Eliminate Impurity

Purge The Waste

Diamonds are forever. We all know that it’s true,
And we’re made of stardust. It’s a natural fact.
What are the signs that your mind is effectively
Engaging with your daily life? What you may see
Is a pattern in the way you think and react
To your world and its issues. The diamond is you.

In the rough you may be now, and that is okay.
Blemishes only mean that you’re also human.
Is the sky ever affected by the dark clouds?
A mindset that is rigid most surely enshrouds
The pure light of your truest self. Know that you can
 Shine as brightly as you want and have things your way.

Even in a ditch the diamond still gets to shine.
Light enhances its beauty, and your constant care
Keeps its brilliance unfettered by what is not true
To yourself because dullness is not part of you.
You are worthy in your own right. Do No Compare
Yourself with others, then everything will be fine.

The truest part of you cannot be distorted.
Your self-centered ways can be removed consciously.
Your emotions and thoughts can cause you certain stress.
They can also bring you ultimate happiness.
You can be, if you want, completely blemish free.
By the universe you’re totally supported.

The Best Teacher

The Wisest Advisor

Looking back on my school years, I personally
Had a rough time because I am mentally ill.
Way back then, diagnoses were nonexistent.
The odd way that I see things will often prevent
Understanding of social cues yet I can still
Function sufficiently well in society.

You’re expecting a nice story. I’ll give you one
Not about how my troubled life eats at my heart
But about how it’s possible to overcome
Feelings of inferiority that come from
Childhood trauma of which I have made a fine art.
Misery in my old age I now see as fun.

Normal folks have ‘best teachers’ – the ones who have made
A life long positive impression upon them.
Simple words spewed without thought will alienate
As will attitudes that radiate racial hate.
The best ones are happy to deal with your problem.
Above and beyond they work. They’re on a crusade.

Early on I was told that I wasn’t the same
As the others in my class in obvious ways
And one not as apparent. It turns out to be
A most powerfully creative part of me.
It’s not like I am giving my enemies praise.
The Best Teacher teaches how to live without shame.

That Was Then…

The Past Is Of No Use

Once my manifestations always seemed to go
Somewhere else and my life was an absolute mess
Of revenge and frustration. I know well by now
How to shift my mood consciously and to allow
Natural goodness to which I have full access.
Did I need pain and sorrow in order to grow?

Maintaining my vibration is certainly key
To my forward momentum. I cannot afford
The wasting of my life force on feeling depressed.
It’s my decision only if I am obsessed
With the negative aspects which should be ignored.
I must entertain only thoughts that will please me.

The work is finding the path of least resistance.
Practicing feeling good until I have allowed
Wonderful things to happen, it’s easy for me
To feel appreciation. I am completely
In relationship with life, and I am endowed
With a spirit that masters any circumstance.

I need not defend or justify to others
Who’ve decided that I don’t deserve happiness.
It erodes my vibration. That was in the past.
Day by day I am learning to live the contrast
Provided for my growing. I suffer much less
And I’m more willing to do what my heart prefers.

Alone

Biography of Being

Ever since my childhood I’ve been too much unlike
Other people. I’ve never perceived things the way
They are seen by most others. I do not complain.
For the first time in my life I know I’m insane
But there still is an enormous price I must pay
For the harm that I cause while my mind is on strike.

I cannot get excited about the same things
That would turn on most anyone else without fail.
I’m not sad for the same reasons that others are.
I’ve not felt the same happiness. It’s very far
From that felt by most others in oddest detail.
A victim I have been through my false beginnings.

Everything that I loved I loved all quite alone.
Back when I was a little one loved and cared for
I uncovered for better or worse mysteries
Of existence that nary another one sees.
I know that I am here to experience more
Than the average seeker. My strange life has shown.

From the natural places this earth shows to me
Come the questions and answers that are of essence
To the best of my knowing that all is okay.
This world I am a part of. The part that I play
May seem small but in essence it’s rather immense.
All that I must do now is be happy to be.

