Build and Not Tear Down

The challenge at the moment is to remain positive in the face of the world’s craziness.  And while it is important to stand up against the wrongs that are being perpetrated by so many of our misguided leaders who are too busy playing politics to really work on the things that really matter, it is important to create positively.

According to Isaac Newton and his “Third Law of Motion”: “For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction”.  It is not surprising then that the most effective means of producing positive change is not to oppose another force head-on but to work to turn that force’s motion in a more favourable direction.  For example, even the National Rifle Association in the USA is open to banning the “bump” devices which turn semi-automatic weapons into effectively fully automatic weapons.

It is important to support and acknowledge any positive steps by own opponents however small.  It is important to maintain a working dialogue with all people if at all possible, for this makes future changes a little more possible.

The following poem was written by me six months ago.  Despite my familiarity with the expression “little one” I am still a little uncomfortable with this wording. Sometimes, particularly when capitalized (q.v. Little One), this term is directed towards me, and sometimes it is directed to all souls living at this time on the Earth.

I hope you find this poem helpful in some way.  And it is a “real” poem, almost, this time as it mostly rhymes.  I don’t know that the rhyming is as powerful as when the words flow from the heart almost indiscriminately, but its useful to explore other means of expression.  Enjoy.

 

Build and Not Tear Down

 

Find what is true and let everything else go.

You can do this for you already know,

which things are important, and which things are not…

 

so let go of the non-essentials, and live the life you could.

Let go of all the niceties, and obligations, and all the things you “should”.

 

Let go of the people, all those who waste your time,

with their gossip, and negativity, for your strength they undermine.

Let go of those “too serious” and all the “drama-queens”,

who like nothing better than a “war”, or “villains” and “victims”,

or any kind of scene.

 

Let go.  Let go.  Let go,

and let God be your guiding light.

Turn round.  Turn round,

and follow the path that is clearly in your sight.

Follow Truth, Love and Kindness, and let your flag unfurl,

as you step up… step forward…

to build a better world.

 

Let us march together, arm in arm, and hand in hand.

Let us cultivate the numbers of this ever-growing band,

of people who want to build and not tear down,

 

So build and create, all the good things in life…

and if we build together, and make each other stronger,

we will put an end to strife.

 

God bless all you fellows, who are seeking to end war.

God bless all you workers, who are seeking to restore,

the world of God’s creation, that we call Paradise…

and soon it will be here…

 

if we keep building on our building, and keep loving in our hearts…

and soon this new beginning will be a perfect start…

 

So little one, keep building…

Keep loving…

and keep growing…

in Love and Light and Truthfulness.

 

God bless,

Alan

A Flower in God’s Garden

Greetings and good wishes to all.

I’ve been revising some old poems recently and transcribing them to my computer recently, and I came across this poem from 2010.  I find that it still speaks to me and I hope it does to you as well.

I will have to leave my preamble short today as I’ve had to use one of my local library’s computers, as mine is not working. Now I’m coming towards the end of my session, so I’ll go straight into the poem.

 

A Flower in God’s Garden                    

I am a flower… made by God.

I am a beautiful soul, that is a part of God’s garden.

Sometimes it seems I am surrounded by weeds…

but there are no weeds in God’s garden.

For all beings are beautiful flowers.

It is true that some of these flowers, need pruning…

and/or support…  to reach their full potential….

and to show their full, Divine glory.

Most of the flowers need fertiliser to help them grow…

All of them need water… and tending by a Divine hand.

Be a flower, little one….

Be delicate, and graceful, and open to the world.

Be a flower, little one…  be beautiful…

and give to the world your true self… and your honey.

Let your words… and your thoughts… be nectar,

to sustain the world…

and to manifest a new Eden…

which is the Earth… as it truly is….

full of beauty…  full of Love…. full of peace.

Be a flower, little one….

Don’t worry if there are stronger, or taller,

or more beautiful flowers around you.

You are beautiful, as you are.

Keep yourself in good condition.  Look after all your needs.

Eat healthily, and in moderation.

Drink plenty of water, and be careful about what you consume.

Cultivate your thoughts… and discipline your actions…

to bring to the fore, your true beauty.

Be a gardener of your soul… and be a guardian of…

and advocate for, the Earth.

It is time for you to be a flower… not just a bud, of Divine potential.

Open up…                           Take a deep breath….

and just be… a flower.

Be a flower, in God’s garden…

for that is enough.

God bless.

 

 

Best wishes to all.  Stay strong, keep the faith, and help create a better world.

In love and light,

Alan

 

The World is in Need of You

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…

Right now!!

.

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…

 and shine.

.

God bless.

Alan
