The Astronomer

Nature Versus Lecture

Listening to the astronomy fellow speak
All the figures and proofs were arranged before me
In columnar fashion. The charts and diagrams
I was told to get used to. Too many exams,
Insufficient comprehension and apathy
Contributed to my feeling stupid and weak.

Much applause in the lecture room does the one get
Where I, sitting, unmoved by whatever was said,
Wonder how I got myself in this conundrum.
More upset and alienated I become.
No reason is apparent that I should feel dread
At the thought of my engaging with a known threat.

Until I rise and glide out I find no relief.
It is better for me that I wander alone
In the elsewhere that’s only a few steps away.
There’s no way in the vast universe will I stay
Captive to someone’s letters. Indeed I must own
How I want to feel. Life on this planet is brief.

From time to time in the mystical moist night air
I look up to the heavens in perfect silence
At the stars and feel better. So what have I learned?
It is probably that I should not be concerned
So much with someone’s lecture. It makes better sense
To behold the true teacher and become aware.

Stable!

Fluidly Fixed And Secure

Your reality is something you shouldn’t face.
Instead you should create it. The big difference
Is that, like fluffy mulch floating on the river,
Facing life means you do things you wouldn’t prefer.
But your creating it is only common sense.
Knowing where you are going, your dream you embrace.

There’s always something coming to you. You can’t turn
Off your point of attraction. Things that come to you
Come from one of two vibrations – where it comes from
And the state you are in. Do reflect on this some.
If you’re doing something that you know isn’t true
To your nature, this is a matter of concern.

You can say that you didn’t quite get out ahead
Of the issue. You let your established mindset
Form the realness of what you have been observing.
People will rise or lower to your expecting.
Train your expectation so that you’ll only get
What you really want. This cannot be enough said.

Have you been letting your environments tune you?
Do you drift and cluster with those who are the same
Only to discover that they’re quite different?
Pluck the sweetness from life. Don’t let small stuff prevent
You the freedom of choice. You have treasures to claim.
Create the environment that you know is true.

Reset Your Energy

Get Life Moving Again

I want to feel wellbeing, and I want to thrive,
But I feel weak and vulnerable to disease.
When my body and things around me are unwell
All my passion about life is gone straight to hell.
If someone has an answer give it to me please.
There must be more to living than staying alive.

By my deciding how I want to feel and by
Rendering how I feel now as unimportant
I can help myself greatly. The way I feel
Is the most important thing. In order to heal
I must release resistance. If I feel I can’t
Then it can’t be a problem for me if I try.

I can make an emotional jump. I can feel
Just a little less worried. Relief I can find
By finding thoughts that give me a reason to be
Optimistic. I recover naturally
By asking questions specifically designed
To get me to the place where my body can heal.

It’s an issue of energy and how it flows,
Or does not, through the body. My emotions are
Indicators. I don’t have to figure out how
To feel just a bit better. I need but allow
Wellbeing to take over. I’m not all that far
From an energy reset that I won’t oppose.

Let Go And Trust

Relinquish The Fear

A man was with his mother when she transitioned
To nonphysical. It was ‘anticlimactic’
As he put it. There was a sense of impatience.
He fell victim to his self-created suspense.
Should the death of someone ever be ‘fantastic?’
Digging deeper into this case cannot be shunned.

She made her transition peacefully and calmly.
Her spirit was waiting for the perfect moment
To let go of this world. She has now reemerged
Into that which is nameless. Her spirit was urged
And she followed without issue. Gladly she went.
The next logical step was the one come to be.

Yodeling down the canyon was not what he saw
Nor the kind of excitement that would scare someone.
The question that needs answered is how does he make
The best of it. The answer is to come awake
To the fact that she’s not dead. Illusion is spun
From beliefs that are fettered in fiction and flaw.

He created the drama that did not take place
As expected. Her spirit was more in control
Of the whole situation. His acknowledgement
Of his not letting go and trusting the event
Proceeds as it is meant to has rendered him whole.
His connection with her he’ll now fully embrace.

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.

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.

Connect To Fast Energy

Hook Up To Lightning Fast Power

It is normal to evaluate our progress
Through the physics of this world. We want to compare
What we have with others’. We try to overcome
Gravity, inertia, speed, and our momentum.
Practicing meditation or consummate prayer
Guarantees us some indication of success.

Meditation means focusing on stopping thought.
When we do so, resistance must also subside.
This allows our vibration to rise to a state
Where we are more able to connect and create
With the fast energy that is freely supplied
And that will help us to attain that which is sought.

There’s much power in this. Most folks are competing
With others, trying to edge one another out.
This madness is mundaneness and disrespectful
To ourselves as a species. To resist the pull
Of the negative aspects of our fear and doubt
Is the challenge that only keeps on repeating.

Our impatience is justified, yet we rarely
Are connected so that time works in our favor.
We may slog around trying to move things along
Until we are exhausted knowing it was wrong.
Rendezvous with the moment and learn to savor
What’s available to you. It’s fast energy.

