Ask, Believe, Receive

The Process

Your desire is the only thing you’ll ever need
But you hardly ever let yourself entertain
A desire without shooting it down with your doubt.
Things that keep showing up are clearly all about
Your own lack of commitment. There’s nothing to gain
In hoping that your struggle will help you succeed.

You have given your inner being subtle clues.
You’re contributing always. Your relationship
With yourself you have nurtured over many years.
Your reluctance to movement results from your fears
Of failure, but this agony you can well skip.
You always have the freedom to feel as you choose.

There is only attraction. There’s no assertion.
When you try to force something it rarely works out.
When desires and beliefs match are when things occur
That will be most delightful. The life you prefer
Is available to you. You do have much clout
In commanding the universe, and it is fun.

You have unwillingly calibrated to things
And beliefs about things you do not even want
Through unconscious behaviors that you can release.
The power of your presence is eternal peace
And the life you enjoy here can be but a jaunt.
You’ll get used to a new heart that constantly sings.

Allowing Simplified

The Engine Of Manifestation

If you’re more aware of what you are perceiving
And less so of how others are perceiving you,
You can stay in the art of allowing always.
You did not really come here to spend all your days
Understanding perceptions of others. It’s true
That it adds some resistance to all your grieving.

I have consciousness flowing to me and through me.
Everyone who has ever lived has their own view.
They’re looking at this moment not as I see it
But from spirit – a vantage point that defies wit.
Allowing is made simple. All I have to do
Is to stay in the receptive mode constantly.

That part outside yourself that you’re trying to reach
You will find is inside you. If you are tuning
Yourself to the frequency of it you will find
That you are it. It’s vital that you never mind
Anything that does not support what you’re doing.
You are all of the pieces and emulate each.

Consciousness of pure intellect and of feeling
Is that which can assist me right here and right now.
Do not let conditions that I cannot control
Rob the life force within me and cripple my soul.
With some practice I can train myself to allow
Loving grace which makes life so much more appealing.

Finding Lost Feeling

The Heart Of Depression

Things are not the way I want. It’s getting me down,
And I’m not in a position where I can see
How to get what I want. What on earth should I do?
I keep repeating this until my mind turns blue,
But I need to do something or I’ll never be
In fulfillment. Yet I can’t help wearing a frown.

I have this thing all backwards according to those
Of a better vibration than I can produce
Here and now in my agony. It makes no sense
That when I feel like this nothing good will commence.
In fact all is against me if I don’t make use
Of content with my journey. My higher self knows.

The journey is the destination. I can know
That I can find fulfillment each part of the way
To the way that I’m after. I’ll do everything
In my power to entertain thoughts that will bring
Feelings of satisfaction and not of dismay.
Focusing on what’s missing is not how to go.

What I want is unfolding, and I’m satisfied.
I am in the receiving mode and ready for
The next piece of the puzzle, and then the next one.
They won’t come if I’m troubled. I can’t be undone
By the present which isn’t so tragic a bore.
What I wish with a pure heart cannot be denied.

When A Soul Contract Ends

Moving On

Soul contracts are agreements we enter into
Before birth because souls involved will be bonded
Together for some time for lessons to be learned
That are raw and specific. Our guides are concerned
That we grow through experience. We’ve responded
To spiritual process. It is nothing new.

Before this contract is created we will meet
With our guides who permit us to plan and design
Which life lessons and situations might be best
For each soul’s evolution. What we manifest
In the way of our karma may fall out of line
With intentions original. It’s not defeat.

When all lessons are learned then the contract will end.
When that happens folks respond in various ways.
Like losing an old friend some may feel great sorrow.
But some may be quite happy to let someone go
Who had been a real asshole throughout all the days
Of the contract’s duration. Have you made a friend?

The end of a soul contract ends only a part
Of your life. The next chapter will always be there.
With certain understanding we learn and engage
Our manifold relationships on the life stage.
We instruct one another to be more aware
Of the matters that matter so much to the heart.

Positive Expectation

The Winning Alignment

You want to help the world be a wonderful place.
The better your life is the more you want that for
Everyone in the whole world. So far all is true.
The point of least resistance is your only clue
To the life that you want, special blessings, and more.
Positive Expectation is your certain grace.

You can’t vibrate for someone else. You can only
Live your life and control your point of attraction.
You can influence others through the clarity
Of your shining example that others can see.
With a cleaner vibration it can all be fun.
You control what you think and let how things are be.

Thinking thoughts that you don’t want to turn into things
Is a scourge of a habit. You know that by now.
Meditation or sleep will stop the momentum
Of a thought that is negative. You overcome
By changing its direction. This way you allow
The divine puppet master to pull at your strings.

Let the control that you seek be only about
Controlling your own Positive Expectation.
Then your point of attraction you control as well.

You know that there are places where you mustn’t dwell.
The whole universe is in cooperation
With your total wellbeing. Harbor not a doubt.

Messages From Spirit

Continuous Connection

Spirit and feathered creatures work well together.
My grandmother transitioned a few days ago.
Since then I’ve been seeing cardinals everywhere.
Does this have some significance, and should I care?
They do have my attention, yet all that they know
Is that it’s a fine day. Other creatures concur.

They are not my grandmother, but what can they mean?
Is it coincidental, or am I addressed
With a message from spirit directly from her?
Could I be much the wiser in this if I were
More attentive… or something? To give it my best
Is my intent. I must keep my vibration clean.

These birds are brightly colored, and they are around
Where I live, so the mystery is lessened some
But the birds are susceptible, meaning they are
Easily influenced by those energies far
From the realm of the physical. Messages from
The nonphysical quarters are real and profound.

Birds are excellent at what they do to maintain
Connection with the spirit world. They are willing
To do what e’er it takes to get our attention.
It remains beyond all human comprehension
How the integration can be most fulfilling.
The work of these creatures is never done in vain.

Purpose

Reason And Beingness

Can I think of my life as a mission unique
If so many just like me are doing the same?
Fundamentally I know that I’m different
Than most folks in a lot of ways, and I have spent
A lifetime finding my token in this big game.
There’s a price to be paid for my being oblique.

I don’t think I could act normally if I tried.
Indeed I’ve tried a whole bunch and all of it wrong.
I believe I’m a loser, and that is tragic.
When I look in the mirror I make myself sick.
Is there some truly fucked world where I might belong?
I know that life is so only if I decide.

