why does “one” make a difference?
by jennifer kiley

speaking not of self
but of soul
a thing with power
and around us
so many influenced
by its presence
as though a deity
a spirit contained within
is a bounty of plenty
love and nurturing
offerings are mystical
no denying its power
felt strongly when present
when appears
to have vanished
in presence
in absence
still within
loving and nurturing
renewal needed
when demands are great
being able to give
to the giver
is divine in nature
within there is a need
to be heard

tension released
building up
what is served daily
into the world
touches of the spirit
is feeling of a lightness
but other energies
out of the darkness
lasts a long moment
in time
the dam has limited give
release is then necessary
something needs
to absorb the after shock
that works for a time
but total release
is what is needed
space needed
for total renewal
letting go is not easy
from either side
of dynamic
separation occurs
going away
to come back again
it is difficult
but more powerful
for all who make it
through the transitory period
it’s a cleansing
it is painful
for pain must be released
it is a sweat lodge
the spirits need their freedom
flowing freely into
the outer realm
feelings and thoughts
must be set free
processed into
sanity from insanity
every moment creates
something new to explore
like tripping on acid
or mind expanding
from mushrooms
shall be found

john lennon by stephen anderson

if all can be released
letting go of the chaos
in one’s mind
in one’s emotional field
frees the spirit
from being grounded
by the earth forces
of gravity
holding the spirit hostage
when it needs freedom
to explore the expanses
of the infinite ethereal world
allowances need
in no prison
can a spirit
be contained
like a shadow
it follows you
where you go
but you can never
hold on to it
or touch it
but it is a part of you
it just does not
belong to you
there is no ownership
the spirit is always free
travels where it choses
no one can hold it
neither death nor life
nor need or friendship
it needs to be what it is
but most of all
it belongs to
no one
it cannot be owned
the devil
cannot trade for it
no deals can be made with it
it is beyond all of us
let it be what it is
an uncontrollable
energy force
beyond our imagination
to perceive or describe
words do not exist
in any language
to give it names
or substance
it just is

  1. “I consider myself a stained-glass window. And this is how I live my life. Closing no doors and covering no windows; I am the multi-coloured glass with light filtering through me, in many different shades. Allowing light to shed and fall into many many hues. My job is not to direct anything, but only to filter into many colours. My answer is destiny and my guide is joy. And there you have me.” ~ C. JoyBell C. ~
