I Am

Throughout all realms of experience, that essential nature illuminating Existence
is the One
May all beings perceive through subtle intellect
the magnificent brilliance
of enlightened Awareness

  1. Thank you for this body of work. This blog came across my way in my research in deepening my relationship to African-diasporic spiritualities as a (Black-Mixed Queer) Witch — it’s been interesting trying to find and learn from sources where this is grounded in their ancestry and identity.

  2. Thank You 🙏 For Sharing Your Knowledge, Wisdom, and; Experience! I applaud 👏🏼 you!
