Within You

Serene

Many look for fulfillment where it can’t be found
Like possessions, money, recognition, and such
Or perhaps it’s love and praise from others you know.
A ‘well done’ from the world can pump up the ego
But these things when accomplished don’t mean very much
To the spirit which can be in no way earthbound.

It can only be found within you. Happiness
Is the reason for wanting. You can be happy
Without having. Think back to when you were a child.
Any thought of lack was instantly reconciled
With a fun thought. You had every reason to be
Free and joyful without any hint of distress.

Your focus wasn’t on what was not there. It was
On what was there and there was always happiness.
If you choose to focus on finding it you will.
Be always reminded that you’re that person still.
At any moment you have absolute access
To that feeling according to natural laws.

Our society teaches us that the new car,
The new house, the new person, the perfect body,
The money, and the new job will satisfy you.
You don’t need this and that. All that you need to do
Is to determine that you want to be happy.
More blessings come to you the more childlike you are.

Light Expanding Meditation

Enlightenment

Everyone deserves happiness, freedom, and peace
And to find some relief from the daily routine.
Your life force is depleted by worldly affairs
And its replenishment is what your spirit cares
About greatly. Its urging to you can be seen
As a sign that you have some tension to release.

All the universe is made of light energy
Which includes your own body. When you meditate
You align yourself with this eternal life force.
Everyone has access to this powerful source.
Take time to get into the meditative state.
It can only affect your life positively.

It begins with your breathing. Take a big breath in
While envisioning the beautiful cleansing light
Coming from your heart center and extending far
Into eternity. It’s who you really are.
Breathe out stresses and worries and become the bright
Light that you are in essence. This isn’t a sin.

The awareness you come to through meditation
Is in contrast to your normal reality.
It’s good to escape there every once in a while.
As you do you can take much of life with a smile.
In a constant state of alignment you can be.
A world that is peaceful is your own creation.

Look For Things To Appreciate

Picture Perfect

What’s the fastest path to absolute happiness?
Look For Things To Appreciate and when you do
You feel good. It will purify your vibration
And it also leads to the manifestation
Of your dreams. Look for whatever fascinates you.
The world responds to the feelings that you express.

What is going to lead you to happiness that
Is close to where you are that you might recognize?
“What can I use as my excuse to feel a bit
Better as I look at you?”
You can benefit

From your asking these question. The one who is wise
Finds the answers in everything they’re looking at.

Revenge may be the path if you’re feeling despair
And from there into anger and then hopefulness…
Your emotional guidance system can lead you
Up the scale to sheer happiness. All you need do
Is focus on your wellbeing and a lot less
On your troubles and things that you don’t want to share.

Look at this world around you. Its magnificence
Can be quite overwhelming if you let it be
That way for you. Appreciate being aware
Of the things you appreciate. Breathe the fresh air.
Notice birds singing and kids playing happily.
The wellbeing of this world you know is immense.

Big Money

Money Storm

The dollars that flow into your life are just the
Evidence of the vibrational currency
That you’ve got going on. If you think thoughts of lack
Chances are regarding money you don’t have jack
But if your thoughts are about living happily
Then you don’t have any issues about money.

Most people will allow the abundance of things
Like friendships, lovely sunsets, and vitality
But they don’t allow the abundance of the flow
Of the money. They’ve practiced the lack of it so
Much that thoughts about money bring on misery.
Full of woe are their vibrational offerings.

You want to be filthy rich with satisfaction
And enthusiasm about being alive.
It can happen but you must be happy without
The manifestation. Joy is what it’s about.
Of your right to be happy no one can deprive
You and it’s because of the Law of Attraction.

If you don’t have Big Money you’re not ready to
Receive it. It’s that simple but you can prepare
To receive by believing that it will be done
And by then concentrating on having more fun.
Your vibrational cupboard can never be bare.
Piles of money are wanting to rain upon you.

What You Really Want

Spiritual Abandon

What you really want can come right now or within
A few minutes or certainly with a day.
With your mind you can focus on feeling your best.
When you do so your life feels not like a contest
But an adventure where things always go your way.
A new life of wellbeing you now can begin.

Everything that you want is because you think you
Will feel better by having it but you can feel
Better right now and when you do things will turn out
For the better. Try it if you have any doubt
About what the kind universe wants to reveal
To your consciousness. You can accept this as true.

Stop nitpicking over how the happiness comes.
Just accept that you can find it right here and now.
What does not come to you instantaneously
Will become part of your life if you let it be
A fulfilling adventure. You want to allow
Yourself to march to the beat of positive drums.

Just find some touchstone that always feels good to you
When you think about it. Use it as your excuse
To feel good in this moment. Don’t try to figure
It all out. Focus on what you want to endure.
You have nothing to do but kick back and let loose
With your loving all that is delightful and new.

When You Reach This State

Colorful Clouds

Why are some people willing to be unhappy?
It’s because they’ve a flawed premise. They believe that
Manifestation brings happiness. It has not
Happened yet and about it they’re feeling distraught.
So the reason folks do this is worth getting at.
Happiness is all part of the joyful journey.

