Late Fall

Shivers come as breezes blow brisk,
Birds dance thick chasing last meals,
My mind runs over in frustrated pain,
Worried visions of the coming white,
Summer long gone and winter is near,
Yet behold the new glory, colors at play,
Awaken to a wonder, beautiful new day,
Old path doth call me pull and enchant,
Magistry enticing to come out and dance,
I cannot refuse so I push at these wheels,

Because We Can, We Should

Hold to your soul, embracing oneness,
Steadfast and strong, without straying,
Concentrate the energy and reach relaxation,
Like the newest infant sated on the fullest meal,

Wipe the dirt from your world view,
Can we truly be without imperfections,
In loving all people and ruling a nation,
Can we not be true without this manipulation,
Awaiting the heavenly gate’s opening and closing,

Can one hold to the Mother’s feminine principle,
To understanding clearly all directions in respect,
It can be done without the strife in which we do live,
We bearing it, rearing it, this relevant goal of tomorrow,
Bearing without possession

Achieving better, without arrogance or greed,
Help raise for union, never for domination or control,
This Mystic Virtue, the meaningful path of the Great One,

This need be us all…

Drifting Memories

Art and Words to settle my mind

Stirring It A Bit

  This is a link to a video that provides one of the best presentations of this subject I’ve seen. It’s a lazy Saturday, so give it a watch, while you’re you’re watching allow yourself to try to put aside our natural tendency to ‘judge’ rather than think and consider, looking at our world with a mind open to the relationships you’ve been able to observe throughout our lives. (but probably pushed to the back of your mind to avoid the conflict those observations create within us, just like we most of us do to avoid taking some kind of responsibility for agony shining from the eyes of that poor street person begging along our daily path,)

  Allow yourself to look openly into the possibility of humanity having been breed and specifically trained like various breeds of dogs created at a master’s whim. Look closely at how the structures of the ‘education’ we were raised with might have directed the focus of our outlooks, attitudes,  and personalities as adults, even the possibility that we were designed to bend us into what the few need us to be in order to further and sustain their own  control agendas. ‘They’ve’  had thousands of years to prefect ‘their’ techniques and skills for this. Things like “My Country is the Greatest Country, My God is the only TRUE God, so if you don’t believe ‘Right’ then you must be taught the ‘Truth’ until you believe ‘Right’ or be eliminated for you heresy, The rest of all life on our world means nothing compare to Man, because only Man was created in ‘God’s’ image, My countries War is a duty I must support quite simply because only we know the ‘truth’ and so you have to be wrong and stopped permanently, or You have resources you aren’t intelligent enough to use properly and I need them so I have a ‘God Given Right’ to invade your country and take them, killing you all if you even dare to resist.” Obviously, unfortunately I could go on and on 😦 

  By now, even the few of you that have bothered to read this much of my ‘rant’ are probably thinking I’m talking about some kind of conspiratorial theory crap or something but I’m not. Allow yourselves to finally wake up, think for yourselves, and dream again of exactly what a ‘heaven’ we could create right here right now, if only we can get together as one, with mutual respect, acceptance, and caring. Embracing with admiration the gifts of small differences we have as the blessings they truly are. We can still be all we could be, as one within the unity of existence.

Darwin’s Great Discoveries and Today

Another Answer

  Another ‘someone’ asked me again, “How can you be so bright and happy all the time, with all that is ‘wrong’ with the world today?”  I thought about it and hope that maybe this is a good way to answer both him and a few others.  I hope this is the right spot on the boards for it.

Peace and Love,
Easy

You hear it all around you everyday
“There is so much wrong with the world.
There is no hope for tomorrow.
The people have lost their way.
We must war on all the bad.
There is no future for our youth.
No future for mankind!”

You have heard it so much that you believe it true.
Despair and foreboding fill you.
And hope fades, as anger grows.
You swear to make a difference.
You promise yourself to make the world better.
Heal the wounds, repair the damage, restore the balance.
You declare ‘war’ on the evil.
The war on terror, war on drugs, war on ‘them’, war on their ‘ways’.
Yet the days and years continue to pass by.
The great wheel turns and the problems seem to continue to grow.

To put the world right, we must first put the nation right.
To put the nation right, we must first put the family right.
And to put the family right, we must first put ourselves to order, Set our hearts right.

