Righteous Surrender

Submission To Existence

My desire is not what I am surrendering.
It’s only the resistance that keeps me unsure
Of what I am surrendering to. There’s some doubt
That I will be happy with the way things turn out.
If I want something, my vibration must be pure.
Not onto petty battles am I meant to cling.

Life has caused me to ask, and I want to believe
What they say about asking. It will manifest
If I know I’ll receive it. The energy of
Being in the receptive mode is far above
That of doubt, lack, and discord. It would suit me best
That a positive outlook I strive to achieve.

Trying too hard, defending myself constantly,
Justifying, and rationalizing will bring
Only much disappointment. If I can let go
Of such things, then much better things I’ll come to know.
To surrender in no way involves torturing.
It’s about my alignment with source energy.

The first manifestation is an emotion.
If it feels good, I’ll welcome it. If it feels bad,
I’ll look elsewhere to find something to focus on.
The conclusion that I will do well is foregone.
My emotional guidance is my best comrade.
To my inner being I give much devotion.

Blessings Of The Universe

Spatial Providence

There is so much wellbeing lined up and ready
To come into your life. All that you have to do
Is be willing to focus in the direction
Of feeling just a bit better. You are the one
Who can change the conditions that you think are true.
Where you are now may not be where you want to be.

So, don’t look so much at where you are. Look instead
To the guidance within you. Crack open the door
Ever so slightly, and you will see evidence
Of wellbeing. It’s trying to make its presence
Known to you. It helps you open the door some more.
Then you have some control over what lies ahead.

Pick your battles wisely, or perhaps better yet,
Forget them all because each will slam the door shut.
It comes down to vibration. If you’re negative,
Then the universe and all that it has to give
You block off. You continue in the same old rut.
Your righteous indignation is not an asset.

We’re all in this together. You are not alone.
You’re not trying to prove a thing to anyone.
Feel the power of who you are for one moment.
It’s not difficult, and through your conscious intent,
You become not the problem but the solution,
And the infinite blessings unto you are shown.

You Are Offered A Signal

The Voice Of Inner Guidance

Strong and wise is my guidance system. This I know
Without question, but sometimes I feel that I may
Not be listening or translating properly
What it tells me. My fear and intent don’t agree.
The appearance is that I don’t know how to pray.
I know that this mindset is why progress is slow.

More statements of what I want is indicated,
And less of what I don’t want. I want to be sure
That I can hear the messages coming to me
From the provident, infinite forces that be.
It’s important that my own vibration be pure.
Only then will I get what is long awaited.

I can let the hearing be a separate thing
From the wanting and tuning. From my perspective
Of not having, I will not see things manifest.
How I feel in the having of it, if expressed
To the universe, is extremely effective
In the spiritual process of attracting.

The more walks that I take in places that feel good,
The more I will hear. Moments of preparation
Are those such as laughing, dancing, and playing more.
I can never go wrong doing things I adore.
Only when I am in a state of elation
Can I ditch the odd habit of knocking on wood.

You Came To Love

Heavenly Hearted Earth

You came here to love one another and to be
In alignment with nature. You came to have fun
On your fabulous journey through life. You came here
To learn all about love – the opposite of fear.
You are love, so the learning that needs to be done
Is of yourself which is in others what you see.

It’s your nature to love – even the rotten one
Who always manages to get on your bad side.
That one is a big advantage to your growing.
Are you moved to focus on your inner knowing
When you can’t love the bastard despite having tried?
You can do nothing with the momentum begun.

It’s not that you are wrong about the awfulness
Of this person. It’s that you’re misunderstanding
Their value to you in helping you to decide
How you want things. In this way, you are not denied
The thoughts that lead to your consciousness expanding.
Negative feelings you do not want to express.

You came here to love. You did not come to surround
Yourself with loving people. You knew there would be
People who make it difficult. These are the ones,
Who through your attention to them, will offer tons
Of resistance, but you can respond lovingly.
Where you least may expect love is where it is found.

A Perfect Relationship

True Love

You are love. You intend love. It is always there
Within and throughout you. Everywhere that you go
Love is present. The people you know are loving
According to the vibration you’re offering.
Love attracts love. Every act of love that you show
Generates more. Of this you are fully aware.

How do you find your lover – someone who, like you,
Is of love in the same way? Ask differently.
Why do you want someone to love? How does it feel?
Is the feeling of your being in love ideal?
Your lover isn’t lost, although, apparently,
You have yet to find fulfillment. What can you do?

Concentrate on the feeling, and stay focused there.
What does being in love feel like? It feels damned good!
It feels like a homecoming. It’s security.
It is one of wellbeing. It makes one happy.
You do know what it feels like. It’s well understood.
It’s a feeling that healthy people want to share.

It’s like appreciation – the feeling of ease
That is known when the heart meets up with the divine
And all things come together for you and someone
Who is special. The work you have already done
Is vibrational. Details will work out just fine.
There is nothing about love that you have to seize.

Line Up With The Love

Open Your Heart

There are too many moving parts, so do not ask
Them to figure it out. Line up with your desire,
And the universe will figure it out for all.
It can handle the big things as well as the small.
The solution it can offer doesn’t require
Anything but acceptance, which is no big task.

Don’t ask them to solve world problems or those right here
In this failing experiment in harmony.
They can’t do it. No one can, but what they can do
Is respond to our particular points of view.
We are the ones creating the way it should be.
To be heard, the message must be perfectly clear.

They can’t scrape dirt together and launch another
Earth into orbit. Our expectation is that
They can do such things, even though we know they can’t.
Is it worthwhile to take to the streets and to chant
What we want from them, as if in mortal combat?
That is not something taught to me by my mother.

Care about how you feel, and then line up with it.
You will watch the world become as you intended.
You don’t need to protest in the streets. Just align
With your version which is always perfectly fine.
All the old farts who are gone are soon to be dead
With your love you can line up for all’s benefit.

Let The Universe Help

Allow Divine Providence

I can’t be disappointed and get what I want.
I cannot even mention the hell I go through.
Telling others about how I feel only brings
About group misery. The lack vibration rings
Throughout my life experience. What can I do
To get rid of the thoughts and the feelings that haunt?