You can be, do, or have anything you desire
And there’s nothing off limits. Vibrationally
It becomes so. You have to be in alignment
With it fully for it to become evident
In your life. Do believe and it will come to be.
A contented state is all you need to acquire.

General enough you can get on anything
Even though it upsets you. It steps you away
From the contrast long enough for you to allow
Better feeling thoughts to take command of your now.
Where you are here and now ends up feeling okay
Then you’re free to do whatever makes your heart sing.

You are the manifester of the emotion,
The idea, the concept, or state of being
And when you find alignment things fall into place.
There’s nothing at the end of the rainbow to chase.
All you need do is adjust your way of seeing.
Take delight in the journey that you have begun.

Happy And Positive Always

Pure Happiness

Once I was bright and happy – a source of sunshine
To the people in my life, in fact, everyone
I encountered enjoyed my enthusiasm.
Now it seems that a part of my heart has grown numb
Due to all of the struggle and hard work I’ve done
For things in my life that will never become mine.

Yet I know by now that by my being happy
My health benefits. My mind and body work best
When I’m happy. There’s plenty of strong evidence
To prove this and it makes absolutely good sense
To make sure that I remain at my happiest.
I want to give to this world the best I can be.

Pleasantness is the issue. Of life energy
Pleasantness is called bliss and of my surroundings
It’s called success. Pleasantness of my emotion
Is called love, compassion, and complete devotion
To the needs of my fellows. My pleasantness brings
Into focus my power. It’s who I must be.

If I’m feeling ecstatic I will hit the ball
A lot better than otherwise but I am not
The issue if I don’t. Once I understand this
Then I am only one moment away from bliss.
No way am I the enigma that time forgot.
How I feel in each moment is truly my call.

Free Yourself From Negativity

Focused Anger

No thought lives in your head rent free and your thoughts cost
Way more than you may realize in the moment.
Thoughts of bitterness, revenge, and resentment are
Perhaps the most expensive because they are far
From delightful. They are of extreme discontent.
To your negative emotions you’ve become lost.

Every time you think of that person who wronged you
That person has hijacked your mind. Your happiness
And your time have been stolen and you are the one
Allowing it to happen. The harm that is done
To the psyche is serious. You may obsess
About giving the son of a gun what is due.

You can choose to occupy your mind with thoughts of
Bitterness or of thoughts that will empower you.
Hatred is like drinking poison and expecting
The other person to die. It’s not affecting
Anyone but yourself. The best thing you can do
Is forgive and grow. This is the pathway to love.

Don’t forgive to make someone else feel better or
Because it’s the ‘right’ thing to do. Do it to free
Yourself from your self-torment. Make room in your mind
For all things that add value to your life. You’ll find
That you can get on with you life and happily.
Keep your real estate open to things you adore.

It’s Not A Sin To Be Happy

Happy Family

Selfishness, pride, envy, greed… all of these can be
Considered to be terrible sins, but there’s no
Greater sin than not being happy. Life is too
Short to tiptoe through it while always feeling blue,
Suffering and complaining with nowhere to go
But deeper into conflict, fear, and misery.

Some may think that happiness is overrated.
Others say that it’s impossible to achieve.
Still others say that we created the concept
Which is why your impressions of it must be kept
Free of bias. In short, you must truly believe
In the happiness you’ve already created.

“Someday, somewhere – anywhere, unfailingly, you’ll
Find yourself, and that, and only that can be the
Happiest or the bitterest hour of your life.”

Who the hell wants to live their life in constant strife
When there’s every good reason to live happily?
We’re not put on the planet to act the damned fool.

Make the best use of your time. Care for your body.
It’s the temple of the Holy Spirit and it
Deserves your respect and affection. Be aware
Of the simple pleasures and find happiness there.
Breaking certain rules can be to your benefit
If with your inner guidance they do not agree.

Society’s Laws And Rules

Legal Institution

Laws and rules are a good thing most generally.
Agreements are made to do things a certain way
That is most beneficial to all those involved
But we’re nowhere near having all our problems solved.
Even though they keep us from utter disarray
Lots of them are outdated or wrong completely.

The path of least resistance would be to obey
All the laws and rules anyway. Life insurance,
For example, is something that society
Finds important. It activates uncertainty
In the psyche which complicates the procurance
Of wellbeing, so in a state of fear we stay.

Once fear is activated a predicament
Is created. How to remain law abiding
Is important. Vibrational integrity,
However, is more so, and the more you can be
In alignment, the more you’ll be coinciding
With behavior expected in any event.

The path of least resistance is also the one
Most open to allowing true justice to come
On the heels of alignment and empowerment.
On the way, you remain in the ever present.
You’re the only one who is keeping yourself from
What you want. Within you is the sole solution.

