"ON THE PATH" POEM

On The Path

During the last week of November and the first three weeks of December, the SUN is traveling through the sign of SAGITTARIUS. Sagittarius brings the gift of seeing life as an adventure and thus has a bigger picture of what’s going on that empowers it to see beyond temporary upsets.

We can learn from the sign of Sagittarius to take life more lightly and thus have a greater feeling of joy along the way.

 

IT'S JUST A TRIP! written by Jan Spiller

Woke up today not feeling right

I sensed that something was wrong
Tell you the truth, I didn't feel too good
And I did not feel too strong…
I looked ahead and wondered if
I was coming into a Test
Maybe I wasn't ready for it
And that's why I felt unrest.
 
 
But it was just a Trip, and isn't the Truth of me
There's nothing even I have to do
But just keep walking straight on through
'Cause it's just a Trip and isn't the Truth of me!
 
 
 
I got to thinking it was that Test
That had me feeling down
Maybe I wouldn't handle it right
And be able to go further on…
Got to thinking it was a big thing
I had plenty of reason to fear
Though I know that fear's a dead-end street
I couldn't see it clear.
 
 
But it was just a Trip, and isn't the Truth of me
There's nothing even I have to do
But just keep walking straight on through
'Cause it's just a Trip and isn't the Truth of me!
 
 
 
The more I thought, the worse it got
Filled me with such dread
And it was far into the night
Before I saw what was really being said…
It's ok to be feeling down
And it's ok to be sick
It's ok to be short of cash
'Cause it's just a Trip!

 

 

And it’s just a Trip, and isn't the Truth of me

There's nothing even I have to do
But just keep walking straight on through
'Cause it's just a Trip and isn't the Truth of me!
 
 
 
Situations rise and then they fall
This world's so full of change
There's nothing really we have to do
And nothing to rearrange…
There's a Divine Plan at work
Everything's perfect as it is
Why not kick back and just watch
Instead of caught in the appearance...
 
 
'Cause it's just a Trip, and isn't the Truth of you
There's nothing even we have to do
But just keep walking straight on through

'Cause it's just a Trip - it isn't the Truth of you!

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.
