Ascending The Fun-Fair Of Life



It was in December 2012
Everywhere was Ascension talk
A few days before the 21st
I wondered what path we’d walk

Questioning, ‘What is Ascension?’
I went to find answers in my mind
A visit with James on the beach
And clarity of guidance I knew I’d find

But the beach just didn’t seem right
Woods?.. Mountain top high in the air?
And then I was in a new place
A field full with a travelling fun-fair

James was nowhere in sight
So I thought I’d go for a walk
Around the sights and sounds
As I did, I heard his voice talk

“With all the different rides to go on
Life is like a great FUN-fair
Exciting, noisy, lots going on
And high drama, if you dare”

“Children love all the fun
Of a colourful, simple ride
Parents know to keep them away
From those where scary things hide”

“If you want to get a high view
Take a trip on the Big Wheel
But the cycle of life has its downs
What’s important is how you feel”

“Some people love the fast rides
And crave a dangerous element
Forces pressing, tossed about
Highest drama in physicality sent”

“It’s best to only ride what you enjoy
But that’s not what most will do
A multitude of reasons why
These are some to give you a clue”

“Peer pressure, fitting in with friends
Not wanting to feel left out
May cause you to take on things
That you fear, or just give you doubt”

“Enticed by the hard sell
Or blatantly just dared
Not wanting to accept defeat
Can win over, even if truly scared”

“And then there are also those
Who’ve given their control away
Unknowingly manipulated by others
Which ride?… what to do, every day”

“There are always a few
Who just want to take in the sights
Not venturing this time on the rides
All choices… no wrongs or rights”

As I reached the other side
I noticed James just up ahead
Looking younger, dressed in jeans
Baseball cap, backwards, on his head

Between us a white picket fence
I then saw, surrounded the fair
A barrier with no visible gate
Then one appeared, so I went out there

I asked James what will happen
When Ascension comes along
He said “This fair will end
And all the rides will be gone”

“People will have a choice
To continue on in another fair
Or let go of the perpetual rides
High drama and intoxicating glare”

“To simply BE in peace and joy
Living as One in unity
Love and Light flowing to all
Surrounded by beauty all can see”

Behind James was another field
Picturesque of Heaven above
Children happily ran and played
I could feel the joy and the love

James asked me, “Would you be
Willing to let all your family go
Especially your little grandchildren
And their parents… yes or no?”

I thought all the children would Ascend
When that time came to be
James said, “Even they have a choice
Always freewill for all of humanity”

We walked closer to the fence
And I understood its presence there
A barrier between the two worlds
I could see over, but not physically share

Joyful groups gathered to watch
Their precious loved ones go for a ride
Knowing they could give guidance
Sending their energy to the other side

If felt a sense of peace
And then drifted off to sleep
That fateful day came and went
But Ascension knowledge I now keep

  2. This was very good! I found this very interesting in many ways! I’m thinking of James in the Bible who wrote the Book of James under inspiration of the Holy Spirit. It’s not a long book but very true. He is the Lord Jesus’ earthly brother and he was writing to the Jewish Believers in Jesus at the time. It’s a ride alright, a journey that fits what this poem shared; the ups and downs, the questions, the encouragements and how we are to live on this side of Heaven. We can draw as close to God as we want to through His Son. I also loved the colorful pics you put with this. (this is Trina’s post?) Anyway, thank you for sharing!

    1. Yes, this is Trina’s post 🙂 In her site she explains more the story about her poems. I like to re-post them as well to share them in my blog.
      It’s very interesting the connections that you make to the Book of James. I too enjoyed the references to life’s up’ and downs, and all the “rides” we go on in life. Thank you so much for your lovely comment and insights 🙂 ❤

      So pleased that you liked this poem and thank you so very much for mentioning about James. I never knew that he was the brother of Jesus which puts a very interesting context to what I have been given in these ‘visions.’ I have been meeting James in these visualizations since 1999 and several times was ‘told’ we were siblings in a previous life. On my birthday this year (which has a very significant meaning to me) James revealed that he was infact Jesus but knew I was not ready to accept this before now. However, I know that we are all one and connected, so the sibling part does not necessarily mean literally, as we can delve into the past of anyone on our eternal journey.

      Also, for me there is a synchronicity in what you say ‘We can draw as close to God as we want to through His Son’ as this is the theme of one of the first visions I had after this revelation and on my blog is where I first tell of this happening with my poem ‘Footprints Of Light.’ It’s all so interesting and fascinating how things continue to unfold!
      Thank you ❤ Love, Light & Blessings ❤

      1. Isn’t that amazing? I thought the same thing, it’s is very interesting to see how your visions are unfolding and the messages are all deepening and putting the pieces of the big picture’s puzzle together, clarifying things to help us understand concepts such as free will, ascension, concepts of wrong and right, etc. I definitely think that you should continue to share your visions to help all of us expand our understanding. You are such a blessing!!! ❤ 🙏 ❤
