Raw 9/11/2001 WTC Memorial Poem: YOU DIED

Hot:

A raw memorial poem I wrote in NYC in 2001 immediately after destruction of the World Trade Center & the slaughter of 4,000:

YOU DIED.

My heart is ripped open.
Gouged open.
I am in shock.
I am grief.

* * * * * * * * * * *

My brain is pounding pounding
My pulse is crazed
Everything is askew
Empty
Whirling
Gasping breathless.
I’m spinning.
Who will catch me?
What can heal me?
What is real?
Where are you now?

* * * * * * * * * * *

No words to cry.
No one to hear me.
No way to cry.
My blood runs away.
Painfully sweet.
My pain flows like warm honey
Into your hive.
Into my full memories of you.

* * * * * * * * * * *

Incredible loss.
Horrific waste.
No comprehension.
I will never see you again?
Impossible.
My heart recoils at the thought
Like a gunshot aimed
In a terribly
Insanely
Wrong direction.
Look, I’ll prove it.
With my eyes closed tight right now,
I can still see you . . .

* * * * * * * * * * *

Life.
Slowly.
Flows.
Back.
Into my wretched heart.
Heals it like a
Long-vanished ocean tide
Returning to bathe crusted shores
To wash away my grief.
I am so grateful to you.

* * * * * * * * * * *

I can feel you grinning with relief.
At me.
You live in stunning new dimensions.
You see me finally
Waking up.
And.
Breathing.
Deeply.
On my side of the ripped veil.
We are both going to be
Okay.
In the morning, my tears taste
Good.

* * * * * * * * * * *


Bloody History of this Raw Memorial Poem

These few words about slaughtered friends,
about unexpected sacrifices, losses, grief and redemption
at NYC’s World Trade Center and across America
were written one gray morning after September 11, 2001.

Pinned to the sagging wire fence at Union Square Park–

surrounded by heaps of sad flowers taped to hopeful notes
pleading for any word of the whereabouts of loved ones lost in the confusion–

lit by nearby pools of candles burning in memoriam over smiling family photos of the doomed–

abandoned to the elements just a stone’s throw from the Dalai Lama’s
scale model of the Twin Towers wreathed in carnations and tears–

half hidden next to park visitors’ unforgettable words and pictures of anguish,
anger, prayer and pleading scrawled on a giant public paper canvas taped around all the paths–

two weeks later to be rolled up & shipped to the Smithsonian for what?
for safekeeping?–

my simple words lost in the miserable maze heaped
below the 145 year old gray equestrian statue of Washington
inscribed in bold chalk letters with the message PEACE NOT WAR–

this little memorial poem somehow got scooped up & quoted
on sites dotting the countryside, such as
Tulsa World.

Is it all just about luck?
About the Divine Hand?
About when it’s your time to go, you go?

By the grace of unseen guidance I and so many others survived.
Others did not.
We still remember them.

The blessings and lessons of our lives go on.

Spiritualism and Your Future Psychic Powers–Evil? Good? Real?

Hot:

We have but to open a Bible–to the Old or New Testament–to repeatedly find the teachings that though everyone’s physical body withers and dies, every individual’s spirit lives on. This beautiful truth is a cornerstone of Spiritualism–itself, a vital cornerstone of the future evolution of Christianity and all other world religions.

Innumerable demonstrations over the last centuries by sincere, capable, spiritual mediums, or “seers” or “prophets” as described in ancient times, have proven that spirits out of the body (spirits just like you and me, in the future) desire to, and under suitable conditions can, communicate with those of us still in the body.

Studies suggest that up to 37% of all people world-wide believe they’ve had a significant unexplainable intuition, or a paranormal experience where they consciously heard, saw, met, sensed–or even touched–a deceased loved friend, family member, pet–or a being they saw as an angel, spiritual teacher, or Godly Presence–who helped them, guided them, chastised them, comforted them–even saved their lives.

Such remarkable experiences do cut across a broad cross-section of all cultures and religions. They also include Christian Spiritualist church services and message circles where such gifts of the Spirit are welcomed, and capacity to receive them honed.

. . . Skeptics and fundamentalists might ask what possibly could be the “agenda” of supposedly normal people having paranormal experiences? Could they all be deranged or confused by stress? Trying to tear down their religions? Trying to “contact evil spirits”? Trying to shelter themselves in fantasy worlds?

