Note to reader: I was using this space and place to post parts of a new slip-fiction novel series I am working on, Left Brain Right, the story of a young girl who hears voices. However, writing and teaching do not aways coincide, so until summer comes once more, I am going to be posting short poems. Thank you for your understanding. More from the actual story will be coming summer of 2017. These are still first rough drafts, so there may be spelling and/or grammatical errors.

How today’s poem can help you:

Theme: You can be like Spirit (quite, calm, consistent, compassionate) or you can be like Ego (loud, impulsive, inconsistent, and indifferent).  The choice is yours.

Author’s Notes: Me? I am going to try to be the calm among the chaos.  I am going to try to pull people into my peace. (I don’t always succeed, but the point is I am trying).  Also, do not assume that resting and/or calm is indifference or that I am not actively participating.  I participate putting spirit back into the world through my writings, through my teachings, and through my presence.

Becoming Like Spirit

As I become
more and more
like Spirit,
I change.

Spirit is found
in calm, quite, comfy places,
and so
that is where you will find me.

Spirit is found
just before dawn and at daylight
and so
that is where you will find me.

When spirit rests,
as the sun sets,
and ego comes out to play,
so too will you find me resting.
