What Did You Forget?

Trust Your Memory

You can bug people beautifully by asking,
“What Did You Forget?” They may suspect that they must
Remember something important. They may not be
Receptive to considering it carefully.
To a new way of thinking one could well adjust.
Be a part of a wholesome reawakening.

What’s the most obvious thing one must remember
In each waking moment? What’s the most forgotten
Truth that causes confusion within the psyche?
Who on earth can answer these questions correctly?
There is no disadvantage in knowing not when
Someone will leave in your soul a glowing ember.

Someone says that he’s Tim Jones, another, Joe Blow.
These are lies that are fed to us when we are young.
Remember back before you were programmed to be
A person and a product of society.
Now into a world of illusion you are flung.
Be more receptive to what you already know.

Simply the fabric and structure of existence
Itself you are. There is a big conspiracy
To ignore who you really are deep down inside.
The false ego must be constantly gratified
By the faulty structures that allow it to be.
We become exhausted living under pretense.

Be Impeccable With Your Word

You Speak As You Live

More important is your word than most anything
Because your word is your ultimate destiny.
It paints for you a portrait specific and true
That the world gets to see more than all that you do.
Be as deliberate as you know you can be
And thoughtful in what you are speaking or writing.

Have a keen sense of what to say. With your intent
You deliver your message to all who may hear.
Your impeccability is all about you.
If you intend well, then wellness will follow through.
Use your energy for truth. Whatever you fear
Can be sensed in your message. This you can’t prevent.

The emotional poison that festers within
Can be cleaned out completely – almost like magic
If with yourself you’re sincere in all that you say.
Even something as simple as, “Have a nice day”
You can say with conviction. There’s no special trick.

Now is always a good time for you to begin.

Watch the world change around you as you begin to
Speak with substance and honor to all that you know
To be true. There is no reason ever to lie
If to yourself this gem of spirit you apply.
Your words do represent you wherever you go.
It is always refreshing to learn something new.

Abide In Me

Give Me Your Unending Trust

Remain stable and fixed in a state of oneness
With all things because they exist all within you.
When you see yourself as no longer separate
Or in isolation, you will appreciate
A newfound sense of freedom. How can this be true
If one’s life is the epitome of distress?

Consciousness is a shared phenomenon. No one
Is apart from it. From the level of spirit,
Human beings can feel much less isolated,
But because of our nature we’re easily led
To hold fast to the notion of self. We submit
To belief in separateness in the long run.

It’s not natural for us to see everything
As One thing. A unique person standing apart
From all others is how the self must be perceived
Unless some kind of enlightenment is achieved.
Individual expression is at the heart
Of the purpose of all that is now happening.

As you abide in me as I abide in you,
Something magical happens. Connection is made
With the consciousness of everything that exists.
We can meditate on how each person consists
Of all others and everything. Be not afraid
To explore this most enlightening point of view.

Things Will Go Your Way

All Is Well

Everything that is manifest at one time was
A vibration, then a thought, before it became
What we now perceive with our physical senses.
Is it wrong that our belief only commences
When the actual manifestation we claim?
Yes, it’s so according to spiritual laws.

The whole universe was at one time only thought –
A consensus of intent of nonphysical
Entities, and their focus keeps things in order.
What we see as chaotic just doesn’t concur
With the overall view, yet a part of you shall
Stay in touch with the unseen of which you’re begot.

You can’t define love in manifestational
Terms, but you can surely feel it, and you know it.
Yet it’s only a feeling you have inside you.
It Is Real. Now, the only thing you have to do
Is align with that vibration. You will permit
Yourself to take on a positive rationale.

You challenge life to show you its weaknesses so
You can yearn for the strengths. You don’t want to be bored.
You want to be exhilarated and to feel
The passion that’s within you that no one can steal.
Being turned on to life shall be your just reward.
Be open to what the universe wants to show.

Do Not Love Half Lovers

Accept Nothing But All

What is wholeness? It’s something I don’t think about
Very often. I take for granted everything
Is complete in its essence until something goes
Not quite my way then I am stuck in the shadows
Where my perceptions of lack leave me wondering
What has happened that I am consumed with such doubt.

I Do No Love Half Lovers. I take this advice
Knowing that my life as it is I can enjoy.
It is both exhilarating and magical.
If I decide to live my life fully I shall
Have the wisdom to create and not to destroy.
If I am to enjoy life I’ll pay the full price.

