Turning Crap Into Gold

Physical Alchemy

Utterly catastrophic my whole life has been.
Now that I’m in my seventies I realize
That I have been a tyrant – selfishly insane.
Silently I’m remorseful. I suffer the pain
Of a qualified loser. In most people’s eyes
I am one who the entire world should chagrin.

How I got this way at this point matters not much.
Little time I may have left to make it all right
If that is even possible. I have cut ties
For this lifetime. I know that was not very wise
Even for an old bastard. I’ve no appetite
For connecting, relating, confiding, and such.

But I do know how to express myself with ease.
It’s the single most significant way for me
To make sense of my troubled self and to explore
Possible ways to monetize what I adore.
With some consciousness my life could turn out to be
Something that has some meaning that others may seize.

There will be other lifetimes. Opportunities
I will find most abundant. My sorrow ignites
The torch of my continuing this existence.
There’s no other option. I have some common sense.
The only thing to do is to focus my sights
On eternal redemption amid my feces.

A Message For These Times

Guidance Through Turbulent Momentum

Many roads lead to nowhere as the momentum
Of the fluid uncertainty bathes the weakness
In the soul of humanity. How could one not
Notice and respond to it. Somehow we are caught
In a sea of confusion, hatred, and distress.
Do we need to be fearful of what is to come?

…Not if it’s just a snapshot of how things appear
At this moment in history. The injustice
Cannot go away prior to feeling relief
From all thoughts that have grown to a rigid belief.
Those that do not feel helpful I need to dismiss.
I create my own existential atmosphere.

This journey is more fun than it is not, so I
Can keep reaching for better. To get out ahead
Of whatever is happening is to pre-pave
How my next moments unfold and how I’ll behave
No matter what the circumstance. Life I can tread
From a place of alignment where I need not try.

Constant knee jerk responding to talk in the news
Is the way to keep focused on how things are now.
At a turning point we are, and whichever way
It can turn is my pleasure, which means I will stay
In the state of receiving. The love I allow
Keeps me free of the turmoil. Thus I cannot lose.

Talk To Your Cells

Bodily Wisdom

Most of us assign all thinking ability
To the big blob of gray matter between the ears.
This indeed is an inaccurate assumption.
Transmission and reception of pure thought is done
By each cell of the body. To us it appears
That we do all the thinking most exclusively.

Each cell has consciousness, and each wants to feel well
But the conscious decision is not all that strong.
So the body responds to the collective thought
Of the whole human race and to thoughts that are not
Beneficial to wellbeing. Living cells long
To be given direction that they may excel.

Doctors think that some ills are hereditary
But the fact is that cells of the fetus receive
Worrisome thought transmissions from the sick parents.
The fetus thinks not consciously so it makes sense
That the force that is stronger is what cells perceive
As the way that is normal and the way to be.

You may talk to your cells in a personal way
Telling them that you love them each and every one.
You can speak to them as if they are your old friends.
Tell them what you want from them. This one act transcends
The beliefs of society. All that is done
To communicate wellbeing strengthens your day.

Things Will Change

The inevitable Action of Being

Happiness is a simple choice. Hard it may be
To let go of the need to control everything.
The greatest dilemma to befall humankind
Is demanding that conditions be well defined
Before some satisfaction does efforting bring.
It’s not by desperation that one becomes free.

Can I be happy in this moment anyway
Without something pleasing outside me to occur?
I can’t control conditions. They’re impossible.
There must be some solution. I remain hopeful
That a positive change, one that I’d most prefer,
Can happen from within me. I pray that it may.

There are only two choices. My environment
I can respond to, then try to manhandle it
Into humble submission. Or I can create
A vibration of happiness to orchestrate
The environment I want. It’s best I commit
To the feeling of living in full enjoyment.

Conjuring up an image is how to begin
To get my circumstances to respond in kind
To the image created. The changes will come
If I can stop the habit of beating the drum
Of unworthy crusades. I can leave them behind.
Nothing will change outside until there’s change within.

Finding Ease

The Pursuit of Inner Peace

Absence of difficulty, struggle, or effort
Is what I want to feel at this moment in time.
Can I talk myself into it from where I am
Without changing my usual feeling program?
I want so much that there not be tough hills to climb.
Fear grips me so completely that I may fall short.

Life means handling the contrast as best as I can
Without ill will to others, self-loathing, or pain.
Lightening up on myself would feel really nice.
It’s high time that I take nature’s helpful advice.
When resistance is created there is no gain.
All I’ll do is come up with another bad plan.

The best word I can find for what I’m wanting now
Is the word ‘ease.’ I want to feel satisfaction
That I’m ever in the right place at the right time.
That warm feeling of confidence is most sublime.
I want comfort in knowing that everything’s done.
All I need to do now is relax and allow.

To get into that centered place is all I need.
Where my natural comfort and worthiness lies
Is my point of attraction. To feel good feels good.
I like slowing the frenzy down. It’s understood
That the self who is fettered is just a disguise.
“All Is Well.” In this statement my spirit is freed.

A Message Just For You

Your Personal Calling

We who watch you as you live have this much to say.
You must soothe your resistance to find true relief
From your troubles and sorrows, and when you do so
Then your point of attraction is likely to grow
Ever stronger. Your times of discord will be brief.
We take notice of how you live throughout your day.

We see when you have shifted and take full delight
Because we see your future begin to take place
In the eternal now that you sometimes can’t see,
And we celebrate greatly what has come to be.
There is so much potential in the human race.
We would love you to focus on what has gone right.

You cannot get it wrong because It’s never done.
All eternity you have for reaching your peace.
All your power is now. What takes place around you
You attract by attention. The thing you can do
Is to concentrate only on things that increase
Your magnetic awareness and wellness begun.

You create your tomorrows by how you feel now.
Tomorrow never comes. When it does, it’s today.
Feeling bad only makes tomorrow even worse.
There’s no need to delve into that which is perverse.
Practice feeling good now so that you don’t fall prey
To your negative thinking. Rejoice and allow.

An Automatic Universe

Perpetual Self-Creation of Being

The ceramic world image has gone through a change.
Now a more automatic model is perceived.
Western science was based on a strict set of laws
That is nature made by God who is the first cause.
Before the eighteenth century people believed
In a universe rigid and not too damned strange.

So the laws of God and nature were much the same
But to think of all natural phenomena
As responding to laws is like making train rails
For all that is seen happening. All the details
Are at best a prediction of the plethora
Of all things that are possibly fit to exclaim.

One does not have to suppose that there is a why
For all that exists. One can make predictions
Without the God hypothesis. With but the law
Does science now adhere to. Conclusions they draw
From observed regularities are just the ones
That improve their predictive skills and clarify.

Studying the behavior of the past with care
One makes better predictions, and that’s all they are.
Regularities rampant capable of flaw
Is a closer definition of the law.
Logic dictates that in this way we have come far.
One goal as a race is to become more aware.
