Forever on my mind
Forever in my soul
From this moment on
To have and to hold.

Once we were lost
Far from each other
But our journey led us
Back to one another.

Days will go past.
Years will go by,
But our love for each other
Will never die.

To my one and only
My heart is content
Just knowing you darling
My time was well spent.

For whenever we meet again
All that will be said
Once lived a man who cherished
The life that he’d led.

Don’t ever forget
My dear sweet one,
That we’ll be together
Until all time is done.

There’s more my sweetness
Let me just say
I’ll love you forever
Till my dying day.

We’ll never be separate
For we are all One.
Our time on this earth
Has only just begun.

You are with me
And I am with you.
Tell me my sweetness
That you feel it too.

Promise me always
That you will be true
For ours is a divine love
That always renews.

Seasons come.
Seasons may go,
But my love for you
Will continue to grow.

One day much sooner
Than you might believe,
We’ll be together
Just you and me.

This poem came to me in one writing, exactly as you see it here. I call these guided poems because they are downloaded from a source of infinite creativity. You too can learn to be more creative in this way.

A new day, new start.

We get them every day.

Don’t squander the newness

By ruminating on the past.

 

Create a new life,

One that will last.

For your spiritual development

Is the key to everlasting life.

 

Appreciate it.

Own it.

And you will become 

The very best version of yourself.

 

For God’s magic to  unfold,

We must enter this state 

Of living and realize 

We are all “One.”

 

Newness helps us grow 

In that direction

But only if we grasp

It’s great purpose.

Each day anew.

For the goodness of God

Will be brought to you!

Amid the worry

Amid the pain

You wonder

Will I ever be the same?

 

Filled with fears.

Filled with doubt.

You wonder

What’s this journey all about?

 

After your trial comes rebirth.

It will all become clear.

The pain and the worry

Will disappear.

 

You will see clearly

The lessons you learned.

Your new life will be

The one that you yearned.

 

On through the fire

On through the pain.

Seek your desires

And become whole again.

 

Fire and ice

You will have made it through

Be an example to others

And help them too.

 

This is God’s way to teach us a lesson

One we should accept.

For the lessons, we learned

We will never forget.

What if there were no mistakes in life?

What if, no matter which path you chose, it was not wrong, but instead led you right where you were supposed to be?

What kind of freedom would that give you? How much stress and anxiety would that take off your shoulders to know there is no such thing as a “mistake”?

My observation and reflections of life have brought to light that this is indeed true!

You see, those ‘detours’ or what others might call ‘mistakes’ are merely lessons, we are here to learn on our journey through life. Eventually, we all get back on the right path.

The other morning, I was out jogging in Pula, Croatia, making my way from the neighborhood to a walking/jogging path along the sea.

On the way back I was uncertain which way to go at the fork in the road. I picked one way. It turned out not to be the way I had ventured down to the sea. But it ended up back on the main road anyway.

 

The result -  I learned that each path would take me to the sea. Each path would take me back to the main road. And I found a new, different and equally as beautiful way. It made me feel bolder in my choices, more certain of myself, and not afraid of becoming ‘lost’.

 

 

It’s not just jogging in a new city where this applies. Think about your business life, your personal life and your spiritual or religious life. There is always more than one way to get where you want to be. Some would say the circuitous route is the one that led them to their greatest passion.

In business, it has been said that to fail fast and fail often is the quickest way to achieve your goals. Mistakes are often the quickest way to learn!

In personal growth, one is encouraged to reach outside our comfort zone so we can expand and more comfortably handle and enjoy our lives. Going out into the unknown will sometimes result in ‘mistakes’ or ‘lessons’, but that is all part of the growth process. We won’t grow at all if we don’t try.

It seems to me that the biggest mistake is not to stretch at all.

In spiritual or religious circles, the mantra is more of accepting that God or your higher power has a plan for us already and it’s up to us to discover and experience it.

With these thoughts in mind, why would we worry if we fail?? The worst that could happen is we’d be closer to where we want to be and will learn something along the way.

This brings me back to my point – if we knew we wouldn’t fail – what would we do?

I encourage you to be brave unafraid to fail and dream ‘What if?’ This is something we each need to learn to do.

Want a better life?

Don’t we all.

What are you waiting for -

A personal call?

 

What are you willing to give?

How much can you take?

To meet that goal

There’s a price to pay.

 

It’s paid with effort.

It’s paid with sweat.

Keep on trying

Till the goal is met.

 

Time and patience

Will take care of the rest.