“Universe, bring to me from my place of great need
What I ask for.”
This pathetic way of dealing

With the issue is infested with resistance.
Can I detach completely from my circumstance
By paying more attention to how I’m feeling?
Can I dare to let the universe intercede?

I am being given everything that it takes
To create worlds. My job is to tune into it.
I cannot ask for the help to come to a place
Where it can’t go. I have access to divine grace
Only if I move my vibration and permit
Things to happen accordingly for goodness sakes.

I cannot create outside my vibrational
Offering, over which I have complete control.
Practicing the knowing of it, I may become
Magnetized by the habit. I then beat the drum
Of contented wellbeing as I am made whole.
I trust in forces that are operational.

Perpetual Mantra

The Eternal Ringing

I know that things are always working out for me.
It’s a bold affirmation considering that
My past has caught up with me. I now realize
That I’ve screwed up completely. Does this make me wise?
I cannot listen to my mind’s idle chitchat.
Can I still live my life as I want it to be?

Things often work out for me. Sometimes I’m aware
That they are, and it feels good whenever they do.
I don’t need to focus upon the condition.
All I need is to give myself full permission
To be more worthy of the mantra being true.
It’s a statement that any person can declare.

Things are always working out for me. It is fact.
I’m beginning to trust in my own wellbeing.
I’m not worthy of feeling unworthy of it.
All that is created is for my benefit,
And my inner being is never agreeing
With my self-loathing. That’s not part of my contract.

I can help things to work out by my consciously
Accepting and repeating what has been made clear.
I can smooth out the flow of what’s coming by my
Remembering that I can completely rely
On the mantra perpetual. A new frontier
Of enlightenment is available to me.

The Depths Of Who You Are

The Naked Self

Every life form is an expression of the One
Timeless and formless One life. Beyond anything
That’s subject to destruction, it’s not opposite
Of what’s called life. It’s good to remember that it
Is the opposite of birth. Death is depressing
From the surface perspective where all life is done.

Births and deaths apply to the forms that appear on
The surface of reality. Its perspective
Is dreadful, but from knowing that all life is One,
One will find that one’s death is not something to shun.
Timelessness is the realm of the most subjective
Part of you. It’s the self that will never be gone.

The transcendent dimension you have access to.
There you will realize that you are much more than
You appear to be on the surface of it all.
The physical part of you is limited and small.
From the deathless dimension you know that you can
Know that part of you that is eternal and true.

All of life is a temporary expression
On the surface of being. With deep compassion
We behold all the madness perpetrated by
Those who don’t know who they are. We cannot deny
The harshness of reality. In everyone
Is the spark of divinity ever begun.

Embodying Stillness

Meditation By The Sea

If you go to visit a Zen monastery,
Where they call meditation ‘sitting,’ one may ask
“How long you have been sitting? I’ve been sitting for
A few decades or so.” “Doesn’t you butt get sore?”,

May be one’s response who is not up to the task
Of doing the work that is most necessary.

Sitting in meditation, one is familiar
With a method, but don’t confuse it with the state
You are in while you’re doing it. Meditation
Is a state of pure presence. You can be at one
With the universe, and you do not have to wait
To become more aware of who you really are.

The method is designed to facilitate the
State of consciousness, but at some point every one
Must be dropped so that you can be right in that place
Of immaculate presence. Its welcome embrace
Is available to you through meditation.
Method is simply the way of coming to be.

One evolves to the point where no method at all
Becomes necessary to be in alignment.
If you get too attached to your method, then you
Will defeat your intention. What you may go through
To get there may be subject to some refinement.
It cannot be for you an impossible call.

Transcendence Through Stillness

The Reflection Of Calm

How do I learn to transcend the limited me
…The conditional entity? How do I know
What is silence and stillness? What has this to do
With the person I am and what I’m going through?
What does it mean to be ‘still?’ How can someone grow
Without moving? Can this fettered self be made free?

Like most words, ‘stillness’ is but a starting off place
For describing what can’t be described easily.
Everyone has their own experience of it.
Meditation is the perfect thing to permit
It to happen. What’s called my personality
Is dissolved in the process of receiving grace.

If I haven’t found the stillness, no matter how
Well I do in life, it will turn into something
Unfulfilling, even if the world praises me.
Free from erratic motion I most want to be.
It is the cause of most of human suffering.
The stillness is available to me right now.

I like pleasant conditions and circumstances.
By the same token, bad situations cause me
Much discomfort, but if I can find the stillness
In the moment, I know that I will suffer less
Than I would if I can’t. Stillness I clearly see
As the alternative to my taking chances.

The Most Important Story

A Relaxing Good Read

Once I had mental illness. Perhaps I still do
And don’t know it, but that’s okay. I’m feeling fine.
If I had something physical, I might feel pain.
Would I then have a reason to bitch and complain
About life? It could be that I’m ill by design.
Any excuse for my behavior I’ll cling to.

There’s a kind of arthritis that cripples the mind
And makes of it a battlefield. I remember
Ways that I’ve treated others. I shelter my shame
In my writing. I have but my own self to blame
For the damage. This life has been a disaster
As I now reflect on how to leave it behind.

Positive thoughts evade me when pain is intense.
I can think only thoughts that reflect how I feel
At any given moment. The need to detach
Is apparent. I am a vibrational match
To all that enters my life. My self-made ordeal
Is a foolishly pathetic psychic expense.

My body with its sick mind is different from
The intense emotion that steals my attention.
I can change how I feel much easier than I
Can get rid of the illness. I don’t have to try
To get better. I remain in this dimension
Looking forward to whoever I may become.

Things Fall Into Place

Universal Forces At Work

All the time manifestations happen to you.
Whether it’s a relationship, money, or things,
Like a new car or bigger house, you are aware
Of the feeling of wanting it. You must take care
That your feelings are positive. How you feel brings
Things to you much more quickly than all that you do.

The word manifestation in the truest sense
Is this moment in time. It is the junction where
The focus of you and of who you really are
Is converging. It means you are not very far
From receiving. About your feelings you must care.
Against negative feelings be on the defense.

