The Impossible Dream

Urban Depression

What you’re seeing and hearing right now is nothing
But a dream. At this moment you’re dreaming with the
Brain awake yet the dream of the planet prevails.
It’s a dream with myriad explicit details
And it’s lived out by all human society.
Onto this way of being you were taught to cling.

The dream of this planet and of society
Is one of rules, beliefs, laws, religions, cultures,
Social events, schools, governments, and holidays.
People come up with grossly elaborate ways
Just to be here as humans. As the dream endures
You believe that it’s the only reality.

You did not have the opportunity to choose
Your beliefs. As a child they were forced upon you
And your domestication brings you suffering.
The emotional drama is a constant thing
To be dealt with in this world. So what can you do
To live your life correctly so that you won’t lose?

Your own personal dream does not have to become
An ongoing nightmare. It can be otherwise.
You’ve made tons of agreements with who, what, and where…
But the ones you make with yourself give special care.
Do whatever in your dream that most satisfies
Your fulfillment. Your heart is where it must come from.

A Bedtime Process

Joyful Slumber

It’s because of your action orientation
That you want to believe that it takes hard work to
Make things happen but as you learn to direct your
Thoughts deliberately you’ll find that you’ll have more
Power and leverage. So much more you can do
With your focus. It’s your creative foundation.

You can focus your thoughts more consistently in
The direction of your heart’s desire rather than
Squandering the power of your thought by thinking
Opposite to what you want. Like a ship sinking
It may be hard to rescue good thoughts but they can
Be recovered. Right now’s a good time to begin.

Once you’re in bed try to recall some of the most
Pleasant things that occurred today. There may be some
Things that happened that were a lot less than okay
But direct your intention. Do your best to stay
Focused on something that you got some pleasure from.
Find a good thought in which you can become engrossed.

Ponder it when you find it. Prime your positive
Pump by saying things such as, “This day was alright.
I like how that thing happened to turn out the way
That I wanted.”
Recall the best parts of your day

Then you will have a most restful sleep through the night.
In the morning you will have your best self to give.

Happy And Positive Always

Pure Happiness

Once I was bright and happy – a source of sunshine
To the people in my life, in fact, everyone
I encountered enjoyed my enthusiasm.
Now it seems that a part of my heart has grown numb
Due to all of the struggle and hard work I’ve done
For things in my life that will never become mine.

Yet I know by now that by my being happy
My health benefits. My mind and body work best
When I’m happy. There’s plenty of strong evidence
To prove this and it makes absolutely good sense
To make sure that I remain at my happiest.
I want to give to this world the best I can be.

Pleasantness is the issue. Of life energy
Pleasantness is called bliss and of my surroundings
It’s called success. Pleasantness of my emotion
Is called love, compassion, and complete devotion
To the needs of my fellows. My pleasantness brings
Into focus my power. It’s who I must be.

If I’m feeling ecstatic I will hit the ball
A lot better than otherwise but I am not
The issue if I don’t. Once I understand this
Then I am only one moment away from bliss.
No way am I the enigma that time forgot.
How I feel in each moment is truly my call.

Transition

Last Rights

She’d been ill for a long time. Anticlimactic
Was her passing. Her breathing just slowed down and came
To a stop. My impatience I felt guilt about
For a while, but I’ve had time to figure that out
For the most part. I know that things won’t be the same.
Generally my numbness is ataractic.

I don’t know what I expected to have occurred.
Did I want to see angels or her spirit rise
To the ceiling and exit? Did I want there to
Be some last words between us? And what can I do
To maintain my existence as I realize
How this loss affects me such that I’m without word?

The most perfect creation is the one where the
Next logical step just happens. I can become
More aware of her presence if I believe that
She’s not gone. In a spiritual habitat
She exists now. It’s where every being comes from.
I can line myself up with her reality.

I know now that her inner being was waiting
For exactly the right moment. I’m the one who
Had created the drama through my ignorance.
I had made too much of the entire circumstance
I am interested in her new point of view.
I reach her any moment by concentrating.

Set Your Day For Magic

Morning Devotion

There’s what needs to be fixed, and then there’s your desire.
Put your attention on that which is easier
And more fun to accomplish. Orientation
Toward making things happen gets not much work done.
There is tremendous leverage and great power
In your thoughts. Not a bit of work does it require.

Your action orientation in life causes
You to think that it takes hard work to get things done.
But as you learn to deliberately direct
Your thoughts, things working out quite well you can expect.
Focus more consistently in the direction
Of your wishes. Forget all about what was is.

