"ON THE PATH" POEM

On The Path

During the last week of March and the first three weeks of April, the SUN is traveling through the sign of ARIES. Aries is that part of us that is raw courage... that goes boldly into new situations with the underlying purpose of discovering ourselves at a deeper and more vibrant level. 

Aries is the innocent child, very interested in the here and now. It doesn’t take into account future security needs or the reactions of others - it follows its own instincts and consequently demonstrates integrity and authenticity. It takes courage to make spirited new starts in our lives, and the energy of Aries gives us the boldness to independently follow our inner sense of Truth.

 

THE TIME OF TRANSITION written by Jan Spiller

Back in the Dark, you were alone
Hang-ups a plenty and nowhere was Home
Caught in between the Karma of your Past
Playing old Tapes, feeling helpless…
 
 
The Time of going back and forth along the way
The Time of holding onto parts of yesterday
It's now gone, along the way
The Time of Transition - is NOW!
The Time of Transition - is NOW!
The Time of Transition - is NOW!
 
 
Then came the Light and you started to see
A way of doing things differently
You followed the Light, cautious at first
And found that way lead you past your old Thirsts…
 
 
The Time of going back and forth along the way
The Time of holding onto parts of yesterday
It's now gone, along the way
The Time of Transition - is NOW!
The Time of Transition - is NOW!
The Time of Transition - is NOW!
 
 
Now things have changed, you're half there and half here
Playing some old Tapes - on others, you're clear
Time to let go of holding both sides
Time to break with the old, hold only the Light!
 
 
The Time of going back and forth along the way
The Time of holding onto parts of yesterday
It's now gone, along the way
The Time of Transition - is NOW!
The Time of Transition - is NOW!
The Time of Transition - is NOW!
 
 
No more time to consider going easy and slow
You now have a chance to really let go
Put attention on the Light, there's no other way
Consistent in conduct each minute, each day.
 
 
The Time of going back and forth along the way
The Time of holding onto parts of yesterday
It's now gone, along the way
The Time of Transition - is NOW!
The Time of Transition - is NOW!
The Time of Transition - is NOW!
 
 
The Gate to before is now a closed door
The Slate is wiped clean, don't look back anymore
The Light is exposing the traps you were caught in
Take the Rare Chance to start over, again!
 
 
The Time of going back and forth along the way
The Time of holding onto parts of yesterday
It's now gone, along the way
The Time of Transition - is NOW!
The Time of Transition - is NOW!
The Time of Transition - is NOW!

These poems were originally song lyrics that gave me the practical advice I needed for successfully traveling on the spiritual path.  I did what the songs said and they - in combination with the objective knowledge of astrology and the help of Enlightened Teachers - have made me free.  I offer this poetry in the spirit of wanting to pass on the gift of these messages to you.
