Here’s a little poem I wrote about the power of prayer and peace.
All support and feedback is appreciated! One love.
PRAY FOR PEACE
Please pray for peace and pray for serenity.
Pray for the strength to keep your soul heavenly.
Pray to be the person who can truly love an enemy.
Pray to be a real friend, Right until the very end.
Pray past petitioning for private concerns,
Stop praying for petty passions as you watch the world burn.
We are here for a reason, every one of us, to learn.
In the great web of life, we’re all meant to take a turn.
A turn at talking, a turn at walking, a turn at laughing, a turn at crying.
A turn at birth, and as if we’re cursed, we must also all take a turn at dying.
So breathe the blessings, learn the lessons, life is too short to spend it sighing.
Become at one with the cause of all, the effect will be there’s no need for trying.
We already are the oneness behind the veil.
For that reason, anyone who knows the truth can’t fail.
Never be afraid, you know you were made to set sail
On this grand voyage, past the mirage of treacherous trail.
Don’t pray for the pressure to cease, because you need it.
Don’t pray that the problems of life will be deleted.
Just live life right, pray to be never be defeated
By temptation, an abomination, growing if you feed it.
All energy is ever-flowing, it’s the power of connection.
Pray for power to discern the different levels of perception.
In this world every fact is simultaneously deception.
Obstacles must be faced by us all, with no exceptions.
We must face the reality of living in duality.
Pray for understanding to tolerate humanity.
Shine a bright light in the middle of normality.
People pushing people down, sinning for a salary.
Please pray for courage, pray for pure self-control.
Pray the devilish forces never get a hold.
Pray for prosperity of body, spirit, soul.
Pray the world can keep the love alive instead of growing cold.
Too many people pray for supernatural abilities.
We seldom are concerned with true spiritual stability.
Approach the Great Spirit with a heart full of humility.
And see the world change before your eyes, tranquility, and peace arise.
To provide the mental and emotional endurance to survive.
And not only to survive, but to prosper, to thrive.
Too many people live a lie, never really live alive.
Insecurities to hide, cut inside of them like sharp knives.
If you seek you shall find, so seek what you really need.
Be a philosopher, a lover of wisdom and not of greed.
The law of cause and effect is in effect indeed.
But don’t let that be the only reason why you do a good deed.
Seek what you sincerely seek, as secondary desires then begin to fall away.
Greed, hate, pride, lust, you must throw them all away!
Pray for peace, pray for wisdom, God is just a call away,
Close your eyes, visualize, on an inner holiday
To galaxies so close to heart, you have known it from the start.
Life is deep as any ocean. And the universe is art.
There’s no need for the commotion. All is motion like the beating heart.
Constant motion, feeling, emotion, virtue, passion, love, thought.
Everything is everything, it’s all interconnected.
Bow before the beauty of divine destiny, respect it.
Learn to see the good in all, really be selective.
Pain can never perish until peace is elected.
Life will tear itself apart a million times again.
Take comfort in the knowledge we will never really die, my friend.
Life will destroy and rebuild itself but it’ll never end.
Pray with gratitude for such a teaching. Om, Amen.
Stand victorious above the bodies of your past desires,
Devilish desires would have lead you towards the fire.
The fire that consumes within, the flames of hell, a dirty conscience.
A life wasted on nonsense, the lectures of a liar.
Yet you rise above the challenges; the malice is disowned.
Victorious and vulnerable you stand at God’s throne.
Desires now subdued to the point that one would think them dead,
Clear your head, death is dead. Life is good. You are home.
Home, where you need to be; home, where you belong.
Lend a helping hand, take a stand, learn to get along.
Exercise your inner strength to do no wrong.
Let the beauty of life move your spirit like a soothing song.
