You want to kill’em. You WILL
diet. Time to pay your bills and be more responsible. Before
each decision or commitment: A motive. Always. And what precedes
this? A complex ‘stirring’ of experiences and attitudes. You
were betrayed!! Find the poison. Can’t fit into your clothing.
Starve yourself. Phone calls threatening to cut off ‘services’.
Find another job. A never ending array of challenges and
tribulations confront you daily. So … is there a ‘means’ to
effectively deal with them? With confidence? Most of the time?
What ‘moves’ you to ‘act’ … either mentally or physically is
predicated on your perceptions and reactions. And these are
determined by your state of mind, your ‘needs’ and ‘desires’ and
your ‘strength’ or dearth of empathy and caring. Your emotions
can incite you. Often a mistake … even disastrous. Have another
drink … relaxes you … you become more sociable. Do you give
money to the beggar? How much?
You try to keep your life simple … not always easy. Deciding is
often daunting. However, there is a YOU at the helm … in a
‘quiet, unassailable ‘cabin’ ‘peeking out’ taking it ‘all’ in.
YOU the “Captain of your fate.” And throughout your ‘voyage’ YOU
have been nurturing ‘character’, a sense of responsibility and
compassion … a dedication to virtues predicated on love. Your
choices are ‘correct’ … positive because of your steady faith
and reliance on an Inner Voice ALWAYS whispering “you care” …
you truly care for yourself and the world around you. You never
relent on doing what is considerate and supportive … to all
beings, to all of creation. And while exercising your astounding
ability to will you can ‘reflect’ and ponder. You have
experience. You rely on a moral code for direction. You have
complete confidence in your motives. For you are guided by the
only true Power in the universe: The Power to love.
And when the tyrants of bodily functions, ego exalting,
territorial defenses, primitive power drives and condescension’s
towards others ‘bludgeon’ you with crass admonitions to do what
is best for you and invectives denouncing others as ‘lesser’ …
remember … LOVING IS FOREVER. Nothing else. So constantly renew
your efforts. You will know how well you are doing by what is
