SPIRITUAL POEMS: “Insight” by Trina Graves

“Insight”

 

Before writing a poem I pray for guidance
But today, I still couldn’t get the theme
So I decided to visit my tranquil beach
Where my answers are revealed in a dream

This simple, insightful tool I discovered
Many years ago in a Betty Shine book
Meeting my Guide at my peaceful place
Counsel I’d always get, if the time I took

By just letting whatever images flow
Without blocking them by my thought
My questions are always answered
And wise guidance to me is brought

My first ever visit to The Beach
In summer of 99, I soon forgot
But years later I found my notes
Understanding then hit the spot

I had gone to seek the ultimate answer
Of what I was here in this life to do
I walked bare-foot on the sandy beach
And was met by someone I never knew

I didn’t have to ask his name
‘James’ just slipped into my mind
He was about my age, in a robe
Serene, gentle, loving and kind

We were looking out at the ocean
He said “It’s a vast world out there”
Then he turned me around to the beach
And hundreds of people were everywhere

They were rushing around in fast motion
As if watching fast-forward on TV
James told me to hold love in my heart
And reach out to touch someone carefully

As I touched someone they stopped
Relaxed, slowly moving on, smiling at me
I was told that by touching people’s lives
I could set them on their path to God naturally

James asked me to do it again
This time a child stopped as I reached out
“Children are easier to bring back to God
They haven’t strayed as far,” without a doubt

At the time of that very first meeting
I wasn’t ready to ‘hear’ or understand
The momentous, insightful wisdom
Available to all and so easily at hand

So, getting back to my visit today
James met me on the beach as before
Immediately, I knew what my theme would be
The Beach and what I came here for