Free From Negativity

Masks Of The Ego

It’s been said that no thought lives in your head rent free
And your thoughts cost you more than you may realize
In the moment. Thoughts of bitterness, resentment,
And revenge are the most costly to the extent
That they hijack your happiness. Your spirit dies
As you justify your feelings vehemently.

Every time you think about that person who wronged
You, that person steals your consciousness. Like your home,
Your mind only has room for so many thoughts, so
It is best that you take the high road and let go
Of the issue, lest you be caught in a syndrome
Of abject desperation that may be prolonged.

Don’t forgive to make someone else feel better or
Because it’s the right thing to do. Forgive for you.
Release your attachment to negativity
To make room for the thoughts that are absolutely
Beneficial. They are of tremendous value.
There will be many new horizons to explore.

When someone mistreats you, in the moment it feels
Like it’s all about you, but more often than not,
It’s about something over which you’ve no control.
Own whatever you can. Forgiveness makes one whole.
You can find relief from misery on the spot.
Take advantage of the only method that heals.

Positionality

The Part Each Plays

Positionality refers to how social
Position and power shape identities and
Access within society. Dualistic
Mental structures within the ego mind can trick
Itself into believing that it’s in command
By virtue of position and its rationale.

Positionalities include cherished values,
Beliefs, attitudes, and judgments. They are ingrained
During childhood. Reinforced by society,
They become an illusion of reality.
In order to function well, they must be maintained.
One becomes manipulated by social cues.

Positionalities provide all the juice the
Ego needs to maintain its hold and dominance
Of the mind. Race, religion, nationality,
Gender, or how one postures politically
Are examples of position and they enhance
The ego’s own agenda of needing to be.

Phenomena are not either fair or unfair,
Good or bad, right or wrong, or somewhere in-between.
We become judgmental and opinionated
Over things that can’t possibly be related
To enlightenment where the big picture is seen.
Of the ego we can only be more aware.

Intention

Trial And Error

An intention is an idea that you plan
Or want to carry out. It is one of the most
Powerful forces there is. If you mean to do
Something, whether or not you accomplish it, you
Have mustered an intention. You had been engrossed
In its outcome even before the plan began.

To survive and to feel better are the basic
Intentions of the ordinary ego mind.
Spiritual intentions have the power to
Energize and give you a more positive view
Of reality. You can become more refined
In you focus. It isn’t that much of a trick.

They are set internally or externally
And are closely related to one’s objective,
Purpose, aim, goal, design, or dream. As one creates
With intention, the universe coordinates
Everything to one’s favor. One therefore can live
A life free of the ego’s negativity.

Intentions set up priorities and values
And direct commitment and determination.
Some powerful intentions are: “I intend to
Accept responsibility for what I do.
I intend to make peace with my situation.
I intend to be mindful in all that I choose.”

The Simple Secret To Happiness

Joyful Leap

I’m happy to be happy. It’s my decision,
And it’s made in an instant. I don’t have to wait
For conditions to be how I want them to be.
Everything that I need for joy is within me.
I decide in this moment that I will feel great.
My outlook on life doesn’t need a revision.

What are the blocks to happiness? It’s believing
That they are my reality. Then I create
What is needed to have them. Now I’m quite aware
That there are no beleaguering big blocks out there.
It’s not hard to remain in a positive state
When I know that my thinking can be deceiving.

I felt so undeserving because of my past
Misdirected behavior. How’d I let that go?
I decided that it’s better for me to live
Than to self-flagellate. It was hard to forgive
Myself for my wrongdoings. I did manage though.
I had found the relief I needed at long last.

I’m not searching for happiness. I bring it to
Whatever I am doing. I am happiness.
In the absence of pleasure I can find it there
Because it’s totally an internal affair.
In this moment, I chose to have complete access
To that high flying feeling that is ever new.

Whether Anything Changes

Things Work Out

It’s the greatest dilemma that deliberate
Creators have to deal with. Do I respond to
My environment? Do I try to control it?
Or can I by sheer practice get some benefit
From achieving a good thought? Perhaps it is true
That a better environment I can create.

I can’t control the environment, but I can
Change the way that I’m feeling in any moment.
I want to establish a vibration that will
Penetrate what exists here and now to fulfill
My wishes. I believe in my conscious intent.
I don’t need to struggle with some asinine plan.

If I say I want something, I have to believe
That it’s possible, otherwise it will not come.
Conjuring up an image of what I desire
And then focusing on it until I’m on fire
Is the fine beating of a magnificent drum.
I must be in alignment with what I conceive.

Whether Anything Changes or not, I can be
Feeling better than ever. When I find a piece
Of contentment, I know that I’ll be given more
And more of the moments that are worth waiting for.
Then things will change and resistance to it will cease.
I am glad that I have made the choice to be free.

You Are Mostly Vibration

Essence Of Beingness

You’re a flesh and blood human being, this is true,
No one would dare refute it. You’re made of the stuff
Of the physical universe, but you’re also
Just the tip of an iceberg. The more that you know
About who you are truly, you will get enough
Out of life to significantly fulfill you.

