    David A. Ritchie
    Upon realising that my entire understanding of existence was based on somebody else’s opinion, I began to question everything I had been taught and set out on a journey to discover my own truth and ultimately reclaim my own power. A divinely inspired collection of poetry, ‘The Human Temple’ is an expression of my faith and understanding and a guide to help you to seek your own truth with an open heart and mind…

    book excerpt

    Verse 1

    No church or cult, do I ask you to join
    I need not your things, nor require your coin
    It is only your attention, I ask as a toll
    My only intention, to show you your soul

    Verse 2

    For always we banter, the word about
    Unaware of the source, we dread the doubt
    At first it was sacred and rarely used
    Now it is common and often abused

    Verse 3

    With reckless abandon, we confess admiration
    We scoff at the effort, of art’s imitation
    This thing then that, claim pieces of heart
    The hole they don't fill, will tear you apart

    Verse 4

    To waste it on things, is a loss undeserved
    To life you must give, your love unreserved
    From smallest to largest, a heart it still beats
    To hold and adore, is the greatest of feats

    Verse 5

    All of us can, yet so few of us do
    The courage it takes, to decide to be you
    The only true sadness, is wasted affection
    Follow your heart, it knows the direction

    Verse 6

    Material wants, without fail dim your sight
    Have faith in your soul and the power of light
    Take what you need and seek nothing more
    For though you have things, your heart will be poor

    Verse 7

    Of joyful tidings, do I speak
    I know not the hour, the day or the week
    The end of oppression, is now within sight
    If we abandon our hate and in faith reunite

    Verse 8

    It is only love, that presides from above
    The Spirit, The Father, The Mother, The Son
    Within every heart, lies a corner that speaks
    It whispers that love, is all that it seeks

    Verse 9

    Misled from birth, we forget how to hear
    We lose years, to find it was always near
    Not knowing for what, we strive and we yearn
    Without it we stumble, each way that we turn

    Verse 10

    Your heart knows dimensions, as yet undiscovered
    Within them wait those, who call you beloved
    You are never alone, despite all you were told
    They walk your whole life and answers they hold

    Verse 11

    Unaware of their presence, you confuse the task
    They exist only to guide, but first you must ask
    Love is their mantra and forever they fight
    To show you the truth, the love and the light

    Verse 12

    It is love that inspires, an enlightened soul
    To see through the lies and carry no hole
    To walk down a road, that is yet to be walked
    To utter the words, that are yet to be talked

    Verse 13

    In a dream of reality, it's so hard to wake
    Great care and great patience, one must take
    Always it seems, the lie has been spoken
    The time it has come, for the spell to be broken

    Verse 14

    It is within your power, to forgive and forget
    The hurts, the lies, the hate, the regret
    In confusion we fly, just like moths to a flame
    As though we have learned, to welcome the pain

    Verse 15

    Choose to let go, of the hate in your heart
    It is only your burden and keeps you apart
    In all of its forms, you are given to choose
    To give without want, leaves you nothing to lose
