The Mind

When your mind

Tells you something

Ask your Self

Is it true

 

The mind is the

Great deceiver

 

It is capable

Of deceiving us to see

Things that are

Not really there

 

The world

The illusion

We have created

Our shared reality

 

But what about

Our true reality

Our true Self

 

Not who we appear to be

Not who the mind

Would have us think we are

 

But our Spirit

Our soul

Who we truly are

 

That which remains hidden

By the mind

The mind is like a veil

Behind which is the Spirit

 

The mind is the adversary

Of the Spirit

They war for our soul

 

Will we give our soul

To the adversary

To use as it pleases

 

Or will we give our soul

To the Spirit

To fulfill the will of God

 

Family Tree

If we trace our path backwards

We all end up in the same place

 

As we get closer to our origin

The paths start to merge

Until there is only one path

And only two who took that path

Out of the garden

 

Our family tree has many branches

The branches are the paths

 

Our family tree is like a map

And we find our way back home

By following the crumbs we left behind

 

The Bible is our family tree

 

The Spirit is all Encompassing

What picture do we paint with words

What does a word represent

What does a word stand for

 

Like universe is a word

But the picture is that

Of one which encompasses much

The earth is a word

Also that which encompasses much

But itself encompassed by the universe

 

Two words, two different things

But they do the same thing

They encompass other things

And depend on each other

But we get a different picture of each

 

Our body encompasses

That within it

Just like the earth does

Just like the universe

Though on a smaller scale

 

Everything represents

Something else on a smaller scale

Same pattern, they do the same thing

Though different word—different object

But they are in fact the same thing

 

Everything follows suit

What holds true for something

On a bigger scale

Is true also on a smaller scale

 

Our body encompasses the soul

Our Spirit encompasses the universe
