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.

Not Everyone Gets It, And It’s OK

Trickle Down Enlightenment

First of all, I don’t get it. Let’s be more than clear.
It’s a thing that a lot of folks can’t comprehend.
Like a sense, it has subtleties huge and complex.
It is rigid in outlook with all due respects
To the best that it knows with no need to pretend
It gets it absolutely while ignoring fear.

If I’m tone deaf it means I can’t hear melodies.
In the musical world they are called intervals.
I cannot hear relationships between the notes.
Currently there are no viable antidotes.
With that kind of condition I’m caught by the balls
In a circumstance that feels a lot like disease.

One can also be deaf philosophically.
One who is rigidly logical in their ways
Must expect things to happen according to plan.
There is too much incentive to do what one can
To avoid knowing oneself so consciousness stays
In a state of stagnation unfortunately.

I may know all the words but not so the music.
The relationship between the cause and effect
Is that they’re the same process composed of two parts.
When I master this aspect enlightenment starts.
There is nothing that is known by mere intellect,
And deciphering oneself is no easy trick.

What The Universe Asks

...Before All Is Given

I would like a nice boat… maybe even a yacht.
I enjoy being free and having lots of fun.
But is it satisfaction I mostly desire?
If it is, then the boat and all things will transpire.
Everything is available under the sun
But the feeling of needing defeats me a lot.

I can find other pathways to satisfaction
Before things become manifest. Then they enhance
The contentment I find in the things I control,
Like my mood and my attitude. My only goal
Is to feel satisfaction. My now circumstance
Is the bouncing off place where creation is done.

I’m under the influence of something always…
Either my inner being who knows everything
Or some confounding problem I’m worried about.
If I act out of need I will introduce doubt.
If desire is the driving force then it will bring
On a freshness of feeling that will my mood raise.

All the universe asks is that my desire be
Nonresistant – unfettered by feelings of need.
If I try to consider all of the details
Only miscalculation and error prevails.
In releasing the neediness spirit is freed
To attract and create most magnificently.

Give Up The Struggle

When Effort Is Futile

Often times I’m just ‘off’ and don’t know what to do.
It’s like trying to force my fist through a brick wall.
People don’t care about that. I know they should not.
I can’t seem to achieve things that matter a lot.
Why do I feel like I have to beg and to crawl
To the point where I feel so disheartened and blue?

Well, there’s tons of resistance here, right off the bat.
It means there’s an imbalance in my circuitry.
I could increase my effort to solve the problem…
Or decrease the resistance, or do both of them.
Effort I cannot increase. I’ve no energy
So the issue renders me flat as a doormat.

I must know when the struggle is too much to bear
Long before it becomes such through conscious intent.
That ‘off’ feeling vibration is something to heed.
It’s a clear indication that I hardly need
To waltz myself into a disgusting event.
That I’m not feeling my best I must be aware.

If the wall needs a hole in it, that can be done
Through alignment and focus on what is worthwhile.
The best way to go about it will be revealed.
Through the gift of acknowledgement all may be healed.
This simple information is worth a big smile.
The whole purpose of doing things is to have fun.
