I Sit at the River Within


Following up my post from yesterday (The Importance of Creating a Beautiful Inner World), I wanted to also share a poem that I wrote during that time period … back when I had removed my ancient blockages and was beginning the work of re-making my inner world to be a place of beauty.

I Sit at the River Within 

I sit at the river within;


This place that


was a fetid bog

now flows so free;

with rolling hills

and beauty

all around.

Every block removed,

every dam destroyed

and I am free …

at long last.

I kept trying

to find my way out

instead of just


and healing

that inner land.

I trace my fingers

through the flowing currents

and let them pass …

I just let them go.

They are there;

the same stuff that

once was swamp

but now they serve

the soil

around where I sit

at the river within …

and then they flow

to wherever

the Universe wills.


Religion4All is an idea: that every human being (no matter their race, religion, sexuality, social status, lifestyle, or any other possible factor) is LOVED by God; just … as … they are.

We all are loved by God, and NO religion or person has a monopoly on it. Every single person on this planet is loved equally by God … SO many are cut off from God because they are told they don’t belong. God loves everyone … we ALL are beautiful creations … we don’t need to cringe when we hear the words “God”, or “religion”, or their judgments … God LOVES us all!

There is no requirement to change in order to be LOVED by God, or to LOVE God. God is LOVE, and LOVE is God … period. There is no one who God loves more than anyone else … there are only those who choose to LOVE more … to love God more, and consequently then to love each other more. In doing so, we grow closer to God … and know God.

By opening our hearts, and minds to God (free of boundaries like religion, or social trends); by LOVING God … we are exactly where we are meant to be. If we maintain that openness, never allowing any person or event to make us close our hearts, we will be guided by God to be who we are meant to be.

In that space of openness we can then live a life of LOVE, and be guided to where we are meant to be … forever in LOVE.

Thank you. It certainly was a time of great meaning for me, so I’m glad it had meaning for you :-).