Surrender To Your Worthiness

Goodness Embraces You

We may often fall victim to comparison.
In our determination to feel unworthy
Or subservient in some way, we’ve concluded
That for everything there’s a price to pay. With dread
We consider becoming who we want to be
So it is hard to get almost anything done.

The only price that you pay is your alignment.
Your absence of resistance is all that you need
To feel that you’re surrounded by a nucleus
Of wellbeing. In fact, it engulfs all of us.
Know that in your surrender to it you are freed
To pursue anything that’s to your heart’s content.

Often we pay with struggle by thinking that we
Haven’t jumped through enough hoops or kissed the right ring
To deserve something different, and our armor
Prevents blessings from penetrating to the core
Of our beingness. Success does not effort bring,
And hard work is not needed for prosperity.

The meek will inherit this earth someone once said
A long time ago. He meant the non-resisted
Lighthearted, free feeling folk who are allowing,
Not angry or determined but understanding
And accepting of the goodness that lies ahead.
Surrender To Your Worthiness. Don’t be misled.

Life Is A Vacation

Relax Into Life

No manifestation can take place in spirit
Because physical substance does not exist there.
That’s why those who are in spirit are focused here
On this leading edge. In this perfect atmosphere
They observe and have guidance they most gladly share
With those who are willing and able to hear it.

Manifestation is the most spiritual
And authentic part of the creative process.
This path of culmination is co-creation
Between ourselves and spirit because anyone
Who is open to spirit will have more success.
It’s sublime if it can become habitual.

That Life Is A Vacation is becoming clear
To me as someone now physically focused.
Blissfulness begets boredom in reality.
That’s why spirit allows for resistance to be
One of our standard choices. We must learn to trust
In our gut feelings always to mitigate fear.

To the things we want the path of least resistance
Is revealed. If you’ve got resistance going on
Then you can’t see the path and put too much effort
On achieving things. Your sweat and tears only thwart
What is coming right to you. Conclusions foregone
Favor this fine vacation within the expanse.

Talk To The Future Self

Inspiration From Within

Time is such that it falls within eternity.
Thus we’re able to visit, whenever we choose,
Other versions of ourselves. The information
We get from such visits may be the solution
To the issues we have now. Is this not good news?
Connection with the unknown does set the soul free.

Someone wants to get pregnant. In fact, it’s her goal.
Her desire to bring forth a child is very strong.
But for now she’s unable. The contract she made
With the spirit forthcoming cannot be betrayed
But by worry and doubt. She did get before long
Information from herself about this new soul.

Passion is what is needed to gain the insight
To proceed with the present. Also you must trust
That it’s not about time. It is about timing.
You can contact your future self just by being
Open to information. All that is discussed
Between you and your future you is only right.

We are all in the trusting mode every moment
Of our existence or else we could not exist.
You don’t have to ‘learn how’ to trust. Simply decide
On exactly what you will trust. You can confide
In the guidance of your future self. Do resist
The temptation to doubt what comes to the present.

Dealing With A Controlling Spouse

Following a long illness he decided to
Retire early. His spouse became the caretaker.
Which he appreciated, but lately she’s been
Obsessive about it. He does not like it when
She controls his activity. He would prefer
Less attention paid to him. What should the man do?

She believes she is doing the right thing, of course.
She refuses to listen to what others say.
Corrective meditation does him little good.
It is difficult when things are not understood
By them both, and they just cannot go on this way.
If continued it could even lead to divorce.

It was a good co-creative attraction in
That he needed some caretaking, and she was there
To provide it profusely. He doesn’t care for
What he’s attracted and cannot take any more
Of what he now considers her abusive care.
Communication is the best place to begin.

He could have some fun with this and make it a game,
Using words carefully so as not to offend.
“I needed some caretaking. You’re magnificent!
But I didn’t need meddling or constant torment.
You’re an awesome controller, but I am your friend.”

Understanding is needed or things stay the same.

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.

Life Is No Brief Candle

The Focal Length Of Existence

Do Mondays excite you? Do you anticipate
Getting back to work? Do you look forward instead
To the weekend approaching? Are you unfulfilled
In you life and dissatisfied instead of thrilled?
Do you stick with it because it’s stuck in your head
That security means do something that you hate?

Life is not a brief candle but a splendid torch
That you have gotten hold of. You were not sent here
To wander aimlessly. Your time and energy
Are wasted by your wallowing in self-pity
Obstacles come and go, so don’t hold on to fear.
The fire of your passion is one that will not scorch.

It’s not necessary to be a great leader
Or the head honcho of a big corporation
To consider yourself powerful and mighty.
The street sweeper, plumber, and poet can all be
The creator magnificent in the long run
As long as they are doing what they would prefer.

If you’re stuck at a job that’s not your cup of tea
Then perhaps it is time to put your fear aside.
People may call you foolish for quitting without
A ‘back up plan.’ They will try to introduce doubt
Into your equation. People are not your guide.
Your reward will include happiness and safety.

