When I Go

This world is created around social constructs
Education and government systems are examples

People are individuals
That make up a collective

When our bodies die
Our spirits do not

I will speak to you again
You must learn the language

I will speak through the trees
Like my mother does for me

I will speak through the water
Like my grandfather does for me

I will speak through your third eye
Like my grandmother does for me

I could never possibly leave you
We are eternally intertwined

We have always been together
Since the beginning of time

Since when we first conversed
Long before your conception date

You whispered you’d arrive
Then suddenly you arrived

My human-self in disbelief
My soul-self eternally knowing

We will be together
Until the end of time

Time itself is a man-made construct
There is really no such thing, after all

Just a simple, useful tool
To help you out while here

Yesterday, today and tomorrow
Are closer together than you think

They are all now
There is only now

When you learn in school
Derive skills from that learning

Do not worry about memorizing facts
You must learn to learn the way you learn

Learning to learn the way you learn
Will set you apart from other scholars

I did not know this
I wish I had known

So I will tell you
So that you know

Imagine a bright red apple
The juiciest, most ripe apple

That apple will look different
To each reader that reads that

That space in which you saw apple
Is the space where you can find me

Forever nestled in your mind
Smiling, crying, feeling with you

Never alone in this lifetime
Despite sometimes feeling alone

They whisper and communicate
Constant, daily attempts with us

We ignore
Senses shut

It is okay
We are open

Opening ourselves back up
Due to increased technology

There is a misconception
That we must pioneer again

We can utilize these vast inventions
Simultaneously living in harmony with nature

One or the other lifestyle
We do not have to choose

We must not rely totally
On our beloved technology

The pandemic teaches this
We must rely on community

Let us look deep within
At our compromised selves

Why are we fighting
Why so much hate

Why so many divisions
Why all this global strife

We all wait for a war
While in the middle of one

Blinders on, unaccepting of the truth
We fight for our lives and futures

Do the right thing
Be kind to others

That is the root of it all
People can be very rude

Trust me
Trust me

It takes a skill to ignore the energy
Of the other that attempts to penetrate

Fearful, dismissive, terrifying energy
They do not know how to fix themselves

So, they latch onto you and give you some
Hoping that you will meet them down below

Keep your shield and sword tight
Keep fighting towards justice of good

It comes down to our lives as individuals
Who we affect and who affects us all

No victimhood
Only experience

We come here to learn lessons
We forget as we become deluded

Deluded in thinking external goods are valuable
Rather it is who we are inside that is impactful

The Ten Commandments are an example
Of some basic, seemingly natural rules

Don’t be a fucking asshole
Work and help the other out

That is what it comes down to
Parables will illustrate examples

Parables understood people are ugly inside
So they tell you how to deal with those types

Religion was misused but is valuable
You can learn a great deal about life

Torah, Bible, Quran, all of the books
Buddha, Jesus, Moses, Muhammed


I will never leave you
Despite your feeling alone

I will speak to you in your mind
Once you learn my new tongue

From where you and I came
Is where you and I will go

There is no beginning
Nor is there ending

There only is now
Please remember

When you look into your eyes in the mirror
You will see my eyes looking back at you

The same smile or the laugh will catch you
Reminding you of me, you may lose breath

Take that breath back in deeply
Remember that I will never leave

Those subtle reminders of love
My gifts to you from the other side

Until we meet again
I love you more than life
