Calm And De-Escalate

Dealing With Stress

The intense sense of threat or fear, if left unchecked,
Can cause harm to the body. The brain, in this state,
Goes into survival mode. Reason and logic
Are switched off, and the primitive portion will kick
Into high gear. That’s why people cannot think straight
When they are escalated. Good sense they reject.

This part of the brain’s job is to keep one alive.
Harm or danger ignites it. When we are angry,
Stress hormones then start flowing. Blood pressure will rise.
Inconceivable madness is seen in the eyes.
Cues nonverbal we tend to read negatively.
All this part of the brain wants to do is survive.

So, how does someone deal with someone who’s irate?
Empathy is the best way. People have to know
That their feelings are valid, and it is okay
To express them in safety. You can in this way
Have a calm interaction. The care that you show
For their tough situation can de-escalate.

Regulate their emotions. Do not educate.
Stay with what they are feeling, and validate it.
Slow down your body movements, and lower your tone.
People relax when they know that they’re not alone
With regard to their feelings. They will benefit
From the nurturing atmosphere that you create.

From Seed To Tree

The Natural Process

Nature does what it has to in order to do
What it needs to. We are a part of the process
Of its happening. Physical identity
Is the product of its spirituality.
It has only one drive and that is to express
In infinite variety. All know it’s true.

The seed wants to break open. It is not concerned
With becoming a better seed. It has one goal.
It’s to be a seed then not be one anymore.
It knows no other thing that it wants to live for.
It feels within itself that it’s complete and whole.
It relies not on anything it may have learned.

Nature builds the outside of us. That part within
Is of God or universal intelligence.
If we cling to the ego self, we cannot know
Our true spirit, then we are unable to grow
To the next stage in being. Who needs the expense?
Breaking open is the wisest place to begin.

Some refuse to break open. In their defiance
Is the foolish endeavor to stay relevant
In a world that keeps changing. There may need to be
Some kind of revelation to set the soul free
Of its ego component. Just as with a plant,
Change is needed in order to usher expanse.

Form, Essence, And Identity

The Faces Of Being

“Anything that you can do, I can do better,”
Says one child to the other. We see it play out
On playgrounds everywhere anyone might visit.
Is it normal to act out this way? Or is it
A behavioral glitch? There is minimal doubt
That it is natural, and science does concur.

One can’t say to the child, “Don’t do that because you’re
Emphasizing your basic form identity.”

The child would respond with a perplexed expression,
Having no clear idea of what had been done
To incur such correction. The child is simply
Acting as any child would. Is it immature?

Underneath form identity is the essence
Of who you are. The spiritual dimension
Is where your truest self is. It radiates through
Your form identity – the made up part of you.
Is it good that this is brought to your attention?
If it is not then I can offer no defense.

At some point near adulthood, there usually
Is a shift of attention from ego centered
Explorations of turmoil, toward inner peace.
We find comfort in life as we learn to release
Things of form. Something within the spirit is stirred,
And we focus more on our true identity.

When Things Get Hard

Dealing With Contrast

Life can throw you some curves. We know this to be true,
And it’s not just the things that you can see coming.
It’s the things out of nowhere that can set you back
Far enough that you fear you can’t get back on track.
“Never Give Up!” This beat is well worth your drumming.
When you’ve reached your limit, what else is there to do?

Am I going to make it? This echoing fear
Makes the tight spot a tough knot for my gut to bare.
When faced with the impossible most people will
Give it up. In so doing, they do not fulfill
Their life’s dreams, which may lead to ultimate despair.
Life remains hard while maintaining this atmosphere.

When I’ve reached my rock bottom and I’m depleted
Of my energy, that’s the point where the tide turns.
The pain is what makes me stronger. If I go through
It instead of avoiding it, what I once knew
Cannot matter much. This is how my spirit learns
That in life I am tried but never defeated.

Pain is what makes one stronger. It is the high cost
Of the growth of the spirit. The mentality
Of the victim or victor is what I may choose.
There is winning or learning. This wonderful news
Is a change in my outlook. I don’t have to be
Disillusioned about life, and all is not lost.

Profound Words

Wisdom Speake

Space is not just nothing. It contains everything.
Mystery is its essence. A darkness profound
Fully blankets the consciousness in the unknown.
It is by our human nature that we are prone
To consider space travel because we’re earthbound.
More than anything else, space is interesting.

Whether pondered mentally or actually,
Rather than just a mystery, space is perceived
As a function of whatever solids it holds.
Within it every kind of occurrence unfolds.
This enveloping enigma must be believed
To be real as it’s known scientifically.

Intervals there are of space. It is connective.
You are not a flash of consciousness that occurs
Between two eternal periods of darkness.
You’re an integral part of the cosmic process.
To each thing that exists everything else refers.
The deepest realm of space is that in which we live.

Earth is not a big rock infested with living
Organisms any more than your skeleton
Is bones infested with cells. You are a symptom
Of the earth. It’s not necessary to become
What we are already. Our full integration
With existence is one wholesome awakening.

