Creative writing

So many thoughts - and what thoughts are mine?
So many thoughts, and which of mine are really my own?
Which of my own thoughts are really true?
What are they mirroring?
Are they projecting, and to whom?
It can only be me.
Where is the peace in me then?

And only deep within my heart can I know truth
when my smiles come back to me,
when my heart is lifted up to God,
and the mind in me that thought is was thinking is still.

At first: exuberant, exultating JOY!
and then... stillness,
now filled with peace.
And with this peace blessings happen,
to all the same,
constantly the same to all,
all receive this constant peaceful blessing forever.
So few thoughts, and what thoughts!

Creative writing is something that started to happen for me again about a year ago. I have been writing all my life, and this time the Holy Spirit through study of the Course brought thoughts out in my mind that wanted to be put down and shared.

I believe that creative writing is a stage some people need to go through to grow closer to God. I certainly did and I am still moving along in that wonderful almost-not-space-time experience which consists of an instant which is repeated until the mind and the Holy Spirit's inspiration know the process is done.

Please feel free to contribute your own writing that you would like to share, it need not be poetry; it need not be 'pretty' or 'nice,' simply honest. Sometimes writing can happen after meditation - and sometimes it just rises up as a creative impulse.

I have posted a few of my bits of work below that I know has found an echo in others.

All things are an expression of love; it can be as giving, or receiving - it is all love.

I have one request: to ask all readers: to see this place as an expression of your love where both freedom and respect interfold; where any judgment is a matter of personal preferences, and to respect all material shown as a gift, like a wlidflower that catches one's eye and is best left where it is found.

PS Sometimes my writing has a kind of prophetic quality: I know and see the truth in love before it is fully lived.

How to post to this group:
There is a label called "Forum" at the top of the main page. Any material posted into the forum will appear as discusions within the group itself. So if you feel inclined to share any creative writing I hope it helps you to know about how to do this.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Christ in me awakes, that sweet Child of
simple innocence, asleep within my
beingness, tickling my heart with simple
sweet and honest questions; his blue eyes do
gaze at me with such love that all old things
vanish and are healed from what never was.

His simple purity of mind meets mine with
questing out all that is in me yet not mine -
and for me to let this old mind go
and see the light that comes instead... oh!
The wonder of creation's flow through life
before my inner eye is rising to
the lifting up the Son of Man in me
into the love of Father being God:

a promise of a Paradise' fulfilled
a promise to my mind - yet in his eyes
a glow, fulfilling his own destiny.

I don't think I have any writing ability, but I do enjoy reading the writings of others. Thulananda, you do have a very great God given gift in writing. Thank you for sharing it with us. Joseph your writing is so lovely what a wonderful talent you have. God gives to all His sons such Love in so many different ways. Love you all! Love and Blessings, Jeaneen

Do not hate yourself - because of your human mistakes – for if you do they will haunt you. Forgive your human mistakes and they will release you.

Joseph,
Hi, if I may try to communicate the intent of what you have posted? To me, as a dualistic being i walk this earth primarily in one state or another as an egocentric mind; yet through studying the Course (ACIM) my egocentric mind has learned that it is better to accept forgiveness of the self, and give forgiveness to the actions of others. I believe that when we forgive ourselves it is only and exercise of the egocentric mind; but when we accept forgiveness through our egocentric mind; then we have made a realization; that the forgiveness which came and removed the barriers to love came from a Source other than our egos.
Thus the experience of being forgiven is remembered and it is imprinted into the ego's mind as a correction tool for encounters with future temptations, errors, etc., and the moment dwells in consciousness for the duration of our expressing life as a human being on the earth. Lightdrops

Hi Joseph and David et al
Somehow the Holy Spirit gets me to find old films in the local library that I really need to see in order to see the Spirit at work. Recently I revisited "American Beauty", which revolved around the film of an empty plastic bag in the wind, dancing the dance of the carrying wind - and seeing the beauty in these very simple things. I have experienced similar occurrences in my own life too, and yet I needed to be reminded of the truth that the world is what I want to see in it.
My choices about hating myself for making mistakes is continually being eroded by the Holy Spirit for helping me to remember what I learned before - and by my acceptance of the Spirit's guidance it appears... that there is nothing to forgive. :-)

Love

Thulananda, I must admit that I do not always understand what your poems mean, but they are from your heart and soul, that is felt in every word. Thank you, for sharing .Love and Blessings, Jeaneen

Then The Rain Came
by - Joseph


When the sun shined

I felt all so fine.

I felt as if the world was mine.

When the sun shined

I felt I was on my feet

I felt a so complete.

When the sun shined.

Then the rain came

And it knocked me off my feet

It made me feel so incomplete,

When the rain came.

Hugs Joseph. I am reminded that appearances are deceiving. It feels darkest before the dawn. We are One in God's Love, That can never change. Do not be deceived. "It takes great learning to understand that all things, events, encounters and circumstances are helpful." (Manual, p.10) "Do not despair, then, because of limitations. It is your function to escape from them, but not to be without them. If you would be heard by those who suffer, you must speak their language. If you would be a saviour, you must understand what needs to be escaped. Salvation is not theoretical. Behold the problem, ask for the answer, and then accept it when it comes. Nor will its coming be long delayed. All the help you can accept will be provided, and not one need you have will not be met. Let us not, then, be too concerned with goals for which you are not ready. God takes you where you are and welcomes you. What more could you desire, when this is all you need?" (Manual, p.64)
I love you. Ruby

Waiting for my daughter to return home
what is she learning while she is out
life can be a harsh teacher
yet she can not become conscious without it's lessons
Is it my job to protect her or to let her go?
one keeps her safe, with the other she will mature
My spirit guide her on her path
time will tell how this story plays out!
