What so freely flows through the mind of man,
flows outwardly to each step of journey’s path,
reality the chiselled belief and expectations
of what mind renders as life:
propensities, experience and chosen ideals
like the sculptor’s tools,
to fashion life in reflection of mind.
How often people struggle within the steps,
the very path chosen, yet they fashioned it,
and the answers to all that beg desperate attention,
reside within the mind that created
those expectations and misunderstandings,
that appear to be a world in opposition;
and so our turnstile lives remain.
There is but one solution to life’s woes,
and that is a spiritual acceptance within,
the knowledge that ascension in life is about the mind,
never about the physical life that represents
the shell of consciousness,
but the consciousness itself, the heart and soul
within which who we really are, resides.
To accept the mind, the process of being,
is the answer to all contention and imbalance,
the challenges of physical life just the process of learning
and the ascension of the soul,
and if thought is honed to accommodate that facility,
them acceptance becomes the placater of all ills,
and pain and loss just experience.
We are imperfect beings given opportunity to learn,
and in the physical world experience can be painful,
yet it is the mind in thought and acceptance
that overcomes, not the body,
so the spiritual pursuits of love, compassion and understanding,
are the tools to shape the world of thoughts,
thus shaping the physical, and in that finding purpose.
