ON THE PATH POEM – It’s Last day

During the last week of April and the first three weeks of May the SUN is traveling through the sign of TAURUS. Taurus has the perseverance to get through any obstacle. It is that part of us that is willing to go through repetition to attain the victory We all have the sign of Taurus somewhere in our natal charts and can call upon that energy.

Whenever we have a goal, we must go through the steps involved in getting from point A to point B. Its a process. From time to time, the idea of giving up may occur to us. In those moments, it is the steadfast determination of the Taurus part of us that we can turn to for the unswerving tenacity to keep putting one foot in front of the other until the goal is reached.

The Spiritual Path requires the same quality of tenacity as a material goal. To obtain the rewards of the Spiritual Path -freedom, personal empowerment, mastery, fearlessness, equilibrium, compassion, serenity, peace of mind – requires the determination to confront and break through the shadow side known only to oneself. It’s more than just ‘talking the talk’ – freedom is obtained by ‘walking the walk’.

IT’S LAST DAY
written by Jan Spiller

Although I could see, I knew from the start
There was a dark spot still blocking my heart
I was wondering how to get free …
When Life brought you to me.
Little did I know, how could I suspect
I’d be reexperiencing the greatest hurt I’ve had
But this time, with my eyes open
Go through all the pain, still watching.

There were so many warnings
But I did not see a single sign
With my self-will I walked down the road
I’d traveled before so blind…
How could it be, I would not see
With the long, long way that I’ve climbed
The pattern etched on my Soul for so long
Has seen its last day this time!

It all seemed so easy and natural
As I set myself up for my own private hell
Of course, it was easy- I’d done it many times
But I was asleep and didn’t see my own lines.
Isn’t it strange how blind we can be
To the patterns that make up our own misery
And we do it again just the same old way
Until we catch onto it one day.

There were so many warnings
But I did not see a single sign
With my self-will I walked down the road
I’d traveled before so blind…
How could it be, I would not see
With the long, long way that I’ve climbed
The pattern etched on my Soul for so long
Has seen its last day this time!

We try to deny it but the pattern is strong
Of the steps that we followed each time it went wrong
I was ready- Life brought me a repeat and then
In a day I went through it all over again.
And the pain that I went through so many years ago
Came to the surface and I watched the whole show
When you go through it with your eyes open and see
You never go back to the way it used to be!

There were so many warnings
But I did not see a single sign
With my self-will I walked down the road
I’d traveled before so blind…
How could it be, I would not see
With the long, long way that I’ve climbed
The pattern etched on my Soul for so long
Has seen its last day this time!
