Spirituality is the explanation to that which science cannot explain.
It requires a willingness to admit that things in this world go beyond our understanding, and thus, can be tricky to understand.
Many of those who have taken the path towards spirituality and reaped the benefits of such, however, have translated their experiences into words of poetry.
No matter where you are on your spiritual journey, these poems are a great source of strength and support.
A Zen of Life by Dalai Lama
Believe in yourself.
Consider things from every angle.
Don’t give up and don’t give in.
Everything you’re looking for lies behind the mask you wear.
Family and friends are hidden treasures, seek them and enjoy their riches.
Give more than you planned to.
Hang onto your dreams.
If opportunity doesn’t knock, build a door.
Judge your success by what you had to give up in order to get it.
Keep trying no matter how hard it seems.
Make it happen.
Never lie, steal or cheat.
Open your arms to change, but don’t let go of your values.
Practice makes perfect.
Quality not quantity in anything you do.
Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer.
Take control of your own destiny.
Understand yourself in order to better understand others.
When you lose, don’t lose the lesson.
Xcellence in all your efforts.
You are unique, nothing can replace you.
Zero in on your target, and go for it.
Fully Alive by Dawna Markova
I will not die an unlived life.
I will not live in fear
of falling or catching fire.
I choose to inhabit my days,
to allow my living to open me,
to make me less afraid,
to loosen my heart
until it becomes a wing,
a torch, a promise.
I choose to risk my significance;
to live so that which came to me as seed
goes to the next as blossom
and that which came to me as blossom,
goes on as fruit.
Decide To Dream by Robert Muller
Decide to widely open the gates
Of your wonderful Mind, Heart and Soul
Let flow in the dreams of God
Of the Angels, Saints, Prophets and Sages
Give birth and let out into the world the dreams
Of your own unique, unrepeatable Cosmic Being.
If not born for any other purpose.
Be born to dream, be born to love
Be born to fashion a better world
Dreams and dreamers never die
From Heaven you will see your dreams come true
You will reincarnate, inspire and energize new dreamers
The dreams of our beautiful Planet of Dreams will never die
Until we become the paradise we were always meant to be
And are about to joyfully become
Depths of Infinity Within Us by Shilow
the depth of infinity
of ancient wisdom
and cosmic mystery
coursing through our veins
while the centers of atoms explode
in and out of time
where are we when we fall between breaths
when we slip through the cracks
like oozing molasses
the yearning of our hearts
that will never give up
we are always held up
by those dramatic atoms
diving deep though intelligence
that rotates stars
and beats our hearts
to pop back in time
back into our dimension
as a new dimension
of who we are
Because I Could Not Stop For Death by Emily Dickinson
Because I could not stop for Death,
He kindly stopped for me;
The carriage held but just ourselves
We slowly drove, he knew no haste,
And I had put away
My labour, and my leisure too,
For his civility.
We passed the school where children played,
Their lessons scarcely done;
We passed the fields of gazing grain,
We passed the setting sun.
We paused before a house that seemed
A swelling of the ground;
The roof was scarcely visible,
The cornice but a mound.
Since then ’tis centuries; but each
Feels shorter than the day
I first surmised the horses’ heads
Were toward eternity
