You Will Know Your Path.. By The Fun Of It

Title Quote: Abraham-Hicks

Many of us feel there is something
We should be doing that we’re not
Nothing seems quite right for us
No matter what we’ve achieved or got

We all come to Earth with a plan
There is something special we came to do
And nothing will ease this empty feeling
Until we set on our path that’s true

But some of us can’t seem to find the way
Even to ‘see’ the path we should take
It seems there are too many roads to choose
How do we know and not make a mistake?

The secret is to always look for
The thing that you find is fun
What is it that you love to do?
If you had a list, what’s number one?

What is it that eradicates time?
You don’t notice the ticking of the clock
When doing the thing you love
It’s as if time has hit a block

What is it that gets you all fired up?
Burning with a passionate desire
Some way of helping others is the key
To know it’s the path that will raise you higher

You may find you begin many trails
There are an abundance of fun ways to go
But taking many paths won’t fill your aching need
Your progress on ‘The One’ will be too slow

If you find it difficult to make the choice
Which ones could you live without
And which is the one that keeps calling
It may start as a whisper, but becomes a shout

                            ***

In my life I’ve started various paths
Many similar, but I was never quite sure
Which was my one true path I should tread
To fulfil me and make my heart soar

It’s taken me numerous years to realize
One of the earliest I took was my authentic path
But I believe everything happens for a reason
So joyfully I walk on, and at myself I laugh

And now that I know I’m on the right path
I follow its course each and every day
I know in my heart it’s the one for me
No matter what others may say

There are times that I might stumble or fall
The way ahead is not always level or smooth
But I’ll just get back up and carry on
Onwards and upwards I’ll always move

If I have a difficult decision to make
At any junction or crossroads on the way
I always know how to make the choice
Which one would be fun to play?

I know my path by the fun of it
I enjoy what I am doing it’s true
So I hope this poem will shed some light
On the fun path ahead for you

About This Poem

As I mention in the poem, it took me many years to realize what my ‘true’ path was. Although looking back now I can see indications going back to my childhood, there was always something blocking my knowing. I can see now that quite often I would listen to others about what I ‘should’ be doing, but that never brings our true path. Self-doubt and self-criticism were obstacles too. For quite a few years I believed my path was to be a healer, I was told by several mediums that I could heal and I had great success with a new technique (EFT) at that time (2002) when I used it with family members and myself. I ventured into teaching others how to use this amazing self-healing tool. It worked really well on the few people I taught, and I always loved the feeling of helping someone to help themselves, but I can see now that my love and enjoyment for it was not 100%. 

For a while I had two websites going, my Spiritual Quotes To Live By and one called Healing DIY. Eventually I came to realize that I had to let one of them go because I had so much to add to each one and I wasn’t happy with the slow progress with working on two. So, it really came down to the choice of which one could I live without. I felt I am a healer and should be teaching people self-healing, but I knew that I could never live happily without continuing collecting uplifting quotes and writing inspirational poems. This, for me, is definitely more FUN!

Don’t Die With Your Music Still In You

Title Quote: Wayne Dyer

You came here with a message
You came here with a plan
Somehow you would contribute
To elevate your fellow man
Everyone of us is unique
No two are ever the same
Your exclusive inner calling
Is your Souls indelible aim…

Music touches everyone’s Soul
In so many different ways
Relaxing, enlivening, provoking thoughts
Bringing emotions to everyone’s days

Don’t Die With Your Music Still In You

Books are an unlimited way

Art has an abundance of forms
To push your creativity
Whether the artist or the viewer
There’s more going on than what you see

Performers delight us all
In the myriad of ways they choose

Websites and Apps are relatively new
Communications that exponentially grow
Transmitting to the entire world
Positive energy can ultimately flow
If lighting-up through the network

Speeches can be timeless
Simple words touching eternity
Enthusiastic depth of feeling

Charity affects all humanity
A kind, giving nature shows a pure Soul
Working tirelessly, even behind the scenes

Healing is a Divine offering
Coming through an abundance of ways
A doctor or nurse in modern medicine
Or a channeller of Spiritual Rays
If nurturing health and well-being
Is what you came here to do
Share your passion with the world
Don’t Die With Your Healing Still In You

Charismatic people can shine through
Life’s challenges, doubts and fears
Their presence influences others
To be optimistic and wipe away tears
If radiating positive joy
Is what you came here to do
Share your passion with the world
Don’t Die With Your Charisma Still In You

Love is the greatest blessing
To give and to receive
Above all else it is the one true gift
That survives us when we leave
No matter the other reasons
Love Is always what you came here to do
Share your true passion with the world
Don’t Die With Your Love Still In You

About This Poem

I, like many others around the world, felt a change when the wonderful Wayne Dyer made his transition to the other side. His loving presence is now so much closer to us all. From his humble beginnings to becoming the world-renowned author and spiritual teacher, he was, and still is, a source of abundant love, wisdom and inspiration.

I love so many of his enlightening quotes and this one was an easy choice to use for a poem. I began with a list of ideas to cover, obviously music was the first and I also wanted to include websites and writing to remind myself to ‘get on with it!’ I have a close friend who is an artist so that gave me another verse, and performers of stage and screen were an obvious option. The rest just came out in the writing.

I believe we are all here for a reason, whether it’s to become known worldwide or just in a small family group, it makes no difference – everyone is important and has a vital part to play in this game of life.
