Great-Grandparents of a current outcome
The total grand aggregate sum
Of all our thoughts, words and deeds
Create what we believe we believe.
If what you’re getting isn’t what you hanker for
Begin to be aware of what considerations came before,
Your after, and the underlying shadow deliberation
Beneath the silhouette of your deeper contemplation.

Do we cause and get what we get
Or expect and get what we really expect?
Are we the unknowing victim of our own dis-ease
Trapped in a world of self generated make believe
Comfortable with unsubstantiated feeling distortions
Blinded by contradictions and generational falsifications?
Is there a chance to escape our current miseries,
When focused on fear, uncertainty and anxieties?

Start by remembering who you “Really” are!
Begin by raising your meta-physical consciousness bar,
And be the one whose imaginative thoughts today,
Stirred by intention, focus and energy on display,
Match the outcomes you yearn for and desire.
Forerunners of future lineages that you’ll inspire!
