From:   99 Poems of the Spirit

In this loveless land of Spirit lost
where the Prince of Darkness rules,
there stands a sign before the gate,
"Behold, the World of Fools!"

Ignorance and insanity
reign supreme within this land.
For eons struggles every soul
to reach the rung of man,

and when God finally lifts the soul
to the highest rung within the Wheel--
eight million four hundred thousand rungs--
man forgets to kneel!

He takes his form for granted;
squanders priceless time;
wastes his every precious breath
to rise above the mind,

above, beyond, this evil land
where Satan truly rules;
thus hangs a sign around his neck,
"Behold!  The fool of fools!"

Trapped in anger and in pride,
attachment, lust and greed,
man falls, again, sadly again
for the signs he did not read.

"You do not own your body,"
says the Lord to lucky man.
"I've graced you with this human form
so you can leave this land

and rise within my Kingdom
to come and be with Me,
to live within my warm embrace
for all eternity,

to share the peace, the bliss, the love
as all souls with me feel,
and all I asked was your sweet love,
but you forgot to kneel.

Instead, you lost yourself in sin.
You, my commandments cherished not.
Somehow, you never realized
that with a price you're bought!

This human body is not yours.
I gave it you to see
if you would love the world
or give your love to me.

Sadly, you have missed the chance
to use this holy tool
to finally gain Salvation,
and still you play the fool!

Have you never heard my words?
Do you scripture never read?
Have you no knowledge of the Law?
Why do you never heed

the teachings of the Saints
whom I gave to judge the world,
to lift you 'in' and 'up'
and prevent you being hurled

back into the Wheel
where fears and tears abound,
where eons you will wail and flail
and I can n'er be found;

where you will howl in horror,
drenched in demon fright
for failing, while in human form,
to seek My Living Light,

and live within My Sacred Laws,
Laws based in purity?
In truth, it is the only way
to avoid this tragedy.

I have told you very clear,
you rest in My employ,
and if you violate My Laws,
you I will destroy!

Your body is the Temple
of the Living Lord of Light,
and if you choose defilement,
then I will set you right

and I will throw you back
into the fire 'til you learn
that you must not defile Me
or I will make you burn;

burn not to destroy
but to purify your mind,
that you finally learn to cherish
this human life Divine.

Please do not be deceived.
I have made My Laws.
If you choose not to honor them,
your tears will have their cause.

I will not tolerate your sin
in this human form I gave.
Repent and purify, my love,
or your soul I will not save.

Listen not to earthly talk
or those from worldly schools.
This land is not my paradise--
it is my World of Fools!

God and mammon you can't serve.
Divided houses fall.
One day you'll be made to claim
the consequences of your call,

and if you lead a holy life
all will turn out well,
but if you don't, then tragically,
I will send you to hell,

and you will burn, make no mistake,
for eons--fire and strife.
So critical is this human form,
so critical is this life,

that if it has been wasted
and focused on the world,
back into the endless depths
will your soul be hurled.

Beware!  I warn you!  Heed these words!
The end is coming soon.
Do not squander this great gift
and lose this precious boon.

The time is now to seek the Lord.
Wait not another day.
Endless darkness waits for thee
if you choose not to pay

the price for loving God
and seeking all that's pure,
for cherishing this human life
and to the end endure.

Please, dear child, time is near
when Death will wield his tool.
Purify your life in Mine,
and do not die a fool!"
