Heather Burns

The Souls Pathway

We each must search through the
darkness to find our own way
steer our vessel to a safe harbor

once a soul has found it's true
path and completed the work it
has been sent here to do, it
will then evolve to a higher

energy never dies it just keeps
changing forms
when we are asleep our minds open
allowing information to enter

Whenever we go out it is part of
the souls pathway. Death is not
the end just a stepping stone to
a higher plane

For in the end immortality awaits.

    Loved your poem. However I have one comment to make. You have written:
    once a soul has found its true
    path and completed the work it
    has been sent to do....
    If every soul is leading a pre-ordained path then there would be no sinner nor any saint. The role of Mind and Soul in charting the course of life is a very complex matter and has defied resolution except perhaps through the concept of 'Karma' which again
    would necessitate acceptance of concept of 'Rebirth' and 'Transmigration of Soul' (Report) Reply

    Death is not
    the end just a stepping stone to
    a higher plane)))
    I believe it so...

    Perhaps what you say is a universal law of nature. To be born, procreate & vanish, yet exist eternally. May I request you to have a dekko on Pilgrimage to immortality. The soul's pathway is 'Karma' - the very cause & reason for one's existence (nothing to do with religion but a way of life) .
    A beautiful read & great depth in the thought. Thank you for the share. (Report) Reply

    Death is not the end
    just a stepping stone to higher plane.

    I to follow your path, this too makes death possibly a little easier to bare. A great title too. (Report) Reply
