Tell A New Story

Close The Old Book

Change my thoughts about money and life as a whole?
Is that hard to do? It depends on the story
I’ve been telling to myself and others I know.
For all that I have done, what do I have to show?
This question doesn’t lead me to any glory.
It will cause my thoughts to spin way out of control.

What then is the solution? I know that money
Is as available as the air I take in
And breathe out. I like thinking about the freedom
That it gives me. I know that the money will come
In good time as soon as I decide to begin
Focusing only on the place I want to be.

I can imagine a lot of money flowing
Into my life experience. I can see how
My feeling about money affects how much comes.
If I want it to flow in uncountable sums
I must Tell A New Story and learn to allow
The abundance that this world to me is showing.

I do get the essence of what I think about.
I can tell by the way I’m feeling whether I
Am focused on money or the gross lack of it.
Positive thoughts about money I must transmit
To the universe. I know that it will comply
With my best wishes. Of this I have not a doubt.

Expect It, And It Shall Be

Keep The Faith

Know your worthiness. You have every right to be
In a state of bliss mostly. In the direction
Of the flow you are pointed. The better you feel,
The more good things come to you. Your life is ideal.
You do not have to justify your having fun
No matter what you’re doing. You’ve learned to be free.

In the past there was struggle. You were not in sync
With your hopes, dreams, and wishes. You could not allow
Abundance and wellbeing. You felt not worthy.
Your self-doubt you have rid yourself of completely.
You have come a long way to the way you are now.
You have taken control of the thoughts that you think.

You are powerful. You have the right to create
Anything you want. The entire universe
Is queued up to assist you in your creation.
You have learned to relax and let it get things done.
You have chosen the right way to fully immerse
Yourself in all its blessings. The feeling is great!

The happier you get, the more potential for
Happiness that you have. With your conscious intent
You have reached the point where you ask and it shall be.
It’s not true that no one can be always happy.
Awareness of how you are feeling will prevent
Your not knowing all the avenues to explore.

There Is No Name For It

Existence Unspeakable

In this universe there is One Great Energy
That there is not a name for. A few that are tried
Like Brahman, and the Tao have a greater meaning
Than does God because that name is often leaning
In peculiar directions. One cannot decide
For oneself what’s the nature of divinity.

One substance is existence. It’s fascinating
That anything came to exist. Much easier,
Then, it would have been had there been nothing at all.
The effort and energy needed isn’t small.
It’s an on and off system. We are, as it were,
And are not at the same time as we do our thing.

An infinity of functions it does contain
And of this elegant suchness all are a part.
Now you see it. Now you don’t. The Yang and the Yin,
Like the crest and the trough and the particle spin,
Are a principle that can be taken to heart.
In the naming of suchness there’s not much to gain.

Good will never once and for all triumph over
Evil. ‘On’ will never finally conquer ‘off.’
By indulging in the illusion we become
Disillusioned. The spirit may grow cold and numb.
Then creation becomes like a persistent cough.
The mind is a place where the nameless can’t occur.

There Is No Name For It

Conscious Nebulous Forces

All that is and that ever was has not a name.
Many have been used, but we’ve become rather bored
With defining and naming something so nameless.
All is all but one substance, and in the process
It evolves all quite seemingly of its accord.
We know too little about where everything came.

It’s an off and on universe. Now you see it.
Now you don’t. It’s the forces of the yang and yin
That define our perceptions of all taking place.
From complete utter nothingness to time and space
That which is ever nameless is where we begin
To get some understanding as it will permit.

“But what if the bad forces win out over good?”
This question comes from ignorance of energy
And its back and forth nature. We tremble in fear.
The potential of living a future austere
Amplifies the illusion of needing to be
In control of the nameless as it’s understood.

Wouldn’t it have been easier had their been not
The first cause of creation and all come to be?
Nothingness is unthinkable. Can it exist
Without something to contrast? That which does persist
Is consciousness eternal and evidently
Some people take delight in giving it much thought.

Just For Two Days

Explore Life's Sensations

Don’t believe your reality. It’s a platform
From which everything bounces into what is new.
Don’t believe that ‘what is’ should be of much concern.
How you feel inside matches the sultry extern.
Give ‘what is’ the attention indeed it is due.
It is past tense yet so contrary to the norm.

Expectation that you have means there’s a desire
With belief at the same place so it is immense.
Don’t rely much on effort. Focus on your mood.
It pays to have a magnificent attitude
So that life is a fairytale filled with suspense.
Every next moment easily will take you higher.

The way to be expectant is to put the past
Where it rightly belongs and to then move forward.
Is there something worth focusing on to distract
You from your strong addiction to matters of fact?
Your confounding reality can be ignored
By attending to your own terrific forecast.

Something else has to be equally compelling
For the grip on ‘what is’ now to give up its hold.
“What’s the feeling I’m reaching for?” Ask this question
All the time for just two days. What will have begun
Is a habit that can be more precious than gold.
You’re worthy of a life that is more fulfilling.

The Work You’ve Done

Benefits Of Accomplishment

You’re beginning to understand and finally
How much love God has for you and all creation.
Victory you can taste in the things you’ve asked for.
You know that as a being, you’ll always want more.
All the work that you’ve done is worth celebration.
Give yourself a big high five, and revel in glee.

You have given up many things holding you back
Like controlling things you know you cannot control
And attention to anything that brings you down.
The excuses you once used for wearing a frown
You have given up for the things that make you whole.
Fear you no longer have nor the feeling of lack.

You had done things the hard way, and half way at best
Even though you’d been wanting to go all the way.
Putting forth so much effort without a reward,
You became disillusioned and easily bored
With the heart of your life’s dream. Indeed you fell prey
To the dark cloud of feeling hopelessly distressed.

Now you do see the light just a little so far.
It is time for you to tell the world your story
Of focus of empowerment and worthiness.
As you feel your way into your growing success
Know that God’s faith in you is what can set you free
To express the magnificence of who you are.
