Expect Only What You Want

Creation In Stillness

She was hired to be master of ceremonies
At a huge event. Thousands of people or more
Were to gather. The prime minister would be there.
Since it was such an important and grand affair,
Something occurred to her that she couldn’t ignore.
It came on with the grace of a gentle cool breeze.

She wanted to have her picture taken with him,
Although she knew not of him nor had she a clue
As to how this would happen. She stuck to her dream.
One could say she was positive to the extreme.
She was full on determined to make this come true.
Normal friends would insist that here chances were slim.

Having her picture taken with the head of state
Would go extremely well in her portfolio.
She savored the feeling of it having happened.
Is this something that normal folks can’t comprehend?
Friends who say it’s impossible can be let go.
Do not let them train you into what you create.

She arrived at the stadium some time before
The event was to happen. No others were there
Except one person to whom she told with much zeal
Of her dream. She was fixated on her ideal.
To everyone she met she would proudly declare
Her intention. Her excitement she would explore.

It turns out that this person who was there early
Was the wife of the son of someone related
To the prime minister. She said she would arrange
For a photo shoot. This story shouldn’t sound strange.
Our blind trust in how things are is overrated.
Power you have to have things the way they should be.

Never Be Angry?

Control Of The Inner Flame

Open flames give off heat. What a revelation!
It’s no wonder that when I touch one I get burned.
Logic dictates that it’s best for me to avoid
Anything that is painful or gets me annoyed.
Should my sources of agony be of concern?
When I am burning what should be the duration?

Discordant and uncomfortable people show
Up in my life because I’m hooked into that part
Of their energy. It’s a co-creative dance
That holds me in a most difficult circumstance.
Some people are like burners. It’s not very smart
To go near their direct flame. This much I do know.

If I have touched a hot stove, the question should be,
“What do I do next?” The answer comes right away.
“Take your hand off the hot stove immediately!
It’s not worth abundance, wellness, and clarity.
In this awful condition do you want to stay?”

That this is good advice I would have to agree.

The next time that I feel anger or injustice,
I might say to myself, “I’ve not yet decided
How long I will use you to not let myself be
In a state of wellbeing. You definitely
Did me wrong, and my anger can’t be derided,
But I’d rather be free to experience bliss.”

Expect And Be Shocked

Surprise At Discovery

Powerful expectation that I will survive
And discover my own life defeats urgency
In the consummate moment. What else can I do
To screw up or be helpful? The world I once knew
Ever changes to something unexpectedly.
Haven’t I learned a thing about being alive?

Well, stop bitching and moaning. The least I can do
In a world ripe with wonder is stop pretending
That I must become fearful for the next decade
Of the ones far behind me. What I wouldn’t trade
For the life of another. To nothing I cling
But a cloud of creation, quite absent of clue.

My illness, though life threatening, keeps me in touch
With the tough karmic lessons of lives eternal.
Whatever there is coming that I must go through
May I learn in the long run what best I should do.
It may be simply by my keeping this journal
That I may accidentally accomplish much.

All I can do is want for good things to occur
And expect that they’ll happen. My life and this world
Are imperfect perceptions of the most ideal.
The remorse in my heart for past actions reveal
That I am sorely human. Consciousness is swirled
In all matter of circumstance life wants to stir.
