Gratitude Makes It Happen

Open Heart Mastery

In a big way I’m selfish. It’s all about me.
There are so many wishes that I want fulfilled
And I’m totally satisfied with where I am
Even with all its chaos. I work a program
Where I get most things done because I am strong-willed.
Am I somewhat disgusting? I don’t want to be.

Through experience I learn the way to behave.
Because I am hard headed there’s no other way.
I’ve learned that when I don’t care, things turn out alright,
And I don’t have to struggle, much to my delight.
My resistance vibration causes me dismay
Can I weed out the habits that do self-enslave?

The entire world is revolving around me
And every one else. It’s counterintuitive
At this point, but it will not be for very long.
There’s an uncanniness to my getting things wrong.
It’s a specialized talent that I’m made to live,
But I don’t have to use it if I let things be.

All in all, it’s a good life. I am grateful for
All the things that still thrill me. I appreciate
That I can be excited without anything
In the outer world causing it. What it can bring
Is an ease of contentment. When I’m in that state
I expect and am showered with blessings galore. 

Focused Upon What Matters

Ignore Everything Else

Focusing on what matters is the thing to do,
But just what in my boring life makes my heart sing
Loud enough that attention is not difficult?
Thinking too much about this yields no good result.
I appreciate what feeling better can bring
To the soul with some foolish reason to feel blue.

Knowing not what it feels like to have tons of wealth,
Need I waste time pursuing it? Much can be done
With a whole lot of money, but life energy
Is of ultimate value. My focus must be
On allowing its flowing by having more fun
And by developing habits that support health.

Energy and Alignment is my major aim.
Money and creature comforts are some byproducts
Of allowing the energy to freely flow.
How I feel about my life is how I best know
If I’m on or off track. If I feel my life sucks
Then I must change the way that I’m playing the game.

Infinite Energy is available to
Anyone who allows it. It can be pinched off
By joining some crusade that involves being pissed.
If I feel my life’s boring it’s hard to resist
The temptation to find some position to scoff.
Happiness is the reason for all that I do.

Open Doors

Many Opportunities

The balance of the universe vibrates between
What exists and the lack of it. If I’m able
To identify something I truly desire
Then the absence of this thing I want to acquire
Does exist. It’s important to remain stable
And to practice some positive mental hygiene.

From the point of my saying that I want something,
Through my thinking about it, one or the other
Side I give more attention to. What comes to be
Then depends upon which one feels better to me.
Only it or the lack of it can but occur.
This concept does not have to be mystifying.

Feeling lack about what I want only delays
Its arrival in my life. I’ll give attention
To my reasons for wanting it and my belief
That its coming is imminent. I’ll find relief
In my trusting the universe to get things done.
I can maintain my balance in myriad ways.

But the best way to open doors to everything
That I find most delightful is to acknowledge
Now the positive aspects of what I’m living.
The universe is intent on its giving
Whatever is asked of it. On this leading edge
Of creation, I find my life most fulfilling.

It May Stretch Your Skull

A Profound Mental Challenge

Problems should have solutions and questions; answers.
In a world most ideal that would be much the case.
But this world is imperfect. Among all its flaws
Is the notion that everything is run by laws.
Yet answers and solutions often come by grace.
As they manifest they become mood enhancers.

You’ve tried everything you know to get something done
But it just will not happen. You’re at a brick wall.
There’s a point where your will becomes too exhausted.
The confounding issue is too much for your head.
You may cry passionately, “To hell with it all.”
That’s the point where some enlightenment has begun.

There are two aspects of self. One is the ego
And its conscious and subtle unconscious power
The other is the natural organism
Of the psyche. In this world we need both of them.
When they’re well integrated the self will flower.
Giving up may be needed in order to grow.

It comes by inspiration, grace, or charity.
Integration of psyche and ego gives one
A colossal advantage in getting through life
Rather than balancing on the edge of a knife.
You can be the master of how your life is run
And it may stretch your skull just a little To Be.

With These Words

Appreciation of the General Perfection

Revel in the general perfection of things
And make lists of all positive aspects there are
Concerning your existence. Source does have your back.
You do not have to tolerate feelings of lack.
Your appreciation for life will take you far.
Do bask in all the goodness your happiness brings.

Thank the sun as it rises for its being there
Whether or not you see it. You know things to be
In some fantastic order that cannot go wrong.
Feel the wonderment in knowing that you belong
In this world of perfection that you choose to see.
Of all good that is happening do be aware.

Your body has intelligence. It keeps you well.
With unconscious precision it knows what to do.
Thank your cells for their doing a fantastic job.
Nothing on God’s green earth has the power to rob
You of absolute happiness. Do know that you,
At the art of fine living, can learn to excel.

On an eternal treasure hunt you truly are.
The universe knows paths of least resistance
To your dreams, hopes, and wishes. Heaven earth can be.
Everything that matters to you is completely
Known and attended to in each life circumstance.
To find your place in living you need not look far.