You Are Mostly Vibration. It means that you are
Mostly spirit or essence – that which is unseen
But which transmits a signal that is received by
Others in your environment. One can’t deny
That vibration is real. One whose senses are keen
Is the one who is seen as grotesque and bizarre.

Your manifested body wants to manifest
In the physical. You want things to come to you.
So, let it be about how you feel for a while.
Don’t let negative thought put a cramp in your style,
And do not justify anything that you do.
Positivity in thinking must be expressed.

When you’re just in a happy place, things can occur
In spontaneous fashion. Good ideas flow
As well as inspiration. Things are working out
Without your need to see them… which indicates doubt.
That you have asked for it is all you need to know.
All that you have to do now is get happier.

The Fastest Path To Happiness

Taking In The Goodness

What’s the fastest path right here, right now where I am
To my happiness? This question is a good one
To consider – but not “How can I get happy?”
What’s the surest and quickest way that will lead me
To a state of eventual satisfaction?
The question is part of a consciousness exam.

If I’m in despair, then revenge is the next thing
I should reach for. I can’t get from there to sheer bliss.
What can I recognize where I am that will ease
The bad feeling? In other words, how can I seize
Some relief from the realm of the horrid abyss?
The emotional spectrum is worth traversing.

From revenge into anger, and then frustration
Is the way to move forward toward happiness.
Once I reach hopefulness, I am well on the way
To the joy that awaits me. I don’t want to stay
Negative more than needed. I want to express
The best self that I can offer to everyone.

What can I use as my excuse to feel better
Right where I am this moment? Appreciation
Goes a long way in feeling better here and now.
My awareness of how I’m feeling does allow
Much control in the process. I like having fun.
There is nothing to living the life I prefer.

A Magic Recipe

Conjured Panacea

The basis of your life is freedom, and your quest
Is to be happy. The result is expansion
Of who you are. The answer to any issue
Is, Get Happy. More than anything you can do,
How you feel has much to do with what you get done.
The most important thing is that you feel your best.

How do I find the love of my life? Get Happy!
What about my finances? The answer’s the same.
How do I deal with the injustice that exists
In a dangerous world where much hatred persists?
You must know that it is a small part of the game
That is played here. It’s not the way it has to be.

You’ve been trying the impossible for so long
By your looking at things that oppose who you are.
There will come a time when you will have to decide
Which is of more importance. Don’t take things in stride.
Stay away from those things that are not up to par
With you wishes. Your will, in this case, must be strong.

The more you practice looking in the direction
Of what you want, the easier it will become.
You’re offering a vibration where only good
Things can flow to you, and by all goodness, they should.
Recipes for alignment originate from
Being Happy. It is the only solution.

Make Peace With Where You Are

Enjoy The Present

Find something to be happy about – anything,
Then be happy about it, and find another
Thing that will make you happy, and then be happy
About it. Celebrate where you happen to be.
Of the invention of your life, you’re the mother.
To the table, you have an abundance to bring.

Do not try to fix the world. It isn’t broken
Nor is it something worthy of your attention.
Nothing needs to be reformed. Make Peace With Where You
Are
right now. It remains the best thing you can do.

Don’t engage with what’s beyond your comprehension
Because beasts of the past may then be awoken.

Look for things to be happy about, and make lists
Of positive aspects. You can do a rampage
Of appreciation for what is going well
In you life at the moment. You know not to dwell
On the things that aren’t working, so you don’t engage
In the negative. The best part of you resists.

Be selfishly interested in how you feel
In each moment. Let everyone else attend to
How they feel. You’ll fulfill your reason for being.
You’ll delight in your ability for seeing
The big picture. Believe what is in store for you.
You’ll be living the life that is for you ideal.

Certain Possibility

Much Can Happen

Things that seemed quite impossible at first to me
Have turned out to be easy. There’s a better way
I can say this. There is a slight contradiction
In the statement because it can be only one
Or the other. It’s more accurate if I say
That it was possible. I allowed it to be.

I knew that it was possible entirely.
I am free to choose which it is and to attune
To the frequency of it. I am in control
Of what happens in my life. If I set a goal
It is all but accomplished. It will happen soon,
And while it is unfolding, I can be happy.

I can practice the feeling of being aligned
To my purpose and who I am. Human logic
States that struggle is needed to get anywhere.
Life is good for some people. For most, it’s unfair,
But this novel psychosis does nothing but trick
Me into self-undoing of the harshest kind.

“Ask for it, and get on with it!”, is what I’m told
By the spirit within me. I take pleasure in
All the life giving moments that are on the way
To full manifestation. I’m willing to stay
On my path of fulfillment as good things begin
To occur in my life as it is to unfold.

Believe In Yourself

Never Give Up

Find something that you love to do. Make it something
That you do every day. Be completely obsessed
With this thing that you do. What you do from your heart
Brings you pleasure and makes of your life a fine art.
Use your imagination, and give life your best.
Someone will find the work you do interesting.

