Satisfied Now

An outside view uses distractions based on the attachment to the world of “I”. An inside view has no such attachment and is based on the eternal; there are no distractions because there’s satisfaction right now…

Have you ever thought I can’t wait until I go on vacation, or if only my boss was different, or if only I could change jobs, my spouse, my circumstances, retire, if only, if only, if only. This is the distraction of the if only mind; a mind conditioned to constantly look out there. This if only distraction tells you things need to be different and when they are you’ll be satisfied. This distraction only occurs because you don’t know how to be satisfied with yourself in the here and now. It’s truly mind boggling how it seems our entire struggle with life is to find satisfaction and we look in all the places except in the only place that it exist, now. When you’re satisfied with the way things are now, no distractions occur and there’s no need to look outside because you have what you were looking for; when you stop looking, you stop being distracted.

Please take the time to investigate this so you can understand the nature of your distractions. There would never be a need for the mind to be distracted if you were satisfied right now. This doesn’t mean you don’t do things that makes life more beneficial, but your sense of well-being shouldn’t be based on anything from the outside. An outside base uses distractions from the world of ”I”. An inside view is based in the eternal, in love, in Universal Energy, and it’s the inside view that doesn’t need to look outside because there’s satisfaction with life right now…

Listening to Silence

We are torn between wanting to listen to silence and wanting to attach to the surface sounds of the world. Sometimes just by being sensitive enough to the first part, it provides the energy necessary to prevent the second…

The selfish and destructive conditioned mind behavior that was in control of my life is now mostly in a place of neutrality. I would never say the conditioning is gone for good because just by labeling it that would give it the needed energy to return. It’s very important to see what’s in place as being the point where we connect with the world, but not making it into a story. We live in a world torn between wanting to listen to silence and wanting to attach to the surface sounds of the world. Sometimes just by being sensitive enough to the first part, the energy necessary to prevent the second is provided. In stillness all truth arises. The point of this is to show how you only need to focus on being mindful of yourself, not focusing on saving or trying to change the world. The more mindful you are of your own behavior and actions, the more things around you will change.

You will never stop the sounds of the world, but you can listen to your own heart and not be a part of the surface noise by keeping your own house in order instead of being overwhelmed trying to change everything else. When we are mindful of our own conditioning and we take care of the place where we connect with the world, we offer the world our true self. Not by trying to change it or by ignoring the surface sounds, but by simply listening to the silence that’s in place beneath the noise…

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.
