Naivety Trouble

Funny Together

Women want to know different things about men
Like how tall they are, what they do for a living,
And perhaps how well they are at conversation.
If you find yourself in a love situation
Then you know that it’s all about what your giving
To the relationship so that it will strengthen.

Women want men who they cannot manipulate
First and foremost. They don’t want someone who’s naïve.
If a man believes everything a woman says
Then it’s probable that he will make poor choices
Regarding life in general. One can deceive
Such a man easily. It’s a negative trait.

Even if she’s planning to cheat on you she still
Wants to know that you can wake up to this and show
Your righteous indignation. If you can’t see through
Her conniving then something’s the matter with you
In her mind. This is something that you need to know.
People will take advantage of their own free will.

A man who can spot threats in his environment
Is attractive to women. When you show you care
For her safety and comfort she will honor you
For your wisdom and valor. In all that you do
Make sure that compromise and affection you share.
Tending to your relationship is time well spent.

Never Beg

Asking

Never Beg someone to be in your life. If you
Text, call, and visit and still you’re being ignored
Then it’s time that you moved on. It’s called self-respect.
From your higher self you don’t want to disconnect
Because by that self you’re most profoundly adored.
Walk away. It’s the honorable thing to do.

Love yourself for what you are instead of hating
Yourself for what you’re not. When you feel insecure
You can either let jealousy consume you or
Use it as motivation for you to do more
To better yourself so do your best to ensure
That you know the reality you’re creating.

Those who love you for who you are – not for what you
Can do for them are the best kinds of people in
Your life so honor them. Never cry for any
Relationship ending as there will always be
Another. You can play this game of life to win.
Don’t give up on the loving that you feel is true.

Never bargain with what you really want to do.
One with big dreams is more powerful than the one
With all the facts and figures. Those who can uplift
You in hard times are a most valuable gift.
Once you know who you are a new life has begun.
Find things to do in life that will satisfy you.

No One Is Perfect

I Did It

When was the last time someone stabbed you with a knife?
Such a thing never happened? Then you’re fortunate.
People say things, however, that get you upset.
Many things people say can be seen as a threat.
So how can you remain in a positive state
And get on with the business of living your life?

Human nature is such that it doesn’t know how
To keep quiet. It says whatever comes to mind.
So a mind filled with chatter will spew constantly
Utter nonsense and versions of reality
That aren’t real. They become unconsciously unkind.
Such behavior hurts you only if you allow.

No one likes being spoken to in a bad way.
You should walk away from someone who offers you
Anything but their kindness. Don’t waste energy
On defending yourself. You and everybody
Has a higher self so the best thing you can do
Is ignore the despicable things people say.

There’s no such thing as a perfect human being.
Everyone you know will hurt you time and again
But only if you let them. Your pain is caused by
You and you only. So start asking yourself why
You feel so disconnected. You’ll realize then
That with your higher self it is not agreeing.

Manifest Anything

Fairy Dust

Absolute clarity about what I want to
Manifest I must have first then I can prepare
To receive what I’m asking for. Naturally
In alignment with my higher self I must be.
The momentum increases if I can stay there
In that place where I have an evolved point of view.

I enjoy the excitement that I feel when I
Think about what I want. I love talking about
It with others. My passion may blow them away
Because I have so much about my dream to say
To the world. In my heart of hearts I have no doubt
That with my wishes the universe will comply.

Everything seen was once a thought. All that occurs,
Good and bad, is just a thought originally
So I watch what I’m thinking. If it starts to go
Southerly then I’ll implement all that I know
To get back to good thinking. I love getting free
Of my lower self and the chaos it prefers.

Single-mindedly focused I am on my goal.
The universe yields to both faith and commitment.
Negative thought takes me in the wrong direction
Whereas thoughts that are not enhance my connection
To my higher self where I find extreme content.
Of my point of attraction I’ve complete control.

Windows And Doors

Paths Cluster

Many paths there are in spirituality
So many that it can be difficult to choose
Which one is the best for you but you can explore
Any teaching that helps you to open the door
To enlightenment. Don’t let anything confuse
You about finding purpose and reason to be.

Any path that fuels the spirit of selflessness
Is appropriate. When you learn to surrender
To something that you know is far greater than you
Then you always will know the proper thing to do
In any situation. The path you prefer
Is the one that leads to ultimate happiness.

