"How do I find what life's about
Unless I venture further out
Something in me is not content
Something affirms that I am meant
for more and so I have to try
and see if somehow I can fly
Going beyond the edge of things
I may find out that I have wings
Though they are of a different kind
than birds being mainly in the mind
Whatever now I seem to be
Yet more is to be found in me
SOMETIMES I can't see clear
The way to go from here
So then I pause and pray
Knowing God knows the way
I throw away the chart
My cautious mind designed
And following my heart I Trust
And flowing with the flow
I go by letting go
Believing that God's will
Will bring me to the still
Where I become the ME
God means for me to be"
- James Dillet Freeman, Poet Laureate
Poem "Following My Heart"
But if we have somebody that has been through SIMILAR bad EXPERIENCES then the likelihood is that they will be a great benefit because we are anxious to know how they were able to overcome the PAIN that we think is 'killing us' and move forward. We desperately NEED that SUPPORT to help us through, to help us LEARN how to LET GO. Now.........
When I was in Devil's Dip I needed help from people like James. I found them in the books. They helped me understand what I was going through.
"Whatever now I seem to be, Yet more is to be found in me"
"And flowing with the flow, I go by letting go"
"Believing that God's will, will bring me to the still,
Where I become the MEGod means me to Be"
Words like that are very powerful. Read them to understand your pain. They help you see others' experiences guide you through your own. They help you overcome the loneliness of feeling you are the only one that can feel that bad. But you will only FIND if you SEEK. So look for your ME, your Upper Case ME. Ask Someone Out-There for help..... in your MIND. It's there inside everyone of us. Doctors won't be able to help you find it because it's not inside your body. Your Upper Case ME is in your MIND within your Universal Consciousness. If you SEARCH your inner ME, your MIND will provide you with the THOUGHTS you NEED to overcome any adversity, any negativity. The next part in your recovery is sooo simple. All that you then need to do is CHOOSE what you want to become, where you want to go. CHOOSE whether life is up to one hundred years, or an eternity. CHOOSE wisely what you NEED to BELIEVE. Then it will happen for you. If today becomes the beginning of the rest of your life, if your brilliant future becomes the EXPERIENCE to SHARE to help others, if you find your Upper Case ME, then it will not matter what has happened in your past because your ME will give you an eternity of lives just like this life you are living. There is a reason that we live this 'one little time' in our 'lives'. Nobody knows that reason ....... YET. But some food for thought. Science tells us that there are somewhere between 100 and 200 Billion (with a B) stars within our galaxy, The Milky Way. Science also tells us that there are upwards of 100 Billion (with a B) Galaxies. So they say that there are around 1,000 stars to every grain of sand on Earth! Our Sun is a star. You could fit over one Million Earth's in the Sun (although if we were one of them we would need heaps of SPF 15+!)........
Hmmm.... those figures are quite incomprehensible and yet.... weeeell they are there! So how did they all get there? Why did one tiny little planet end up with 7 billion human beings? Or is there more to the STORY of WEEE? I think so. But something pretty powerful created all of this stuff. Some call HIM GOD, others Krishna, Allah, Buddha and.... well you know. But my opinion for what it is worth is that because we have been given this one life that we know of, it is up to us to live it as best we can. If we make mistakes along the way that cause suffering then we MUST LEARN and use our EXPERIENCES to help others. I'm pretty sure that if we search for and find Upper Case ME, then we will be on the 'GOOD' side of going somewhere. But first we gotta BELIEVE, huh?