Every detail of your life is manifested.
The alarm clock, the person behind the counter,
And the place where you live are manifestations.
Those that are driven by passion are the best ones.
You can always find a thought that you would prefer.
In your own wellbeing you must be invested.

Your emotional response to your heart’s desire
Guides you to it… or from it. You are in control
Of your own guidance system. You can’t separate
The manifestation from the feeling. Your state
Of alignment with yourself is the only goal.
From this present moment, the next is made higher.

What Is It To See?

Self-Revelation

Some use the symbolism of relationship
Wherein God is expressing through a brilliant light.
Underneath all the forms we perceive, the divine
Is kept from direct vision unless we align
With its presence. The notion implies inner sight.
Going into the bright light is a sacred trip.

You are looking right at it, and in doing so,
You are it. The experience is exactly
The same as pure divinity. We’re pretending
Not to know this for the fear of our offending
The Almighty. We want to see desperately
Evidence of the presence that seems hard to know.

The vision of the paper cup is just the same
As the brilliant light of the cosmos. It’s unseen
Because all the points of divine light are tiny.
We’re amazed by the many things there are to see.
We can know that within God there’s no in-between.
A rose is still a rose by any other name.

The source of all light is in the eyes. If there were
No eyes in the world, then there would be no sunlight.
We evoke light from being. Our consciousness state
In this moment is one we can appreciate.
It is something like heaven to be given sight.
The spirit that you are is obliged to concur.

Deeper Dimensions Of Stillness

Journey Into The Soul

The mind is a computer. If you leave it on
All the time, it will get hot and not perform well.
If it’s turned off completely and given some rest,
Then throughout its lifetime it will function its best.
Your are the only one who is able to tell
If its wellbeing is a conclusion foregone.

To get free of the thinking mind is to transcend
The voice in the head that never stops its chatter.
It’s conditional thinking to which you’re a slave.
It makes all the difference in how you behave
And what in life to you does most truly matter.
It is difficult for the mind to be your friend.

There’s another dimension that is not of mind
But of essence. The stillness that one may behold
In the silence has been taught for thousands of years.
It is already present, although it appears
That it is being overlooked. What is pure gold
Is ignored. It is the way this world is designed.

It’s like the fish may be tempted to not perceive
The presence of the water and spend its whole life
Saying, “I have been told there’s an aqueous force
That surrounds and contains us.”
We cannot endorse

This nonsensical outlook which can lead to strife.
Stillness is not something that one has to achieve.

What Is The Vortex

A Description Of Heaven

When “The Vortex” is spoken of, what comes to mind?
In spiritual circles it has a meaning
Which is somewhat confusing to those who are new.
It is the expanded version of what is you.
It is accessed exclusively by your cleaning
Up your vibration, then connection you will find.

“The Vortex” is the same as your inner being
Which, again, is the expanded version of you.
Your body is its focal point while you are here.
It may seem that your inner being is not near
Your Vortex, but in fact, this can never be true.
The sameness of the two is to you worth seeing.

It’s because ‘things’ are put there that you most desire
That the feeling of separateness can exist.
You’ve accumulated many things. You want more.
Your Vortex is filled up with things that you adore,
But they’re purely vibration. So try to resist
Thinking of Your Vortex as a thing to acquire.

You are just a current perceiver and player
In this world. You’re not the owner of anything.
You do not own your diamonds any more than you
Own the rainbow. You are but the entity who
Is experiencing. Your own Vortex will bring
About clarity. It is your truth conveyor.

Your Path Finds You

The Journey Prescribed

You do not find the path. Instead, the path finds you.
It is one that is inspired – not motivated.
In a general place is where you want to be.
You’ll find things happening automatically.
What has been planned for you is your journey ahead.
You do not need to figure out what you must do.

Sniffing out the trail you like, and following it
Is a pleasure. You like the freedom to have fun,
Great ideas, and being of value to those
In your life. You are one of the wise ones who knows
The feeling of getting divine inspiration.
To the path that has chosen you, you must submit.

You can highlight within you what matters to you.
Follow that path wherever it leads you, and be
At one with it. Find within it satisfaction.
Know the vibrational work that has to be done
So that your path remains steady naturally.
Get rid of your old thoughts to make room for the new.

All the things that we do and the people we meet
Are put on our paths. Each of us is a teacher
To all others. When willing to pay attention
To the lessons provided us, we have begun
To accept being chosen. It is a feature
Of this earth school that never becomes obsolete.

Being In Nature

Getting Close To The Earth

“Seek out a quiet place in the forest,” said he
Who was called the Buddha thousands of years ago.
He practiced meditation, and that’s what he taught.
He was available to anyone who sought
Spiritual enlightenment. He was also
Big on nature. He loved it most passionately.

In nature, there is ‘stillness’ that’s different from
That which is artificial and caused by the lack
Of the clamor incessant. This kind one can hear.
When you listen to nature with an acute ear,
The stillness is apparent. You peek through a crack
In eternity. Magnificent insights come.

Nature teaches connection. It has much to do
With the way we develop spiritually.
Nature relaxes as well as energizes.
When alone or with others it crystalizes
Consciousness into oneness. It’s easy to be
Just oneself without pretense. God bless the guru!

Refrain as much as possible from thinking while
You’re in nature. Just be the awareness behind
Your acute sense perceptions. Be fully at one
With all that you experience. You have begun
To connect to the heart and detach from the mind.
Nothing in the woods can put a cramp in your style.

Your Only Work

Think Only Good Thoughts

Your work is to believe what you want. That is all.
You can be a cooperative component
With your very own powerful and important
Thoughts and feelings. You can let the universe grant
You its blessings. You can by your conscious intent
Reduce negative momentum down to a crawl.

Stop the split energy with the lame excuses
That hold you where you are. Your awareness can be
On the things that uplift you. Keep your spirits high.
Don’t be tempted to talk about the reasons why
You are where you are to others incessantly.
Only more of the same is what that produces.

Have fun watching things come into place and getting
The fullness of it happening. The only thing
That prevents it is looking at how things are now.
It’s the opposite of what you want. You allow
It to happen by not constantly focusing
On what is. It is potentially upsetting.

