Shape Shifting

being shaped embryologically

by our parents and ancestry


instilled through cellular memory



shortened or lengthened


our body’s and mind’s agility




the way we think and interact


reaffirmed through conditioning

establishing a ‘norm’


reverberating in

the collective unconscious


until we know its relationship within

we are unknowingly in reaction


from that which has been acceptable in our individual communities

each societies deemed ‘proper way’ to behave


how can we truly know the ground we stand upon

how can we understand and respond from our heart


a place that promotes universal harmony

respectful of the essential qualities of being

that we all are birthed of and into


unless willing to commit to

an uncompromising and unending internal review of

all that has been established as the status quo


protecting what may appear to serve us but

not serving our planetary living beating heart


making a choice to enter

into the fear


the possibility

we may not know the answer


trusting to venture

into the dark night of the soul


as the veil lifts


we discover


a light at the end of the tunnel

returning to our

interlinking connections


gathering in our

understanding  wisdom  grace


in this

we serve all


By Ruth Roberts

We meet Within

“We are moving through the fluids
healing our lineage
shifting our perspectives




attuning to
embracing body-spirit knowing


all the interconnections
waiting to be met


 By Ruth Roberts

Stop it

the words have been spoken

“Stop it”


no longer silent


standing on solid ground


we too can say

stop it


inspired and with authority

protecting the vulnerable

for anyone

doing or voicing that which violates a country’s constitutional laws

transgressing another’s human rights


in hearing someone say

stop it

we join them

unifying our voices


let’s make it an anthem

let it be the movement


no need to be alone trying to protect oneself

no need to stand by and not be sure how to help

support a community

heal the world

record it

post it

stop it
