Liberation

how we think

the beliefs we create
from our experiences

become a complex overlay

of our consciously
and unconsciously
held trauma

unwinding the patterns
both somatically and emotionally

integrating our gained wisdom
aligned with our spiritual nature

is our liberation

Ruth Roberts

Discovering Code

In arriving
in this form

our essential hardware is
always in the background

our software often suffers
broken linkages from
our ancestral lineage

outdated conscious and unconscious coding
limiting how see ourselves and each other

this conditioning
layers of
predetermined stories

can restrict
our ability to function
in this world

it is through entering
chaos’ apparent disorganization

patterning can be
recognized and interrupted
and occasionally met with a crash

giving space for
awareness
understanding
new vision
to arise

always undergirded
by the support of our hard drive
a universal relationship of ground

 new programming can be installed
connections get rewired
fresh coding integrated

 our system
instals the latest updates
reconfigures damaged links
while retaining historical data

as it accesses and informs
more congruent pathways of comprehension

in completing its tasks
all applications with all their collective complexities
become activated when their process is initiated

this correlates with
life’s conquest for
conflict resolution

routing clarified
updated synapses

freeing up storage space
to revise old versions
increased speed in performance functioning
with greater capacity to hold and retain past and current memories

a coordinated dialogue between all moving parts
supporting connectivity and embodiment

providing knowledge, skill and relationship
to the creative and illuminating source

an essence that governs all life

Ruth Roberts

 

I Weep

I Weep

for all that has been
broken
forgotten
repressed
suppressed

in not remembering

these losses distort
perception

resulting in
anger
righteousness
a need for control

to make things
‘feel’ safe

I reflect

what was the moment
of disconnection

knowing something was wrong

how do we find
truth
ruth

venturing into
the murky layers
of forgotten memories

back to a place inside
when there was
no choice

to ensure
survival

imperative
to construct
to make sense of

a reality that

still unconsciously
demands
reinforces

its beliefs and values

a part
a structure
a pattern

created by necessity

adapting

its valiant effort
to maintain safety
in the external holding environment

I weep 

for all the lost years
searching for
love respect dignity

life begins with love

not necessarily meaning
a parent’s  definition of love

as they may hold a
spoken or unspoken agenda
current and ancestral wounds
a predetermined overlay

or no plan

consciously and unconsciously
impacting new life

so where does love begin
I ask myself

I believe
each new being
breathing into life

is here

to
remind parents
open their hearts
grow

in relationship

softening yet strengthening
their bond

creating a space for
potential healing
unexpected miracles

love
is always here

our soul
yearning for wholeness

searches for
a returning to

light before thought
quiet before action
oneness before separation

birth and death
meet in essence

we become peace

we are love

I weep

Ruth Roberts

Shape Shifting

being shaped embryologically
by our parents and ancestry

instilled through cellular memory

wavelengths
shortened or lengthened

our body’s and mind’s agility
impacted

influencing
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 society’s 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

Ruth Roberts

Tearing

Tearing

wet crying
or a ripping apart

alone
I gather
tumbling thoughts
from wounded beliefs

I feel
the density
or vacancy
of my heart’s connection

struggling
yearning for clarity
grieving lost moments

waiting in silence

an answer
quiet and then
a softer deeper wisdom

listening
weeping through and healing

my calloused scars

Ruth Roberts

I am Not

I am Not

all that I can be

and yet I am
complete

choosing to
engage
explore
gather
evolve

wholeness
beckoning

a persistent
gentle tug

leading me to
fall back
remember
holding its fullness
attuning through essence

settling

I begin anew

Ruth Roberts

I Am

my heart’s desire

embodied
silence

chaos
knowing
emotion

remembering
instinct
in being

student
teacher
spirit

a work in progress
