The Moment of Temptation

As I go now about this task
I do condemn myself to death
In blinding rage on put the mask,
And I believe that it’s this breath –

This is my life, this body’s me,
I’m mortal shell about to die!
Still praying of not letting be
True nature, purpose, love of mine.

And I am raising against God,
Thinking my will can conquer His,
For eons I this battle fought
I laugh at very thought of peace!

It’s such a shame I am so lost,
Yet there is always choice to make:
This pain accepting as my cost,
Or to wake up from my mistake.

The Moment of Temptation

As I go now about this task
I do condemn myself to death
I’m not my Self, on put the mask,
And I believe that it’s this breath,

That is my life, this body’s me,
I’m mortal, empty shell about to die,
I have this thought of not allowing be,
My nature, purpose, love of mine.

And I am raising against God,
Thinking my will can conquer His,
My true self I remember not,
I have forgotten laughing at mistakes, it is

A shame I am so lost
This very moment choice I make:
This pain accepting as the cost,
Putting my true life at the stake.

Sonnets of Love: The Choice

My Brother, do not choose against your Self
The choice of body does condemn you.
You cannot have both flesh and spirit.
The time has come, the choice you’ll make yourself,
And only then can heaven start anew,
And life of love will now resume in it.

The Choice

The choice you make – to love or hate,
Your choice – forgiving brother,
Or still condemning him, choosing his fate,
The choice – living apart from one another,
Or being one with God – in God,
Being pure, unchanged and awed.

You choose your fate each second of each day,
And often being blind of ones you’ve made,
You choose to hate, unconscious how it may
Cause all the love inside of you to fade.
Each moment and each day you choose
To win against your ego – or to lose.

The choice – how beautiful it is,
That we are blessed to have a choice,
Our fate is in our hands, and so is peace,
As we decide to hear ego’s, or God’s voice –
We choose to suffer, judge and hate,
Or peaceful Love – which is our final fate.

The Light

You see yourself as sinful, guilty and fearful. By this “seeing” you are creating yourself as such. Is it your will to be called these names, that you yourself came up with? Do you want suffering or peace?

How do you change this view of yourself? How do you start seeing yourself in true light? You cannot accomplish this through affirmations or intellectual reasoning. The only way you can see yourself as Light is to see all your Brothers as Light. Every tiny bit of darkness you find in another will be multiplied and reflected in you.

When you condemn your Brother into darkness, do you suppose that Light will be shown to you? Do you believe that Light is something a separated body can ever have?

The Light is all there is. It includes everything, as it is everything. It loves everyone, because everyone is standing in the Light. Realize that there is no darkness by not looking for darkness.

Misplaced Faith

How can it be you’re so alone?
How can the memory of Love
Appear to be gone?

How can we see what’s true?
How can we truly know,
And in our faith – how can we follow through?

You’re searching something you can never find,
For you’ve misplaced your search,
Not ever looking in your mind.

Your faith lies in the darkness, not in light,
Illusions obscuring it
Through anger, judgement, hate and fight.

You’re trusting master who keeps you in this hell,
For you’ve misplaced your faith –
Your chosen teacher never meant you well.

The choice

A miracle is our natural inheritance. It is our remembering. The miracle is in yourself, it cannot be outside. The world cannot produce a miracle, for it is not the purpose for which it’s been created.

You hold a grievance because you believe you are ego. And as an ego, you treat life as you unique, separate and special experience and not having it means death. You are afraid of Love inside, but only as an ego. You’ve seemingly chosen to be an ego. Each moment you are making the same choice again. Each moment is a chance to choose differently.

You’ve chosen to sleep and this is the purpose you believe in. The fear you feel is simply unreasonable unwillingness to change your purpose into awakening.

Unchanged and Pure

A Brother stands in front of me,
In light, in perfect holiness I see
Him standing still, secure –
Unchanged and pure.

My love extending towards him,
God’s Love, not ego’s fleeting whim,
Of one thing I am sure –
It is unchanged and pure.

The lies you hear
So intricately ringing in your ear,
They’re difficult, they change,
For they’re designed to derange.

The Truth is simple, it’s your cure,
The Truth you’re destined to reclaim –
Forever same,
Unchanged and pure.

Laws of Unhappiness

You have created the laws of unhappiness. You never meant it, it is just a result of a tiny, senseless mistake. But then you chose to follow your laws and suffer.

After this, can you truly believe that you know what’s good? You have created the laws of suffering and death, and it is only your own choice to obey them. And you don’t even remember how this come to be, otherwise you would have undone your laws at once.

So first of all, choose to remember. Look upon your error and realize it does not exist. The laws of suffering will vanish, and pain, and hate, and death will be no more.

Body and pain

The body cannot exist without the pain. You can think of pain as something cruel, evil and unfair. You might think of it as your friend – a sign that something’s wrong with your body and you must protect it. But what you can’t deny is there’s hardly any better proof that body’s real.

