A Full, Emotional, Enthusiastic Life (Cor.) - Poem by Margaret Alice Second

Composure and peace, inner calm,
restful, Lobsang Rampa says laying
down & repeating the words “peace,
peace” will bring about a feeling of
quiet and ease – but he obviously
did not address these to me

When my system reacts to allergens,
no amount of breathing & repeating
mantras takes the discomfort away,
it’s a sad fact that telepathy is rather
inaccessible to me since my brain is
the generator of explosive waves

Rampa’s ideas are already calming
me - but he doesn’t know the joy of
speeding in traffic, dodging taxis and
communicating with broad grins, it’s
true that equanimity makes life flow
smoother, yet passionate reactions

Add spice to an otherwise insipid
life, sending the astral body out at
night gadding about does not seem
essential to me, leaving the physical
body to fly around like fairies, would
lead to such shocked reactions

Seeing auras and auric lights around
people while having to keep quiet for
fear of generating hostility, would be
such a burden to me, I would rather
like to be a typical dreamer without
great metaphysical powers which

Would land me in bad confrontations;
it’s interesting to read what Lobsang
thinks of Western civilization - and I
agree, city life is uncivilized, but it’s
great if we have a sense of humour;
living a life of Eastern deprivation

For an afterlife is superfluous since it
is inevitable, we only get one chance
at physical life in an incarnation, never
again will there be an identical you or
me - even if the mind returns, it’s the
same as a unique snowflake – only

ONCE in all eternity will our persona
live in this situation, let’s concentrate
on living passionately, delighted with
all the challenges life offers us - we
shall soon enough end up in a new
dimension - until then, let’s live

A full, emotional, enthusiastic life!