Often people believe money solves everything and automatically leads to a happy life. Many of us grow up believing these types of thoughts.

There are two things amiss with this type of thinking. First, you are stating indirectly that you are not happy now. You are stating that your happiness is dependent on something else (having enough money). You are not appreciating where you are now. You are ignoring the happiness you have. You are not being happy in the present.

The other issue is the “if only” syndrome. We spend so much of our time telling ourselves that “if only I had more money” then I’d be happy. In this way, we are withholding our own happiness. We are using this excuse to avoid being happy now.

These types of behaviors and thoughts are common, but if we want to change them, we must first be aware of them! Some suggestions are telling yourself:

  • I am working towards my financial goals.

  • I appreciate my many blessings.

  • I am happy now as I work toward my goals.

  • I am proud of myself for working diligently towards the life I envision for myself.

REMEMBER THE VALUE OF MONEY IS NOT IN THE MONEY ITSELF. Rather, the value comes from what money can do to improve your life, such as save time or have an experience you will remember.

Choose wisely.

The cool winds blow

The trees sway with the rhythm

Of a new day.

The birds chirp

‘Good morning’ in a familiar way.

 

The sun has made it’s

Majestic appearance.

A new day has begun.

Where it will lead,

What will be done

How it will all interface,

Is up to God

And our free will.

 

The choices we make will

Lead us on our path.

The path to salvation

Of all mankind.

For although the days

Aren’t numbered,

Only God knows where

Our journey will lead.

 

He has written our life on sheets of stone

In centuries past

Waiting for us to fulfill

His great prophecies,

His great and wonderous plan.

 

The plan of creation,

One where we learn and grow

And become all we can be,

All we can know.

 

For we are nothing more

Than little (although powerful) cogs

In the great mechanism called ‘Life’.

A true blessing has been bestowed on us all.

 

Let us not forget our worthy purpose and each do our part

To move mankind forward

To a new kind of life.

One where we love each other,

And there is no strife.

All of life is harmonious and has a sense of flow

And meaning far beyond current man’s comprehension.

 

Yes, Heaven on Earth,

Is what it will be.

Mankind’s greatest accomplishment.

You will see.

Now is a great time to reevaluate our lives! During the summer of 2019, I did just that when I spent nearly a month in Pula, Croatia. The purpose of my visit was to immerse myself in another culture (my paternal family’s culture) and experience the life-changing experience of attending Mind Valley University (MVU).

My expectations of listening to great thought leaders and mingling with other like-minded individuals were totally met! It was beyond wonderful to experience the wise lessons of Marisa Peer, Eric Edmeades, Srikamar Rao, and others, along with our fearless leader, Vishen Lakhiani and MV co-founder Kristine Mand-Lakhiani.

But it was surprising to learn so much more! Something totally unexpected: Not only do other people envision a different type of lifestyle for themselves and their family, but they are brave enough to actually follow through with their dreams! They showed me through their individual actions that anyone can truly design and live a life they have imagined!

Everyone’s traditional expectations of how to live are pertinent to their part of the world, their culture and their upbringing. In my corner of the world, it’s expected to live well financially by having a career. It’s expected you will be married, have children and live in the same home or community most of your life.

Growing up (at least in my household), there was no mention of following your heart, listening to your soul, or asking God what you were to accomplish or do in your life.

The closest nudge I ever had in that direction was my father saying he just wanted me to be happy.  His advice was pretty much ignored until recent years because I had been busy working on the rat race of life vying for financial success.  It was only after realizing that money itself didn’t make me happy that I began to search for answers. Only then did a quest for happiness (or joy and fulfillment) even hit my radar.

To understand further, one needs to know a bit more about Mindvalley University and just what we are learning. Vishen Lakhiani, the co-founder, explained it best by saying MV teaches what our traditional schools do not. Yes, MV teaches business and marketing and other types of self-development, but they teach much more. They teach how to connect with others, embracing ourselves, soul development, spirituality, finding purpose in life, how to be better parents, and how to create the life we want. They expose our cultural brules (bull-shit rules). MVU shows us that life is ‘limitless.’

My description would be that Mind Valley creates people from the inside out.

Once you understand the MV Community, you can better understand the possible lifestyle choices.

Take, for example, Martin Daniels and his wife, Sally, from the United Kingdom. Martin was an IT Consultant by profession. They lived in Swindon and had seemingly the perfect life.  Boredom and unease triggered a move to Croatia to find a new way of living, but this only changed their outside world.  The real changes started a few years later when he was lost and depressed and he set out to search for more.  He spent tons of money on personal development and threw caution to the wind. He stretched his boundaries, literally and figuratively.