How much time have I left to do what I must do
To clean my nasty toilet of lifelong ill deeds?
It would take a fortune just to get out of debt.
When I leave this world I’ll do so with no regret.
I did give it my damnedest. My bitter heart bleeds
For the life that I might have lived and that I knew.

I am writing from my heart. This is a snapshot
Of the monsoon of moments that flow through my day.
It may not be worth sharing. I give not a damn.
Take it as entertainment. The fool that I am
Gives me absolute license to do things my way.
This old self and my writing is all that I’ve got.

Try Less

All Is Done

All I need to know is that it’s already done.
I’ve identified something that I want and I
Can maintain my alignment. I’ll build momentum
So that all the sooner that which I want will come.
But a wise inner voice says that I ought to try
A lot less and to trust in the process begun.

Constant trusting that the process works without fail
Is all that it requires. I have put it all there –
Everything that I want. I can’t keep focusing
On the absence. I will not accomplish a thing
But a blocking of that which is going nowhere.
They exist in my mind’s eye in vivid detail.

It is not about thinking about it a lot.
Too much of that will lead me into depression.
To accept that the process is worthy and real
There must be some passion in the way that I feel
For the thing that is wanted, and I am someone
Who can maintain a blissful state absent of thought.

I Must Chill. That’s the bottom line. Just let things be.
Everything is accomplished. I need to relax
And allow things to happen. It is not okay
If I’m feeling discomfort. I must steer away
From diversions and self-sabotaging attacks.
I let myself move toward what I want to see.

Your True Love

Fulfillment Awaits

Soon your true love will be knocking at your front door.
If you care to believe that then go right ahead.
Miracles can occur if you know this is true
But if you’re feeling tension one thing you can do
To address the phenomenon which is widespread
Is to focus your feeling a little bit more.

Think only of your appreciation for all
That the person means to you. Pay no attention
To what you think the other is feeling for you.
Do not try to prepare yourself. You won’t be true
To who you are, then psychosis may have begun.
False starts are not advised, but that is your own call.

Prepare yourself for the person who loves seeing,
And wanting, and loving. It’s all about the flow
Outward from you as elegant love energy.
You have no concern for what comes back. That will be
Taken care of by Law of Attraction. Do know
That the person you want is the one you’re being.

If someone that you wanted to love you did not
Yours is not the imbalance. It clearly is theirs.
Think about what you want and especially why.
Keep your focus on loving, and do not be shy
With the person you know deep inside really cares
About you. This acknowledgement matters a lot.

A Nice Way To Feel

Extreme Contentment

I feel that I’ve accomplished something this morning.
I’ve always been trying things and watching outcomes
And I have been getting better in my results.
It would seem I’m a lot saner than most adults.
Happiness is my life. I beat only those drums
That enthrall and excite me more than anything.

When I woke this morning, I felt that I was me.
I don’t think I’ve felt quite this way ever before.
As it lasted for hours, I was wide awake
And not thinking about anything. What I make
Of this realization is that I am more
Than I am. I’m not separate from all that be.

I’m so grateful that I can express how I feel.
Now that I know that feeling, I know perfect peace.
I am just so comfortable with everything
And the realization continues to bring
Moments of deep contentment along with release
Of those patterns of thinking that are not ideal.

I’m still working it out, but I’ve finally found
What I’m looking for and my connection as well.
I’ve consulted the world, and it is fine with me.
I’ve a new sense of pride because I’m completely
In a world of near ecstasy, if you can’t tell.
My guiding star emotion is pure when unbound.

Love Is Wise

Heart And Mind As A Team

What would we want future generations to know…
Who will be on this planet some eons from now?
Today is a time capsule. We are dead sea scrolls.
In a thousand years’ time folks will take on their roles
As astute analyzers who will not allow
Us to be unexamined. That’s the way things go.

Things I would like to tell them remain manifold
And of two categories: moral and mental.
There will be plenty of intellectuals then.
They should only consider what are the facts when
Studying any matter. Do not take the fall
For diversion to preferences you may hold.

Very simple is the moral thing I would say:
Love is Wise. Hatred is foolish. That’s about it.
Evil is tolerated on this troubled earth.
What we learn in this schoolhouse is of immense worth
In terms of the healthy rearing of the spirit.
All must learn that there are certain laws to obey.

We are getting more interconnected which means
We are much more familiar and prone to contempt
Yet we must learn to tolerate one another.
People will behave in ways we would not prefer.
It is vital that we keep our vibrations kempt
And allow loving wisdom to enter our genes.

A Small Tuning

Toward The Clearest Vibration

There are some reasons to ignore reality.
One can just find that feeling place and wallow there
In the bliss of contentment and that is okay
If you do find some peace in living life this way.
It’s in no way dynamic yet you are aware
Of the fullness of yourself and how you should be.

In your ignorance it’s easier then to feel
Your way into that state where nothing can go wrong.
Tuning into your wholeness, focused attention
You give to all of life. There’s no need to mention
The ignorable horror which is a sad song.
Are you called Pollyanna for not being real?

Undivided attention to life you shall give
After some hibernation – enough to get you
Feeling passion for something that you already
Love to do when you’re being the best you can be.
It is not complicated, this thing you must do
In order to live the way that you want to live.

When someone asks, “How are you,” do speak what is true:
“I have never been better. Angels have blessed me
With a world of abundance. I’m in paradise…”

You might blow them away, but they must pay the price
For their asking. You can be assured they won’t be
Calling you Pollyanna or messing with you.

The Missing Piece

The Grossly Obvious Absence

Lately I’ve been feeling that something wants to change.
It was driving me crazy that I didn’t know
What on earth that would look like and what I must do
To help shape things the way I want. I have no clue
As to how it will unfold. I’m confident though
That my dream will become real. Now does this sound strange?

As I stand in my wholeness in full resonance
With who I am and revel in what’s taking place
In my day to day living, I can recognize
Changes making their way to me. Thus it is wise
To remain optimistic. The challenge I face
Is that it ain’t that easy although it makes sense.

