The Poet is a rare creature, they’re the conduit for lost Souls, forgotten Souls, and Souls that had unfinished business here on Earth.
“Poetry is the Reflection of a Long-Forgotten Spirit” by Ven Bunce.
Lots of people think poetry is just sitting down and placing stories-to-rhyme, and in some cases that could be so, but poetry is a great deal 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 People in particular, and desires to Warn us Advise us about our present and our future.
A Poet may not ‘like’ poetry or poets, and may not even like writing specifically. (though of course these days we also have digital audio and video to assist). So how can a Poet become a Poet?
To begin with, a poet will always have an enquiring mind, a mind that is always searching for the truth behind everything they hear and see. They more often than not have a very’positive’ disposition which generates the’energy’ that the lost Souls can identify with, or else they would search aimlessly for the ideal minds to utilize as their conduit. A Lucky Dip would not be a good outcome.
So how can these Souls enter the minds of a possible poet? It can be through coincidence, a broken dream, daydream, or simply sitting down Doodling with a pen/pencil and paper (The preferred way). Try it, sit and doodle, write whatever comes into your head. 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 likely write an excellent, entertaining, informative narrative, more frequently than not it will be put to rhyme, but it won’t be Poetry, it will 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’out of’ the Mind. The other is fed from experiences/memories/interactions. Both are valid forms of amusement and deliverance of messages, but just the Poet has the messages for our well-being now and for the future.
Poetry can obviously be misinterpreted 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 people who will twist the words written into meaning what’they wish’ them to mean. But Poetry, real poetry, written in rhyme, accesses our Soul directly by means of simple, even child-like verse that our’mind’ (the gate-keeper) let us through unhindered as it seems too innocent to be a danger. It’s then digested and becomes an active belief. Some might call it Enlightenment, or an Awakening, others would call it Love. The True Meaning Of LOVE of course, not the romantic version, or the most common”Love You” at the end of each mobile phone conversation.
Love is an energy, it generates all of the good things in life and it’must’ be enabled in every human Soul if our species is to flourish now, and in the future. Music, Art, Literature, Social interaction are all positive traits that maintain the’Love Energy’ flowing through our Minds, our Souls and the Ether. We do this by studying the perfect literature, listening to the ideal music, and socialising with our loved ones and friends on a regular basis. We also do this by meeting potential Love-Interests on a one time, face-to-face basis and not through the Social Media as is prevalent at the moment.
Social Media, while convenient, and very good at feeding the endorphins that your Brain and your Mind CRAVE over anything else is a totally Negative idea. It fills your Brain with calculated (often negative) messages that enter your thoughts, and possibly your Soul via the’endorphins’ that you/we Soooo want above all else (Sub-Consciously). All those’enjoys”hearts”shares’ etc, etc are ALL designed to FEED those Endorphins with as many negative messages as you can. They’re the’Feel-Good Cookies’ that we are fed to’take the medicine’. 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 exact same can be said for Dating Apps/Sites where we are ALL now publicly encouraged to go to locate our potential partner/spouse/lover, rather than meet strangers in nightclubs, pubs, cinema, theatre, sporting events, etc, etc.. Whether you want to believe it or not, it is an entirely Negative Experience. It uses those old Endorphins yet again to TRAP you into often very negative circumstances where the final result is usually only an exchange of Sex.
You find a profile picture’you like’, you read stuff that again’you like’, you make contact, they answer, again’You Like’… those endorphins are RUSHING throughout your brain now, the excitement is building and you can not WAIT to get to see the individual (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.
Now I know that there are exceptions to the rule and there have been many successful relationships built from online contact. It’s yet another negative experience which attacks your head, and potentially your Soul. You become cautious of everyone, you withdraw, you become anxious, even depressed because you believe you’re doing the proper 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 flip it to Your Advantage. Use Social Media knowing what it is, and how it’s controlling your every thought, feeling and action, then feed it with your Positivity. Don’t react to negative comments, statements, pictures and memes. Simply ignore them even though it is extremely tough, you must discipline yourself to refrain from accepting the cookie, the endorphin-rush of being involved in a debate that is only going one way – Down-hill.
The Poets can feed Social Media with their positive rhymes and because these can enter the minds and souls of other social networking users unhindered, those positive messages will be digested and live in the mind of the recipients and hopefully build up a resistance to the Negativity that abounds throughout Social Media as a whole. It’s not guaranteed, but it is a fantastic start.
To discover if you’re a Poet at heart and believe you’d like to make the’Love Energy’ to help humankind, then sit back by yourself in a quiet area where you’ll not be disturbed, with a pencil and some paper. After a moment or two, open your eyes and start doodling and writing everything that comes into your mind, no matter what that might be. When you think you’ve written down all that appeared in your mind, go back over it all and try to write it in rhyme. You’ll be surprised just how easy that will be.
If it appears too hard, don’t be worried about it. Set your thoughts/writings off safely and come back to it another day. Your subconscious mind is a powerful ally and will come to your aid when you do it again. Put aside half an hour every day at least for this exercise, but don’t try too hard or all you will 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, do not give up on your quest. In the event of a Poet not a Story-Teller (Writer) it is very important that you first clear your mind and allow only Positive Energy future access.
Good Luck, and persevere, it is a wonderful world which we Must Not Reduce to the’Dark forces’ of Social Media and the’New World Order’.
