"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 out each other is a key to opening the door to experiencing Love within ourselves.

 

COME ON, PEOPLE! written by Jan Spiller

Johnny's trying but he's getting weak
Pushing his rock up the mountain peak
His rock is heavy - about to break through
He needs some help for a moment or two.
Can you take one hand from the rock you bear -
To help him with his load,  his breaking point is near ...

Brother, Sister - help if you can!
All that lasts is a helping hand
All you can take with you
Is what you've given away ...

Melinda now has reached the end
Of the time she can keep on pushing
Her own special burden's too heavy to bear
Her baby's crying, but it's hard to care -
Can you take one hand from your own special load
And let her rest a moment, 'til she can take hold ...

Sister, Brother - help if you can!
All that lasts is a helping hand
All you can take with you
Is what you've given away ...

Humankind is headed up that mountain
Each of us with a special burden
It's sure your Neighbor, the next one in line
Is going to need some help in this lifetime
And it's sure that you, rather strong or weak
Are going to need some help before you reach that peak!

Come on, People - help if you can!
All that lasts is a helping hand
All you can take with you
Is what you've given away ..

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.