For three years their life was in turmoil including a near-miss divorce.  Over the last two years they moved back to the UK, and after only three months decided to embark on an adventure. They sold all their possessions and went to see the world, taking their teenage children out of mainstream education.

They lived as one might call ‘vagabonds’ living in countries like Estonia, Croatia, Greece, Bali and Australia.  Martin built a coaching business that he can enjoy (and still make money) while not being tied to a desk. They immersed themselves in the culture of learning, growing and connecting. This included the children as well. He is much happier now and the family has grown in ways that they could not have imagined. You can find out more about Martin at www.reallybeingyou.com.

Then there is Jeanene Tracy, who is a New Zealander, currently living in the Gold Coast and working in Melbourne, something she jokes it is the real ‘Tale of Two Cities ‘. She is a self-described ‘wanderer.’

She co-created and facilitated for the MV children and teen classes during our time in Croatia, but her main purpose is to experience life – through embracing and inspiring as many people as possible and immersing herself in the local culture. An example of this was a bus trip she took out of Pula. She asked for a ticket on the next bus going further than an hour and had no idea ‘where’ the bus was going.  To challenge her introvert by connecting with the locals, she asked friends to contribute some words and thoughts which she needed to find within the community, creating an instant adventure. Talk about a positive attitude!

She has always instilled this sense of living and loving life to the fullest in her children who are now young adults and also embrace world adventures. Feel free to check out Jeanene’s current escapades here.

Another bright light was Jade Green – the always bubbly persona from New South Wales, who is constantly on the go – through Europe and Asia – taking her leadership and marketing skills, as well as enthusiasm with her. Her office is her laptop at the local café or bistro. She has a consulting and marketing business that she manages on the road. She in undaunted by the noisy traffic, money exchanges, frequent moves and meeting new people constantly. In fact, she’s energized by it! You can connect with Jade here. 

These are just a few examples of alternative lifestyles presented to me while at MVU.

I hope I have enlightened others to live outside the box, or at least outside the traditional scenario of their home of origin. There are many ways to carve out the life you have always imagined.

Let there be no barriers to the life you want to create!

Remember: It’s never too late to start living your best life!

 

I want to personally thank all the new people I met at Mind Valley University in Pula this summer. You are truly a wonderful group of souls! It helped me tremendously to know there are other folks out there with the same vision – to contribute to raising the consciousness of the planet in our own ways. Back home in Central California, sometimes it seems like there is “nobody like me” and I must admit it has been a difficult thing to absorb/understand. Now that I have met many similar souls, it gives me the courage to be more authentic in my everyday life. I know life is a process, and now I feel much more aligned to my truth. Thank you for that!

These poems about souls connecting came to me as guided experiences.

What is guided poetry?

It is an idea for a poem that comes to me in a meditative state. It's different than a download, which is receiving something in its entirety from my Spirit Guides, the Creator or other spiritual sources. I feel guided through feelings as I am composing it. I wrote my poetry for many years before sharing it with anyone, much less publish it for all to see.

What is the meaning of each poem?

That is for you to decide. Yes, these were poems that I was guided to write and quite often they spoke to times and situations in my life, but since we are all connected, I know that there will be something that speaks to you as well.

Questions to ask yourself.

Why are you looking for poems about souls connecting? Did you lose someone? Did you find someone? Are you searching for someone? Take time to reflect and feel your own connectedness to "All That Is."

 

Remnants of Our Souls

The water rushes over the rocks.
One by one uncovering what remains.
The remnants of our souls
Laid bare for all to see.
Those sacred places where the water has touched and shaped our souls into their present state.

A blessed activity,
The shaping of our souls.
We help each other to do the shaping.
Never forget how we are interconnected.

Never forget that even our souls are One Universal Consciousness.

 

Home

Those first kisses
Tender and true
That’s how I remembered you.

A knowing; a wanting
Safe and secure
A Love rediscovered
Once it matured.

Lost lifetimes ago
I’d been searching in vain
Wondering why things
Were never the same.

Somehow my soul and
My body knew
But my mind wasn’t sure
Just what to do.

Laid my head on your chest
Felt your warm embrace
Such tenderness took me
To a new place.

The place I call home
Where I’ll always be
Where I am with you
And you are with me.

Home’s not a house
But a feeling instead.
One that lingers
Long after life’s been shed.
