With very little money
Regardless of the condition of money being present.
Like unconditional love
Regardless of the conditions that are present.
A mother who taught me what it is to be rich
With or without the tangible manifestation of
She teases about going to the ‘Ocean Course’,
When I am taking care of her
When she becomes to…something…to take care of herself.
We laugh that I may put her on a budget and
That the extravagance of the plush beach resort restaurant
Will be too much for me to afford for her.
My heart smiles
And I think what a joy, pleasure and honor it would be to
Take her to her favorite place that feeds her soul
with food drenched in island sun
and an eyeful of sea-full splendor.
To be rich is to know you are worthy
Of such beauty
Regardless of how much money you have in your wallet or bank account.
To be rich is to live in a humble dwelling
and make it into a royal palace
of sacred opulent beauty
Infused with the divine
Emanating from objects reflecting consciousness
Art on every wall
Paintings by her
By her grandson.
To be rich is to wake up each morning in this beautiful
Warm glow of spirit
And oozing from
To be rich is to know how to live Unconditional Love
To Love without condition
The Divine Love
That we all are
No matter what shows up in our experience.
Opulence beyond your imagination
Living from the very core of your Soul
Where we are in communion with the realm of the Divine,
The Infinite Field of Possibility and Unconditional Love.
This is the rich soil
From which my being originates
In the dark soil of the Great Mother
and the sweet awakening spirit
Of the earth mother
Who knew her worth at a core level
Even when she was not aware of it.
My sweet matriarch, crone and wise woman
I will take you to the beautiful place that makes your heart sing
And I will breathe in the scent of salt air
and savor the bread pudding
Soaking up the sweet spirit of your soul
That has nurtured and given me permission to be
Worthy of the deep, delicious connection with my soul.
Life is so Rich
I can barely contain myself!
