Jahanam Awaits You

Just as you believe you have ascended to the plane of true insight, your eyes are opened wide

All around you here you see aspects and facets of yourself, the existence of which for years you have denied

Having got this far, let us present you with your choices, including those of turning back or following through

Any decision you make is to take into account something precious you own – free will, and in that my friend, lies an important clue

Nobody will interfere with what you do, or guide you as to which path you should follow

Any word or deed originating from you, will either be taken up by the light or absorbed to become shadow

Many have gone before you, and we have no doubt there will be many more whose time will come

All believing as humans they have the monopoly on traits they see as valuable, including those of compassion and wisdom

Well, here in Janaham, us natives know otherwise – we see the effects of the wars caused by man, and the fall out which then ensues

Actions which could be so different to bring about change, but sadly, instead are twisted and distorted with the intent being only of abuse

I hope your visit will bring about change, both in you and in how you affect the world around you on your return

Telling your kith and kin that although they may come to believe they know everything, there is in fact so much they have yet to learn

Some day change across the landscape will be permanent, but time will need to pass before that becomes the norm

Yesterday will be but just a memory, with the heartache and guilt being washed away by the destructive but cleansing storm

Only you can take that message back, so a great weight of responsibility may be your destined cross to bear

Until such time you do return please enjoy your stay with us, and give of yourself to our guiding love and care
