A REALIGNMENT WITH SOUL
liquid gyroscope built into our body for its health,
but we don’t pay very much attention to its signals.
Actually we don’t listen at all.
We just go get a pill to fix things which is usually
an artificial bandage on the real problem –
being out of cynic (sync) with our bodies natural rhythm.
Cell phones use a gyroscope, airplanes have about a dozen in things
from it’s compass to autopilot.
And a yo-yo’s spinning motion gives it gyroscopic stability.
But the image I prefer is the regulating effect of gyroscopes on big cruise ships –
also called gyrostabilizers or stabilizers.
Here they help reduce the rolling and imbalance of a ship at sea.
When waves cause the ship to roll,
the motion automatically activates
the gyrostabilizers to right and steady the ship.
This is how our “internal gyroscope” helps steady,
stabilize and right us when we are off balance.
It activates our brains natural self-stabilizing reaction
by triggering mental defense mechanisms to put us back in balance
and in a state of
cognitive consonance vs. the off balance state of cognitive dissonance.
may my heart always be open to little
birds who are the secrets of living
whatever they sing is better than to know
and if men should not hear them men are old
and fearless and thirsty and supple
and even if it's sunday may i be wrong
for whenever men are right they are not young
and love yourself so more than truly
there's never been quite such a fool who could fail
pulling all the sky over him with one smile

In love-unity there's no old or new.
Everything is nothing.
God alone is.

There is an affection that covers the glory,

That happens with just a dot

Your hand and feet must move,

Being famous, or being a disgrace,
