Try Less And Trust

Human Connection

How can I enhance my ability to find
And maintain my alignment? I have momentum
From the past that disturbs me. My thankfulness for
A good upbringing generates guilt from the core
Of my being because of the mess I’ve become.
It is natural that to myself I’m unkind.

So, I speak of alignment and those kinds of things
That I got from some teachings. A stab in the dark
It is for me to take upon this endeavor.
I would keep doing this if I lived forever.
Though I don’t have my heart set on making a mark
On this world. I’m detached from its vast happenings.

By trusting in the process and trying much less,
I can then feel relief and the sense that things are
Working out. I need to stop regurgitating
How things are. Effort won’t accomplish anything
But delay and obstruction. I’m not very far
From achieving a long-awaited happiness.

I get far out ahead of myself, believing
That I have to get out there and make things happen.
In this attraction based universe there is not
Assertion. My thoughts and feelings matter a lot.
I can make good things happen all over again
By getting myself in the mood of receiving.

Be More Playful

Happy Hands

Be More Playful about your approach to living,
And accept that the laws of the universe are
Powerful, consistent, and unyieldingly fair.
You could not be more worthy. You could be aware
That you are without question a bright shining star.
You can let go of any practiced misgiving.

Focusing upon things that hold very little
Resistance is an easy and worthwhile way to
Change your vibration quickly, then other things will
Coalesce that are like them. Prepare for the thrill
Of it happening. Your life is a rendezvous
With adventure. You can’t remain noncommittal.

Things that you really care about can begin to
Surprise and delight you. You hold yourself apart
From those things by resistance to feeling better.
Limiting beliefs practiced will only fetter
Your spirit. Is it time that you take this to heart?
Your ability to see depends upon you.

Precision and uniqueness is that which is you.
As you play in life’s contrast, you are creating
Your experience. Start with things that are easy.
From the contrast, you define how things ought to be.
Willingness to take part is appreciating
Life as one sacred process exciting and new.

The Benefits Of Joy

Happily Receiving

There is something in balance with your energies.
When you hold a desire and you focus upon
It only and stop focusing on its absence,
In no time your satisfaction will be immense.
Blessings can happen when your resistance is gone.
Life gets better as you become easy to please.

If your reality now is not filling in
The way you want it to, your vibration is not
Where it should be, but you can change that instantly.
Your awareness of what’s missing can easily
Make you feel a bit needy. It matters a lot
That you muster some comfort within your own skin.

Creating is all about identifying
What is wanted, letting identification
Be enough, and then finding ways to get happy.
It is the natural state in which you should be.
You don’t need to worry about getting things done.
There is no limit to what happiness can bring

It’s already created – this thing you call now
A result of the energies that you have flowed
From the past, so look forward. All that lies ahead
Is created by right now. Be interested
In the things that bring you joy. Take the easy road
Through your life. You don’t need to worry about how.

Appreciate

From The Heart

Your vortex is a compilation of what you
Believe possible, but your life often is not.
Though the gap between the two can get rather wide,
You can shorten it. You are the one to decide
What is possible for you. It matters a lot
That whatever you dream, it will somehow come true.

You must know that your conscious beliefs do reflect
Your environment through inner conversations.
So your physical human life consists of all
That you have aligned with. You respond to the call
Of your true self by your most profound creations.
How you feel about your life is what you expect.

In the absence of what you want, you’ve asked for it
With great clarity, and the Law of Attraction
Is right on it. You now have to quiet your mind
By some process – indeed any one you can find.
There’s also value in visualization.
Many tools are established for your benefit.

The state of appreciation is the best one
To be in because there can be no resistance.
Thoughts are flowing, but they are purely positive.
It is so much more fun and exciting to live
In a way that you’re constantly offered the chance
To express your most heartfelt appreciation.

Your Only Work

No Kidding!

A cooperative component you must be
With your powerful, important thoughts and feelings.
You can’t think against your own desires and allow
Them to manifest. Don’t concern yourself with how
Things will happen. You need not know of the dealings
Of the provident forces that you cannot see.

Talk yourself into believing what you want. Cease
The split energy. You say that you want it, but
You have always been wanting it, and it has not
Come to be. If you wallow in this state a lot
You remain unfulfilled with a pain in the gut.
Only having it will give you ultimate peace.

Don’t shoot yourself in the foot with your awareness
Of ‘what is.’ It will hold you firmly in a place
Where you can’t see what could be or what’s becoming.
What is available to you is a wellspring
Of abundance, wellbeing, and natural grace.
When you let go of ‘what is,’ you’re making progress.

Where you are is no problem. From there, you can go
To the next step, which is to feel a bit better.
Lean toward the direction of optimism.
You can then be assured that the chances are slim
That your newfound enlightenment you will fetter.
Think only the thoughts that get good feelings to flow.

Take Your Mind Off What Is

The Brink Of Desolation

I would like to let go of my reality,
But I can’t. It’s stuck to me like whiteness to rice.
I keep thinking that I’m moving forward, yet I
Cannot manifest no matter how hard I try.
What I need is someone to give me good advice
On how I can keep up with my own energy.

Something is out of balance. I know deep within
That when I focus on something and I have no
Resistance to prevent it from becoming real,
It will happen. It depends on the way I feel
About it. I can choose to just go with the flow.
This present moment is the best time to begin.

My awareness of my now is preventing my
Now from changing. It’s my responsibility
To maintain my vibration, so my attention
Is on good things. This does lead to the prevention
Of depression. What is now can elevate me
To the next level. All of my now does apply.

Now has already been created. It’s old news.
It’s also the bouncing off place for what is new.
This is deliberate creation at its best.
I can improve on how my wishes are expressed.
My emotions will tell me what I need to do.
I am kept in alignment by which ones I choose.