What often happens is that many of us live
By other people’s rules and their expectations
Instead of by our own vision and set of rules.
Each of us has a unique set of molecules.
Those who reflect on what they wish for are the ones
Who inherit this earth and have so much to give.

For my life, where do I draw the line in the sand?
What do I dream about, and what do I sand for?
What truly matters to me more than anything?
Until I map out my own path what I will bring
To the table is something that life will ignore.
Anything halfway done has no room to expand.

What Is Consciousness?

Definition Of Being

Existence, as is known, is one unbroken thing.
All That Is contains everything that can be known
And unknown. There is another version of it.
That knows not itself at all. It has not a bit
Of consciousness. The feeling of being alone
Is all that this region of existence can bring.

What exactly is consciousness? It’s awareness
Of oneself by knowing what is not of the same
Awareness that oneself is or has. Existence
Contains all that there is. It needs no self-defense.
Consciousness is awareness by another name
Whether or not it has the desire to express.

All That Is creates within itself otherness.
It’s aware of itself through all that it creates.
It’s a kind of reflective energy pattern.
Consciousness means that one is able to discern
Individual selfhood and how it relates
To the otherness. It’s an eternal process.

Everything reflects consciousness. It is the way
That all of creation can become self-aware.
 Every creature is seeing through the eyes of God.
The mechanics of it all is nothing slipshod.
Infinite are the points of view one can compare
To oneself. All existence evolves as it may.

Space And Time

The Clockwork Of Existence

“When did ‘all that is’ think of ‘another’?” I ask,
And “What was there before that?” Does anyone know?
These are called ‘spacetime’ questions and have no answer.
Because of this they are but a doubt enhancer.
Fatefully existential, it is with sorrow
That our reality is a thing to unmask.

Space and time have their geometric qualities.
All events can be calculated where the two
Sets of numbers get intermixed in such a way
As to show they are linked. It is believed that they
Form a completed spacetime puzzle. It is true
That one can understand this with relative ease.

Each one separate and both together are called
A continuum. There are no missing spaces
And all instants of time exist. All are in place.
Every particle that exists in time and space
Can be traced, and the world of science embraces
This idea completely. Indeed they’re enthralled…

…As am I. I’m no scientist. I’m just someone
Who is part of this puzzle. Our spacetime is part
Of ‘all there is.’ The reverse can never be true
So the questions one might ask, carefully thought through,
Can be answered intuitively from the heart.
Contemplating existence can be lots of fun.

Existence Is A Relationship

The Give-And-Take Nature Of Being

Two phases of a single process is a way
To perceive oneself and the world. Unfamiliar
And unfashionable is this thinking to some.
They have feelings of doubt that they can overcome.
Science has proven that this is the way things are.
Notions contrary to this are not here to stay.

Obsolete is the thinking that man is the head
Of nature, yet the naturalists are always
Fighting nature because they do not understand
What it means to be ‘head.’ It does not mean command.
Our racial evolution has seen some delays
Perhaps due to negative beliefs we’re force fed.

Every creature is head of nature in its turn
Because each creature creates the world in its own
Image. All existence is a relationship
Between selves and the world. We need only equip
Ourselves with understanding. Alas we are prone
To discard any common sense we may discern.

No movement of nature constitutes existence
Until it’s related to neurological
Complexes of its creatures. The Complex belongs
To the same word as the sun. We’re meant to sing songs
Of elation. Our recognizing of this shall
Pave the way for a life of wonder and suspense.

Why Is This Happening?

The Purpose Of Quantum Change

We engage the conundrum. Too much here goes wrong.
Reaching out for help with my writing I am cursed
By brute force to become a citizen of hell.
So, to me, it seems this world is under the spell
Of ballistic aggression. I was at my worst
Of spiritual wellness. I did not feel strong.

This event, among many, remains in my craw.
Severe stomach issues cannot be diagnosed
Because they are in essence psychosomatic.
My actions are a sign that I’m mentally sick.
I know I’m not alone. The whole world is sclerosed
In a consummate puzzle of nature’s faux pas.

But for the grace of God I become infamous.
To be known as a danger or risk to others,
I’m unconsciously fearful of speaking loudly.
What I have to say is not for others to see
Until some kind of huge transformation occurs.
There is nothing about my writing to discuss.

What I am or I am not vibrationally
Brings about an explicit expression of things
That are either despicable or wonderful.
I must know that my words have not much of a pull
In this real world of monumental happenings.
The unfinished enigma becomes part of me.

