For Goodness Sake

Dal Lake, Kashmir-2 Painting by Suhail Naqshbandi

Dal Lake, Kashmir-2 Painting by Suhail Naqshbandi

Sometimes when I awake, there is an almighty mountain and a lake

Standing between my faith and my dreams, for goodness sake

But no matter how impossible ‘the way’, may at first seem

know that it can’t stop the growth or expansion within, that enables me to create

Creativity is the energy that makes everything feel so deeply, wonderfully and deliciously real

***

And even though sometimes when I awake

A mighty river may appear, slap-bang-in-the-middle

Gushing between my faith and my dreams

Despite all that I have seen, it doesn’t stop me from staying true to my ideals

It doesn’t stop the inexplicable sense of ease and flow, or the zeal

And so, I give thanks that the Earth still turns and the Sun still shines

The Birds still sing and I feel fine, with all of life’s appeal

***

And even though when I awake, it might take, a moment or so, to align

I know, that a joyous attitude is simply just another ‘state-of-mind’

A state of being that I can choose, at any given point in time

Sublimely independent from anything observably external

Because ultimately, we are all creators of our own realities

Each of us, from a source of energy that is always pure and eternal

All one has to do, is allow the reality most desired, unto oneself reveal

For attached to every thought and feeling is a physical material sequel

Therefore it’s helpful to orientate one’s most-frequent ‘point-of-focus’ in the vicinity of all things desirous and pleasurable

Lest one unwittingly creates unwanted realities, going around and around in circles…

Energy, Expansion and Eternity

reach-for-dreams

Scientifically, it follows that if energy ‘cannot be destroyed’ and can only ‘change form’,  then death must be an illusion

Because no-one can ever stop being: a-direct-extension-of-Source-Energy

So technically, nobody actually goes anywhere, because as a vibrational-being-of-energy, one can only keep transitioning, between ‘non-physical and physical’ states-of-being

It’s a never-ending-journey of growth and expansion

On the path of becoming: a-master-of-alignment-with-Source-Energy, where the material-physical, is conjured from the metaphysical-spiritual

Learning to become a ‘Conscious-Creator’, enjoying the process of manifesting the realities most desired, through the correct use of one’s heart-supported mind

For behold, we are all made from the same stuff as Source-Energy, the energy that creates Worlds

Made in God-Source-Energy’s own likeness, nothing new there, this we’ve always been told

But what ‘own-likeness’ actually means, is that we are all created from the one-and-the-same immortal-soul

Therefore, whatever one energetically extends, or withholds

Unto one’s own-self, one also carbon-copy magnetises, or repels

For all energy is eternal

And so this is why it is absolutely key, to embrace the concept of self-love and self-care, with genuine sincerity

As an essential way of better-understanding one’s true role

As co-creator / curator, by extending authentic consideration and empathy

To oneself, each other and the entire Natural World

As a true reflection of ones inner-integrity

And as a holographic fragment of the ‘All-There-Is’, for the ‘All-There-Is’, is LOVE

Of which Love is the purest form of Energy, with which one can align

The energetic signature of God-Source-Energy, Divine

Love without attachment to conditions, is achieved by raising one’s energetic vibrational offering, in-line

With the vibrational frequency of Source-Energy’s sweet sublime

To love and accept oneself unconditionally, as much as Source-Energy loves you, and every single living being, already!

Vibrational-alignment’ allows for a serendipitous, synchronicitous, energetic-flow, that naturally magnetises all of one’s hearts desires, without effort, manipulation or control

By letting-go of resistance, and instead surrendering to faith, trust and confidence

No-one can ever escape this natural Dharmic, Khamic law-of-energy flow

As this cyclic source of Primordial Qi, is actually ones ‘primary identity’, don’t you know?

For one can only be here now, as a direct Extension-of-Source-Energy, and so therefore, everyone and everything else that is here too, is also a direct-extension of YOU!

Because there is no ‘out there’, there is only ‘within

The inner-extension of Source-Energy, that connects us all as ONE!

