Bits Of Wisdom

Printed Information

Hiding from your problems won’t make them disappear.
Working through them is the only way you can grow.
Being true to yourself may lead to loneliness
But it’s worth it. Growth’s often a painful process
But it need not be. If you just go with the flow
Then an answer to your dilemma becomes clear.

Stop being so available to people who
Are there for you only when it is convenient
For them. You learn a lot about people when they
Don’t get what they want from you. A high price you pay
For trying to please everyone. You will resent
Having done so. They don’t recognize all you do.

Being honest may not get you many friends but
It’ll always get you the right ones. You cannot
Heal in the same environment where you got sick.
Be especially careful of the friends you pick.
Those who will support you when you’re in a tough spot
Are the best because their intentions are clear-cut.

You do harm to your self-confidence when you break
Promises you make to yourself time and again.
Let the improvement of yourself keep you busy
So much that there’s no time for negativity.
All the things that you want can happen for you when
The decision to feel over the moon you make.

The Network Of Consciousness

Human consciousness is at the same time aware,
Understanding, and sensitive, yet ignorant.
The most ordinary everyday consciousness
Leaves out more than it takes in, and in the process,
It discards much importance. The mind simply can’t
Take in all that there is. Such a gift would be rare.

If we could extend our awareness to include
Those things that we leave out, then a deep inner peace
We would know, which is something that we should not know
According to the rules of society. So
To get the lowdown on life it’s best to release
Everyday understanding which is a bit crude.

A fabric interwoven so as to reflect
On front and back each other’s opposite pattern
Is the same as all life is. The bad and the good
Comingle in a network that is understood
To be the way it is, but it’s of great concern
How extremes in a troubled world interconnect.

Our sense organs are receptive and selective.
They pick out from a tiny band of frequencies
What we know to be real to us, and as we grow,
Newer instruments invented will help us know
More of the universe’s possibilities.
There’s still much to be explored from our perspective.

The Cosmic Collective

Human consciousness is at the same time aware
And is sensitive to its own understanding,
But it also is ignorant of many things.
If we know what we shouldn’t then this knowledge brings
On a much deeper knowing about everything.
Yet our everyday consciousness can’t take us there.

Our sense organs are selective. They will pick out
Certain things they’re receptive to but that is all.
The electromagnetic spectrum is so wide
And within a small segment is where we reside.
Our perception of everything is fairly small.
We take in very little and tolerate doubt.

Consciousness leaves out more than it cares to take in.
That’s the way things are set up in this here and now.
Yet because of this what it’s programmed to ignore
Would be helpful in quelling our horrors and more.
Is there some way on this earth that life may allow
Us to be more enlightened? Where would we begin?

Though it is wise and natural that we’re this way
We gain some understanding through what we access
Through our forms of technology and practices
Of the nature of spirit, and what this all says
Is that we are given the choice to acquiesce
To the grace and the power of forces at play.
