The Burden of Being Me

Lord
relieve me
from the burden
of being me.

God
allow me to
rest in
thy being.

Lord
permit
my ego
to die.

God
grant your
presence
within me.

Lord
may the distinctions
betwixt us
be none.

God
may I walk
blissfully
within thee.

Lord
may we
at last
be one.

Not the Captain but the Sea

When I
was a
young man
and the
world more
certain.

I had
little use
for faith.

I was
master
of my
destiny.

A
captain
upon the
sea.

Armed
with
sails
of will
skill
and destiny.

Yet
often
have I
crashed
upon rocky
shores.

Surviving
narrowly
companions
matched in
skill
if not
luck.

Revealing
the precarious
nature
of fate.

And the
limits
of will
and skill
upon the
sea.

Thus
with no
more
adequate
tool.

I arm
myself
with faith.

I am
not the
captain
but the
sea.

Were That I a Cup

A full cup
cannot be filled
possessed already
of all it can retain.

Add liquid
and it will
overflow.

Filled now
with an admixture
of old and new.

Yet appearing
as it always has
filled
and satisfied.

Were that I a cup
forever full
overfilled
an admixture
of old and new.

Concealing
the mystery
of fulfillment.

Full
to overflowing
satisfied
yet ever changing.

 

 

 

Simply Be

You are not the role of your circumstances or birth. You are the experiencer. You are the watcher of your thoughts, that exists outside of time and space. Wear your masks lightly. Play your roles with a secret smile. When possible, forget the story you tell about yourself, and simply be.

A Life of Knowing

Do not live with faith, instead strive to live with knowing. Faith implies belief without evidence, which creates insecure belief at best. Knowing on the other hand, is founded on evidence and creates a much more secure confidence in ones destiny. I know the universe has conspired in my favor even before my birth. My proof is a life that even in hardship has been a catalyst for my growth and evolution as a spiritual being. So live life with the knowledge that you are exactly where you need to be in every moment, and that good or bad will ultimately inure to your benefit.
