Redefining The Flow

Toward A Fulfilling Life

Life is meant to be simple – not hard and complex.
My vortex is full of things I’ve been asking for.
They are manifesting into reality
According to how much I can let my life be.
They come in perfect timing. I live to explore
The abundance of my world with all due respects.

Sometimes it’s an idea – sometimes an impulse
Or the words of some stranger I’ll happen to hear
That will trigger a positive change in my style.
It’s uncanny how often the truly worthwhile
Happenstances upon me when I have no fear.
There is no turning back. The ill past I expulse.

Everywhere all around me there’s a constant flow
Of cooperative components filling in
The grid of my reality. Being aware
Of it all as it happens is taking good care
Of the spiritual person who dwells within.
In this way I can best avoid my feeling low.

I do not have to tackle single handedly
The bull’s horns or the universe. All I need do
Is relax and let everything fall into place.
I cannot be determined with redness of face,
The illusion of onlookers to cater to
Is not one beneficial to them or to me.

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.

Finding A Negative Belief

Looking For Trouble

Belief systems control us. We know that they do.
If I have chosen something that’s dragging me down
And don’t know that I’ve done so, I’m in a bad way.
My actions may confound me, and my thinking may
Be unclear about most things. I don’t want to drown
In the river of my life while absent a clue.

It’s a viable concept that I can accept
At face value. It leads to the question of why
I believe in something that does me little good.
The issue isn’t complex if well understood.
To get to the root of it I’m willing to try
To discover the mystery that is well kept.

I may seek the approval of others like me
Who share the same circumstances and the same ills
Of the spirit and psyche. It’s hard to move on
When the life force within one has picked up and gone
Totally catastrophic with negative thrills.
This cannot be the way that I meant it to be.

Once I know what is keeping me from being who
I am truly, pure nonsense it all seems to make.
Then I can let go of it. To bring to the light
What is eating away at me is only right.
The pathway to discovery that I must take
Is the only one I have. I can make it new.
