The Poet is a rare creature, they are the conduit for lost Souls, abandoned Souls, and Souls that had unfinished business here on Earth.
“Poetry is the Reflection of a Long-Forgotten Soul” by Ven Bunce.
Many individuals think poetry is just sitting down and putting stories-to-rhyme, and in some cases that may be so, but poetry is much more than that. Poetry is the out-pouring of a Spirit which has passed over to the’other side’, has seen the truth, the hidden truths about this experience here on earth, for Humans in particular, and desires to Warn us Advise us about our present and our future.
A Poet may not ‘like’ poetry or poets, and might not even like writing specifically. (though of course these days we also have digital sound and video to help ). Just how can a Poet become a Poet?
To begin with, a poet will have an enquiring mind, a mind that is always searching for the truth behind everything they see and hear. They more often than not have a very’positive’ disposition that generates the’power’ that the lost Souls can identify with, or else they would search aimlessly for the ideal minds to use as their conduit. A Lucky Dip wouldn’t be a fantastic outcome.
So how can these Souls enter the minds of a possible poet? It can be through coincidence, a broken dream, daydream, or just sitting down Doodling with a pen/pencil and newspaper (The preferred way). Don’t’think’ about what to write or draw,”just do it” as a very successful entrepreneur once said.
If you sit down and think’too hard’ about your message to the world you will probably write a good, entertaining, informative narrative, more frequently than not it will be put to rhyme, but it will not be Poetry, it’ll be a Story. It can nevertheless be called poetry of course, but this is the gap between Poetry and Story-Telling. One comes’through’ the Soul, another comes’from’ the Mind. The Poet is fed from space/time/ether. Another is fed from experiences/memories/interactions. Both are valid forms of entertainment and deliverance of messages, but just the Poet has the messages for our well-being today and for the future.
Poetry can obviously be misinterpreted just as every other writing that has ever occurred, and the best example of this is’The Holy Bible’ probably the most abused book ever written. Charlatons, Do-Gooders, Narcissists, Spiritual Leaders/Workers are just’some’ of the men and women who will twist the words written into meaning what’they wish’ them to mean. However, Poetry, real poetry, written in rhyme, accesses our Soul directly with the use of straightforward, even child-like verse that our’mind’ (the gate-keeper) let us through unhindered as it appears too innocent to be a threat. It is then digested and becomes an active belief. Some would call it Enlightenment, or an Awakening, others would call it Love. The True Meaning Of LOVE naturally, not the romantic version, or the most common”Love You” at the end of each mobile phone conversation.
Love is an energy, it creates all the good things in life and it’must’ be enabled in every human life if our species is to thrive today, and in the future. Music, Art, Literature, Social interaction are positive traits that maintain the’Love Energy’ flowing through our Minds, our Souls and the Ether. We do this by reading the perfect literature, listening to the right music, and socialising with our family and friends on a regular basis. We also do this by meeting prospective Love-Interests on a one-to-one, face-to-face basis rather than through the Social Media as is prevalent right now.
Social Media, while convenient, and very good at feeding the endorphins your Brain and your Mind CRAVE more than anything else is a totally Negative idea. It fills your Brain with calculated (often negative) messages that enter your Mind, and possibly your Soul via the’endorphins’ that you/we Soooo want above all else (Sub-Consciously). All those’enjoys”hearts”stocks’ etc, etc are ALL designed to FEED those Endorphins with as many unwanted messages as you can. They’re the’Feel-Good Cookies’ that we are fed to’take the medication’. Remember at school, inoculations were often given with a sugar-cube? The same principle applies here, and Social Media should be treated with Sincere Scepticism.
The same can be said for Dating Apps/Sites where we are ALL now openly encouraged to go to locate our potential partner/spouse/lover, rather than meet strangers in clubs, pubs, cinema, theater, sporting events, etc, etc.. Whether you would like to believe it or not, it’s a totally Negative Experience. It uses those old Endorphins yet again to TRAP you into often quite negative situations where the end result is usually only an exchange of Sex.
You see a profile picture’you like’, you read things that ‘you like’, you make contact, they reply, again’You Enjoy’… those endorphins are RUSHING through your brain today, the excitement is building and you can’t WAIT to get to see the person (in person) but all too often it is a comprehensive let-down as their profile has been all a load of tosh, written to persuade potential’victims’ to make contact and be manipulated one way or another.
It’s still another negative experience which strikes your mind, and potentially your Soul. You become wary of everyone, you withdraw, you become anxious, even sad because you believe you’re doing the right thing, but it all ends in tears. Sometimes it gets so bad that Suicide seems the only way OUT of the’Rat-Trap’. Social Media was created as the BIGGEST Rat Trap on Earth and All of Us took the bait – The’Feel-Good Cookie’.
Spit it OUT at this time, and turn it to Your Advantage. Don’t react to negative comments, statements, pictures and memes. Simply ignore them even though it’s extremely tough, you must discipline yourself to refrain from accepting the cookie, the endorphin-rush of getting involved in a debate that is only going one way – Down-hill.
OK you say, what’s this got to do with Poetry and Poets? …
The Poets can nourish Social Media with their positive rhymes and since these can enter the minds and spirits of other social media users unhindered, those positive messages will be digested and reside in the mind of the recipients and hopefully develop a resistance to the Negativity that abounds throughout Social Media as a whole. It’s not guaranteed, but it’s a good start.
To discover if you’re a Poet in your mind and believe you want to generate the’Love Energy’ to assist humankind, then sit back on your own in a quiet area where you’ll not be disturbed, with a pencil and some paper. Close your eyes and just start repeating the word ‘relax’ in your minds eye. After a moment or two, open your eyes and start doodling and writing everything that comes into your mind, regardless of what that might be. When you think you’ve written down all that appeared on your head, go back over it all and try to write it . You will be amazed just how easy that will be.
If it seems too hard, do not worry about it. Set your thoughts/writings away safely and come back to it another day. Your subconscious mind is a powerful ally and will come to your aid if you do it again. Put aside half an hour a day at least for this exercise, but do not try too hard or all you’ll get will be stories and not Poetry.
If after a couple of days things are not working for you, then sorry to saybut you’re probably not in a positive enough frame of mind (Too much Social Media again I suspect) Anything else you do, don’t give up on your search. Everybody has the potential to be a Musician, Artist, Writer or a Poet. In the case of a Poet not a Story-Teller (Writer) it is imperative that you first clear your mind and let only Positive Energy potential accessibility.
Good Luck, and persevere, it is a superb world which we Must Not Lose to the’Dark forces’ of social networking and the’New World Order’
