"ON THE PATH" POEM

On The Path

During the last part of July and the first 3 weeks of August, the SUN is traveling through the sign of LEO.   Leo rules that part of us that is the conscious will- the decision to make something happen and the strength and determination to follow through and do it!  It is the sign of victory- the enthusiasm and the self-confidence to take a risk to obtain a greater playground of activity.

We all have the sign of LEO somewhere in our charts.  If we have planets in that sign, the qualities, temperament, and drives of LEO are emphasized in our nature.  If not, those qualities are operative to a lesser extent although we can still call upon that part of ourselves to rise when we decide to do so.

The quality of DETERMINATION to see something through to completion is part of the LEO nature.  When we draw upon this aspect of ourselves we can reach greater heights- rather they be materialistic or spiritual in nature.

 

VICTORY written by Jan Spiller

Well I must be ready or I wouldn't be here
Another step to take, another hang-up to clear
Must be time to get it straight in my mind!
I know that life brought you to me
To clear up the past, get it straight at last
So here we are with some testing to pass!

Can't keep our eye on losing
If we really want to win
Take our minds off yesterday
And how it might have been
Keep our eyes on being
The vision we see now
Got to keep on moving in
The right here - right now!

I know we can do it or we wouldn't be in it
With the Victory, so clear to see
Keep walking through it to the other side!
Summon the strength to make it on through
Keep seeing what to do, and doing it
Leave behind all the hang-ups and pride!

Can't keep our eye on losing
If we really want to win
Take our minds off yesterday
And how it might have been
Keep our eyes on being
The vision we see now
Got to keep on moving in
The right here - right now!

Well, I know we must risk losing it all
To make it through here, and it's not clear
What the lesson is to be gained!
Though the price may be losing it all
Let's take a chance for freedom at last
The chance for us to get beyond the past!

Can't keep our eye on losing
If we really want to win
Take our minds off yesterday
And how it might have been
Keep our eyes on being
The vision we see now
Got to keep on moving in
The right here - right 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.
