Quote Title: Seneca
Life is full of challenges
No one has an easy path
Accepting this simple truth
Can bring a smile and a laugh
It can seem others have it easy
But in truth we do not really know
The burdens they have and carry
Could we rise above their blow?
Some say life is like a school
We come to learn our lesson
Challenges are needed to grow
From the day our life begun
Seeing the Higher perspective
Can bring Light to everything
In the Eternal Oneness
‘All is well,’ the Soul will sing
But sucked into the nitty-gritty
Negativity fed, day-by-day
Moving forward is not easy
Unless, you know the way
Always reach for the thoughts
That uplift. or feel the best
You will soon feel improvement
Whatever your challenge, or test
Keep moving onwards and up
Raising your thoughts, traveling on
In time life will be easier
The dreaded darkness will be gone
Let go, release the negative
From your life of the past
Remembering only the joys
Will bring you peace at last
And if you ever stumble
On the road ahead
Check you map of focus
Doesn’t picture your dread
Bless and erase the block
The power is always yours
Don’t stumble over something behind you
Forever forward is your true course

About This Poem
Lately I’ve been fascinated by reading the poems I wrote in 2019 (the year before our world changed) and their revelence to what has been happening. Today, looking for a poem to add (from the titles in my drafts list) this one grabbed my attention and after reading the poem I knew it was the one for today, as it’s so relevant to my life for the past few years and especially my recent notice of my ‘stumble!’
Once I began to understand the Law of Attraction (2010) I would only write about positvity, apart from slightly mentioning the opposite for clarity. Then in a series of synchronicities (that confirmed to me to continue) in summer 2018 I began to write about the darkness that has dominated our world for centuries, but is now being eliminated by the Light.
From the very start of the ‘plandemic’ what we were being told made no sense to me, so I never believed the media or government. However, I soon found out that something was indeed going on and only time would tell for it all to come out into the open. Back in 2020 I thought it would all be coming to Light by 2021, so I began to daily check-in with the ‘news’ to see what was being said. I had not followed the news at all since learning of the Law of Attraction as I knew it was focused on high drama and negative stories. I knew it was used to manipulate the masses and was also not based on truth. However, I believed that by dipping in daily I could find out how things were going for the good, but not be sucked into the negativity because I chose to focus on the Light.
Then, in 2021 I came to realise that it was going to take much longer because the only way for the masses of people to wake up to what has been going on is to show them, letting them experience the obsurdities in their own lives. If the truths were given suddenly, laying it all out bare for everyone to see, there would be such a mass shock to the majority of people that it would cause too much harm in so many ways. However, I continued to daily check-in with what was being put out there for the masses. There were some indications of truths coming out, so I was ever hopeful that ‘soon’ it would all flow.
And into 2022 I continued as before, but I distracted myself from the worldly going-ons by putting a lot of my time doing something I enjoyed (family tree research) and that helped. As the months passed – so fast – I realised that I was not as positive and uplifted as I used to be, and had no desire to write any new poems.
On 22nd July, just glancing through my Facebook feed I came across this quote and although it was something I already ‘knew,’ it really HIT me and from that day I stopped looking at any mainstream news.
You cannot look at that which you do not want and not join and perpetuate that vibration. Take your attention from that which is not in harmony with who you are, and your ‘now vibration’ will adjust to who you really are – and then you can uplift others. – Abraham-Hicks
I realised that by putting my daily attention on the news, however short a time and my focus, I was regularly ‘joining and perpetuating that vibration.’ I also acknowledged that by following several ‘Truthers’ I was continually waiting for something to happen, instead of living my own truth. So I drastically reduced watching them, being very selective on where I put my attention. Just doing these two things, in only a few days I began to notice a difference in how I felt, for the better.
Today before writing this part of my post, I wrote my first poem of this year, and ‘being selective on where I put my attention’ is what it’s all about! (not intended as I wrote that) At the moment it’s called ‘Your Menu.’
I could wish I’d noticed by stumble over something behind me much sooner than I did, but “Life is full of challenges, no one has an easy path, accepting this simple truth, can bring a smile and a laugh!” I was never sure about the last line of the first verse on this poem, which is why it’s been waiting in my drafts for over three years. Now it’s more evidence of Diving Timing (for me) as today these words fit so perfectly, as I smile and even laugh at my humaness in not following my own advice!
Update 26th May 2023 – The Great Awakening
As I go through adding relevant poems to this category (and for a book) this one obviously needed to be included, not only because we truly need to focus on moving forward, but also my ‘About This Poem’ observations of my own stumbling noticed last year!
I still don’t follow mainstream news etc.. and also do my best to steer clear of alternative speakers of doom & gloom. I truly believe we are heading for a beautiful world full of Love & Light, but, to get there Light has to be shone on the darkness to eliminate it, while we remain focused on our road ahead.
