Land of Plenty

My land is lush and green; a land where crystal rivers flow. Mountains of amethyst majestic in their splendour provide a backdrop for magical magnificence. My land is rich and prosperous; cultivating spiritual harmony, tangible beauty, perfect peace. A richness rare indeed in a world where materialism is now the modern creed. Where is the beauty then? When you look with green and envious eyes what beauty do you see? Avariciously seeking the next material fix? The picture tainted, tarnished, ruined by the ruin of want. The possession of possession. Relentless procession in the earthly repression of the soul. Break free then. Regain clarity, travel with me to the land of plenty; to a landscape lush and green. A spiritual oasis in a desert of misery. Bathe in crystal waters and cleanse your spirit. Become a whole again. Reclaim your soul again, for you arrived here with it, but it was quickly replaced by ego. Fore go the chase for worldly wealth and look within for prosperity for only then will you dwell in magical magnificence.