Or one might ask are they having NATURAL experiences–natural for the human race as it evolves & spiritually awakens from its sleep?

What percentage of the normal average human population’s souls does it take, for these experiences to be commonly accepted as real? As vital? And most importantly, as part of everyone’s spiritual awakening and essence–necessary for every religion to be able to initiate and GUIDE its adherents into?

. . . Of course, just as you hopefully wouldn’t heed the opinions or claims of every stranger that might try to bend your ear in the middle of Times Square, you also wouldn’t listen to every spirit being, or sensation, that might approach your clairvoyant “listening senses” or bring you a paranormal experience.

You would only want contact from spirits dwelling on an honorable, honest, awakened level of existence. You would reserve the right to judge whether what they say or do is relevant to you, intelligent, non-manipulative, and done in kindness. You’d want all negative contacts to “bounce off you”, or to just sail past as if you’re living on different dimensions.

You would want to surround yourself with complete loving protection, just as many surround themselves with the “sword, shield and armor” of the great Archangel Michael, renowned in Christianity, Judaism and Islam as the protector of those faithful enough to ask his help.

Wisely, you’d also ask–meaning, you’d declare as your energetic reality–that you receive contact only from spirits from the Highest Realms who accept The Light of Christ. No matter what your or that departed or enlightened soul’s religion, acceptance of reality of the Christ Light (in its Infinite Goodness and Purity) is understood in the Spirit World as a test question that must be answered honestly and clearly.

Only then would you want to proceed. Even then, you’d want to feel free to accept only those results that ring true in your heart, and make sense to your head.

Of course much heightened wisdom is rejected by our skulls though our hearts pound with its power. And many illusions and fancies grab at our hearts even as our brains say no. Growing in discernment can happen only through guided experience.

Despite all our trial-and-error learning, we as a race are entering the dawn of those future days spoken of in The Book of Isaiah, when visions, prophecies and wisdom dreams will come to the old and the young.

But many fear this dawn and these exciting concepts.

Why?

Because most of the sacred words of the religions were written down and recited by those inspired of God many centuries ago. Since those days and those prophets are long gone, what happens to those religions as their children grow into more direct access to the founts of wisdom?

Will the religions be twisted beyond recognition of their precious founding truths? Will they be ignored and cast aside? Or will they evolve into ever-greater daily blessings for their members, to provide deeper, more fulfilling passageways through life’s problems and possibilities?

Will God’s Change Energies and the New Christ Energies revolutionize everything for the better?

Peace and Happiness to you,

Do Psychic Gifts Make You More Spiritual?

Hot:

Do you think having psychic gifts makes you more spiritual?

Let’s face it:
On the one hand, plenty of saints of every religion have experienced what are called paranormal, near-miraculous or psychic gifts–yet nobody sane would claim that all psychics are saints.

Flying over the barn or the bar or the monastery will elevate your body but it wont guarantee you spiritual elevation. Turning water into wine might win the oohs and aahs of the media–and your thirstier friends–but it wont quench your spiritual thirst, or even prove your spiritual thirst.

In short, what you do for conscious gratification might not speak to your real needs.

No matter what direction you launch the arrows of your efforts, your inner intent will greatly decide what outer mark you’ll hit. Or miss.

Of course as an archer, you might not get the grand prize & mighty praise you think you seek, but you are guaranteed your emotional experience along the way.

Why is this important, you ask? After all, you seek real, measurable, worldly success. You want to smack the center of that bull’s eye! What good are fine intentions alone?

We do agree that intending to be an Olympic champion, no matter how noble your intent, wont get you far if you never pick up a bow. But you will reap the emotional result of happy daydreams along the way. Which, apparently, is what you’d really wanted–or you would have applied yourself to learning the art.

An important question, particularly for our Western culture readers:

Does your success or failure “at the end” determine the value to you “along the way”? Can you ever succeed at anything if you wont appreciate its value–and so your value–until after your moment-by-moment exploration, study, exercise, practice, trial-and-error refinement, over and over and over?

How can you be a success if you delay being that success until after you’ve succeeded or not?

Isn’t that really the intent of experiencing self restriction? Isn’t that the emotional experience of withholding your self approval and gladness at being alive? Remember, you do get the reward of emotional experience from everything you do–but does that aim really satisfy you?