That Was Then

Sad Story Retired

All my manifestations keep going somewhere
Other than where I want them to, which is with me.
I’ve had this conversation with myself before,
And my thinking about it does not give me more
Of an edge on fulfillment. I need to break free
Of the prison created by my lack of care.

That Was Then. This Is Now. I know how to relieve
Myself of the resistance. By my maintaining
My vibration, I can manifest easily.
I am fully in touch with who I’m meant to be.
I know now that there is no use in complaining.
I am responsible for all that I receive.

The path of least resistance is being carefree.
Practicing feeling good until I have allowed
Something to manifest is in itself worthwhile,
But my appreciation goes the extra mile.
To the mission of happiness I am avowed.
I know now what the past has provided for me.

Then, I didn’t know what I know now, and what I
Know now is different from the grief I once knew.
I can better feel the path of least resistance.
Within each moment there exists the perfect chance
To be blissful. To my own self I must be true.
All the laws of the universe here do apply.

Make Peace

Positive Change

Something wants to change. What in the world could it be?
I don’t know, but not knowing what shape it will take
Isn’t driving me crazy. I only know that
This Law of Attraction stuff I do have down pat.
All that is revealed is by the peace that I make
With the present and all that has happened to me.

I got happy. I stand here in my wholeness and
In my full resonance with what I have become.
As I revel in that, changes do make their way
Into my life experience. It’s fun to play
In a world that adores me. My life is awesome.
Of my thoughts and feelings I’ve assumed full command.

I could set a goal, identify a timeline,
And hold to it, but that rarely is fulfilling
Because my awareness of the thing I have not
Ties every expectation into a tight knot.
I don’t like when that happens, so I am willing
To believe in my heart that everything is fine.

Making peace with where I am has helped me to be
More in touch with my true self who is satisfied
No matter what the circumstance. My emotion
From my place of asking, “Why?” is what gets things done.
How I feel about living is my only guide.
I’ll get used to the idea of being free.

The Power Of Appreciation

Thanks From The Heart

The ideal life for me is a compilation
Of what I believe possible as I partake
Of the blessings it offers. Often I am there
In that place of alignment where I am aware
Of the infinite splendor in a mere daybreak.
There is much power in my every creation.

My feelings are creations. Manifestations
Of those that are most positive happen with me
On a regular basis. I go for the best
I can have in each moment. As they are expressed,
The attraction of wellbeing comes easily.
I need not know a thing about how the world runs.

“Reach for a better feeling thought.” This I believe
To be guidance worth taking. Whenever I feel
Myself going southward, I can remember this.
From contentment, I can go to a state of bliss.
Having pinched myself, I know that life is for real.
By my choice I can be in the mode to receive.

It is fun to imagine my dreams coming true.
Meditation is helpful in clearing my mind
Of the negative clutter. Appreciation
Is more powerful, and it’s a whole lot more fun.
In acknowledging wonderful things, I will find
Life to be pleasurable and brand spanking new.

Open Doors

Unlocking Destiny

Anytime that you want something, it matters not
What it is, in the moment you launch the desire,
You acknowledge the not having of it also.
If there’s one, then the other is something to know.
So, how do you get to the point where you acquire
What it is that you’re after? This matters a lot.

Having done all your wanting, and as you begin
Or continue to give your thoughts to your knowing
That it will manifest, you are in the best place
For receiving the blessings of infinite grace.
Concentrate on the ways you can keep it flowing.
Be thankful for the wonderful state you are in.

The balance of the universe is all about
What you’re adding to each side of the equation.
If you’re focusing more on the lack of something,
Then only disappointment your wanting will bring.
You are now more receptive to the pervasion
Of abundance in your life. You know beyond doubt.

Acknowledge all the positive aspects of what
You’re living. You will open the doors, in this way,
To utter satisfaction in the here and now.
You have noting to do but relax and allow
Universal forces that are always at play.
Only your own resistance will keep the doors shut.

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.

Don’t Worry

Panic

I just let life come at me, and then I respond
So that when I want something, the way that I feel
Is quite positive. But the opposite is true
About things that I don’t want. Not much I can do
Under this circumstance. My self-structured ordeal
I wish could be banished with a kind magic wand.

Do I really have any control over my
Own experience? Something tells me that I should
Have as much because I’m the creator of me.
I can have it the way that I want it to be.
I am well on my way, when this is understood,
To a life of fulfillment with no need to try.

There’s a deeper part of me that knows very well
What I’m thinking and wishing. It’s fully aware
Of where I am and where I would most like to be,
And it has staked a vibrational claim on me.
About past sins and failures… It will not go there.
If I go against it, I experience hell.

The vibrational driver’s seat I can be in.
The path of nonresistance, for me, is the one
To be focused on. There is no need to worry.
As I stumble upon it deliberately,
A new setpoint of understanding has begun.
I can run a fine race without having to win.

The Cooperative Component

The Most Important Piece

With my own powerful and important thoughts, I
Can allow what’s becoming to be what is now.
If I think against my own desires, then the gap
Between what is and what I want becomes a trap.
In the course of my life, I must remember how
To enjoy it rather than to let it go by.

A Cooperative Component I can be
With the process evolving by feeling my way
To alignment. The journey and destination
Are of the same importance. They both can be fun.
If my thoughts become negative, then I betray
Everything that I live for. This now I can see.

I can talk myself into believing what I
Want to happen in my life. The way that I feel
Tells me in which direction I need to be faced.
Thinking of the past leaves in me a bitter taste.
I am rescued by better thoughts from the ordeal
Of self-doubt. On my self-guidance I must rely.

Letting go of what is in order to allow
What’s becoming is my work. I need not explain
Where I am now. It needs no justification.
Optimism remains the only solution
To the problem of apathy. Much I can gain
By dissolving my addiction to here and now.

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.

