If you understand others you are very smart


This is a poem I came across and I loved the title.

 

If you understand others you are smart,

If you understand yourself you are illuminated

If you overcome others you are powerful.

If you overcome yourself you have strength

If you know how to be satisfied you are rich.

If you can act with vigor, you have a will.

If you don’t lose your objectives you can be long-lasting.

If you die without loss, you are eternal.

Wow! I may be half there.

 

Let Your Stream Flow

The old saying, Just go with the flow.”

is truer than you’ll ever know.

When your energy is directed

distinctly and with a purpose perfected

a cosmic river flows from within

swirling, sparkling, and vivacious

to where nobody knows.

The mind stitches the intricate designs

that form the habits of the mind

to love and harmonize

and make all dreams

come true

And then your soul

sends out a signal

to let your stream flow freely

creatively and orderly

connecting to the universe

like a giant magnet

attracting only

what is positive

Let your stream flow

and expect only the best

Let your stream flow

Just put it to the test
