Sitting in a dark room meditating
Sitting ruminating and contemplating
About myself and my life
When out of the dark a voice spoke out
‘content yourself with who you are
With who you discover as you meditate
Rather than concern yourself with who and what others think you are
For that is a perception based on their flaws
This perceived being is not you’.
I sat still in mind absorbing these words
Not surprised to hear this voice.
As I ruminate longer the voice spoke again
‘you are free, you can fly, you be be anything that you choose to be
But others will put you in a cage and clip your wings
They will restrict your ambition and full your passion
And tell you to settle for less.
This is because they wish you not to fly, to soar to achieve
Because their wings have been clipped’.
Once again I sat and absorbed this wisdom.
Finally while contemplating the voice spoke again
There is no happiness in greed but all you need is yours
You just have to manifest it by asking for it and working for it
You have a creative mind and soul as well as eyes that see beauty
You have discovered light by going through darkness
You found love after being subjected to hate
You resonate kindness and compassion
Now share that and put it out to all and you will know wealth
The wealth of wellbeing, of light, love, happiness and inner peace
That is true wealth, true riches, real treasure’.
I sat still absorbed this last piece of omniscient wonder
And stood up, walked to the door
And when I looked out, the light was brighter
The colours much richer, the details much sharper
And everything was more beautiful
And love coursed through my vains like a tsunami wave.
This was a new begining
And I was going to seize this moment.
