Susceptible To Spiritual Experience

I woke up from a dream

It was no ordinary dream

 

I made decisions based on this dream

One day something happened just like in the dream

 

I’ve had lots of dreams

This one was more real than a dream

 

I considered this a spiritual dream

Because it wasn’t like any other dream

 

While cutting my lawn I heard a voice

I was given promises by this voice

 

I memorized the words of this voice

This was not an inside my head voice

 

This was an outside my head voice

This was a spiritual voice

 

I started asking questions of this spiritual voice

Answers came immediately from the voice

 

After a time the voice became an inside my head voice

After a while I gave up asking questions of the voice

 

This is when my obsession with the rational mind began

I never want my work with the rational mind to end

 

But it happened again

The spiritual mind began again

 

I leaned over a rail

To observe Roman ruins

 

I saw a man appear under an arch

He was as old as the arch

 

He said he made the arch

He said it was a two thousand year old arch

 

I’ll be more careful this time around

It was a spiritual vision of a man I saw

Brick Arch in Rome

I was leaning over a rail

Looking at ruins below

 

I spotted a brick arch

Sitting under it appeared a man

 

He looked up at me

You like the brick arch I made, he asked

 

Yes I do I said

This arch is two thousand years old he then said

 

There’s sweat dropping from your brow I said

I’ve made more than one arch today he said

 

You’re just like me

Except I don’t make arches I said

 

Yes, I’m just like you

Did you expect anything less he said
