The Haunted House

A haunted house

only works in the dark.

We enter these

tiny human spacesuits

we call our bodies.

Initially they startle so easily,

not knowing what is safe

and what isn’t.

In grown bodies

we enter a haunted house

seeing only the dark,

heightening our cautionary instincts.

It is what we see so suddenly,

the skeleton, the skull, a spider,

popping out at us and quickly back to darkness,

that startles our system so.

If we were to carry

a match, a lit torch

we could see the skull or skeleton

long before hand and

prepare our system

to know it’s truth.

It is only a shadow

on Jung’s cave wall,

and only able to “get us”

through our own fear.

In the darkened room

of our third dimension world,

if we can but light the match within,

the light of faith,

of knowing Creator is within us,

then the haunted house

can no longer terrorize us.

With the light from within

we can focus on the

section of the house

that is our responsibility.

With the light from within,

we can light the way

for others

to see a different view.

With the light within

the house is no longer


It can become heaven,

depending on where we

place our focus,

our attention.
