All That I Want

Touching Tranquility

I’ve decided to be happy just for a while.
It’s much easier if, at the start of the day,
I spend time meditating to clear my mind of
Anything that is not a reflection of love.
It’s more difficult when there’s clutter in the way
Of my reason for finding a reason to smile.

Can I just pull it out of thin air – the feeling
Of excitement for living? Is it that easy?
That’s not likely to happen if I speak this way.
The universe listens to all that I say.
All That I Want in my life is to simply be
In a state, with each moment, that is appealing.

What gets me there is anything pleasing to do.
Focus wheels, meditation, and music distract
My attention from ‘what is’ the matter with me,
But my own expression of creativity,
To my vibration, has a tremendous impact.
Doing pleasurable things can get me there too.

My predominant work for this day is to stay
Satisfied and delighted, moment by moment.
I can gather momentum toward feeling good
Any time. My intention is well understood
By the universe. My job is being content.
It’s unlikely that my joy will lead me astray.

Not Everyone Gets It

Sensations Are Relative

Some people just don’t get it, and that is okay.
I know I don’t. It’s something not well understood
By the general population throughout their
Daily routines. Can I learn to be more aware
Of what goes on around me? And can I get good
At deciphering feelings the old fashioned way?

There is one major frequency or vibration
That all humans are linked to perpetually.
A lot of people are trained to pretend that they
Are not one with the wavelength. Therefore they betray
Their true sense of alignment with who they could be.
Fundamental is this vibe to all creation.

We perceive melodies by discerning the notes
And the spaces between them, but it’s all just noise
To someone who is tone deaf, and the color blind
Cannot understand beauty as it is defined
By the artist. The one with full senses enjoys
More of what life presents us or shoves down our throats.

In the same way, our sense of alignment may be
Not as sharp as it could be. Both cause and effect
Are the same event. The head does not ‘cause’ the tail.
Once this wisdom is digested you cannot fail.
The words and the music cannot be incorrect
For the one who is centered emotionally.

Attract What You Want

Use Your Natural Magnetic Power

Attraction is the only force, and assertion
Is a psychic illusion. It does not exist.
It’s a misperception based in fear and contempt.
Everyone is at some risk. No one is exempt
From the Law no matter how hard one may resist.
The use of brute force is but a crude solution.

The ego teaches you that you are what you do,
What you have, and the labels you manage to earn.
You become not successful, happy and fulfilled
By chasing after things that will make you self-willed
And a menace. From people you will draw concern.
As you think, so shall you be. This statement is true.

We are obsessed with a kind of absurdity
That the false self keeps up with. What you think about
Is what expands, so be careful of how you think.
If you can keep your thoughts from approaching the brink
Of disaster, one could say you’re right on the route
To knowing and believing in who you must be.

Have a mind that is open to everything and
Attached to nothing. Nobody knows enough to
Be a pessimist. Each and every one of us
 Has a genius that lives in the solar plexus.
The potentiality resides within you
To be someone who is magnificently grand.

Don’t Die With Your Music Still In You

There's No Time To Waste

Some of us hear a different drummer, and we
Must march to the music that we so plainly hear.
Each one of us has some kind of music playing.
Do not ever say that it goes without saying.
Listening to that music is cause for some fear
Among many. It’s not the way things ought to be.

We all show up here with a purpose and a drive
To complete a heroic mission here on earth
Whether it’s to run an ice cream shop on Cape Cod
Or invent the next mouse trap, or travel abroad,
Whatever trips your trigger and generates mirth,
Get it done while you are young and fully alive.

There’s an intelligence that’s part of everything
And everyone, and all are connected to it.
It informs you, and you it, of what is worthwhile
To focus your attention on, and in the style
Of a master creator, all that you commit
To your passion, a wonderful life it will bring.

When you’re fulfilling your dream of who you can be,
Completely on purpose and fulfilled you become.
However distant, bizarre, or strange it may seem
Don’t let negative patterns detract from your dream.
Let go of all the things that are keeping you from
Playing on this life stage. We’re here only briefly.

Not Everyone Gets It, And It’s OK

Trickle Down Enlightenment

First of all, I don’t get it. Let’s be more than clear.
It’s a thing that a lot of folks can’t comprehend.
Like a sense, it has subtleties huge and complex.
It is rigid in outlook with all due respects
To the best that it knows with no need to pretend
It gets it absolutely while ignoring fear.

If I’m tone deaf it means I can’t hear melodies.
In the musical world they are called intervals.
I cannot hear relationships between the notes.
Currently there are no viable antidotes.
With that kind of condition I’m caught by the balls
In a circumstance that feels a lot like disease.

One can also be deaf philosophically.
One who is rigidly logical in their ways
Must expect things to happen according to plan.
There is too much incentive to do what one can
To avoid knowing oneself so consciousness stays
In a state of stagnation unfortunately.

I may know all the words but not so the music.
The relationship between the cause and effect
Is that they’re the same process composed of two parts.
When I master this aspect enlightenment starts.
There is nothing that is known by mere intellect,
And deciphering oneself is no easy trick.

One Minute Away

An Instant To Eternity

All my work is to get on that high flying disk.
It’s the path that I know has the least resistance.
It is easier done earlier in the day
Before old thoughts and patterns do my peace betray.
In the morning while still fresh I have the best chance.
I can get there by feeling contented yet brisk.

The first thing in the morning I’ll take one minute
To remember who I am and where I belong.
Then I’ll think pleasant things about places to go
And about things to do that will help me to grow
In the ways of the spirit. I can remain strong
For that short length of time. There is not a dispute.

Anything that I can do that’s pleasurable
Is a thing that’s worth doing. In fact, it’s a must
For spiritual health and that of the body.
Thinking thoughts that are positive helps me to be
In a state of contentment and ultimate trust
That I will in this day be profoundly stable.

I’ve much determination in finding that place
Of the highest vibration that I can achieve.
It lets me know the good things in life that I’ve done.
Then a chain reaction of blessings has begun.
I can’t help sounding foolish and sorely naïve.
That’s okay as long as I am receiving grace.