It’s the path of devotion that opens the heart
To feeling divine presence. Experiencing
The joy of devotion ignites the flame of love.
Once illuminated, you put noting above
Your devotion. Your ministry means everything
As it gives to your life a much needed kick start.

Understanding the universe and yourself are
The highest truths to work toward ultimately.
Spiritual enlightenment is all about
Harmonizing with all that is and there’s no doubt
You’ll rid yourself of much negative energy.
From a life of fulfillment you’re never too far.

Good Things Take Time

Fine Wine

Anxiously I’ve been waiting – for what I don’t know.
Perhaps it’s just the feeling that I belong here
On this earth among others who think normally.
Am I happy with my brand of insanity?
I would be if I weren’t such a pain in the ear.
All the damage I’m doing may help me to grow.

I must learn to be patient. Good Things Take Time to
Reach perfection. I must trust that everything comes
In the right time and way. Although patience is tough
I must care about myself and others enough
That I generate love in significant sums
And for me that can’t be such a hard thing to do.

In this big bustling world people rushing around
Ticking things off their never-ending to do lists
Are obsessed with their hurry-up-and-wait moments.
I’m grateful whenever I can make enough sense
That it helps someone. I’m part of all that exists.
I rejoice in my ability to astound.

And sometimes the best things – the truly amazing
Things in life I’m not ready for or the reverse
May be so. I do not have to watch the paint dry.
I can just focus elsewhere and as time goes by
I can pray that my illness does not become worse.
What I say I hope can be consciousness raising.

When You Feel Like Quitting

Overwork

My life is in the darkest of darkest valleys.
At the moment I search for a means of escape
From this grip of reality but for a while.
It’s been ages since I had a hint of a smile
On my face. My life is in deplorable shape.
Why is it that life has brought me to my damned knees?

Beautiful things can come from my broken pieces.
I can give those shards the chance to turn me around,
It’s okay to be scared and it’s okay to cry
But I can’t quit. I have to give it my best try
Until some powerful breaking point can be found
And my will to continue my quest increases.

Everything that I’m going through is preparing
Me for what I have asked for. It’s in the process
Of becoming. I need to get out of the way
Of it coming and put confidence on display
With my person and focus on my happiness.
My work is in the area of self-caring.

I may not see it now but on the other side
Of this current dilemma I’ll see exactly
Why it had to go this way. What I have is hope
Which is all I need in order for me to cope.
I can know that the process exists to help me
To be with this most fettered life more satisfied.

It Will Manifest Fast

Speed

The much larger part of you is now already
Living the life that you want. What are you doing
In relationship to the expanded being
You’ve become? If you see the way it is seeing
Then you’ll find ease in whatever you’re pursuing.
On the road to fulfillment you remain steady.

The better you feel the more up to speed with your
Larger self you are. The reverse is also true.
If you feel less than happy then you’re nowhere near
Where your expanded being is. It has a clear
View of everything. This enlightened part of you
Has an understanding of what you’re looking for.

You may look into a segment of your life and
You’ll see something that hits you the wrong way. Maybe
It’s a car that won’t run or the state of affairs
Of your world or a possibility that scares
The daylights out of you. What happens instantly
Is the solution to solve the problem at hand.

But you must be receptive. The lag time between
What you want and your having it is created
By your feelings of lack. It Will Manifest Fast
As you let go of resistance and have a blast
With your life. It’s something to be celebrated
By you and by benevolent forces unseen.

People’s Opinions Of You

Looking Back

People’s Opinions Of You are not your business.
Some may hate you. But who are they? They don’t know you.
Let them have their free will. They’re entitled to it.
Don’t let opinions of others cause you to quit
What you’re doing. To thine own self do remain true.
Letting go of the gossip leads to your success.

Make your dreams much bigger than your fears so when you
Feel like quitting, your dreams gain stronger momentum
And you carry on even though everybody
Wants to pour cold water on your reason to be.
Be reminded of where all your power comes from.
If you’re going through hell don’t stop until you’re through.

Life is not fair. It’s difficult. You have to bite
Back sometimes. Like a dog on a bone you must be
So you think but it doesn’t have to be that way
Yet to do nothing has its own high price to pay.
You know best how to navigate bad energy.
There is no way for you to run the rat race right.

