My Ego

Pride

How can I make the dance a little bit better
Between God and my ego? How can I become
More aligned with my wishes vibrationally?
How do I get to know the divine part of me?
I know where my humanity emanates from.
My ego, to the world, is an open letter.

That part of me that is called the ego is my
Receiving divine guidance. I am connected
By default, but at times, there is uncertainty
About where in the scheme of it all I should be.
That’s the part of me that needs to be directed
On its journey. The ego is best to comply.

The all-powerful, all knowing, uplifting source
Of creation is recognized by the ego
Which is this human body. It tends to complain
About life. It is always trying to attain
Something it has already. It just doesn’t know
That it is in the hands of an almighty force.

The ego is a prism. It translates the light
Of divinity into all that I perceive.
The artist is created. The ego, therefore,
Cannot lose its connection. Indeed it is more
Than a physical nuisance. One has to believe
That the ego will see a future that is bright.

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.

Righteous Selfishness

Be Your Own Master

Don’t freak out when people tell you you’re not okay.
They don’t mean to be disrespectful. They just are.
You are in the exact place where you’re meant to be.
You cannot be off schedule. Nothing remotely
Is the matter. In fact, you are not very far
From achieving nirvana as if it’s child’s play.

And from this point forward, your conscious awareness
Is a keener experience. There are many
Who will please you and many who will let you down.
No one’s here to do either, so wearing a frown
Makes no sense, that is if you want to remain free
Of unrighteous encounters. You don’t need the stress.

Don’t look to other folks for what you already
Have within you. Your own heart knows what’s best for you.
Just notice it all softly – the nice subtle ways
That the universe structures itself to amaze
And delight you. There’s nothing that you need to do
But to be aware of your creativity.

You’ve decided to please yourself a whole lot more
Than you had been. You’re free to not stand on your head
Or jump through hoops for others’ worthless approval.
Your enlightenment means your constant removal
Of the psychic behaviors that have cause much dread.
There are some things in life that are good to ignore.

Immutable Advice

A Serious Message For Modern Times

This is the land of plenty in so many ways
That are not paid attention to nearly enough
By enough of the people for a solution
To be had. People look upon with derision
Those severely in need. We all know life is tough
For the many. With oneself is where concern stays.

Generations of the past faced problems galore.
Some advice is well taken, but most is ignored.
Those who will carry on will have challenges too.
Global warming and homelessness are but a few
Of the issues they will face as they move toward
A world that is more peaceful than it was before.

Lasting peace is based on the concept of oneness
Of all eight billion humans. I am a person…
Not a race or a country or a continent.
The human race is all that I can represent.
Epidemics and climate change make the world one
Albeit by brute force. Will they have some success?

We are one huge community… not several
Entities independent of one another.
The illusion of separateness causes war,
And the root of all evil corrupts evermore.
A big blast of enlightenment has to occur,
And it’s up to us only to say that it shall.

Spirituality

The Realm Of The Unseen

Spirituality is a cool waterfall
That refreshes the consciousness and the body.
One is one with oneself and the whole universe.
No one can deny that it is good to immerse
Oneself in sacred waters and be completely
Cleansed of bad energy which can affect us all.

Spirituality is the bright filament
Of the bulb of the body. Electricity
Is the current that flows in cycles unending
And gives movement and warmth to every living thing.
It’s the lock unto which only love is the key.
It is needed to live a life of contentment.

As the water, the bulb, and the lock represent
But the physical essence of what can be known,
The truth is that we are also the energy…
Every drop of the water, and the sacred key
Known as love. Knowing that you are never alone
Is of spirit. You are not here by accident.

You don’t have to improve yourself. You can accept
Who you are in this moment with all your failings.
Comparing yourself with others isn’t the way
Of the spiritual path. Don’t be led astray
By the essence of toxic social happenings.
Spirit has not a secret that must be well kept.

The Choice Is Yours

Total Self-Responsibility

Motivated by money, power, and control,
The ego of humanity triggers decay
Of its terminal body. Madness and disease
Are the rhythmic death rattle. The putrid feces
That escape as it dies is enough to convey
That the human condition is less than heart whole.

The system is bankrupt so those now in power
Want to hold on to all that they can and to kill
Off a lot of people so that they can retain
Their control over everything. All is in vain
Because there are those who recognize their free will
To remain oblivious to things that occur.

People fell into too low a conscious level.
The human spirit once enslaved by the ego
Has long left. Narcissistic we’ve grown in mindset.
Savage capitalism is then a big threat.
The body is decaying. The process is slow.
Where in this is there space where the heart can revel?

We are all instruments of a higher power.
Mass psychoses and Kool Aid cults all must take place.
The cycle of existence – creation and fall
And eternal redemption – we go through it all.
We’ve the choice to be zombies or creatures of grace.
Is it so hard to figure out which you prefer?
