After the start of the year I started in an on line poetry class.  It has been a challenge for me to stretch beyond what I normally write and to find the Divine in each subject.  The class is titled: The Study of Myth.  This poem is from one of the earlier classes that included the story of Adam and Eve.  So this is my version of Adam and Eve.

adam and eve

Succulent fruit hanging on the vine.

Humans and animals living in

harmony with the Divine.

Beauty of the creating Lord

flourishes in blooms and grasses

across the garden floor.

Adam and Eve strolling among the leaves,

lives’ a life of grace and easy.

Man and women created to celebrate

the harmony and joy of this garden so great,

can pet the lions and play with the elephants,

and live in a world without barriers or fence.

A garden of love for animals, insects, plants and trees.

A love of one another and the Energy Source

which created all they were and all they see.

Through the choice and thoughts they made,

the Universe gave them the ability to co-create.

Universal Law a gift from God,

says it is your thoughts that create the life

and feelings you procreate.

In contemplation of wanting more

Adam and Eve ventured to the forbidden tree

protected by a serpent of truth.

Eve asked, “What is it you protect in this tree?”

Slithering in silence the snake left his perch,

to look the couple in the eye,

to see what questions

the souls were hiding inside.

As he looked he saw the souls trying to re-align,

Ego gaining strength,

pulling tight the choice line.

“One choice can send your world in a spin,”

is what this serpent said to them.

“It is our right to know…what it is this tree does grow?”

Responded Eve.

The serpent moved closer to see what Adam didn’t show,

“Why are you so silent and not asking to know?”

Asked the snake then hissed and moved away slow.

“It is my partner’s plight to see the truth in a different light,

and there is no one else for me to love so joyously.”

“Ahhh,” said the serpent,

“A couple so free, in a garden of bliss,

so eager to separate

from the Divine that created all of this.

Yes, it is your choice to taste the fruit.

And, I will tell you it is your choice that

grows the Garden of Eden

or creates a world of fears and hate.

So use your thoughts wisely…

For they will quickly procreate.”

The serpent slide from the tree

to reveal the lush fruit.

In last words he said,

“You have received the message from your Creator,

Who has given you this freedom to choose.

And always, God will sit and wait for you,

Receiving you back regardless of what you think and do.

In re-alignment you will find the Garden of Eden is still divine.”

Further from the tree he slid,

and one last time looked back to see

the forms of Adam and Eve lose their radiant light

as they bite the fruit from the forbidden tree.

It did not take long for the ego to take hold

and the life of contrast ignite

into a world of illusions and fright.

The March Winds blow as the winter fades,

The Sun peaks out among the clouds

floating in a perfect array.

The worn ground cover pops

with specs of green among the grey.

The barren trees start to bud,

giving me a glimpse

of the creativeness of God above.

In my tiny part of the Lords universe,

I sit in knowing the Lord is there.

The first crocus pop their head,

as if they were saying “Lord I’m out of bed.”

The daffodils are poking through the cool ground

with their stems reaching high for the Lord to see.

I saw a bug flying by who said,

“Lord don’t forget about me!”

Sitting in prayer with the Spirit in my heart,

I know this gift is the Lord’s calling card.

It is a thank you note to me,

that I have chosen to live within Thee.

It is in this moment I say to God Almighty,

“Thank you for this day…Thank you for loving me.”

Nothing is Lost!

Antelope Canyon – Page, Arizona
Gregory Boratyn, photographer

****

Nothing is lost!

Lord you create with perfection,
And that perfection is me!
And within this moment the thing I lost
You easily see.
So with your Divine knowledge
I release myself from my human sight.
To see though your Divinity,
What is here in front of me.
Oh Lord, I am most grateful,
For your vision today.
I am most grateful
You lead me on my way.

I started saying this prayer/poem over a year ago in some form or another. Once again today it helped me find what I miss placed. I also use it when I feel a block from my human life filter. Sometimes we need help to know the truth in experiences/situations. So please feel free to use this to help you see what the divine puts in front of you. I love to hear if it helps you find what is miss placed or your vision/thoughts of an experience change.

I am proud to say today is my 1 year anniversary with this blog.  Thank you everyone who reads my words and who has encouraged me in my spiritual journey.  The words you share on your blogs have been inspiring and have helped me grow spiritually and emotionally.   I am most grateful for our friendship.