Problems In Paradise

The Balancing of Apparent Extremes

Sometimes off the wall enthusiasm is mine.
I am so effervescent I scare folks away.
In all things I see beauty. I gush everywhere.
I have reached the point finally where I don’t care
How the world outside operates from day to day.
Yet there is some fear that everything isn’t fine.

The emotional spectrum has high and low ends.
The former is the vortex. It’s hard to stay there.
I can’t milk a good feeling for minutes or days
So, mindful I should be of the various ways
I am tricked into hyping. I must be aware
Of when it feels not authentic to my dear friends.

Often out of the vortex moments can toss me
Into it, and with practice, I’ll stay longer yet
In that place that is peacefully energetic.
There’s some resident boredom when it comes not quick.
It cannot be a big effort for me to get
In the mood of contentment. It’s where I must be.

It is just a brief spiking frequently throughout
A day planned with expecting the best to occur.
I must learn to acknowledge these moments, and then
I can reach that state at will again and again.
It is easy to focus on what I’d prefer.
Staying high in vibration is what it’s about.

Desires

Sweetest Spices Of Life

I can create realities, each different
Than the other, and I don’t need anybody
Else to kindly agree with me. That’s up to me.
Satisfied I am mostly with all that I see.
Life has caused me to tell it just how it should be
In the way that it keeps me just shy of content.

Life, I know, hears what I say and feels what I feel,
Having had my acquaintance for so long by now.
Yet the question is always, Where am I in all
That I’ve asked since I’ve been here?
It hasn’t been small.

All that I need some help with is how to allow
Earth’s bounty to consume me in ways that are real.

All that I want I do not have, and it’s okay.
In the purest vibrational form they exist.
This day has been a good day. I learned a bit more
How to look at life not as a hard karmic chore
But a marvelous mission where souls may enlist.
Tomorrow I’ll do better than I did today.

Tonight’s rest is forthcoming. As I drift to sleep
I’ll attract nothing thought wise. This shell I vacate
To let forces of nature do as they are meant.
There’s no reason why I can’t be much more content
Than I was for today and maintain such a state.
I’ll start off on a good foot. My wholeness I’ll keep.

An Amazing Life

Wholesome Being

Why does ‘what is’ often dominate my life game?
It need not be that way, but the reason is clear.
I put way too much credence in my five senses
Which is fine for the ego and its defenses
But to pay more attention to what we hold dear
Is to live life in absence of sorrow and shame.

Among known ways of knowing, emotions are those
Which are subtle yet potent in how I behave.
We pay little attention to how they evolve
Until suddenly there’s a big problem to solve.
How we feel is important. Much grief one does save
In the process of living as consciousness grows.

I can hear you and touch you and that is okay.
Satisfaction and wonder my senses give me.
But to say that ‘I’m sensing you’ is but to say
I can feel your awareness of me through the day.
There’s a sense of fulfillment knowing I can be
In the state of connection the natural way.

My emotional center I can establish
Then more dominant than the senses it can grow.
My awareness of living is bound to improve.
Personal encounters evidently will move
With the flow of magnificence, and I will know
What it’s like to live life on the cusp of a wish.

Negative People

Out Of Alignment?

One could claim the excuse, “Everyone is this way.
All the world is uptight. More things get on our nerves
Than we can safely handle. So, why not complain?”

When in fact they’re just negative, though not insane.
Every step in the process of living deserves
Its own way of expressing its acquired dismay.

If I find myself caught in the midst of a few
Who are ‘not in alignment’ with all that they should,
It could only mean I’ve got a wobble in mine.
If I need them to act right so I can feel fine,
Misery will be with me, and that is not good.
All it means is that there is some work I must do.

They’re still in the hard asking mode, so they may ask
Really good questions. And I’ll receive the answers
A lot better. I know that I’m stable enough
That I don’t need conditions. The heck with that stuff.
It would be like relying on mood enhancers
That wear off without notice. One’s life is a task.

Giving folks the permission to feel what they must
Gives me also the ok to be negative.
All of it makes the world go round. All is a part
Of the whole of existence. Magnificent art
Is where one is more able to bless and forgive.
One need not endure torment. One need only trust.

Are Other People Real?

The Plasticity Apparent

This question that I must ask of my consciousness,
Wide awake and with focus upon humankind,
May be moot to most others who would call insane
Anyone who would ask it. Within their disdain
Is the key to the answer. Relief may I find
In engaging my asking, but not to excess.

People never are as I perceive them to be.
 Each of us wants to mold into specific shape
What we know through the senses. So, reality
Is just how I perceive it. And this I do see
As a fact most confounding. Is there an escape
From the pit of inscrutable uncertainty?

When connected to spirit, I see through the eyes
Of the source of all of us. The realer they are
They may rise to the image I see as their best.
They’re as real as I make them. This begs to suggest
That the eye that beholds others is just as far
From the truth, as imagined. My, what a surprise!

Chains of Pain are created through my observing
What I don’t care to look at, then adding to it
Some more doubt and confusion plus firm evidence
Of a flaw in the fabric of my existence.
The eye of the beholder sees what it sees fit
To be worthy and justified in its being.