Deliberate Creation sounds so wonderful,
But like most heavy duty tools one must take care
In its safe operation. It takes self-control
To ignore the way things are, but my weary soul
Must find something that works. I would consider prayer
Does it have to be painful to sort through the bull?

I become a cooperative component
When I lose the resistance of my awareness
Of the way I don’t want things. It’s rather tricky
To focus on specifics, but being happy
Guarantees my connection and total access
To the ever available grace of content.

Every Moment Is A New Starting Point

Look Ahead

Basic laws of physics we can well understand.
We need not attend classes about gravity.
“If you don’t get this training you might well fall up!”
It is insulting to be treated like a pup.
Many children are missing though. So could it be
That for some of us this understanding is banned?

The laws are consistent as they work just the same
For all creatures existing. We learn how to use
Them to our full advantage. Laws of Attraction
Are the engine we use to get everything done.
They make no exception nor mistake. We may choose
To ignore their existence and wallow in blame.

We can’t speak about Laws of Attraction without
Reference to momentum, its elegant child.
When you focus on one thought about anything
Within moments you open up to a wellspring
Of thoughts like it. It’s as if the mind has gone wild.
Often times you have felt this. I have not a doubt.

A reprieve from momentum you get as you sleep.
The engine of beliefs and wants must have a rest.
When you wake don’t refill your mind with yesterday.
Think of things that excite you. With practice you’ll stay
In a good natured state – not angry or depressed.
You will be astounded by the blessings you’ll reap.

It’s About To Happen

Don't Give Up Hope

Your awareness of where you are can hold you back.
Strongly believable is your reality
Because it’s translated by physical senses.
You see things then believe them. The consequences
Are your strong dispositions. Yet if you could be
A being of perfection you’d still get some flack.

You are here to create your own reality –
Not to face someone else’s. Some folks recreate
What they’re facing already, again and again.
Powerful belief systems are reinforced, then
There are conflicting mindsets to coordinate
Along with others telling you how you should be.

Stop looking so much at what is, first and foremost.
How far you are away from the unfulfilled dream
Has not to do with distance nor time it may take.
It’s about vibration. Consciously while awake
You decide to get happy then on comes a stream
Of sustaining fulfillment of which you may boast.

When you sleep, all momentum stops. When you awake,
Your vibration is neutral. This time is the best
To find reasons to feel good – the more the better.
Then your day will unfold the way you would prefer.
Don’t worry or think things that will make you depressed.
Your doubting and complaining would be a mistake.

Link With Previous Lives

Connection To Eternity

Soul agreements are made outside of time and space.
Often they are forgotten in this dimension.
Distracted by this day to day reality,
Living can be a challenge. While blind we can’t see
What it is we had written. Whatever is done
Without guidance may result in harm and disgrace.

Connections from the present we make to the past.
We believe they’re essential for drawing upon
Information from past lives to help with the theme
That was chosen for this one. Within the daydream
Are subconscious reflections, and from them are drawn
Insights from the vast pool that the soul has amassed.

Linear is our thinking. We can’t go beyond
Our imperfect perceptions of experience.
Time and space are illusory. All that occurs
Does so all at once. We are at best amateurs
When it comes to experience. Don’t take offense.
It is futile to look at the truth and despond.

Simultaneous is the nature of being.
Connections that we make and break are dynamic,
Ever changing, and subtle. The changes we make
To past lives and this present one are for the sake
Of them all that they all may become fantastic.
Knowledge of how it all works is truly freeing.

Life Mastery

At One With The Flow

When you’re into the flow of things life is a breeze.
You feel full, well connected, and part of the whole
Of all that is created. Ascended masters
Guide you through your existence. Whatever occurs
You remain unaffected. You have trained your soul
To be calm, contented, and quite easy to please.

Your akashic record you may care to peruse.
You are interested in your tapping into
The power of your higher self. There is a way,
But you need not believe in a word that I say
Until you’ve tried some things out. The human in you
Demands proof, or else its truth you’ll flat out refuse.

The body is a complex energy system.
It is composed of chakras. The one that’s outside
Is the Soul Star Chakra. It is above the head.
Through this chakra, divine love you are being fed.
Everyone has this access. It can’t be denied
Nor can it be a thing that someone could condemn.

As you’re grounded and prepared for deeper insights
To come to you, the activation has begun.
In a nice quiet place focus on your breathing.
Imagine white or golden light that is bringing
Loving grace and a peace that’s as warm as the sun
To your Solar Star Chakra through your days and nights.

Invincible

Personal Strength

Believing is the momentum of practiced thought.
I would love to feel fresher in things that I think.
Is it better that fewer beliefs enter in
This now moment’s equation? And is it a sin
That I’m so overwhelmed that I’m close to the brink
Of eternal confusion where I’m all I’ve got?

It feels that I should do something – what I don’t know.
Cleaning up my vibration may be what is best.
How I do that is through my appreciation.
As I become addicted new life has begun.
No longer do I feel so alone and depressed.
Of the thoughts of my evil past I must let go.

The fresh feeling of satisfaction I pursue
In each God given moment for all that I am.
I’m aware that I created it consciously –
A state of deep contentment so that I may be
Receptive to life’s blessings and not to the sham.
There is so little real work that I’m left to do.

If I’ve practiced feeling satisfied I will be
More likely to be at peace when things are adverse.
Feeling for the sake of feeling gives me freedom
From the weight of conditions. I can overcome
Feeling that I’m the victim of some evil curse.
I may then declare my invincibility.

Anxiety And Depression

Personal Hell

The Dead End I have reached. There is nowhere to go
That is not without torment. “Struggle is okay,”
Would say friends if I had them. “We all can relate
To the bitter taste life has. When in a lost state
Know that you’re not alone although it seems that way.”

Could there be a ‘friend’ inside me who I don’t know?

What I feel is reality, and it is now.
Contemplating ending it all, I find relief
In the knowing that doing so may curse my soul.
What if it is already too much less than whole?
My own negative thinking I know is the thief
Of my spirit. I’d feel better if I knew how…

So we all go through hard times, and I would do best
To be patient with myself. I deserve a break.
Some rest and relaxation and good exercise
When I’m feeling much better is proper and wise.
I must move this damned body while I am awake
Whatever that may look like and rightly expressed.