If you have haters it means you’re doing something.
If you have none you don’t have the motivation
To do better. So get as many as you can.
Enemies could fit well into your master plan.
If you woke up this morning then celebration
Is in order. Rejoice in what this day will bring.

Hip Pocket Philosophy

Thinking Statue

Intellectuals say simple things in hard ways
But artists say hard things in ways that are easy.
Does this have some significance to anything?
If it’s true then what manner of sense do I bring
To the world with my writing? I don’t want to be
Verbally enigmatic. But do I need praise?

If it turns out I’m needy then am I someone
Who will run from the rain yet take well to the sea?
Am I one who thinks of injustice only when
It is happening to me? What can I do then
To evolve into the person I want to be?
That I’ve erred is my life then pure retribution?

Poetry is what happens when nothing else can
In the moment. When the heart has something to say
It must say it in whatever language it speaks.
Self-expression is all that the happy heart seeks.
I can manipulate words as if it’s child’s play.
There is nothing wrong with my being my own fan.

About what matters in life I still am learning.
As a student I look up to those who are free
Of this schoolhouse and who also help me to write.
Channeling information brings me much delight.
Now It’s become my Hip Pocket Philosophy.
I trust that my desire becomes ever burning.

What Happens When We Die?

Transition

We arrive with amnesia about what is real.
All of physical matter is an illusion
On a scale so immense that it boggles the mind
Made of matter. Within the illusion we find
Not a way that we can come to the conclusion
That this physical world cannot be the real deal.

All that exists is spirit. Imagine being
Not of substance yet conscious and fully aware
Of yourself as a spirit. Would you not want to
Sink yourself into something that would put you through
A process of relearning? Nothing can compare
To an out of the spirit world way of seeing.

What Happens When We Die? We return to where we
All came from. We become like children once again.
Our loved ones and our closest friends are waiting there
For our coming to be with them. Fully aware
They are of what we’re doing. They celebrate when
We arrive back in spirit. It’s the place to be.

We must choose between the violence of adults and
The smiles of children – between the ugliness of
Hate and the will to oppose it. We become strong
On our journey as we determine right from wrong.
Through the process we learn what we can about love.
Things of spirit are not that hard to understand.

The Power Of Intention

Speeding Fireball

Nothing happens on this earth without intention.
Not one single thing has ever be accomplished
Without intention. Intention is everything.
Using it properly, it cannot help but bring
About what you want. Everything you ever wished
For can be had simply by focused attention.

Spirituality is about relieving
The pain and suffering of others. You’re aligned
With your purpose when you feel extremely lucky
To be a part of this human community.
Your intention may be that all of humankind
Be a lot more truthful and much less deceiving.

You intended to be here in this time and space.
Everything happening in this moment is your
Single manifestation. It’s all within you.
You’re the consciousness that makes my existence true.
Your intention, now stronger than ever before,
Is a virtual magnet for infinite grace.

Do enjoy what your doing and don’t even care
If it’s meaningful to anyone else but you
Because you’re all that matters. Intend to be free
To be the creative master you’re meant to be.
Be aware of the healing in all that you do.
You have done much already so take comfort there.

Before I Sleep

Sleep Right

If I were hungry I wouldn’t tell you because
The whole world and everything within it is mine.
The cattle of a thousand hills are mine as well.
It would seem that there’s no reason for me to tell
Anyone of my troubles. I’m doing just fine.
The angels are delighted. I hear their applause.

For the most part this day has turned out as it should.
I thank God and the universe and I believe
That tomorrow I’ll be happier than today.
That I wake up to my true self is what I pray.
I would love to remain in the mood to receive
Heaven’s blessings, and heaven knows for me what’s good.

There’s nothing in particular I’m asking for.
I just want a good night sleep. I have no concern
That I wish to have carried into tomorrow
Lest I reactivate some forgotten sorrow.
From heaven I came down and to there I return
With each segment of slumber even if I snore.

I am not the object nor its shadow. What I
Truly am is the light of the world and I can
Change the object and therefore cast a new shadow
On the earth. In so doing I’m able to grow.
I only wish that tomorrow is better than
Today is – this damned hot final day of July.

