Reach Within  

We need to reach, reach ...
farther than we ever dared!

Reach, to places never explored
but places feared

Not to planets in a far off place,
but deep within that secret space

Deep within our depths we go,
where few dare venture, and explore

Deep within the endless well
to reach where hollow echoes dwell

Deep and deeper still,
until we awake to see ...

The true reward
No more struggle or pain

Until we hit the nerve, the vein
and wake at last to find again ...

Ourselves in higher planes
Enlightened ... and truly free

Author Notes

Too many of us spend our time grasping for the wrong things in life, things outside ourselves that help us to live in the world, but ultimately that don't matter. Thus there are so many in the western world who may have so much but who are basically empty inside and lost, with no true substance.

This is a mantra that came to me to help dispel our search of nothingness and instead find a meaningful fullness, within

A poem from your soul
I devoured this poem. I ravished it and still it has meaning, too me.
Look inwards before looking outwards, is the vibe I get.

Thank you so much Bevan. Your words make me very happy because the it had such an affect on you and it is also one of my favorites. It wrote itself basically, I was the vehicle, driven by some unseen force inside and all around me. I feel it carries an important message all should hear.

I think
fullness is always found by reaching....and seldom by gaining. It is the ironic ingredient that makes a life worthwhile.

I'll be reading more. :-)

hmm, I am sure there is some truth to that Synchro, perhaps a lot .... it's a good thought to ponder as we relate it to our own lives and experiences. Depends how we got to that fullness, was it easily attained or handed to us through good luck or forture, or was it something ultimately arrived at after much striving or reaching. As well as, what did we learn along the way of that striving? Did we learn compassion for others? As humans we tend to take things for granted when they are given to us freely. Those, where things have always came easy to them, tend not to value the important things as much as those who have struggled.

You are correct, of course. Compassion is the key...and I see it more and more.