Gender Is Irrelevant

Sex Stereotypes Don't Matter

Men are seen less at spiritual gatherings.
There’s sufficient truth to this. It’s a statistic,
But in spirit, there’s no differentiation
Of that sort. It’s only the human condition
That makes of gender something rather fantastic.
Who is far more encouraged to ponder such things?

One could argue that women need, much more than men,
Spiritual alignment because they have more
Trouble finding fulfillment… Or just the reverse
May be true. It’s been argued that men are much worse
At compassionate feeling. They do not explore
Their emotions as freely. Are they alien?

Women are introspective. They feel a lot more
The contrast that their lives provide, and they can be
More considerate of all the finer details.
When in trouble their keen intuition prevails.
A much bigger picture men usually see,
And the details of things they have not much time for.

More acutely aware of the environment,
Women care for the whole earth and life everywhere.
Statistics generate labels that are unclear.
We are spiritual beings, and we are here
To look out for one another and truly care.
Peace on earth is achieved through our common intent.

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.

The Web Of Life

The Network Of Consciousness

Human consciousness is at the same time aware,
Understanding, and sensitive, yet ignorant.
The most ordinary everyday consciousness
Leaves out more than it takes in, and in the process,
It discards much importance. The mind simply can’t
Take in all that there is. Such a gift would be rare.

If we could extend our awareness to include
Those things that we leave out, then a deep inner peace
We would know, which is something that we should not know
According to the rules of society. So
To get the lowdown on life it’s best to release
Everyday understanding which is a bit crude.

A fabric interwoven so as to reflect
On front and back each other’s opposite pattern
Is the same as all life is. The bad and the good
Comingle in a network that is understood
To be the way it is, but it’s of great concern
How extremes in a troubled world interconnect.

Our sense organs are receptive and selective.
They pick out from a tiny band of frequencies
What we know to be real to us, and as we grow,
Newer instruments invented will help us know
More of the universe’s possibilities.
There’s still much to be explored from our perspective.

Talk To The Future Self

Inspiration From Within

Time is such that it falls within eternity.
Thus we’re able to visit, whenever we choose,
Other versions of ourselves. The information
We get from such visits may be the solution
To the issues we have now. Is this not good news?
Connection with the unknown does set the soul free.

Someone wants to get pregnant. In fact, it’s her goal.
Her desire to bring forth a child is very strong.
But for now she’s unable. The contract she made
With the spirit forthcoming cannot be betrayed
But by worry and doubt. She did get before long
Information from herself about this new soul.

Passion is what is needed to gain the insight
To proceed with the present. Also you must trust
That it’s not about time. It is about timing.
You can contact your future self just by being
Open to information. All that is discussed
Between you and your future you is only right.

We are all in the trusting mode every moment
Of our existence or else we could not exist.
You don’t have to ‘learn how’ to trust. Simply decide
On exactly what you will trust. You can confide
In the guidance of your future self. Do resist
The temptation to doubt what comes to the present.

What Is Consciousness?

Definition Of Being

Existence, as is known, is one unbroken thing.
All That Is contains everything that can be known
And unknown. There is another version of it.
That knows not itself at all. It has not a bit
Of consciousness. The feeling of being alone
Is all that this region of existence can bring.

What exactly is consciousness? It’s awareness
Of oneself by knowing what is not of the same
Awareness that oneself is or has. Existence
Contains all that there is. It needs no self-defense.
Consciousness is awareness by another name
Whether or not it has the desire to express.

All That Is creates within itself otherness.
It’s aware of itself through all that it creates.
It’s a kind of reflective energy pattern.
Consciousness means that one is able to discern
Individual selfhood and how it relates
To the otherness. It’s an eternal process.

Everything reflects consciousness. It is the way
That all of creation can become self-aware.
 Every creature is seeing through the eyes of God.
The mechanics of it all is nothing slipshod.
Infinite are the points of view one can compare
To oneself. All existence evolves as it may.

The Split Of Parallel Reality

The Coming Quantum Change

Two mirrors facing each other are in effect
Infinite iterations of reality.
Similarly there are many universes.
The more that I contemplate this thing the worse is
My perverse understanding, yet I need not be
Ignorant for much longer. I hope I’m correct.

Or I could just not think of it altogether.
Giving much pain to my brain is all it may do.
It is up to me only in every known world
That my most hidden purpose be rightly unfurled.
I’m much bigger than I thought. I am someone who
Is important on each earth as I would prefer.

With the firm recognition that I occupy
Way much more space than just my physical body,
I’m aware of connections to realities
Not the same as this one, and from each I may seize
Information and insight to get myself free
From the clutter of this life that has gone awry.

Natural is the timing that I’ve created.
Ever changing cycles is what earth’s all about.
That there is an infinity of them can be
Food for thought, reason for action, and finally,
Enough conscious attention to mitigate doubt
That all worlds are by nature interrelated.

Manifest

Universal Personal Magic

You must meet the vibration. You can’t be above
Or below it. In order to draw things to you
You can’t want them so much that you fear they won’t come.
Every act of good fortune comes directly from
Having met the vibration. The thing you must do
Is believe yourself worthy of infinite love.

Your thoughts create your life, so whatever you do
Make sure your thoughts are positive affirmations.
Otherwise you will be stuck in the same old grind.
Carefully worded phrases by you are designed
To uplift and propel you. Among the best ones
Are those specifically created by you.

Fall in love with the universe because it’s true
That it loves you most passionately from the start.
It wants you to succeed in all that you try out.
All that stands in the way is your confounding doubt
That things can work out for you. You’ve drifted apart
From the self that is an integral part of you.

You are good on your own. Do love yourself dearly
And the world that shows up for you will blow your mind.
You decide how you want things and they shall occur.
By now, you are not considered an amateur.
You can manifest anything when you’re aligned
With forces that create worlds and quite easily.

Just Relax

Don't Hurry Life

You could not be more worthy but you could be more
Aware and more allowing of your worthiness.
Your approach could be softer. Accept that the laws
Of the universe are powerful and the cause
Of all things that occur here. You have full access
To your treasure. There is some excitement in store.