I must force myself off the couch and on a walk.
I can create something from the pain that I feel.
Things that make me wonderful, blessed, and unique
And the things I appreciate counter the bleak.
I become all the better throughout the ordeal.
Therapy for the psyche is positive shock.

How Does Doubt Become Trust?

A Spiritual Transformation

Any person who meditates knows how it feels
To be at peace and thoughtless if but for a while.
Signs of things as you want them you may disbelieve
Out of habit. The images that you receive
Are the prelude to something complete and tactile.
One must be open to what life clearly reveals.

But you are meditating – quieting the mind.
In this way you suspend disbelief at your will.
One cannot remain thoughtless indefinitely.
Doubt returns as you experience ecstasy
In your dreams of fulfillment. The ultimate thrill
Is to know satisfaction in all that you find.

Do not go for certainty in any event.
It will goose up the distrust. Our reality
Will confirm that we shouldn’t believe it because
It has not happened yet. This logic has some flaws.
You may be thinking so much that you cannot see
Some way clear of the self-talk that causes torment.

You can feel satisfied in the thought of some thing
Not in having the power to make it happen.
Feel the satisfaction and in time it will turn
To the trust for which you most desperately yearn.
Practice feeling delighted again and again,
And find ever more things that will make your heart sing.

The Last Holdout

The Resistance Of Thinking

What is the difference between wishful thinking
And true knowing? What if it’s appreciation
For the life that I’m living for every reason
That is positive? Now is the perfect season
To find bliss in pure nothingness and the warm sun.
There’s no reason to think that my world is shrinking.

The bounce I do appreciate from a bad place
To a better one, or I could choose not to see
That there is some relief and continue to whine
When I know deep down inside that everything’s fine.
I’ve played that game for so long. I’d rather be free
To be in the mode of receiving divine grace.

Unseen forces that make worlds also orchestrate
The movement of all matter, and every event
Is already assembled. I just have to be
A cooperative component willingly.
If I do so, I’ll save myself useless torment.
All I have to do more of is appreciate.

I know what feeling good is and how to get there.
Staying there is an issue I still must work on.
But I can’t figure life out. That’s already done.
So instead of thinking I should be having fun.
To the geekiness in this verse do give a yawn.
Being not The Last Holdout, my heart I must share.

Life As One Cosmos

Profound Consideration

An old woman of one hundred four years of age
With hair down to her knees dances wildly about
Sometimes singing and laughing but with tears flowing.
An ecstatic life she lives. She loves everything
As it is without judgement or lingering doubt.
With all things she’s ready and willing to engage.

To know life beyond physical limitations,
Psychological structures, and what is perceived
Is to know life as it is happening right now.
All is one living cosmos. How can one know how
To feel anything different than what’s believed?
Is there hope for we young inexperienced ones?

She shows intense emotion just feeding the ants.
Because she is empathic she knows how it feels
For all creatures to feel love come on randomly.
I will kill ants on sight. They mean nothing to me
But an absolute menace. My hatred reveals
That I’m not quite there yet. What an odd circumstance!

I would not get a scolding for being this way
Nor would she try to stop my incongruous act.
With her laughter and tears flowing I’ll understand
 Why her love and compassion are awfully grand.
What we do here may have an unrighteous impact.
Am I willing to carry along come what may?

Getting Answers

Allowing the Guidance

I would like to be able to communicate
Directly with my maker as some of us can.
I know that it is possible for anyone.
I need answers to my questions. I receive none.
Perhaps it is because I am feeling less than
One deserving of answers. It’s worth some debate.

Some people speak with their God as if they’re old friends.
Others do in the same way and call it good luck
Or timing, the right resources, or just magic
To connect them with God. Is there some special trick
To the asking for guidance? Indeed, I’m dumbstruck
By the complex simplicity that life intends.

It is said that it’s subtle in the beginning.
Connecting with your God source means your alignment
With the answer forthcoming and not the question.
It is through meditation that this can be done.
When you quiet the mind you relieve the torment
Of your bad habit of overanalyzing.

Let the questions rest within you but for a day.
Ponder them in great detail to get clarity.
Then the next day get quiet and just meditate
But not on the questions. Confusion you’d create.
When you’ve finished listen for what flows easily.
You become more insightful in living this way.

To Retraining The Returning Routine

The Majestic Now

Back to work – the big storm dream is thus come and gone.
Delusions of nostalgia for life in the womb
Dissipate in the daylight along with the quest
To release what has always been tough to digest.
There’s a big call to duty, and life must resume.
From wherever, all life coping forces are drawn.

And the work is not obvious right off the bat.
There seems to be confusion as to how work feels.
If it drains the life out of you and causes harm
To your delicate body, this should cause alarm.
True work is of a nature which often reveals
Special passion and talent. What’s cooler than that?

The most primary work to be done is to feel
At your loving best most of the time you are here.
It takes practice and patience to get to that place
Where you can be delighted at will by the grace
Given by divine forces. Your fortune is near
In the things that, for you, are eternally real.

Your routine is as changeable as you want it.
To be drenched in such freedom is to be allowed
All the choices available for you to make.
Improve yourself not for anyone else’s sake.
For the work that you do feel genuinely proud.
You can play out your life just the way you see fit.

Awaiting The Comforting Storm

Anticipation Of Emphatic Flow

Would I know it was Sunday without a device
Of some kind to inform me of reality?
At some point it should matter not that time exists
Or does not, as is in the minds of the sophists.
The air, pregnant with magical moisture, to me,
Is awfully enchanting which is really nice.

Go ahead, then! Be with child, blessed atmosphere!
You and I both deserve it. Our hearts become one
Beating entity. Growing anticipation
Of the torrents oncoming define what is fun.
To behold in protection the cleansing begun,
In a state of comfort I am as it draws near.

Water falling to the earth is such a big deal.
I can’t get enough of it. If in a dry place
Then my mood will be stricken with consciousness drought.
Something about the wetness I can’t live without.
Super liquid dark matter, consume and embrace
All that needs readjustment and more time to heal.

At once, I am my higher self and the one here
With a flesh and blood vessel and a unique take
On all that I experience. I love the rain.
It’s movement almost guarantees release of pain.
I believe that my being deserves such a break
From the desiccant nature of my worldly fear.

