The "I(ego,id,self,pride)" Must Die for The Life to Be!

And in as much as i can 'see',
That which is of the "I(ego,id,self,pride)" in me,

So it is i yearn, and to Our FATHER cry,
For deliverance from all that is of the "I".

The "I", born of "imag"ination and selfish desire,
As lust, greed, and pride, stoked a consuming fire!

A fire burning out of control, as "I" leads the way,
It's smoke concealing the fleshly mind that leads one astray.

Yet even in the smoke, searing heat, and blindness of 'sight',
TRUTH can pierce that blackness of darkness, revealing "The Light"!

And nothing can hide from "The Light", so "Light" reveals the "I(ego,id,self,pride)",
Allowing one to "see" clearly, and clearly the "I" must die.

Yet to live, yet die, seems an impossible task,
And so we need of "Our FATHER", the impossible to ask.

Help me to "deny (die to "I"{ego,id,self,pride}) myself" FATHER!

And as HE Helps, HE reveals evermore of "The Selfless One".......

The One who testified, "i can do nothing of my own self"! (John 5:19,30; 8:28-29; 7:16; 12:49-50; 14:10,23-24; 17:8,14)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/10/the-messiah-testified-i-can-do-nothing.html

The One Who leads His brethren(naturally male or 'fe'male) on "The Narrow Way" that IS "The Way, The TRUTH, and The Life! (Matthew 7:14, John 14:6)  
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/03/because-of-pagan-catholicism-and-her.html

The One Who IS The Messiah, "The Only Begotten Son of The ONE and ONLY TRUE LIVING GOD(SPIRIT) and FATHER(CREATOR) of ALL"! (Matthew 16:16, John 3:16; 20:17)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2009/08/one-and-only-true-g-d-fathercreator-of.html

The Messiah, "The Beginning of The Creation of Our FATHER and GOD"! "The True Light that enlightens every man born into the world"! (Genesis 1:3, Revelations 3:14, John 1:9)

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2012/08/the-word-of-god-let-there-be-light.html

And as Mahatma Gandhi testified, so i also testify, "i like your christ(*aka: messiah*), but not your christians! Your christians are so unlike your christ"....... And i believe in his latter years Mahatma Gandhi saw "The Light" that IS The Messiah, and then he sought and desired to follow The Messiah on that "Narrow Way" that IS "The Way, The TRUTH, and The Life"....... (John 3:18, Matthew 7:14, John 14:6)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/03/because-of-pagan-catholicism-and-her.html

And needs be i testify that, "of all the men who have received the breath(Spirit, air) of life since i received my first breath in '43, i respect Mahatma Gandhi above all others". The source of such respect being The Spirit of and in the quotes (Link to Mahatma Gandhi Quotesattributed unto to him in his latter years. For in his latter years he experienced a common union(Family) with Spiritual brothers and sisters who "called nothing their own" as they but sought and desired evermore of The Fruit bore in a simple and Spiritual Life! (Acts 2:44; 4:32, Galatians 5:22, Ephesians 5:9)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/04/the-treasures-of-simple-and-spiritual.html

And as The Messiah desired above all else, so also will His brethren(i believe Mahatma Gandhi is a brother) desire above all else: 

"FATHER(CREATOR), not my("I", ego, id, self, pride) will, But THY Will Be Done"....... (Luke 22:42)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/07/father-not-my-will-but-thy-will-be-done.html

The poetic testimony, which i received and bore witness of at the beginning of this post, was begun in the Copper Canyon area of Creel, Chih, Mexico in '93. A time when i sought to live and experience evermore of a simple and Spiritual Life. i departed from Mexico after a 15 month stay, yet i returned in August of '04.  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/05/a-simple-and-spiritual-life.html

Then on 1/26/05 the poetic testimony was completed, and 'completion' is near for each and every soul! (James 4:14)

And Thankfully so for "the poor and needy" "Born Again" son's of "Our FATHER and GOD"! (Psalms 70:5; 72:13,  I Peter 1:23, John 3:3,7; 20:17, I John 3:1-2)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/10/a-born-again-experience_15.html

For we have REALized "I(ego,id,self,pride)" can't! (John 5:19,30; 8:28-29)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/10/the-messiah-testified-i-can-do-nothing.html

"Our FATHER", HE CAN....... (Mark 10:27)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/11/my-prayer-father-help-and-he-does.html

And Thankfully the brethren of The Messiah, those "aliens and pilgrims while on the earth", look forward to that day when we receive that final breath(Spirit, air), and are "Set Free, Free indeed" from our natural, temporal, fleshly bodies! (Hebrews 11:13, I Peter 2:11, John 8:32-36)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/06/are-you-alien-and-pilgrim-while-on-earth.html

Translated, "corruptible to incorruptible" indeed and TRUTH! (I Corinthians 15:53-54)

Thankfully Home, Home at last....... (John 14:2-3)   
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/01/home-home-at-last-john-141-3.html

Forever free from the "I(ego,id,self,pride)" that sought to lead us along that "broad way to destruction and damnation"....... (John 8:32-36, Proverbs 3:5-6, Matthew 7:13, Hebrews 3:12)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2009/07/simply-progress-so-called-is-destroying.html

All Thanks and Praise Be Unto "Our FATHER and GOD"! (John 20:17)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/09/our-father-and-god-john-2017.html

And while there is breath(Spirit, air), there is hope many will "see",
"see" the "I(ego,id,self,pride)" for what it is, and then desire to be set free!

