to Afterglow For the Soul
By David Stanley Bell
Synopsis: This book is raw, simple,
honest expression, through poetry -
shouted or cried out - my experiences
to share. My hopes and dreams, my love
and fear, my mistakes, my passion, my
path, my tripping over my own feet,
the selling of my soul, my reclaiming
it again, my learning to know, love
and be myself.
In learning to love myself I opened
myself to love others and I discovered
the meaning of living passionately.
"If you want to treat yourself
to a feast of truly inspiring, passionate
poetry mixed with ancient wisdom this
poetry is a must! The author David is
an incredibly talented person in many
different fields but has the loving
humility of the enlightened."
I love the move “The Matrix” because
it is so full of spiritual and philosophical symbols and
metaphors. Morpheus explains to Neo about the “splinter
in his mind” that has brought him to seek the truth.
I think we all have experienced the “splinter,”
the unrest inside that is driving us somewhere but we are
not sure where. The unrest is our soul struggling to be
heard through the noise and distractions of the ego. When
we do “take the red pill” and transition to
awareness from illusion, I think most of us struggle with
the frustration of perceived wasted time and the wishing
that we knew back then what we know now. This is definitely
true in my case. I wish I could have found a book that spoke
plainly to help me understand what was going on inside me
and where I needed to go.
Yes there was higher thought and paths to awareness described
in plenty of "feel good" New Age books and convoluted
riddles in some older texts, but many of these books were
too passive for me or they lacked explanations in the simplest
and basic terms.
I believe what is simple is true. Ego complicates, Spirit
simplifies. Truth and clarity only comes when we put in
the work to discipline our thoughts.
The spiritual path is a sensual one, it is our senses the
speak to us in the language of spirit through the heart.
I seek to bridge the gap between Heaven and Earth for all
of us. This book, Foreplay to Afterglow for the Soul, is
filled with those things I wish I could have read so many
Since I have published my poetry I have learned that others
read my poetry and discovery new aspects of themselves and
life that they never could express or understand before.
I began my journey as an unsure, introverted man with many
questions and few answers, and became a confident, gentle
yet strong, out-going man with a beautiful sense of peace,
learning to experience passion that I never before dreamed
I want any one that reads my words answer the call of their
splinter in their mind, become aware of and live their true
nature, and know the joy I have known.
