Seeds of Purity

20120425-071316.jpg

When the world was young and still a Child
I planted a seed out in the Wild,
Although it was a harsh and violent place,
That seed was to flourish and show it’s Grace,

For born are we in Purity,
Formed in a perfect bond of man’s Unity,
The dirt from which our routes do spring,
Do not determine the who we are Within,

Search not outward but inwardly,
For the essence of Love,
For the Warmth of embrace,
For the Faith at the Heart of every Man, Woman and Child,

See not only with thine Eyes
For no mind can ever fully See,

The True Beauty in each of us,

For we are each but one flower in the Garden of Man’s Hope,

Sprouted from the Seeds of Purity

You are where you are meant to be

Right now at this very moment in time, could you consider that this is where you are meant to be?

How often do we say to ourselves:

“I wish I was where he or she was”

“I wish I had his or her life”

“if only I had made this or that decision my life would be different”

“My life shouldn’t have turned out this way”

As human beings we are granted the luxury of free will and have the ability to make choices both good and bad that will have a direct impact on the paths we go on to take on our journey through life.

Granted that the choices life presents you with may be determined by the environment in which you were born into.

But do you have the courage, determination and belief within yourself to tempt ‘would be fate’ and take the necessary action to change your stars and forge a new destiny for yourself?

A destiny different from that from which you were born into?

Or are you consoled to let the once hopeful dreams of a child fade away and die, remaining but flittering thoughts of an innocent soul who’s perception of the world was once full of hope?

Every decision we make has repercussions both good and bad,

But could you conceive that every decision that you have made up until this very moment was the right one for you?

It is my belief that life is a journey and to have become the man I am today I couldn’t have walked any other path.

I used to say to myself:

If I would have finished university, my life wouldn’t have turned out this way….

If that had been my path then I wouldnt have been able to spend time with my mum during the final year of her life, precious moments more valuable than any degree or possible ‘perfect job’ in the present could make up for.

I’m tired of earning low wages, I deserve more money….

Did I really? I’ve earned more money in the past, but my ability to take responsibility and manage my finances has only come to me recently.

Having more money when I thought I deserved it would never had lead to me being able to be grateful for what little I’ve earned and be able to reach a level of maturity to be able to handle all the financial responsibility that comes with being an adult. An inevitability to which I have avoided until now and I’m nearly twenty-six years old.

Whatever trials we face in our life both good and bad lead us to the inevitable point where in that seemingly meaningless moment, we have to make a decision and be able live with the consequences

But take comfort in the fact that no one among us is Perfect

To be able to identify honestly where you were wrong and be able to learn from those mistakes made shows strength in your character and demonstrates that you are growing as a person.

Some of life’s lessons can only be learned through experiencing them first hand.

It’s the lessons from these moments that we carry forward with us and help to forge our character.

Would you really be who you are today had you not lived through every seconds and every moment up until this very point in time?

,You are where you are meant to be

Right now, here in this very moment as you read these words from the page and take each breath in and out.

Treasure every precious moment you have in this Life,

Truly live in the present to be able to experience the beauty in the essence of life in the world all around you.

You can’t change your past but you can learn from each and every experiences and be able to make the necessary changes that will carry you forward into the future.

Whatever your age, where ever you are right now, your story is still yet to be told….

I wish you all the best on your journey

,One day

,One hour,

,One second,

,One moment at a time ๐Ÿ™‚ x

When I learn to feel, my heart will heal,
But how can I truly let go?..,.
and what is stopping me?

If my body be but a shell,
the physical manifestation of my true spirit within.
How then have I strayed so far,
From purity in the essence of my heart…

I’ve lived a lie and have worn a mask,
to protect me from the world,
A world i so desperately wanted to reach out and touch…

But to touch is to let you in…
But how would I start?
And where would I truly begin?

How do I let you see the side that I’ve so desperately fought to hide?
Can I truly pocket my Pride and become the man I’ve so long denied

Or will I forever live a lie?…

The darkness of my mind slowly creeps in,
It’s scares me now more than ever,
Reaching far deeper than I’ve ever been…

And then I see your face… Happiness fills me

But not for long…then comes Fear
Never ending Fear… But why?

I do not know but why…
I so desperately want to let you in…
But how would I start?
And where would I begin?…

Would I start with all thats good in me, my warmth and love and charity?