Enjoy the breath of fresh air that new desire brings.
Resist the temptation to face reality.
Lean in the direction of that which you prefer.
Don’t let what is occurring in your life deter
You from your dreams, and know that what’s coming will be
Evidence of the positive nature of things.

Allowing Divine Intervention

Receiving Grace

Still believing in struggle, most human beings
Don’t feel like they are paying enough of a price.
No one plays their way through life and achieves success.
We must work long and hard for it, that is unless
We are fortunate where the bird of paradise
Makes its way into our lives and brings us nice things.

This is true in the real world because this mindset
Has evolved over eons where there’s a finite
Economic pie that all are wanting to share.
We have to make things happen. We seem not aware
That we are of vibration, and all is alright.
This is how the world functions much to our regret.

There’s an infinite ‘amount’ of economy.
To be shared among everyone. Those who believe
That there’s only so much wealth do not hear the call
Of their spirit. Their perspective is rather small.
Effort is not needed in order to receive
If we get ourselves to thinking differently.

The power of the universe is within you.
It creates worlds. It can manifest anything.
One cannot have it both ways. One has to decide
For oneself which is better. Let your spirit guide
You to what feels in your life to be fulfilling.
Know in your heart the best thing that you ought to do.

The Rock

The Apparently Unmovable

There is only one Rock. You make think there are more,
And there are, but the main Rock is simply called God.
Having to use the ‘he’ word is quite a disgrace
For divinity. The Rock we cannot replace
With a human description. I do find it odd
That inadequate language is what is called for.

The Rock is not a hard place. It is consciousness.
It is perfect for all its ways are of justice.
It is stable and steady yet without substance.
It is provident, and we are given the chance
To exist constantly in a pure state of bliss.
Nothing but love and kindness does this force express.

It is without iniquity since it is not
Of the physical, but faithfulness to the laws
Of existence created it promises us.
Many ways of relating to it we discuss.
We are last to discover what is the First Cause.
We believe that we’re not supposed to know a lot.

There is no Rock but the Rock that we call divine.
Why we must understand it remains also why
We are here in the first place. Through our worshiping
The potential for world peace is always growing.
When you’re next to the hard place, The Rock don’t deny.
It is possible that things will turn out just fine.

The Most Selfish Thing

Psychic Hygiene

“We’ll become lovers of ourselves in the last days.”
Are they here now? Are we witnessing our demise?
The most popular photograph is the selfie.
Is it easy to find human nature to be
Egocentric? The answer comes as no surprise.
Yes it is. Is this attitude worthy of praise?

It’s a thing done in innocence in most cases.
Giving of oneself is the general intent.
But the cumulative vibration is such that
We pay much less attention to those who are at
A bad point in their lives and who suffer torment.
Concern is only with what the heart embraces.

Our society forces success down our throats.
We will do what we can to be influential.
We all want to be followed. We all want to lead.
In the process many become fettered in greed.
Our comparisons with others is essential
To our happiness. The attention floats our boats.

At some point one will ask oneself, “Where is my soul?
Is it where it belongs? Do I have a kind heart?
Do I need to take credit for all that I do?
Do I want to see others achieve success too?
When it comes to my happiness, where does it start?”

Giving of oneself is the spiritual goal.

You Get To Decide

What You Create Is Truly Your Own

While it does feel like things are happening to you,
That is not the case. All is being invited
Often unconsciously by you. Your attention
To things in general within you dimension
Generates a vibration. When you’re excited
About life then your dreams are likely to come true.

You are the sole inviter of all that occurs
In your life. A rampage of selective sifting
Where you find things about life to appreciate
Is the way for you to successfully create
A vibration that is wholesome and uplifting.
You attract only the things that your heart prefers.

You can orient yourself to looking for those
Things that are already positive. Write them down
And review and update them. It will magnetize
You vibration, and then you will capitalize
On life’s blessings and rarely be seen with a frown.
The symphony of your life you get to compose.

Set the tone. Focus only on that which you know
To be pleasing. A rampage of finding error
And of fixing what’s wrong brings about discontent
With what you’re attracting in the moment present.
Ultimately you must know that you’re the barer
Of your dreams or your constantly living in woe.

The Power Of Now

Your Eternal Point Of Attraction

No matter where you’re standing, if it’s not pleasing
To you, just remind yourself that it isn’t done.
And then take the emotional journey and show
Yourself how you can put ease along with gusto
In your experience. Your point of attraction
Is Right Now. It’s the only moment worth seizing.

Everything is actualizing around you
In this moment – not yesterday or tomorrow.
All responds to your vibrational output Now.
You attract things to you, but you may not know how
To stay focused on things that don’t bring you sorrow.
Happiness is the state that makes wishes come true.

All of your power is Now. Think about what you’re
Doing to tomorrow when you’re feeling good Now.
You affect the day after and months down the line.
You emit a vibration that will by design
Bring good manifestations, but you must allow
Yourself to believe that life is an adventure.

Tomorrow never comes because when it gets here
It’s today. The next moment can never exist.
It is always the present. Appreciation
For this moment is most clearly the solution
To all problems. The challenge is less to resist
Living outside the present where all does appear.

Break The Cycle

Stop The Madness

The more things that are asked for the more you are called
By your inner self to move in the direction
Of your wishes. You also become more aware
Of things in the way that you don’t want to be there.
The resistance life offers is by selection.
When it is minimized you will be more enthralled.

You’re connected to your inner being always.
You feel much satisfaction when the link is strong.
When it’s weak, you feel hopeless. You are in control
Of the thoughts and emotions that can make you whole.
In that place of alignment is where you belong.
Sensitive you are to what your true self conveys.

You can stay off the subject that’s not letting you
Be receptive to inspiration and guidance.
Close the gap between your true self and your ego.
Break the evil spell that is not letting you grow.
You achieve your contentment not by happenstance.
Your dissatisfaction with life you can get through.

“Isn’t that a beautiful tree? And isn’t that
A beautiful bird? This meal is so delicious.
Isn’t this a nice day? Look at that butterfly!”

This winning attitude makes the spirit soar high.
Take notice of the things you’re willing to discuss.
It is okay to be okay with where you’re at.