The Movement

Life Induced Constipation

At the five-o-clock point of the colon is where
I am stuck like an overgrown presence of pain
That can’t be gotten rid of. I simply must wait.
In the meantime I’m losing the will to create.
It would seem that this body is on a campaign
To teach me a damned lesson… perhaps not to swear.

World War Three in slow motion is instant world news.
It mirrors well the conflict that rages in me.
Must there be some connection wherein I may find
A solution to offer relief of some kind?
Doctors say that I’m normal. It’s hard to agree,
But if I don’t, it will be a battle I’ll lose.

The Movement is ongoing and awfully slow
Like the news. My world issues are known by no one
But my own consciousness in a state of duress.
By my writing about this I may gain success
In at least finding humor and ultimate fun
With this living dilemma wherein I must grow.

I can treat my trick muscle with comic relief
Of a kind that is corny yet tickles the mind
Into instant exposure to some healing grace.
It remains ever important that I embrace
Every wonderful thought and feeling I can find
And pray that the presence of my pain will be brief.

You Do Not Need A Job

Employment, Freedom, And The Web Of Self-Worth

Do you like working for the money that you get?
Indeed, do you like money and how well it flows
Into your life experience? Is the feeling
One of bliss in knowing you’re fully deserving?
Can you just allow all that its blessing bestows?
Or must you justify it due to your mindset?

Is the justifying that you’re doing your way
Of allowing? Can you feel that there’s enough room
To play with? You can shift your perspective so that
You can be more allowing. You’ll get that down pat.
Then less justification you’ll need to assume.
Feeling good about money enlivens your day.

There are those who work hard and don’t have a whole lot.
There are others who work little and are wealthy.
The latter are the ones who have figured it out.
It is not about action. They know beyond doubt.
It’s about your vibration and being healthy.
If you want change to happen, do give it a shot.

The real work that you do is about energy…
About habits and attitudes and feeling good.
It’s telling the new story the way it should be…
Just as you want it to play out and exactly
As is by divine forces it is understood.
Thoughts of recession cannot be reality.

Sixty Eight Seconds

One Cycle Of Creation

In four times that it takes for a thought to become
Registered in the psyche, magic can take place
In the way of pure freedom of seeing just how
My own thoughts that are negative must disallow
The least bit of attention. I know that my grace
Is in going more general. I’ll beat that drum.

If I start off by thinking of just having fun…
People laughing and moving about gleefully…
Then more thoughts like that follow. But if I get stuck
In a negative thought stream, am I out of luck?
Noticing when I am there may train me to be
Mindful of how, in general, life is to run.

If my thought takes a downturn, and I act quickly,
I can simply stop thinking it before it grows
Into much of a monster. I can start again
Going general until I reach the point when
I can do it unconsciously. Who would oppose
Having heart healing focus? That wouldn’t be me.

The specifics fill into my general view
Of this life that I’m given as I play along
Not opposing the present. The way things may be
May not be the reason for my not being free
To live life any better than utterly wrong.
In a handful of seconds, all can become new.

Peristalsis

Involuntary Movement Of Matter

The digestion of life comes with issues for some.
Their existence intolerance debilitates.
Feeling stuck in the plumbing each waking moment
Moves them to take such actions that they may lament.
Fortunate is the person who eliminates
With no problems like obstructions to overcome.

Who can speak of resistance to natural flow?
All who breathe and draw sustenance know how it feels
For the muscular rhythm to pass stuff along.
If it’s not working properly, something is wrong
With the mind – not the body. The spirit that heals
Is at work at each moment. It’s good that all know.

Chicken soup and disaster do not separate.
At the pit of the body the two become one.
This becomes problematic. How can I not feed
On the things that I don’t want? How can I be freed
From the stuff that is in there that feels like a ton?
I’m so backed up on living that I can’t see straight.

Proper diet is indicated – but what of?
By denying it and putting on a fake show
Or by beating myself up for not feeling well
I create malnutrition and cannot compel
The least bit of a presence. The good that I know
Is that I’m being guided by infinite love.

Sunday With Spirit

Peaceful Transformation

Nothing is wrong in Kansas as far as I see,
And I must see it that way if I’m to survive.
Transformation of vision comes with some practice.
Things that I believe wrongly I’m free to dismiss.
All that I know I’m ready to sort and archive.
Everything I belong to becomes part of me.

There are people who care about me that I know.
It is not out of pretense that they express it.
Had I not thought that these people had it in them?
The light of my life force shines but ever so dim…
Much too often and too much for me to admit.
Is it time for what I hold to kindly let go?

Awakened to the true love that does surround me,
Do I feel not deserving still due to my shame?
And can I show my sorrow, although it is true,
To myself and the universe? What can I do
To receive people’s love? Does this life that I claim
Have a sense of direction spiritually?

If my life had no guidance then would it be so
That I have many choices to throw me off track?
If I offer the question, my path I must know
At a much deeper level. It’s time I let go
Of constant self-undoing and never look back
At the life gone asunder played out long ago.

One Of Us

The Penalty Of Belonging

“What’s Your Social?”, it’s asked, and there is a response.
Everyone knows the drill and will play by the rules.
‘Your Social’ is unique enough to cast a spell
On the physical consciousness. It does this well
It’s expected that all behave like molecules
That are totally driven by their needs and wants.

It’s a personal question, so one must take care
Not to disclose the puzzle piece of the heartbeat
To unauthorized persons. No one wonders why
Nor is there any problem. By law all comply.
Can one mess with a system that cannot be beat?
Anyone thinking they can had better beware.

One Of Us or of any is meant to be one
Of all ones to be thought of… meaning everything
From the one who is singular to all there are.
One need not know their oneness by looking too far
Into rational thought and literal meaning.
The conceptual mantra can get a lot done.

It’s no mark of acceptance – just of inclusion
Within orders created by one’s circumstance.
To be known as One Of Us feels like I belong
To something that has meaning. All that I’ve done wrong
Tells me strongly that I will get no second chance
To behave in a better way with everyone.

Business As Usual

The Flow Of Chaos And Effect

Simple, self-solving puzzles make up the machine
That makes up all existence. I’m given this day
To be guided the right way in all that I do.
If I can get excited in my getting through
The next segment of consciousness, there I would stay.
As an evolving engine, I am a bit green.