Set small goals, then achieve them. Get ready for more
Things you want to accomplish. Put pen to paper,
And declare your intentions. You find your freedom
In choosing whatever. As it gains momentum
You become a better reality shaper.
This will make you much more confident than before.

Grow a deep belief in yourself. Play the long game.
You don’t have to be the chosen one. Build resolve
In your spirit in order to reach the plateaus.
When it feels like your spirit is in the shadows
Keep on going. It’s how your spirit will evolve.
Be persistent and constantly adjust your aim.

As children, we’re told this word’s the way it must be,
And our lives are inside it. We try not to bash
Into walls too much and to remain satisfied
With the status quo. We also get to decide
How much of it worthy and how much is trash.
It may take decades for us to finally see.

My True Self

My Calm And Passionate Inner Being

Unattached from my wanting, My True Self and I
Are related by feeling. There cannot be one
Single thing that I must have to be happy now.
As I listen to My True Self I can allow
Everything to fulfill me while I’m having fun.
If things go well for me I need not wonder why.

So, do I have to let go of all my desires
To experience happiness? Does it make sense
To my ego to not want? Can it come to know
The wholeness of its being? Can wellbeing flow
To the self somewhat conscious and caught in suspense?
Can the conscious part do what my spirit requires?

To let go of attachments is to become free
Of the ego’s addiction to dreams coming true
In the physical quickly. They are full of fear
That they won’t. To my fulfillment I must adhere.
My True Self knows exactly the things I should do
In the blissful meantime of things coming to be.

Life is wonderful even with all the contrast.
The adhesive and tricky stuff keeps me aware
Of my need to remain focused on how I feel
In relation to My True Self who is more real
Than I am. My ego needs to learn how to care
For the feeling that matters and will ever last.

Overcoming Negative Emotions

Dealing With Bad Feelings

Human nature becomes me as I wonder why
I suffer the indignance of feeling this way.
Emptiness, frustration, and inadequacy
Are the demons that devour the cold heart of me.
Am I worthless to this world? Is this why I pay
Such a high price for lowlife? Do I want to die?

That is out of the question. I’ve been here before,
And each time it’s the same tape that I keep playing
That puts me at the precipice. What holds me back
Is my fear of the unknown. Spiritual plaque
Blocks the flow of wellbeing. What I am saying
Is that I don’t want to feel this way anymore.

Negative emotions in one’s experience
Happen when needs are unmet, and poor coping skills
Keep one out of alignment. So, what can one do
To escape the consuming cloud? Give me some clue
So that I can return to a life with some thrills.
What would be beneficial to my transcendence?

I’ll take responsibility for my feelings
After acknowledging that I have them. Then I
Can attempt to identify where they come from
At their core. In this simple way I’ll overcome
The dark cloud that is passed now. If I really try
I’ll succeed at getting back to wonderful things.

Magic Words

Verbal Power Tools

Why do we define ourselves through language of lack
When we’ve come to be so much of who we now are?
It’s because we’ve trained ourselves to see with our eyes
Rather than feeling our way. Indeed it is wise
Not to think our way through it. We may stray too far
From the target. What can we do to keep on track?

Find a good feeling and then let the thoughts follow.
It’s quite easy to do this. It’s also soothing.
We do this by saying everything is alright.
“I am fine. All is well, and my future is bright.
Positive energy surrounds me. Everything
That I do is exciting. I go with the flow.”

Do not get too specific. Just stay general
So as not to get hung up in all the detail.
The specifics are handled by the universe.
It’s most important that you commit to immerse
Yourself in your self-soothing. In this you can’t fail.
Get yourself to believing that you’re that special.

You can’t argue for your limitations and be
Anywhere close to happy. With yourself make peace.
Make it alright where you are. The things that you say
To yourself subconsciously all throughout your day
Lead you to the place of spiritual release.
Say nice things about yourself, and do it with glee.

Expect!

Know And Anticipate

Do things come faster to you when you are blissed out
With no worries or cares about what’s happening
In the moment with your life? Things are going well.
Every once in a while, though, in darkness you dwell.
You know that you will get what you are expecting
And that there is no place for your infrequent doubt.

You want to pinch yourself to know that it is true.
You have manifested well. Life is a delight.
Questioning your worthiness slows everything down
Immensely. You don’t want to be fraught with a frown
In places in your mind that just do not feel right.
Don’t compare yourself with anyone except you.

You will never stop asking for more. It’s the way
That the universe operates. Stay pointed in
The direction of the flow of your heart’s desire.
Devouring your life experience is the fire
That you want to keep stoking. There’s nothing to win
Because you are the top prize each and every day.

With very little effort you can reach the place
Where you ask and things happen immediately.
There’s always more to celebrate. With each new day
Do expect things to work out pretty much your way.
You can’t be blissed out always although you can be
Moving in the direction of infinite grace.

