Patience

Be patient with people.  People are dying just to be listened to.  Be one of the few people who truly listens to others.  Positive change happens with one person at a time; it can never be more than that.

The day I learned to smile at my mind
As if listening to the wind,
Is the day I learned I’d be fine
If I’d only listen and be kind.

The heavens above
Send down their love
In the form of many a sign
That we so often turn to blind,
But it’s when we open our eyes
That we realize
How beautiful the world can be.

Accept your fate

The maxim “Give yourself to God” has gotten me thinking.

If there really were an omnipotent all-intelligent being who created this planet, the wonders of nature, and every single human being, do you really think we would have a choice as to whether or not we give ourselves to him?

If we were able to understand something with that much power, it probably wouldn’t be all that powerful after all.

The heavens above
Know nothing but love.
We have gone astray
When we lost our way.

But we can re-find our track
As soon as we look back
And realize that lost we never were
We just needed to pick our heads up to find the cure.

Seeking self-love

This life can be so hard
But you can go so far
If you learn to focus on the good
And do everything you should

One day I wake up ecstatic
The next dramatic
With patience bear these changes
This is how your life arranges

Don’t fret when things don’t go your way
Nothings here to stay
Towards higher life we evolve
But still your problems never will solve

Accept where you are
Otherwise face the scar
That comes from self-hate

Meditate

There is a serious lack of opportunity to meditate in our modern society.  Technology is abundant, and one can scarcely glance an eye without finding something shiny or blinking to hijack the onlookers attention.

How rare is shininess in nature?  It’s nearly non-existent.  In nature, your eyes scan the understated hues that the earth provides, and it will slowly lull your mind to sleep, at which point you can experience the world uninhibited by the ever-wakeful thinking mind.

In modern society, this opportunity is never afforded.  Even in a ‘technology-free’ earth-toned room, any indoor scenario soon becomes so static that your thinking mind clicks on, if nothing else but to relieve the boredom.

It’s no wonder people take so many substances just to cope with living in modern society.

The holy grail

Is to find in the mail

That which you sent away

The day you decided

To be led astray.

Love

What is love?  Why is love so hard for us?  Why does the default seem to be critique and discontent? Why is love something we need to work at, when under the right circumstances it feels like the most natural thing in the world?

I want to feel love

I want to give love

I want to be love

I want to have love

I want to set love free

I don’t want love

To be possessed by me

I want to be in service

Of the heavens above

And with love as my witness

I’ll be the best I can be.

Driver of Evolution

I believe that there is one central intelligence that we all tap into to a certain extent.  But how long has this intelligence been around for?  For as long as humans have been around?  Or does it pre-date humanity?

I think that this intelligence that our cells are responding to is the same one that communicated with all the cells that existed before the cells that make up our human form existed.  It is the same energy source that leads every cell on this planet along the journey of evolution towards higher life.  

So then what does it mean for us, as humans, being likely the first life form on this planet that is conscious of this intelligence?

The depths of your soul

And the Gods up above

Can never fully be reached

For they always must remain one step ahead.

Letting go

Letting go is perhaps one of the hardest things we can do, and yet it is also the most important.  Let go of how things should be and frustrations vanish.  Let go of how others should be and dislike vanishes.  Let go of how you should be and low self-esteem vanishes.  Let go of how the world should be and your need to fix everything vanishes.

Letting go of how things should be allows you to enjoy how things are.  And this is the key to happiness.

My soul wants to be free

But still it’s trapped in me

I’ve become my own prison

To that which won’t listen

I want to let it go

But there’s still something it needs to know.
