The Poem for Peace
In the weary marrow of this world, where uncertainties abide,
Tumult whispers to the wind, confusion at its side.
Yet in this dance of shadows, let not your hearts be swayed,
For peace and prosperity are gems, not easily decayed.
Look! The world is like a reed, bending in a storm,
A symphony of chaos, struggling to transform.
Yet amidst this worldly uproar, the flute begins its song,
A melody of harmony, where peace and love belong.
Can you not hear it whispering, the tune that calls for peace?
A gentle hymn, a lullaby, bidding turmoil cease.
Sung by the soul, that ageless voice, echoes in our core,
An eternal rhythm pulsing, reminding us of more.
Through the looking glass of fear, we see but dire straits,
Yet, a garden blooms within, behind life’s iron gates.
Tend to your inner sanctuary, make it grow and shine,
In it, find your peace and wealth, the truly divine.
Do not bind your spirit with chains of gold and silver,
Prosperity lies not in excess, but in love’s shiver.
In giving, we receive; in serving, we are served,
In this circle of life, true wealth is conserved.
Look to the sun, that radiant orb, gifting us its light,
Ask not for its bounty, yet it shines so bright.
Take your cue from nature, be generous and kind,
In this giving, find prosperity, leave avarice behind.
In the marketplace of fears, buy not the merchants’ wares,
Instead, purchase patience, sow seeds of love and cares.
When you find your heart at war, plagued by strife and doubt,
Seek the quiet within, let tranquility sprout.
It’s in silence we discover, the peace that always was,
A mirror pool of serenity, unaffected by worldly cause.
The prosperity we yearn for, it resides within our soul,
An inner wealth, a joy untapped, making us whole.
There’s a hidden sweetness in the stomach’s emptiness,
From fasting of worldly greed, springs the fruit of kindness.
Feast not on the husks of excess, the hollow glamour and gleam,
But nourish on love and peace, a richer stream.
We are not just earthly beings, born of dust and air,
But celestial bodies, with a light we’re here to share.
Awaken, dear friend, from this deep and fretful sleep,
Realize your potential, promises to keep.
In the heart of uncertainty, a constant truth remains,
Peace and prosperity exist, beyond life’s gains.
Look within, dear friend, unlock your inner door,
In this vast mansion of the soul, explore, oh explore!
Remember Rumi’s words, uttered in the dance of the pen,
“In silence, there is eloquence. Start anew, again.”
In the quiet of your being, in the stillness of your mind,
The poem for peace you’ll find, leaving uncertainty behind.
Note: Other Imaginotions by Dr. Joe Vitale
When I look around my office, I see success literature everywhere.
One of my favorites, especially in my early years, was Napoleon Hill’s classic, Think and Grow Rich.
You know that one. But I wonder if you know about another, smaller book he wrote 40 years later, when he was nearly 85 years old, called Grow Rich with Peace of Mind.
He said he wrote it because he wanted to demonstrate more fully not only that “there is more to life than making money” but also “that peace of mind in itself is a mighty force in helping you make money.”
He’s right on both counts.
But here’s something else he wrote – something intriguing you might easily overlook:
“I have said this book has been nearly 70 years in the planning. Quite true, but until recently I did not know it. I believe we are all guided by invisible sources of inspiration, and recently there came to me inspiration from a strange and very real source, revealing how much of my life has been spent in preparing me to write these pages, urging me to uncover my typewriter and get to work.”
Just reading that gives me chills — especially in light of my newest audio program with Nightingale-Conant – The Zero Point: How to Enter the Realm of Limitless Possibilities.
What is this invisible source of inspiration that Napoleon Hill describes?
The Zero Point.
The White Board.
All that is.
Zero is not something “out there.”
It’s something within you, intrinsic and innate, that whispers to your heart, “Be this…Do this…”
It includes your mind, but goes beyond your mind.
It’s how you can think bigger than ever before.
Zero is alive – and you can make a request of it that is so magnificent that you’re constantly able to live a life of consistent expectancy.
This is not the same as intending something.
Intentions are from your ego, based on your past.
They’re based on what your mind thinks is possible, which means that intentions are based on current data.
They have built-in limitations.
Inspiration, on the other hand, can blow your mind.
How do you receive this kind of inspiration?
As I wrote in my recently released book, At Zero: The Quest for Miracles through Ho’oponopono —
“The key to modern day Ho’oponopono is letting go of any and all programs, so you can be one with Divinity, otherwise called at Zero. The secret is to delete the programming as you become aware of it. When you do, Divinity will come to you and through you.”
I believe when Napoleon Hill talked about peace of mind and inspiration, he was referring to the Zero Point. I believe he was quite familiar with it.
How else could he have written a book that reached around the world as many times as Think and Grow Rich?
Just as I said in my new audio program, the promise of Zero, of awakening to your Divinity, is such that it will “help you create limitless possibilities for yourself, your family, your friends, and the world at large – from this day forward, a new level of peace, joy, and confidence.”
Napoleon Hill – he was my kind of guy.
Inspiration was his secret, too.