Start To Trust

There Is Nothing To Fear

To say that there’s no hope is abomination.
In the face of reality I harbor fear
Not for my own existence but for humankind.
Squashing manifestations, I am so inclined
To believe in a future profanely austere.
My feeling in this moment cannot be undone.

It’s because I have practiced micromanaging
And controlling conditions. I do not yet trust
What the universe can do and does constantly.
What we do here is minuscule compared to the
Planets spinning in their orbits. It seems I must
Seek a clearer understanding of everything.

There’s a difference between believing that I
Have to figure out all the components and make
Them assemble themselves in the most preferred way
Or to just understand there are forces at play
That will yield what I’m after. I’m now wide awake
So that I recognize goodness when it comes by.

Everything is always and ever working out
For me, and the source within me knows what I need.
It is logical that I sustain a level
Of alignment wherein I am free to revel
In the good that there is instead of catfish feed.
Things eventually will improve, I’ve no doubt.

One Last Thing

Get Happy!

The vortex of creation is a search engine
For the infinite universe. Many search terms
Represent our emotions. Each generous smile
Generates a vibration that is most worthwhile
For attracting the good life. Your feeling confirms
All the grace you’re allowing to find its way in.

So find something to bask about. Appreciate
Something you love already, then do it some more.
Meditation is also a tried and true way
To get into that vortex and hopefully stay.
Many good things about life there are to explore.
There are many avenues to your feeling great.

You have done all the legwork and all the sifting
And through data collection you’ve put it all there –
A lifetime of hopes, wishes, and dreams to come true.
There is One Last Thing that you are required to do.
Just let go and Get Happy. Take in the fresh air
 And let the universe do the heavy lifting.

Life is for your expansion. All that may occur
And how you feel about it, even the contrast,
Causes you to expand into a newer place.
The discord and injustice one cannot erase
But your inner alignment can keep you steadfast.
You can always decide to feel as you prefer.

Everything Is Ripe And Ready

Beholding The Harvest

The world seems to be broken to little old me.
It would take no convincing that I could be wrong.
Some would say that it’s ‘varied’ instead of deranged.
I would like to see that way. Can my view be changed
In an instant after having lived for so long
Witnessing human nature as gross as can be?

Yes, the glass is half empty and also half full.
But of what? It’s a question that begs to be asked.
Wine of wisdom or wickedness… or something worse?
All that happens is because the world is diverse
Too much so for too many. The proudly unmasked
Are the perpetrators of some share of the bull.

Yet amid the mass psychosis I understand
That the kitchen is well stocked with ingredients
Of all kinds. If I don’t want tabasco sauce in
The pie that I am making, I would not begin
Protesting its existence. That wouldn’t make sense.
Where is there room for our consciousness to expand?

Well, that isn’t my problem. I’ll not make it so.
I could join groups against tabasco sauce, but why?
Focusing my attention on what pleases me
Still remains a most significant remedy.
Empathy for the tormented I can’t deny.
There’s a lot about this world that I need not know.

Open Doors

Many Opportunities

The balance of the universe vibrates between
What exists and the lack of it. If I’m able
To identify something I truly desire
Then the absence of this thing I want to acquire
Does exist. It’s important to remain stable
And to practice some positive mental hygiene.

From the point of my saying that I want something,
Through my thinking about it, one or the other
Side I give more attention to. What comes to be
Then depends upon which one feels better to me.
Only it or the lack of it can but occur.
This concept does not have to be mystifying.

Feeling lack about what I want only delays
Its arrival in my life. I’ll give attention
To my reasons for wanting it and my belief
That its coming is imminent. I’ll find relief
In my trusting the universe to get things done.
I can maintain my balance in myriad ways.

But the best way to open doors to everything
That I find most delightful is to acknowledge
Now the positive aspects of what I’m living.
The universe is intent on its giving
Whatever is asked of it. On this leading edge
Of creation, I find my life most fulfilling.

Hollow Earth?

Geocentric Doubt

Hollow Earth is the product of the hollow mind.
That is just my opinion, but let me be clear.
If I loathe my reality, I will create
One that is with the exception of fear and hate.
It would stay just that way until humans appear
To defile what exists there as we are inclined.

We’re a conqueror species. When we ‘colonize’
We wreak all kinds of havoc on everything there
Killing off those that were there before the onslaught
Of new civilization thinking we have brought
A better way of living. The pretense of care
Is disgusting to those who would call themselves wise.

Existential dilemmas produce psychoses
Of variety infinite. If there’s a place
That is better than this one we must stay away
Until our consciousness raises. It may someday.
We are crippled by issues within our own race
And we’re overcome by the compulsion to seize.

