THOM THE WORLD POET: The Daily Poem

"Thom the World poet is an old mate of mine from way back in my history. Even pre-dating Voiceprint, when I was running "Otter Songs" and Thom's poetry tapes and guest appearances with Daevid Allen, Gilli Smyth and Mother Gong are well known and highly regarded. It just felt right to include a daily poem from Thom on our Gonzo blog and when I approached him to do so, he replied within seconds!!! Thom is a great talent and just wants to spread poetry, light and positive energy across the globe. If we at Gonzo can help him do that - why not?"

WATCHING A DOCUMENTARY ON VAUDEVILLE
a staged miracle during a Great Depression
which is no longer in evidence
even with millions unemployed
and many simply dying (most still elders)
it occurred to me=THIS ENTIRE CULTURE IS GONE!
Same revelation when watching the newly colorized GREAT WAR
Every single person in every frame has passed from us
Now i do not know if this will be a GREAT PANDEMIC
nor if the casualty lists will topple TWO WORLD WARS
or the economics beat THE GREAT DEPRESSION
But shards of that culture still lodge in my brain
Stories of Depression glassware @auction
Newspaper wallpaper and stuffed in holey shoes
None of us aware of how GREAT PUBLIC WORKS
solved both poverty and despair.Songs of that time were cheerful and bright.
Musicals prospered.Soup kitchens and community co-operation
When one's private world is tyranny,remind oneself of the transitory-
how Mussolini died,and Hitler-even when their Fascism and Nazism
resurrected in the households of our time.This is why statues must change,
and accountability for personal and collective violence becomes a theme for 2020.
Even when we know-the children of our times-may not have seen any of these-documentaries

AS WE ARE STILL LEARNING

Steam train to hyperlinks.Quantum healing to ancient wounds.
Cloth bandages in a  disposable world.Grief and loss and tears.
Those departed and departing.Their attitudes/acceptance.
Those in Rest Homes with no visitors.Writers with no audience.
Now you begin to notice-miracles (small)surrounding you.
Drink mornings in as elixir and as tonic.Sleep deep siestas.
Wake moon changes and star pilgrimages.Loss changes clothes
and becomes chameleon.You transform into mutating Being.
All verbs and participles over dull nouns and personal pronouns.
Your life sentences no more clauses-more exclamation marks
Excitement!Exhilaration!Energies!Elastic now your time span
bridging moments you once regarded as isolates.You are One
and @One.Rivers run through you.FLOW WITH THIS!(it will sustain you..

A Change in Values

"The most fundamental aggression to ourselves, the most fundamental harm we can do to ourselves, is to remain ignorant by not having the courage and the respect to look at ourselves honestly and gently." ~ Pema Chödrön

That's when I realized that I had to do something. My mother did a lot extraordinary things for others. Hundreds of people showed up to her funeral and said the same thing: 

"She did so much for me. She cooked all my favorite foods." 

So much of Mom's life was about doing things for others and keeping them happy, but she sacrificed her own needs in the process.

I had subconsciously imbibed my Mom's values.


1. Gratitude Prayer

Instead of wasting my time thinking about the pain of who didn't show up during my family's critical moments, I started focusing on those who were around. 

People went out of their way to support my family and me. 

By focusing on the positive and bowing my head with gratitude, my life started to feel fuller and enriched.


2. Adjust Your Attitude & Expectations

Truth is: people will disappoint.

Truth is: we have all disappointed someone.

Truth is: when we do things for others, we shouldn't have expectations attached to them. You can't change people but you can change your attitude.


3. Learn to Say No

If others take us for granted, we have allowed them to do so. 



I grew up in a giving and nurturing family.

Over-extending and ignoring my own needs, and that's the way I knew how to love and give attention. Being able to say "no" in the right situation can be empowering. 

You start to respect yourself more.


4. Practice Self-care

It's important to ask yourself what you need. I need 7 hours of sleep and some alone time every day to reflect. I am a better and more compassionate person. 

Also, I don't like wasting my time with dishonest and self-centered relationships.

Because I am passionate and authenticity is extremely important to me, the negative conversations stay with me. 

So, to the extent possible, I remain mindful of whom I surround myself with.


5. Build Boundaries

We don't always get to pick who stays in our life. Also, a lot of us are uncomfortable with being mean. 

But, we always have the option of not allowing certain people into our inner space. 

Add some distance. You have to protect yourself and your magic.


6. Practice Forgiveness

The Yoga Sutras say that to deal with difficult people, you needn't accept their behavior. 

But by forgiving and detaching from them, we stop obsessing about their behavior.

Doing so creates space for you in your life. 

Think of it, why should any of us waste our precious life thinking about those who hurt us?


7. Let Go

Some relationships are not meant to be. Stop chasing people. 

Stop trying to win the affection of those who emotionally exhaust you. Stop adding intention to other people's actions. 

Once you let go, you automatically start to acknowledge all the good in your life. So much of what we become is what our mind tells us, right?


8. Stop Victimizing Yourself

We are responsible for our lives. Don't blame others when things go wrong. Don't assume the world owes you anything. 

Look inward for strength and you'll be amazed. 

We are a lot stronger and more capable than we allow ourselves to believe.

...BECAUSE SOME OF US THINK THAT THIS STUFF IS IMPORTANT
What happens when you mix what is - arguably - the world's most interesting record company, with an anarchist manic-depressive rock music historian polymath, and a method of dissemination which means that a daily rock-music magazine can be almost instantaneous?

Most of this blog is related in some way to the music, books and films produced by Gonzo Multimedia, but the editor has a grasshopper mind and so also writes about all sorts of cultural issues which interest him, and which he hopes will interest you as well.
