The morning shadow

Late in the summer I saw a shadow

It asked me my name

I say I am your shadow

It says, same

Look past my darkness

Stop making shapes

Take that silly look off your face

But who is it talking, shadow or me?

We are both shadows crying in the wind

For all of life’s goodness we will be so

Shadow friend, shadow foe



The reader and writer is one in the same

The reader and writer is one in the same.

Free will is then given, at the start of each day.

Although written down once; it doesn’t have to remain.

Life conspires happily, when we determine the way.

Next time you write history, remember your name.

The reader and writer is one in the same.

Failure lies in the insanity of one’s refusal to accept the truth. Where there is truth, choice is removed, and peace can again rise.

Light of Truth

The light of truth frightens us most, and not the darkness of lies. For when the light shines over us, our power has nowhere to hide.

Written by Nadia F.

Truth is the student, of certainty’s lesson in prayer

Truth is the student, of certainty’s lesson in prayer.

And in certainty the teacher is found.

Even if countless faiths pray all at once.

The truth can never be drowned out.

Written by Nadia F.

Inspiration is the tool of creation

The hand of willingness, always holds the right tool. For inspiration is the tool of creation.

The tool then dictates, it must copy for now, until it discovers it’s own creation.

Once joy is found, a new tool is passed around, to the next willing hand, for creation.

There are many tools, that we can choose, but the hand must be willing to open.

The Faithful One

The faithful one stood in the doorway of the church, and prayed to God to make himself known, when he heard no voice, he walked away.  God was not at the church.

The faithful one stood in the doorway of the mosque, and prayed to God to make himself known, when he heard no voice, he walked away.  God was not at the mosque.

The faithful one stood in the doorway of the temple, and prayed to God to make himself known, when he heard no voice, he walked away.  God was not at the temple.

The faithful one decided to end his search to find his God, and to have him make himself known.  He decided it was time to go, his journey was meaningless and he was alone.

The faithful one stood in the doorway of his house, and prayed to God to make himself known, when he heard no voice, he walked inside.  God was not in his home.

The faithful one stood in the doorway of his mind, and prayed to his own self, to make himself known.  A voice answered, and it was God, and he was certain he was now known.

Beyond A Beautiful Thing

Here is an an extract from Beyond A Beautiful Thing.

His great responsibility in his powerful position, gave him an in-depth insight into the student’s mind.  He would only ever demonstrate to those that were willing.  The others in dreamland would do as they pleased; and so they should.  Because forceful teachings were counteractive; for free will to choose was removed.  Instead he accepted that when his students were willing, the lessons would teach themselves; as supporting evidence would be provided through synchronicity.

The teacher knew that universities and schools did not determine who was able to teach truth.  Instead it was located in unequivocal certainty, and set by the unambiguous guidelines of the universal governing body.  The teacher observed, but never entertained those who had claimed to have found the philosopher’s stone; the penultimate answer to the only question ever asked, and the question from which all questions arose.  How could he?  For such gasps of truth, were various perceptions, interpreted by many men; the source of internal and external conflict, and the cause of countless wars.  Instead the teacher knew that truth gave way to one meaning, one purpose and one answer.

Those interpretations argued for many centuries could not make the truth, untrue.  His knowing was not threatened by the endless claims, of like minded pockets of individuals who collectively chanted in union.  They protested too much, that their forceful thinking was the way for all.  He knew that truth had no interpretation and needed no defense.  It was an innate gift of knowing.  Truth was only accurate if it resonated in everyone; without any exceptions.  If this was not so; then it was not truth. Instead individual falsities would continue to inflict on others right to choose, in a world that demanded to be right, instead of loving.

Extract from Beyond A Beautiful Thing.

Author’s Note for my novel.

Why have so many love seekers chosen beautiful sights, over love’s ever bright light?  The answer is free will.  No person is ever created without a purpose or a person to love them, unconditionally and totally.  There is always a reason for being, and a being is created to love and be loveable.  If someone has not found their purpose, or love for another, reciprocated in total unity; they must have overlooked love, to instead see beauty alone.

Beautiful things are witnessed by those, who look to copy another’s happiness.  This is to be a spectator to someone else’s joy.  For to accept only beauty is to settle for second best.  It is a temporary glimpse into the happiness created by others, for others.

Instead light seekers invite love in with certainty, before the means are even carried out and the ends are given.  They block all other roads for their cause to journey on, so it has no choice but to collide magnificently on the crossroad of effect.  Their destiny is found in the love that patiently lies in between all that is now, and all that has ever been.  They understand that free will calls, for the reader and writer to be one in the same.

Therefore the idea that some are more deserving of love than others is untrue.  Deserving is just another way of saying perception, as it is this which manifests the reality in the eye of the beholder.  Many perceptions are conditioned into us when we are young, and so we must find our own truth, if we are to see love with clarity.

In clarity there is certainty in our ability to create freely.  No longer do we believe that our destiny is preordained through culture, religion or environment.  Or look to our parents, teachers or peers to tell us how love is to be.  Instead it is up to us to willingly invite love in, and only then can we see that love is beyond just a beautiful thing.
