The Secret

Classified Knowledge

You Can’t Make A Mistake. That’s it in a nutshell.
In fact, it’s quite impossible to get it wrong.
You know naturally how your life should unfold,
But society says you must do as your told.
It’s a game we’ve created. We all play along
Not knowing in the long run it makes us unwell.

You are told that you may make mistakes or may not.
It’s a conscious decision once you know the rules.
You must do the right things at the right times and be
Submissive to societal authority.
You are one of the many magnificent fools
Of a culture caught up in a sinister plot.

From childhood we are told of three separate tiers
Of people – top, middle, and bottom. No one can
Exist without the other two. Everybody
Tries to get to the top one unsuccessfully.
There’s the notion that some people are better than
Others, and it’s the basis of most of our fears.

In a constant state of competition we are.
Getting on top of things is our grand obsession.
In another direction you may want to go
As the boredom and signs of ill health start to show.
The game is a problem without a solution.
Once you’ve reached this conclusion you’ve come very far.

Biography of Being

Ever since my childhood I’ve been too much unlike
Other people. I’ve never perceived things the way
They are seen by most others. I do not complain.
For the first time in my life I know I’m insane
But there still is an enormous price I must pay
For the harm that I cause while my mind is on strike.

I cannot get excited about the same things
That would turn on most anyone else without fail.
I’m not sad for the same reasons that others are.
I’ve not felt the same happiness. It’s very far
From that felt by most others in oddest detail.
A victim I have been through my false beginnings.

Everything that I loved I loved all quite alone.
Back when I was a little one loved and cared for
I uncovered for better or worse mysteries
Of existence that nary another one sees.
I know that I am here to experience more
Than the average seeker. My strange life has shown.

From the natural places this earth shows to me
Come the questions and answers that are of essence
To the best of my knowing that all is okay.
This world I am a part of. The part that I play
May seem small but in essence it’s rather immense.
All that I must do now is be happy to be.