Fallen

Apparent Defeat

At some point on your journey you will trip and fall.
Things go south rather quickly and you’re caught off guard.
Tragedy, disappointment, and pain are what you
Know too well, and you don’t know what the hell to do
To recover your spirit. It’s pretty damned hard
To be happy when you’re the one who’s dropped the ball.

We all get hit on the blind side once in a while.
You can lose your job, home, car, or someone you love.
What will you do about it? It’s your decision.
You can choose to grow through the pain and envision
Your triumphant transcendence. It’s way far above
Any choice worth maintaining your spirit’s profile.

Some of the greatest things you will ever learn and
Some of the greatest changes in your life will be
Due to pain, so don’t knock it. It is a good thing
As it strengthens the spirit. You don’t have to cling
To the agony aspect necessarily.
Going through pain helps your consciousness to expand.

Sometimes in life it feels like you have to hit back
And do damage to what you think is keeping you
From achieving your goals, but it’s an illusion.
Having grown through your pain you’ll reach the conclusion
That your point of attraction can be trained anew.
There’s no trick to your getting your life back on track.

Gratitude

Giving Thanks

Sometimes in life we pass over the simple things
That surround us that are wonderful to behold.
We shift our focus to the things that chip away
At our spirits, yet we can be thankful each day
For the little things. Don’t let your life be controlled
By the world and its most chaotic happenings.

Once a woman was walking down a busy street
When she spotted a beggar with an empty bowl
And a cardboard sign that read, ‘Blind Please Help,’ so she
Took the sign, turned it over, and wrote caringly.
What she wrote must have come directly from her soul.
Having put change in the bowl her task was complete.

Pretty soon the old beggar heard lots of change fall
Into his bowl. He’d wondered what the woman wrote
On his sign. He asked someone to read it to him.
The delighted passerby was filled to the brim
With compassion and read the beggar’s humble note.
What was written there indeed was not something small.

‘Today is a beautiful day, and I am so
Happy you have the privilege to be able
To see it,’
wrote the woman. Your gratitude brings

True fulfillment and many wonderful blessings.
Gratitude need not always be demonstrable
To others. It’s one way that the spirit can grow.

The Secret To Success

Reliability

A young man who was a technician apprentice
At a factory was guided by an old man
Who had worked there for ages. “Talk less,” the man said,
“And do more. Dedication will put you ahead
Of the others in value.”
It seemed like a plan

That made sense. It was advice he couldn’t dismiss.

The old man retired after a number of years.
By then, the young apprentice was a technician.
He had followed the wise advice given to him,
But the man wasn’t happy. The future seemed dim.
He had not been promoted. The same position
He held from the beginning. That’s how it appears.

He went back to the old man and poured out his heart.
The old man, after thinking for quite a long while,
Suggested to the young man to take a recess
For a day. So he did. He returned to a mess
That occurred due to his absence. The boss said, “I’ll
Promote you to head technician because you’re smart.”

Every time the man felt not appreciated
He would take the day off, but soon, he was let go.
If a lightbulb goes out frequently, it’s replaced.
With the balance between work and pride we are faced.
Do your work, and the blessings will surely follow,
Take nothing for granted in what you’ve created.

This Race Called Life

All Life As One

Once upon a time there was a young fellow who
Was athletic. He had a hunger for success.
Seemingly it was all about winning for him.
He decided to run in a race on a whim.
Competition would bring him extreme happiness.
Accepting the challenge was the right thing to do.

People gathered to see the race. One wise old man
Who attended was quiet while all others cheered
As the boy came in first place, but the boy was proud.
All the cheers and excitement were blissfully loud,
But the old man was silent which was rather weird.
He did not appear to be an avid sports fan.

Another race was called sometime after the first.
Two young fit challengers the boy did overcome,
And the crowd was ecstatic. The old man was not.
To the young boy this silence did matter a lot.
“Where on earth is this quiet old man coming from?
Would it matter to him if I did but my worst?”

The wise man offered him two opponents who were
Elderly and disabled. “Now run with these two.”
But the boy was perplexed. The old man insisted.
The boy won, but the excitement that existed
With the crowd was no longer, except for a few.
This is not the reaction the boy would prefer.