The Meaning Of Life

The Purpose Of Existence

What’s the meaning of life? Is it too much to ask?
What’s the meaning of ‘meaning’ without getting deep
Into confusing language? To ‘mean’ is to be
Of intent to convey. What does life mean to me?
Have I spent too much of it acting while asleep?
Finding right answers to these questions is my task.

Meaning means, “What’s the purpose or reason?” It means,
“What’s the existential basis and the intent?”
The whole purpose of life is joy, and expansion
Is the result. It’s not beyond comprehension.
Freedom is the basis of life. Being content
In my here and now dominates all my routines.

More exposure to more opportunity to
Have more feelings my life offers me. The meaning
Of life is life. The thrill of finding alignment
With my dreams is the source of better refinement
Of my purpose. Indeed, I am living leaning.
Breathing and being open is easy to do.

To feel life pour through me is exhilarating.
Sometimes I’m not right on it. It’s really okay.
I can work my way to it, and that is for me
A miraculous mantra. It helps me to be
More fulfilled in the journey that is underway.
Life’s meaning has to do with what I’m creating.

No Patience

Time Is A Cyclic Pleasure

To attempt the impossible is to pretend
To be happy with waiting. I don’t need a break,
But what I want to happen does. Why is this so?
Hypnotized by the spinning icon, I can’t know
Anything but sheer boredom. My staying awake
Is a struggle. What does my spirit recommend?

My spirit isn’t patient. I know for a fact
That it is always focused on things that feel good.
It has the full advantage of seeing where I
Want to be, and its guidance I cannot deny.
Intervals between good things can be understood
To be filled with excitement. This I can attract.

Patience means looking at something that I clearly
Do not want and then forcing myself to feel fine.
It is always distressful especially when
I recall that I will do it ever again
Unless with my true spirit I choose to align.
It’s the only way I can become patience free.

It takes no patience at all when I’m focusing
On good feeling things. If I can make that my goal,
Situations of boredom and waiting around
Will decrease. A new sense of joy I will have found.
All the way through alignment, myself is made whole.
My growth is the only thing that I’m awaiting.

Magic Mantra

Earth Becomes Heaven

I Am Satisfied and that’s the way I should be
Just because I am conscious. I’m fully aware
That I’m not here to fix a world that is broken.
It is not. Why this truth does remain unspoken
Is a mystery I need not the wide world share.
If I said I was lying would you believe me?

I Am Satisfied with what has not yet occurred.
I have not the resistance that I had before
When I was tripping over what’s not happening.
There is nothing more harmful to my wellbeing
Than to say there are no avenues to explore.
Thinking that things are hopeless is simply absurd.

I’d been pushing the concrete noodle way too long.
It has not brought me happiness but misery.
I cannot make things happen. I cannot dictate
To the universe what I want it to create
So that I can be made eternally happy.
I’m surprised now by how I had things so damned wrong.

I can’t turn the world right side up. I can only
Be a part of all that is, and that is content
With all that is. I trust, stay in tune, and allow
The guidance of discovery to show me how
In this moment to be here and fully present.
Satisfaction with nothingness is ecstasy.

Manners Of Conception

Many Ways To Manifest

A mother who’s of middle age has a baby.
He’s newborn but adopted which does not matter.
She adores him completely as if he were hers
Biologically – the way that she prefers.
She succumbs to the fear that her dream may shatter.
Intense pain she likes? The answer may be maybe.

She had never been pregnant. Her burning desire
To experience motherhood naturally
Overcomes her clear thinking. She wants to have more
Children and preferably a long time before
She’s unable. Has she missed the point completely?
Is there righteousness in what she wants to acquire?

With the end result most people are most concerned,
But she has what she wanted yet not satisfied
With the process through which it came. What can she do?
She may consider trying to be someone who
Can be satisfied anyway. Her heart will guide
Her through experiences where lessons are learned.

We are scrutinized by the prevailing mindset
About how we accomplish things. We need to do
Things in order to get the results we expect
So that we remain ‘normal.’ There is no ‘correct’
Way to manifest happiness. This point of view
In the long run cannot be a source of regret.

Manifest Perfection

Getting Affairs In Order

Knowing how to screw up well, I’m driven insane.
This is no way a pity post. What I admit
Is of value to those who have tremendous guilt.
Relationships I’ve severed will not be rebuilt.
As a family member I’m truly unfit.
Those of you who are hated, I do know your pain.

I can’t change what has happened. Consumed with remorse,
I can only create my own purgatory
Through reminders from others who do living well.
All my life I have put people through certain hell.
Is my unchecked behavior the matter with me?
How did I manage to become such a dark force?

These questions I shall live with now that I am old
And no longer as crazy and ego driven.
Time I have now to ponder this life of a fool.
With the right rearing up I could have been a jewel
Of a person. I will never be forgiven
Of my wrongdoings. There are many to be told.

So, how can I feel worthy of still being here?
I’m a threat to society. My time is near,
But I’m also obliged to do all I can do
To prepare a clean exit and honor the few
Who will remember me as someone who was dear.
I’ll look forward where there is the least bit of fear.

Define Yourself

Know Yourself As Eternity Knows You

How do you Define Yourself? Do you think that you
Are a separate entity from everything
Else that you perceive? Do you believe that you are
Everything even though the notion is bizarre
To most people? We each have an inner being
Who can answer these questions from out of the blue.

The Big Bang is still happening. It never ceased.
It’s a process in progress with a beginning
And an ending uncertain from our perspective.
As sophisticated as we are we still live
As if we do not know that the earth is spinning
In its orbit by forces immensely released.

Someone has thrown a bottle of ink at the wall.
The big spot in the middle is surrounded by
Smaller ones. There are droplets on the outer fringe.
It’s foolish to think that our actions don’t impinge
On all that is occurring. It’s hard to deny
Unity fundamental. It’s an easy call.

In our ordinary everyday consciousness,
We pretend that we are not what we are truly.
Without eyes the sun cannot express as sunlight.
We know darkness because of what we know as bright.
You call things into beingness naturally.
You are the universe. You can be nothing less.

Win Life’s Battles?