This is what we share, with ALL other manifested-extensions-of-Source-Energy, out there

Who are all as equally deserving; of love, money, success and affection

However, until one looks deep within the inner-recesses of one’s heart and mind, one often winds up repeating, the same old patterns, time after time

Patterns of insecurity, fear, doubt, lack and unworthiness. Or greed, power, control and manipulation, all of which are indications of: a separation from Source-Energy’s loving vibration

And so, here we all are suffering from human-amnesia, re-learning the same basic lessons of self-worth, social inclusion and cooperation, on the never-ending journey of growth and expansion

Continually remembering and forgeting, aligning and disconnecting, over and over, again and again, forever and ever, and into infinity, Amen.

Do What The Robot Says

maxresdefault

The rise and rise of the consumer zombie apocalypse

Mindlessly sleepwalking, texting and screen-swiping through the city-streets

From left to right, in dumbed-down, eyes-to-the-ground, automation

A brain-dead-lack of independent thinking

Pre-programmed avoidance conditioning

With an absence of common greetings, such as; ‘Hello’ and ‘Good morning

A singular, lack of sympathetic, or empathetic acknowledgment of other human beings

Resulting in an epidemic of narcissism, that’s hardwired-in

No choice now but to swallow the smart-sim pill

To give away one’s power and abdicate all free will

To become another blue dot in the GPS matrix

Trapped inside-the-box, with all the other clones and non-descript profile-pics

Caged in a wall-less prison of barcodes, passcodes, and ‘QR Codes’

Caught in the crossfire of the compulsory upgrade download

Every hour, on the hour, half past the hour

Bowing on ones knees to the corporate Mecca

Oh Hail! Oh Hail! Seduced by the god of strategic product placement

And the religion of subliminal advertising

Another cog in the machine of aspirational lifestyle desire and consumerism

Complicit in the capitalist pursuit of en-mass homogenisation

A world-wide osmosis of ‘bland’ and ‘same’

At the expense of environmental annihilation and plundering

Hoodwinked into relinquishing all responsibility

A soulless, loveless, absence of integrity

Towards ecological-sustainability and the community

Pulverised into oblivion

I’m alright Jack! Get your own comfort-zone

And if/when you do, then I’ll be back to undermine and humiliate you

To justify my taking it all away from you

Even if we share the same DNA, or went to the same school, OK

Apparently all’s fair in the world of ones and zero’s

And the nine-to-five, tick-tock, tick-tock!

And the loopholes in the microscopic small print

And the disclaimer in the extremely long T’s & C’s (that no one ever reads)

Just click ‘Agree’, download the App, and ‘BUY NOW!’ Click! Click! Click!

Now! Now! Now! Yesterday! On the double-quick! Quick! Quick!

The sooner we can shaft you with a ‘Continuous Payment Authority’ on the sly

Just fill out the form, tick the check-box and apply

More credit, more loans, more interest-free

More repossessed homes and hi-jacked property

Because you must do what society says in order to be ‘happy

You must have ‘more’ don’t you know? And you must believe what the newspapers say

In order to be a good citizen

So run along now and be a good little human

And do exactly what the robot says, even if it’s morally and spiritually reprehensible, or even criminal

Be a good little robot and do what the program says

Just like all the other robots out there, who-once-were-good-people

Who forgot what their dreams were in the harsh light of day

Who stopped believing that their dreams might just be possible

And can’t even remember who they once were all those years ago, anyway

The Solstice Project

‘INNER SUN’

A sunny disposition radiates from deep inside one’s heart

Like a beautiful beaming ball of fire

Whose warmth can melt away a frown with a single smile

Impossible to take anything as personal

When one comes from an elevated position, place of unconditional love

Non-attached acceptance for all

Just like the Sun always shines, way-up high above the clouds

Heart-centered love is the rainbow’s kiss in the sky

That transforms the mundane, the monochrome-grey

Into colours that dance with laughter and joy

For ones inner-core is made from the same stuff as the Sun

We are the ‘Star-Dust Children’

