Listen With Your Heart

Social Conflict

Everything that we know we must know in a way
That upsets and causes people to congregate
And wreak havoc in public. No one can deny
That the world is in trouble and no one knows why
Because it’s complicated. What can be our fate
If in a state of peace we’re unable to stay?

The cause of human suffering is in the mind.
We process information as symbology
That we treat as the truth which is a huge mistake.
Be discerning of all the agreements you make
With yourself and with others continually.
Be grateful for the smidgen of peace that you find.

Learn to be skeptical but Listen With Your Heart.
It’s were truth resides but it can be distorted
By your words and symbols. They turn out to be lies
When within you there’s a tendency to despise
And the peace that you want remains unsupported.
With oneself is where one must be willing to start.

Use the power of doubt to challenge everything
Offered to you but listen to what’s being said.
Mastery of the human mind requires complete
Attention to your inner truth. It’s when you meet
Up with your heart and try to stay out of your head
That you’ll come to some kind of an understanding.

Between The Lines

Flowers And Lines

Everything that exists is one being. You are
A mirror that reflects light and I’m looking in
The mirror. What prevents me from seeing clearly
Are my own misperceptions. What I want to see
Is the light but there’s smoke in the way. It’s akin
To the darkness that happens with a dying star.

I can’t see the pure love. I’ve a distorted view
Of everything. Ever since I was a child I
Had made many agreements with those who raised me
And with governing structures of society.
Seldom did I ever think to ask myself why
Living up to most of them was so hard to do.

We have been told our entire lives that we need to
Respect elders and authority and we’re told
That we aren’t good enough to pursue certain things
And that thinking about doing them only brings
About failure. We succumb to these manifold
Destructive affirmations and bleak points of view.

Most agreements that I’ve made are old and worn out.
Some are not even truthful. I need to get rid
Of the ones that are no longer helpful to me.
Once the smoke begins clearing how nice it will be.
What’s been done that’s not working can now be undid.
Making new agreements is worth thinking about.

Living Masterpiece

Personal Expression

Your Vortex of Creation is your masterpiece.
You’re the artist, the musician, and the actor
In a world class performance while live and on stage
With other entertainers who love to engage
In expressive activity. What could be more
Satisfying a form of energy release?

If you don’t have enough money what do you do
To maintain your existence? You need to pay rent
And keep food on the table. Don’t think about it.
Negative emotion will not help you one bit.
Instead of freaking out your time is better spent
Focusing on what brings absolute joy to you.

Your Vortex knows what you want. You’ve been putting there
Incrementally all that you’ve been asking for.
You can access what’s in there by staying happy
Even though it feels like there’s no reason to be.
That’s why you need to focus on what you adore.
Give your Point of Attraction your utmost of care.

Keep your undivided attention on the thing
That consumes and enthralls you. If you wrote a book
That’s not selling then write another one because
The first one wasn’t done according to the laws
Of the universe. You can transform your outlook
To one which is not you with your ass in a sling.

Your Inner Voice

Intuition

Are you willing to listen to that Inner Voice
That no one else can hear that says, “You can’t tell me
What I’m here for.”?
It takes a certain fearlessness

To face up to its message. You are nonetheless
Capable of compliance. It wants you to be
In a place where your life is a thing you rejoice.

Do what you want because of the passion you feel –
Not because of the money, prestige, and fanfare.
Do not write a book or get another degree
Unless you feel deeply that’s who you’re meant to be.
There will come a time when not a person will care
Much about you. The probability is real.

Your Inner Voice whispers. It will not speak loudly.
You must get quiet to hear what it has to say.
Don’t confuse it with the noise of your intellect
Which is loud in comparison. Do redirect
Your attention to silence. You will in this way
Get insight from your state of receptivity.

You know which voice to listen to. It’s the sane one –
The one that will guide you to where you want to be.
The voice of the ego train yourself to ignore.
Your Inner Voice can offer you a lot more
In the way of living your life more happily.
Do behold your magnificent journey begun.

Seeing Clearly

Wisdom

I believe self-reliance is something that I
Meant to learn here but didn’t. The time that remains
I must use expeditiously. Had I been born
Under different circumstances would the scorn
That I feel for myself yield to me any gains?
This question is ridiculous and I know why.

My focus needs adjusting. The lessons I need
To learn are automatic. I need not depend
However on pure happenstance. I’m free to choose
The time schedule. There isn’t any time to lose.
Years remaining accentuate the subtrahend
From the total. I now have to pick up some speed.

Had I lived in an orphanage I would have been
Self-reliant in no time but that’s not the way
It turned out for me. I can learn from my mistakes.
I can also accept life’s many lucky breaks
But in doing so I’ll take care not to betray
My own purpose. I’m taught this again and again.

I can begin to see my life not just as a
Series of accidents, failures, and huge mistakes.
Everything that has ever happened plays a part
In the dharma of my life. I take this to heart
When I think of the past and all of its heartaches.
In a state of self-soothing I’m willing to stay.

Forgiveness Is The Plan For Now

Sincere Prayer

In this world there is horror, unspeakable pain,
And depression. The hatred for one another
Is appalling. How does a world turn out this way?
Are there powerful sinister forces at play?
There are two sides. One can pick one or the other.
Those who don’t pick one are the ones driven insane.

It’s beyond devastating what you have gone through.
There’s no way to describe it only that it’s more
Than you thought you could handle. You cannot deny
Your own feelings of hatred as hard as you try.
Some relief from the pain is all you’re looking for.
Nothing short of a miracle will comfort you.

