How can I enhance my ability to find
And maintain my alignment? I have momentum
From the past that disturbs me. My thankfulness for
A good upbringing generates guilt from the core
Of my being because of the mess I’ve become.
It is natural that to myself I’m unkind.
So, I speak of alignment and those kinds of things
That I got from some teachings. A stab in the dark
It is for me to take upon this endeavor.
I would keep doing this if I lived forever.
Though I don’t have my heart set on making a mark
On this world. I’m detached from its vast happenings.
By trusting in the process and trying much less,
I can then feel relief and the sense that things are
Working out. I need to stop regurgitating
How things are. Effort won’t accomplish anything
But delay and obstruction. I’m not very far
From achieving a long-awaited happiness.
I get far out ahead of myself, believing
That I have to get out there and make things happen.
In this attraction based universe there is not
Assertion. My thoughts and feelings matter a lot.
I can make good things happen all over again
By getting myself in the mood of receiving.
