Results of Your Own Actions

We are our own judge and jury and for the most part our verdicts are determined by our own actions; what is done when no one is looking. The energy you live by is a direct result of your own actions…

Remember the cartoons from years ago when a Devil and Angel would pop up on a characters shoulders. This happened when a decision was needed about something. The pop up figures were always the image of the individual, it was because that’s who the real struggle and conflict is always with. Nothing outside of you can harm you as much as your own thoughts. A struggle mostly occurs when things aren’t lining up with the story of the way you think things should be. This energy is something that’s real. You can make it like you’re this spiritual guru and behind closed doors be selfish and unloving, but you’re not fooling anyone because wherever you go there you are. The energy that you live by is a result of your own actions. You are your own judge and jury and for the most part your verdicts are determined by your own actions; what is done when no one is looking. Your own actions shape your life.

There’s nothing to prove to anyone, you can preach love and recite all the airy fairy nonsense that fits into a so called spiritual box, but if you’re not showing loving kindness to all beings, it’s all being done for one reason and that’s to satisfy the devil cartoon character (ego) on your shoulder. So many conditioned stories are made up about life and this keeps one in their own prison. You can get in touch with this simply by seeing how much love you show to all beings. Lip service means little here because it’s not only the world that gets hurt, it’s also yourself. So much arises daily as the devil and angel characters pop up, just make sure the one selected allows for the loving kindness of all beings because that’s what energy you will get in return.

Desires Bondage

Don’t let the different consequences of desires lull you into an unconsciousness sleep. All desire leads to bondage (attachment) in one form or another regardless of what it is that’s desired.

If there’s always something to desire it’s because you don’t think what you have is enough. And if you don’t think you have enough, there will always be something that’s desired. Desire isn’t something that’s inherently a bad thing, why one desires is where issues arise and this is only because where there is desire, one thinks something is missing. What is desired only matters to the degree in how the thing desired affects your life. A desire to drink alcohol in access and do drugs have consequences much different then desiring to go to a program to stop using those things, but the desires core is the same and that’s what needs to be examined. Don’t let the different consequences of desire lull you into the sleep of unconsciousness because all wanting leads to bondage in one form or another and as stated this includes all desires.

You might say that’s not true, a desire to better yourself is a good thing, but that would mean you need things to be different to accept yourself. Accepting life exactly how it is is the only place you will experience the peace of not desiring things different. I’m not saying don’t better yourself, but if it’s at the expense of your peace of mind, what is its benefit. I say go for the gold, just understand even if it’s attained you will find it’s not providing the benefits you thought it would; shortly afterwards another desire will arise. Investigate this and see how desires arises from needing, and needing causes bondage (attachment) which causes suffering. Break free from desiring things to be different and you will inevitably stop suffering.

Poems

Hamlet

Hamlet

Hamlet came a calling
He didn't say a lot
He was tired and cold and hungry
We gave him honey
From a pot

We breathed warm air upon him
In a kind and caring way
But it really didn't help a lot
Poor Hamlet passed away

He hadn't lost his colour
Still perfect as a pearl
We wrapped him in an autumn leaf
That had just begun to curl

We placed him in the branches
Of a tree that fateful day
In it's arms a frozen moment
Of when poor Hamlet passed away

So sad he didn't make it
But glad a chance to share
In a kindly woven moment
A moment love laid bare

Fragile 'did' for Hamlet
How fragile you and me
Everything is fragile
Beware fragility!

How beautiful was Hamlet
That humble....Bumble.... Bee


The Chalk Stream Lament

Someone broke into my heart where I rise beneath the Downs
And stole my chalk stream water and sold me to the towns
I don't know what you called me I don't think I had a name
Call me 'crystal clear spring water' I was gifted by the rain

My shining waters sounded out
With every rise and fall
In August I would whisper
In January call
Now I move quite slowly
Will I die is this my death?
I don't want to join the silent
I want to live not fight for breath

I want my life blood back again
To leap and turn and run
Sing out loud and sparkle
Flood meadows and feel the sun
Let me spill into the river
Ride the tides that come and go
Let me run my course forever
It's the only thing I know

I want those who lived within me
And those who've passed this way
And all who lived beside me
To come home, home to stay
Here with me when I was born
Long before you came
By my plunder you may reach the stars
But you'll whither just the same

So should I die don't mourn my loss
I'm home, I'm in the rain
And all in all rain has to fall
Somewhere I'll rise again.