Ask yourself:
What else can fulfill my strength except living my purpose?

What if your arrow–once released from your fingertips–refused to fling itself in full confidence of flight before it “knew” it would hit its mark? Why, that faithless arrow would shrivel up into a crooked stick. It’d bury its head in the ground at the soonest possible moment. Far short of any target.

But when you act with trust–that makes all the difference, doesn’t it? To set aside superficial ego chatter, just bend your bow. Focus your eyes and muscles into the distant target…

Though you might not hit the bull’s-eye you’ve been training for, you do gain benefit from your patient practice. The thrill of capably letting fly your dart. The timeless sense of inducing the birth, flight and descent of your arrow into its destined mark. Whether it’s a “hit” or a “miss”.

You are the archer.

It feels good.

The same way with any psychic powers you seek:
They feel good along the way–as long as you’re developing them with good intent.

But just as the same sharpened arrowhead can be used to kill a man in cold blood or to bring home supper to your hungry family, so your psychic powers–which are really spiritual powers awaiting recognition–can be used to harm or help.

We advise that even as the archery student meditate on the fulfillment of his or her art, so the psychic development student meditate on seeing hidden intent.

If you do glimpse a purpose in yourself that’s for less than spiritual good, for less than recognizing and honoring your own God-reflecting qualities, please set aside your psychic ambitions. No matter how well developed they are, stop to cleanse your intent through prayerful introspection.

Surround yourself with the golden Light of Christ. Ask it to uplift your mind. Let it.

It’s better to go thirsty than to drink waters stirred up with mud. Let your ego’s ambitions settle awhile. Let your inner vision clear before you take aim again.

Once you’re sure of your mark and desirous of spiritual success, bend your bow & arrow back to the psychic skies…

Once you do:
Your heart will meet its target.

Peace and blessings to you,
Rev. Scott Ufford

Seven Surefire Ways to Know You’re Clairvoyant, Not Crazy

Hot:

By Rev. Scott Ufford
In this peculiar day and age, it feels good to reassure yourself that your growing clairvoyant gifts are real.

More to the point: that you’re probably not nuts.
(I say “probably” because if you get a borderline passing grade, you don’t quiz your teacher over specifics.)

Many brave psychic seekers over the years have asked me how they can be sure about their own sanity amidst amazing paranormal experiences.

To help out, here are 7 controversial but effective points to help you decide whether to teleport yourself into Fort Knox—or into a private stall at the funny farm.

If you’re clairvoyant, not crazy:

1. When you pray for peace, you can feel genuine love encircle the globe but you don’t expect the world to kiss your feet.

2. When you do your best “Sorcerer’s Apprentice” imitation before sleep, you know the floor actually will get mopped & the dishes washed before you wake up—and you’re right.

3. When your angels tell you you’re not crazy, they’re not wearing tinfoil hats.

4. When your teakettle whistles, you don’t spend more than five seconds wondering if it’s really a message you should decipher from the president of Alpha Centauri.

5. When you buy your lottery tickets, you already know you’re going to lose. Or, you know which friends & relatives you’ll probably lose when you win big.

6. When you step seamlessly into an alternate reality, you’re not paranoid about the spy who’s cleverly followed you by walking in front of you for the last twelve blocks.

7. When you find yourself staring at invisible friends under the sofa that even your cat can’t see. Or, when you find yourself jumping at red laser point dots on the wall even after your cat’s turned off the pointer and wandered over to her supper dish. (Whether these mean you’re sane or not, I don’t know. I suggest you ask your cat.)

Seriously my friend, just remember:

Don’t be anxious for strange and mystic experiences. What is real will prove itself, over time. What is false or temporary will crumble.

Don’t be too eager to enthrone or overthrow any person, belief or fantasy. Know you are exploring. Surround yourself with God’s light. Move wisely ahead.

Know that your intent determines much of your life’s content—particularly in the psychic spiritual realms. Seek to be the very best you can for yourself—and for others!

Also, no matter what storms you pass through in life, treasure your deepest sense of truth.

Daylight always comes in time to reveal the right way…

Want to share your unusual experiences or questions? I’m happy to listen.

Happiness and peace to you.
Rev. Scott L. Ufford
