You Are A Miracle

You Are Of Divine Essence

You don’t focus your attention on how to get
Your thyroid gland to function just as you do not
Have to give your attention to the sun shining.
Birth and death are both puzzles not worth defining.
Understanding yourself to you matters a lot.
You control everything without breaking a sweat.

Everlasting nonexistence cannot exist.
Consciousness is unending. You never began
Nor will cease as pure spirit. Not in a dark room
Will you be locked forever as some folks assume.
What awaits is all part of an infinite plan.
The miraculous part of you can’t be dismissed.

It’s a yoga – a kind of realization
To consider what it was like after waking
Up after not having really fallen asleep.
In the vacuum of consciousness you get to keep
Your spiritual essence. Remain painstaking
In your quest of true happiness. All else is done.

As a being you’re fantastically complex.
Never having learned how to do all that you do,
You do it with perfection. The same energy
That is you is also all existence, you see.
In a scientific sense you are the one who
Makes it all happen as your consciousness reflects.

Becoming Nothing

Contemplating Nonexistence

Nothingness is of something. It causes distress
Among many folk. People don’t want to go there.
The fear of Becoming Nothing is very strong,
But of nothingness can there be anything wrong?
In their everyday living people do not care
To examine the topic were they to confess.

At the prospect of all your efforts vanishing…
Your achievements and attainments turning to dust,
How do you feel? Do you find it most depressing?
Most people need something onto which they can cling.
The concept of nothingness to them is unjust,
So they find within it absolutely nothing.

But what if the fundamental reality
Is of nothingness? Where does beingness come from?
By saying we are all basically nothing
We release the resistance everything can bring
To the present moment. The eternal outcome
Of everything is nothing. But how can this be?

Nothingness is like the emptiness of deep space.
It contaminates nothing. Its pureness is clear.
Yet it holds the whole universe. The sacred void
Is of spirit. Do not be fearful or annoyed
At the prospect of losing all that you hold dear.
Join the party then dare to be nothing with grace.

Not Stupid Enough

Pipe Dreams And Reality

One day this world will prosper in myriad ways
Which include those of spirit and earthly comfort.
People will be enlightened. There will be no war
Nor defective world leaders as there were before
And are now. Folks will give one another support.
Money won’t be a source of incessant malaise.

Our technology will evolve to the degree
That life will become simpler and yet more complex
In our ways of connecting and keeping in touch.
Menial work will vanish, and there will be much
Interesting employment and many projects
To fulfill one’s ambitions indubitably.

I believe this will happen. I’m no pessimist.
I’m not stupid enough, though, to think that it will
Happen within my lifetime. Some time it will take
For our consciousness’ to be fully awake.
We must learn how to deal with our instinct to kill.
Much of our fear and hatred will cease to exist.

If a few people blossom… a hundred or so
That will be quite fantastic because they can reach
Many others and multiply. We have done well
In the much larger picture. The story we tell
Will be one of our growing. Those willing to teach
Ways of love are the ones who will help us to grow.
