How Does Doubt Become Trust?

A Spiritual Transformation

Any person who meditates knows how it feels
To be at peace and thoughtless if but for a while.
Signs of things as you want them you may disbelieve
Out of habit. The images that you receive
Are the prelude to something complete and tactile.
One must be open to what life clearly reveals.

But you are meditating – quieting the mind.
In this way you suspend disbelief at your will.
One cannot remain thoughtless indefinitely.
Doubt returns as you experience ecstasy
In your dreams of fulfillment. The ultimate thrill
Is to know satisfaction in all that you find.

Do not go for certainty in any event.
It will goose up the distrust. Our reality
Will confirm that we shouldn’t believe it because
It has not happened yet. This logic has some flaws.
You may be thinking so much that you cannot see
Some way clear of the self-talk that causes torment.

You can feel satisfied in the thought of some thing
Not in having the power to make it happen.
Feel the satisfaction and in time it will turn
To the trust for which you most desperately yearn.
Practice feeling delighted again and again,
And find ever more things that will make your heart sing.

Get Used To The Blessings

Gifts Of The Peaceful Spirit

The best thing about contrast is that it helps me
To see black and white clearly when I have the need
To see through the eyes of those who see their own fear
In the eyes of their enemies as I appear
To be one of the two things. In truth, I am freed
From my own misperceptions if I dare to be.

And indeed It’s a blessing to take it all in.
Sorting through what life offers is why I exist.
Mediocre my life has been compared to those
Of my race whose ambition and excellence shows
That I should not have been born. The thought is dismissed
At the height of each moment of living in sin.

I thank God for the moments – each and every one,
For that space within each one is where I release
What is not of use to me and begin anew.
I’ll rely on God’s guidance in all that I do.
Can I not truly say I believe in world peace?
Peace within my own person is the solution.

I’ll get used to things working out. Often they do.
Wholesome ideas flowing and perfect timing
Are what is natural. It is not the reverse.
Thinking otherwise things can only get much worse.
Surely nothing can interfere with my rhyming.
Doing what I enjoy keeps me from feeling blue.

All You Have To Do

Here It Is

There’s no need to be fake about feeling your best.
If you feel yourself trying then something is wrong
With your way of allowing the good times to roll.
When you learn how the laws work you will have control
Of your daily momentum. It doesn’t take long
To attain what you’re after because you are blessed.

Find something that you just feel good about and then
Focus only upon that. Let it resonate
Within you until you feel momentum increase.
It becomes easier then for you to release
All the negative drama you so well create.
You have been in that awful way time and again.

You may have five things going that are important.
Four of them may go terribly and only one
Is doing quite the opposite. Focus on it
And the others will improve by not just a bit
But a whole lot. A whole lot of work can get done
When you know things you can do from things that you can’t.

What’s so hard about thinking about things that feel
Good instead of the things that will make you feel bad?
You’ve been trained to believe in struggle and effort.
But you know now to disregard thoughts of that sort.
Focusing on bad stuff drives you stark raving mad.
You are the one who knows which is of more appeal.

Timing Is None Of Your Business

Let Momentum Unfold

Many things are in the process of becoming.
So is it possible for timing to be off
On something that is so right? Of course that can be.
To call it wrong timing is unnecessary.
At this notion your truer self would surely scoff
One can take care of business by doing nothing.

Timing is none of your business, and this is why.
Throughout your life you have gathered much momentum.
All cooperative components are in place
To bestow upon you an intelligent grace.
You can trust that what you have will always come from
How you take to the process you cannot deny.

What it would be like you can only imagine…
Alone trying to move all the pieces around.
There are too many of them. Leaving them alone
Relieves you of the task of grasping the unknown.
By trusting in the process content can be found.
Then you will witness timing like it’s never been.

Find one reason after another to partake
Of the feeling of satisfaction through your day.
Know that all that you’ve asked for is manifested
In vibrational escrow. You are not tested
In the least by the process. Take time out to play.
You’re no master of timing so give it a break.

Get Out Of The Way

Be Invisible To Life

Your true self is in heaven and is always high
In vibration, but your lesser self may not be.
Yet the contrast is forever in your control.
If you let go of worry, You will feel more whole.
As your frequency rises, much more you can see.
The emotional spectrum is what we live by.

The rise in your vibration defeats the contrast
And the lowering of it makes living more tough.
Our beliefs come from thought forms that we’ve practiced well.
By the way we are living most others can tell
What our nature of thinking is and other stuff
We’d prefer to keep private and ever bypassed.

Meditation is helpful. It quiets the mind
By your focusing on something neutralizing
Like your breathing or rainfall. It’s not difficult.
You will know a new wholesomeness as a result.
You could also just appreciate. Daydreaming
Is another fine method if you’re so inclined.

Do feel blessed enough to let yourself feel good.
You can trust the nonphysical out in deep space.
Why not trust those in spirit who guide us along?
Getting out of your own way, you cannot go wrong.
Let the universe show you its infinite grace.
That self which is your truest knows well that you should.

Things Working Out

Getting Used To Goodness

Definitions of craziness merge into one
Simple test of unworthiness. It’s pass or fail
And proctored by the populous. Heaven knows this.
If you let others dictate the terms of your bliss
You will never be blissful. You may now exhale.
The long wait for approval cannot be undone.

