A Higher Being - Poem by Vanessa Hughes

If you believe in a higher being
And you know he sees it all
You go forward wth a confidence
Whether you rise or fall

If you believe that every lifetime
Is to learn and help you grow
The evolution of each person
The higher being comes to know

If you believe in not hurting
Any living thing
A path towards enlightenment
Is what that journey brings

If you believe we're all equal
And each lifetime's purpose serves
To improve tolerance and empathy
In a run of learning curves

If you believe in reincarnation
Different body, different role
Your trials and tribulations
Bring understanding to your soul

If you believe in a higher being
And you know he sees it all
Unfairness and injustice
Will be karmically restored.

    If you believe in not hurting
    Any living thing
    A path towards enlightenment
    Is what that journey brings.. i have heard Hindu Gurus preaching such ideas of enlightenment. no hurting, a life of love, and mercy to all living beings will lead you to Enlightenment. thank you dear poetess for presenting these ideas.

    We'll all eventually be judged in the end,
    So it all depends on the message we send.

    It's the karmic cycle that takes us all around and finally when the desires fulfilled, salvation is found. A great philosophical poem. I love it. (Report) Reply

    A poet's work is to name the unnameable, to point at frauds, to take sides, start arguments, shape the world, and stop it going to sleep.

    you must have waken many people from their sleep.....bravo ma'am