Many theories and legends come from Atlantis.
Mermaids, dragons, and other creatures do exist
But at higher frequencies. We are not aware
Of the world they inhabit, and we cannot share
Their reality. It’s hard for us to resist
Conjuring fantasies most would surely dismiss.

Dare To Dream

The Universe Through The Eyes Of Children

In this world full of wonder it’s so nice to know
That my freedom to dream is my God given gift
That I then give to others. It’s not my concern
What they do with what is given. All that I learn
About life supports always a positive shift
In my thinking. In this simple way I must grow.

Many people dream big dreams and small, but often
Negative beliefs and definitions keep some
From pursuing them. What exactly holds them back
Are the reasons things won’t work and feelings of lack.
But with creative effort they can overcome
Self-defeating activity time and again.

Like a child I have always been… quite immature
In the ways of the real world. My dreams are my own.
But to share them with others in humility
Is by now what is left of the best part of me.
What I have done to others hurts me to the bone.
A most vivid pre life review I shall endure.

This is not the whole story that I hope to tell.
It indeed is unending as I reach the end
Of a physical chapter in eternity.
It’s an honor reporting how I came to be.
The more hell that I take now the less I will spend
Catching up on my karma. I yearn to be well.

All that I dare to dream has already come true
In the moment that I realize it is so.
So, to now keep my focus on the final one
I have faith that I will get a whole lot more done
In the way of atonement. This life of sorrow
Is an elegant picture of what not to do.

After Death

Continuing Consciouness

Consciousness is eternal. It’s all one can say
Without clarity suffering a severe blow.
From my limited perspective I cannot see
Past the game and illusion that happens to be
Something that I agreed to. I’m not meant to know
But a tiny bit – enough to get through the day.

Timelessness is a concept. It is also real.
The idea is for me. The reality
Is of infinite intelligence. When I die
I’ll awaken from time and space. Never will I
Not have worlds of experience. I am To Be
Here and now with my true self only to reveal.

But in order for existence to continue
There has to be some semblance of the illusion.
It’s more flexible and less rigid after death.
Yet this game I will play ‘til I take my last breath.
I do not favor Thanatos. I just have fun
Delving into odd places to entertain you.

Time and space do have meaning on the other side.
Life here is made of billions of frames per second.
Only one at a time I am meant to act out
Even though I’m projected in all without doubt.
It will be a new game when my soul is beckoned
By the force that begot me. I am satisfied.

A Powerful Message

You Are Everything

Powerful is your essence. The eternal flame
That is you shall never be extinguished by you
Or by anyone else. You are the universe.
You may feel sometimes that existence is a curse,
But the fact that you are here can offer a clue
To the confounding puzzle that has not a name.

You are infinite spirit, body, mind, and heart,
And a heartfelt expression of the infinite.
You are thought and the dream become reality.
The fabric of existence wanted you To Be.
The divine spark that you are remains ever bright

You’re the whole of creation as well as one part.

The nature of eternity you understand.
A conscious decision was made by the divine
That confirms your creation out of perfection.
You maintain by your focus a strong connection
To the God force within you. You are by design
An expression of worthiness, and you were planned.

This moment is eternal and all that can be.
From within it you are born into here and now.
Now has always existed and ever shall be.
Is it not time that you acted accordingly?
It is up to you only to choose to allow
All that you are made up of to be completely.

Do One Simple Thing

Changing Life's Story

In the moment one recognizes a desire
There are two simultaneous acknowledgements.
One is having that something. The other is not.
People put their focus on the latter a lot.
When this happens it brings on the worst of events.
This duplicity about things does life require.

The balance of the universe lies though therein.
All creation is twofold. Each has within it
The potential of the thing not manifesting
And, of course, the good feeling that having does bring.
Knowing which is the better requires not much wit
And to choose to feel bad is a terrible sin.

I add to one side or the other through the day
As my thoughts become random and infiltrating
Which do I want to focus on? That is easy,
But I act to my detriment unconsciously.
I can pay attention to what makes my heart sing,
Then to negative emotion I won’t fall prey.

I’ll acknowledge the positive aspects always
As my life keeps unfolding. It opens the door
To every opportunity. Doors remain closed
If I keep on thinking the thoughts that are opposed
To the thing that I want more than ever before.
I can change my life story to one of some praise.

What Did I Forget?

