What’s In Your Future?

The Intent Of Unceen Forces

We ask for the solution in myriad ways.
Living has caused the asking, and life will respond
To the heart of our focus immediately.
Feeling better or worse are the choices only
From this moment unto those that pierce the beyond.
How can we know what’s happening in later days?

What is in the process of becoming for you
Is all that you have wanted right up until now.
As you stand in awareness of all that you are
You must know that fulfillment is not all that far
In your future. To feel this is how you allow
All your dreams and wishes to finally come true.

But if you notice that it has not happened yet
It’s an upstream awareness that will pull you down
To the depths of despair. When you go with the flow
The events of your future are easy to know.
You do not have to resort to drifting around
In the fog of prediction with utter regret.

If you can avoid facing reality and
Think thoughts that are different from the probable
You pump that into your future nowness instead
Of the usual rubbish produced in your head.
In the long run you will be a lot more able
To know what’s in your future because it is planned.

Know Thyself

The Spiritual Mirror Image

Since childhood I’ve been learning and relearning things
That others get the first time and with greater ease.
I don’t find it a problem until I’m perceived
And am judged for the way I am. Then I am peeved.
But I’ve been a fine bastard with my psychoses
And this self-observation – my ego it stings.

It’s and ongoing process. Self-discovery
Grows from learning of this world and all of its ways.
But the self that is studied is of the body
And the thing that we know as personality
Yet the more subtle essence for most of us stays
In the depths of the psyche concealed completely.

I would study myself, but just what does that mean?
I must ask myself questions that puzzle me so.
Is myself the perceiver? Or am I that who
Perceives he who’s perceiving? If I follow through
With this interrogation, what truth could I know?
…Consciousness is recursive and clearly obscene?

The mind is a fifth limb. It will grasp and hold on
To the things it perceives. I know that it’s a tool.
It itself is perceived by that which is unnamed.
The true self is a mirror wherein all is framed
In its pureness of being. I’ll take that as cool.
It’s the source of all selfhood from which life is drawn.
