POEMS: “The real virus” by Mystic Meandering (re-blogged)

“The real virus” In the first minutes of dawn, at the edge of the dark night, she awakes… Inexplicable dread overtakes her… … a dream? …or the zeitgeist of our time… ~ In the dark hours of time, a “virus” slipped in; a failing, narcissistic system; a divisive ideology, resurrected from former shadow minds of…

INSPIRATIONS: “A Call to Awareness” by Mystic Meandering

“A Call to Awareness” Humanity is living out the drama of the “original wound” of  mankind, where we “fell asleep”, numbed, fractured, fragmented  from our original innate Beingness – our Original Self. (Some call it our “Divine” or True Nature). That Original Being became seen as something separate that mankind continually tries to reconnect with…

“Race and Walls” – by Mystic Meandering (re-blogged)

What a powerful construct race is – powerful enough to consume us. But for all that life-shaping power, race is a mirage, which doesn’t lessen its force.  We are what people see ourselves as, whether what we [they] see exists or not. What people see in themselves and others has meaning and manifests itself in…

A Zen quote from Thich Nhat Hanh on wars, and our own prejudisms…

“We often think of peace as the absence of war, that if powerful countries would reduce their weapon arsenals, we could have peace. But if we look deeply into the weapons, we see our own minds- our own prejudices, fears and ignorance. Even if we transport all the bombs to the moon, the roots of…

A quote (within quotes) by Neale Donald Walsch on “fear”

   “Fear is one of the main sources of cruelty. To conquer fear is the beginning of wisdom.” Bertrand Russell said that, and he was right.  Elisabeth Kubler-Ross said, “Fear and guilt are the only enemies of man.” She was right, too.  And Franklin Roosevelt famously said,  “The only thing we have to fear is fear…

A quote from “A Course in Miracles” (about going within)

There is a silence into which the world cannot intrude. There is an ancient peace you carry in your heart and have not lost. Lay down your arms and come without defense into the quiet place where Heaven’s peace holds all things still at last. Lay down all thoughts of danger and of fear. As…

POEMS: “Gitanjali 35” By Rabindranath Tagore

Gitanjali 35   Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high;    Where knowledge is free;    Where the world has not been broken up into fragments by narrow domestic walls;    Where words come out from the depth of truth;    Where tireless striving stretches its arms towards perfection;    Where the clear stream of…

SPIRITUAL POEMS: “The Valley Of Fear” by Ella Wheeler Wilcox

In the journey of life, as we travel along
To the mystical goal that is hidden from sight,
You may stumble at times into Roadways of Wrong,
Not seeing the sign-board that points to the right.

Where the noon of the day will like midnight appear.

A quote from Neale Donald Walsch: “Choose Love”

“Choose Love” “In life, we have a choice between a thought of love or a thought of fear. “Fear is the energy which contracts, closes down, draws in, runs, hides, hoards, harms. Love is the energy which expands, opens up, sends out, stays, reveals, shares, heals. “Fear wraps our bodies in clothing, love allows us…