Psychic Exercise

Maintenance Of Spiritual Wellbeing

Catch a ride on the magic carpet of spirit.
You are the manifester of all that you know
To be real in the physical as well as in
A beingness of frequency. As you begin
To believe in vibration everything will go
Easier. It takes no time to get used to it.

There is nothing of value ever grater than
To be satisfied with what you’re manifesting
And basking in the feeling of knowing that God
Cannot create a thing in a manner slipshod.
Truly knowing this, what a relief it does bring
To the part of you who fears not having a plan.

Basking means feeling proud. It also means oneness
With your inner being. Your appreciating
Is also a component to be realized
In the state of alignment. Be then magnetized.
The universe is constantly advocating
For your glory. Don’t think that you are something less.

There are many people who are right now living
How you would want to live, and at one time they were
Standing where you are now. No manifestation
Comes until you can believe in the gestation
In the womb of your clear mind. The birth will occur.
In the meantime, be in the mode of thanksgiving.

Be Silent!

Keep Psychically Still

Many times throughout life it’s best not to express
Verbally. There are obvious circumstances
Where silence is the answer. If you feel no one
Understands your feelings, speech is no solution.
If you have doubts about your thoughts then the chances
Of your making sense are significantly less.

Remain quiet when others are judging someone
Negatively. You will get sucked into a mess.
When someone screams and yells in anger and hatred
Being silent will calm this person. If instead
You respond with words you will accomplish much less.
Petty and useless dialog now has begun.

Try to keep quiet when someone else is sharing
Some event in their life quite emotionally.
Interrupting shows them that you really don’t care
Being silent shows them that at least you’re aware
As they are providing you their testimony.
What you think about it is not worth declaring.

A smart person solves a problem, but the wise one
Avoids it altogether. As much as you know
That you don’t know that you don’t know you become more
Than you were in the moment you were just before.
Being silent is often the best way to go.
What you don’t say cannot enter the equation.

Indifference

I Just Don't Care

I’m a very cold person if I so believe.
But does it serve me well to go on in this way?
That I do not enjoy it should offer a clue.
I can trick myself into believing it’s true
Just because all alone is how I’d rather stay.
From the world outside mine I deserve a reprieve.

It is fear, I suppose, that keeps me self-contained.
The baser human instinct I cannot predict
In myself nor in others. I’m safe in my cage
Where I’m free to indulge in a counter rampage
To reverse the effects of the thoughts that conflict
With my mental wellbeing which is peace ordained.

I’m a warm hearted, loving, and giving person.
Somewhere deep down inside I know that this is true.
So the opposite feeling which has less power
Yet with some negative momentum will devour
The self-nurturing instinct. The thing I can do
Is examine my ill thoughts. It may not be fun.

All sorts of ideas and strict definitions
Are ingrained in my psyche. They stain my spirit.
I must sift my way through them all and let them go.
They are ideas only. If they cause me woe
Then I know they’re not conducive to keeping fit.
As I purge I’ll remember to keep the good ones.

Amongst The Rest

The Outstanding One

Creation is activating a vibration
In advance of the manifestation, and most
People are activating vibrations based on
History, so the future is hard set upon
What has happened. We tend to be fully engrossed
With the past in its detail. It isn’t much fun.

The future keeps on being the same as the past
If no change in vibration takes place in the heart.
What is past will continue. The need to move on
From the present condition is why one is drawn
To profound dissolution. One sees a fresh start
As the only solution and one that will last.

Out of chaos comes complete awareness of all
That is not to one’s liking. It brings clarity
To what is most appreciated in someone.
In the parting of old ways the journey begun
Leads the heart to fulfillment. Be grateful to be
At an altitude where you’re unable to fall.

The relationship you want is in the process
Of becoming. This new story is viable.
Miserable excursions back into the past
Are to be blessed and let go. The brighter forecast
Is the one that you have made most reliable.
Take the edge off of your journey and don’t obsess.

Your World Will Shift Today

Change Is Inevitable

What questions would I ask if I stood before God
And were granted the privilege of the answers?
What would God ask of me were our places reversed?
Either way if the session was quite well rehearsed
Then I shall be content with whatever occurs.
This kind of enlightenment cannot be outlawed.

What might I do right now to enhance my chances
Of as quickly as possible feeling better
Than I feel at this moment? That is the question.
When it is asked then enlightenment has begun.
If it’s not asked then I become the begetter
Of a life full of unwanted circumstances.

What can I do to sync up more fully and more
Consistently with the source that is within me?
I must be aware and care about how I feel
And to act only when I am feeling some zeal.
When I’m there I can milk the feeling easily.
I can sense more connection than ever before.

I can stumble into a state of feeling good
Quite by accident. It’s an opportunity
To keep up that momentum by just finding more
Of the good thoughts and feelings that I most live for.
I can shift in a moment and be completely
In a new world of wonder in all likelihood.

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.

