I knew nothing about Ilchi Lee's marvelous insight and outstandingly beautiful poetry until I downloaded this book. Apart from the poems themselves which bring a depth of mind and peace to your soul, the whole production is set to a superbly chosen musical background, and for the price is an outstanding buy. I intend to send this jewel of an audio book to as many of my friends as I can afford. The poems are original, and wonderfully spiritually strengthening, as well as being soothing and peaceful.
To me all the poems were wonderful; but the one I particularly liked was untitled.
I have transcribed it. Here it is:
* * * * * * * * * *
I know you;
Do not cringe so!/Now get up and run.You can do it.
One single failure is not your all./Cast your dreams with all your might.
Do not cower so...The sadness you hold inside is no big deal.
~ Water under the bridge ~
Open your heart wide/And show me your truth.
Your infinite possibilities and dreams./Showing the real you,/
Whom I see.
Do not shrivel so;/For I do not care for it/.If you lack a dream,
Let me be your dream./
I know you./You hold inside vast possibilities and dreams,/
And limitless love./ You can do it./You have warmth in your heart./
I am your soul./ I am your soul.
* * * * * * * * * *
As I said above, the poem that I felt most inspired by was this untitled one:
"I am your soul." if you like....but ALL the poems are beautiful.
Absolutely. It is wonderful for one sitting. I have listened to all these poems at least ten to 15 times. I listen to them almost every day. They are so marvelously rich, deep and calm.
I believe that these poems reflects basic beliefs of the Eastern understanding of a holistic universe. That is, that life is a journey which culminates in becoming one again with the One, and holds the understanding of new life in reincarnation.
As a Christian, I believe that the divine has a ‘personal’ element and is exemplified in Jesus Christ of Nazareth. Therefore, in some way, there is to be a personal resurrection, as opposed to a reincarnation.
But I also believe that these two beliefs, at a deeper level, which I do not fully understand, do not contradict one another. To my mind, as a Christian, the beauty of the Creation in its scientific, cosmological sense as Illchi Lee sees it, complements the deep mystical understanding of Jesus Christ and His teachings.
However, to Christians who understand their beliefs in strict fundamentalist ways - and that they are exclusive - these poems may not be so joyful as I personally feel them to be.
