Purpose for Living

Alison L. JamesPoetry

Let us start life afresh and
Be born again in soul, spirit and body.
Stop the endless repetition,
Banging our heads against the wall
Like crazed madmen in a cell.
Break that negative thinking of
I can’t, I won’t, I musn’t, I shouldn’t,
Stand tall and shout
I AM, I can, I will,
I’m great, it’s mine,
I AM all that I want to be.

Stimulate the pineal eye of your mind,
Bridge the gap between the ten percent you use
And the ninety percent you don’t.
Imagine your thoughts are light beams
Shooting out into the universe
Sending messages to infinite forces
Waiting to magnetize back
The substance of things you hope for.

Do not interrupt the flow of abundant thoughts,
Surround them with unconditional love,
And forgive all those who have trespassed against you,
Including you.
The world is in you,
Everything you need is waiting on the inside of you,
Waiting to be placed in order
And under God’s divine grace
So that you can be the I AM.

Faint not, command your faith and endurance
Against all odds,
Know that God has provided
The way, the truth and the life.
He so loved the world that He gave
His only begotten Son who
Willingly suffered, and bled and died,
So that you and I may learn to ascend
And have eternal life …

… not like life on earth, where we endure
pain and difficulties to learn,
But a limitless, timeless zone
Where we are immersed in deep, deep love,
Where colors dazzle with a brilliance
Not yet seen through human eyes,
Where all knowledge may be revealed
In the blink of an eye,
Where beauty, love and His Presence
Are revealed in truth.

Oh, let me cross over
And return to Thy precious Love and Wisdom
And infinite Presence
Beyond human flesh.
Let me remember,
To constantly renew the Mind
And die to the senses day by day,
And draw closer to All You Are,
To go from glory to glory.
