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.

Your Value

Self Worth

To the people who feel like they’ve lost their value,
Do believe what you’re feeling but not that you are
Made less worthy because of your circumstances.
It may be that you’ve screwed up in your finances.
How you’re treated due to it leaves a psychic scar
On the consciousness present. What is there to do?

If I went to the store with a one dollar bill,
And I saw something that costs a dollar with tax,
What would be the bill’s value? It would be the same
As the item referred to. With it I would claim
The thing without performing unnatural acts
With the sales staff. Nothing more I’d need to fulfill.

What if I balled the dollar bill up? Would it be
Still worth one dollar? Would it be eighty five cents
Due to its being crumpled? That would not be true.
If I stomped on the dollar and tore it, would you
Still accept it without any hint of offense?
The answer is you would take it most probably.

Life presents us with issues that we must get through.
In the process we may feel severely beaten,
Stomped upon, crumpled up, and then cast to the curb.
Your value is unchanged. Know that you are superb
No matter your condition. Your life will sweeten
In the recognition of the value of you.

The Most Important Story

The Greatest Tale To Be Told

Once there was an old man who did not feel worthy
Of the slightest of good luck or the smallest chance
Of a blessing because of a mountain of guilt.
Psychological walls over time had been built.
Those whom I’ve harmed should know that I’m not in a trance
But my excuse is absolute insanity.

I’m in pain. The body hurts. I’m coming of age
Where I see things more clearly than ever before.
I find myself pre-living a full life review.
How can my thoughts be positive? What can I do
To feel better? Is there something I can explore
That will help me to not be a fool upon stage?

A complete separation from the emotion
Of the pain is accomplished through conscious intent.
I can manifest general feelings of hope.
If I get to remain here I’m willing to cope
With the mess that I’ve made and to somehow repent
For a life that was mostly spent in delusion.

In the face of what is unwanted I can still
Feel the goodness life offers, and I might as well.
Punishing myself for what I’ve done can’t be done.
Once I have wrapped my heart around this I’ve begun
To climb out of my peculiar version of hell.
Making this story right shall relieve me of ill.

Breaking News

Alien Faces Of Spirit

They are coming. Some are already here by now.
Why they’ve come is a learning and teaching exchange
Exercise in the making. It’s kept top secret.
Humankind can’t accept its own, and with regret,
Populations in general can’t deal with strange
Off the earth kinds of beings. Our hearts won’t allow.

Cultural shock, social disorientation…
Would compound the psychoses that eat at our souls
If we were to gain knowledge of all that goes on.
If our hatred for one another could be gone
Then no threats are perceived, and we could play the roles
Of galactic ambassadors second to none.

While we’re in waiting for all things to be revealed
May it be beneficial to inventory
Our spiritual assets? Our changing our ways
May happen or may not. They’re not here to appraise
For the purpose of conquering. To let them be
Is the wisest decision that must be concealed.

Those who’ve gone further into the darkness may find
That eventually they’re able to see light.
There’s some benefit to having experienced
Suffering the delusion of for and against
And the confounding issues of what’s wrong and right.
In that they are not hostile we find peace of mind.

The Laughing Heart

The Sheer Joy Of Living

Your life is your own life. Be as bright as can be
And as light as the feather that tickles the soul.
Do not let it be clubbed into dank submission.
Be always on the watch. There are ways to have fun
As there always are ways out of life’s rigmarole.
Yes, there is a light somewhere. It’s for you to see.

Though the light is not brilliant, it beats the darkness
By infinity’s measure. So, be on the watch.
The gods will offer you many chances. Know Them.
You must be of the right heart. You may not condemn.
If you do it may leave an indelible splotch
On the memory of your life in the process.

You can’t beat death, but sometimes you can do just that
Through the life you are living. And the more often
You choose to learn to do it, more light there will be.
Your life is your life fully and absolutely.
Never mind about where in the past it has been.
That would mean that your heart has to wear a hard hat.

Know your life while you have it. You are marvelous.
The gods wait to delight in you wholeheartedly.
Your expressing of joy is their confirmation
Of their masterful work which has only begun.
It’s your life. Live with laughter that people may see
That your angelic presence is always a plus.

The Meaning Of Life

Fundamental Purpose

If one has but a ‘why’ one can bear any ‘how.’
As suggested by Nietzsche, life is very hard.
Does this mean I am tested in all that I do?
Certainly! There is darkness I must look into
For the purpose of healing whatever is scarred
By neglect of my visiting outside of now.

In the darkest of places, if I can still find
A faint glimmer of something, I’ll know it’s real light.
Life’s malevolence is ineradicable.
The intent and extent is unfathomable.
I need Sustaining Meaning to keep me alright.
If well-armed with some virtue, then I am aligned.

A life instinct is meaning. I need a reason
To get out of bed even on terrible days.
Nobleness in one’s purpose is not optional.
If one has not, then one is most vulnerable
To the clutches of evil and all of its ways.
Clutching on to some purpose, true life is begun.

I’ll get out and do something. It may turn out wrong,
But at least I’ll have learned then correct my mistakes.
My remaining in stasis leads to getting old
And decrepit from laziness. Purpose is gold.
Life is hopelessly woven in fear and heartbreaks.
Pointed in some direction, I am somewhat strong.