There’s a plan with a purpose which is to restore
Everything to its oneness. It’s in place right now.
You cannot accept it in the past or future.
Now is the only time that you have to secure
Peace of mind. It is you who must choose to allow
The true sense of wellbeing that you had before.

The ego tries to convince you that you will be
Happy when you see justice but your spirit knows
What you want more than you do and it’s not to hate.
The world also has much you can appreciate.
Bring the dark and insane episode to a close.
You can decide to relearn to live happily.

What Is The Meaning Of Life?

Mixed Meanings

Maybe it’s just a dark phase or maybe it’s true
That the soul of humanity cannot be healed
Of its hatred, conceit, and insatiable greed.
If life has any meaning then why is there need?
Why is human behavior such a battlefield?
Life is twisted. We have a narrow point of view.

Everyone has a task that they came to complete.
Unempowered personalities aren’t aware
Of the soul and its calling. They take refuge in
Getting external power. They think they will win
The big prize. It’s a big challenge for them to care
About injustice as long as their life is sweet.

But it cannot compensate for the lingering
Sense of inner emptiness. Something is always
Missing in life. Be at one with what you’re doing.
Your soul lets you know what you should be pursuing.
In your bliss you do not have to deal with this phase
Of extreme darkness. Continue to do your thing.

When you’re aligned with your soul then you’re empowered.
You feel energized and alive doing what you
Love to do. It doesn’t have to be some big thing
Like curing cancer. It can be simply learning
Something new and exciting. So keep your hart true
To your soul’s calling. Passion within you is stirred.

The World Really Is Round

Fettered Earth Connected

There are on average two mass shootings per day
In this country. We are already violent
And we need education on our history.
Now in Florida children are taught slavery
Was just fine even though people suffered torment.
We were born with injustice and that’s just our way.

The insane circus taking place clearly reflects
The ill health of this nation’s heart. Threats are the way
That people now communicate. The biggest one
Is of civil war where everyone has a gun
Like the wild west. It’s hard to find good things to say
About us. We’re a story not all that complex.

The south never conceded. We’re at war right now
And will be until we change fundamentally.
War will be waged in courtrooms and legislatures
As belief in a workable process endures.
The republicans are the confederacy
As the union becomes democratic somehow.

But the earth is round. The orange buffoon is guilty.
Vaccines work and the Holocaust really occurred.
The south will not rise up again. Misogyny
And racism will not take over this country.
All proud oath keeping bigots are only one third
Of the populace which brings some relief to me.

Find The Meaning Of Life

Life Scape

In your life what have you always wanted to do?
Are you doing it now? Or are you on the way
To fulfilling your purpose? There’s nothing to fear
But fear itself. The path before you is made clear
In your heart and you cannot afford to betray
That which generates passion from deep within you.

You cannot live your life in your mind. You must go
Out and seek your life’s destiny. Fear of the past
Or the future is useless. The present is where
You should focus. It’s important for you to care
About now and it helps if you remain steadfast
In your quest. There is nothing else you need to know.

And it’s not trial and error. It’s simply getting
Off your ass to do something indeed anything
That moves you in the proper direction. It will
Help you more than if you decided to sit still
In your comfort zone. On it you don’t want to cling
Lest the loss of what you want you’d be regretting.

Often times people will start fulfilling their dreams
But when they near the end the journey becomes more
Difficult and they stop seeing the light at the
End of the tunnel as a sign of hope. They see
A milestone hard to overcome. What you ask for
You receive. It’s not just the way everything seems.

Pay Attention To Spirit

Nonphysical Awareness

Spirit Speaks. That’s a given. The question is how
It does so. Its language I fully recognize
In a few ways. When I feel good or I feel God
I’m aligned with my spirit. I don’t find it odd
That by just being happy I can realize
The full presence of Spirit. I need but allow.

Spirit Speaks when I’m in alignment with nature.
If a bird, for example, performs before me
In a way that’s not normal, I pay attention.
I take in the perfection of time suspension
In the moment. My Spirit urges me to see
Its connection to nature. I know this for sure.

Strange occurrences and seemingly odd events
Is my Spirit lining up coincidences
That may teach me some lesson or show me that I’m
In alignment. I don’t have to spend precious time
Coming up with sophisticated defenses
Against what each synchronicity represents.

Spirit also speaks through other people who I
Interact with. My Spirit is aligning my
Thoughts with events that are happening here and now.
My Spirit has the ability to endow
Me with absolute clarity. I can’t deny
The existence of Spirit. With it I comply.

Practiced Resistance

Background Protection

If I put my boat into a fast-moving stream
And I flow with it, do I create the power
Of momentum? Or did I simply step into
What had already been going? Can both be true?
If I take on the consciousness of the flower,
Would I feel my existence as simply a dream?

When I’m in the natural stream of wellbeing,
I let go of all of my Practiced Resistance.
The power of the stream is within me, no doubt.
If I try to be powerful, it keeps me out.
Keeping myself delighted will greatly enhance
The adventure. The stream is ever agreeing.

I’ve stopped trying to figure things out anymore.
It indeed is a problem especially when
I am writing. Sometimes, I’m too much in my head.
I know that I should write from my feelings instead.
The words flow like the stream does. I’m satisfied then.
I have much less resistance than I had before.

I do this for the fun of it. All that I write
Is for pure entertainment. I’m not trying to
Convince anyone of anything, so feel free
To delight in the power that’s flowing through me.
If there are those who think that I haven’t a clue,
I’ve the freedom to not let it get me uptight.
