THE QUEST

Poem from the Sage series….

 

She climbed the mountain

With hope

Would he be there?

Flames aglow

From a comforting fire

She hastened her steps

As she approached

“Child, I’ve been expecting you”

“You have?”

“Come, sit by the fire and have some tea”

As he drifted into a peace-filled trance

She sat down in lotus

“Tell me your troubles child”

“Uncertainty”

“Uncertainty about what, child”

“Where and what I am supposed do and who I am.  I’ve been traveling from place to place searching and trying different avenues only to yield futility.”

“You expect too much child. Take this,” he said handing it to her

She took the neatly folded parchment from him

And began to unfurl it

There were exactly 108 folds

Gazing upon the parchment

A labyrinth

A mandala

Her face aglow

From the soothing yellow and orange flames

Bewildered

“What is this?”

“Your answer, child”

“My answer. How will this help me?”

“Child, life is a journey. Why are searching life itself for who you are. Life serves as guideposts for paths of teaching, awakening, evolution and transformation.”

“Life is so hard”

“Yes, child it is. Life itself is not the answer to who you are, what you are supposed to do or where you are to go. Life is a series of events and figures walking along the ridges of the labyrinth.  Do you not learn from life?”

“Well, yes but….”

“Where is my existence in life? Who am I? What am I supposed to do? Is there any meaning and purpose to my life and to my existence?”

“Child, there is meaning and purpose in all life. Do not let life define who you are. Life does not define you.  You define yourself by what others and life tells you.  What you are searching for cannot be found in life itself.”

She looks

With perplexed contemplation

“Follow the path, child.  It is a map.”

“A map?”

“It is a map to your existence. Who you are and what you are to fulfill”

“How will this lead me to who I am and to my purpose? I am confused”

“Child, life serves as guideposts for events and figures to pass in and out.  You will not find what you are searching for by life itself.  What you are seeking is in the center”

“What will I find in the center?”

“Your soul, child, “he replied

“It is the essence of love and light that belongs to you and to everyone.  Do not just hear but listen to the echoes within you and you will find your true self and your calling.”

Bewildered

She closed her eyes

Listening to the crackling fire

As

AUM

The hymn of the universe

Resounded within her

COBALT BOTTLE

Traveling

Within the rays

Of brilliancy

Upon turquoise waves

A cobalt bottle

Sealed with and cork and wax

Comes upon the shores

Of white sand

Nestled within

A quiet gentle cove

Within a note

Opening the seal

Sweet aromas

Of roses and frankincense

Intoxicating

Within the scroll

Dear Angel,

Walking these lands

Of this rough and tumbled place

Give me strength and courage

Bequeath to thy being hope

To cope

Pray the gifts of

Joy, peace, happiness and love

Will descend upon thee

Don’t know where

I am going

Release my fears

Envelop thy being in your

Love’s radiance

The comfort of thy being

Let thy being

Rise above the curses

Of thy life

And awaken

To love’s light

Praying and hoping

To catch the wind

And soar into new adventures

Good and true

Shield thy being

With strength, courage and faith

For you, angel, are thy blessings

And thy faded glory

Longing to see thee

Your love and light

The tenderness of your voice

That touched thy being…..

Angel, my needs are tended to

But thy dreams and desires

Are untouched

Waiting for new beginnings

Darkness before the dawn

May the steps that I have taken

And are about to take

Pray they have and will not be in vain

Dear Angel,

Guide thy path

Shield thy being with your courage

Strength, faith, light, peace and hope

Although this path

Upon which thy feet touch must be alone

For you chose it

But is there

A star of gentle grace

And love like you

That thy being will encounter

Within the new dawn

To just be

In pure simplicity, laughter and serenity

With the rose

You left behind

Angel, are you there?

I’LL BE THERE…. TO CATCH YOU

 

When the ruts and ditches

Of life render falls

I will be there

To catch you and hold you close

When you need a shoulder

To cry upon

I will be there

To catch you and hold you close

When you need the light to shine

When darkness succumbs

I will be there

To catch you and hold you close

Lighting the way

When love wanes and falls away

I will be there

To catch you and hold you close

In love’s tender embrace

No matter

Where you are

Within time and space

I am here for you

For I am always with you

There is no greater love

Then my love

For you, my dearest

I am here for you

And I will always

Catch you and hold you close

Because you are

The Soul of my Love

Where am I going?

 

Reaching the peak

For she was told

“It does not matter which mountain you climb as long as it is the highest”

She found the Sage

In Lotus

Within the soft rays

Where am I going?

She, asked the Sage

Watching the light

Change and play upon the lowlands

As the crystal river gently caressed the rocks

Echoes soothed her

Whatever do you mean, child?

Where am I going?

All my needs are being taken care of

But is what I am doing

The paths I have chosen mean anything

Or are they fruitless endeavors

Of a wandering soul

Trying to make sense

Of the meaning of her life?

Child, why are you so concerned about

Where you are going?

Learn to be content

With where you are at

In this moment

In this time and space

Where am I going?

Does my life having meaning?

Right here

Right now

Child, every path

Everything we do in this life

Is not without reason

It teaches us,

Prepares us,

Strengthens us,

Enhances our gifts,

Humbles us,

And many more

Although the meaning seems hidden

From us

There is always a reason

We are growing, blossoming

And evolving each and every moment

Teachers are all around us

Even in troublesome times

Despair

The path of light

Is always there

Waiting

Child,

Know that you are a  lotus

Unfolding within the rays

Of light

Into potentials

That have not revealed

Themselves to you yet

The universe will show you

When it is time

And where to go next

Follow your heart

Your truth

With patience and love

You will know

Do not be

So concerned

Where you are going

Because the universe

Will show you

Through the gifts you came

Into this world with

Your path and your destiny

For your highest good

And for the highest good of others

Child,

Follow your heart and the light

For they will show you

The way

And to

Where you are going

THE POET

 

A poet

“Is a foolish endeavor

That fulfills idealistic whims,” she said to the Sage

Child,

The poet

Gifted with the eyes

To see beyond

The planes of earthy mist and logic

Sees the music and the awe

Cascading down from the cliffs

And into the hands of the poet

Unfolding into melodic verses

Containing wisdom and reflections

Felt within the passing breezes

But unheard

Through the eyes of the poet

You escape

Into the dawn of reverie

Drinking in the wisdom

You may have missed

From life’s fragmented world

You see, child

A poet is not

On a fool’s errand

The poet

Gifted with the eyes that see

Beyond the mists

Are rays of light that touch the hearts of all

Who shall truly listen

Child,

The poet

Is one of life’s greatest assets

A bringer of endless beauty

Lotus

From the depths

Of the murky waters

She rose

Within the rays of light

Showing her the way

Until the murky waters

Of life

That consumed her

Began to clear

Breaking the

Water’s mirror of murkiness

She was greeted

With love and light

That surrounds her

Protects her

Guides her

For she was never alone

Love and light

Was always with her

She just needed

Reach and rise up

Within the rainbow rays

To awaken

To feel

The serenity

The love

The beauty

That beholds her

And always had

Petal by petal

The lotus opens

Within the rays

Of light and love

For she is like

The lotus

Journeying within

This new dawn

For the murky waters

Of life that once

Consumed her

Have faded

Into its own negativity

For she now

Resides in a

New dawn

That will show her

The way

And into

A new purpose

Within the house of love and light

That now holds what

Is most precious to her

For she

Like the lotus

That rises

From the depths

Of murky waters

And opens

Petal by petal

Within the rays of light

To reveal it glorious beauty

And so is she

But with

A grander spirit

Than she had before
