Transcendence Through Stillness

The Reflection Of Calm

How do I learn to transcend the limited me
…The conditional entity? How do I know
What is silence and stillness? What has this to do
With the person I am and what I’m going through?
What does it mean to be ‘still?’ How can someone grow
Without moving? Can this fettered self be made free?

Like most words, ‘stillness’ is but a starting off place
For describing what can’t be described easily.
Everyone has their own experience of it.
Meditation is the perfect thing to permit
It to happen. What’s called my personality
Is dissolved in the process of receiving grace.

If I haven’t found the stillness, no matter how
Well I do in life, it will turn into something
Unfulfilling, even if the world praises me.
Free from erratic motion I most want to be.
It is the cause of most of human suffering.
The stillness is available to me right now.

I like pleasant conditions and circumstances.
By the same token, bad situations cause me
Much discomfort, but if I can find the stillness
In the moment, I know that I will suffer less
Than I would if I can’t. Stillness I clearly see
As the alternative to my taking chances.

Your Dreams Will Show You The Way

Follow The Freshness Of Your Desire

I have zest for the joy of the journey I’m on.
I see now as a starting point to forever.
Many goals I will strive for. Some I will achieve.
I have launched my desires. Now I’m due to receive.
Embarking upon this delicious endeavor,
The concerns that I had about life are all gone.

I don’t need the manifestation. All I need
Is the dream and the journey. I love the contrast
That I’m offered. It helps me to clearly define
Something better from it. I’m obliged to design
As I wish and not focus so much on the past.
What is more important than my will to succeed?

My spirit doesn’t ask me if I’m observing
Constantly where I stand now in relation to
Where I want to be. It asks not how far away
My fulfillment is. It in no way can betray
Its own sense of direction. The thing I must do
Is remain focused on what my dreaming will bring.

Potential is alive and well now and always.
I am up to speed with what I’ve given birth to.
Believing in my dream, my anticipation
Is for the joy I’ll know for the work I have done.
In the meantime, my journey is my biggest clue
To my living a life that does truly amaze.

Clear Bad Karma

Spiritual Shortcut

The word Karma means action. Whose? That would be mine.
The most dynamic way to exist as beings,
Karma I live through is responsibility
That I have for my own life, and naturally,
It extends as far outward among offerings
As my strongest vibration. With this I am fine.

My life is my own making. That’s what the word means.
My successes and failures are all but my own.
Anytime I can see this in full clarity
Is a time for the crafting of my destiny.
Actions past for which my unclean soul must atone
I can safely call fated as important scenes.

Since my life is my karma no one else takes charge.
The word ‘blame’ has no meaning and is a poor game.
Those who think that their lives are caused from the outside
Have it fairy assed backwards. Were I they, I’d hide
For the lame act that they perform only brings shame
They’re likely to encounter while roaming at large.

My thoughts and my emotions, actions, and focus
Are then orientated to get me where I
Need to go in the business of daily living.
Life is lived from the inside, and in its giving,
I embrace all the drama and not wonder why
I have less time for negative things to discuss.