The Essentials of Mental Functioning

By nature not forgetful, as one would prefer,
A clear minded existence – one rich and fulfilled
Is the daily experience. So on this day
I remember the thinking that gets in the way
Of my best understanding. Alive and self-willed,
I’ve control over everything that must occur.

I was told who I am and was given a name
To be used as a handle. I am a game piece
On the boardwalk of being, but is this all true?
I identify not with the essence I knew
As an infant arriving, but now I release
All the past acts committed that have caused me shame.

Letting go of the old thoughts makes room for the new.
Selves maintain the conspiracy that they create.
Self-imposed purgatory, psychotic and vile,
I can get rid of also. My spirit, meanwhile,
Never loses its memory yet still feels great.
There is limited time to do what I must do.

…And that is to remember what self has forgot.
Way deep down inside I’m the fabric and structure
Of existence itself. We are all undefined,
But the name that we give ourselves is humankind.
What indeed but self-knowledge can make life more pure?
All I need is the truth in whatever is sought.

The Real Me

The Self Undefined

I pretend to be someone significantly small
Compared to who I really am. Poor little me
Is afflicted with beingness. Can I awake
From this dream of my selfhood? Was it a mistake
That the universe carelessly caused me to be?
My flirtation with waking up leads to my fall.

What the whole universe is doing I do too.
Waking up is the realization that I
Am something that the whole universe does just as
The wave is something that the ocean does. Life has
Dualistic convergence. I exemplify
All there is as one being with one point of view.

Not like being locked in a dark room forever
Will it be when I die. That’s not experience.
Nonexistence everlasting is so absurd.
Only from fearful people is such a thing heard.
When I wake up from this life the next will commence,
And this self that I am now will exist no more.

Consciousness is continuous. As people die,
More come into existence. I am every one
But can only experience one at a time.
As I am this one now, my awareness is prime,
And I know that I will never get it all done.
I’ve respect for the laws with which I must comply.

Existence Is A Relationship

The Joy of Spiritual Alignment

That humans are irrelevant is a notion
That is not of good fashion and unfamiliar.
Man believes he has dominion over nature
But the acts of some humans are vile and impure.
In due time we may leave an indelible scar
On the face of the planet. We may be undone.

It’s a simple idea, but understanding
Is one bit of a challenge. Yet actually,
Every creature is head of its own universe
And all make up this world in the way we disburse
Our life owning perceptions. A certain degree
Of acceptance of this is a wonderful thing.

This world is made up of all its many creatures
And their conscious awareness of all they perceive.
It’s an act of creation just being alive
So that our interacting is enough to drive
The process of existence. A grand interweave
Is the heart of creation with many features.

Each creature creates the world in its own image.
Existence is relationship with the cosmos
Through the vast neurological complex each has.
Evolution occurs for us just as long as
Our behavior on earth becomes less bellicose.
Each of us comes to be by the will to engage.

Setting Goals

Aiming At Targets

There are goals and there are wishes. The difference
Is that wishes have no energy behind them.
But our goals are infused with our life giving force,
And they have to be written down clearly, of course.
If they’re not written, then dissolution will stem
From them not being realized. Does this make sense?

Write it down in first person and in present tense
Like it’s happened already, and isn’t it grand!
If you do this each morning, after thirty days
You’ll achieve more than six months’ worth with your old ways.
Every evening, revisit to check where you stand.
Do develop this habit for blessings immense.

Ask your self these two questions: “Have I done things right
To move me more toward the thing I most desire?
And what would I do differently if I could?”

Your self-confidence rises indeed as it should.
There’s no limit to blessings that you will acquire.
All the while you are carefree and bask in delight.

“It ain’t bragging if you’ve done it,” and you’ve done more
Than this time space reality wants or expects.
You’ve made progress by being the person you are.
Keep your attitude positive, and you’ll go far.
Setting goals should be simple and should not perplex
One right back into wishing mode just as before.

Seventeen Seconds

A Miracle's Creating In Moments

Seventeen is the number of seconds it takes
To create some momentum from one focused thought.
In that bit of time, can I think just of one thing
Without measuring pros and cons and what might bring
On a rabid complexity where mind is caught
In a game of survival that’s played at high stakes?

After holding a single thought consistently,
It gains attraction power. Thoughts most similar
Coalesce and get stronger within the spirit.
Energized, the emotions will play and not quit.
And there is not a danger of going too far
As the source of all being is much part of me.

Another seventeen seconds… then, another…
After sixty eight seconds, emotion runs high
And impulses come flooding in from everywhere.
Manifesting the good feeling puts me right there
Where the universe notices. No longer shy,
All the life I’m entitled to has to occur.

