Beliefs

conscious and unconscious
implicit and explicit

epigenetics
shape us

when
recognized
understood
integrated

transformation
to life’s cellular biology

awakens and meets
‘essential wisdom’

a uniquely new expression
touching beyond the personal
yet resonating with the old

rippling
creating
an evolution
a collective shift

constancy
and impermanence

becoming
another simple day
in the universe

by Ruth Roberts

Immolation

An announcement
reaching out
to touch

There comes a time
beyond
considering
responsibility
to another
in the smaller spectrum

not limited by
constraints
standards
framed by society

an accumulation
culminating
in one moment

realizing
the powers that be
the level collective conscious
is unable to respond

with one final experience
spoken and not met

A surrender
to knowing

change
is not
on the horizon

Slowly
a place inside
of quiet
of solitude

a kind of spiritual
freedom
peace

acceptance
of what is
emerges

together
providing
ease
in action

From death
of form

there belies
hope

its tragedy
its impact

will awaken
something

needing to be
felt
seen
known

its loud silence

a larger story
being
called to

the wound
behind

and the song
of potential
healing

Ruth Roberts
