From the Heart

From the Heart
when we let the mind lead
so much can intercede
questions, comparisons
even to a western perspective
of someone american
the ego wants to reign
to control and refrain
from letting our feelings be real
wanting our sensory radar only to conceal
our very existence
when we lead from the heart
there are no distinctions
all are loved and acknowledged
there is a great inter-mixing
true to our oneness
the wholeness
of a humanity

Partial Arts

Partial Arts
partial arts
the arts of protection
symbolic, meaningful
and giving direction
when partial to
one choice over another
we employ our sensory arts
so all bases are covered
feeling and seeing
all aspects and perspectives
we are prepared to act
from a sensory directive
a choice may feel easy, natural
maybe too new to know
it might represent risk, an old pattern
or just the wrong way to go
when the knowing is instant
no hesitation exists
it is a guided decision
and its aliveness persists

Trust, Understanding and Knowing

Trust, Understanding and Knowing
trust, understanding and knowing
or is it knowing, understanding and trust
which comes first, what sequence
and is it important?
is trust built on our feelings
our experiences, consistencies?
do we own our beliefs, what we trust?
or is it something we have been told to believe?
is our understanding something permanent
unchanging, what we have learnt?
or is it always changing, being influenced
by new perspectives?
and that sense of knowingness
where does it come from?
is it truly ours
or something being substantiated
by a greater presence?