The War Of Life

The Supreme Art Of War is a serious one
Among humans. With it we are preoccupied.
Our survival depends on the study of war
Otherwise there is nothing it can be good for.
Our behavior somehow gives us some sense of pride,
And in warfare there is only one solution.

Know thyself. Know thy enemy. Move not unless
There’s a healthy advantage. Amid the chaos
There is also opportunity to deceive.
When you’re strong you must make the enemy believe
That you’re weak, and if you can get that point across,
Then they are overcome with substantial success.

Don’t repeat the same tactics which have gained you one
Victory. Let your methods be regulated
By the infinite variety of chances
To improve on your most current circumstances.
Keep your mind and your keen senses activated.
When at war there’s no automatic solution.

Let your plans be as dark and impenetrable
As the night. Like a lightning flash move and attack.
One may know how to conquer but without being
Able to do it. Is there a way of freeing
Human nature from itself? The virtue we lack
Does little to keep the earth balanced and stable.

Communicate With Non-Physical

Spirit Is Among Us

Since my mother has passed she’s been blinking the lights
Everywhere I go to let me know she’s around.
I’m surprised and delighted to know that she can.
She communicates now with me much better than
She did when she was physical. What we have found
Is continued relationship and grand insights.

But is she or is she not communicating
With me? Or is my wishful thinking making me
More susceptible to exotic episodes?
If I ask these questions the connection erodes.
She exists still, and I am most grateful to be
Receptive to the truth. Peace of mind it does bring.

There can be no resistance in that vibration.
She is passed, and she’s not doing anything strange
Or upsetting. It’s best for me to understand
That the soul never ceases. This knowledge is grand.
It makes me more receptive to positive change
In my outlook which is of my own creation.

My mother is no longer the human being
That she was. Resistance, fear, and doubt are released.
Everything that we fought about no longer holds
Any interest so that whatever unfolds
Is of value. My feel for life is then increased.
I’ll adhere to this wonderful way of seeing.

Setting Intentions

Creating Your Dreams

The purpose of your Setting Intentions is to
Allow all the things that you’ve been wanting to flow
Into your life experience. You understand
That this is a vibrational universe, and
You are exhilarated about this to know.
What you want to make happen can then become true.

What you’re thinking and feeling and what you’re getting
Are a vibrational match always to be sure.
You are the creator of your experience.
Practicing allowing makes the wisest of sense.
In itself it is a wonderful adventure,
One in which there is nothing worth your regretting.

Allowing means acknowledging all the good things
About your life. It means basking and frolicking
In the positive aspects of you’re here and now.
Everything’s done already. You need not know how
To make things happen for you. Indeed everything
Comes to you easily. It’s what happiness brings.

You are looking for only what you want to see.
The variety of objects of attention
Is enough that you easily find wellbeing.
Do what you need to do to enhance your seeing.
Look not upon life with undue apprehension.
You can dream your world as you believe it should be.

Profound Words

Wisdom Speake

Space is not just nothing. It contains everything.
Mystery is its essence. A darkness profound
Fully blankets the consciousness in the unknown.
It is by our human nature that we are prone
To consider space travel because we’re earthbound.
More than anything else, space is interesting.

Whether pondered mentally or actually,
Rather than just a mystery, space is perceived
As a function of whatever solids it holds.
Within it every kind of occurrence unfolds.
This enveloping enigma must be believed
To be real as it’s known scientifically.

Intervals there are of space. It is connective.
You are not a flash of consciousness that occurs
Between two eternal periods of darkness.
You’re an integral part of the cosmic process.
To each thing that exists everything else refers.
The deepest realm of space is that in which we live.

Earth is not a big rock infested with living
Organisms any more than your skeleton
Is bones infested with cells. You are a symptom
Of the earth. It’s not necessary to become
What we are already. Our full integration
With existence is one wholesome awakening.

What Did You Forget?

Trust Your Memory

You can bug people beautifully by asking,
“What Did You Forget?” They may suspect that they must
Remember something important. They may not be
Receptive to considering it carefully.
To a new way of thinking one could well adjust.
Be a part of a wholesome reawakening.

What’s the most obvious thing one must remember
In each waking moment? What’s the most forgotten
Truth that causes confusion within the psyche?
Who on earth can answer these questions correctly?
There is no disadvantage in knowing not when
Someone will leave in your soul a glowing ember.

Someone says that he’s Tim Jones, another, Joe Blow.
These are lies that are fed to us when we are young.
Remember back before you were programmed to be
A person and a product of society.
Now into a world of illusion you are flung.
Be more receptive to what you already know.

Simply the fabric and structure of existence
Itself you are. There is a big conspiracy
To ignore who you really are deep down inside.
The false ego must be constantly gratified
By the faulty structures that allow it to be.
We become exhausted living under pretense.

You Are A Miracle

You Are Of Divine Essence

You don’t focus your attention on how to get
Your thyroid gland to function just as you do not
Have to give your attention to the sun shining.
Birth and death are both puzzles not worth defining.
Understanding yourself to you matters a lot.
You control everything without breaking a sweat.

Everlasting nonexistence cannot exist.
Consciousness is unending. You never began
Nor will cease as pure spirit. Not in a dark room
Will you be locked forever as some folks assume.
What awaits is all part of an infinite plan.
The miraculous part of you can’t be dismissed.

It’s a yoga – a kind of realization
To consider what it was like after waking
Up after not having really fallen asleep.
In the vacuum of consciousness you get to keep
Your spiritual essence. Remain painstaking
In your quest of true happiness. All else is done.

As a being you’re fantastically complex.
Never having learned how to do all that you do,
You do it with perfection. The same energy
That is you is also all existence, you see.
In a scientific sense you are the one who
Makes it all happen as your consciousness reflects.

Create Miracles

Easy Magic

When you are connected to who you really are
You are powerful. What you give attention to
Is what you attract into your experience.
Between you and your true self the big difference
Is that your inner being has a forward view.
It looks not to the past. You may find that bizarre.

Looking forward, your true self is naturally
The eternal custodian of all your dreams.
Exposed to the contrast of your life, you create
A vibrational version. When you reach a state
Of delighted contentment then everything seems
Magical. Is this not the way life ought to be?

