A Small Tuning

Toward The Clearest Vibration

There are some reasons to ignore reality.
One can just find that feeling place and wallow there
In the bliss of contentment and that is okay
If you do find some peace in living life this way.
It’s in no way dynamic yet you are aware
Of the fullness of yourself and how you should be.

In your ignorance it’s easier then to feel
Your way into that state where nothing can go wrong.
Tuning into your wholeness, focused attention
You give to all of life. There’s no need to mention
The ignorable horror which is a sad song.
Are you called Pollyanna for not being real?

Undivided attention to life you shall give
After some hibernation – enough to get you
Feeling passion for something that you already
Love to do when you’re being the best you can be.
It is not complicated, this thing you must do
In order to live the way that you want to live.

When someone asks, “How are you,” do speak what is true:
“I have never been better. Angels have blessed me
With a world of abundance. I’m in paradise…”

You might blow them away, but they must pay the price
For their asking. You can be assured they won’t be
Calling you Pollyanna or messing with you.

The Last Holdout

The Resistance Of Thinking

What is the difference between wishful thinking
And true knowing? What if it’s appreciation
For the life that I’m living for every reason
That is positive? Now is the perfect season
To find bliss in pure nothingness and the warm sun.
There’s no reason to think that my world is shrinking.

The bounce I do appreciate from a bad place
To a better one, or I could choose not to see
That there is some relief and continue to whine
When I know deep down inside that everything’s fine.
I’ve played that game for so long. I’d rather be free
To be in the mode of receiving divine grace.

Unseen forces that make worlds also orchestrate
The movement of all matter, and every event
Is already assembled. I just have to be
A cooperative component willingly.
If I do so, I’ll save myself useless torment.
All I have to do more of is appreciate.

I know what feeling good is and how to get there.
Staying there is an issue I still must work on.
But I can’t figure life out. That’s already done.
So instead of thinking I should be having fun.
To the geekiness in this verse do give a yawn.
Being not The Last Holdout, my heart I must share.

Sunday With Spirit

Peaceful Transformation

Nothing is wrong in Kansas as far as I see,
And I must see it that way if I’m to survive.
Transformation of vision comes with some practice.
Things that I believe wrongly I’m free to dismiss.
All that I know I’m ready to sort and archive.
Everything I belong to becomes part of me.

There are people who care about me that I know.
It is not out of pretense that they express it.
Had I not thought that these people had it in them?
The light of my life force shines but ever so dim…
Much too often and too much for me to admit.
Is it time for what I hold to kindly let go?

Awakened to the true love that does surround me,
Do I feel not deserving still due to my shame?
And can I show my sorrow, although it is true,
To myself and the universe? What can I do
To receive people’s love? Does this life that I claim
Have a sense of direction spiritually?

If my life had no guidance then would it be so
That I have many choices to throw me off track?
If I offer the question, my path I must know
At a much deeper level. It’s time I let go
Of constant self-undoing and never look back
At the life gone asunder played out long ago.

How To Pray

Asking Intently

I have prayed for so many years for certain things
But it seems that the more that I do, the harder
I feel about receiving the things I pray for.
I always wonder if I could do something more
For my wanted manifestations to occur.
I lose faith in my meaningless prayer offerings.

This puzzle of thinking is familiar to some.
I’ll include myself in this. I often forget
That there are two different ways that one can pray…
Out of neediness or thankfulness. And which way
Proves to be more effective? It’s an easy bet.
Just because you feel needy, you are never scum.

All prayers are not answered in the order received.
They’re addressed instantaneously in the mind
Of the Master Creator. Appreciation
Is the best kind of prayer for indeed everyone.
If you ask in a whiny voice you will not find
That your prayers have been heard and all has been achieved.

Pray from inside your happiness. Be thankful for
All there is in your life that is most wonderful.
Don’t pray from scarcity or from feeling that you
Are not more than deserving. You’ve nothing to do
But believe your magnificence and be grateful
For what you have already. Then you’ll receive more.

