Art cortesy of Lorraine Ayre

People, we are something wild
An animal basic in instincts
maybe we’re doomed, maybe we’re blessed
by reason expressed as the intellect

Here we come to observe
mirrors we are to all others
studying the still mind within
is worthwhile the effort of knowing

People get agitated
demons confusing alive
in seeing things as they are
love and compassion arises

People serve people blind fate
or people serve people in giving
some people glow as they serve
some crave to be best as they’re serving

Competition feeds envy at the end
jealousy,  anger and hatred
animosity is negative waves
all madness arising and passing

Impermanence in all that it is
sensations passing after arising
happiness is bound to become
in awareness and equanimous timing

Modesty is most precious tool
the way of the heart into harmony
simplicity and clarity sooth
judgment only does harming

People don’t like to be told what to do
People don’t like to be exposed in their weakness
Everybody wants to be first
No one learns in somebody else
but the story is still worth understanding

The ultimate truth is the law
a natural law for the people
no matter who is the people you are
change is the only sure thing that will find you

    Beautiful! "Judgment only does harming….." was a touchdown for me. I think we, as social human beings, judge ourselves the most (the inner critic that barely ever sleeps); this is where the deepest wound lays. Working on cultivating inner kindness and compassion towards oneself eliminates fear which arises first every time that we are tempted to judge another. I'm speaking from personal experience here…. May we all dwell in infinite love and compassion! :)