Nirvana

Personal Heaven On Earth

Nirvana means breathe out. What a relief that was!
Let it go because it will come back if you do,
But if you hold on to it you will suffocate.
Who on earth would want to be caught dead in that state?
A person who has reached nirvana is one who
Is blown out in accordance with natural laws.

There’s no moralism in this whatsoever.
Just let go. Do not cling to anything at all.
If you put your hand near fire you know it will burn.
If you want less anxiety then you must learn
How to let go completely. By dropping the ball,
It will bounce back when you’re ripe for the endeavor.

Keeping up with the rat race is part of the game
But a minuscule one when compared to relief
That surpasses the ego’s will to cling tightly
To that which isn’t fun anymore. You will see
That you have all eternity. Life isn’t brief
When you know that the universe is yours to claim.

So, relax and let the forces of evil be.
Let the world heal itself without your discontent
Because you’re no crusader when you are uptight.
Breathing Out has no view on what’s wrong or what’s right.
As you do so you will find that it’s time well spent.
You will become a master eventually.

Let In What Is Already Done

...You Can't Undo It.

When you say that it’s possible, what you’re saying
Is that you know it could be, but it isn’t yet.
When this is your underlying vibration, then
You’ll expect only failure again and again.
What is already done are the things you can let
Be your experience and with no delaying.

When you say that there’s something you want to attract
That sounds like you don’t have it, which never is true.
Everything that you’ve wanted is held in escrow
And right now it’s accessible. It’s good to know
That your wishes have been heard. All you have to do
Is line up with the feeling of virtual fact.

The larger part of you has become everything
That you’ve ever imagined could come true for you.
In the moment of asking, it’s done already.
You must know it with passion, then it comes to be.
Operating from scarcity, things that you do
May defeat your intention. Despair that would bring.

When something isn’t done there’s some anxiety
Due to timing, impatience, and feelings of lack.
When it’s done, you don’t have to try harder. It’s Done!
You have done all the work. Now kick back and have fun.

Know that infinite intelligence has your back
And will guide you to where you have wanted to be.

Life Is Not A Straight Line

Contingent And Natural Asymetry

Your success is the product of many failures.
You may earn a trophy for participation
But not so in the business of getting ahead.
Everyone does something to keep family fed.
How we do it depends on our preparation
Yet the life path is fettered with many detours.

Our society doesn’t prepare us for what’s
Really needed to be successful in business.
Most of us incur losses and disappointment.
There is no business model designed to prevent
All the pitfalls contingent to final success.
Persevering through difficult times does take guts.

Life Is Not A Straight Line. It can have twists and turns.
In nature, lines of straightness one will rarely find.
The way things grow in reality is more so
Like a circular motion as upward they go.
It’s a roundabout pattern wherein we’re resigned
To uncertain conditions where the spirit learns.

Up and down go the stock markets. Painted ponies
On the fast carousel of the world casino
Are controlled by their riders and popular whim.
It remains your decision to sink or to swim.
You can discipline your disappointment, you know,
Then your path convoluted is taken with ease.

Are There Good And Bad People?

Judgment Is Of The Judge

Another doomsday message that will not be heard
Through the oceans of white noise and others voices
Is today what is offered. My daily routine
Has to do with recording whatever I’ve seen
On my path. And it turns out that I make choices
Contingent to dichotomy and what’s preferred.

Human Nature demonstrates we all are this way –
Always ready to judge something evil or good.
Attitudes form unconsciously and instantly.
That is why it’s so difficult to see clearly
Through the sea of opinion. In all likelihood,
My perceptions are weighted and often betray.

What is liked or disliked by any entity –
Be it person, a sports team, a nation, or skin –
Become part of our makeup. What e’er we decide
Will direct our behaviors. Our egoic pride
Spells disaster for earth. We commit mortal sin
On the largest of scales and with impunity.

Everyone oscillates between means and extremes
Of behaviors along spectra. No one is one
Or the other completely. The space I create
Will evoke good or evil. I’ll not complicate
What is raw truth and feelings. Then growth is begun.
On the global scale, are things as dark as it seems?

Evolution Through Disruption

The Cost Of Living Buisness

All the worst of my problems alone I create
Through the master controller of identity
On the personal level. I’m doomed to attack.
For the rest of my life here I’ll just watch my back.
Evil doesn’t become me, but insanity
Seems to be what consumes me and authors my fate.

The abstracted part of me – the self not made whole –
Is only form identity. It’s not the same
As the timeless consciousness that I am truly.
Everyone is that essence with none else to be.
With this form I am subject to sorrow and shame
That I feel often times to the depths of my soul.

Oneself can’t be perfected. It’s like whack-a-mole.
Once things are put to order, something falls apart.
Never ending the struggle it is to portray
A complete living model. And I must obey
The aspect of disruption. It strengthens my heart
Just to know of the sick truth I cannot control.

Evolution of consciousness cannot take place
In a world picture perfect with no suffering.
One would dance on the surface of life and not grow.
Compassion and deep insights one can’t come to know.
Disruption in my life is a wonderful thing
If I can learn to trust it as God’s loving grace.
