Well, that was a surprise for me finding that my last “post” is saved as a draft and not posted after all. Oh well, I’ll save that [“Do Not Be a People-pleaser”] for another time.
Today is the start of a new year and I’d like to post something uplifting and hopefully inspiring to help get 2017 off to a positive start. This poem was written in October, 2016. I hope you enjoy it.
The World is in Need of You
“There’s a light at the end of the tunnel.”
It is important to keep your faith… and to keep your hope, and trust…
especially in these difficult and troubling times.
Tomorrow will be a better day. Peace will come…
but we must do more.
It is not enough to trust in a brighter tomorrow… for we need a brighter today.
If you want more light… and more love in this world…
then be a source of light and love.
Sow the seeds of peace and love today…
You are standing on fertile ground for everyone, almost without exception,
wants a peaceful world… a world of love… and light.
Turn on your light, little one… Don’t wait for another…
You are enough…
You think you are only one… (even though you are one of many),
Even one is enough….for One…
is the All.
It is not enough to intend to do things, one day…
Some things need preparation and this is fine,
but start today… not next week… or next year.
The world is in urgent need of you, functioning at your highest capacity.
It has need of you functioning at your highest capacity.
It has need of you as a bringer of light…
and love… and peace.
Accept your circumstances, little one.
Accept your limitations, and your desires, and your aspirations.
You are in exactly the right place… right where you are meant to be.
So start today… right from where you are.
You say you are not capable… that you are not enlightened…
But, little one, you are on the path to enlightenment…
You are on the path to becoming a realized soul…
a light-bearer… and a light-bringer…
a sower of truth… and peace… and love.
So reflect on your situation. Find someone who you can help… today…
and offer your assistance.
Learn something today so that you will have more to offer tomorrow.
Make sure, too, that you learn about yourself, and how you function.
Take time to reflect in stillness… to meditate…
and to connect with the divine essence and understanding,
that permeates everything.
Little one, take time for yourself.
Little one, take time to help others…
and allow yourself to grow.
Blessings be to you… and to all humanity…
even those who know what they do.
Turn on you light… today.
Little one, turn on your light…
