All That Is...
by Eve Spiritsinger
Age Group: Adult
Misguided by the silence of an inner voice,
that fell on deaf ears.
Misguided for so long,
by my fear, ...
of my having beliefs,
beliefs...that my heart guided my soul by,
and that my soul guided my life by.
Deep seeded with a truth I held dear,
of my hidden faith,
faith...that was the salvation I craved for,
and the salvation, of the faith I prayed for.
Yet found between the lines of my poetry,
was a deeper meaning~
Inside me, there was music,
music...that clearly defined my sense of being.
Still only half believing...
my very soul sang out,
and the song became clearer...
each note grew stronger...
until my ears rang with the very sounds of the Earth.
Music surrounded me.
My heartbeat pounded in me,
like the drum leading the symphony.
A symphony of Nature's own creation,
leading me through the motions~
of realization...simple notions...
of having something to believe in...
a spirit to have faith in,
and faith...in my own spirit.
And that, was when I began to understand, ...
that what "God" is, was all around me, within me...
holding me close...singing to my soul,
knowing...that I am a part of something greater...of something whole.
A collective Spirit, that joins every fibre~ of every strand of life,
in all the Worlds, and in all the Cosmos
We exist apart, ...
but when even one beating heart ceases,
another is born,
keeping the balance of existance flowing~
never stopping, never slowing.
To know I am a small part of this web, ...
a web of infinate design.
How can I, even in my own mind...believe
that nothing else exists
outside this World of Mankind~
to believe so, would be unjustly narrow of mind.
The World's existance does not depend on us,
we however, depend on it.
This Universe does not yield for us, ...
so we must...somehow...
find the wisdom, that only our true inner soul can reveal, ...
Put aside our fear.
Let our faith heal.
Open our hearts....
Open our minds....
Free Our souls, ....
from the bondage of our crimes.
Allow all that was, go...
And all that is, be...
And all that will be,
shall endure, and go beyond
this time and this place~
becoming again the Bond.
And when We; the Human race, can humbly see, ...
beyond what is physical boundary,
to the core of all that is spiritual....
then, and only then...
have We discovered, ...
~Our saving miracle.
Eve (Lull) ) 10/26/99
Author's Notes: I just wish to point out that I use the term "God" in this poem. I believe in the presence of a God aspect that combines the masqueline and feminine together. Thus creating the complete God form. I prefer to use the terminology the Divine One, but for the sake of showing others that it was a turning point for me (a light went on, and I finally had complete understanding in my own mind) of what living as a Wiccan truly is, I used the word "God" as it was the only aspect I grew up with in a presbyterian home.
I also wish to mention that I wrote this on the day my husband and I celebrated our 9th anniversary. A very important number to a Wiccan. Perhaps that is why I felt the enlightenment of understanding on this particular day above all others.