The way that you show yourself that all this is true
Is by focusing on things that do not hold much
Resistance to begin with and then watching how
Universal forces will respond and allow
rendezvous with occasions that will produce such
In a fashion convincing enough to sell you.

Your ability to be receptive to things
That matter to you dearly can surely increase.
As you start focusing in less resistant ways
Wonderful things will happen to you within days.
It is time to relax. Give your wanting some peace.
Contentment in the journey is what your calm brings.

The precision and the uniqueness of who you
Are is represented in this co-creative
Arena of existence. Amid the contrast
Your advantage is huge. Your intention is vast.
You know best with a clear mind just how you should live.
Every moment of being is blessed and new.

Try Less

All Is Done

All I need to know is that it’s already done.
I’ve identified something that I want and I
Can maintain my alignment. I’ll build momentum
So that all the sooner that which I want will come.
But a wise inner voice says that I ought to try
A lot less and to trust in the process begun.

Constant trusting that the process works without fail
Is all that it requires. I have put it all there –
Everything that I want. I can’t keep focusing
On the absence. I will not accomplish a thing
But a blocking of that which is going nowhere.
They exist in my mind’s eye in vivid detail.

It is not about thinking about it a lot.
Too much of that will lead me into depression.
To accept that the process is worthy and real
There must be some passion in the way that I feel
For the thing that is wanted, and I am someone
Who can maintain a blissful state absent of thought.

I Must Chill. That’s the bottom line. Just let things be.
Everything is accomplished. I need to relax
And allow things to happen. It is not okay
If I’m feeling discomfort. I must steer away
From diversions and self-sabotaging attacks.
I let myself move toward what I want to see.

No Worries

The Freedom of Consciousness

My responses to living at times I perceive
As much too automatic. The things that I want
Positively I respond to, and the reverse
Is the case with things I don’t want. What could be worse
Than being such a slave to the dreams that may haunt?
In the end, it’s the feeling I want to achieve.

Under these circumstances I have no control
Over my own experience, and it’s not right.
I’m supposed to have complete control over that.
So my responsibility cannot fall flat.
Consciously I must move by the way of delight.
No other way of behaving renders me whole.

Inside me there’s a being who’s thinking about
My now moment in time – each and every moment.
And it has a perspective and an opinion…
And awareness… a stake in the game to be won.
There is nothing that it wants more than my accent
Up the ladder emotional without a doubt.

Positive nonresistance while focused upon
Only things that delight me – may this recipe
Be the one that fulfills me. I need worry not.
My vibrational set point does matter a lot.
What I want out of life is to be more happy
Rather than too reactive and somewhat withdrawn.

Open Doors

Many Opportunities

The balance of the universe vibrates between
What exists and the lack of it. If I’m able
To identify something I truly desire
Then the absence of this thing I want to acquire
Does exist. It’s important to remain stable
And to practice some positive mental hygiene.

From the point of my saying that I want something,
Through my thinking about it, one or the other
Side I give more attention to. What comes to be
Then depends upon which one feels better to me.
Only it or the lack of it can but occur.
This concept does not have to be mystifying.

Feeling lack about what I want only delays
Its arrival in my life. I’ll give attention
To my reasons for wanting it and my belief
That its coming is imminent. I’ll find relief
In my trusting the universe to get things done.
I can maintain my balance in myriad ways.

But the best way to open doors to everything
That I find most delightful is to acknowledge
Now the positive aspects of what I’m living.
The universe is intent on its giving
Whatever is asked of it. On this leading edge
Of creation, I find my life most fulfilling.

You Get What You Believe

The Result of Deep Focus

It’s a different orientation when you
Understand that you create your reality.
You are the sole attractor of all that you get.
Whenever things come to you that you do regret
It’s because you’re not believing it completely.
Things that happen are because of your point of view.

Your life is created by the story you tell,
And by things you remember, and conversations.
It’s about how you feel about things and about
Finding ways to enjoy life… to mitigate doubt
That you are meant to be here. All the conditions
Are set up by the power intent does compel.

Do intend to be joyful in every moment.
Find something you can focus upon, and create
A magnificently clear point of attraction.
You do not have to think about getting things done.
You enhance your commitment to feeling just great
By acknowledging when things reflect your content.

Guide yourself to awareness and observations
Of things turning out your way as you get to know
How to tune yourself instantly into that space
Where you’re fed by the cosmos’ infinite grace.
Turning thoughts into things that will constantly flow
Is what you came here for. You’re among blessed ones.

Do One Simple Thing

Changing Life's Story

In the moment one recognizes a desire
There are two simultaneous acknowledgements.
One is having that something. The other is not.
People put their focus on the latter a lot.
When this happens it brings on the worst of events.
This duplicity about things does life require.

The balance of the universe lies though therein.
All creation is twofold. Each has within it
The potential of the thing not manifesting
And, of course, the good feeling that having does bring.
Knowing which is the better requires not much wit
And to choose to feel bad is a terrible sin.

I add to one side or the other through the day
As my thoughts become random and infiltrating
Which do I want to focus on? That is easy,
But I act to my detriment unconsciously.
I can pay attention to what makes my heart sing,
Then to negative emotion I won’t fall prey.

I’ll acknowledge the positive aspects always
As my life keeps unfolding. It opens the door
To every opportunity. Doors remain closed
If I keep on thinking the thoughts that are opposed
To the thing that I want more than ever before.
I can change my life story to one of some praise.

The Web Of Life

The Cosmic Collective

Human consciousness is at the same time aware
And is sensitive to its own understanding,
But it also is ignorant of many things.
If we know what we shouldn’t then this knowledge brings
On a much deeper knowing about everything.
Yet our everyday consciousness can’t take us there.

