Ad Hoc Lives

By Tony DeLorger © 2013

Entitled to all I want in this world,

I pursue my goals,

for the universe wants not my demise,

and cares not for my aspirations,

rather the mere observation of my path,

whether unencumbered

or fraught with contentious opposition.

What 'is' ensues regardless of us,

regardless of our power and influence,

our dreams, success or failure,

and in natural balance does our lives unfold,

circumstance created by our acceptance

or rejection of that balance,

and so we exist.

So centered we are on the self,

we rarely observe and appreciate

the world in which we exist,

its marvels, its natural order

and its harsh response to imbalance,

both physically and mentally,

in a synergy of outcomes.

The physical and mental worlds

are governed by the same order and process of balance,

an 'equal and opposite reaction',

so just as the earth responds to our poisons,

our negative thinking carries consequence,

and we, for the most part, remain ignorant,

at the mercy of our own inadequate understanding.

We are the sum of our capability,

both positive and negative,

and how we respond to the world creates circumstance,

which is the definitive influence

on the course of our lives, our experiences, good and bad,

and the more we respect and adhere to balance,

the more our lives resemble what we actually want.

There are certain tools in life that can transform your experience, and understanding balance and the ramifications of your actions and words, will allow your life to flourish so you can experience what you want, rather than the consequences of ill-conceived thoughts and actions.
