An inspirational conversation with an Inner Spirit

                                                                     
                                                                One day I awoke at four o’clock in the morning knowing that I had to 
                                                                have a talk with my inner spirit.  At daybreak, I sat in the quiet corner 
                                                                of my rose garden I call my Happy Buddha Corner.  I closed my eyes 
                                                                and engaged in a self-centered conversation with my...

 

 

            
             
“Messenger of God"

 

                 Well, Inner Spirit, I know you exist, and I need to talk with you, okay? 
                
Are you there?  Are you there, Inner Spirit?

 

                 I am here.

 

                 Oh, great!  Look, you know my name, but what do I call you?

                 Call me simply, I Am.

                
Where do you come from, I Am?

 

                  I come from God.
          
                 
Well, why is it you’re here within me?

                  I am the imprint of your life.  I am here to help you in the School of Life.

                 
The “School of Life”?  What’s that?

                 Life is a training ground for your future work in the House of God.

 

                 How does that work, I Am?   I mean, how do you help me?

 

                 As now.  You ask and you listen.

 

                 Well, what is it I’m supposed to learn in life, I Am?

 

                 You will learn that you are a Creation of God.  Even if you don't believe 
                 in God, you will learn that God believes in you.

         

                 You will learn that everything in your life has a purpose.
          
                 You will learn that Love is the one great lesson of life; that in Love, there 
                  is Compassion, Kindness, Understanding and Patience.

         
                 
How is it then, I Am, that some humankind creations of God become 
                  mean-spirited, cruel and wicked?

 

                  The life God gave you is a life filled with issues and choices, among which 
                  are the Temptations of Evil.  In the School of Life, you will learn how you 
                  can choose to be Selfish, Mean, Cruel, Wanton and Wicked.  You will learn 
                  of the deadly sins of Pride, Envy and Wrath. 

 

                  These are the choices of a Fallen Spirit.  You will learn that a Fallen Spirit will 
                  never know the glory of the House of God.

                  You will also learn you can choose the holy virtues of Faith, Hope and Charity.  

                  In your life, you will learn this:  What you focus upon becomes reality.  God 
                  has given you the power to choose.

 

                  Well, I Am, this School of Life is very complicated and difficultBefore you 
                  leave,  I have one request—  Will you share with me a simple rule on how to  
                  live a successful life?

 

                  Verily, I share with you this one great secret of a Risen Spirit— 

                   
                                  When you live with God in your Heart,

                                  your future is to live in the Heart of God.
             

                  Thank you, I Am.  I feel much better having had this little talk with you.

 

                  So mote it be.

 

                                                
                                                                 
---ooOoo—

Reviewed by Richard Arrington
If you focus on negativity's, then you become a negative person. We had a church study group on " The purpose driven life," I came to conclude that I had to change my view of life, before I could change my life. Thank you for " Messenger of God."
Reviewed by Jerry Engler
I know, nearly with a certainty, Richard, that, "What you focus on becomes reality," is a central theme to your life. It also is illustrated in your pendulum of life thoughts. You strike upon the very core of it here because, yes, just as you say there is meaning and direction to your life, and each one of the rest of us. God does know this even when we reject it or are seemingly unconcious of it because it is part of the free choice rule to help us understand what it's all about. The concept of sin is true, but we stop short of a true understanding of it when we limit it to concepts of condemnation, and fail to realize that it is about good spiritual and mental health as well as growth, themes you so wisely touch on here. I like the truth you voice that whoever lives with the heart of God in them also lives in the heart of God. We see these teachings often through things like the power of positive thinking, the best of sermons, etc., but I hope you always persist in putting them forward again and again. It's too easy for people to fail to focus, and instead follow a broad and easy path that ultimately deceives. You strike me on an evening when I have been diverted, and remind me that I, too, must focus on what is truly important. So tragic is the person who focuses on atheism or agnosticism, and never moves ahead. Bless you for accepting the mission of putting it forward.........Jerry
Reviewed by H. Lena Jones
Richard, I certainly can endorse the concept that God has given us a conscience to guide us in life.

Sincerely,
Lena

Reviewed by Jeanette Cooper
Richard, you had to do some soul searching to compose this thoughtful poem and it is interestingly innovative the way you recite in two voices: yours and God's. You do an excellent job as well. Good job, Richard.
Reviewed by Nicole Weaver
Richard,
I really like the part:
"In your life, you will learn this: What you focus upon becomes reality." This is so very true, if you focus on negatives you manifest that. Great write1

And we are the children of a King...a glorious particle of heaven here on earth
Coloring the spheres of beatitudes’ celestial offerings through all the prismatic gifts of his light
Empowering us with his shields from all evil to walk in goodness...keeping our hearts pure...

Thank You Richard for this beauteous gift of inspiration...
