Mind, Body, and Spirit


Joseph Machney

 

 

In our heads most of the time

 

The world outside the body resigns

 

Our heart beats in time to the rhyme

 

Of Mother Earth’s silent chimes

 

 

 

The unheard words so loud to speak

 

Yet guides the world mostly unseen

 

The man made noise makes us weak

 

For us light-guided it all feels mean

 

 

 

Yet here we are, we’ve come to this

 

The great awakening we won’t miss

 

So many centuries so many lives

 

So many husbands so many wives

 

 

 

As the history attempts to be retold

 

The lies happening can be undone

 

What truly was in the days of old?

 

What has occurred under the sun?

 

 

 

What they want you to see

 

Doesn’t let your spirit be free

 

Distractions are truly everywhere

 

And we are asked to always care

 

 

 

So much energy and time goes away

 

Never is there time to rest, to play

 

Are we to see wrong from right?

 

The lens, not our own, a new insight

 

 

 

The quieter dimensions that are us

 

Never seen nor taught to trust

 

The breaking of a system, to crumble

 

The collective pain a loud rumble

 

 

 

The body, the foundation takes it all

 

The weight of more dreadful news

 

The more you know, you feel so tall

 

Not able to see the distorted views

 

 

 

The world you live a deeper enslave

 

This is not the news not all the rave

 

As we collectively sit within a cage

 

And wonder why there is such rage

 

 

 

Quietly guided by an undertow

 

That leaves us wanting to know

 

We think we know a lot

 

Yet somehow have forgot

 

 

 

The molding of our minds is deep

 

And we wonder why we can’t sleep

 

Still a slumber we have truly been in

 

If we think we’ve lived a life of sin

 

 

 

Another level of a controlled mind

 

In truth we’ve only missed the mark

 

As a result our outlook seems dark

 

How to leave our mindset behind?

 

 

 

How do these ways really serve us?

 

Stop please and let me off the bus!

 

The herd mentality I will not conform

 

Yet here I am , here I was born

 

 

 

A lonely path , at times so torn

 

Let artistic beauty pave the way

 

No boundaries or borders, a new day

 

A clarion call, a triumphant horn

 

 

 

Love is this the feminine wild

 

Unbounded like a small child

 

Connection to Mother Earth

 

This is the rebirth

 

 

 

How have you been taught to see?

 

Stand up and shout this is not me!

 

Break the shackles that you built

 

Grab your sword by the hilt

 

 

 

And cut the BS you thought was real

 

Out of your life and the one before

 

Realize that you are so much more

 

Promise yourself to make a new deal

 

 

 

Question what are your beliefs

 

Take a page from indigenous chiefs

 

There wisdoms and connected ways

 

Are so much needed these days

 

 

 

No longer can we see them as less

 

To see all as equals this is the test

 

Until that day truly arrives

 

How can this be our lives?

 

 

 

You do you and I’ll do me

 

That is the mindset of the free

 

Mind, body and spirit

 

Can you actually hear it?

 

 

 

Within we are all the same

 

No one has been named

 

No identity , only light

 

Seeing this will make things right

 

 

 

Again can we let go of who we are?

 

So much we don’t need to know

 

Just let our spirit be free, just let go

 

Soar finally like a shooting star

 

 

 

The density of this year

 

Does not need to be for you

 

Pause and wait to clear

 

In that moment there’s nothing to do

 

 

 

That is when the guidance comes in

 

Let it flow always from within

 

As your way becomes known

 

A new way will be shown

 

 

 

Let the world stand aside

 

As you triumphantly ride

 

The waves of transformation

 

Another mind vacation

 

 

 

As you sigh in relief

 

You realize , good grief!

 

What lessons I’ve learned

 

Bridges I needed to burn

 

 

 

A picture comes into view

 

Another awakening is due

 

To form a more complete you

 

You’ll not find this standing in a pew

 

 

 

In nature you begin to seek

 

Atop perhaps a mountain peak

 

Where there is quiet for you inside

 

Let this in your heart’s request abide

 

 

 

Listening to what it has to say

 

Do not push this guidance away

 

Rest with this personal path

 

Let it be like a cleansing bath

 

 

 

Time and again this is the true way

 

Let the many distractions stay

 

In the shadows where they belong

 

All is a lesson, nothing is wrong

 

 

 

To close this with a loving thought

 

This peace of mind can’t be taught

 

The box that you find yourself in

 

Perhaps too long you have been?

 

 

 

Who does this outlook actually serve

 

And is it true that you do deserve

 

A life of light and love and peace

 

Build a new foundation underneath

 

 

 

Unlearn, unlearn and finally let go

 

Stop the acting stop the show

 

Play the star in your own unique role

 

No matter the audience, be yourself