Our sense organs are selective. They will pick out
Certain things they’re receptive to but that is all.
The electromagnetic spectrum is so wide
And within a small segment is where we reside.
Our perception of everything is fairly small.
We take in very little and tolerate doubt.

Consciousness leaves out more than it cares to take in.
That’s the way things are set up in this here and now.
Yet because of this what it’s programmed to ignore
Would be helpful in quelling our horrors and more.
Is there some way on this earth that life may allow
Us to be more enlightened? Where would we begin?

Though it is wise and natural that we’re this way
We gain some understanding through what we access
Through our forms of technology and practices
Of the nature of spirit, and what this all says
Is that we are given the choice to acquiesce
To the grace and the power of forces at play.

There Is Only Attraction

Opposites Ignored

When someone does something I believe isn’t right
It may feel like assertion. They did this to me.
Their action is deliberate. There is intent.
Would it be worth my while if I chose to resent
This person and respond in the highest degree
With some form of aggression? I’m not one to fight.

No such thing as assertion in this universe
Does exist because there is only attraction.
If something happens to me, I invited it
Through vibrational patterns I often transmit.
It is hard not to feel that some wrong has been done
But to cling tightly to it is truly a curse.

What this person is at best is a component
Who is fully cooperative with regard
To my subconscious conditioning through the years.
If I feel like a victim and have many fears
Then my vulnerability will make life hard.
Circumstances recurring will cause much lament.

My two points of attraction – the bad and the good –
Represent my emotional guidance system.
How I feel is an indicator of the way
I attract what I’m getting. So, I can obey
What the system is telling me. I can’t condemn
And rejoice at the same time. Indeed no one could.

You Will See It When You Believe It

Sight Is Knowing

Is believing seeing or seeing believing?
Some confusion is worthwhile for some clarity.
You must be a cooperative component
With your own thoughts of power through conscious intent.
Not against what you’re wanting can your thinking be.
Try to be in the state of always receiving.

Talk yourself into believing what you desire.
Refrain from the temptation to tell your story
Of the way things are constantly. Don’t grab the ear
Of another and tell them all about your fear.
They will label you toxic. It’s better to be
Positive so that wholesomeness you may acquire.

What is may be of interest to others who
Think that what is is important to care about.
We have many excuses for not achieving
What we want in the present. But here is the thing.
What is isn’t of value. It generates doubt
About what you’re receiving and all you can do.

You must let go of what is so you can allow
What’s becoming to happen or else it will not.
New desire born of contrast is living fresh air.
Just decide to be delighted on the way there.
The journey toward fulfillment does matter a lot,
And the power that you have is right here and now.

Ask And Expect

Your World Awaits

Is it possible that I don’t ask hard enough?
That it hasn’t come true yet is clear in my mind.
Can’t I just let the process work out on its own?
I can’t be in the receiving mode if I moan
About what hasn’t happened. Comfort I can find
In the fact that my focus is making things tough.

I can’t hold myself in the awareness of lack
And expect good to happen. It works not that way.
I must feel the excitement and then let it go
Or else build more upon it so that it may grow
To obsessive magnificence, and I will stay
In sublime expectation. All is well on track.

Ask briefly then expect. That’s the best way to go.
I can feel how keen my awareness is of things
As they are – somewhat hopeless. It adds resistance
Into the whole equation. I welcome the chance
To test infinite powers. How I’m feeling brings
About manifestations of joy or sorrow.

I want there to be safety and justice for all.
Those conditions I can’t control. What I can do
Is keep myself creatively focused on joy.
Nothing but my awareness of hate can destroy
Any hope of fulfillment. I am the one who
Makes the final decision to engage the small.

Shorten The Time

Rely On The Timeless

Happy Days were upon us. Some want their return
And will do anything to grasp tightly those roots.
Onward though does the dial move away from the past.
Fettered dreams of simplicity fade away fast
In the heated up present. Regretful pursuits
Are the game plans of many with little concern.

Some believe our democracy hangs by a thread
As perhaps it did always from its bloody start.
It is something to fight for. Just saying the word
At the start of our sports events is as absurd
As the sheer lack of justice that cuts to the heart
Of a once perceived order that now appears dead.

All the things that I’ve wanted this nation to be
Is a dream that I still have. The contrast is good
As it causes me to fill in much more detail.
I’d prefer it not be at the pace of a snail.
How do I cut the time frame, indeed if I could?
…By not focusing on things I don’t want to see.

I improve my ability to recognize
What it is that I’m wanting. It’s perceptual
In its humble beginning. Yet it picks up speed.
Focusing more there, I am essentially freed
To explore all the fruits of my best accrual.
One small change in my outlook is one worthy prize.

Be Easy

...Get Happy

What goes on in a real world is ripe to be feared.
Civil War has been raging cold since Reagan’s reign.
Fair elections endangered along with the laws
Of a once free democracy gives no one pause
But the people right in there who must be insane.
Contrast is no illusion. It’s hardly revered.

But I’m here for the contrast. Isn’t everyone?
That’s how I know precisely ways things ought to be.
I’ll keep myself deliberately in a state
On my path of enlightenment absent the weight
Of a gravity timestamp. I’ll make history
In the ways that are playful, exotic, and fun.

Through sublime insignificance I play the role
Of the avid observer with passion to tell
What e’er may be of focus. A unique witness,
I need not hold resistance, for that causes stress.
I can test life with small things and watch them turn well
And then tell all about it. That makes me feel whole.

Improvement comes with practice at being easy.
It can only get better if I up the game
With attention to bigger amid the contrast
That exists to excite me. The angst is bypassed.
My uniqueness I dare to proclaim without shame.
I can make a big deal out of coming to be.

An Amazing Life

Wholesome Being

Why does ‘what is’ often dominate my life game?
It need not be that way, but the reason is clear.
I put way too much credence in my five senses
Which is fine for the ego and its defenses
But to pay more attention to what we hold dear
Is to live life in absence of sorrow and shame.