Life is all up in this mess I seem to perceive
With my physical senses. The bits and pieces,
As they fall into place automatically,
Move my mind to solutions that I now can’t see.
If I look at things this way, my mood increases.
There is infinite power in what I believe.

People suffer and prosper upon this same pile.
Most eyes are meant to see it much more than are not…
How the plague of injustice stands ever erect
Against basic humanity, yet we connect
To bring love and support. Someone’s sinister plot
Is an ultimate failure that can’t last a while.

That this day is a blessing is already done.
It is I who must live that and make it for real.
Not a social injustice is suffered in vain.
In surviving and knowing, I lessen the pain
Of the stricken by feeling what they often feel.
Then I can look forward to a new self begun.

Hope?

The Fuel Of Continuance

Almost all of my life I’ve been mentally ill.
This profound revelation comes at a late stage.
I have made poor decisions that caused harm and grief.
In a fit of psychosis beyond my belief,
I have severed my roots. I am left to engage
In extreme self-analysis. It is no thrill.

I’m face down in my own crap, and my, what a mess.
It would take me a lifetime to straighten things out.
But I’ve already screwed up this life as it be.
Can I find a solution somewhere inside me?
Quickly I was approaching the terminal doubt…
That I should not have been born. I feel less than less.

What I wanted my whole life I already had…
Loving parents, a fine home, and family life.
I flushed that down the toilet. Now, having done so,
I am haunted by thoughts of where my soul might go,
But at least I’d not be here to cause people strife.
I recall only times when I’ve made people sad.

My big plan is to clean up the big mess I’ve made.
With the help of my God I can get this thing done.
I shall pay off my huge debts and own property
Through the special talents God bestowed upon me.
All that I ever wanted was to be someone
Who is loving, and I am still on that crusade.

The Machine

Interdependent Fragility

Critical is the nature of all that is real.
Life maintained is a symphony of submission
To process… it’s profundity, having known hell.
Painfully, my own story is pleasant to tell.
The revealed Magic Realist and I are one.
Intertwined human troubles I rightly must feel.

Easily I am grateful now that the world view
I allow to possess me with its circuitry.
Already with my deep guilt that I cannot hide,
Ignorance of reality, never implied,
Yet the interdependence is made part of me.
I digest the late wake up call. Can it get through?

Never mind a life crisis to forecast the end
Of a thing become tangled in self-awareness.
Knowing now its fragility, I taste respect.
The finite probability has the effect
Of defining the issues I need to address.
This complex human puzzle I must comprehend.

Surrender this old body to forces divine.
The coming machine cycle is due to occur.
The grand clock of existence is mine to express
Through the real me evolving. I can’t go for less
Than the grace necessary to be as it were
In eternal alignment with all that is mine.

How To Pray

Asking Intently

I have prayed for so many years for certain things
But it seems that the more that I do, the harder
I feel about receiving the things I pray for.
I always wonder if I could do something more
For my wanted manifestations to occur.
I lose faith in my meaningless prayer offerings.

This puzzle of thinking is familiar to some.
I’ll include myself in this. I often forget
That there are two different ways that one can pray…
Out of neediness or thankfulness. And which way
Proves to be more effective? It’s an easy bet.
Just because you feel needy, you are never scum.

All prayers are not answered in the order received.
They’re addressed instantaneously in the mind
Of the Master Creator. Appreciation
Is the best kind of prayer for indeed everyone.
If you ask in a whiny voice you will not find
That your prayers have been heard and all has been achieved.

Pray from inside your happiness. Be thankful for
All there is in your life that is most wonderful.
Don’t pray from scarcity or from feeling that you
Are not more than deserving. You’ve nothing to do
But believe your magnificence and be grateful
For what you have already. Then you’ll receive more.

Let Them Go

Relase Those Who No Longer Work

A tree has many branches and many more leaves.
It provides shade and comfort and filters the air
Of contaminants put there by some odd species.
Some leaves break for the wind. Others die of disease.
One cannot get mad at them. That wouldn’t be fair
To nature as a process the whole world perceives.

High and dry leaves leave branches. The stiff winter cold
Takes its toll on the tree’s staying fully awake
For the season oncoming. It must fall asleep.
To consider its losses would be rather cheap
Because it knows that it has not made a mistake.
By forces infinite it knows that it’s controlled.

If someone wants to leave you, you must let them go
Though it will not be easy. If you know you’ve done
Everything you could dream of to make things alright.
You must know that you’ve done so and then take delight
In the new opportunity that has begun.
As the leaf who remains intact you then can grow.

People change with the seasons, always wanting more
Than they had to begin with – or so they perceived.
Can you love yourself enough to just let them go?
Only in solitude are you able to know
Yourself inside and out, and once this is achieved,
You’ll attract someone who you will truly adore.

Mirror Mirror

Inner Reflections of the Past

What if things in the mirror occurred that do not
In reality? That would be interesting.
It would be like another world parallel to
This one that we are living. Which one would be true?
Ideas such as this do not a headache bring
If one has been accustomed to thinking a lot.

What if we could cross over into that domain
That can only be known by mirror reflection
And take care of some business while we’re over there
That we wouldn’t have to bother much with elsewhere?
Would it be an efficient way to get things done?
Or would all of our work there be done quite in vain?

Each of us is a reflective surface to all
People that we encounter as we interact.
We can reach into others and change how they feel
About images of us. We also conceal
Our true vision of things. Not making eye contact
Makes the reflective surface an effective wall.

Synchronicity is a sense of awareness
Of glimpses into other realms, Perfect timing
Is the organizing principle of belief
In a wonderful real world. There can be relief
Through each blessing acknowledged. Release the wellspring
Of abundant wellbeing. Go for nothing less.

Modern Radiations

Electromagnetic Dangers

Seven point eight three hertz is the earth’s frequency
Or somewhere around there. It does fluctuate some
Depending on a number of variables
Over certain longitudinal time tables.
All of the natural rhythms of life come from
The cycle fundamental to being healthy.

It’s called the Schumann Resonance, just to be fair.
It was Nikola Tesla who figured out how
Harmonics of this frequency can be applied
To our vast electronics, but then the dude died.
We could benefit from his wisdom here and now
If the powers controlling this green earth would care.