You Are All Involved

The Cooperative System Of Being

Psychologically it is more conducive
To release from illusion to remember that
The thinker, feeler, or the experiencer
Is part of the experience. One can refer
To each part and come up with a complex format
To embellish its meaning and how one should live.

Out of anxiety we try to stabilize
And keep permanent the ‘separate’ observer
Which causes conflict. It is more that memory
Is a dynamic system. It definitely
Is not a storage system. It is, as it were,
A repeating of rhythms that we realize.

The ongoing flow of present experience
Is such that we can’t distinguish between something
That is known and a memory. We cannot know
Anything until we remember it, although
Different cues attached to memories will bring
A bit of continuity to our presence.

Present experience cues are different from
Memory cues. They have not the same vibration.
All experiences are part of the present.
No witness can be separate from the event,
And the whole process is engaged by everyone.
If you don’t know your place in life, this may help some.

There Is No Name For It

Existence Unspeakable

In this universe there is One Great Energy
That there is not a name for. A few that are tried
Like Brahman, and the Tao have a greater meaning
Than does God because that name is often leaning
In peculiar directions. One cannot decide
For oneself what’s the nature of divinity.

One substance is existence. It’s fascinating
That anything came to exist. Much easier,
Then, it would have been had there been nothing at all.
The effort and energy needed isn’t small.
It’s an on and off system. We are, as it were,
And are not at the same time as we do our thing.

An infinity of functions it does contain
And of this elegant suchness all are a part.
Now you see it. Now you don’t. The Yang and the Yin,
Like the crest and the trough and the particle spin,
Are a principle that can be taken to heart.
In the naming of suchness there’s not much to gain.

Good will never once and for all triumph over
Evil. ‘On’ will never finally conquer ‘off.’
By indulging in the illusion we become
Disillusioned. The spirit may grow cold and numb.
Then creation becomes like a persistent cough.
The mind is a place where the nameless can’t occur.

The Unspeakable World

Silent Beingness

If you talk all the time then you will never hear
What anybody else has to say. And the same
Goes for thinking. If you think too much of the time
You will not know what life’s about, and that’s a crime.
Does this mean that such people should be put to shame?
I resemble such folks just to be somewhat clear.

Subvocal conversations, the constant chit chat,
Symbols, images, talk, and words rob consciousness
Of its essence. The real world is unspeakable.
We tend to give everything some kind of label,
But in doing so we interrupt the process
Of perceiving things fully. Can we deal with that?

Several colors we can see, yet we are blind,
And with all the notes in the scale, we cannot hear.
Leaves are not green and flat. These are tags we assign
To something that is nameless. We are by design
Objectivity leaning and fettered with fear
Of a world without order of the human kind.

If we stop fixing conceptions and learn to see
Everything as it truly is – magnificent,
The infinity of sound and color will be
Our experience. It will come naturally
With some practice. It’s definitely time well spent.
The world that is unspeakable is clutter free.

The Most Frightening Thing About Death

Fear Of The Ultimate Unknown

In answer to the question, “What’s your state of mind
As you’re contemplating the possibility
Of everything becoming nothing?”
there’s nothing

To refer to but our beliefs. When pondering
What death will be like, some may struggle terribly.
To think about such a thing they are not inclined.

The ’what if-ness’ of death is what people go through.
Avalanches of questions that can’t be answered
Flood the physical systems, yet what’s the trouble?
We’re like foam on the water or like the bubble
Or the puff of smoke. We know death can’t be deferred
People can’t conquer it no matter what they do.

Why don’t we want to give up? Just what do we think
We will get by remaining here a while longer?
It is ever so easy. Let go, and dissolve!
It is necessary for all life to evolve.
We cannot tear away from the way that things were
Even though our lives were not always in the pink.

The most frightening thing about death is that there
Might be something beyond it. It’s a mystery.
Yet the world is full of threats from other people.
Knowing whether to be regretful or thankful
Is all part of the death focusing fantasy.
There is no existence with which we can compare.

The Center Of The World

From Your Own Perspective

Westerners find it difficult to imagine
The kinds of mystical trans-theological
Experiences that Eastern cultures know well.
Science dictates our perceptions. It’s a hard sell.
So, the image of God fits not our rationale.
Therefore all theists are living in mortal sin?

It’s a way of articulating the absurd
Ways of thinking that come with the disconnection
Of God from our observations. What we believe,
Through our logic and everything that we perceive,
Is that every problem must have a solution.
Spirituality is forever deferred.

The state that one achieves during meditation
Is one where one can experience total bliss.
Symbols, imagery, and chatter that flood the mind
Fade into nothingness. One becomes not confined
By perceptions. Bad influences you dismiss
In the moment. You are at peace with everyone.

The hub of the universe is the central pole
Where stillness and movement coexist and are one.
Movement is time, and stillness is eternity.
The sense of life is realizing this to be.
It’s a resting point on your life’s journey begun.
Being there more often does wonders for the soul.