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. 

Free From Opinions

Escape The Noise

To be free – truly free – of people’s opinions
Cannot be but an intellectual desire.
It echoes through the person of pure confidence –
Of the one who need only to make of it sense
Of the mind liberated which then may acquire
All that’s needed from nonphysical dominions.

The approval of others some see as pure gold.
It feels good in your face as you take in the breeze.
If they speak in the negative, badly you feel.
It may be stressful when people start to get real
Unless you’re made to see just as your stressor sees
Then you’d be satisfied with whatever is told.

Getting positive feedback is an addiction
Of the psyche. It craves more with each message heard.
It can be devastated with on lethal blow.
Yet it must come from somewhere, this thing I must know.
Feedback comes from a place where the spirit is stirred
And from where all due glory is already done.

Depend on the feedback of your inner being.
It’s feedback that you want, and your source can provide
Every praise that the healthy ego cherishes.
The big cloud which is your human doubt perishes
In your inner being who’s always on your side.
Simply learn how to make it your daily wellspring.

Self-Love And Appreciation

Personal Ecstasy

Know that your inner being loves and adores you.
You need not feel conceited or shy in the least.
You come into connection with all that it knows
By thinking thoughts that feel good – not those that oppose
The ones that your true self thinks. Much can be released
That is causing resistance in lieu of a clue.

As you think thoughts that beat up on yourself, others,
Or the circumstances in your life, you vibrate
To those energies and attract more of the same
Situations. Then you have no one else to blame,
But you have full control over what you create.
Your true self is at peace with whatever occurs.

You can keep a journal of positive aspects
Which is nothing more than a notebook called the same.
Write down in it all good things you happen to be.
If you’re not finding many, eventually
They will come. It takes practice. So make it a game
And delight in the feelings your true self reflects.

Absolutely imperative it is that you
Come into alignment with who you really are
Which means you must adore yourself. Do find a way
To uncover your worthiness without delay.
Being in love with yourself is not that bizarre
Compared to all the negative things people do.

With Just A Small Tuning

A Minor Adjusting

To not look at reality is to ignore
What people have created out of nothingness.
So, to do so and just find that ‘feeling good’ place
Is the way to receiving every kind of grace
That the world makes available. And nothing less
Than a little adjusting can offer you more.

Ignore reality because it’s easier
To feel your way to happiness. Then you can tune
To the whole of who you are so that you can give
Undivided attention to how you can live
In a state where you are virtually immune
To the nonsense in real life that’s damned to occur.

A naive Pollyanna people may call you
For ignoring reality just long enough
To let happiness fill you with life energy.
But when you express the way things happen to be
You may blow their socks off with such powerful stuff.
People may stop their asking you, “How do you do?”

So With Just A Small Tuning the world you create
Through your intent and focus is all that you need
To explore your magnificence and be aligned
With the best self you can be. Be ever inclined
To define your reality. Dare to succeed
At the art of excitement. There’s no need to wait.

Freewheeling Focus

The Wheel Of Feeling

Focusing is a habit quite easy to learn.
It is most beneficial in clarifying
How I feel about something I truly desire
Or of some earthly station to which I aspire
And it is spiritually edifying.
As I practice it helps me to better discern.

I can focus on things that are other than nice
With but minimal effort automatically.
When I do I create troublesome momentum.
I cannot then complain of the heartache to come.
But to focus on the things that make me happy
Is an intimate pleasure like sugar and spice.

People are doing focus wheels often these days.
Exercise of the psyche causes rescripting
Of the negative aspects of my here in now.
Through the process of writing I best can allow
The buildup of emotion. It is everything
As opposed to pure logic and its stringent ways.

I like being a poet. I do fairly well.
I produce tons of content. It comes easily.
I do know people read it and find some delight.
There’s no doubt whatsoever that I’m doing right
By the spirit with me. I am proud to be
One who’s learned a few secrets. I’m willing to tell.

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.

