Never Too Late

Speak Your Heart

Life moves swiftly. If you don’t stop and look around
Every once in a while you may miss it. It’s not
About having time. It’s about making time. Your
Relationship with others is a metaphor
For your relationship with yourself. There’s a lot
Of time left for complete fulfillment to be found.

Never be so loyal that yourself you betray.
Be selfish with your time because many people
Don’t deserve it. The most harmful thing you can do
Is believe other people’s opinion of you.
Hang around people that you find most delightful.
In a positive mood always do try to stay.

There will always be someone who can’t see your worth.
Don’t let that someone be you. Never make someone
A priority who makes you but an option.
Growth happens when you do things that need to get done.
You can do that and still have a whole lot of fun.
There’s always an opportunity for rebirth.

It’s Never To Late to do the things you’ve always
Wanted to. You can have results or excuses
But not both. Follow you heart but carry your mind
Along with you. It pays to be gentle and kind
Only in a perfect world without abuses.
Nothing much about this world is worthy of praise.

A Perfect Relationship

Happy Together

What does a lover feel like? How do you feel when
You’re in love? You might say it feels pretty damned good.
It feels like a homecoming and security.
Your heart skips a beat and it does so happily.
Believe that things work out exactly as they should.
You’ve been in love before and your there once again.

Love feels like being appreciated. It feels
Like wellbeing. It feels like a natural high.
Think about how love feels often then you’ll achieve
An attractive vibration so that you’ll receive
Clues and insights. It helps if you focus on why
You desire it. Accept what your true heart reveals.

Be patient. We are all works of art in progress.
When you finally meet someone set boundaries
Right up front and most clearly but in a nice way.
Do communicate nicely but do not betray
Any part of your true self in order to please
The other. Have respect for your own beingness.

You must know when to speak and when to keep quiet –
When to stand up strong and when to give up control
And speak only when words are better than silence.
When you are in love the whole universe makes sense.
Creating with another is good for the soul.
Get prepared for the blessing that hasn’t come yet.

Keep Your Heart Open In Hell

Face In Hades

How can one fall in love with the wholeness of all
That exists when there’s much suffering happening
On the earth? I know that love has no boundaries
But I can’t see the way the enlightened one sees.
Human nature I cannot find interesting
And my faith in our evolution is quite small.

So the frog swimming happily in the clear pond
I can deal with but with the grass snake I cannot
And it goes a bit further. I can’t find beauty
In something that contains ugliness. I can’t be
In that high state of consciousness. All that I’ve got
Is my mind and five senses with which to respond.

All forms are related to all other forms in
Ways that are lawful. If I can appreciate
This, I’ve entered a threshold of understanding
That can result in my consciousness expanding.
While in hell one can stay in a positive state.
Meditation perhaps is the place to begin.

If I stand only in my humanity I
Cannot bear it, but If from perfection I stand
It’s impersonal. I can find true compassion
Between them. I can become an enlightened one
If I wish. I’m empowered by my own command.
Suffering does exist. I cannot ponder why.

Why Do You Want It

Questioned Desire

It’s okay to want something. Some make the mistake
Of talking about where it’s going to come from,
How long it will take, and who will help to bring it
To fruition, but it’s not to one’s benefit
To ask questions one can’t answer. Beating the drum
Of self-doubt only gives one an awful headache.

Think about what you want but stay focused on Why
You want it, for example, it will make you feel
Good in the having of it. Don’t get specific
Unless you’re feeling somewhere between fantastic
And ecstatic, then the universe will reveal
Pertinent secrets to you. Do give it a try.

What’s the vibrational underlying reason
Why you want it? It’s because of the benefit
It will bring you because of what it will provide.
Once you get it, it will make you feel good inside.
But you can feel good right now if you will permit
It to happen. It’s always the happy season.

You want it because eventually you’ll know
Of your power to manifest and you’ll become
Better at it. The energy you radiate
Is your hands in the clay and you want to create
An incredible sculpture. Your power comes from
Focusing on the Why so that good things will flow.

Focus On Why

Joyful Expectation

Why is it so important to Focus On Why?
Because that speaks to your desire generally.
Answering this question puts you in the right place
Of rampaging your way via infinite grace.
Wonderful thoughts can fill up your mind completely.
Answer the question righteously. Do not be shy.

You can answer this kind of question easily,
But if you ask, “Where is it going to come from?
Who is going to bring it? How long will it take?”

You cannot know the answers. Give yourself a break
From frustration. Believe that what you want will come
In good time. From the angst you can get yourself free.