There is one God… One Presence, One Universal Spirit…  God is the Infinite Spirit and Limitless Conscious Life within who all live.   I live and embrace the God Spirit that flows within me and is me.    There is one thought…one universal reflection of all that is…

I live in unity with THE ALL, in harmony with Universal Law, in peace with all God’s creations and in love of self and others.  As a divine creation of God I am good…I am worthy…and filled with the spiritual energy that flows through me and in me as I am the manifestation of God’s divine plan.  I am a demonstration of Gods goodness and my opportunities are unlimited.

I chose to live in the present with God’s love and energy indwelling and expressing.  I open my mind to universal knowledge and the divine truth as expressed through God.  I see with my eyes the beauty around me…the simplicity of divinity and the magnificence of Spirit.  I speak with my voice the words that Spirit crafts and with these words I share love and joy with others.  My heart is open for the Energy of God to express through love given and received.  It is God’s divine intent that I am deserving of love and loving and I allow my heart to release and receive.  In an open embrace I accept the joys this day brings and I know it is God’s will that I receive all goodness and grace of life.  I allow my feet to travel where the Lord leads me.   I trust in the Spirits manifestation through me as a divine expression of thoughts and joy.  So today I chose to walk within the limitless consciousness of God.  I stand in the light of Knowing that God’s thoughts demonstrate truth….joy…love…and abundance.  I am that Truth…as God is me…and God’s thoughts are my thoughts.  I am the very essence of the divine Universal Energy.   God creates with purpose…with perfection so there can only be perfection in my life with God today.

I am eternally grateful for my unity with God… for the divine experience of thought and the physical reflection this Universal Spirit produces.  My gratitude  over flows as I live in the abundance of this creative process…The God Process…The universal law…and the truth of this law.

I release this prayer knowing the reflection of these thoughts and words will be done…and so it is.

****

Over these past 10 months I have been learning about a new way of praying called, Affirmative Prayer.  I would like to share a prayer I wrote to bring in the Abundance of Joy into my life.  The past three years of my life have been marked by great change, much I controlled and some I did not.  What my spiritual teachers have been teaching me is I can choose to bring joy into my life.  So this pray is about experiencing God’s joy, seeing the beauty of God’s creativity and allowing myself to be led.  For several weeks after I wrote this I said it every morning and many evenings.  It is my belief that this pray with other prayers I wrote have been answered by the words in poetry that I have been posting.  God has so graciously blessed me as his words flow through my fingers to the computer screen.    If this prayer speaks to you please feel free to use it.

A Butterfly flitters,

Across the grass and flower heads.

The rabbit nibbles in the herb bed.

The trickling brook splashes upon the rocks,

Water flows into the pond below.

Fish spawning is as natural as the spring,

My mind wandering is a restful thing.

God settling within my thoughts

Awakens my spirit,

Who quiets the self-talk.

Love within my heart swells,

For the blessings God reveals to me.

Words swirl around my mind each day,

Creating stories for the beauty I see.

Just knowing God is leading me

Is all I need to live so free.

Life exists in a lucid paradise.

A place without time or space.

A place within my mind’s grace.

Lucid, so clear, so easy to see

The truth within me.

A lucid mind creates thoughts with reality.

A lucid mind I don’t fear to see.

So clearly defines my verity.

From the confused and clouded spot

I once lived,

I now understand how my thoughts give.

Lucid…clear…transparent is how I see

For the truth of God has clarified me.

Color Rain” – France – Francois Dorothe – Featured Photographer

What prism do I see my life?

Is it through the eyes of love,

Or the veil of pain?

On what path did I chose to travel?

Is it with God

Or is all alone,

Locked in my human brain.

A place without sight of the glorious light,

A place where my choice

Can be blame.

Who am I to possess the Eternal Flame?

Who am I to scream at the sky,

That my fate is

God’s blame?

Who am I to close my eyes

To the beauty that is there?

Who am I to reject love,

From the Infinite above?

Who am I to reject

My place within the

Divine?

Who am I?

Who am I?

I am…I say

A Child of God

With Eternal Life,

Love of the Holy Core,

Divinity created by the Lord.

God is…

God is…

“I am”

God creates with Love

There is no rejection

From the Spirit above.

There is no apprehension

Of the sacredness

Of all that exist on this earth.

Who am I ?

Who is God?

God is…I am.

I am one,

Within the one,

Within the Infinite

Within the Eternal Flame.

I am one with God.

With love

Without blame.

I am

I am

God is…I am

And Is all…I am

I  am…

I am…
