The following poem is a little rough around the edges, and will need to be re-edited before it is included in my book when that finally is actualized. Still, I feel it is appropriate to publish this now, as it is an important topic. This poem was originally written in 2011.
I hope you enjoy it, or find it useful.
A new beginning. How I’ve wanted that.
But I can only start from where I am.
I cannot wish myself to magically be somewhere else,
or to be someone else.
This is not to say that there is not magic
and deep, sudden transformation.
But I can only do this by being me…
fully… in this moment.
Transformation comes through intention… and awareness…
To change consciously, I must know who and what I am.
Transformation comes from following my heart,
for this is the seat of love.
It comes from letting go of the trivialities
that distract me in my daily life.
Transformation comes from thankfulness,
and appreciation of the things that surround me.
It needs me to sense the Divine order that places each being,
and each thing, exactly where it needs to be.
I know I cannot find fulfilment when I seek things outside myself,
for then I am separate from the Universe……. and from God.
Fulfilment… and peace come from stillness…
and from connection…
and from God.
I am always only a step away from this connection,
but until now I have not chosen connection…
I have not been looking in the right place.
It is said: “Seek and ye shall find”: (Matthew 7:7)
but, I will only find peace,
when I value “appreciation” and “connection”,
and the inherent value of each and every soul.
Outwardly I walk a different path to you,
and yet, all roads lead to Home.
And, the real truth is that I am always “home”.
All I need do is to be still and embrace the peace…..
and the Divine love…. that is within.
Feel the peace… Be the peace… and love…
Remember this. Practise this.
And all will be well.
Go in peace… Be peace…
Blessings be to you.
With all my love…