The Meaning Of Life

Of Ultimate Purpose

“What’s the meaning of meaning?” someone may inquire
If asked, “What is the meaning of life?” The answer:
Why do surfers take surf boards and go ride the waves?
It’s not to smooth the ocean out, and no one craves
Teaching fish how to swim on top of the water.
They do it just because it’s something they desire.

The meaning of meaning means does it have purpose…
Is there some rhyme or reason for it to occur?
The purpose and the reason for life is the thrill
Of achieving alignment. The key is to chill
And allow things to happen as you would prefer.
Meaning is something that is easy to discuss.

The basis of life is freedom and the result
Is expansion, exposure, opportunity,
And desire for experience in the contrast.
While you are on earth you should be having a blast.
Joyful and triumphant is how you want to be.
To not be who you are is the gravest insult.

Life itself is the meaning of life. Feeling it
Pouring through you is exhilarating and fun.
To see manifestation happen in response
To your proper alignment in sheer nonchalance
Is the meaning of life. Surely you are the one
Who it’s meant for. It is for your full benefit.

Anxiety And Depression

Personal Hell

The Dead End I have reached. There is nowhere to go
That is not without torment. “Struggle is okay,”
Would say friends if I had them. “We all can relate
To the bitter taste life has. When in a lost state
Know that you’re not alone although it seems that way.”

Could there be a ‘friend’ inside me who I don’t know?

What I feel is reality, and it is now.
Contemplating ending it all, I find relief
In the knowing that doing so may curse my soul.
What if it is already too much less than whole?
My own negative thinking I know is the thief
Of my spirit. I’d feel better if I knew how…

So we all go through hard times, and I would do best
To be patient with myself. I deserve a break.
Some rest and relaxation and good exercise
When I’m feeling much better is proper and wise.
I must move this damned body while I am awake
Whatever that may look like and rightly expressed.

I must force myself off the couch and on a walk.
I can create something from the pain that I feel.
Things that make me wonderful, blessed, and unique
And the things I appreciate counter the bleak.
I become all the better throughout the ordeal.
Therapy for the psyche is positive shock.

Gratitude Makes It Happen

Open Heart Mastery

In a big way I’m selfish. It’s all about me.
There are so many wishes that I want fulfilled
And I’m totally satisfied with where I am
Even with all its chaos. I work a program
Where I get most things done because I am strong-willed.
Am I somewhat disgusting? I don’t want to be.

Through experience I learn the way to behave.
Because I am hard headed there’s no other way.
I’ve learned that when I don’t care, things turn out alright,
And I don’t have to struggle, much to my delight.
My resistance vibration causes me dismay
Can I weed out the habits that do self-enslave?

The entire world is revolving around me
And every one else. It’s counterintuitive
At this point, but it will not be for very long.
There’s an uncanniness to my getting things wrong.
It’s a specialized talent that I’m made to live,
But I don’t have to use it if I let things be.

All in all, it’s a good life. I am grateful for
All the things that still thrill me. I appreciate
That I can be excited without anything
In the outer world causing it. What it can bring
Is an ease of contentment. When I’m in that state
I expect and am showered with blessings galore. 

Avalanche Of Abundance

Onslaught Of Blessings

We’re a nation of freedom I’d like to believe.
If the word has some meaning then manifold are
The kinds people conceive of. The freedom To Be
Is what they all boil down to. When I think of free
It means infinite resources. This may be far
From what many may think of. I am that naïve.

If my funds became infinite I could fulfill
Many dreams of a lifetime, but more important,
Fear and inconvenience would no longer exist.
I would shine like the sun and would rarely be pissed.
I would no longer be using the words, “I can’t.”
Every moment of each day would be such a thrill.

These are positive aspects of simply living.
Focusing on the things I like best is the way
To deliberately think a better feeling
Though until I’ve trained myself to instantly bring
About total alignment. This way I can stay
In a mood that is wonderful and life-giving.

Everything is vibration. There’s no exception
To this law of the universe. It’s absolute
In that everything vibrates at a frequency.
 I can tune myself to getting lots of money
But the more proper and more significant fruit
Is the satisfaction for the inner work done.

It’s All About The Journey

Joy Along the Way

Happiness unconditionally is the goal
In itself. It’s the journey that’s most fulfilling.
Conditions are a menace to being content.
Anyone could argue that they often prevent
The attainment of happiness, and they can bring
On a torrent of torment to the longing soul.

No one’s happiness can be dependent upon
The fulfillment of wishes. The absence keeps one
From not feeling true joy. It’s a sad affair
When life’s slow movement creates complacent despair.
Fortunately the programming can be undone.
One can dissolve old thought patterns until they’re gone.

How one feels is not contingent on what is now.
Now becomes ancient history once it is passed.
By nature, one’s vibration is where it should be,
But by needing conditions it is completely
Misaligned with the frequency of what’s amassed
In vibrational escrow. One needs to allow.

The ideas will flow like magic. When they do,
The worthiness factor will go through the roof.
You will feel divine energy firm at your back
And will no longer tolerate feelings of lack.
You will have complete knowing without needing proof.
Simply get happy then watch what happens to you.

