From Endings To Beginnings - Poem by Michael Hopkins

When all has been said and done for this lifetime.

And we bathe in the Light of creation on the other side.

We will look back with fondness at our deeds.

We will be greeted upon arrival by enemies as well as friends.

For, the judgements of ego will have fallen from our being as the leaves from the trees.

The joy of living shall arise and we shall know the Love that eluded us while in human form.

Then we will know what we are and why we came to the place of our birth and why we departed the darkness at the place of our death.

Then will we be at peace and in love with all living things until the next time we decend into the world of forgetfulness.

M.N. Hopkins

    bathing in the Light of creation
    the judgements of ego will have fallen
    from our being as the leaves from the trees.
    Then we will know what we are
    at peace and in love with all living things
    the final conusmation in heaven. before the Almighty God
    where we find peac e and know the reason of our being and our life on earth
    a wonderful meditation..... thank you dear poet. you are very spiritual.
    want to read your poems more and more.. tony
