the power of thought

Matthew 6:22
22The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light. 23But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!


if therefore your third eye be open your whole body is light 
pure energy gathered from the cosmos is an inherited human right 

but because of the cosmic battle we were disconnected from the father 
and the balance of humanity is on a scale that teeters totters 

if the bread of life is the word of God then show me how to eat 
and if bread is all we have then how can we enjoy the meat?

i know this sounds so fascinating and so very hard to accept 
but our imaginations and our thoughts are often left to neglect 

if men would only love he would see creation at its best 
but the mind is swayed to imprison love in the cavity of his chest

guilt and fear is the venom concocted by other beings 
transferred to the psyche by mans collective feelings 

if we can listen carefully we can hear our inner cries 
the cataclysmic events that induced the turning of the tides 

Lumeria and Atlantis was where human thought was key 
as the balance between their forces brought the world to its knees 

both civilizations were doomed from the beginning to meet their fates 
as the portals of each dimension became a closing gate 

each gate was locked for a reason, specifically we do not know 
but only in our collective consciousness can a picture start to show 

if thoughts are really physical as scientist do suggest 
then how can we not believe if we never put our thoughts to the test?

we live in a multidimensional universe that we have little access to 
but the key to unlocking true potential starts with loving you
