Still the room, the body and the mind.
All that remains is Energy.
That feeling is you, the real you at this moment.
You are a silent bell ringing out,
Your vibration touching the world.
This feeling is not your clothes, your home, you car……
These things are not you
This feeling is-
The essence of your actions, your thoughts and the way you see the world.
Touch this and know it to be true
Never allow yourself to be confused again.
You can try to hide it
But you cannot stop the silent bell ringing.
Everyone hears it, so do not deny it.
Express yourself fully.
You are already that vibration.
Do not be shy, do not be ashamed.
This is you in your completeness.
Hide none of it.
Explore all of it.
Discover all that you can be and become.
It is the journey of truth.
That is all life is about- listening to your own bell
And know that others have silent bells waiting to be heard.
Honour them, cultivate them and nurture them.
And though sometimes the journey may be hard
It will be fulfilling and you will do much.

I wrote this poem after I heard “All You Need Is Love” by The Beatles. I had listened to the song many times, but this time I heard it. The wisdom of the words echoed across time, the band members’ silent bells vibrating as they performed their beautiful message.
We are all silent bells, no different from “The Fab Four”. They were, after all, working class lads from Liverpool. No different than you or I. They had a voice and were willing to share it with the world. The world is a better place for it.
Please do not doubt that sharing your voice with the world will make it a better place. Find your own way, discover your unique vibration and let your silent chime resonate out across the world.
The world is in dire need of people who are willing to share of themselves, just as people are in dire need to share themselves with the world. Ring out. It is what you do. It is what you are meant to do. It takes trust, compassion and love. It may scare you- I know. But there is so much you have to offer, and it is too good not to share.
With every chime, you nourish the flame within and make it stronger. Let us create a symphony and build a bridge of sound that connects the world. Let us create an inferno that warms every heart and nurture a world of peace and harmony.
All we need is love……….
