Words From A Master Poem by Mike Barrett

Words From A Master

Rating: 5.0

You come to me
Asking for experiences -
What good
Are my experiences
To you?
You have not lived them -
They are not your reality!

Than ask me,
Live your own!

Let go of your fear to live
And live!

Trust the IT IS.
Trust the MASTER.
Live always with these three.

In doing so
You’ll come to lose
Your fear.

You’ll come to understand
And know
That the truest
And the highest
Lives within
Is no different from
Your unique Self
Your divine Self!

Truth of trusting ourselves in the life we lead, fear is natural but when life becomes something to be afraid of that is when joy waves goodbye. Superb write!

Hi Padmanabhan, thanks for your comment, it's much appreciated. For me, we are all spiritual beings, each an eternal soul. Life is an exercise of growing eternal knowingness. At a certain point we come to know we are guided, and if wise, listen to the wisdom provided. May the blessings be!

Here the sagacity of a great master who has delved deep into the mystery of man's existence is beautifully brought out! Everything lies within one's own self, the life within! There is something similar I have written about a sage who penetrates beyond the periphery of a man and comes out with a startling conclusion! I invite you to read that poem entitled Transformation

Hi Hazel, Thanks for your input, much appreciated! Not only do I trust myself, I have a tremendous faith in what I call the IT IS (God) . I've always had it and it has served me well over this lifetime. Cheers & put a smile in your heart!
