A BEAUTIFUL DAY

As I look at the slowly passing clouds, the wind gently blowing in the tall trees, and the blue sky background

I notice the peaceful scene awakens something in me, a slight stir of my soul perhaps

Bringing with it calmness and a deep sense of peace

As the clouds form odd shapes I try and make something from them

An animal playing in the grass, a small child

I smile at the playfulness of nature

Enjoying the moment, the beautiful day

As time is forgotten, the warm sun moves across the sky to greet me,

Bringing me more and more into the moment

I close my eyes and ask my body if it is enjoying the moment

The relaxed feeling that overtakes it tells me that it is centered and happy

The sense of complete peace overwhelms me and the feeling soon becomes ineffable

My mind does not have the capacity to understand the joy

But the part of me that does understand it has realised that it has come home

That it has had a glimpse of the truth, of my true self

As I come back down to Earth I smile and watch the sunset

Reminding me to never forget the glimpse and insight that I have experienced, even when the darkness comes

A BEAUTIFUL DREAM

I had a dream a night a go

A dream that left me with a smile

I dreamt of a warm mid-summers day

Of a peaceful stream and birds at play

The dream was colored with small clouds in the sky

And beautiful mountains that would bring tears to your eyes

The gentle stream, the sound so dear

The little animals played so near

As the cool water flowed in front of me

To the trees I looked, and what did I see?

A beautiful girl that had been sitting there all the while

That girl was you, the reason I woke up with a smile

ASCENSION

I’ve come here from far away

Aware of the role I have to play

The players are moved to set the stage

Now comes the time, I turn the page

The world we see is not what it seems

Take a good look around, and you’ll see the teams

So make your choice and choose well

The time is close to ring the bell

Ask yourself honestly what is this life for?

And see if your answer helps open a door

This life I speak of is one of ascension

To meet a world that nobody mentions

There are worlds out there that you can’t see or feel

But ask yourself; is it possible they may be real?

If you feel the answer may be yes

Then an invitation you have to begin your quest

To find your way out of this mess

Once you know the truth you will not rest

So take some time to ponder these words

After all who doesn’t want to ascend like a bird?