Among known ways of knowing, emotions are those
Which are subtle yet potent in how I behave.
We pay little attention to how they evolve
Until suddenly there’s a big problem to solve.
How we feel is important. Much grief one does save
In the process of living as consciousness grows.

I can hear you and touch you and that is okay.
Satisfaction and wonder my senses give me.
But to say that ‘I’m sensing you’ is but to say
I can feel your awareness of me through the day.
There’s a sense of fulfillment knowing I can be
In the state of connection the natural way.

My emotional center I can establish
Then more dominant than the senses it can grow.
My awareness of living is bound to improve.
Personal encounters evidently will move
With the flow of magnificence, and I will know
What it’s like to live life on the cusp of a wish.

Be Easy About Life

The Purity Of Simplicity

Wishing life would get easy gets old too damned fast
For the spirit within me to keep a straight face
While pretending to see it as many highways.
Up and down, then around things, they’re often a maize
In the menacing mindscape. Is there saving grace?
Or is there no escape from the life of contrast?

“I wish I were a willow…” is no wizard’s way
To finagle a safe wiggling out of this mess
That I’d something to do with. To be but a tree
In a blanket of sunlight with no way to see
All the world it reveals is to be without stress,
Gravity notwithstanding nor how it may sway.

Rather, I am the substance of all I desire –
All the passion and focus I feed to the dream
Of becoming who I really am at my core.
Am I worthy of good things? I couldn’t be more!
My uniqueness is one with the energy stream
From which life flows. Struggle my life doesn’t require.

All There Is provides meaning to focus offered.
Holding little resistance, oneself will allow
Only good things to happen. The contrast I feel
Is the pearl in the oyster that life will reveal.
All I need do is kick back and let life endow
Me with joy and wellbeing. My Spirit Be Heard!

Are Other People Real?

The Plasticity Apparent

This question that I must ask of my consciousness,
Wide awake and with focus upon humankind,
May be moot to most others who would call insane
Anyone who would ask it. Within their disdain
Is the key to the answer. Relief may I find
In engaging my asking, but not to excess.

People never are as I perceive them to be.
 Each of us wants to mold into specific shape
What we know through the senses. So, reality
Is just how I perceive it. And this I do see
As a fact most confounding. Is there an escape
From the pit of inscrutable uncertainty?

When connected to spirit, I see through the eyes
Of the source of all of us. The realer they are
They may rise to the image I see as their best.
They’re as real as I make them. This begs to suggest
That the eye that beholds others is just as far
From the truth, as imagined. My, what a surprise!

Chains of Pain are created through my observing
What I don’t care to look at, then adding to it
Some more doubt and confusion plus firm evidence
Of a flaw in the fabric of my existence.
The eye of the beholder sees what it sees fit
To be worthy and justified in its being.

The Missing Piece

That Which Everyone Is In Search Of

I’ve been feeling there’s something in life that should change.
Some resistance I do have knowing exactly
How or what it would look like, but how it would feel
Must be my only focus. Then life will reveal
What it is that I’m missing. The trick is to be,
With regard to passion, within receiving range.

Stand I must in the wholeness in true resonance
With who I am and revel, then changes will come.
And I will recognize them on their way to me.
It’s a struggle to create deliberately
Because there’s an awareness one can’t escape from.
It’s resistance about the current circumstance.

Remaining on the treadmill of things as they are
Prevents me from their changing to something other
Than to keep trying, then failing. Then the despair
Takes control of the spirit. No wellness is there.
To make peace with where I am now has to occur.
The next piece about making peace then can’t be far.

The ability to feel good no matter what
Is the treasure I must know that I own outright.
Where, when, or how is not the question to be asked.
It is why that I want that leaves goodness unmasked
So that I can discover with utter delight.
Getting through the resistance, one needs a shortcut.

Know Thyself

The Spiritual Mirror Image

Since childhood I’ve been learning and relearning things
That others get the first time and with greater ease.
I don’t find it a problem until I’m perceived
And am judged for the way I am. Then I am peeved.
But I’ve been a fine bastard with my psychoses
And this self-observation – my ego it stings.

It’s and ongoing process. Self-discovery
Grows from learning of this world and all of its ways.
But the self that is studied is of the body
And the thing that we know as personality
Yet the more subtle essence for most of us stays
In the depths of the psyche concealed completely.

I would study myself, but just what does that mean?
I must ask myself questions that puzzle me so.
Is myself the perceiver? Or am I that who
Perceives he who’s perceiving? If I follow through
With this interrogation, what truth could I know?
…Consciousness is recursive and clearly obscene?

The mind is a fifth limb. It will grasp and hold on
To the things it perceives. I know that it’s a tool.
It itself is perceived by that which is unnamed.
The true self is a mirror wherein all is framed
In its pureness of being. I’ll take that as cool.
It’s the source of all selfhood from which life is drawn.

Heard Immunity

The Continuance Of Aftermath

On approaching the climax of social disease
Evolution of hate networks reaches its peak
Spreading literal violence throughout the land.
Network Spews is the lifeblood we witness firsthand
Through the acts of the populous whose minds are weak.
Can a nation recover from such times as these?

One America, schizoid, is out of control
Believing insurrection must be the right way.
Funded by evil forces with dark network ties,
The proud group of deplorables truly despise
Anyone who is different, and they must play
Vehemently their ill-assumed psychotic role.

Those who’ve heard that a white country is most evolved
And that people of color are a subspecies
Then believe in a white world where all must adhere
To a whitewashed supremacist doctrine in fear.
In a world such as this, white men do as they please
And the issues of living are never resolved.

That’s the way it should be to the ones who forget
That this nation was built by the sweat of non-whites.
It’s been since commandeered by the human ego.
Network Spews is for people who don’t want to know
What is of the truth, especially civil rights.
Those immune to reality are the big threat.

