Problems In Paradise

The Balancing of Apparent Extremes

Sometimes off the wall enthusiasm is mine.
I am so effervescent I scare folks away.
In all things I see beauty. I gush everywhere.
I have reached the point finally where I don’t care
How the world outside operates from day to day.
Yet there is some fear that everything isn’t fine.

The emotional spectrum has high and low ends.
The former is the vortex. It’s hard to stay there.
I can’t milk a good feeling for minutes or days
So, mindful I should be of the various ways
I am tricked into hyping. I must be aware
Of when it feels not authentic to my dear friends.

Often out of the vortex moments can toss me
Into it, and with practice, I’ll stay longer yet
In that place that is peacefully energetic.
There’s some resident boredom when it comes not quick.
It cannot be a big effort for me to get
In the mood of contentment. It’s where I must be.

It is just a brief spiking frequently throughout
A day planned with expecting the best to occur.
I must learn to acknowledge these moments, and then
I can reach that state at will again and again.
It is easy to focus on what I’d prefer.
Staying high in vibration is what it’s about.

An Eager Mind

A Thirst for Answers

There are so many questions to find answers to.
So, my purpose must be, then, to figure things out
And to share what I find with the people I know.
Is this not the true process for knowledge to grow
So that all benefit and are left with no doubt
That enlightenment is a wise thing to pursue?

Naturally, An Eager Mind draws attention
Of others who find what I ask interesting
Enough so that they offer feedback in return.
Those of like mind communicate with due concern
For respecting the good that the meeting can bring
To the thought generation already begun.

Willingness to be honest and clear in one’s speech
Goes a long way in socializing with intent
To inspire conversation of certain value.
The potential for optimum oneness of view
Is the only basis on which all will consent.
The most productive meeting is well within reach.

Making my good impression should not be the goal.
Volatile is the attitude ego maintains
In the need to express itself. It can be tamed.
The alternative could be for it to be shamed
Into self-recognition. The challenge remains
To express with integrity and self-control.
