The door to infinity

The door to infinity

If perceptions doors were cleansed
In each soul there would be
A different outlook on their lives
They’d see infinity
And then the world would be at peace
The wars could not occur
Cause love, sweet love would change the world
In each heart it would stir.

All troubles in this big wide world
Are caused by the fear of life
If one would look so deep within
There’d be an end to strife
For strife it all be caused by fear
That’s how it comes about
Yet when one sees just who they are
Then gone would be all doubt.

It merely takes a look within
For I have found this out
I see my life so clearly now
I know what I’m about
For I did take that look within
A good few years ago
And every day that passes by
My perception it does grow.

For Giorgio's Quotes contest. quote; If the doors of perception were cleansed, everything would appear to man as it is-Infinite.

    Hi Peter, Now, this is a write my Friend. Infinity, once i thought I saw infinity stretching out before me. I hadn't even started my life so i didn't want it. I know what I have to expect. Every word you put on the page has something to say Peter and you always say it well. No flowers, no graces, you just tell it as you feel it and I Love it. Your right my Friend, so much of the suffering in our world is all down to fear. You and Vera both take care. Catch you later. Your Friend....MIKE.

    Thank you Michael. Infinitely is just the closing of your eyes and looking at the real you, the one who is behind all the thoughts emotions and all the things you have always thought of as you. You are infinity, but you have to find it for yourself. By what you tell me you have already had glimpses of it. Thanks for your comments, my good friend...and a happy holiday season to you...peter
