Perpetual Change

Inevitable Constant Motion

Nothing is permanent except change, it’s been said.
Sofa crevasses and pants pockets may contain
The answers to the questions that everyone seeks
Regardless of how people may think that change speaks
To the sensitive psyche. Does this sound insane?
If it does, you know that this message should be read.

“It has always been like this,” most people will say.
This excuse is a catchall for not taking charge
Of the things that need changing. Indeed they can be
Any way that you want them. One just has to see
From a far vantage point where the picture is large
And all possible outcomes are in full display.

You don’t have to keep regurgitating what is.
Things do change. They just keep changing to the same thing
If you keep focusing on the same thing always.
The world constantly changes. If for you it stays
In a state of stagnation what good can it bring?
Life is no prison sentence nor is it a quiz.

You can think about things in a different way.
Look at life through the lens of broader perspective.
Different places, different faces… same thing.
If you want change to happen then stop worshiping
Things that have been and are now. They’ve not much to give.
You have nothing but your inner truth to obey.

Empowering News

The Only News Of Value

I consist of two life forms inside of one skin.
One of them is my true self – my inner being.
It is made of no substance – just pure consciousness.

Divine Light is its essence. It wants to express
Everything that is wholesome and spirit freeing.
It will never go back to where once it has been.

The other being is a most personal one
With a flesh and blood ego, personality,
And a growing collection of hopes and desires.
It is that self which struggles and easily tires.
In its quest for its being who it needs to be
It will frequently lose track and feel overrun.

The only difference between the two is that
My true self doesn’t look back. It looks straight ahead.
It’s the forwardmost version of me here and now.
Anything that I want is mine if I allow
Myself to be directed by spirit instead
Of the sad sack who suffers and has it down pat.

There’s no need for defense or justification.
My comparisons cripple and have no meaning
But contrast is a good thing. Without it no growth
Would occur in the one self yet surely not both.
I must go with the one which is forward leaning
Where my issues are weaker and I have more fun.
