The Great Night Of Shiva

Spiritual Celebration

On the fourteenth of Phalguna something takes place
On the earth. There’s an upsurge in its energy.
Every life form experiences this increase
In life force. It’s a time when there’s a huge release
Of the stressful effects of personality.
On this night the magic of Shiva we embrace.

So what’s Shiva? It’s ultimate reality…
Also a personal God as well as one who
Is present behind all that the self can perceive.
On The Great Night Of Shiva one wants to achieve
The consciousness of Shiva supreme in its view
Of creation. From the third eye we want to see.

Of all creatures on earth our spines are vertical.
Through the night of Shiva people keep them that way.
They remain awake because they want to transcend
Normal everyday consciousness so they will spend
The whole time staying upright. Attention they pay
To the energy palpable and supernal.

One tremendous cosmic existential aspect
Of this great night is it’s an opportunity
To engage and encounter the experience
Of the consciousness of Shiva. It’s quite intense.
Overcoming the darkness of the mind is the
Purpose of celebrating this urge to connect.

Money Story

Open Money Book

Other people have stories of wealth and success.
Why can’t I? If there’s so much of it to be had
Then there should be enough that I can claim my share.
It’s not helpful to think that the money’s not there
For my taking. My spirit shall be my comrade
As I deal with a life that’s an absolute mess.

“Tell a better feeling story,” is what I hear
From my spirit. Its voice is as clear as a bell.
But if I change my story can I change my life
From one characterized by extreme mental strife
Self-inflicted to one where I’m doing quite well?
I must overcome my most irrational fear.

What I have lined up for me is well on its way.
It’s a foregone conclusion. I just need to speak
In the present tense because it’s already done.
I feel worthiness, trust, and appreciation.
Only thoughts that feel good are the ones that I seek.
In a high state of consciousness I want to stay.

Something that causes my expectation to shift
Is belief in my worthiness. I’m more aware
Of the value in little things and the big things
Are easy to accomplish. My happiness brings
Good things to me and there’s lots of goodness to share.
Happiness, it turns out, is a wonderful gift.

Tomorrow

Organized Time

Tomorrow is the most dangerous word in your
Vocabulary. Although it’s a symbol for
Hope, it can just as easily be the reason
That your dreams remain dreams. To get anything done
Is a struggle, yet your dreams you cannot ignore.
Tomorrow isn’t the palace where now you can store.

Tomorrow diminishes the significance
Of the air that you’re breathing right now. It tells you
That someday you can begin your journey and that
In comfort you can wait. But you’re not looking at
The big picture. Tomorrow has nothing to do
With this present moment and current circumstance.

Tomorrow masks itself as an escape for those
Held down by fear. They are most resistant to change.
They’ll encourage you to be content where you stand
And that you have your whole life to do what you’ve planned.
But to one who is present this message is strange.
It’s contrary to what the enlightened one knows.

There will never be a moment in your life more
Precious than the one you’re living now. Be aware
Of the present. Tomorrow can last forever.
Opportunities come to you almost never
When you take on the attitude that you don’t care.
This moment is the one that is worth living for.

Cash Flow

The Stream Of Abundance

Filthy richness is cleanliness of attitude.
Opulent success stories of others can make
Me aware of my pathetic situation.
It is because of my righteous indignation
Against rich people that causes me such heartache.
Because I feel this way, does it mean that I’m screwed?

I would like a Mercedes or maybe a pair –
One to drive and the other for sleeping with me.
I am here to express my enthusiasm
For the treasures unto me that have not yet come.
Can I rid myself of resentment completely?
If I want to be wealthy, indeed I must care.

I am here to express the significance of
What is coming from where I stand. In other words,
There’s a shifting of energy and emotion.
I can be wealthy just as well as anyone,
So my negative self-talking is for the birds.
True richness is achieved on the basis of love.

It’s a foregone conclusion that I am worthy
And magnificent. I feel appreciation
For this place where I stand now. Each little success
Builds upon those before it. I am nothing less
Than a master of money which translates to fun
The center of my point of attraction is me.