Your unworthiness proven by circumstances
That you have no control of, you’re not at the top
Of a game that seems not yours yet in which you play.
Innocent and without fear, you do what you may
To keep up an illusion with no way to stop.
It is hard then to evaluate your chances.

Being crazy is childlike because it is fun.
We place judgment on actions based on how they feel.
Feeling natural freedom to feel as you please
With good timing and ideas flowing with ease
Is for you all quite normal, natural, and real.
Getting used to things working out no one should shun.

Following your own guidance when society
Imposes its conditions takes courageous strength.
Let it grow within you as an expectant child
Of the one you once were before it was exiled.
Your life is but a movie that’s running full-length.
You are actor and audience and all that be.

If Tomorrow Starts Without Me

Welcoming Death

Tomorrow starts without me. Someday it shall be.
Should the sun rise and find your eyes dampened with tears,
Please don’t cry while you’re thinking of those things unsaid.
I know how much you care for me. Tears that are shed
Speak for you and me also, and I have no fears
For a place has been readied in heaven for me.

If it should start with out me, know that what’s occurred
Is that my name was called. Then, taken by the hand,
I was told I must leave earth and all that I love
And ascend to the kingdom of heaven above.
I cannot argue with what the Big One has planned.
As I looked back, a tear fell, and your voice was heard.

It seems almost impossible I’m without you
And can’t hug you goodbye. How I want you to smile.
Emptiness, memories, and sorrows I’ve become.
When I think of the things of the world I grow numb
At the thought of your sorrow. Yet after a while,
I rejoice in the new work I’m given to do.

And when I walked through heaven’s gates I felt at home.
God looked down upon me from a huge golden throne
And said, “This is eternity. All that I said
Will be yours is now yours. You have nothing to dread.”
I’m now ready to give up the earth life I’d known.

In the realm of eternity is where I roam.

A Spoonful Of Contrition

A Most Selfish Act

I must know that I’m worthy although I’ve done wrong.
For my soul, I seek justice, but I must live on
So that I suffer vividly in solitude.
All who own me know they have the right to intrude
Upon my conscience all through the night until dawn.
My regret become karmic is where I belong.

All must seek retribution for what I have done.
As my life caves in on me, all that I should know
Is that some small redemption exists for this soul.
I don’t ask that the balance of my life be whole
But allow me the substance to pay what I owe
Otherwise, my existence is much worse than none.

But I can’t get there from here. I know for a fact
That I must have the feeling before conditions
Start to manifest for me. My sorrow blocks it.
How do I balance karma if I’m poorly fit
To function as a human among sacred ones
Who provide my life lessons with relative tact?

Universe, please connect me to all I deserve.
I have no fear in asking; just guide me somehow.
With my head hung in sorrow, intense is my shame.
I hate that I have no one but myself to blame.
Can the Law Of Attraction still let me allow?
Or am I just a screwed one with colossal nerve?

Though I can be facetious in this agony
The damned knot in the stomach is losing its voice.
If it’s silenced completely, is my life ended?
Or will I find relief from existential dread?
Seeing myself as worthy is my only choice.
I cannot turn by back on deciding to be.

The Virtue Of Selfishness

Fountainhead of the Fearless

All were born to be selfish. There’s no other way
To live out life experience wholeheartedly.
If we all were not selfish, we could not exist.
To be self-less means breathing would cease and desist.
Fundamental the basis is for me to be
Fully conscious and self-aware most every day.

To extract from experience my own selfhood
Can be done but completely only when I’m dead.
Otherwise, I am in it for all that it’s worth.
Self and how I experience it since my birth
Is my primary focus. I’ll not be misled
By a notion that isn’t that well understood.

Selflessness is absurdity – an idea
That in fact is quite foolish. It has no meaning.
So, the question becomes, “Who does myself include?”
The answer is the key to how my life is viewed.

It can be cosmic or at least global a thing
And perhaps an effective pain panacea.

Redefining what selfish means gives me freedom
To step outside the boundaries placed in the mind
Giving oneself a false sense of separateness.
Universal Identity I can express
In a world that maybe was selfishly designed.
Selfishness is the only place where I come from.

Acts Of Faith

Absolute Belief

The illusion of separateness between me
And all others and everything gets in the way
Of my trusting the universe. It must be wise,
Much more so than I am with my limited eyes.
The Tao nourishes all things in consummate play.
Letting go of the ego, I may better see.

I’ve the need to relinquish my power façade
When I notice I’m up nights consumed in worry.
My decisions, well thought out, made under duress,
Yield calamitous outcomes and increasing stress.
Snap decisions made instantly happen to be
The right ones in the long run. Now isn’t that odd?

Faith enormous and heart moving cannot be blind
For the sight is beyond what the senses behold.
It’s a leap into wellness and feeling at ease
In the world that I’m one with. Its intent to please
I must know absolutely. What e’er may unfold,
When I see life correctly, is loving and kind.

To be one with the universe, trust that it will,
Through its infinite intellect, meet all my needs.
Treat it like it’s a dear friend whom I haven’t seen
For a really long time. Then the rapport between
Me and all that exists blossoms free of the weeds.
It and I are the same thing. This should make me chill.