You can study, meditate, pray, think of enlightenment, but when you cut your finger it bleeds and hurts. How can you overcome the world when it can pull your strings so easily?

For the ego the purpose of pain is to make your body real. It needs to convince you, for it’s afraid – without your belief, the dream of ego will be gone.

But you are not your ego. And you are not your body. So how can pain help you find the Truth?

When looking at the pain with God, you’ll recognize, it’s but a sign that you believe in laws of unhappiness. You’ll remember the time when you seemed to have made the mistaken choice. If you but open your eyes, the pain will help you to wake up. You might not want it, but you created it yourself – and you support it every moment with only your belief.

When you remember how and why this seeming pain has come to be, you will know that it is not anymore. Yes, the body cannot exist without the pain. But what is pain if body cannot be at all?

When I am tempted

When I am tempted,
I’m afraid.
I’m guilty,
And I hate:
I blame them,
I condemn,
I live in fear,
And I smear.

When I do all of this,
Can I expect a smile to be returned?
What am I choosing – hell or peace?
Will they believe it’s Love I’ve earned?

No, they reply the same:
They put me down in shame
And they blame.
They say:
I’m worthless,
Pitiful,
Deranged.
I’m plagued –
My hate still lives in them,
It is unchanged.


And when I love,
I feel such peace inside,
The light has finally entered in my sight.
I don’t see pain,
Nor suffering in vain,
I don’t condemn –
I don’t see them.

It’s only Love I see –
A Brother answered to my plea,
And now we’re One,
Both finally free.

You need but Look

All the unhappiness, the fear, pain and suffering would disappear if you would simply look at its source. The ego gives you many images, for it is truly afraid of you looking directly at it.

No one can escape from illusions unless he looks at them, for not looking is the way they are protected. (T-11.V.1:1)

You need but look,
And realize,
That path you took
Led you astray.
Somehow the promises that ego gave away,
The lies it told – seemed real.

For tiny instant you became confused and fell asleep.
You saw the dream of suffering and pain,
Your slumber seemed so deep.
And is it not a shame?
You came so far
Not realizing who You truly are.

And yet, you need but look around
And realize – the happiness is nowhere to be found.
You’ve looked for it outside for years,
Was it worth it to shed all these tears?
And still remain – unhappy, unfulfilled,
So lonely in this illusion that you’ve built…

But don’t despair, just look again,
This time inside – it won’t be in vain.

Perceptual problems

Unhappiness and problems is something you perceive. It seems to be and yet it’s not. Do not discount how powerful your mind is – if you believe in pain, loneliness, hate and lack, you will create appropriate circumstances for yourself and start perceiving what you believe in. No thought is idle, be careful what you will.

Knowing this you have but choose again.

You’ve chosen to create this world the way you see it. But seeing, feeling, touching is nothing more than a perception.

First, choose to perceive the world for what it is – an illusion, made by the ego to convince you there is nothing to be had beyond it. Realize that this illusion is nothing and it’s hiding from you everything. Then, choose to see beyond it. There lies true vision.

Three Stages of Forgivness

Conditional Forgiveness

At this stage there is no forgiveness at all – there is only judgement. You constantly judge your Brothers and then you “forgive” them – given they follow your conditions.

We could also call this “ego forgiveness”. The ego feels powerful if it can look down on a Brother and “forgive” him, with understanding that he will soon sin again, be condemned, and guilt will force him to return for more.

Forgetful Forgiveness

You realize that temporal forgiveness is not real – and when conditions are given, you can be sure enough they will be broken. So you try to truly let go of judging your Brother, but you forget.

This is a period of increasing conflict, because you do not want to follow ego’s path no more, but you still do. You turn between two opposites, and don’t accept just yet that one of them is not real.

This is an important stage and you will persevere. You’ll make mistakes, but every time you’ll choose again. And very soon the ego won’t be something you’ll ever look upon again.

True Forgiveness

True Forgiveness is, simply, lack of judgement. You cannot condemn a Brother and then truly forgive him. You grant True Forgiveness to each one through overlooking ego. You’ll see nothing but Light of God and there will be nothing you could judge.

You realized that rather than trying to be “right”, following the path of the ego, you’d rather have peace.

A Simple Choice

God or ego – that is all there is to choose between in this world.

Complexity is of the ego – to hide the Truth, it gives us thousands views of what is false. Complexity is not of God:

How could it be, when all He knows is one? He knows of one creation, one reality, one truth and but one Son. Nothing conflicts with oneness. How, then, could there be complexity in Him? (T-26.III.1:1-5)

While we’re still here, it’s hard to avoid the form. And yet, our choice on the level of form is not important. God has nothing to do with form. It is the meaning we give to anything of this world that makes the choice for us.

Each moment of your life you make this choice. Unconscious it may be, but idle it is not. Don’t be afraid of past mistakes, but know better Now, and choose again.
