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!
