The Akashic Records

There’s a mystical place where records are kept

since time immemorial and eternally on.

Where every word that’s been uttered

and every thought that’s gone out and all deeds

that have been acted are being tallied and heeded.

It exists in a realm beyond our senses,

but the ancient ones who know and speak of this place

have passed on to us this astonishing lore.

It’s a library in the ethers for all perception and knowledge

from since and before the beginning of all matter.

It’s the universal mind that houses these accounts

holding and storing them for time ever after.

Some say it can be accessed through a gateway within

if we but resource it through our subconscious therein.

And when the time comes that we slip from these shells,

entry will be had to review our life’s course

and will assist with the choosing of our subsequent return.

It’s said that they’re used to place judgment upon us

when we leave this place called Earth behind us.

But the judgment is used for our benefit and advantage

to propel us onward towards our inner transcendence.

    I read this with my mouth open. It is something to read and read and read again. Not only due to my small brain, but also that deep meaning.

    The last lines about death(I think) being just a way to attain a higher level of existence is pure Buddha…skinny or tubby.

    Very well done. I will read again. I feel on a higher plain of existence, already

    loved it—Jaye xoxoxoxo

    PS: Different from anything else before…pure talent


    • Hahaha! I know you’re being serious here, Jaye, but you are very comical at times (skinny or tubby)–and the reference to your small brain. You don’t have a small brain!!

      Yes, there is a deep meaning here–see your brain saw that just fine. :)

      So glad you loved it, Jaye–that made me happy.

      Gayle xoxo


  3. this is fantastic gayle. loved the expertise with which you wrote this piece. it truly is brilliant.


  4. And this could be quite scary, if it was not for your final lines “But the judgment is used for our benefit and advantage to propel us onward towards our inner transcendence.”

    Thank goodness for that – otherwise I would be in trouble :D

    An amazing poem, by the way!!!

    Chloe xx


    • Yes, it could be quite scary–I think we’d all be in trouble! :)

      Thanks, Chloe–I’m glad you liked it.


  5. This piece is beautifully written. I really really love it. It makes me think a science fiction story could be written from it. (oh my brain will be judged on making science fiction out of reality and dreams). Just <3


    • Your kind comment makes me very happy, Meg. Thank you so very much.

      Hey, maybe it would make for a good SciFi story–why not. xoxo


  6. Wondeful. deep with meaning. a lot can be said about “inner transcendance”


  7. A fascinating poem. Love the whole description. It almost reminds me of Death’s library in the Discworld series, the way that everyone’s life is recorded there. Really fun and intresting, greatly enjoyed.
    The Lonely Recluse.


    • Thanks, TLR. I’m not familiar with what you are referring to here but there is a basis of “truth” to what I have written–depending on whether or not you believe or not.

      So glad you liked this.


  8. Thought provoking piece. It brought to light many concepts that I am familiar with but you put in in such a different light. Thank you!


  9. This is very enjoyable !
    Happy Rally !


  10. Interesting metaphysical exploration. Certainly thought provoking!


  11. a spiritual read…I liked the flow. Have fun at the rally!

    Akashic records, I wish I could access them,
    Nice poem, touch of spirituality.
    It is so fascinating, the tale of cosmos.


    • Maybe we both will be able to someday–I’m fascinated too! Thanks so much for your nice comment and visit. xoxo


  13. I first read about this in the 60s when I read Edgar Casey and have been intrigued by it since. There’s a certain poetry to the idea of it and so I find it delightful that you’ve actually written a poem. Lovely and graceful. :-)


    • I read some of Edgar Cayce too back in the early 70s–perhaps that’s when I first became aware of this and like you had remained intrigued ever since.

      Thank you for sharing your awareness of this, Jamie–and happy you enjoyed my writing. :)


  14. there are always two sides of stories,

    each one has a reason,
    lovely information and conclusions…

    Happy Rally.


  15. Very captivating story =)


  16. Three sadhus for that poem! A walk through Universal mind (Alaya Vijnana?). You chose the right picture – is that where karmic records are deposide?


    • Three sadhus? That’s the most I’ve gotten yet! Yes, that’s where karmic records are deposited.

      Thank you, Harry–I appreciate your wonderful comment for me.


  17. Sorry – should read ‘deposited’ – my fingers are weary from gardening.


  18. Gayle..i don’t have enough words these days..but just wanted to say that this piece is amazing…a delight to read and ponder on..thank you a lot.


    • Thank you sincerely, Yelena. Your words were plenty–I appreciate your visit. I’m very happy you like this.


  19. interesting gayle.. i’m loving it.. Here is my rally post, ~ come on idiot, you are for me ~

    ! Happy Sunday !

    Someone is Special


  20. Wow, that was deep and so beautiful!


  21. In a way, its a concept that scary and overwhelming to think about. A very thought-provoking piece, Rose.

    Ms. Queenly


  22. Working, as I do, in a library, I absolutely loved this! You described the concept so well in this that anyone could understand it, and yet, you always have such a music to your writing, too. You do know the rhythms and beats of the enlightened soul well, I have no doubt. Let’s hope that if we DO return, it is by choice as a bodhisattva! :-D


    • Oh, I’m right there with you, if we do come back may it be by choice as a bodhisattva. You speak my language!

      Thanks for a wonderful comment. xoxo
