The Big Elephant, Boglivia and Myele

Sweetness fills the air with another coming to presence
"Hello, Myele, we are so glad you have come to share with us."
Your presence enwraps us all with a particular mellowness
While lifted with a sense of suspense and intrigue
In a way that seems to establish an accord
Than runs through us all.

There is a tingle in the air, an excitement that lingers on
While the refreshing scent of being permeates this abode
There are whispers in the air of something amazing come to be
As well as venaculars unattended to explode in surprise
On certain levels of energy equations that have been disbursed.
And all the while visions awaiting.

In the meantime, all circling in accord, holding the space.
Continuing the energies that are swirling in an upward rise
In the Vortex of Occurance in this moment
Lifting all energies to the level of understanding and awareness
That we are all combining to get to "The One".
Then, realizing that we are all "The One".

As we continue along the inference of "The Spiral"
So do the energies enwrap us to ever exhange
And continue, in the moment, with one Accord...
Listen now, to the depths of the heart's knowing
And rise to the moment of reckoning....

This is it...we are here....

Love, Deb

I was sauntering upon the plain
When an impression came over me
I raised my head and listened
There was a soft voice that said,
"Look around you, feel the energies,
Walk amongst those that surround you
And listen. Let your heart discern from
Whence these others come."

It was then that I realized that I only
Had a portion of experience in my own
Existance and that I certainly needed to
Open my heart and ears and eyes to
The others that surrounded me in my
Day to day experience of this life and
The way that we all throw ourselves
Through it without much thought or
Consideration.

I realized, it was time that I gave some
Consideration to how I am choosing to
Live my life and how I am allowing myself
To Perceive of those around me. It was
Then that a Big Red Flag said, "NO MORE
JUDGEMENT." It was like I suddenly woke up.
And I started to "Listen" without judgement.
I started to "Feel" without judgement.

It was then that I truly heard.
And in the hearing, the voice that was yearning
To be heard, was "ME".............

Love, Deb

More wisdom from the bottomless fountain of the BE :)
I so love it.

I observe more and more (like the Neil Diamond song) many
are and have been opening up their "Heart Lights" and "seeing"
beyond what is physical ... recognizing that each path will
eventually lead to the same place.

It is often said that we are mirrors reflecting back to each other
what we need to recognize in ourselves. Isn't it interesting that
when we judge another, it blinds us; yet, if we listen and feel
without judgment, it magically assists us in discerning old thought
patterns that no longer serve us.

I appreciate each thought provoking piece that has been written,
especially lately. They are really getting to the "core" if you
know what I mean.

Love...Peg

The Big Elephant lifted her head and turned to listen.
What she heard was a tender voice that presented
Itself in the form of an echo that reverberated the land.
The Big Elephant listened, listened, listened.

It is a time of listening, being totally open to listen
To that which is being presented without pause
Over and over again the stimulus comes
And we are once again presented with this cause.

The Big Elephant then planted the crown of her head
Against the root of the Tree of the Baobab and nudged
The one into being so as to be in union with the energies
That the Baobab provided. There sprang forth a mist.

And in this mist came forth a pulsing energy that presented
A mature knowing of significance to obtain therein what is given
A short but sweet significance is given to stand and hold that
Which is obtained within its ownself and spread forth.

Therein, in this moment was presented a total inhaling of the breath
Of a new idea of the way of being, breathing deeper, the stance remains
And then the fog clears and the ones can see that all along
They were standing exactly where they needed to be.

Love, Deb

Mother Baobab
 
1 Attachment(s)
The BigTree – Part 8
3nov12 by Peg

Mother Baobab was enjoying her day
feeling the warmth of the nourishing Sun
and appreciating the balance offered
by the cooling breezes of the Air
as it gently swirled through her leaves

She marveled at the simplicity of this moment
as she relaxed into the joy of just Being
who she is, as she is

And in this state of wonderment
she thought of her friend, The Big Elephant
whom she hasn't seen in quite a while
Even though Mother Baobab thought of her friend daily
she missed her friend's companionship

With keen understanding, the Air sensed Mother Baobab's thoughts
and with a smile, the Messenger Air carried these thought forms
over the land, bringing them to every distant corner
while covering all in between…

It seemed like no time had passed at all
as Mother Baobab felt the familiar vibration upon the ground
and smiled in excitement to see her friend, The Big Elephant
ambling toward her down the path, trumpeting her hello

How glorious it felt when The Big Elephant
wrapped her trunk around her in a big hug
No better greeting is more welcomed than that!
With the help of the wind, Mother Baobab
dipped her leafy branches down and
softly patted The Big Elephant's back in a return hug

The two friends spent a while catching up
on each other's experiences since their last visit
and then the two shared their latest knowings
happily discovering that each, in their own way,
continue to expand their awareness, perfectly in sync

"Isn't it a wonder" said Mother Baobab
"that no matter what we are going through in the present,
if we take a moment to just breathe and connect with our Center,
the turbulent storms around us seem to dissipate,
opening a path that assists us in unimaginable ways."

"Yes" said The Big Elephant,
throughout it all, I've learned to appreciate
the Teacher in every situation."

The two friends smiled at each other,
acknowledging that whatever manifests and comes forth
within the rhythms of life, all have purpose
which, as The Big Elephant said, gifts us
with exactly where we need to be.

Love...Peg

The Big Elephant was coarsing through Nature
When the Mother asked,
"Hey, have you noticed how much attention
that I am now getting?
Don't you think it is about time that the populace
lent me their ear?

Having been so lenient for so many many years,
Now, I find it necessary to demand, not only attention
But appropriate response."
The Big Elephant lifted her head in recognition and accord.
She knew The Mother Nature spoke of that which needs be.
It was then that she asked, "How may I assist?"

The Mother Nature smiled and the seas rocked in deliverance
As the moon crested to her assent. She then responded.
"You may assist by acknowledging and respecting every
living thing. Ahhh, you may ask, "What is not living?"
The answer therein lies within the question,
For within all, there is life.

Love, Deb
