Good Intentions Can Go Bad

In Lieu of the Left Hand

If you’re interested in the wellbeing of
Those around you, the first and foremost thing to do
Is to give yourself value. Otherwise you will
Be a problem instead, despite all your fine skill.
If you are aiming to be a solution to
Someone’s issues, it must be done out of self-love.

Make sure you’re not the problem a long time before
You attempt to give service. It makes common sense
That if your hands are dirty then you shouldn’t touch
The person of another. That would garner much
In the way of resentment. Indeed the offense
Is sufficiently grave as to bring about war.

Good intentions have screwed things up to the degree
That we’re in many crises. People do mean well
But they are themselves messed up in so many ways
That whatever they do causes undue malaise.
Those who have good intentions create utter hell
If they lack what is needed to most clearly see.

Right now we’re in a mess ecologically
And our growth is skyrocketing clear out of sight.
We can’t govern ourselves without civil unrest.
So like everything, good intentions are the best
When one knows the difference between wrong and right.
Don’t extend the right hand that people cannot see.

A Programmed Life

The Nature Of Balance

Is a lightning flash bad because it only lives
But for just a brief moment compared to the sun
Which goes on for some eons? This question absurd
Illustrates programmed error. The damage incurred
Is to not see that both are contingently one.
Can it be that self-consciousness rarely forgives?

Long lived creatures and short lived belong to the same
World with flowering branches that naturally
Have enormous life spans. Encouraged behavior
Of nature is spontaneous and is most pure
In the ways it expresses its strong will To Be,
And in doing so it has no feelings of shame.

Self-possessed or a dithering personal mess
And embarrassed because of rigid programing,
It’s a rush just to get home for dinner on time.
Traffic accidents are cause by this mental crime.
To schedules quite impossible some people cling
Punctuality fetishes amount to stress.

Time is not of the essence. Hell or high water
Is an innocently uttered lethal cliché.
Take the time to know balance and true clarity.
When the student is ready it’s easy to see
The lessons of the teacher and the proper way
To behave among others as all would prefer.

The Most Difficult Thing To Explain

Existence

Who was I in my past life? Who am I right now?
How long will it take to attain liberation?
These questions all have answers, but who wants to know
Is the one most important if I want to grow.
It all comes back to myself because I’m the one
Who provides the right answer without knowing how.

Yoga teaches that breathing is how I find out
Who I am at my core. Simply I’ll meditate
On the question intently until there’s a clue,
But indeed the most difficult thing I could do
Is explain me to anyone else or placate
Others with my performance while fettered in doubt.

Is the root of the matter to get something done?
Doing things cause problems more often than not.
It’s amazingly simple to just be at ease
With this moment eternal. There’s no one to please
But the self who deserves it much more than a lot.
There’s no doubt in my mind that this life can be fun.

Death and suffering cannot be problems I face.
They’re merely consequences that living creates.
Yet the worst kind of suffering is when I think
That there is a way out, but I’m just not in sync.
That I Am in this moment further demonstrates
My existence is solid and worthy of grace.

Your Vibration

Tuning In To The Real You

It’s Vibrational Beingness that you live for.
Everyone has their own pattern of energy
That is like no one else’s. It needs special care
To maintain wholesome functioning. Being aware
Then acknowledging feeling good more frequently,
You are well on your way to fulfillment and more.

Go to places that feel good as much as you can.
Be aware that this feels good, and keep psychic track.
Try identifying all that makes it so nice.
Make a game of your pleasure. Let your life entice
You to your heart’s nirvana. Your feeling of lack
Is the only thing stopping your working your plan.

Don’t identify with what the place is about.
Just feel good, and don’t try to solve issues while there.
Don’t get into debates with people with issues.
There is no solving of them for the person who’s
Steeped in so much frustration. Life isn’t unfair.
There are laws to abide by to mitigate doubt.

Spend your time looking for that place central to you
That feels good no matter what else is going on.
It can start with a small thing. The sun rose today
And it helped you. Then larger things aren’t far away.
You can check your vibration by what it has drawn.
If it’s not what you want then you’ll know what to do.

Clear Bad Karma

Spiritual Shortcut

The word Karma means action. Whose? That would be mine.
The most dynamic way to exist as beings,
Karma I live through is responsibility
That I have for my own life, and naturally,
It extends as far outward among offerings
As my strongest vibration. With this I am fine.

My life is my own making. That’s what the word means.
My successes and failures are all but my own.
Anytime I can see this in full clarity
Is a time for the crafting of my destiny.
Actions past for which my unclean soul must atone
I can safely call fated as important scenes.

Since my life is my karma no one else takes charge.
The word ‘blame’ has no meaning and is a poor game.
Those who think that their lives are caused from the outside
Have it fairy assed backwards. Were I they, I’d hide
For the lame act that they perform only brings shame
They’re likely to encounter while roaming at large.

My thoughts and my emotions, actions, and focus
Are then orientated to get me where I
Need to go in the business of daily living.
Life is lived from the inside, and in its giving,
I embrace all the drama and not wonder why
I have less time for negative things to discuss.

Tipping The Vibrational Scale

To One's Own Advantage

When consumed in vibration, like feeling my best
At whatever I’m doing, I need to take care
That I won’t then feel guilty. What if the next shoe
That will drop is calamity. What will I do
If my mood begins plummeting out of nowhere?
Can I know that forever and always I’m blessed?

“I have found my beloved. She is my soul mate.
Whenever we’re together our hearts beat as one.
I have wished for so many things that have come true.
Feeling so much on top of the world as I do,
I can know that my asking will never be done
And there is not an ending to what I create.”

I cannot know the bigness of provident grace.
I provide the ingredients through my desire.
Then forces universal take over from there.
All I need do is let go and be more aware
Of assurances given me as they conspire
To surprise and delight me all over the place.

Seeking thought non-resistant, the pleasure therein
Is the mind made more quiet. Can I tip the scale
From my guilt for enjoyment of life here and now?
I must feel myself worthy, then I can allow
What is good to come to me in every detail.
Can I rid myself of my existential sin?

Wonderful things may happen. Amazed I’ll not be
Though it goes against habit. Some work it does take
To where I am expectant of things working out
To my general favor. The presence of doubt
Is a cumbersome killjoy that leads to heartache.
All that I have been asking for will come to be.

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.