I can’t deal with conditions, but feelings I will
Change exclusive to anything that’s going on
Which is outside my sacred self who is at peace.
Every bit of the struggle I need to release
To the cosmos for processing. Much fear is gone
By performing this exercise just for the thrill.

Wonder

The Zest In Life

On a rock unimportant that circles a star
Insignificant on the outer edges of
A small galaxy nestled away in deep space
Is a petri dish species called the human race.
It’s a feeling of Wonder. We happen to love
This bizarre circumstance no matter who we are.

…At least, that’s how I think other folk would respond
To the weird situation consciousness is in.
I know some people tune that right out of their minds
And rely on fake thrills and rubbish of all kinds.
Insignificance blossoms until I begin
Noticing everything to which all have a bond.

This rock produces people as the apple tree
Generates tons of apples throughout its life span.
Alien life would find us most significant.
All that remains peculiar is also brilliant.
Can my eyes of a child make me a better man?
They were given to me so that I choose to see.

Between faith and belief, there’s a wide difference.
To believe is to wish. It’s a kind of a creed
Or a fervent hope that a certain thing is so.
But faith means there are things that I don’t have to know.
Hanging on to the rigidity at light speed,
The sensation of floating describes my suspense.

Death Is Fiction

...A Tiny Chapter in the Story of Eternity

In my life, have I ever died? Did I come back?
I can say that I’ve not had that experience.
Nor do I know another who’s done such a trick.
People come up with stories, then lay it on thick
To all ears that will hear them at their own expense
When their weak minds are susceptible to attack.

Have I ever met someone supposedly dead –
An ethereal wisp of a faint silhouette…
Or a form of some essence apparently true?
If I heard voices, folks would ask, “What’s Wrong With You?”
So, I’d never admit that. I’d have deep regret

If the dead spoke to me and I heard what they said.

I have not seen or met one beyond the doornail
Nor has anyone else with feet flat on the ground.
It takes imagination, special connection,
Or some measure of both before faith has begun
To depart from reality where all is bound
By the strict laws of physics that always prevail.

So, where does this idea come from that I’ll die?
The nonsequitur notion is fiction at best
Created by the limited view I allow.
There is life after life in the eternal now.
I shall not be accustomed to being at rest.
Death is merely a fairytale most will deny.

There Is No Insecurity

Well Worth Repetition

If God so clothed the ladybugs why should I fear
That I might become needy in ways that demean
Self-respect and life purpose? My faith tank is low.
Since Jesus is the boss’s son, shouldn’t I know
He’s also my big brother? Does that sound obscene?
Only that which is positive do I adhere.

He would not have been put to death in India,
Where the people believe we’re all God in disguise.
They would just have accepted him as a wise one.
But the task put upon him would not have been done
Were he not among wilder folk and much less wise
And with perverse attachments to harsh Roman law.

Today knowledge is plentiful as it has been
Throughout all human history. Teachings abound
For the self’s true awakening. Why do I wait?
Is it fear that my ego will not feel so great
Since it’s only a concept and nothing profound?
The chance to think of acting will come once again.

Transformation of myself into unattached
Selflessness is impossible. That is because
I have selfish reasons for wanting to do so.
In the death of the fake self the true one will grow
In accordance with all the spiritual laws.
In a nest of security my soul is hatched.

The Biggest Joke Of All

The Illusory Duo

Jokes I play on myself are imaginative.
If it weren’t for my trick self, I’d have none at all.
Some say I should get rid of it, But I cannot,
Because it thinks like I do. I’m all that it’s got.
Mostly it takes the big roles. I’m left with the small.
I ask myself if this is the right way to live.

But, alas, it can’t answer. It thinks everything
Is an intricate puzzle it only can solve.
When it can’t, it’s frustrated, as if it exists
As a viable entity. On it persists
In its ‘it-centric’ world where all things must revolve.
Onto some sense of purpose this person must cling.

So, there’s no getting rid of this subsequent dude
Come about like a tattoo etched over decades
Of abuse of his surface – a time tapestry
Of eternal becoming. The ink runs through me
But shows up not through thick skin. Freely it pervades
And presents as my ego. As such, I am screwed.

I end up doing nothing and leaving it to
That which is ever conscious and omni aware.
I can’t grasp nor rid myself of all I become.
I alone cannot get it. The getting comes from
Consciousness Universal which is everywhere.
There’s no need to get anything but a damned clue.