Why do you want what you want? “I want it because
I’ll feel better by having it, and I’m worthy
Of the things that I ask for. I’m the creator
Of my reality, and what I’m asking for
Is a natural consequence meant just for me.
I believe in the truth of spiritual laws.”

“It’s so much fun to get my hands into the clay
And to mold it. I want to feel my own power
And to know that there are nonphysical forces
Working for me. The whole universe endorses
What I wish for, and I expect it to shower
Me with blessings.”
You can learn to speak in this way.

Focus On The Why

The Most Powerful Question

Things should sometimes go my way. I feel left behind
By forces of creation. I want there to be
Evidence here and now that wanting is alright.
I know that it will never be if I’m uptight
As an unwanted consequence. What fulfills me
Is when things manifest. That is my frame of mind.

I run into frustration when I think of where
It will come from or how or when things will take place.
These are questions I can’t answer, so it is wise
To desist with such thinking that will compromise
My sense of worthiness of universal grace.
I know that it is not good if I linger there.

My thoughts are too specific regarding this thing.
What’s the vibrational underlying reason
Why I want what I want? It’s because I will feel
Good in having it. Such a feeling is ideal.
I’d love to radiate goodness to everyone.
Thoughts like these I find healthy and stimulating.

It is good that I think about it otherwise.
Others seem to be happy in doing the same.
I know that it will come. I am the creator
Of my reality. Whatever I ask for
Will happen. It is my power that I proclaim.
It is good that I keep focusing on the prize.

Knowing Truth

Becoming Informed

Harsh judgement for harsh acts performed as I am ill
Keeps the gate locked on unpardoned parts of my soul.
The prison I’ve created I deem adequate
Yet the enemies of me have cause to debate
That no gnashing sufficient is worth my parole.
That I’ve been such an asshole does my spirit kill.

My remorse is reality as is my joy
That the pain is made bearable in my belief
That I need to be punished more than I am now.
Is my healthy survival in trouble somehow?
From my own misconceptions I need some relief
Otherwise I’ll continue to hurt and annoy.

The world is just a word. It is I who exist
And I am capable of experiencing
Absolute truth, but I shall never attain it.
I am guilty of all the sins that I commit.
There is no way of reconciling this damned thing
Yet I must learn to deal with the thoughts that persist.

In the mind there’s a prism that translates pure light
Into many distortions. My illness only
Sees the trees – not the forest. I glean redemption
Through clearing of my faculties. As this is done
It eventually helps me to better see
Somewhere in all the darkness a future that’s bright.

Can One’s Mindset Be Changed?

Can Hatred Be Reversed?

“What’s the psyche of those who…?” One fills in the blank
With the offense committed. Our identities
Set us ones against others. How can this be changed?
It will go on forever because we’re deranged
In that we’re a strange animal wanting to seize
Absoluteness of sovereignty distant to rank.

What’s the mind of the suicide bomber? Who knows
But the dead then crossed over and without the choice?
Humans must fight for what they truly believe in.
Animals protect boundaries. We may begin
To look hard at the future and try to rejoice
Yet we’re still just as animals, history shows.

When my space becomes threatened, I may have to kill
But I’d rather not do it, hence the paradox
Of the human condition. Beliefs that we own
Interfere with our instincts. That’s why we are prone
To such gut wrenching hatred. Our own growth it blocks.
Any nationalism means blood has to spill.

Can we come to the wisdom to end enmity?
If there’s no room in our souls for that to take place,
Then it will translate naturally to bloodshed.
We must kill off the enemy and move ahead
Which is why some think we can’t survive as a race.
It’s always been a struggle. We’ll just have to see.

The Power Of Walking Away

Moving On

Boundaries are a precious thing. When they’re ignored
People will take advantage of all that we are.
That’s just Human Behavior. We all are guilty.
Even without our noticing, we completely
Take advantage of others. Some will go too far
Such that damage is too complex to be explored.

How does one regain sovereignty after it’s lost
Through one’s need for approval? It cannot be done
Unless one has direction and purpose in life.
If these two are not present one will suffer strife
At the comfort of others. But what of the one
Whose value can be purchased at such a high cost?

When I feel obligated to those I work for,
Or to family, friends, or others I may know,
Then I tell them that my time is worth less than theirs.
I end up in a sick game of musical chairs
Where I’m always left standing with nothing to show.
Is there some sense in pondering why I’d want more?

Some people are real assholes, and some… just a bit.
I can love them just as much as I do the kind-
Hearted angles among us if firmly I stand
In my fullest integrity. None can demand
Self-destructive behavior of me. I shall find
That by Walking Away, true freedom I permit.
