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.

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.

Indifference

I Just Don't Care

I’m a very cold person if I so believe.
But does it serve me well to go on in this way?
That I do not enjoy it should offer a clue.
I can trick myself into believing it’s true
Just because all alone is how I’d rather stay.
From the world outside mine I deserve a reprieve.

It is fear, I suppose, that keeps me self-contained.
The baser human instinct I cannot predict
In myself nor in others. I’m safe in my cage
Where I’m free to indulge in a counter rampage
To reverse the effects of the thoughts that conflict
With my mental wellbeing which is peace ordained.

I’m a warm hearted, loving, and giving person.
Somewhere deep down inside I know that this is true.
So the opposite feeling which has less power
Yet with some negative momentum will devour
The self-nurturing instinct. The thing I can do
Is examine my ill thoughts. It may not be fun.

All sorts of ideas and strict definitions
Are ingrained in my psyche. They stain my spirit.
I must sift my way through them all and let them go.
They are ideas only. If they cause me woe
Then I know they’re not conducive to keeping fit.
As I purge I’ll remember to keep the good ones.

The Hidden Dimension

Entering Other Worlds

Is there something in common in every culture
That creates within everyone the need for God?
Anyone who has experienced mystery
Knows that there’s a dimension that we cannot see.
The beauty of a mountain or sunset we laud
As the face of divinity. Yet are we sure?

The realization of wonder is something
That all people experience time and again.
The tremendous power of nature we behold
As a force greater than us that can’t be controlled.
We return to something but we cannot know when.
We are left with tons of clues for deciphering.

Throughout God’s evolution in our consciousness
There have been those of violence and compassion
And protectors of kings and queens and their campaigns.
Personification is still locked in our brains
To the degree that we may not ever be done
With the faces of God we create to excess.

God is a manifestation of energy
And the vehicle for it. Continuing war
Among world principalities over issues
Of our faith and anarchy can only confuse
What we know in our souls to be something much more
Than a situation where we act foolishly.

Think Through Your Body

The Marriage Of Mind And Body

There are manifold bodies contained within one
Integrated completely. No such thing as mind
Can exist independently from other ones.
Each one has its own mind, so the whole can have tons
Happening simultaneously if inclined
To reach that state of consciousness. It would be fun.

Some can operate at once on many channels.
Others don’t seem to notice and take for granted
That these folks are amazing in what they can do.
Anyone can achieve it. Sadly, only few
Give it some attention. Then they’re disenchanted.
The spirit may be strong, but the body rebels.

It’s not just in the head. Thinking through the body
Has one sure benefit. One can’t get a headache.
The thousands of things that are always going on
Are by no means confusing. Relying upon
What the cellular presence provides for one’s sake
 Is the path to enlightenment naturally.

There’s a deeper dimension in everybody.
We are each just as capable as anyone
To attain such alignment that brings total peace.
One will notice at first a gradual increase
In the general feeling of wonder and fun.
Get to know all your bodies. Indeed, they’d agree.
