The Poet is a rare animal, 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 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 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 adventure here on earth, for Humans particularly, and desires to Warn us Advise us about our present and our future.
A Poet may not even’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 start 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’power’ 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 fantastic outcome.
So how do 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).
If you sit down and think’too hard’ about your message into the world you will likely write an excellent, entertaining, informative narrative, more frequently than not it will be put to rhyme, but it will not 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 Poet is fed from space/time/ether. The other 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 now and for the future.
Poetry can of course 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 our’mind’ (the gate-keeper) let’s through unhindered as it seems too innocent to be a danger. It is 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 naturally, 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 life if our species is to flourish now, and in the future. Music, Art, Literature, Social interaction are all positive traits that keep the’Love Energy’ flowing through our Minds, our Souls and the Ether. We do this by studying the right literature, listening to the ideal music, and socialising with our family and friends on a regular basis. We also do so 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 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 Mind, and possibly your Soul through 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 are the’Feel-Good Cookies’ that we are fed to’take the medication’. 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 possible partner/spouse/lover, rather than meet strangers in clubs, 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 quite negative situations where the final result is usually just an exchange of Gender.
You find 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 now, the excitement is building and you can’t WAIT to get to see the person (in person) but all too often it’s a complete let-down as their profile was all a load of tosh, written to persuade potential’victims’ to make contact and be manipulated one way or another.
However, the facts ARE that more often-than-not these meetings leave a nasty taste in the mouth. It’s yet another negative experience which strikes your mind, and potentially your Soul. You become cautious of everyone, you withdraw, you become anxious, even sad because you believe you’re doing the proper thing, but it all ends in tears. Social Media was designed as the BIGGEST Rat Trap on Earth and we ALL took the bait – The’Feel-Good Cookie’.
Spit it OUT right now, and flip it to Your Advantage. Don’t respond to negative remarks, statements, pictures and memes. Simply ignore them even though it’s extremely tough, you have to discipline yourself to refrain from taking the cookie, the endorphin-rush of getting 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 spirits of other social networking users unhindered, these positive messages will be digested and live in the psyche 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 is a fantastic start.
To discover if you’re a Poet at heart and believe you want to generate the’Love Energy’ to help humankind, then sit down on your own 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 head, no matter what that might be. When you feel you’ve written down all that appeared on your mind, go back over it all and try to write it in rhyme. You will be surprised just how easy that will be.
If it seems too hard, don’t worry about it. Set your thoughts/writings off safely and come back to it another day. Your subconscious mind is a strong ally and will come to your aid if you do it again. Put aside half an hour every day at least for this exercise, but do not try too hard or all you will get will be stories and not Poetry.
If after a couple of days things aren’t working for you, then sorry to saybut you are probably not in a positive enough frame of mind (Too much Social Media again I guess ) Whatever 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 very important that you first clear your mind and let only Positive Energy future access.
Good Luck, and persevere, it’s a wonderful world which we Must Not Reduce to the’Dark forces’ of Social Media and the’New World Order’.
