How quickly time does pass –
One second here, then it is gone.
When things are good it scurries by
Though you hang tightly on.
Yet when in pain or sorrow
Time it seems to slow.
You try to hurry through it,
But there’s nowhere that you can go.
The clock is artificial.
It has a steady beat.
It’s only in your mind, you see
That time can be like feet:
Running one moment
Plodding the next.
It’s movement depends
Upon the context.
The truth is, time is like the clock:
A false creation for your use.
You actually have no need for time
When from your body you’re let loose.
If you wish to understand this
Sit in silence and you’ll see
That when the brain is finally still
From time you are set free.
For at your essence you are spirit –
A being without time
Existing where there’s no time nor space
Where all is quite sublime.
But now as you do walk the earth
Time is there for you to use.
When used to serve and be as Love
There is no time to lose.
About the Poetry
All of the poems in this blog are spirit-inspired. Every word came to me each day for a full year while in deep meditation. I simply wrote what I heard onto a pad of paper in my lap with eyes closed – meaningful, multi-stanza verses in mere minutes. I was unaware of each poem’s theme until I transcribed it later word for word. Each day brought new and wondrous discoveries about the world beyond our five physical senses, incredible wisdom, and messages of hope which I share with you in this blog. The last poems received are displayed below on this page, but the entire collection of 365+ poems are archived here in the left-hand column. You can search by topic or keyword using the search box in the upper left corner. May you find among them just the right message which speaks to your heart.