Radiations from our electronics affect
Living things on this planet in numerous ways.
They’ve been known to cause illnesses like depression,
Heart disease, and cancer, all while we’re having fun
With our nifty devices. Yet nobody pays
Much attention. Is this what we’ve come to expect?

It’s been proven by science that tuning into
The earth’s magnetic frequency reduces stress.
It improves brain function and rejuvenation
Of the cells of the body of the injured one…
And all life. There’s no illness that we need address
But our own limitations, including our view.

Just A Few Laughs Away

The Levity Solution

All because of the context in which I’m focused,
Understanding who I am I take on with glee.
I like nitty gritty experiences where
I acknowledge that things could be better, and there
Is a trust that I feel that no harm comes to me.
If I can find some laughter in life, it is just.

I make too much of all of this. Life should be fun.
If I lighten up more I’ll find humor in things.
I’m too hard on myself in my relationship
With where I want to be. Misery I can skip
If I make peace with where I am. Many blessings
Are available to me, the determined one.

I’ll play down all the negative things about me
And play up everything positive I can find
In a life punctuated with so much disgust.
How I wish I were able to turn it to dust
But I can’t so I’m forced to just leave it behind.
In my next life I shall behave differently.

I must know that the universe will yield to me
All that I’ve created both now and forever.
Were I given a glimpse of the aerial view
Of my life’s full potential, I wouldn’t be blue.
I would be laughing insanely at whatever.
I’m already crazy. The rest comes easily.

Get Used To The Blessings

Gifts Of The Peaceful Spirit

The best thing about contrast is that it helps me
To see black and white clearly when I have the need
To see through the eyes of those who see their own fear
In the eyes of their enemies as I appear
To be one of the two things. In truth, I am freed
From my own misperceptions if I dare to be.

And indeed It’s a blessing to take it all in.
Sorting through what life offers is why I exist.
Mediocre my life has been compared to those
Of my race whose ambition and excellence shows
That I should not have been born. The thought is dismissed
At the height of each moment of living in sin.

I thank God for the moments – each and every one,
For that space within each one is where I release
What is not of use to me and begin anew.
I’ll rely on God’s guidance in all that I do.
Can I not truly say I believe in world peace?
Peace within my own person is the solution.

I’ll get used to things working out. Often they do.
Wholesome ideas flowing and perfect timing
Are what is natural. It is not the reverse.
Thinking otherwise things can only get much worse.
Surely nothing can interfere with my rhyming.
Doing what I enjoy keeps me from feeling blue.

Leaving A Fear Based Reality

Releasing The Fear

The Collective Unconscious all people create.
It contains memories of which we’re not aware…
Also archetypes. It is a vast database
That has the history of the whole human race.
We all have access to it, and through it we share
Basic understandings that are without debate.

Archetypes are symbols we know instinctively.
‘The Mother’ is a perfect example of one.
Everyone, no matter how different they are,
Will respond in the same way (which isn’t bizarre)
To a mothering figure. There’s a connection
Among oneself and others most naturally.

Always cultures of domination are fear based.
Those who dominate believe they have no power
To create their reality. So they become
The despicable tyrants whose actions come from
A deep need to be noticed. The will to devour
Is of self-centered righteousness and is misplaced.

To deny that you’re in denial reinforces
Negative belief systems. Then you will project
Onto others what in yourself you truly hate.
Understand that we are not the victims of fate.
Knowledge of what is dealt with may serve to protect
One from the depletion of psychic resources.

Get Out Of Trouble

Escaping The Rubbish

Ominous is the feeling that cripples my soul.
What may happen is dreadful. I can’t think about
Devastation, poverty, and deep emptiness.
If I’m so out of balance and crippled with stress
Over what I’ve created, there is little doubt
That I can get a grip and take back some control.

How can I shift my frequency, when in despair,
To one higher, if that is even possible?
Luckily it can be done without going mad
Through a process and promise that is ironclad.
I can save my own life if I am docible
Of the logic of wellbeing which isn’t rare.

Everything is a lesson. Each experience
Is for me a perfect opportunity to
Let myself be the best student that I can be.
I would gain some awareness of dark parts of me.
Giving up is the worst thing on earth I could do.
Nonexistence is futile and doesn’t make sense.

To say that it’s too difficult reinforces
My belief that it’s difficult. I can divest
Myself of negative thoughts about what is taught.
If I see myself in others, I won’t be caught
In the trap of hopelessness. This life is the test.
Its curriculum consists of many courses.

My Question

Passion To Know

Some things I can’t believe. They don’t make any sense –
Like the human condition and why I exist.
Other things have some meaning when I’m feeling fine.
Enigmatic this world seems. Is it by design
That to question everything I cannot resist?
Should I not get some justice for my small expense?

Questions are left unanswered in this time and place.
Things that happen are left to the throw of the dice.
I cannot get excited about what goes on.
Certain signs of stability and truth are gone.
Why do people make the ultimate sacrifice?
I’m ashamed to be part of this sick human race.

It’s useless for me to keep my head in the sand.
Through the earth information seeps into my mind
Of the death and destruction. The utter despair
Is too much for me to say that I do not care
Because I’m not affected. Little I can find
To divert my attention. I don’t understand.

All I do know is that things are just as they are.
I’ll expend very little psychic energy
On the judgement of anything. Then I may find
That the answer is perfect for my simple mind.
It may be worth my best while to just let things be.
The next poem I write may be just as bizarre.

Judgement And Self-Hatred

Negative Fixation

We can always recognize what we don’t prefer
But the concept of recognizing doesn’t mean
That we need to invalidate or take up arms
Against what is not wanted. This behavior harms
One’s sublime peace of spirit and mental hygiene.
We can choose in our lives what we want to occur.

From a neutral, observational position,
We can recognize what is not wanted without
Placing negative judgement. Each choice is valid
In its own right, though it’s hard to see this amid
Atmospheric conditions of terror and doubt.
 Judging is not the way to get anything done.

Everything is neutral, but we charge everything
With emotional judgement. Thus we magnetize
Ourselves to situations that may be adverse
To the way that we want things. Indeed it’s a curse
To hold on to resentments, and it is unwise
To not be neutral. Clarity is appealing.

