Do Self

    Do Self

    Heal yourself before you touch the others
    Flow is from the center outward
    Loss of central focus comes in rummaging
    Through the secret lives of others
    Disconnection from the self creates illusion
    Pain is not a healing force but a warning
    Warning of things gone awry
    Joy is the force of permanent change
    Remove the thought patterns of loss and pain
    These hold no gain in the newness unfolding
    Mankind is not a wayward child to punish
    Each creates their own understanding of the cycles
    Repeats of the patterns increase stubbornness of disease
    Let it go, the cruelty of childhood and the rejection of parents
    Mother is not the women, nor is Father the men
    Beaten down child, rise to maturity
    Dismantle the hatred and the angered indignation
    Succor not on the destruction of others in your circle
    Heal the core of the internal misbeliefs
    There is not a them and you, there is only an I Am
    Free to choose its path of becoming
    Stick not to the discordant patterns of interference
    Witness do not unharness the creation from its creator
    Open awareness shift the design from the center
    Content to be present detach from outcomes
    Happen, let it happen, permit the changes from within
    Addiction is a distraction from the self
    Self is all there is release the rest it is illusion
    You will only know others by knowing yourself
    In rejecting yourself you reject all there is
    The others hold not the answers to who you are
    Your secret lies buried under the shadows of misbelief
    You keep looking out there as though lost to self
    Climb within, uncover your secrets, the gift you are to yourself
    Forget the fear, leave behind the blindness, embrace realness
    The outer world is not more important than the inner world
    If its a mess inside the outside reflects this
    Calmness is your center, your birthright, your vision
    Stake your claim, face the storms, give birth
    Value comes not from without but from within
    Throw away your love for self and you cannot love others
    Hatred inside performs hatred on the outside
    Your dreams are yours and belong to no other
    Sell it not, give it life, breathe joy into it
    Measure not on a standard set by others
    Please yourself in the beauty of creational force aliveness
    As you grow widen your influence beyond yourself
    Take no prisoners leave them free to choose
    Disarm their protests of distrust and betrayal
    This they create on their own, a pattern of loss
    Grant them the freedom to claim it, to dwell within it
    As you think in your heart so you are, see clearly then
    Change is within, you control it, you envision it
    Give this task to no other you are the only dweller within
    Watch how you see things and interpret meaning
    Heal yourself and you will understand universal value

    This is so unique; each line could stand alone as a quote or saying, yet together they produce valuable, layered pieces of wisdom. I really like the meaning here, especially about letting go of the past. So many people seem to get stuck in the past. It's something I used to struggle with fairly frequently. Love the lines: mother is not the women, nor is father the men/ beaten down child, rise to maturity... amen to that...

    Thank you d for taking time to read and comment, I'm glad it spoke to you for we yet rise. Collectively we are letting go of all that no longer serves.

    Use it where ever you can, the ideas are collective and free. We have a long way to go, all of us. Thank you for your input on this piece dh.

    Poetry is finer and more philosophical than history; for poetry expresses the universal, and history only the particular.