A good start would be a promise to yourself to be too calm for worry.
Worry brings fear and doubt, holding you back from what you can be.
Worry serves nothing more than to consume your resources and limit possibility.
Focus on what you can change, and let go of what you can’t.

Make yourself too noble for anger.
Anger only hurts the one who is angry.
Anger builds walls of pain, and promotes continuation of conflict.
Let your anger go and use the strength of it to hold to your connection with life, Spirit, and happiness.  Find peace where others find war.

Be too strong for fear.
Fear is another weakness that stops us from working toward the good we all seek.
And what do we really have to fear?  Pain? Death?
Holding to our connection to Spirit, to our knowledge of our place in the universe, the true balance of all things, and to where we come from and return to, holding to all of that, what is there to truly fear?
Put fear from you, and instead embrace life and the living of it.  True happiness comes from fully enjoying the smallest of moments, and living in peace and happiness with all creation.  Fear drives this away from you.

And finally, allow yourself to be too happy to permit the presence of trouble.
Do not ‘make war’ against a thing, but rather work toward happiness and a better future.  No matter what is around you, no matter what others may be saying or doing to persuade you, simply hold to your own happiness and share that with others.  Darkness only has the power over you that you allow.  Hold to the happiness and embrace the joys of life.  Allow yourself to love openly and freely, and to share that love with all of existence.  Spread that love, happiness and joy all around you whenever you can, and you will find that the world will respond in kind.
Teach yourself these simple goals, and perhaps, and maybe in surprise, you will find that all those problems have somehow gone away, and your world is a much better place.

Damaged Goods

Oh to be happy

I need to be happy

My life seems to be a waste

Only damaged goods all say

Ruined by long years of addiction

Once young, happy, with great future ahead

Now all but lost, ruined, only a dregs of this world

Where gone all my hopes, my dreams, my love, my care

Where gone now that child of wonder staring at moon lit sky

I sit here alone, my own pity, my own shame and tears

No hold on life, family driven off, no true friends

What’s this, a whisper, a tiny glimmer of new

A feeling forgotten, cast off, ignored

Dim light doth shine around me

Changes, a growth, strength

I reach out to embrace

The heart of me

A warmth

Calm

I suddenly somehow know, still time to turn around, a hope

From nowhere, strength, courage, drive, all flood in

I meet a wonder, a smile, dry, clean, offers help

And I reach out, desperate for anything

This new friend, understands, knows

No judgement or censor, only care

Has been here themselves

But they’ve won

Are winning

Life again

A start

How can I

Do I dare but try

Fear the risk, the pain

I still dwell on failures past

I fear not to be worthy, too far gone

But new friend, hand on shoulder, positive

I begin to believe, to dream, to know

Hard work together, but forward

A struggle yes, but we continue

I slide back, but begin anew

Must win, not give up

And I know will

I become

Grow

Am

I grow weary

Confidence is fading

But my friend reaches out

Strength and courage is the lend

The battle continues, a war for my life

Together we fight it, one small step at a time

Day by day I get better, a community do I meet

New friends by the hundreds, much help, much caring

And I’m winning, I am, each day be a lot the better

Yet never to lose the knowing, I must battle still

Each day more growth, my family talks again

My new life a wonder, this my newest world

A brightness surrounds me, all hope anew

I walk in the glow, with a soul

Discover I can help now

Others in the seeking

I reach out, care

Gently lead

Guide

Is this reason

I question this all

Is this my new meaning

A driving force now fills me

Without want, or need I find must

A calling, this great thing, this I must do

And I hold to the bright day, allow it to shine

They reach out and I answer, giving the all of myself

And I suddenly realize, I’m that stranger that helps

I share love, understanding, guidance and care

We together begin, their new voyage to life

I join in their battle, together we fight

And grow they do now, small steps

Each day a bit better, new hope

I can rejoice in this sharing

Their climb from the dark

Falter as they may

Help them I do

For my life

I always

Will..

Like a blinding flash, I suddenly realize that by being able to freely give, without expecting anything ever in return, I have become what I was always intended to be. A happy, loving, caring human being, in touch with my inner self and filled to the bursting with a loving soul, moving through this journey, able to make this world around me all the better. With each giving, I grow more and more. And the more I grow the more I can give. You too have this within you, just as you too can make a difference in your world, and in yourself. I see your future, and it is great!
