Conquering Confusion

God is not the author of confusion
Where therefore does it begin?
How then can we alleviate it?
The word itself - confusion
Can be separated into two words
Con – meaning to deceive
Or the Spanish translation
Meaning with
Such is a paradox of sorts
Perhaps it is chronologically backwards
And the Spanish translation should come first
Which is to say
First we are with our desires
Settled in our hearts
As to that which is true
But somehow thereafter
We question ourselves
Become double minded
And thereby deceive ourselves
Allowing our doubts
To overshadow our desires
Or intermingle and coexist
With our desires
From this comes the fusion
The combining and merging
Of that which is true
And that which is false
Of that which we desire
And that which we do not

How then is a human
To differentiate between
Both desires and doubts
When they both arise from within?
Moreover which of the two
Should bear the most weight
Determine his or her fate
And course of action?
Which of the two
Produces the most satisfaction?

It seems desire
Is under girded by faith
Believing that the inner yearnings within
Can be fully satisfied time and time again
Doubt on the other hand
Is embedded in fear
Throwing caution to the wind
Throughout the year
Such a hesitation
Leads to vacillation
Tending toward a deviation
Resulting in a limitation
Leaving one’s self-esteem
Diminished by inner reservations

Such inner withdrawal and reservation
Continuously causes one to miss
Their divine visitation
Though within there is always meditation
In which the true self
The heart within
Ponders and fathoms personal exaltation
The uplifting of the inner self
The fulfilling of the inner desires
The igniting of one’s passion with fire

Sadly however
Most tend to be double minded
Seeking outside opinions
Rather than listening
To the still small voice within
That gives birth to dominion
Dominion over thoughts
Dominion over flesh
Dominion over external opinions
Enabling divine rest
Giving one zeal and zest
To be his or her best.
Such a rest of the soul
A peace within
Shuts out the world
And creates your world
As you know it
And would have it to be
Most however know nothing of the sort
They meander in the mud mentally
Stuck in second opinions
Questioning themselves
Overriding their inner impressions
And spontaneous expression
Is it any wonder
People go into depression
When they recoil
From authentic expression
Expression of oneself
Not living for another
Breaking forth into joy
Despite the resistance
Regardless of pain
Projecting themselves
Without disdain
Yet most are diminished
Deep within
Always looking
For someone to affirm them
Sadly however
Most cannot even
Affirm themselves
Is it any wonder therefore
That you are left out
Left feeling odd
Left feeling blue
Repeatedly not knowing
What you should do

As for me
I know it not
This dreadful evil
A soulish rot
For I fear not mistakes
Or human upheaval
I’ve learned to live
And let live too
I’ve learned to stand
And not to bow
No, never bow before
The altar of man
For you were created uniquely
By God’s own hand
Skeptics will come
Critics will go
Nevertheless all
Soon shall know
That this man was born
An original from conception
Passing through the womb
Without rejection
For I shall not fear
No matter what
I feel or hear
Because deep within
I can hear Him
The eternal Father
Who loves me dearly
And affirms me daily
To magnificently
Be me!
In me I rejoice
Made in God’s image
In me I celebrate
No need to deviate
For in God’s likeness
I was made
I am His will
On earth today
Therefore I am
And need not to be.
Therefore what I do
I do so happily
Not driven by ambition
Seeking some position
Yeah rather content
Complete in Christ
And He with me
From a position of victory
I stand amazed
As I work out my salvation
Each and every day
Making new discoveries
Seeing new manifestations
Of all for which I was designed
His creation
With the power to create
Create I do
Not concerned with the future
Each day is new
Even what seems to be a mis-step
With it does God surely make
Something profound
And always great

My Lord and Maker
The Great I AM
Was there through my past
And today holds my hand
Journeying with me
Into the future
Showing me that
Which is to come
Removing hesitation
So I can run
Though most do not
It bothers me not
I’m in His hands
Should I fall
He’ll hold me up
With such security
I erupt
Like a mighty volcano
As a calve from the stall
I shall go forth
Standing tall
My eyes in front of me
My but behind
Not bound to a memory
The future’s fortune I find
Surely I will achieve greatness
For the greater One is in me
Now this is the secret
Listen to me
Before you can become
You first must be
In that you’ll find
At that moment of time
Upon this rock of revelation
You will know for sure
And be without hesitation
The limits will be broken
The chains fall off your mind
Self awareness and authenticity
You will find
Then confusion will go
And you’ll live in the know
The knowings of God
The intuitive ability
The magic of heaven
For which He created thee
To flow
To marvel
To move in miracles
To rest
To realize
To not despise
Who you are
From whom you came
Never again
Your desires to tame
Awaken the lion
The conqueror within
Lay to rest confusion
It is a sin
A sin deeply rooted
In fear of man
A fear that cripples
Paralyzes and hinders
A soulish disease
Your life to tease
To rob you
From the ability to realize
Reality is near
Just beneath your eyes
It’s not without
Nor is it complex
Reality is in you
Now just relax.