You accept the vibrational version as real
As its manifestation. Your inner being
Knows all that you have wished for. It communicates
An idea or impulse. Your passion creates
Positive momentum. It is helpful seeing
The reality of everything that you feel.

Feel the power that you own to make miracles
Happen for you and others. Get into that state
Of pure positive energy, and let it flow
Through your life. There is little else you need to know.
Be aware of the thoughts that uplift and elate.
Know that you and your inner being are great pals.

Why I’m So Tired

Psychic Energy Depletion

What I’m doing fulfills me. I could not feel more
In alignment with my dreams. I feel satisfied
In what I have accomplished throughout my career,
And regarding my future, I’m perfectly clear
That its brightness will bless me. Luck is on my side.
Plentiful are the avenues I may explore.

But sometimes I’m exhausted while I’m having fun.
It’s as if I’m an infant at bedtime. I can’t
Keep my eyes open longer despite what I do.
It’s a feeling that I’m forced to surrender to.
My remaining awake is much more important
Than the rest that I need so that I can function.

The reason that I feel emotion is because
I’m two vibrational vantage points, meaning that
My conscious self has one, and my inner being
Has another. They are not always agreeing,
And the gap that this causes is worth looking at.
I am always subject to spiritual laws.

There are two possible reasons I’m depleted.
As the gap gets wider, I have less energy.
As the gap narrows, I am refreshed and complete.
When expansion is fast, often times I don’t meet
Where it is in the moment. I most want to be
Receptive to the prospect of good times ahead.

Make It Happen In A Day

Twenty-Four Hours To Pleasure

If I can feel it then in time I will see it.
I’ve just got to find some way of soothing the beast
That keeps me from receiving. My feelings of doubt
Bring me no satisfaction. I can do without
The emotional drama. May it be the least
Of my issues. To trust in myself I commit.

I can feel it, therefore, it must certainly be,
And it is. Everyone is receiving something
From the higher self or from the news of the day.
What we have in our lives must reflect in this way.
Always in the receptive mode, there is nothing
That I can’t choose for myself. I’m in this way free.

Momentum is another special puzzle piece.
Ever moving cooperative components
Are aligning themselves according to how I
Let it all happen… or not. The question is why
Do I want what I’m wanting. It has to make sense
To my truest self. My ego I must release.

Give your attention to something, and something will
Manifest in a short while – perhaps in a day.
Don’t be oblivious to the way that you feel.
Unseen forces that make worlds to you will reveal
Things that are most appealing. There is no delay
In its coming. Your wishes they want to fulfill.

Business

Perpetual Collaboration

If you want to do business then go right ahead.
Stop asking yourself questions and living in doubt
That it can ever happen. Your nine to five job
That you’ve come to despise definitely will rob
You of happiness which is what life is about.
It’s not healthy to continue something you dread.

Just Do It! But don’t do it because someone claims
To have made tons of money. It is but a scam.
Do what you do with passion. What comes from the heart
Is of intrinsic value. The moment you start
Seeing yourself as worthy you won’t give a damn
Any longer about playing sick social games.

Many people believe they are incapable
Of achieving great things so they settle for less
Than they’re worth. They are living mediocracy.
Believing this is the only way things can be,
In their lives they achieve little to no success,
And happiness is always inaccessible.

Once you have decided, know your industry well.
Learn from those at the top. Research all that you can.
Find your niche, and be master of what you provide
To the world. What you love is done with special pride.
Get with likeminded people, and stick to your plan.
Go the path that the passionate heart does compel.

Other People’s Minds

Minding Areas Of Avoidance

Other People’s Minds chatter and so does my own.
I cannot make assumptions about what goes on
In their heads. I cannot read Other People’s Minds.
I will only come up with mistruths of all kinds.
Then profusely misguided conclusions are drawn.
In a world of confusion I’ll find myself thrown.

In my head I am mostly. Drama I create.
Taking things where they should not go causes me grief.
I assume everybody thinks just as I do
Then end up traveling down the wrong avenue.
If I make no assumptions I will find relief
From the duty that carries emotional weight.

Do I make assumptions because I am afraid
To ask questions of others for more clarity?
Going deeper, I can find the place in between
 My thoughts and inner silence. All that must come clean
Will do so, then the right answer must come to me.
I can benefit from a no chatter crusade.

All the sadness and drama I experience
Is rooted in assuming or in my taking
Things personally. It is far better that I
Leave the unknown unfettered rather than to try
To construct my own story. That would be breaking
A spiritual rule and that of commonsense.

Immutable Advice

A Serious Message For Modern Times

This is the land of plenty in so many ways
That are not paid attention to nearly enough
By enough of the people for a solution
To be had. People look upon with derision
Those severely in need. We all know life is tough
For the many. With oneself is where concern stays.

Generations of the past faced problems galore.
Some advice is well taken, but most is ignored.
Those who will carry on will have challenges too.
Global warming and homelessness are but a few
Of the issues they will face as they move toward
A world that is more peaceful than it was before.

Lasting peace is based on the concept of oneness
Of all eight billion humans. I am a person…
Not a race or a country or a continent.
The human race is all that I can represent.
Epidemics and climate change make the world one
Albeit by brute force. Will they have some success?

We are one huge community… not several
Entities independent of one another.
The illusion of separateness causes war,
And the root of all evil corrupts evermore.
A big blast of enlightenment has to occur,
And it’s up to us only to say that it shall.

Overcoming Negative Emotions

Dealing With Bad Feelings

Human nature becomes me as I wonder why
I suffer the indignance of feeling this way.
Emptiness, frustration, and inadequacy
Are the demons that devour the cold heart of me.
Am I worthless to this world? Is this why I pay
Such a high price for lowlife? Do I want to die?

That is out of the question. I’ve been here before,
And each time it’s the same tape that I keep playing
That puts me at the precipice. What holds me back
Is my fear of the unknown. Spiritual plaque
Blocks the flow of wellbeing. What I am saying
Is that I don’t want to feel this way anymore.

Negative emotions in one’s experience
Happen when needs are unmet, and poor coping skills
Keep one out of alignment. So, what can one do
To escape the consuming cloud? Give me some clue
So that I can return to a life with some thrills.
What would be beneficial to my transcendence?

