Bowers Mansion Tree with Poem March 2017

“Continue”

Create what is in your heart.
Share it with others.
You are coming home. 
Yes, you are.
You may take detours,
Yet, you are on your way.
Listen to the voice of nature,
the voice of the divine.
I will not lead you astray.

You successfully live
as a human on this beautiful
Mother Earth when you
share and create from the heart.
That is love. It is good.
My voice arises
from the heart.
All that I am is Good.
All that I am is Love.
You are Good.
You are Love.
You are. I am.

Quiet the voice
of the lower self.
The more you practice
the easier it will become.

The magical day will dawn
when the lower self falls
victim to the
Divine love
which is you.

Place focus in the heart.
Go forth from this divine space.
Release the voice of the ego.
Continue dear one.
Continue,
And know that
You are never judged
And always loved.
I love you.

Walk With Me by Camilla Downs

Thomas and Camilla July 2016 Date Day 8.4.16 #2

Come,
Walk with me.

Do you not see,
that you have
tethered your self
to illusions.
That create the
suffering you experience.

The illusion that you
are little,
that you must
compete and attack
to survive.

An illusion that comes
not from your soul.
Your soul knows the truth.

When you feel bliss,
when you feel time
stand still,
When you are truly joyful,
When you know that all is well,
When you look into
the eyes of another
and see the universe.
When you give and receive
love to yourself,
your brothers and sisters,
animals and Mother Earth.

These are when you have
let illusion fall away
and experience the
Truth of Grandeur.

Practice, you must,
at letting go
of confusion, overwhelm,
and fear for these are
not of the Truth.

For only when you
release the tethered
cord of illusion
will you be set free.

Come,
Walk with Me
And come home
to the Truth.

Peaceful and Beautiful

June 26 2017:

Sunset walk with Lillian yesterday. Incredibly peaceful and beautiful. Nature is a blessing. She does her best to fill us up when we’re feeling empty. She also adds to our joy and peace when we’re joyful and peaceful. Mother Nature is the Best!!

Wonderful and Balancing and Gratitude and Sunset

June 18 2017:

Sunset visit to one of our favorite parks to throw frisbee and for Thomas to test the drone that a friend gifted to him. He got it up a few times, just needs to study it a bit more.

Then we took our family walk. It was such a beautiful sunset. Wonderful clouds and birds with a light breeze. It was the perfect balance to an arguing Thomas and Lillian.

Incredibly grateful to nature for having been with us all these years …. for being my partner in holding a space for joy, complaining, fun, peace, forgiveness, and transmuting.

Be With Me by Camilla Downs

Pink and White Flowers Sweet One Poem 2016

“Sweet one,
Be with me
For a moment.

I ask of you
Out of your mind
To venture.

Come forth
Into your heart.
Listen to the song
Of the heart.
For she sings
A love song
Sweet and beautiful.

A song designed
Specifically for you.
Hear you will not,
If you choose
To live life
In the realm of the mind.

The mind is a tool
To be used in
Unison with the
The song of the heart.

Come forth into
Your heart.
Listen to the song
Of the heart.
Live life from
The music of the heart

And set your self free.” ~2016 Camilla Downs, Lessons from Nature

Stardust and Moonbeams by Camilla Downs

San Antonio Tree with Stardust and Moonbeams Poem 2016

Stardust and Moonbeams

At times when I look at you,
I’m instantly taken to the
Heart of knowing
That we are friends.
You and I, oh yes,
Friends for an eternity.
Friends, lovers, siblings,
Parents, cousins, and
Everything in between.
We are all of these
And stardust and
Moonbeams too. Oh yes.
An eternity, oh yes.

Grow With Me by Camilla Downs

Sun Through Trees Fall 2016 Enhanced

Grow With Me

Go, Hurry, Hurry
Go, Hurry, Hurry
This is the mantra
You help me to release.

Stop, Slow, Slow
Stop, Slow, Slow
This is the mantra
You share with me.

Be quiet. Be still.
Listen. Be in silence.
Communicate without words.
Communicate from the divine heart.

Watch me. Learn with me.
Lean on me.
Ask of me assistance.
Grow with me.
We have much to learn
from one another.

Let us be the
Connected ones
We came here to BE.
Let us share divine love
In our own unique ways.
