You can be joyful without having to pretend.
If you think that you must be, you’re trying too hard.
Separate the experience of feeling good
From the headache. If you do not feel as you should,
Don’t fake it, but be true to yourself with regard
To the difficult feeling you want to transcend.
You can have an emotional experience
That is totally different from how you feel
In your physical body by focusing on
Lovely things. With some practice, your pain could be gone
In a short while. The point is to feel as ideal
As you can in the moment. Is this making sense?
Diminish the percentage of airtime you give
To the visceral sensation by focusing
Upon other things that will invigorate you.
The alternative is that you will remain blue.
You will be surprised by what feeling good can bring.
People will be astonished by the life you live.
You’re a selective sifter which means you create
By sorting through the contrast. There are things that you
Find delightful but also things that need changing.
You must know that the universe is arranging
The cooperative components for your new
Way of feeling. To get there, you don’t have to wait.
