A Shooting Star

As the sky lights up
By a shooting star
So can a moment of joy
Brighten up our life

When the mind is present
To see the soul displayed
One can use this spark
To guide the way

However brief
A direction is seen
Like the light in the dark
We now know where to look

The Ebb and Flow

Like the ebb and flow
Confidence comes and goes
No matter what goes on
Sometimes it's just low

Yet I know myself
My values and principles
They keep me grounded
Or elevate when needed

Become the moon
Of your life's tide
Make sure to pull
Yet sometimes to push

The Real World

Are my thoughts real
Do they match reality
Sourced from my mind
Distorted by personality

How objective can one be
When all that they see
Brought via a screen
No one to be free

Return to nature
Lock your mind there
For it shows you the world
As its beauty feels

Lust

Filled with expectations
Wants and desires prevail
The strong irrational lust
Forever on display

Can this be tempered
Their shackles removed
To be full of gratitude
Living in the now

Those with little
Can out smile the rest
They find joy in the self
Not in the external

Learn the Signs

Signs on the wall
Can't always be read
The right time is needed
For your mind to see them

We will follow others
Which fill us with doubts
Knowing they're not perfect
Yet progress is made

Life is about moving
Acting in the now
Making mistakes
Learn the signs

The Preferred Now

The anticipation
A foreshadowed event
The energy stored in waiting
Filled with uncertainty

The future is unrealized
A perpetual possibility
Unlimited options
None final

This is my preference
My choice to be
However likely
The next now

Your Compass

There's a voice
Our inner guide
To show us the way
Reveal our true self

Yet we get distracted
Too much noise around
Unable to tap into the soul
Find our essence within

You hold your compass
Make sure you can read it
Take some to understand
Where the needle points

Pages of Life

What is the story you tell
Close to your the end
Flickering the pages
Of your book of life

Will you like what you read
Are some chapters gone
Other never happened
Empty pages of regret

Read some segments
As you write the rest
To keep on filling
The paper of life

Life's Nature

A stranger in the world
Lost among the known
Misunderstood by all
Baffled by their acts

Where is the aim
What is their purpose
Distracted by the superfluous
Taking it all for granted

Find the source
The first principles
What makes life great
It's true nature

The Ego's Rhythm

How the circles interact
Sphere shaped egos
Inflated full of air
Unable to find their space

Our bubbles breathe
Move with the tides
As the mind pulls
Or pushed away

Flow with the rhythm
Sense your thoughts go
Release them when you can
But connected to the core

The Unknown Self

How many masks
Do you have to wear
To finally feel secure
Able to reveal yourself

Do you keep them on
Looking in the mirror
That false reflection
The perpetual lie

Will you not take them off
The layers of insecurity
To once see yourself
Who you truly are

Spark

On a crossroad
There I find myself
Uncertain on the way
But it's mine to pick

Deep within I listen
Where my spark is found
A direct link to my nature
For this is my voice

The choices we make
From the knowledge we have
Are the best in the moment
If they come from the soul

The Grand Why

The grand Why
The reason behind it all
What is the meaning of this
Why are you who you are

Power in simplicity
Often unanswerable
Perhaps none needed
As the next one is revealing

Discover the secret
Why a tree has leaves
Why the river flows
Why you are here

The Wolf's Pack

The lone wolf
Needs his pack
To share the lessons
Give support to the whole

During the solitude
He examines the self
Through the hardships
Finding his path

He will fit his role
Whether a leader or not
His value perceived by all
Inner strength from his Nature

Philosophy and Me

Life keeps moving
Even when we stand still
Waves of change happen
The arrow of time takes us

Be the observer
Find peace in learning
Driven by a Love of Wisdom
The good and bad become one

Be curious
Be grateful
Be present
Be yourself

Be Philosophy
