The World Is Like a Little Child . a visionary poem by Alice B. Clagett

Journalled on 3 December 2009

Dear Ones,

The world is like a little child, begging us
to come out of our heart home and play.
Come out and play with me for a little while!
Then when the longing returns —
to be home again — what a happy thought!
Heart is where the home is!
And here it has been,
right within me, all this time!

I Don’t Remember . A Poem by Alice B. Clagett

Written on 7 July 2019; published on 16 July 2019

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice. I Am of the Stars.

At writing class this month, we had an assignment to write a story on the topic: I Don’t Remember. My gift to the class was this poem …

I Don’t Remember
A Poem by Alice B. Clagett
7 July 2019

I don’t remember
how I came to Earth
Not exactly.

I remember flying,
….. falling,
………. swooping down
…………… from somewhere

Holding my archangel’s hand …

A spiral
………. downward dance

Full of
…..  joyful notions
………..  of the things
………………  that were to be

Through something
….. seeming solid
……….  yet not so

Suddenly
….. Not knowing!

Darkness
softly thumping

Then felt
the hopeful turning
of the child
I was to be.

. . . . .

The Time Will Come . a poem by Alice B. Clagett

Dear Ones,

Here is one of my early poems …

THE TIME WILL COME
A Poem by Alice B. Clagett
amongst her early works

The time will come  – –
The last wild place
will be the freeway’s
edge

wild creatures’ ears accustomed to the noise

noses tuned by slow cull to tell
exhaust from predator’s
faint scent

On Being One With God: The Divine Masculine . a vision by Alice B. Clagett

Dear Ones,

THE FUTURE ROLE OF MEN

I see it can be very hard for men in these days of the great change. In aeons past, they have been the great Protectors, the Wise Shepherds of this World.

In future, what shall their role be?

MEN AND SEXUALITY

I had an interesting experience the night before last. My EMF (electromagnetic field) was huge, gigantic really. Joined to me in an etheric act of sex was a man.

Though he felt he was the only man, I sensed many men there too, each with a different woman.

Though each man felt he was the man performing this act, and each woman felt she was the woman performing this act, yet I sensed each was my own Soul, performing this act with my own physical body.

In one sense, we cause the act of sexual delight, each with another partner.

In another sense, we are the Cause, and we are the Partner.

In another sense, there is no Cause and no Partner, and yet, there is that Experience of Supreme Joy.

ALICE’S VISION DURING A LONG MEDITATION: MEN AS CHILDREN OF GOD

Image: Baby Krishna carried over the Yamuna River by his father Vasudeva. And so Lord Krishna is fondly called Vasudevaya, ‘the son of Vasudeva’, https://iamofthestars.files.wordpress.com/2015/01/3838d-ta-118.jpg ..

I had a vision once, in the early 2000’s. I was meditating in an Indian-style temple. It was during a long evening meditations, interspersed with some beautiful kirtan.

There was a courtyard outside. Both day and night it sparkled with blue white light, not just down near the ground, where people walked, but high up into the sky.

In my vision, Lord Krishna sat in the courtyard. His etheric essence filled the courtyard, shimmering out into the temple and the parking lot, and higher still. He held his hand out in front of him, at heart level, cupped.

In his hand sat a person playing kirtan, completely immersed in Divine love. The picture above reminds me a little of my vision.

MEN AND DESIRE

Image: “Lord Krishna Swallows the Uncontrollable Forest Fire,” http://david.deltaflow.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/08/Krishna-swallows-fire.jpg … story here: http://david.deltaflow.com/?p=2429 ..

The fire of desire may seem uncontrollable. But Divine Masculine is its master!

The Shift occurs on realizing that the object of desire lies not outside us, but within us.

Desire begins to be felt, not by our body toward another person, but by our Soul toward our Human Form.

So Desire becomes manifestation of the Divine in this physical form. Fulfilled ceaselessly, in Highest Joy, as an act of creation, in the Now. (2)

NONDUALITY

I AM THAT ETERNAL FLAME
A Poem by Alice B. Clagett
27 January 2015

I am that Eternal Flame.
I am the Light and the Life.
I am the Way and the One who has found it.
I am the Dark that shapes this Light.
I am the All.
I am that within the All,
nurtured and nurturing.
Always the flame.
Ever changing.

LORD KRISHNA’S MANTRA OF LIBERATION

Video: “Om Namoh Bhagavate Vasudevaya” a mantra of Lord Krishna, as performed by Krishna Das, posted by felizporeleccion, 12 April 2012 … https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j3qyxosBDTg .. This is a Mukti (liberation) mantra and a spiritual formula for attaining freedom.

FOOTNOTES

(1) I feel it is a mistake to imagine these are two separate people.

Rather, to me it seems this is a picture of the One God, at one with His Creation.

So then, as a man identifying with Godness, how can he look down on woman, who is one with him?

Is it not true that a woman bore us?
Who then is higher? Who lower?
If we are That, is She not the Source of That?

Guru Nanak wrote a beautiful prayer about this. See Citation: “Raag Aasaa Mehala 1” by Guru Nanak, Page 473; http://www.srigurugranth.org/0473.html .., Search the term: From woman … and then read the following text.

Dear Ones,

Here is a visionary poem I wrote in 2011. There is a Summary after the video …

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice.

I have a poem for you that I wrote a long time ago. There are two words that sound alike in it. The sound is /bôrn/  and the first one … ‘born’ … has the usual meaning. The second one … ‘bourne’ … sounds alike but is spelled differently; it means ‘carried’. Here is the poem …

Whether the Wind Blow
A Poem by Alice B. Clagett
2011

Whether the wind blow
or no
whether we be born
or breathed into being
or bourne, naught but eyes,
beyond ever so far
unblinking
on that breeze that flows
sparkling
between the galaxies …

If memory serves,
it was so.
So may it ever be.

Postlude

the winds of the world

STONEGATE I
A Poem by Alice B. Clagett
16 April 2017

Before Time was, I am

When all that is
. . . was but a whisper on the wind
. . . I was that wind.

And finer still,
. . . the wind behind the wind
. . . the hour before the day
. . . . . . underscores sky
. . . . . . with a horizon

The breath within the breath
. . . The sigh within dawn’s
. . . eye-bright, healing light
. . . that tumbles down upon
. . . the gate within this stone

This place of dread, dark fire
This mountain called desire
. . . pry that stone gate
. . . to my remembered Star
