The Ego

The Ego is nothing other than the focus
Of one’s conscious attention. It’s like a radar
On a ship. It behaves like a troubleshooter.
If there’s anything ‘out there’ changes will occur
In the ego’s behavioral patterns which are
A completely and woefully weak part of us.

Don’t identify with your radar because you
Will be in a state of constant anxiety.
You’re the whole organism. When you realize
That you are then the ego is not a disguise
But an asset of value in this raging sea.
Each radar is designed to give its point of view.

The body is a miracle of harmony.
Systems function together to keep life afloat.
Yet corpuscles have creatures at battle always.
This must happen. It is how the whole body stays
In balance. The war supports the health of the boat.
A magnificent work is the human body.

What is discord at one level of your being
At a much higher level is perfect order.
Energy is behind physical existence.
Between them there’s a dance of powerful suspense
Your ego is no more than a tape recorder.
Don’t let it put untruth into what you’re seeing.

One Last Thing

Get Happy!

The vortex of creation is a search engine
For the infinite universe. Many search terms
Represent our emotions. Each generous smile
Generates a vibration that is most worthwhile
For attracting the good life. Your feeling confirms
All the grace you’re allowing to find its way in.

So find something to bask about. Appreciate
Something you love already, then do it some more.
Meditation is also a tried and true way
To get into that vortex and hopefully stay.
Many good things about life there are to explore.
There are many avenues to your feeling great.

You have done all the legwork and all the sifting
And through data collection you’ve put it all there –
A lifetime of hopes, wishes, and dreams to come true.
There is One Last Thing that you are required to do.
Just let go and Get Happy. Take in the fresh air
 And let the universe do the heavy lifting.

Life is for your expansion. All that may occur
And how you feel about it, even the contrast,
Causes you to expand into a newer place.
The discord and injustice one cannot erase
But your inner alignment can keep you steadfast.
You can always decide to feel as you prefer.

Perfect!

As I’m sifting through contrast, the variety
Of the things I don’t want in my life I welcome.
It means that I’m alive, and what life is about
Is accepting all circumstances with no doubt
That they can get much better. The best rule of thumb
Is to trust that the universe does support me.

I’ve a deep relationship with that part of me
Who is larger, much wiser, and connected to
Everything in existence. Emotionally
I can know that my inner self wants me to be
At the peak of perfection. All that I need do
Is desist from the struggle and dare to be free.

If I have not expanded to a newer place
I would not feel the discord of not being there.
If I have not become it, then I wouldn’t feel
Discomfort about it. It is meant to reveal
What I’d like to see happen, and with utmost care
Negative episodes I may learn to embrace.

Where I am now is perfect from the point of view
Of my innermost being who sees everything
As a work in the making. There always will be
Something new to desire. I’m eternally
In the process of being more and becoming
Ever closer to perfect than what is now true.
