Expressing My Mess – The Only Way Through, by Geoff

Expressing My Mess – The Only Way Through

My mind is a wasteland full of such mess
What can I do to relieve all this stress?
I could walk it off but it will just come back
What should I do? Express EXPRESS

I guess I can try that perhaps it will work
But when I do express sometimes I feel like a jerk
The words do come through without much sense
It does feel better however some emotions do lurk

I feel somewhat resistant to follow this advice
Sometimes my thoughts feel frozen on a big block of ice
Melting it all seems like such a big task
Then the words come quickly and don’t always feel nice

The intimidation sometimes is impossible to break
I feel like I am swimming in a huge endless lake
Why do the words not want to come out?
The peace is beneath them if this step I would take

IMG_1856Expression is the only way out
I get it I get it I say with a pout
I really want these thoughts taken from me
Releasing these thoughts is the only way out

So each day I come to lighten my load
Surrounded by Mighties in this wonderful abode
Each day is a new opportunity to share
Each day I awaken and share the thoughts I have sowed

To each of you here I wish to express
The love that I have and want to impress
That I do feel lighter each day I am here
Some days are not easy some days feel like less

IMG_1855The good news is waiting around the next bend
So I say to you all thanks for being a friend
This process does work and I feel good about that
Sometimes I just need to let it out and extend

The time spent here is incredibly deep
Sometimes I just want to lay down and weep and weep
But the time spent here always brings me back up
To a place that isn’t always so dark and so steep

So thank you all for listening to my mess
It always feels better and releases the stress
When amongst you all I can simply let go
It is the simplest thing I can do, just to simply express
the truth of God and our Spiritual reality.

 

Be Still, by Kirtana

 

LESSON 106.
Let me be still and listen to the truth.

If you will lay aside the ego’s voice, however loudly it may seem to call; if you will not accept its petty gifts that give you nothing that you really want; if you will listen with an open mind, that has not told you what salvation is; then you will hear the mighty Voice of truth, quiet in power, strong in stillness, and completely certain in Its messages.

Listen, and hear your Father speak to you through His appointed Voice, which silences the thunder of the meaningless, and shows the way to peace to those who cannot see. Be still today and listen to the truth. Be not deceived by voices of the dead, which tell you they have found the source of life and offer it to you for your belief. Attend them not, but listen to the truth.

Be not afraid today to circumvent the voices of the world. Walk lightly past their meaningless persuasion. Hear them not. Be still today and listen to the truth. Go past all things which do not speak of Him Who holds your happiness within His Hand, held out to you in welcome and in love. Hear only Him today, and do not wait to reach Him longer. Hear one Voice today.

Today the promise of God’s Word is kept. Hear and be silent. He would speak to you. He comes with miracles a thousand times as happy and as wonderful as those you ever dreamed or wished for in your dreams. His miracles are true. They will not fade when dreaming ends. They end the dream instead; and last forever, for they come from God to His dear Son, whose other name is you. Prepare yourself for miracles today. Today allow your Father’s ancient pledge to you and all your brothers to be kept.

Hear Him today, and listen to the Word which lifts the veil that lies upon the earth, and wakes all those who sleep and cannot see. God calls to them through you. He needs your voice to speak to them, for who could reach God’s Son except his Father, calling through your Self?  Hear Him today, and offer Him your voice to speak to all the multitude who wait to hear the Word that He will speak today.

Be ready for salvation. It is here, and will today be given unto you. And you will learn your function from the One Who chose it in your Father’s Name for you. Listen today, and you will hear a Voice which will resound throughout the world through you. The bringer of all miracles has need that you receive them first, and thus become the joyous giver of what you received.

Thus does salvation start and thus it ends; when everything is yours and everything is given away, it will remain with you forever. And the lesson has been learned. Today we practice giving, not the way you understand it now, but as it is. Each hour’s exercises should begin with this request for your enlightenment:

I will be still and listen to the truth.
What does it mean to give and to receive?

Ask and expect an answer. Your request is one whose answer has been waiting long to be received by you. It will begin the ministry for which you came, and which will free the world from thinking giving is a way to lose. And so the world becomes ready to understand and to receive.

Be still and listen to the truth today. For each five minutes spent in listening, a thousand minds are opened to the truth and they will hear the holy Word you hear. And when the hour is past, you will again release a thousand more who pause to ask that truth be given them, along with you.

Today the holy Word of God is kept through your receiving it to give away, so you can teach the world what giving means by listening and learning it of Him. Do not forget today to reinforce your choice to hear and to receive the Word by this reminder, given to yourself as often as is possible today:

Let me be still and listen to the truth.
I am the messenger of God today, My voice is His, to give what I receive.