Yes this is it, this is what I want you to see,
This is the man I’ve so longed to be,

Feel the warmth of my spirit,
The violent yet gentle flame burning within,
Let me wrap my arms around you,
Warming you in my loving eternal embrace,

Reaching out to you and caressing your face

Let me call to you, call you by your Name

Speak words so Sweet, so Pure and Divine,

If all I have to offer you be but a few simple words,
Let the words I speak here today, take root in your Heart,
Let them be the seeds of Life to an everlasting tree of Devine Hope

These are the words I’ve never shared,
The words I’ve so long to but never dared…
To speak to you not with my mouth and lips,
But with my Heart and Eternal Soul

Let me call to you to hear my cry,
Hear the silenced voice of the little boy deep inside,
The man I’ve become bares the scars of false pride,
Standing before you this day is not a Man…But a Child

Clumsy and off balanced as I learn to stand and take that vital first step into the unknown

I feel as if I’m falling… But within you I feel the wings to Fly,
I won’t crash and burn, I’ll launch into flight, Soaring higher than I’ve ever been

Fear grips me by the throat strangling me from the inside,

But something’s different now…

“Take a breathe”…

“It’s ok”…

“Take a breath”

I hear a voice from within

“It’ll be ok, trust in me”

It’s no longer a battle, I no longer have to Win,
Let me head the echoing words of the True voice within

Today in You I see not the end,
I’ve feel the Essence of your Love in you my Friend

But to tell you half a tale would be still a Lie,
I’m still holding you at arms length away… And I don’t know why?..

How do I let you completely in?…
I’ve begun to let you in….
But now I’m scared to truly begin….

How do I take off the mask I’ve worn for so long?
Peel back the layers that I once thought kept me safe,

What will you think of me, when you get to truly see…
That I am not as Perfect as I make out to be…
There’s a whole other side to me…
And there is much of which I am ashamed…

I open my mouth…Nothing
I try again…. Nothing
I’m crippled with fear and I know not why

But then I feel your Touch… Oh how I want you so much

As I stand there looking into your eyes, I finally start to realise,
That you can already see,
Into the deepest depths of me,
To what the eye is blind to, but the Loving Heart can see

And your not Afraid.

You simply take my hand and Smile…

I pause for a while…

What is this I Feel inside? what used to be Fear has now begun to subside,

No longer am I deafened by fears crippling call, fueled by my arrogance and false pride

I no longer wish to Hide!!

I’m Finally ready, it feels natural with you to just be ME

All that I’ve ever wanted to Be

All I am I share with you Now,

Physically, Emotionally, Spiritually

I offer you my hand as we walk into the sun light of the Spirit
Bringing light to festered shadows of my mind
Let the boy within me hear the Beauty of your Lovers call..

At this perfect moment of internal bliss both He and I become One,

I, He, We and then just Me,

Now finally….You and Me

When I learned to Feel,
My wounds were Healed,

I am no longer afraid to let You In
I’ve finally let go and shared with you the essence of my True being,

My Soul within,

I was once Afraid and Blind to See, that the only thing that was stopping Me was….

ME

XxX

Breathe

Take a breath,

It’s a simple act and one we take for granted, but you don’t realise the power contained in such a small action besides the vital act of keeping us alive.

In moments of stress, stop and pause for a moment and take a few deep breaths, this may sound silly but what your doing is releasing all of that built up energy that may be clouding your judgement and making you feel stressed.

From learning to pause for a moment and not just react I can gain a clarity of the situation and see the truth of what my next course of action should be, all by taking a few small breaths….

Learn to stop and see the beauty in the world around you and on days like today, take a while to pause at take in the essence of the life happening all around you.

We only get so many breaths here in this life and how many we get is not important, it’s what we do with them that matters ๐Ÿ™‚ x

Who am I?

Who am I?

I canโ€™t tell you that,

Iโ€™m not the man that I was yesterday,

And Iโ€™m not the man I will be tomorrow,

Who I am is here and now in the present and in the essence of each breath as it passes in and out through my body, which in its simplest form is the basis for life,

 

Be ever mindful of the present,

 

Gazing too far into the future will see life pass you by and you will have missed all of those important steps that you would have needed to take to achieve the goal that you envisaged.

Dwelling too much on the past can leave you trapped in a never ending cycle, you can never again be the person you once were, but here and now in the present you can affect the person that you want to be.

 

So then who am I?

I am ever evolving from one moment until the next, the man you meet today may not be the same man you meet tomorrow, but all of this is okay as long as your willing to grow and embrace the change that comes with life ๐Ÿ™‚ x
