(A poem by Brendan Lauritz, aka 'Trigger')
An angel delivered this body, into a soul I suppose
And so began this journey called life
Or so the story goes
And in this life we suffer tragedies and hardships unbeknown
But why? For what purpose? Why can’t I understand?
This gift of life has conditions attached
With a beginning and an end, and in between
Well I just don’t know.
There are seconds and minutes and hours and days
But they’re only things we made up
Seriously, what are they?
There’s the heartbeats and breaths helping us be
It is a gift, undefined, not our purpose to see
Our gift is a package
Made up of grief pain and sorrow
But there’s the good stuff as well
Bring them back into your life, into your tomorrow
The losses we suffer, inflicting the pain
Are a part of our journey but,
Building the strength to continue, can be our greatest gain
So listen, a voice within, let it guide you from here
Your Happy-Me is closer although it may not seem so clear
There cannot be an answer to the reason for the pain
Simply understand that the pain defines the purpose
What that is we can’t explain
But one thing is for certain
Far beyond the end it goes
So accept this gift and the message within
Take time to smell a rose

This is the point that is life changing. I know the stories of devastation. I have lived them and lived with other's stories. But THIS......
THIS is the point when I have heard the amazing stories of the turnaround. The change from the nadir of despair to the epitome of self-belief. The grief in Devil's Dip to the flight on the wings of an Angel. It is the salvation of the soul. The awareness of the Mind guiding us. The One Mind, the very being of consciousness. It is THE breakthrough.
Some tell stories of the voices, some the wind chimes, some the music, the light, some the visions. I have heard soooo many recovering addicts tell their stories of when they received The Holy Spirit. And IT is all of these things. The IT is the time where people cannot explain their reasons. Simply it was THE TIME. The time that they...