Honnouring our Mother Earth, and Father Sun, daily

Shining in the gratitude of love made visible

For One Sun, One Earth, one perfect solar-system

Not forgetting the gift of life, being alive and human

One’s spiritual sunshine always begins from within

And emanates without, united in selfless compassion

For everything and everyone, as a pure self-reflection

Of One heart, One pulse, One Love, One nation

Elixir of Love

My fears are not that I may cease to be

Rooted, steadfast, embodied in a world of physicality

And without fears too, for the deserted drying

Of heartfelt words, or inspiration

Forever drawn to all my time spent, in dedication

For no greater pleasure do I feel, may’st I apply

Whilst chained, imprisoned, in this dimension

My only freedom, flight of soul, needs must express

Such a deep felt love, for all humanity

A curious quest, I cannot explain

Impression’d on high from an invisible plane

So sublime, that poetic craft

Is not required; for metre, or to rhyme

Unless such craft imply, inject, ripened hearts

With the jewel of ‘inner meaning’

Inner truth infused with love

All pervading and genuine

Connecting precious principals beyond mere words

Which seek to make whole thus human kind

In complete align

So that intelligent insights into our complex universe

May penetrate not only the heart, but also the skin and the mind

Whereupon tinsel-gilded illusions

May fall away into nothingness

Instead replaced by a delicacy and a gentleness

A refinement of the senses

Through an indiscriminate understanding

That the elixir of love

Is wisdom plus integrity

And connects us all

To every single living being, or entity.

The Second Coming

The second coming is not any one man, or one woman

It is the explosion of ‘collective consciousness’

When the hearts of men and women are opened, and awakened

When the ability to respond (response-able) is greater than to react

When closing the door in separateness doesn’t sit well anymore

When one realises that what one does to another

Actually one does unto one’s own Self

For when one rises above the arrogance of the ego

One realises that in a Universe of infinite possibilities

Developing compassion means no longer taking anything as personal

For now the ‘I’ is no longer alone, is a valuable member of the collect-i-ve

And the more people on the Planet there are

The more weird, wonderful and surreal

Everyone’s projections / reflections are gonna get

One is going to have no choice but to open to one’s divine human potential

Because the pain of staying the same will be greater than that of change

It is humanity’s destiny to evolve

As a species

Beyond the comfort zone

To awaken to the God / Goddess Self

To open to ones inner Buddha, Allah, Shiva/Shakti, Jehova, Krishna, Christ

Inspirational role models who demonstrated by example

How to work together to heal the self, each other, the Planet

How to redefine beliefs, change perspective, forgo judgments

Allow for emotional, psychological and spiritual evolution

Love and accept the unlovable within the self and each other

Forgiveness, everyday!

For no one person is free until we all are

And consciousness is a choice

Like a Yes or a No

As simple as binary

To a one from a zero

From an off to an On

Like a chain of dominoes

A viral infection

Of enlightenment

A colossal global cognition

Of conscious understanding integrated into Being

Integrated into our everyday choices

Training the ego-mind and the heart

To align as one

Takes time and practice

But it can and shall be done

Planting Seeds

Becoming whole

Calling in missing fragments of my soul

Long lost parts retrieved, reintegrated

Subconscious mind tapes updated

Sub-personalities reunited

Old inner tyrants transformed

Into inner best friends

Offering supportive inner dialogue

Instead of driving me round the bend

I can become my own inner alchemist

Time to step into my inner shaman’s shoes

Reprogramming painful old memories

That can cause the blues

My heart and my mind are now sacred spaces

Like a temple or a synagogue, special places

Where only I can decide and choose

My life’s true direction and ultimate purpose

By tapping into inner resources and tools

I am planting seeds of consciousness

Recycling good memories from the past

To work for me now, in the present and the future

I can achieve rapid progress on forward fast

Via pleasurable emotional re-association

Like key frames

In life’s great Technicolor animation

Seeds of Consciousness