Unconditional Alignment

The Most Fundamental Relationship

Conditions monolithic meticulously
Placed to honor eternity’s fine measurement
Of the moment worth noting in any event
Are the stones that outweigh us because they prevent
The free flowing of pure love that is heaven sent.
No demand made on others do I need To Be.

My alignment with myself is most important.
Before I give to others, I must firmly own
Who I am at my purest or else I can’t be
But a nuisance to those who may then chastise me
I can make no one happy nor can I condone
Taking on the assignment. Most surely I can’t.

The path of least resistance is one that is true
To the nature of who I am when connected
To the source that keeps galaxies spinning in place.
When I say that I love you, it is with the grace
Of freedom from conditions. I have perfected
The most basic commitment I need to tend to.

There is no interfering with another’s way
When oneself is receptive, together, and whole.
Alignment can be brute forced and henged into place,
 But the turbulence is something no one should face.
Being someone’s performer is not quite the goal
Unless one is well up for the hell one must pay.

Decide To Get Happy

The Only Choice There Is

There’s so much information about feeling good.
Tons of books, affirmations, and many techniques
Are available to me. The volume is great.
I can’t take it all in because I complicate
Processes when simplicity my dumb soul seeks.
Truly I wish that these things could be understood.

Can this Law Of Attraction stuff work out for me?
What the hell is ‘vibration?’ I need to be schooled.
These ethereal concepts are hard to digest.
Where the hell is my stuff anyway. I’m hard pressed
To come into alignment. Perhaps I am fooled
By my excessive efforts to finally see.

It’s not so complicated. All that has been said
About living a life that is most fulfilling
Is reduced to one phrase: “Decide To Get Happy.”
All the mountains of words and procedures can be

Understood a lot better if I am willing
To let go of the struggle. It’s all in my head.

I just need to Get Happy. That’s in the mind too.
I’ve practiced being ornery for quite a while.
I can best harness the Power Of Feeling Good
By engaging in all that I possibly should

To enhance my alignment and brighten my smile.
I can feel my way into a life that is new.

Inspirational Solitaire

Solo Artistic Mastery

It’s my job – no one else’s – to be who I am.
It is wrong to get others to do that for me.
Understanding of who and where I am is mine
To explore with abandon. Why would I assign
This most intimate duty so egregiously
To others who cannot nor should not give a damn?

I am here to live happily ever after
As is everyone here in this school of nature.
It is up to me only to play out my role.
To experience joy here is my only goal.
My freedom to choose is something that will endure
Until matriculation from earthly matter.

So, I might as well decide to get happily
Since I am ever after already by now.
Choices made from beyond are what I live each day.
I came here because I like my hands in the clay.
By deliberate intent I best can allow
Creation to flow with ease and naturally.

I relent to alignment and my connection
To the spirit within. I give up resistance
And the incessant battles and struggles I make.
Peace of mind and fulfillment are what are at stake.
Now is no time to continue living by chance
By insisting on others to get my work done.

The Recipe

The Way Of Good Living

All good things that are sought, created, and received
Are contained in The Recipe for wellbeing.
The basis of all life is freedom, and our quest
Is to seek out and find new joy and feel our best.
The command to get happy is worth obeying.
It’s the one best solution for all ills conceived.

How do I find my lover, or land that big job…
Or live happily ever after? Get Happy!
To get what I want, I have to get happy first,

Then all things that I’ve dreamed of are fully disbursed.
Staring down what I hate looking at too closely
Leads to failure, and self-confidence does it rob.

I can’t look at things that make me unhappy, then
Try to make myself joyful. That doesn’t work well.
Looking in the direction of what I prefer
Is the best way to get momentum to occur.
In a world of abundance my spirit must dwell.
I do not have to fix what I see as broken.

Practicing feeling wonderful narrows the gap
Between me and my wishes. They all can come true.
Anything I can do to distract myself from
The apparent dilemma can help overcome
The resistance I harbor. My fortune is due.
Universal forces I am willing to tap.

New Story

The Ever Unfolding Drama

Once upon a tough lifetime, the fool I became
Disconnected me from myself and family.
An awful disappointment I am to them now.
Resolution is futile. I can but allow
Divine guidance to soothe the decayed part of me
Who continues the story of sorrow and shame.

The process of atonement will not complete here
In the realm of the physical. It’s much too late.
Criminal are offenses that I’ve committed.
My life hangs by the tiniest bit of a thread.
Addicted to self-loathing, the hell I create
Is the product of thinking and acting from fear.

Any troublesome story deserves a rewrite
No matter how disgusting and vile it may be.
I’d been under the influence of human pain.
No regret have I. My actions I can’t explain.
I can remain the victim of insanity
Or amend the whole story to something more bright.

Life is short, and its meaning I’m left to pursue
Through intense introspection with much gratitude
For the lessons I’m given so that I may grow.
That I am worthy is all that I need to know.
If I don’t take this attitude, then I am screwed.
Any story can be changed to something brand new.

