You & I Are Meditating

 

I go into my brain,

Imagining that I and Father my

Are one the same:

One and the same.

 

Today it’s fun

To think

That You and I are meditating:

Two in one.

 

Aim always the same:

Restoration of a state of mind

Of kindness,

Peacefulness

And focus.

 

I’m going now

Back to my TV show,

With minutes spent seconds ago,

Productive.

Everyone Has Faith

     Everyone Has Faith

 

Everyone has faith.

The only question is the choice we make.

Everybody worships (kind of)

What we worship is our choice –

From leaning, and from combination

Of that leaning and condition.

 

Choose, we choose what we were born to choose.

The gene, the fate, position, lot,

Perhaps to win or lose:

Strange as it sounds, our knot.

 

The crux

Is that life sucks

But faith brings trust, conviction,

Optimism, hope and courage –

All positive and negative, yin and yang

As well you know.

For what is not?

The Pleasant Difference ‘Tween The Spiritual & The Scriptural

The Pleasant Difference ‘Tween The Spiritual & Scriptural #2

 

How to say this briefly:

How to find words for the inexpressible.

They exist.

Here is the gist:

Components – churches, sects, cults,creeds:

The claim of being chosen.

Inner spirit doesn’t need a system woven

Into scripture claiming knowing

What is best for all.

One wherein if you’re good you rise

And if you’re bad you fall.

 

The faith-based places emphases

On unity of life within the mixture of belief;

Consensus, peace and joy, and getting these;

Transcendent over time and space,

The sense that you are face to face

With truth above reality,

Its indescribability.

 

Not impossible to voice

With Love that comes, fear that goes!

Erotic, no, more loving kindness big & small,

Universal, if you will.

Permeating, calibrating,

Affixing to an All that’s spirit: all in all.

 

Practices to help along:

Meditation, psilocybin, prayer and song.

The non– theistic preference

Needs to be demystified,

With road for genius or dunce.

Not piety, religion, magic, paganism, or god-based;

Theological or physical,

But meta-, deeply meaningful,

Yes mystical:

The core of all.

I Am Jewish

Today as I read about the vandalizing and the bomb threats I feel, no realize that may be as important as ever.

       I Am Jewish

I read about

An upgrade of the Jewish hate

To say nothing of the Jewish state:

Renewal and revival

That makes the Jew a rival

Present and eternal.

 

Pressed anew

To say “I am a Jew”

Interned in worlds of other faiths,

Each based

On love

But peopled by

A fractured many

Filled with fractured understanding,

Wear my Star of David,

Feel the coming holidays

With childhood love of coming days,

As always,

Living with those few-ish

Who know also that they’re Jewish,

Forced by some upbringing me,

Living, as I always have in lands where I, minority

Forget, neglect, omit so easily

My true identity:

I am become the Jew I’m born to be.

The Pleasant Difference ‘Tween The Spiritual & Religious (revised, revised, revised)

   The Pleasant Difference ‘Tween The Spiritual & Religious ( revised, revised, revised)

How to say this briefly:

Firstly,

Words that help convey the hidden.

They exist.

Here is the gist:

Churches, sects, cults, creeds, the claim

Of being chosen.

Tenets frozen,

Woven into scripture

Which professes knowing

What is best for all,

Where if you’re good you rise

And if you’re bad you fall.

 

Spirit’s -ality puts stress on union,

The approach to life

Emphases

On oneness under all beliefs;

On peace and joy and getting these;

Transcendence over time and space

A sense of being face to face

With truths about reality, its indescribability –

Yet not impossible to give a voice to.

 

Fear that goes,

Love that grows.

Agape’s universal call,

Connecting to an All in all.

 

Practices to help along:

Meditation, psilocybin, prayer and song,

Means to fit all shapes and sizes,

Geniuses as well as dunces,

Non-, theistic preferences

Which need to be demystified.

 

Not magic, pagan, or god-based,

Theo-physical, but meta-: deeply meaningful,

And mystical, the core of all.

The Pleasant Difference ‘Tween The Spiritual & The Religious

 

How to say this briefly:

Firstly, find words for the inexpressible.

They do exist.

Here is the gist:

Each has components –

Churches, sects and cults, their creeds:

The claim of being chosen.

Pure spirit’s -ality doesn’t seem to need

A system woven

Into scripture which professes knowing

What is best for all,

Where if you’re good you rise

And if you’re bad you fall.

The spiritual as an approach to life,

Seems to place the emphases

On unity within the mixture of beliefs;

On peace and joy, and getting these;

Transcendent over time and space

And, most of all,

A sense that you are face to face

With truth about reality,

Its indescribability.

Yet not impossible to give a voice to;

Love that comes, fear that goes!

Erotic, no.   A loving kindness big & small,

Universal, – if you will,

That permeates, recalibrates,

Connecting to an All that’s spirit: All in all.

Practices to help along:

Meditation, psilocybin, prayer and song:

The mystical both caused or opened.

That said, non- theistic preference

Needs to be demystified, a road for genius, dunce.

Not piety, religion, magic, paganism, or god-based,

Not theological nor physical,

But meta-, deeply meaningful,

Yes mystical!

The core of all.

For Those Who Can’t Believe

For those who can’t believe

I leave you with: God is just word

To gird up life and lessen pain;

Intended to encompass unexplainables

That science or psychology can’t clarify:

The ecstasy of insights

Helplessness of death,

Mystery philosophies

Of paths that lead to happiness;

With logic all their own to laud,

Reality reduced to primal cause

That some call God.

 

Problems of belief lie in

The gene or flair; the character

Or IQ that x factors cannot cover.

 

There, in entity invisible, in force likewise,

Books, systems aim to clarify

In symbol, parable and story;

Threads for some, nonsense for others

Who prefer to live by ethics; other codes

To take a hold of.

 

“God” is odd,

And hard;

A word,

A shortcut, like the Sanskrit Om –

To something real, a waterwheel

To rain down onto neuron’s brain.

 

That’s almost all that I can say

Leaving those who can’t believe

Until some other insight comes its way

Some Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday

Friday, Saturday or Sunday.