Heaven Is Right Here

Behold The Perfection Apparent

This earth can’t be like heaven. So much has gone wrong.
The human infestation is reaching its peak
As they make the globe warmer before they die out
Due to incompetence and spiritual drought.
This perversion of heaven is wildly oblique.
Heaven should be a place where all do get along.

What if it were true that this is the leading edge
Of all consciousness – where spirit meets physical.
Culminating and manifesting through us all
Is the source of all being. That we should stand tall
Is the message they offer to the rational
And to those who are not. Be it their solemn pledge.

This would be quite the bummer for those who are not
Good at sifting and sorting selectively so
So the negative patterns practiced over years
Are the fuel that will feed their most challenging fears.
But for all others, this is a fine place to grow.
That’s why spirits like to incarnate here a lot.

Reaching for the hereafter while we are still here
Is not why we have come here. We came to engage
With this wave of creation with source energy
Ever conscious and present with us totally.
We’re right now on this time space reality stage
And it helps quite a bit to avoid the austere.

The Best Thing You Can Do

Make a Party of Life

It’s a pleasure to be alive. It’s so much fun
To behold dreams becoming real before my eyes.
All good feeling or positive emotion means
That I’m accurately translating through my genes
How my Source feels about things. It is for me wise
To maintain the connection my karma has spun.

My Source is always transmitting positively
Its definitive signal of love absolute.
I know that I’m connected when I realize
That I am part of my Source. It opens my eyes
To unknown worlds of splendor – the succulent fruit
Of a life filled with passion most definitely.

An extension of my Source I am and always
It’s aware totally of everything I do.
This is all I need know in order to survive,
And my Source knows what I need to prosper and thrive.
It’s profound adoration I feel as a clue
That we are most compatible throughout most days.

In the mode of receiving I am when aligned
With my Source’s perspective. One thing I can do
To be nice to myself is to offer love to
Someone else. It would be clearly out of the blue
So their faith in their own Sources they can look to.
In the loving of others I am redefined.

The Game Of Satisfaction

The Game Of Happy Living

As I’m having a good time and things go my way,
I delight in the process and manifest more
In the way of fulfillment. I may go along
Until some ‘what if’ happens and something goes wrong
When I’m faced with an issue that I can’t ignore
Then I must find the best way to feel more ok.

History and old habits have nothing to do
With the new ever presence that this moment holds.
My thoughts are where I left them last, and there they stay
And become a trip hazard some God awful day.
Do I have any say in how my life unfolds?
Getting rid of the old stuff makes room for what’s new.

I can stop the self-sabotage. I’ll think about
The issue in a way that feels better by far
Than the dwelling upon it. ‘What if’s’ can be good.
A game can be made of life that is understood
To leave me in contentment. The way that things are
Shall evolve as they should. I have nary a doubt.

So, I do keep a journal; this one and one more
With a line down the center and separate sides.
On the satisfied half go all happy events.
On the other, the troubled heart and its contents.
Putting them in a new place, I’m making great strides
In my human development – none like before.

Problems Create Solutions

Every Piece Is Important

Things are meant to go through changes. That is the way
Of this physical universe. All that takes place
That is seen as not wanted provides the answer
To the realization that I would prefer.
It supplies all desire, this particular space,
And the Law of Attraction I can’t disobey.

The only choice I have is between abundance
And the lack of it. At once, not both can be done.
Plastic in the world’s oceans causes much distress
To the creatures and my conscience. If I express
Enough comment about it, then work is begun
By the infinite forces on the circumstance.

Such an issue can become fuel for the future.
The notion is not farfetched given we’ve evolved
First through coal, then through steam, then to jet engine fuel…
Nuclear, then to solar. Desire is a tool
That can be used to get most of our problems solved.
How this universe functions we can know for sure.

I believe in infinity – not the finite,
And that there is more than less. I know that something
Occurs more than does nothingness. I’ll take the thrill
Of the answers forthcoming, if I learn to chill.
Can I practice the joy that my wanting will bring?
It is best that I see that my future is bright.
