Crank Up The Momentum

Go For The Thrill

I imagined a day filled with fun and laughter,
And it was so. I set myself up for feeling
Absolutely fantastic, and it came to be.
I experienced moments of sheer ecstasy.
I look forward only to what is appealing.
In this way, I’m an efficient feeling crafter.

There had been no subterfuge to the momentum
Created by my wanting my day to go well.
“I like this, and I like this also.” This is how
I was able to bring power into my now.
Being happy is like casting a magic spell
On myself. Much resistance I have overcome.

In the past, I had lived life quite differently.
“I like this, but not that so much,” I would express
To the listening universe. I would receive
So much of ‘not that so much’ that I would believe
Not that much is worth liking. I would acquiesce
To the false notion that something is wrong with me.

It’s like priming a pump. I create a vacuum
To draw forth the good feelings and keep them coming.
Once the water gets moving, it will continue.
There is little more efforting I need to do.
I believe that I do have adequate plumbing
For the well. It’s a factor that I must assume.

This Race Called Life

All Life As One

Once upon a time there was a young fellow who
Was athletic. He had a hunger for success.
Seemingly it was all about winning for him.
He decided to run in a race on a whim.
Competition would bring him extreme happiness.
Accepting the challenge was the right thing to do.

People gathered to see the race. One wise old man
Who attended was quiet while all others cheered
As the boy came in first place, but the boy was proud.
All the cheers and excitement were blissfully loud,
But the old man was silent which was rather weird.
He did not appear to be an avid sports fan.

Another race was called sometime after the first.
Two young fit challengers the boy did overcome,
And the crowd was ecstatic. The old man was not.
To the young boy this silence did matter a lot.
“Where on earth is this quiet old man coming from?
Would it matter to him if I did but my worst?”

The wise man offered him two opponents who were
Elderly and disabled. “Now run with these two.”
But the boy was perplexed. The old man insisted.
The boy won, but the excitement that existed
With the crowd was no longer, except for a few.
This is not the reaction the boy would prefer.

In This Race Called Life, who is running next to you?
Are they weaker? Do you help them to cross the line?
When we all win together, that is the best race.
What the crowd cheers is giving a loving embrace
To your fellow contestants in life. You will shine
As a person. Do consider this point of view.

Get The Momentum Going

Keeping The Pump Primed

It feels good to have fun. This is easy to say.
The sheer simplicity of this declaration
Is that it’s not disputed by those who are sane.
Everyone understands. There’s no tax on the brain.
The pursuit of a good thing is always begun
With a happy mindset at the start of the day.

It feels good to pre-pave an exciting time out
With some friends. I imagine a fairly nice day
With lots of fun and laughter, and it shall be so.
The best way I know to get momentum to flow
Is to find something easy and then try to stay
Positive in my thinking. Can there be some doubt?

As the day unfolds, what I like I’ll acknowledge…
And the next, and the next thing that’s going my way.
In no time the momentum has gotten to be
To the point where I experience ecstasy.
If it’s practiced enough it becomes like child’s play.
In this reality I’m on the leading edge.

I cannot be ambiguous nor objective.
I can’t say, “I like this, but I don’t care for that.”
It will kill the momentum. Like priming a pump

I draw grace from my inner well. It’s no big jump
To the state of enjoyment from where I am at.
This for me is a most logical way to live.

Eye Of The Storm

From A Perspective of Peace

In the calm at the center of each person’s soul
In the land of enormous freedoms and the home
Of a broken mixed family fast on the brink
Of the ultimate squabble, one cannot but think
All is caught in a pivotal pointed syndrome
As severe as the dickens. We haven’t been whole.

But compared to what may come, this time is our grace
Period for deciding what has to be done
To repair all the damage and cursed sentiment
For what had been most sacred. The need to prevent
The collapse of democracy for everyone
Is aggravated so by our issues of race.

The vision twenty-twenty is that of the eye
Of the storm in the distance. The time that it takes
‘Til it blows past our consciousness cannot be known.
People exercise free will and act out alone.
Some have taken a big gamble. What are the stakes
When the system of justice is an alibi?

We are crossing a threshold into something new
To our souls and our psyches. The need to worry
Is for those of aggression, contention, and fear.
For the rest of us it remains perfectly clear
That there is no preventing what must come to be.
We have turmoil and subsequent truth to get to.

Clear Bad Karma

Spiritual Shortcut

The word Karma means action. Whose? That would be mine.
The most dynamic way to exist as beings,
Karma I live through is responsibility
That I have for my own life, and naturally,
It extends as far outward among offerings
As my strongest vibration. With this I am fine.

My life is my own making. That’s what the word means.
My successes and failures are all but my own.
Anytime I can see this in full clarity
Is a time for the crafting of my destiny.
Actions past for which my unclean soul must atone
I can safely call fated as important scenes.

Since my life is my karma no one else takes charge.
The word ‘blame’ has no meaning and is a poor game.
Those who think that their lives are caused from the outside
Have it fairy assed backwards. Were I they, I’d hide
For the lame act that they perform only brings shame
They’re likely to encounter while roaming at large.

My thoughts and my emotions, actions, and focus
Are then orientated to get me where I
Need to go in the business of daily living.
Life is lived from the inside, and in its giving,
I embrace all the drama and not wonder why
I have less time for negative things to discuss.
