"ON THE PATH" POEM

On The Path

During the last part of February and the first three weeks of March, the SUN is traveling in the sign of PISCES. Pisces stimulates that part of us that has to do with trusting. It’s where we can see the vision of a Higher Power being in charge and thus we become willing to take risks in the outer world that by ourselves we would not have the courage to embark upon. 

It may be the risk of expressing ourselves differently, or communicating a truth that we feel will annihilate us if we reveal it. Successfully walking the Spiritual Path requires trusting that a Higher Power is in charge and that if we do ‘right action’ in our lives, that same Power will assure our safety.

 

TRUSTING written by Jan Spiller

I never have been inside before      
I’ve stood at the door and just knocked
Trying to get in
But I always knew that one day I’d be in this place I could see
So I watched it - I kept on believing. 
 
 
And now that I’m here, it wasn’t so hard  
To become what I saw and believed in my heart  
It’s so much more than words but I had to do my part  
And the hardest part was… it took so much trusting.
 
 
Never in my life did I want it so bad
Gave up doubts I had
All my questions, I just wanted in
I could not see on the other side so I gave up my pride
And reservations - kept on trusting.
 
 
And now that I’m here, it wasn’t so hard  
To become what I saw and believed in my heart  
It’s so much more than words but I had to do my part  
And the hardest part was... it took so much trusting.  
 
 
From time to time I felt I was dying
Such a battle raged inside, some part of ego died
And I could feel it
Nothing in this world dies quite so hard as identity’s guard
For protection - but I wanted in.
 
 
And now that I’m here, it wasn’t so hard  
To become what I saw and believed in my heart  
It’s so much more than words but I had to do my part  
And the hardest part was... it took so much trusting.

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.