I’ll take responsibility for my feelings
After acknowledging that I have them. Then I
Can attempt to identify where they come from
At their core. In this simple way I’ll overcome
The dark cloud that is passed now. If I really try
I’ll succeed at getting back to wonderful things.

Peace Of Mind

Calmness Of Spirit

Marvelous and magnificent, the human brain
Can become fettered with anger and jealousy.
The balance of warmheartedness is essential
To its healthy performance. Then everything shall
Become as peaceful as it could possibly be.
Otherwise, the imbalance may drive one insane.

Negative emotions stem from self-centeredness.
Instead of bringing happiness and peace, they bring
Only problems. War is part of humanity.
As a species, we are a natural pity.
Can there be something done to reverse this whole thing?
Issues of our behavior we could well address.

Along with physical hygiene we need to teach
Children to cultivate emotional hygiene
So they can learn how to tackle their destructive
Emotions and have Peace Of Mind. This way to live,
For oneself and the planet, is wholesome and clean.
Believing in salvation is not a far reach.

People who have an altruistic attitude
Are much happier, healthier, and more at peace.
Scientists say that anger will lead to disease.
It would behoove the whole world to finally seize
Logical information. World anger may cease.
For thought, this is especially important food.

Control The Mind?

Manage The Mental Machine

Is it possible for you to control your mind?
It can’t be done directly. It’s not natural.
The mind focuses on things. That’s how it’s designed.
Even when it’s not focused it will try to find
Something to occupy it. Forever it shall,
Like an engine, be fact of the matter inclined.

Suppose you watch a movie that you like a lot.
Your focus is then amplified because you’re glued
To the screen for a long while. Because you like it
Your mind will stay engaged. You will not want to quit
What you’re doing. You are in a positive mood,
And that brings with it focus much more so than not.

Other kinds of emotions will do the same thing.
It’s as if the brain takes all its cues from the heart.
Greed and fear bring focus with them as does passion
Of the kind that’s expressed as love or aggression.
Whatever the mind does, the heart plays a big part.
The perception of consciousness is unending.

Breathing helps the mind focus in a certain way
That is deeply relaxing. You can concentrate
On a sound or a mantra. There is a cleansing
That the practice of intended breathing will bring
To the mind. It can put you in a righteous state
Of alignment. There isn’t a huge price to pay.

Regrets And Resentment

Excess Luggage

Someone did me wrong. It was cruel and unjust,
And because it has happened I cannot be free
To enjoy life. I’m anchored deeply in the past.
As I ruminate there I become an outcast
In a world that was once mine. Why can I not be
Gratified instead of feeling utter disgust?

Everything leads me to the place of being free.
Every human has at one time or another
Been betrayed. It’s a part of life. If I respond
Negatively, only more of the same is spawned.
Life is not about this part of human nature.
It’s about dealing with it spiritually.

The betrayal of trust has been experienced
By us all. The thoughts I keep regurgitating
Hold the past to the present. I can’t realize
My incredible beingness if I despise
Anyone else. The suffering to which I cling
Can only be to other folks wrongly dispensed.

Fresh and clear is the feeling that I would prefer.
The baggage is a burden. I can let it go
To the past where it has gone and is there to stay.
Every time that I go there, it won’t go away.
Blame will only stop me from receiving the flow
Of divine grace that naturally does occur.

Be Impeccable With Your Word

You Speak As You Live

More important is your word than most anything
Because your word is your ultimate destiny.
It paints for you a portrait specific and true
That the world gets to see more than all that you do.
Be as deliberate as you know you can be
And thoughtful in what you are speaking or writing.

Have a keen sense of what to say. With your intent
You deliver your message to all who may hear.
Your impeccability is all about you.
If you intend well, then wellness will follow through.
Use your energy for truth. Whatever you fear
Can be sensed in your message. This you can’t prevent.

The emotional poison that festers within
Can be cleaned out completely – almost like magic
If with yourself you’re sincere in all that you say.
Even something as simple as, “Have a nice day”
You can say with conviction. There’s no special trick.

Now is always a good time for you to begin.

Watch the world change around you as you begin to
Speak with substance and honor to all that you know
To be true. There is no reason ever to lie
If to yourself this gem of spirit you apply.
Your words do represent you wherever you go.
It is always refreshing to learn something new.

Spirituality

The Realm Of The Unseen

Spirituality is a cool waterfall
That refreshes the consciousness and the body.
One is one with oneself and the whole universe.
No one can deny that it is good to immerse
Oneself in sacred waters and be completely
Cleansed of bad energy which can affect us all.

Spirituality is the bright filament
Of the bulb of the body. Electricity
Is the current that flows in cycles unending
And gives movement and warmth to every living thing.
It’s the lock unto which only love is the key.
It is needed to live a life of contentment.

As the water, the bulb, and the lock represent
But the physical essence of what can be known,
The truth is that we are also the energy…
Every drop of the water, and the sacred key
Known as love. Knowing that you are never alone
Is of spirit. You are not here by accident.

You don’t have to improve yourself. You can accept
Who you are in this moment with all your failings.
Comparing yourself with others isn’t the way
Of the spiritual path. Don’t be led astray
By the essence of toxic social happenings.
Spirit has not a secret that must be well kept.

Abide In Me

Give Me Your Unending Trust

Remain stable and fixed in a state of oneness
With all things because they exist all within you.
When you see yourself as no longer separate
Or in isolation, you will appreciate
A newfound sense of freedom. How can this be true
If one’s life is the epitome of distress?

Consciousness is a shared phenomenon. No one
Is apart from it. From the level of spirit,
Human beings can feel much less isolated,
But because of our nature we’re easily led
To hold fast to the notion of self. We submit
To belief in separateness in the long run.

It’s not natural for us to see everything
As One thing. A unique person standing apart
From all others is how the self must be perceived
Unless some kind of enlightenment is achieved.
Individual expression is at the heart
Of the purpose of all that is now happening.

As you abide in me as I abide in you,
Something magical happens. Connection is made
With the consciousness of everything that exists.
We can meditate on how each person consists
Of all others and everything. Be not afraid
To explore this most enlightening point of view.