And The SPIRIT that IS Our FATHER and GOD, The Holy, Set Apart, SPIRIT that was in The Messiah and IS in His brethren, can "set you Free, Free indeed"! (John 4:24; 8:32-36)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/10/being-set-free-from-materialism-and.html

For TRUTH IS!       and Miracles do happen.......
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2013/07/miracles-faith-receiving-love-of-truth.html

So Hope IS there would be those who experience The Miracle that is receiving "a love of The TRUTH so that they might be saved" from their own self("I", ego, id, pride)life, for they will 'see' "The Light" that is The Messiah! "The Light" which clearly reveals that The Life is of The SPIRIT(not seen with the natural eye), and most certainly not of the flesh or fleshly mind("I", ego, id, self, pride)(II Thessalonians 2:10-13, Genesis 1:3, John 1:9; 6:63)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2013/05/one-needs-receive-love-of-truth-to-be.html

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2012/08/the-word-of-god-let-there-be-light.html

And TRUTH IS! Each and every breath(Spirit, air) a soul receives should reveal the source of Life.......

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/04/you-that-are-unable-to-do-least-why-do.html

And as Mahatma Gandhi testified, so it is "There is no GOD higher than TRUTH"!

And once again: Unless a soul receives "a love of The TRUTH they can not be saved" from their own self("I", ego, id, pride)life! (II Thessalonians 2:10-13)

Thankfully those souls who have experienced The Miracle that IS receiving "a love of The TRUTH so that they might be saved", and then were "Born Again" of The Holy, Set Apart, SPIRIT! Thankfully we have REALized that liken unto The Messiah, so also "i can do nothing of my own self("I",ego,id,pride)(II Thessalonians 2:10-13, John 3:3, 7; 5:19,30; 8:28-29; 7:16; 12:49-50; 14:10,23-24; 17:8,14, I Peter 1:23)

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/10/the-messiah-testified-i-can-do-nothing.html

So it is we "cry unto Our FATHER and GOD day and night"....... (Luke 18:7, John 20:17)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/09/our-father-and-god-john-2017.html

Evermore sounding and resounding a Declaration of Dependence:
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/04/the-declaration-of-dependence.html

FATHER Help!

HE DID!       and HE does.......
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/09/father-help-and-he-does.html

So Thankfully, "The Peace that surpasses ALL understanding" IS! in spite of the dis-ease(no-peace) that is of this evil world and/or religion's way(except it be The Active Faith as revealed in James 1:27) in this day and age!
(Philippians 4:7, John 14:27; 7:7, I John 2:15-17; 5:19, James 1:27; 4:4)

Yes! And the desire of my heart is no longer the "I(ego,id,self,pride)", but THEE(The Holy, Set Apart, SPIRIT) in me!

ALL Thanks and Praise Be Unto Our FATHER(TRUTH, SPIRIT, CREATOR, GOD, LORD, MASTER, LIGHT, LOVE, LIFE,,,, ALL IN ALL that which IS Truly GOOD)! (John 20:17; 14:28, Mark 10:18)

At this moment in time i Thankfully remain but "an alien and pilgrim while on the earth" (Hebrews 11:13, I Peter 2:11). Yet a return to the simplicity that is rural Mexico would be welcomed! And if i ever receive that which is needful so that i might communicate fluently in spanish, i most certainly would like to return....... However, i REALize that in all things, at all times, it needs be "FATHER, not my will, But THY Will Be Done"! (Luke 22:42, Proverbs 3:5-6)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/06/are-you-alien-and-pilgrim-while-on-earth.html

Was looking for some inspiration for my spiritual walk. Googled "I must die" and your poem came up. I am grateful to see that the Spirit is leading others to this place, but am anxious that I cannot give up this body of death. At times I feel as though I'm being dragged, kicking and screaming. His word and thoughts of Holiness are like a purging fire from which I have no hiding place. I guess that we can only trust that He is able to do that which He has said He will do, but at times I waver and doubt, as I look upon my own wretchedness.
Thanks for your thoughts.
Blessing in His name.

"googled 'I must die'"!

YES!

HalleluYAH!

But to live, yet die, seems an impossible task,
And so we need of "Our Father", the impossible to ask.

Help me to "deny myself(die to "I",ego,id,self,pride)" Father!

Your comment brought a welcomed tear to my eye!

Father Help! and HE does.......

Was hoping you had a blog, and am now hoping that soon Our Father, HE will give you the unction to share that which you have "seen(experienced) and heard(received).

For i would very much like to hear your testimonies.

Peace, in spite of the dis-ease(no-peace) that is of this wicked world and it's systems of religion....... francis