Trying or working too hard is not the best way
To accomplish things. Prepare your day for magic.
Before bedtime the night before while still in bed
Let the things you appreciate drift through your head.
Fall asleep in a good state. This will do the trick
Of creating for yourself a wonderful day.

Prime your positive pump by saying sorts of things
That accentuate how you felt. Stick to your goal
Of remembering all the good things that occurred
Through the day. There’s no way one can call this absurd.
Once you get really good at this, you’ll have control
Of your day’s most eventful and fun happenings.

Speed Up Manifestation

Instant Creation

You have closed the gap, when you’re feeling satisfied,
Between you and all that you want. Your attitude
Plays a big part – the whole part in what you receive.
You know what you have up your spiritual sleeve
As well as others who are aware of your mood.
How you feel deep inside is something hard to hide.

You are flowing with the new and improved desire
Even though it has not manifested quite yet.
It may take some time because momentum is slow.
There’s one thing that you can do to get it to go
A bit faster, and that is to just simply let
Satisfaction for right now take you much higher.

When you’re satisfied, you are not in your own way.
Complaining about what has happened in the past
And explaining it to others who then agree
And from groups is not conducive to being free
Of resistance. If you want things to happen fast,
In a strong state of satisfaction you must stay.

Where you are, here and now, is a bouncing off place
To more of an alignment with your perfect dream.
Justify not to others what you choose to do.
Each moment can be one that’s exciting and new.
You’re caught in the current of a fast moving stream.
It will take you to all the things that you embrace.

Let Go And Trust

Relinquish The Fear

A man was with his mother when she transitioned
To nonphysical. It was ‘anticlimactic’
As he put it. There was a sense of impatience.
He fell victim to his self-created suspense.
Should the death of someone ever be ‘fantastic?’
Digging deeper into this case cannot be shunned.

She made her transition peacefully and calmly.
Her spirit was waiting for the perfect moment
To let go of this world. She has now reemerged
Into that which is nameless. Her spirit was urged
And she followed without issue. Gladly she went.
The next logical step was the one come to be.

Yodeling down the canyon was not what he saw
Nor the kind of excitement that would scare someone.
The question that needs answered is how does he make
The best of it. The answer is to come awake
To the fact that she’s not dead. Illusion is spun
From beliefs that are fettered in fiction and flaw.

He created the drama that did not take place
As expected. Her spirit was more in control
Of the whole situation. His acknowledgement
Of his not letting go and trusting the event
Proceeds as it is meant to has rendered him whole.
His connection with her he’ll now fully embrace.

Dealing With The Ego

Adjusting The Perceptual Mask

In the forest enchanted live many green elves
Who keeps changing their image with each passing wave
And the mask of identity common to all
Doesn’t fit uniformly. Some citizens fall
In a tough category, therefore they behave
As if they have no knowledge of their higher selves.

The green elf is the ego. They are all the same.
All do well when they’re healthy, and self-expression
Makes the world not so boring, but entertaining.
Yet the ego deficient in kindness will bring
Only negative drama. The situation
Of the human condition does not have a name.

Not only humans have egos; nations do too
As well as any group with a common mission.
Every creature in the forest has an ego.
We decide on which colors will be best to show
So that our hopes and dreams will come to fruition.
Logical are the reasons we do what we do.

It does not take possession, as some people fear.
It is not of the spirit but of the body.
The ego is a tool that is used for a while.
Separate from the true self, it can be hostile
But it can’t decide by itself how we’re to be.
We have much to acquaint ourselves with while we’re here.

Are There Good And Bad People?

Judgment Is Of The Judge

Another doomsday message that will not be heard
Through the oceans of white noise and others voices
Is today what is offered. My daily routine
Has to do with recording whatever I’ve seen
On my path. And it turns out that I make choices
Contingent to dichotomy and what’s preferred.

Human Nature demonstrates we all are this way –
Always ready to judge something evil or good.
Attitudes form unconsciously and instantly.
That is why it’s so difficult to see clearly
Through the sea of opinion. In all likelihood,
My perceptions are weighted and often betray.

What is liked or disliked by any entity –
Be it person, a sports team, a nation, or skin –
Become part of our makeup. What e’er we decide
Will direct our behaviors. Our egoic pride
Spells disaster for earth. We commit mortal sin
On the largest of scales and with impunity.

Everyone oscillates between means and extremes
Of behaviors along spectra. No one is one
Or the other completely. The space I create
Will evoke good or evil. I’ll not complicate
What is raw truth and feelings. Then growth is begun.
On the global scale, are things as dark as it seems?
