"ON THE PATH" POEM

On The Path

During the last part of January and the first three weeks of February, the SUN is traveling through the sign of AQUARIUS. Aquarius is that part of us that rules our Humanitarian instincts... an awareness of our brothers and sisters and the importance of looking out for one another. Helping each other is a key to opening the door to experiencing Love within ourselves.  

It is the AQUARIUS part of us that is in touch with fundamental equality as a paramount value and truth. Thus, it is against the superficial nonsense of denying opportunity on the basis of sex, race or religion. Everyone has an equal chance to rise on the basis of inborn skills, talents and intelligence.   As we move into the Aquarian Age, the principles of equality, fairness, awareness of the big picture, creating win-win situations and looking out for our brothers and sisters all over the world will become more manifest in the way we all live our lives.

 

A NEW DAY! written by Jan Spiller

The old ways are changing in a hurry
They never worked anyhow
In the old days the old ways might get you by
But the old ways will never work now.

It's a new day of freedom for the people
It's a new day and no one has to be bound
Look around, no more pretending
Look around, no one to keep you down...

It's a new day of freedom for the people
It's a new day and no one has to be bound!
The old ways were allowed in the old days
There were masters and slaves that they used

There was reason to fear, reason to not care
But the old days are behind us, they're gone.
It's a new day of freedom for the people
It's a new day and no one has to be bound

Look around, no more pretending
Look around, no one to keep you down...
It's a new day of freedom for the people
It's a new day and no one has to be bound!

The old ways of pretending we weren't hurting
Compromising just to survive
But the old ways aren't needed in a new day
And the dawn of a new day's hit the skies!

It's time to leave the old ways behind us
It’s time to step into our power
Finally it's happened, the new day of freedom 
It's time to start being more real.

It's a new day of freedom for the people
It's a new day and no one has to be bound
Look around, no more pretending
Look around, no one to keep you down...

It's a new day of freedom for the people
It's a new day and no one has to be bound!

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.
