Quote Title: Heraclitus
Change is an inherent part of life
We are here to experience and grow
There is nothing permanent except change
Is a Higher Truth many don’t know
All physical life begins and ends
We’re temporarily here to be
Accepting this simple truth
Brings perspective and clarity
Time to share, it’s length unknown
In the NOW is the way to live
Five minutes or one hundred years
Your Loving presence, always give
A baby’s growth and change
Is easy to accept and see
Becoming a toddler and child
Change noticed even daily
Adolescence then an adult
So much changes each year
Shaped by those around them
Their self-identity becoming clear
Out into the world they go
To live their own life
Parents hoping they will
Weather the storms of strife
Each day brings new experience
All interactions are a part
Shaped by their own perceptions
Is how they make a start
We live in an ocean of Energy
Surrounded, it is everywhere
We attract by how we feel
So be mindful in what you share
The ocean is forever in motion
Even floating, the sea will change
To be the Captain of your ship
Inner-discernment you must arrange
You don’t only feed your body
But your mind and spirit too
So give some life-changing thought
To those non-physical diets too
All you read and watch
Can change who you will be
And what you listen to
All these move you in your sea
Who do you spend your time with
On Social Media and physically?
Do you get positive or negative vibes?
Up or down, how do you want to be?
Even the slightest thing
Can make a mark indelibly
And set a new course of change
Do you want a calm, or rough sea?
There Is Nothing Permanent in life
All things will come and go
But you can choose your journey
By changing your direction of flow

About This Poem
I hadn’t realised it had been so many weeks since I last posted, so much has been going on! On choosing one to add today, this one stood out as very relevant to our world at this moment in time, even though it was written many months ago.
There will be some more relevant poems added soon, but here in the meantime is some good advice from Bruce Lipton (stem cell biologist & author/speaker)
“As presented in The Biology of Belief, stress is responsible for up to 90% of illness, including heart disease, cancer and diabetes. When an individual is in stress, the release of stress hormones (e.g., cortisol) shuts down the immune system to conserve the body’s energy for running away from the perceived stressor, that proverbial “saber-toothed tiger.” Stress hormones are so effective at compromising the immune system, that physicians therapeutically provide recipients of organ transplants with stress hormones to prevent their immune system from rejecting the foreign implant.
The conclusion is clear: The fear of the coronavirus is more deadly than the virus itself!
The media (perhaps in conjunction with the pharmaceutical industry) is compromising people’s health using the fear card! This is the result of negative thinking (the nocebo effect) which is the complete opposite of the placebo effect manifest through positive thinking! If you make efforts to stay healthy, with good nutrition, exercise, taking vitamins and supplements, and more importantly, avoiding stress (e.g., the “fear” of the virus), even if you do get infected with the virus, you will likely only end up with a cold and/or slight fever.
If you are someone with a compromised immune system, it is supportive to surround yourself with loving family and friends, nature, and positive thoughts as well as any other nutrition and vitamins that you may already be taking for your health and wellbeing. Following your intuition about what is best for you is key! The point here is that no matter who you are and what your state of health, you will only benefit from steering clear of the fear and supporting yourself in whatever way feels best to you.
Please remember the truth of quantum physics, the most valid of all sciences on the planet: Consciousness is creating your life experiences! Are you being conscious of disease … or of health? Wishing you all Health, Happiness and Harmony.
With Love and Light,
Update: 15th April 2020
Right now keeping positive, as much as possible, is a priority for everyone. Being stressed suppresses the immune system, and with the revelations that are now coming forth it will be very easy to caught up in the high drama of it all. With this in mind, I have compiled a page of links to my poems that are relevant at this time:
About the pandemic
Affirmations to keep focused on God within
Wisdom for 2020
Sympathy poems for comfort
There is also a slideshow of some of the poems with quotes from others too. The page is called ‘2020: Apex Of Duality’