The Missing Piece

That Which Everyone Is In Search Of

I’ve been feeling there’s something in life that should change.
Some resistance I do have knowing exactly
How or what it would look like, but how it would feel
Must be my only focus. Then life will reveal
What it is that I’m missing. The trick is to be,
With regard to passion, within receiving range.

Stand I must in the wholeness in true resonance
With who I am and revel, then changes will come.
And I will recognize them on their way to me.
It’s a struggle to create deliberately
Because there’s an awareness one can’t escape from.
It’s resistance about the current circumstance.

Remaining on the treadmill of things as they are
Prevents me from their changing to something other
Than to keep trying, then failing. Then the despair
Takes control of the spirit. No wellness is there.
To make peace with where I am now has to occur.
The next piece about making peace then can’t be far.

The ability to feel good no matter what
Is the treasure I must know that I own outright.
Where, when, or how is not the question to be asked.
It is why that I want that leaves goodness unmasked
So that I can discover with utter delight.
Getting through the resistance, one needs a shortcut.

I Am

Unlike Any Other

Welcome magic and wonder, true brilliance, and grace.
Welcome joy, satisfaction, all pleasure, and strength.
May the essence of beauty and presence of form
Be the way of existence and surely the norm.
Excellence be the blessing throughout the wavelength
Of the spectrum of Being in this time and space.

What I seek I have already. What I must know,
I can understand. All I wish I could, I can.
Who I want to be, I am. What I seek, I own.
I comply with the knowing that I’m not alone
And have never be so since before life began.
I accept love and give all that I have also.

I am seed. I am tree; the flower and the bee.
Fire and wind I am both. I am mother and child.
I am mighty and loud, yet I silently tread
Lightly upon this earth. The goodwill that is spread
Is of nature. I am reason, and I am wild.
I’m the buyer and seller who oft’ disagree.

I am ease and great power; the bridge and tower.
I am sand and the beach. I am student; I teach.
Modest and monumental, I’m brave yet gentle.
I’m all that exists and I’m coincidental.
I am many and few; I am every and each
Of God’s essence within you as life does occur.

Another World

Alien To All That Is Known

From one world to another I want to transcend
In a state meditative whenever I can.
Freedom I have to enter a world of pure bliss
Which in life is the sweetest nectar. Like a kiss
To the confounded consciousness, it is more than
A brief break from attention the mind does expend.

With a peanut sized consciousness I can only
Have a peanut sized understanding of most things
But if I can expand it beyond boundaries
Then the world becomes friendly, and my acts appease
Others’ whose offer harshness. The exercise brings
On a flood of awareness most definitely.

There’s a pure vibrant ocean of consciousness in
Each one of us, and it’s called The Unified Field.
Modern science says all matter emanates from
This Field which has a consciousness that can become
That of anyone seeking it. What is revealed
Is awareness divine yet within human skin.

People look like friends rather than enemies when
They have sought true alignment by going within
Where there’s infinite knowing, creative release,
And a path that will lead to the ultimate peace.
Can this life be a game that one can play to win
With no harm done to others as ever has been?

Joyful Always?

The Magnificent Spirit

The left nut I would give and the gold kitchen sink
To find joy in the moment that lasts all day long.
I hear say there are those who are Joyful Always.
Fettered folk who fall needy should offer them praise.
I shall not show my jealousy. That would be wrong.
Sneaking up on some joy I at all doth bethink.

I have felt awfully happy even while in pain.
The problem is sustaining it more than a while.
Wellbeing means exuberance. Life energy
Flows without interference thus most easily.
How to get there and stay there could fit my profile
If I got rid of thinking that drives me insane.

Depression means life energy has reached a low
Through the cycles recursive of tapes that are played
From the cage of the closed mind. The only way out
Is to know my mortality without a doubt.
In this way I’m reminded of my true crusade.
Pettiness has no path on the way I should go.

 I create what I’m doing in every detail.
Karma means it’s my action. The questions for me
Are: How joyful am I? And how much do I give
Out to others? This is a most wise way to live
For this brief earthly sojourn. I can choose to be
Cognizant of my time here. That way I can’t fail.

Fun Filled Flavors Of Time

TheMagicRealist.com

It’s a good life! The moral revealed at the end
Of the old classic movie is reemphasized
In the smile in a short while, or falling in love
With the wonder of Being. The sunshine above
Wraps me warm with its freshness. To it I am prized.
What dessert made in heaven would I recommend?

 It’s a romp through a funhouse of utter delight.
Every sight that beholds me, and I it, reveals
Everything that is wonderful. Does nature rhyme
With all that I’ve become and in such little time?
I am confident that I don’t need training wheels.
From my viewpoint, I see that my future is bright.

Time tastes funny to me, and sometimes it is sweet.
I have not lived life long enough to harbor doubt
That the goodness in this world is bigger than bad.
Nothing much about my life can make me feel sad.
I atone on my own with no ego to tout.
My digesting is joyful, and life is a treat.
