaken I to feathered voices
Sweet flirtations to court the new day
Heard be the fluttering of wings
Robins red breasted
Frivolity fills my chambers
And blushed be the hour.

As too a crystal...


As too a crystal sphere
We all days past in present light
As too a crystal sphere
We of earth, fire, water, air
As too a crystal sphere
We the embodiment of time and change
As too a crystal sphere
We the depths of forces in revelation
As too a crystal sphere
We the consciousness of creation.

Counsel of Ancient Be Known




Counsel of Ancient Be Known

Sounding be the wisdom beckoning to my soul
A knowing from SPIRIT be the blessings told
THOTH in consciousness ever so wise
Ascension to TRUTH, banished be lies
Fear no longer to have its hold
FAITH be VALOR, TRUTH noble and bold
Purpose and intention in vision and deed
The GOOD of humanity be the resounding creed
The Emerald Tablets of THOTH, counsel of ancient be known
TRUTH and FORBEARANCE the NOW in WISDOM shown.

"That which is Below corresponds to that which is Above,
and that which is Above corresponds to that which is Below,
to accomplish the miracle of the One Thing."
The Emerald Tablet of THOTH
Tablet 11
The Key to Above and Below
"List ye, now to my voice and become
greater than common man.
Lift thine eyes upward,
let Light fill thy being,
be thou ever Children of Light.
Only by effort shall ye grow upward to
the plane where Light is the All of the All.
Be ye the master of all that surrounds thee.
Never be mastered by the effects of thy life.
Create then ever more perfect causes
and in time shalt thou be a Sun of the Light
Free, let thine soul soar ever upward,
free from the bondage and fetters of night.
Lift thine eyes to the Sun in the sky-space.
For thee, let it be a symbol of life.
Know that thou art the Greater Light,
perfect in thine own sphere,
when thou art free.
Look not ever into the blackness.
Lift up thine eyes to the space above.
Free let thine Light flame upward
and shalt thou be a Child of the Light."

You are the artist ~ An Awareness Wise...


You are the artist, and your life is your creation. It's your story. It's your comedy or drama, and if your story is changing anyway, then why not direct the change with awareness?
You have all our love.

And so in poetic dialogue...

An Awareness Wise

what be this awakening sweet

where grace and intention meet

what be this thunderous sounding in heart

where all that is has its knowing start

what be this soaring of spirit and soul

where vision is one with heart and goal

this be the Self, the TRUTH to embrace

where all that is blessed in knowing I place

where judgment, reprisal, illusion and demise

be cast aside by Spirit, an awareness wise

beyond the drama and lies yet heard

is the beloved glory of the divine WORD

joyful gratitude to fill my days

so be the embodiment of SELF in PRAISE.