In This Race Called Life, who is running next to you?
Are they weaker? Do you help them to cross the line?
When we all win together, that is the best race.
What the crowd cheers is giving a loving embrace
To your fellow contestants in life. You will shine
As a person. Do consider this point of view.

Be Silent!

Keep Psychically Still

Many times throughout life it’s best not to express
Verbally. There are obvious circumstances
Where silence is the answer. If you feel no one
Understands your feelings, speech is no solution.
If you have doubts about your thoughts then the chances
Of your making sense are significantly less.

Remain quiet when others are judging someone
Negatively. You will get sucked into a mess.
When someone screams and yells in anger and hatred
Being silent will calm this person. If instead
You respond with words you will accomplish much less.
Petty and useless dialog now has begun.

Try to keep quiet when someone else is sharing
Some event in their life quite emotionally.
Interrupting shows them that you really don’t care
Being silent shows them that at least you’re aware
As they are providing you their testimony.
What you think about it is not worth declaring.

A smart person solves a problem, but the wise one
Avoids it altogether. As much as you know
That you don’t know that you don’t know you become more
Than you were in the moment you were just before.
Being silent is often the best way to go.
What you don’t say cannot enter the equation.

Existence Is A Relationship

The Give-And-Take Nature Of Being

Two phases of a single process is a way
To perceive oneself and the world. Unfamiliar
And unfashionable is this thinking to some.
They have feelings of doubt that they can overcome.
Science has proven that this is the way things are.
Notions contrary to this are not here to stay.

Obsolete is the thinking that man is the head
Of nature, yet the naturalists are always
Fighting nature because they do not understand
What it means to be ‘head.’ It does not mean command.
Our racial evolution has seen some delays
Perhaps due to negative beliefs we’re force fed.

Every creature is head of nature in its turn
Because each creature creates the world in its own
Image. All existence is a relationship
Between selves and the world. We need only equip
Ourselves with understanding. Alas we are prone
To discard any common sense we may discern.

No movement of nature constitutes existence
Until it’s related to neurological
Complexes of its creatures. The Complex belongs
To the same word as the sun. We’re meant to sing songs
Of elation. Our recognizing of this shall
Pave the way for a life of wonder and suspense.

The One Who Can

The Surprising One

Can’t is the worst word that is written or spoken.
It does more harm than slander and outrageous lies.
On it, many a strong spirit may be broken.
Many good purposes die to not come again.
From the lips of the thoughtless it springs when they rise.
It robs us of our courage – both women and men.

It rings in our ears like a timely-sent warning
And will laugh as we falter and fall by the way.
Can’t is the father of all feeble endeavor
And the parent of terror and the half-assed chore.
It weakens the efforts of artisans and may
Make the most clever toiler an indolent thing.

It poisons the soul of the one with a vision
As it stifles in infancy many a plan.
It greets honest toiling with open derision
And it mocks at the hopes and the dreams of the one
With the gumption to start out by saying, “I can.”
It will put quite the kibosh on getting things done.

Can’t cannot be a word uttered without blushing.
To do so would be but a big symbol of shame.
Ambition and courage it daily is crushing.
It will blight one’s own purpose and make everything
Seem as if one does not have a stake in the game.
Hate the word with a passion. No good can it bring.

Refuse to let the word find a home in your brain.
As a creature of terror, do arm against it.
It’s the foe to ambition. It bows only to
Courage, patience, and skill. These are only a few
Of the things that defeat it. One should never quit.
Say, “I Can” to your life. You have so much to gain.

The Sieves Of Judgement

Psychic Sifters of Truth

“There is someone among us who is unworthy,”
Said a young man to the old and wise Socrates.
“A disreputable person he is clearly.
When I tell you what he is doing you will see
That our group cannot tolerate folk such as these.
I’ve told you. You can take measures necessary.”

“Before I will do anything you must tell me
If what you say is true. Did you see it first hand?
Or is it only something that you overheard?”
Socrates asked the man who had only one word

Which was ‘No.’ “Then the sieve of truth it cannot stand,”
Said the wise one. “You may have to let this one be.”

“Will you tell me of something good or positive
About this man, or are you here to tell me things
About him that are nasty? If it’s the latter
Then it is best for you to ignore the matter.
The sieve of goodness cancels out your utterings.
Go about your own business and let the man live.”

