Your Greatness Awaits

Happy People

Your species wants for itself to be more aligned
With the principles of peace and understanding
And of joy unimaginable and you’re near
The achievement of this. But for hatred and fear
You would know of your greatness. No one’s demanding
That you do so but true happiness you may find.

It’s your imagination alone that will bring
About these pleasures, joys, and wonders of your hearts
To explore and to cherish. We understand your
Hopes for true guidance. You’re more than ever before
Ready to become masters of creative arts.
Your intention to be happy means everything.

You’ve been seeking your inner worth with earnestness
But when you strive toward anything you push it
Away from you. By wanting less you will gain more.
This conundrum perplexes you right to the core
Of your beings. It would be to your benefit
To look inward where you will have better success.

Your capacity to love is great. Once you know
This you’ll see yourself above earthly existence.
Your inner spirit will rise as you’ve commanded
Because your consciousness will have been expanded.
As your teachers we have unyielding confidence
In your love and in your propensity to grow.

The Neuroscience Of Mindfulness

Color Brain

Mindfulness is the practice of being aware
Of all the elements of the present moment
Without getting lost in the future or the past.
One can simply take in what’s perceived as contrast
And not be triggered by it. Be in the present
Where your power is. In inner peace you must care.

Mindfulness changes the neurobiology
Of fear by how the brain processes stimuli.
The brain stem and the limbic systems operate
Out of fear. They will too often try to dictate
What’s important in the moment and this is why
They will lead us right smack dab into misery.

What happens when we’re stressed is that information
Doesn’t reach the frontal cortex. It remains stuck
In that part of the brain that’s in survival mode
Constantly. And if no information is flowed
To the thinking brain then behavior runs amuck.
Mindfulness therefore is helpful to everyone.

The subcortical looping can be overcome.
Mindfulness strengthens the activation in the
Frontal cortex. If we can name the emotion
Then it’s deactivated. What will have begun
Is a process of rational activity
And the angst of the moment you will be free from.

Patience

Colorful Time

One of the most virtuous qualities of pure
Being is patience. It is the capacity
To accept or to tolerate trouble, delay,
Or suffering without getting stuck in dismay.
Fortitude, composure, and equanimity
Are the attributes of patience that will endure.

Patient people are much better able to cope
With negative situations and folks without
Complaining, getting angry, or acting rashly.
One’s capacity for patience naturally
Will increase as one begins to know without doubt
It’s true nature and essence with regard to hope.

Understanding one’s true self is understanding
Others’ also. Instead of becoming upset
With yourself, others, or a screwed-up circumstance,
One can realize that there’s a much better chance
Of recovery if one is willing to let
Go of what keeps one’s consciousness from expanding.

We need to eliminate anger from our minds.
The lower levels of consciousness we transcend
As we open our hearts to higher truth. Patience
Becomes a dynamic and fun experience.
Energized by intention one can comprehend
Spiritual alignment and joy of all kinds.

Insight

Spatial Inspiration

Insight is the ability to have a clear,
Deep, and sometimes sudden understanding of some
Complicated problem or tough situation.
It is closely related to intuition.
The all-knowing universe is where it comes from.
It comes usually when the heart is sincere.

It’s a capability of the mind beyond
The intellect. It’s a penetrating mental
Vision or discernment of seeing into or
Apprehending the true nature of a thing. For
Those who are seeking wisdom, the transcendental
Nature of insight will get spirit to respond.

Insight becomes more clear and sophisticated
With advancing levels of consciousness. Insight
Can be used to determine how truthful someone
Is being. One can ascertain disposition,
Mood, and motive. It comes as a special delight
When the mind beyond ego is activated.

Solutions via insight have been proven to
Be more accurate than non-insight solutions.
Mindfulness meditation can facilitate
The refinement of insight. One can calibrate
To the level of everyday resolutions
Of issues. Every new problem is a breakthrough.
