"ON THE PATH" POEM

On The Path

During the last week of April and the first three weeks of May the SUN is traveling through the sign of TAURUS. Taurus rules that part of us that treasures possessions and has a hard time letting go of the status quo. However, the status quo can lead to stagnancy, and it is by being open to the new that we grow and progress and embrace the vitality of life.

 

GREET THE NEW! written by Jan Spiller

What’s the point of - hanging on?
People come and then they’re gone…
But love itself is always there
It’s just a different face it wears.
 
 
Reach your arms up to the sky - greet the new, in your life
Life sent it, just for you - ‘cause you’re ready for something new
But you gotta let go of what’s already gone!
 
 
What’s the point in hanging on?
Your dream is true but not the form…
What brings you joy in life today
Is gonna change along the way.
 
 
Reach your arms up to the sky - greet the new, in your life
Life sent it, just for you - ‘cause you’re ready for something new
But you gotta let go of what’s already gone!
 
 
What’s the point in hanging on?
Sorrow comes and then it’s gone…
It was just something to go through
But it’s not worth the holding to.
 
 
Reach your arms up to the sky - greet the new, in your life
Life sent it, just for you - ‘cause you’re ready for something new
But you gotta let go of what’s already gone!
 
 
What’s the point in hanging on?
To old mistakes that you’ve outgrown…
It’s not the same you in today
So why expect the same old way?
 
 
Reach your arms up to the sky - greet the new, in your life
Life sent it, just for you - ‘cause you’re ready for something new
But you gotta let go of what’s already gone!

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.
