That Inside Thing
You know, I don’t know if I would worry too much
about what’s going on in our subconscious minds.
And, I don’t think it wise to say
it’s god consciousness…
I am talking about that inside thing
in good conscience, of course.
down below that we can’t seem to grasp and
it might be better to look out that window
and watch the steam rise.
I mean, if life is so real,
then why don’t we know ourselves better?
In other words,
where’s that ‘I’ inside?
Now, I know that when I tell my wife she treats me too good
and that she should treat me like crap,
she knows it’s just old A_____E me
kiddin’ around as usual
with my dry sense of humor.
Women always know darned well
what your intention is.
So, I would say that
you have to have an intention,
and know it better than anyone
to get to where it is you want to go.
that you must keep foremost in your mind
what your intention is
where it is you intend on carrying on
with most of your time.
You can’t just wander around like an
ape about it.
You gotta’ try to figure out what you want
in life soon as you have
a teaching mind.
Just like a prayer…
it gets an answer.
for, it will be based upon priority
of those answered
You can do all those weird things with your mind
that they say to do in those books
that’s supposed to draw what you want to you
but, things just might not
work out the way they promise.
There are rules in this universe that can’t be broken,
although, there’s always a few exceptions
I will talk about later.
But, for now the best way to get what you want is in using
your best intention to receive it.
Yet, it is more than merely wanting something on a whim.
There is a lesson there, though.
and, not a good idea to take things too lightly.
You don’t want to screw your head all up
through someone’s book that’s filled with some hair-brained
theory based upon contemporary fad.
Now, this thing called ‘you and I’ is immaterial, yet I’m not so sure
those psychiatrists and psychologists have it exactly right about
the Id, Ego, and Subconscious mind.
Things could be a lot wilder than that
and most likely are.
you’ll see in the time it takes
for it’s head to rear itself…
Our consciousness is neither here nor there,
and if that be so, the subconscious resides
in a murk we can never get at.
that’s probably a good thing in itself
cause’ it wouldn’t be such a bright idea being awake and asleep
at the same time a-swingin’ on a vine
with so many trees comin’ straight at ya’.
I think we can agree on that one.
But, consciousness seems to come through ourselves,
these hairy bodies of ours
that along with some of us
include grasping tails.
I think there’s a lot more than meets the eye
behind what we see
in front of us
as we speak.
So, it is not as much ‘know thyself’
as it is
what your intentions are and what you are sincere
about that matters most.
Now, why things were made so complicated is not up to
me to figure out.
my job is to do something else
that I’ve just about readied myself to find.
But, we have to learn our lessons, because they are there
And, there’s no one there but you and me to learn them.
because, you are none the wiser
never learning from someone
who doesn’t know why he made a showing.
and, if there’s that inside thing, we sure
don’t know what that is.
The only thing we know is
that you and I are here
trying to do some thinkin’ and brew up a little
fun at it
until it’s time to
is what it’s
all cracked up to
cause’ god himself didn’t
confide in me
nor tell me
any of his
raise my status
to that of the divine.
