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.

One Minute Away

An Instant To Eternity

All my work is to get on that high flying disk.
It’s the path that I know has the least resistance.
It is easier done earlier in the day
Before old thoughts and patterns do my peace betray.
In the morning while still fresh I have the best chance.
I can get there by feeling contented yet brisk.

The first thing in the morning I’ll take one minute
To remember who I am and where I belong.
Then I’ll think pleasant things about places to go
And about things to do that will help me to grow
In the ways of the spirit. I can remain strong
For that short length of time. There is not a dispute.

Anything that I can do that’s pleasurable
Is a thing that’s worth doing. In fact, it’s a must
For spiritual health and that of the body.
Thinking thoughts that are positive helps me to be
In a state of contentment and ultimate trust
That I will in this day be profoundly stable.

I’ve much determination in finding that place
Of the highest vibration that I can achieve.
It lets me know the good things in life that I’ve done.
Then a chain reaction of blessings has begun.
I can’t help sounding foolish and sorely naïve.
That’s okay as long as I am receiving grace.

Feel Good

There's No Other Purpose

I’ll Feel Good! That decision is easy to make.
If I made it my mantra, would I live life well?
I can’t muddy the waters by things that I say
That create a vibration that gets in the way
Of the way that I want things. The story I tell
Is the one that makes living bliss or a headache.

If I reach for the very best I ever thought
And then try to sustain it, indeed I will fail.
But as I move through my day, the best thoughts I find
I can manage to maintain, I’ll be more aligned
With the life that I dream of in every detail.
I’ll add bliss to my story to thicken its plot.

On subject after subject I can reach that state
Where the clearest of insight comes most easily.
I can feel life within me wanting to take shape.
Wholesome manifestations I cannot escape,
And in such a condition, I’m totally free
To allow the momentum to help me create.

All I need do is sharpen my signal a bit.
I’ve become a bright, clear one to the universe.
My innate incandescence or dimness acquired
Is my conscious decision. All that I’ve desired
Is at stake, and it’s foolish to go for the worse.
My work is on the energy that I emit.
