There was a time I couldn't stand poetry. Today I totally get it even though it’s still a faraway universe. Poets are like the illuminated cherries on the pie. Ok so you don't need to eat too many cherries either, that's nauseating. Poetry is meant to be read in homeopathic doses. Nevertheless, they are divinely inspired and are meant to be savoured slowly. Therefore reading poetry requires patience and a certain amount of presence, something I acquired recently, at least for kindergarden poetry. Maybe because now I consider myself an aspiring poet. It's not really my niche but really, I totally get it and I do love writing. I especially love the feeling of going into the heart waiting for the whispers to rise from within floating past the mind. It feels so true and real when you hear it. It feels like yourself or you exploring new lands. I get that feeling when I'm walking into a forest or when I cook. You can't force to make it happen. You can't control the process and neither is it something you can remember. No wonder kids can't sit still. They are dying to be inspired. They don't enjoy copying or rehearsing or memorizing. They want to create like we all do but most grown-ups have mastered the art of ignoring the inner voice which is a tragedy. Imagine a world filled with people who are happy and content feeling invigourated by their day spent creating another masterpiece. Every day is Sunday. Every day is a day inspired feeling so very much alive because your heart pulsates to the beat of the universe. Every day you wake up with a passion for life forever creating waves of bliss. It’s supreme ecstasy even more so because you have mastered your fear so you know your blissful state is never going away. You are plugged in, heart and mind are alligned and it feels solid!
Just as we are all born with different fingerprints, so we are all born with a very special talent. We ALL have a very special talent that we do better than anyone else. That is our gift from the divine light within. We are all geniuses. The day I decided to start following my heart, I became a genius. You too can become a genius. It’s so easy because the only requirement is to start doing what you love most and what comes EASY. Easy is the opposite of disease which is what happens when your follow ego agendas. Stuff that gives you a sense of entitlement because for years you had to work so very hard to obtain it. Yet deep down you know…..Who dreamt of becoming a divorce lawyer or working for Goldman Sachs when they were 6?
True happiness is only realized when originality is finally able to shine through. It restores self-esteem and unknown faculties become alive. For example, you start to recognize your inner guidance system. When there’s too much going on in the head because you are trying to figure things out, you end up feeling exhausted. But when you are in allignment engaged in an activity you feel passionate about, you are present and you pay attention to the ideas and hints that jump to mind. Feeling erect in the spine, the speech becomes clear and powerful as you express your ideas with confidence.
The natural condition of life is to live without fear. Fear is not real and darkness is nothingness. You can never add dark. I learned that from Osho. You can only ever fill the darkness with light. Therefore the nature of life or God is 'light’ and the feeling of light is love. How do we know this? Because we are created in the image of God. It’s just that before you awaken, you imagine God loves like we have been taught to love; conditionally. But observe babies....love in natural. It arises when you still your mind. It even has a sound; OM. No one should ever chant OM like a robot, but wait for OM to arise when you are tuned in and your vibration has gone up. It will arise naturally.
Once awake, we realize we are mirrored images of God and separation is only an illusion. Our life, our experiences is entirely our universe. The whole of it is a reflection of the content of our mind, manifested thoughts, feelings and underlying feelings. If all this feels a bit daunting, no need to worry, there's more help out there then we can possibly imagine. We only have to ask. Is it not with the faith of a mustard seed that mountains are moved? We do need to ask however for divine law prevents us from receiving unless we ask. We truly are free in every sense of the word.
In love and light