Let It Go

No Illusion Can Help You

I feel beside myself, yet there is a big hand
That has me by the consciousness. I know not where
Or when it will release me. I wait for the fall
Of my house-of-cards being. The worst of it all
Is that I can’t stop ongoing thoughts of despair
I have no sense of knowing how my life is planned.

I have managed to activate a vibration
Of somethings that I really don’t want in my life,
It seems that as I struggle things only get worse.
Is there reason to think that my life is a curse?
I can’t stop the momentum of personal strife.
Evidence of improvement appears to be none.

Sloppily, my vibration is scattered about
Discipline there’s a lack of in how I offer
To the universe what I believe can come true.
Anything that involves struggle I need not do.
When I do things I don’t want damage can occur
May the spirit who guides me relieve me of doubt.

The big hand of my consciousness of how things are
Can let go of my big self that feels rather small.
Letting Go is my guidance to trust the process.
What’s available to me is instant access
To the wealth of wellbeing that’s here for us all.
The solution to issues in life isn’t far.

Keep Breathing

Go On No Matter What

People say, “Just Keep Breathing; all will turn out fine…”
As if life is a breath test. It drives me insane.

I don’t mean to be cranky… or maybe I do.
I’m awash in confusion. Should my face turn blue
Due to misunderstanding, I’ve nothing to gain.
Crisis times trigger breathing by nature’s design.

That first breath was a doozy. It blew me away
From the one who contained me, for better or worse.
Why should I keep on breathing? It gets rather old.
I can breathe my damned lungs numb. Nothing will unfold
But a room full of hot air. Is my life a curse?
Or do those who can breathe well have something to say?

I take my breath for granted, as many folks do
In the mainstream of living and keeping ends tied
But it’s the only answer to staying alive.
We can never stop breathing. It’s how we survive.
Once the technique is learned, wellness can’t be denied.
Then I’m able to handle what I’m going through.

I can curse like a sailor because I was one.
I’ve screwed up rather royally for one lost soul.
I’ll breathe that along with the fresh air I’m allowed.
Things I’ve done in the past can never make me proud.
I’m alive to the point where I still can be whole.
The decision to breathe is a new life begun.

Racing Thoughts

Formula 1 Brain

So one after the other, they leapfrog around
And create their own business that can’t be resolved
By themselves nor known others. Their quest is futile.
In their race for more heartache each painstaking while,
They prevent me from being more spirit evolved.
What they come up with isn’t at all that profound.

Keeping me wide awake at nights, they have control
Of my very existence. I need to detach
From the process that isn’t a real part of me.
Knowing that it is not me allows me to see
What it is that would be but a more fitting match.
I know that which I don’t want and what makes me whole.

Panic thinking is useless. It serves no purpose.
From that powerful standpoint I’m able to choose
Something else to focus on as hard it may be.
I may regain some control eventually.
It seems to be a gamble. There is much to loose
Because if I do nothing, further I’ll regress.

Then there’s always the body – the final frontier.
Since I know thinking sucks now, I know my breathing
Will provide a diversion and needed relief.
When caught up in a problem, relaxing is chief.
A small pocket of comfort this small act will bring.
Issues still will exist, but stress will disappear.

Before The Mind Rushes In

Peaceful Prelude To Illusion

The First Moments of noticing anything new
Flash within, yet, unnoticed, they then fade away.
Just as quickly, the ego mind wants to rush in
Because it needs to know things so it can begin
To adopt a conception. That is its forte.
Now, well shrouded, these first moments one cannot view.

If one is a professional, use of the mind
Is of immense importance throughout the workday.
If relied on completely though, one may become
Cold to others because the feelings have grown numb.
Circumvent well one can this and still not betray
All the skill and experience which is defined.

The paths of the spiritual healers are such
That their minds are no issue. They have them controlled
So that they reach the person and not the symptom…
Nor a patient or client. The healing comes from
Their connection with spirit. The power they hold
Is one most universal. We all are in touch.

Many times we’re not thinking. The moment we see
Something new, for a brief while, we take it all in.
There’s that space unattended and free of judgement.
Being more conscious of this awareness event
Intertwined with the ego is where to begin
Deepening of the person who I’m meant to be.

New Realities

Brighter Horizons

Things I don’t like are priceless. Their value to me
Is both great and expanding to more clarity.
My desires, by my living, are magnetic waves
That the universe picks up. Each wave then behaves
As solution phase shifted so that easily
Doors to bright New Realities I clearly see.

What I see as a nightmare is just the inverse
Of how I would prefer things. It’s the negative
Of the same image glorified. That does exist.
So this means every time that I get really pissed
Waves are transmitted telling how I’d like to live…
But to dwell on the negative is a strong curse.

What I feel as a negative I must let go.
To be focused intently on the solution
I do when it’s not in my conscious awareness
Just by knowing that the universe will address
Every detail of circumstance. My work is done!
I’m a split personality. It’s good to know.

I arrived here from spirit to play out my role
As a flesh and blood human among the contrast
Made available to me and all who partake.
The spirit helps the human to come more awake
To the positive image, brighter and more vast
Than the human can fathom with its mortal soul.

Calibrating desires is just something I do
Every moment I’m living, hence it’s natural
For this strong harmonizer to blend with discord.
But I must break that habit and start moving toward
The direction unfettered by poor rationale.
I owe this to myself now that I have a clue.

Merging Into Awareness

The Eternal Knowing

No thinking is required in this special moment
Made eternal by spacious light of consciousness
Which makes my awareness possible. My thinking
Wouldn’t add anything to it. It is nothing
But a nest of distraction and utter distress.
Yet I can detach from it by being present.

I’m aware of myself and what is around me.
That is all that is needed. Sublime subtlety
Is the nature of this kind of focusing on
Everything without context. From within is drawn
My true self at its purest most powerfully.
Merging Into Awareness does set my soul free.

