Absence of Self

Removing the flesh,
I go invisible.
Nothing left,
But spirit.
To many, I am invisible.
To one percent not.

I Am in this world,
But not of it.
Returning the way it was,
I am nothing.
In this void,
Finding Universal Truth.

No more hate,
No more fear.
Judgment has ceased,
Forgiveness for all.
Nothing left,
But everything I need.
Giving away my flesh,
The Spirit has returned.

I Am you,
You are me.
He is me,
She is we.
I Am Love
…and everything in between.

Many Masters, Many Souls

Many Masters, Many souls;

Many have died, many have lived.

One common similarity amongst nobles,

They believe in what they already know.

They struggle to retrieve the answers,

To have them only reappear.

 

Many Masters, Many Souls;

Many have died, many have lived.

The message is the same wherever you go,

Be true to yourself, more importantly fellow-man.

Do unto to others, was once beseeched;

Now it is time to reappear.

 

Many Masters, Many Souls;

Many have died, many have lived.

My life has come to a halt,

Only to begin again.

I have risen above all,

And found a place next to His.

 

Many lost, many found;

Many cry out, many laugh on.

It is our choice to see Heaven,

Or to see hell that we most fear.

See our fellow-man as likeness to God,

And you will have a place next to his.

 

Many lost, many found;

Many cry out, many laugh on.

In the end there will be  judgment,

So choose those steps wisely.

Do unto to others is spoken,

See this and your seat will be next to his.

 

Look past the Darkness,

And you will find Heaven on Earth.

There is no beginning and there is no end,

Only life everlasting.

Do unto others, as you want unto you,

And your seat will be reserved right next to his

Walking in Memphis

In treating cancer patients, we witness various emotions: fear, anger, sadness and often broken spirit. The opposing: hope, acceptance, gratitude, and ultimately Love, Love being the most important of them all. My job as a Radiation Therapist is not only to cure a person of cancer and rid them of disease, but to empower them in reclaiming their lives.

 

We never know when our clock will stop ticking; therefore we must live today as if it were the last. With every breath or every word spoken we contemplate whether we are consciously making effort to being in the moment and extending gratitude in every given situation. In connecting with each person we identify if they our at-ease or dis-ease with their diagnosis, allowing us to facilitate their physical, emotional and spiritual needs, raising their healing vibration to that of hope and ultimately love. There is great pleasure when connecting on the level of the soul, but also when the patient begins their journey towards healing.

 

While many will survive, there are many who won’t. The important factor is not whether we cure them of cancer but cure them at levels of the soul, acceptance being the final product. We are to comfort them and put them at ease.

 

Today, a patient came in nervous and scared. She did not know what to expect or what might happen during or after her treatment. Earlier that day she prayed for a sign that everything will be okay. As she got on the table a song came on which proved not only familiar but that everything will be okay, releasing any fear or doubt of her outcome. Marc Cohn began to sing to her “Walking in Memphis” which immediately brought back to her hometown of Memphis. In tears she smiled and gave a soft thank you to the universe. This woman was from Memphis and her confirmation was in a song.

 

When her first treatment was over, upon her exit and being asked how she felt, she replied, “Thank you. Earlier today I asked God to give me a sign that everything will be okay. When Walking in Memphis came on, He told me so.” Giving us a hug and thanking us again, with confidence, she explained, “Everything is going to be okay.”

 

Was this coincidence or was this divine intervention? There are confirmations like this every day, but often times we are too busy to notice. Reflect on a time that this happened… What are the odds it would have happened? I offer a simple suggestion of slowing down and paying attention to our surroundings.

 

When we connect with the universe, the universe will speak more frequently to us. Coincidence, which I prefer synchronicity, will increase and soon will find ourselves and the Universe in collaboration.

 

What are your thoughts on coincidence? Was this situation an accident or was it right on time?