 “What are you so excited about anyway?
Is it that necessary to come to tell me
Of this thing most upsetting?”
The man bowed in shame

And retracted his story which now seemed quite lame.
Before dispensing gossip will it pass freely
Through the three sieves of judgement? Take care what you say.

Manifest Anything

Personal Magic

A button, a bowel movement, or one hundred grand
Can be manifested with the same attention.
Focusing in the right way keeps one in the mood
To attract what is wanted. Nothing is pursued.
All that comes is a matter of one’s intention
To receive the wellbeing by its open hand.

Jesus went to a village outside Galilee.
He was met by ten men with a dreaded disease.
They begged Jesus, “Take pity,” and he did just that
They believed he could cure them in their habitat
At a distance and not to varying degrees.
They had faith that they would be healed quite completely.

He told them, “Go and let the priests examine you.”
On their way they were cured just as they had believed.

One returned to give thanks to Jesus and he said,
“It’s your faith that has healed you.” Indeed we are led
Past the bounds of reality. What is perceived
By the Christ within oneself shall then become true.

Strong belief and thanksgiving embody the cure
For the ills that befall us. He who shows the way
To a much better circumstance lives within all
Who have some spark of loving grace however small.
Giving up resistance is a small price to pay.
We can all perform miracles if we are pure.

Existence Is A Relationship

The Joy of Spiritual Alignment

That humans are irrelevant is a notion
That is not of good fashion and unfamiliar.
Man believes he has dominion over nature
But the acts of some humans are vile and impure.
In due time we may leave an indelible scar
On the face of the planet. We may be undone.

It’s a simple idea, but understanding
Is one bit of a challenge. Yet actually,
Every creature is head of its own universe
And all make up this world in the way we disburse
Our life owning perceptions. A certain degree
Of acceptance of this is a wonderful thing.

This world is made up of all its many creatures
And their conscious awareness of all they perceive.
It’s an act of creation just being alive
So that our interacting is enough to drive
The process of existence. A grand interweave
Is the heart of creation with many features.

Each creature creates the world in its own image.
Existence is relationship with the cosmos
Through the vast neurological complex each has.
Evolution occurs for us just as long as
Our behavior on earth becomes less bellicose.
Each of us comes to be by the will to engage.

The Game Of Good And Evil

Chronic Theatre Of War

Who knows well the term war games as if in a play?
What theater of warfare and audience hears
Only words that inflame it? Passion remains blind.
Am I real or automaton, absent of mind
Yet with reason and values. The story appears
Darkly human a pastime of moral decay.

Good and evil in balance is not a good game,
But with positive forces triumphant always,
Things would get awfully boring. A more perfect one
Is where good nearly loses, but true loss is none.
By a weird fluke of nature are honor and praise
Special traits of a species that cannot know shame.

Practical is a system where the good side wins
All the time but is never the winner, perse,
And the evil side loses always but never
Is the loser. And this could go on forever.
Successful and ongoing is war fought this way
As it keeps people distracted from all their sins.

Every group of nice people needs one of assholes.
Each becomes the director of the others acts.
As each defines the other, they know who they are.
And each means of encounter must not stray too far
From the issues pertaining to whites, browns, and blacks.
May God’s mercy descend upon our troubled souls.

The Greatest Prayer

Words Of Power

If You Believe, You’ll Receive Whatever You Ask.
In this chapter of Matthew, so much is revealed
That transcends the religious. It’s Spiritual.
It depends on the willingness to be grateful
For what is not yet manifest. All can be healed
By this method of praying, if up to the task.

It’s reflected in science. In quantum physics,
The observer effect describes how one can change
Situations, objects, and personalities
Through the thought given to them. The power we seize
With a positive outlook is nothing so strange.
Religion and science are a fortunate mix.

Blessed Are Those Who’ve Not Seen, But Yet They Believe.
This is the main ingredient of any prayer.

We receive what is given from life eternal –
The most generous giver of large things and small.
What Is Asked For Is Given. Feeling must be there.
The strength of our excitement is how we receive.

Disregard the appearance of what doesn’t match
Your picture of perfection of how things should be.
Thought Transmission creates within what is observed
The appropriate changes that are most deserved
Both observed and observer are linked completely
As thoughts turn into reality with dispatch.