Sometimes it’s just not possible to shush the mind.
So in such cases I use the body portals,
Like my breath and all my sensory perceptions.
Presence arises from this. From it I get tons
Of relief from the menacing mental canals
That I often get trapped in. I’m quite the behind.

The power itself doesn’t grow. It’s infinite.
Manifestation in me grows as I’m aware.
The more often this communion I do partake
Greater is the chance that I’ll come fully awake.
When life does something to me that doesn’t seem fair
I’ll respond – not react – with power to do right.

What Really Matters

The Search For Life's Truest Meaning

Seductive and hypnotic is movement of thought
Through the bowels of the gray matter. Deeply ingrained,
My subconscious assumption that this moment now
Is of lesser importance than the next somehow,
Causes me much frustration, in that I’m constrained
To what is nonexistent. In this web I’m caught.

So I hear people speak of This Moment so much.
It is vital I get what the hell these folk mean.
It ain’t all that damned obvious to the novice
How to find in This Moment some measure of bliss.
It don’t take much pretending before I come clean
With my truest of feelings responsive to touch.

What’s important is already here, I must know,
And not in the next moment which does not exist.
Ever presence is consciousness’ only act.
In the place of no substance nor form, the abstract
Shining essence of my true self cannot be missed.
In all that I’ve become, I’ve the need to let go.

Realizing this truth takes some practice for sure.
Everybody inherits the pattern of mind
That lives outside of right now. So practice it takes.
It requires little effort or psychic headaches
To achieve awareness of the transcendent kind.
What matters in This Moment will ever endure.

Choice

The Right Of Free Will

I don’t know where my hiccup decisions come from.
They’re like guttural spasms. The choking of air
Is the constant anxiety. Thinking things through
Only adds more confusion. Whatever I do,
Worrying about worrying while in despair
Is a blend of psychosis that renders me numb.

In my mind there’s a feedback loop endlessly closed.
Thoughts that speed as if race cars are always the same.
Did I take enough time to consider every
Possible thing I should have and confidently?
In a dither of doubt no relief can I claim.
Choices are not decisions. My truth is exposed.

There are infinite data – too much to take in
For any given situation that occurs.
Deciding on an issue by using the mind
May result in catastrophe for my behind.
Doing just as I please is what this self prefers.
Can there be a solution that won’t mete my sin?

Mystical states of consciousness can be achieved
Where there is a natural lightness of feeling
Difficulty is effortless. Life is a breeze.
I’m not at that place yet, but I feel more at ease.
I’m a cloud not misshapen… a God awful thing
That is badly designed. In that, I am relieved.

The awareness state I’m conditioned to resist.
The repugnant sensation of discord creates
Sensory basis for the ego to appear
To convince me that no state is better than fear.
We are not helpless creatures consumed by our fates.
Intuition is something that can’t be dismissed.

Just Attend To Your Breathing

The Life Affirming Function

A delightful companion is always a plus
In the fine art of ‘breath watching,’ as it is called.
It’s a mechanism of the body, we know.
When we pay more attention to it, we will grow
Both in health and in spirit. We can be enthralled
By this motion magnificent for life and thus.

It is the most practiced form of meditation.
It’s so basic and simple while easy to do
Since we do it most constantly yet not aware
Of this God given process. We give much more care
To our outward appearance, but any guru
Would advise more attention to breathing be done.

A sharpness or a keenness begins to ensue
As perfect becomes practice within a time short.
It’s a process amazing most naturally.
One can only get more conscious and completely
Needless of preparation or others’ support.
An increase in awareness will surely accrue.

The perpetual play of my breath, as I see,
The maker of my body holds with a kind hand.
The taker of my being, the same creator
Whose hand I firmly hold until there is no more,
Has no wish to escape. My most vital demand
Is ongoing fulfillment of wanting to be.

It Starts Now

Now Is All There Is

If the whole universe came to be in the past,
It was now then and still is the same as right now.
Every now is one moment wherein we partake
Of the fullness it offers. One’s soul comes awake
By this knowledge most fruitful. One need but allow
Everything that is present to forever last.

Transformation of human consciousness by means
That involve meditation are frustrated by
Believing that I by myself can bring about
States of ultimate knowing while harboring doubt.
Competition among others must signify
Shallowness in one’s motives and mundane routines.

All existence is still beginning presently.
Now trails off like the wake of a ship as it fades
Into what is called past and swiftly disappears.
I must honor the call to relinquish my fears,
Ill perceived mis-conclusions, and awful tirades,
And attend to what is now and ever shall be.

There’s no other beginning point. Right now is it!
Past and future are present and only exist
In the conscious awareness that only now holds.
This moment is the starting point where life unfolds.
No longer a poor stranger afraid and dismissed,
I am born in this moment as I recommit.

Conscious Life Management?

Organized Living?

Today’s topic is relevant as everyday’s,
And these times are especially dark and severe.
Tribalistic behaviors among our species
Reap the karma of having a worldwide disease.
All the while the most ignorant will not adhere
To the ‘useless’ precautions that alter their ways.

One of ten human beings on earth, it’s been said,
Has a conscious awareness of more taking place
Among all the aspects of the body, the mind,
Energy, and emotion. One being aligned
With their daily behaviors knows living in grace.
If such folk ruled the planet would we be misled?

Most compulsive behaviors are not conscious ones,
Rather they aren’t thought out. Clarity isn’t seen.
The live bulk of the body and caverns within
The emotional psyche, to most folks’ chagrin,
Are places where awareness is not all that keen.
It gets lost in the cells where no consciousness runs.

If in fact we were not human eons ago,
We have made quite a journey. All that we have done
To get where we are now may fizzle into waste.
Our most destructive issues will have to be faced
If our evolution is to be then begun.
Naked apes had not much choice, but we’re here to grow.
