Spirit-Body and Soul. Are you listening to your inner voice?
We are spiritual human beings- who live in a body and possess a soul.
My spirit is in bondage, at night I hear her scream...
"I'm yearning, burning, desiring to be free!"
I'm awed by these words, they inspire me.
she's yearning- discerning- desiring to be free.
She says she's the spirit, that speaks to the soul.
And she's crying out-loud for her words to be heard.
I'm fueled by her passion, it burns within me.
she's yearning- burning- desiring to be free.
Her words are creative, she speaks poetically.
She's trying-striving- desiring to be free.
She says she's the passion that lives within me.
And she's dying- trying - crying to be free.
She says she's the spirit of body and soul
And she's crying out loud for her words to be heard.
I'm fueled by her fire... it burns within me.
For she's yearning!
Desiring to be free!
I can be anything I want to be. But, if it is to be, it's up to me!— unknown
I credit this book for helping me to unlock the boundaries that kept me in spiritual bondage.

Your gifts are designed to bless the world.
This is a poem about passion and drive so consuming it burns. My awakened spirit longs to be all that she can be in this short time on earth. Those who have read my poem "My eyes are opened" have a better understanding of why I have an "awakening" that is very intense.
It's my sincere wish that by sharing the desires of my heart, I encourage all who recognize their gifts, to pursue them for the betterment or, uplifting of our brother and sisters; and pursue them with a diligence that burns.
Nothing brings more glory to our Lord than recognizing we are so unique, so wonderfully and fearfully made, that we can do anything that is placed in our hearts to do.
Using the tools you were born with.
When your spirit-body and soul are perfectly aligned with the universe, you are capable of operating in your fullest potential. Your gifts are not always designed to bring wealth, but are designed to bring joy to the lives of others. There are people who do not see their gifts as important. They've been brainwashed in negative- worldly- ways. for example: "It can't be too important if I can't make money off of it." Walking in fear or "lack" has caused many to down play their gifts as hobbies, or something they could do in their spare time. The truth is our gifts are the tools we possess to enable us to be successful in this world; and it's up to us to discover them, and utilize them to the best of our ability. You were born with the necessary tools to complete your destiny on earth. You have all that you need. Now, the only thing is to let go of the fear, step into the shoes and walk.
Don't be afraid to be different.
When you decide to pursue your passion don't be surprised or swayed by the reaction of other people. People who think " outside of the box " are viewed as strange creatures, and you are strange when you go against the grain. We are taught to go to school, go to college and find a good job. Rarely do you find people who will motivate you to strive to be your own person and all that that entails. We all crave security, and unfortunately we have been trained that security only comes with a stable paycheck. What you don't understand is no matter how you slice it, someone else is in control of your joy, your finance's, your peace of mind. Also, what the world will blind you to is the fact that more than likely you will stress yourself out, sometimes working more than one job, just to find out that for all your stress, and all your hard work, somehow you'll never be rich. By the time you become enlightened to this you have worked yourself into bad health, plenty of debt and are spiritually and mentally in bondage.