What reason can I have, then, to judge anyone?
From a place of neutrality I have power
Over how things affect me. My freedom of choice
Means that I can always find reason to rejoice.
What I find in myself that is wicked and sour
I will seek out in others as some solution.

If it’s right in our face or some lightyears away
It cannot really matter. We’re not affected
By something someone offers that is negative.
The higher vibration is to learn to forgive
Ignorance for the soul that is truly misled.
But how many can do that in this world today?

Only When You’re Excited

When Momentum Has Built Up

I create when I’m happy. It’s a piece of cake
I can eat and have also. There is always more
Where it came from. It feels like I’m dancing on air.
I can do almost anything, and I’m aware
Of the good that keeps coming. I’ve opened the door
To a world of excitement. I’m now wide awake.

Excuses I hold onto are anchors of fear
Of my moving ahead with what I want to do.
I’m bogged down in the details of life as it seems
And there’s not enough time to attend to my dreams.
I can manage my focus to better get through
Difficult situations. I can remain clear.

“Make no effort unless you are feeling your best.”
It’s a motto I live by. If I feel despair
Or discomfort of any kind, I must chill out.
Any action taken will be laden with doubt.
If I’m stuck in that circumstance I must take care
That I don’t bite off way more than I can digest.

Only when I’m excited can I be of use
To myself and to others. I’m able to see
The whole world as does heaven – a near perfect place
That has not been receptive to infinite grace
In the past, which is now. I am able to be
In a state where my greatest work I can produce.

Forget Bad Memories

Releasing the Negative Past

It was gross and traumatic – all that I went through.
Memories still catch up with me no matter where
I decide is a good place to block them away.
Deep inside me where they don’t belong they will stay.
Am I worthy enough to relive my despair?
Is there some way that I can live my life anew?

In the present, the past is created by me.
To better wrap my head around this, I accept
That everything is here and now. What I can’t do
Is invalidate what I don’t like. It is true
That I must come from a neutral place. What is kept
That is of no use can be released completely.

If I’m putting too much emphasis on the pain,
I must know that I do have the power to choose
To unlock from the feelings that I don’t prefer.
Putting my focus elsewhere, relief will occur.
Otherwise I will be open to self-abuse.
Logic dictates the choice if I’ve not gone insane.

It really doesn’t matter what happens – only
What I do with what happens that determines how
I will deal with the future. Toxic memories
Linger as long as needed until my heart sees
Past my old belief systems. If I can allow
Some relief in this moment, much better I’ll be.

The Marginal Propensity To Transist

Healthy Circuit Functioning

A small silicon sandwich with three copper leads,
The transistor has changed the way most things are done.
The controlling of current flow is of concern
To the novice of nature excited to learn
How electrons can benefit us as they run
Through the circuits we live with that fulfill our needs.

The first one was three clumps of rock fused together
And attached with electrodes. How much it’s evolved
Over just a few decades! Transistors replaced
The old vacuum tube triodes which were glass encased.
The problem of high power and heat were resolved
By this silicon substance that all would prefer.

They can be used as switches or amplifiers.
A large current is controlled with a small voltage
At the base, so it functions just like a faucet.
We delight in our propensity to cosset
Electronic behavior upon the world stage.
This knowledge is of benefit to amateurs.

The function of the transistor is multiplied
By the billions by now. Data bits they can store
As each one can be on or off at any time
But never on and off. That would be such a crime
To the physicists who would want to declare war.
The nature of one’s transistance is one of pride.

Just Relax

Nothing Is The Matter

In the making of peace with the way things are now
You prepare for excitement and blessings to come.
Now is where your control is. Choosing how you feel
In the moment, you ensure each one is ideal.
You need not know the details of where all comes from.
All you need do is relax and learn to allow.

Releasing of resistance relieves the tension
That prevents you from feeling well inside your skin.
Just Relax and be happy. Give up your struggling.
All that does is create roadblocks. It doesn’t bring
What it is that you’re after. Now you can begin
Feeling better. Get ready for your ascension.

The first manifestation you experience
As you relax some is an emotional one.
You feel better, and this is most significant.
The least bit of relief that is felt will enchant
Your most creative spirit. You can get more done
Doing nothing but being fulfilled by suspense.

Who the heck cares where you are if you are on track?
No one does, and you shouldn’t. All that you need do
Is love this present moment and watch for the signs
Of all good taking place in your life. This aligns
You to your inner being – the true part of you.
You will realize freedom and never look back.

Prognosis

Subject To The Sun's Behavior

Changes are taking place now as ever before.
It’s because now is constant, but people are free
To perceive now as they wish. Changes that will come
Due to sunspots may be hard to handle for some.
The way that the sun functions quite naturally
Will affect human nature, consciousness, and more.

Yet do we need more images of darkened light?
Both the face of the planet and that of the sun
Are reflections of each other. Just as above
So below. Are we creatures who do mostly love?
Can we say of the dark forces that there are none?
It will be up to us if things turn out alright.

Psychologically sensitive people will
Feel the effects profoundly. Some won’t feel a thing.
Those who are imbalanced will be even more so.
Gentle and loving spirits will blossom and grow.
But for most. It will be most exhilarating.
It may also enliven the instinct to kill.

They set only a certain pitch. They won’t direct
Our behaviors directly. Not at the mercy
Of the changes forthcoming, we are free to choose
How the changes affect us. To thrill and enthuse
Are their most worthy purpose if we are to be
On the planet much longer. Which do we select?

It’s Coming

Be Patient

In the art of creating you know your desire
Long before hand. Specific is your strong intent.
After that, universal forces take over.
What is done is completely done. What will occur
In due time is a feeling of true fulfillment.
You anticipate wonderfulness to transpire.

You know the essence of what you want the same way
No matter what it is. Do not be specific
Once the asking is done. You can be general
As all the cooperative components shall
Come together magnificently. So the trick
Is to not keep on wanting. It causes dismay.

Once you have asked the question, the answer quickly
Comes to you through impulses and inspiration
To take a course of action that is different
From behavior most usual. Through your intent
To remain confident that your asking is done,
On the way to fulfillment you are filled with glee.

But your keeping on poking around in the past,
Being way too specific than you need to be
About what has already been answered, will cause
Certain violation of spiritual laws.
You must know that It’s Coming! It’s done already.
Now kick back and receive all the good you’ve amassed.
