The following is a poem that I penned spontaneously using my left thumb and right pointer tapping letter tiles on my iPhone while I was praying about the atmosphere of thought in our nation right now and the rise of the #metoo movement.
I offer it as comfort and hope and welcome having a conversation with you and discussing the possibility of healing if these words resonate with you. Much good to you always and thank you for devoting moments here and reading…. Tre ~
The pull to consider what happened when
Can tug at our heart
Make us feel suffocated
And even cause us to block memory
That pull I’ve come to know
Is the strategy of mortal thinking
And as I have found in endeavoring to live practical spirituality
There’s a right now for anyone one of us opportunity
At any moment each one of us can seek
The view of ourselves from Spirit–indeed our true individuality
This substance is right now and forever free from all harm
This substance right now eternally is held safe in Love’s arms
This substance remains untouched unscarred unblemished
Even if the most horrid of horrid has happened to you
(And I know this can sound hard to fathom )
But Love sees you whole now and always complete and as spiritual –perfect …
For each one of us is the breath of God
We are each a child an idea an instance of divine Love
And that Love never ever abandons neglects rejects its ideas
Nor does that Love ever oust shun deny or forbid its precious offspring
Our identity in Truth is unmarred from mortal muck
And healing is possible even from the memory of the most heinous as you seek to know yourself as an instance of Love
It’s a view that is holy and full of meaning and it sometimes demands every ounce of focus and thinking
But mental residue cannot hold anyone in a thought prison
No matter how strong that seeming hold is
No matter how impossible it seems to claim “I am innocent”
This truth is a spiritual fact
And the law of Divine Love grounds each be of us in this truth now.
What knowing this truth helps you do then
Is keep thought focused on the right now at hand
And shackles that once bound you loosen their seeming stronghold
And doubts and uncertainties lose their authority in thinking and you become more able to standing on solid knowing….
If you dear one reading experience any kind of nightmare from the past
If any memory hasn’t left thought and has changed how you show up to the world and you wish to change that…
Know dear one that you are now and have always been eternally held
As an integretous expression of all that is Spirit….
Your thought about yourself can be cleansed and renewed
You can gain a right now sense of your identity as spiritual and this elevated your wo/manhood.
No event is too dark
No memory too thick
Your allegiance is forever with divine Love
And you are now and always rooted and grounded in Spirit.
My heart to yours,
“God has endowed man with inalienable rights, among which are self-government, reason, and conscience. Man is properly self- governed only when he is guided rightly and governed by his Maker, divine Truth and Love.”
