But A Thing Called Time – A Poem

But A Thing Called Time – A Poem

If there were but a thing called time,
I’d stretch it out like a long rope;
I’d thread it through all my past lives,
watch all my human drama on display,
me, me, in many different forms.

If there were but a thing called time,
I’d snatch my childhood, flip it around,
place it somewhere else on the map,
call it love, grace, peace, green,
me, then, in many different ways.

If there were but a thing called time,
I’d hold my love for all of eternity,
reach for him, my cool fingers
warming like wax under his heat,
me, him, in many different beds.

If there were but a thing called time,
I’d grab my daughter, her dimpled
legs and one cheek, squeeze until
nothing but love oozed, squeeze,
me, her, in many different smiles.

If there were but a thing called time,
I’d grab my sisters, my mother,
my best friend, freeze framing us
in a filter of laughter, warmth, and delight,
me, us, in many different lens.

If there were but a thing called time,
I’d resurrect my grandparents from the dead,
for one final cuddle, cookie, squish of
soft skin; then I’d bury them again,
me, them, in many different embraces.

If there were but a thing called time,
I’d stretch it out like a long rope;
I’d thread it through all of my life experiences,
watch all my human drama on display,
me, me, making many different choices.

I’d follow those threads, see where they lead,
time not slinking away under locked doors;
time standing still at my mercy, at my periphery;
me, me, in many different forms;
me, me, in all my multiplicity.

About This Poem

I find it hard to live in linear time; it’s not the mystical life. Yet, like everyone else, I’m bound by it. Every day I lose something I want to hold on to. Every day I gain something I want to hold on to. But the spiritual journey is one of acceptance and surrender. It’s about giving up the need for linear time and falling into the arms of cosmic time.

It’s important not to confuse metaphysical skill with spirituality. Not all people that display strong psychic, healing, or magical abilities have your best interests at heart.

Belinda Davidson, Modern Mystic

Dear Friend, You are deeply loved, more deeply than you know. The entire fabric of the Universe is made up of love, and you are a tiny thread in that fabric of the Universe. You are love. Breathe in deep, and feel the fullness of love all around you.

I’m bilingual. English is my native tongue, and I also speak German. I didn’t learn German until I was an adult.

Belinda Davidson, I Love Feng Shui

I have a new love. Feng Shui. And I have a new mentor. Her name is Grace Niu. She’s a Feng Shui consultant, intuitive, and graduate of School of the Modern Mystic®. I met Grace in-person years ago at an event I gave in Melbourne.

Life has served me some severe blows in the last two years. I’ve experienced deep loss and pain, that at times, makes me feel like I don’t want to take another…

Yesterday I gave an impromptu Facebook Live.It was in response to something I posted a few days ago, where I talked about living with a neurological condition, and the trauma of being in and out of emergency last year with massive migraines, seizures, and vertigo attacks.

Belinda Davidson, How to Not Get Dragged Down By Others

I’m sure you’ve had the experience. You’re talking to someone and suddenly you feel strange. It doesn’t happen right away—somewhere about 15 - 20 minutes into the conversation. An odd spacey feeling creeps over you. The person keeps talking. You’re listening, nodding, agreeing. All the while, the odd feeling grows. You’re feeling more and more drained. Flat, too.

Belinda Davidson, You Spoke. I Listened. And This is What I Created for You

Sometime last year, I asked people subscribed to my newsletter how I can better serve them. I asked them to fill out a questionnaire, telling me about their stresses, struggles, challenges, as well as deepest wishes and desires. 1,202 people filled out the questionnaire. I read each and every one of the responses, multiple times. Being helpful and of service to you is important to me.

Belinda Davidson, Be Blessed. Not Stressed

It doesn’t matter how much you “get done” or achieve. If it isn’t coming from high vibration and a mindful state, you aren’t attributing anything of true substance to the world.

Struggling to stay focused when you’re meditating? Can’t get through a whole chakra cleanse? Can’t stop the monkey mind? Or perhaps you want to go deeper into each one of your chakras and feel and experience the power and magic of your amazing energy field and energy anatomy?

Belinda Davidson, This Is True Healing

I got a distressed call from a client some days back. Her friend had had a session with a kinesiologist, and the kinesiologist had removed an “entity” from her energy field. “My friend’s a mess,” my client told me. “The session was five days ago, but she’s still sick, shaky, and out of it. The experience was really scary. My friend felt like she was being pushed out of her body, and the kinesiologist was thrown across the room.”

Belinda Davidson, Beyonce Healed Me

I’m not plugged into mainstream media and music. I don’t know about pop stars, pop music, and all of that. Occasionally I’II hear something, because I have a nine-year-old daughter, but mostly I’m uninterested. Also because I don’t care for hyper-sexualised music videos of young, half-naked women writhing about with pink lipgloss giving me deer eyes.