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.

Influenced By The Future You

From The Self Yet Becoming

A version of your future self does now exist.
In your mind’s eye, imagine how that one would be
Doing things differently and take careful note.
This idea may seem to some rather remote
But if you are open to being completely
In alignment this exercise can’t be dismissed.

Watch this self of the future and imagine how
It would feel about everything you’re doing now.
Imagine if that self is doing the same things
In the same way it’s done them. This pondering brings
On a flood of insight if you will but allow
The connection to happen. Do make it your vow.

More aligned with your passion your future self is.
Try to mimic in every way how it behaves.
It would be more the way you would want it to be.
Watch the differences and you will clearly see
All that it is that you’re doing that only enslaves
And propels you into over analysis.

Mirroring the behaviors of the future you
Pulls you in the direction of how things could be.
Rather than your remembering ways of the past
Which will anchor you to your prevailing contrast,
Information and images come easily
To help you on your journey in all that you do.

Change Your Expectation

The Openminded Approach

On the verge of a wonderful thing happening,
Most people contour and arrive naturally
At a strong expectation based on what they see.
We take what we’re observing too literally
That we pay attention to it and completely
Miss the best of what could be and all it can bring.

Scientists gather data. We think we should too.
We collect heavy batches and sort through them all
Studying and comparing, so what we expect
Cannot be any different from the subject
That is right in our faces when seeing is small.
We do not have to prove things like scientists do.

You keep noticing things. They keep manifesting
Just the way you predicted them. It’s a good thing.
Pay more attention not to things as they are now.
Set your focus right past them, and this will allow
Wonderful expectations that make your heart sing.
Impulse and inspiration this one change can bring.

Expectation can only be changed when you merge
Together the platform from where you are right now
With something that you want that is way beyond it.
You can know that it is a benevolent split.
Never mind what is not here. It will be somehow
And it all comes about with a sufficient urge.

About Death

The Inevitability of Transisiton

What we know about death we must learn from the dead.
Does that sound facetious? I would rather it not.
The dead know all about death, the living, therefore,
Must consult them subjectively to gather more
Of an accurate picture than what can be got
From the rubbish pumped into the oversized head.

Otherwise, it is scary to contemplate death.
The most frightening thing is that it isn’t known
What will happen thereafter indeed if there’s one.
Information from others can satisfy none
Of the deeper questions. We are fantasy prone
Regarding the conditions after the last breath.

The devoutly religious, guided by scripture,
Have a definite blueprint of how it will be.
So they’re not as afflicted. There’s not as much fear.
In the flesh, no one’s vision is perfectly clear.
As one does contemplate the possibility
Of all becoming nothing, there’s certain allure.

We recall facing this world as little children.
Threats were plenty, and safety was not guaranteed.
There were all kinds of monsters, but behind them all
Is one’s own dissolution. And every close call
Reminds all that in life there is always the need
To ponder where we came from every now and then.

Ignore The Contrast

Many Roads To Distraction

I’ve no multi-ring circus in my living room.
I gave up watching TV a long time ago.
Those big screens are but passageways to or from hell
Depending on the kind of stew in which I dwell.
I had doubted my sanity, but now I know
There are madmen among us who live to entomb.

It’s as if Cinderella is caught past midnight.
Natives have become restless in this troubled land.
I would love to feel safe anywhere that I go.
Every ill thought I have against people I owe
To the real fear that grips me. I can’t understand
The concept of pure evil and the ultra-right.

I had better cease giving this much energy.
That in itself is dangerous if it is more
Than I give to what pleases me without a doubt.
There are more worthy things that I could write about.
And in order to do that, I have to ignore
Everything in this madness as it seems to be.

Getting into that inner space where all is well
Is the only thing I control absolutely.
Difficult is my journey if I focus on
This sick world I’m a part of. I’d rather be drawn
To the peace overwhelming I find within me.
For right now, I would like to remain in my shell.
