Poetry: About intuition, instinct, and following our inner voice

Gut feeling, instinct, intuition, inner knowing, inner guidance.

We should learn to hear the soft inner voice of our own soul as it tries to guide us whilst we are on our life journeys.

These poems are about how to do just that!

Poetry: Our intuition comes to us as a soft inner voice from our inner guide, or our soul

Our intuition, or our soul lives within us by God's defined designed design.
It talks to us about how to improve our lives to be divinely finely combined.
If we decline its help, we live our lives then haplessly, redesigned, blindly blind.
We'll find nothing happily shines in us without our following its enshrined signs.

Intuition is more refined than it just being an instinct that's on cloud nine.
It's the inner voice reminding our mind what step to take next as love's outlined.
Acceptance of what our intuition tells us to do unties us from our binding bind.
Following our intuitional nudges allows us to live a new life now all sublime.

Poetry: God's truth lives within us trying to be the real us!

His Truth lives in us

Is there anything about which we can truly say?
"There's no doubt about it," while still feeling okay.
What does a doubt really convey about us anyway?
Something in our guts is remaining still undiscussed!

We can only hold onto any old doubts with our mind.
Our heart knows this truth, that our gut then reminds.
We must not suppress our own intuitional nudges,
otherwise we'll be doubting too much as we grudges.

Questioning's not the same as mistrusting, you know.
Uncertainty need not ever cause any doubts to grow.
Life is about living without all the answers to begin with,
until we replace all our doubts by knowing what's within.

The shaky ground you stand on is only your own, you'll find.
If there's doubt about it, it's been home-grown in your own mind.
If you accept who you're not for who you're really not yet showing,
you'll never doubt your doubts, or find what's sown, yet unknown.

When we live only from God's love, there is no doubt to doubt.
If we shout out this truth, we'll rout out what's not yet come out to out.
"There's no doubt about it," God holds all of his answers all within us.
His truth lives in us as much as we accept what he transfers across.

We are who we are!

God said to Moses, "I AM WHO I AM."

The truth empties itself into life from its ocean of love, and this is who you are, one of the vehicles that fills up with love for a time to distil God's truth within, and to filter the false from the true, or your mind's thoughts from your heart's knowings.

This is essentially why you are who you are. You are you because God is God.

Why are we not more often our real self, but feel so false then, by our not knowing who we really are?

This is because the emptiness must be allowed to sit and be filled in God's time, and this requires you not to fill it yourself with your own wants and fears.

When you be who you are not, you are not who you be.

Our real self is a bit of misnomer in that all is part of the one greater reality, but the outer self, if it cuts off the inner self, loses its full view of the totality of God's reality of oneness, and so it then feels separated off from this in some way, and that usually then manifests in the outer self as fear.

Most of us do not know why we are who we are. This is because we are trying to be this false person whom we think that we are, but who we really are not.

We are who we are, because we can never be any other.

It has been said that we must first get lost before we can be found. This is how we can find who we really are.

Getting lost is thinking that we are only our lower bodies, and being found is when we discover the intuitional insights that are always coming to us from our higher self.

When we discover where these insights are in fact originating from, it is then that we have discovered our real self, and so at this stage we are no longer lost by being our lower selves only.

To discover our real self is the beginning of our real journey into increasing our conscious connection to God's love, and so to building an inner awareness, and thereby obtaining the insight into who we really are in relationship to God.

"Be yourself, but always your better self."

This quote is from Karl G. Maeser, (1828 to 1901).

Karl is described as being an American educator, a fancy way of saying that he was a school teacher.

What he teaches us to do here is right, I think too. When we be our better self, we are being our real self. I would like to think that this is what he really meant here by this.

Who God says that he is

When we have answered for ourselves the question of who we really are, we will find then a lot of other answers then too.

This is the real self-discovery, and it will lead to the remarkable finding that you must be God as well, or at least that you are being contained somehow within him. God is all as you will soon discover from finding yourself within him.

God once said in answer to the question put to him about who he was, that he is who he is. We are the same, we are who we are, and the only real reason for this is because God is who he is too.

This comes from out of the Christian bible, and where God apparently replied to Moses in these words. Moses had asked God about who could he say God was to those who asked him about what God's real name was, or about who it was that had sent him to talk to them.

God said here to Moses, " I AM WHO I AM."

This comes from the book of Exodus, and this verse is to be found at chapter 3, and verse 14.

If even God does not know why he is who he is, neither then can we. We should just strive to be the part of God that we are, and leave the rest to God.

I am who I am, because I have been created to be who I am.

Nothing else can ever affect who I really am.

Experiences are a dime a dozen, and experiences can show us or reflect to us who we are, but they cannot ever define the real person, or the soul, or the part of God, who we really are.

"Always be yourself, express yourself, have faith in yourself, do not go out and look for a successful personality and duplicate it."

Bruce Lee, (1940 to 1973) that great martial artist and actor, says it so well here.

We are not the duplicate of anyone. We must be ourselves to be our self!

That means we must be our real self to be our true self.

Most of us are still searching for who we are, and until we accept that God is God, this search will continue.
Good one, spirited.

Thought provoking, thanks Spirited. Most forget about the existence of inner voice and are totally lost. They search everywhere except where it matters most.

We beat about the bush when we forget the anchor that holds us together, sort of run around like a headless chicken - applies to countries too and their inter-relations.

We should keep unraveling the mysteries of life through learning from others but our self-inquiry is vital as each is different with unique roles to play - siva

I like your observation and the way you expressed it here siva.

Yes, I think that countries have such an inner voice too, that needs also to be listened to, too.

The still small voice within is often silenced by the deafening uproar without, but it is always there for everyone if we will but go into the silence. This is our higher self or God speaking to us. Who are we? The Bible says in Psalm 82:6 Ye are gods! Blessings

thanks Kingwell, thanks for that quote from the bible.

Not many might know that quote. We are indeed all Gods, or at least we make up some part of the overall body of God. Even Paul says that we are all a part of God's body.

The inner voice is our guiding spirit. We often tend to ignore it, which is why we err and thereby, suffer for the misdeeds committed.

Exceptional poetry, Spirited.

I'm speechless!

Thanks Joyesh, I am guilty of ignoring it probably more times than I've followed it.

In the end though, I think we all move forwards because of this voice which one way or another gets us all to listen to it somehow in the end.

Thanks for praising my attempt at poetry too.
