Being grateful for whatever experience
Of this moment is doesn’t mean you must give in
To the constant mind chatter. Your acknowledgement
Of your feeling of unhappiness may prevent
It from growing. The only way you can begin
To feel better is by doing what makes good sense.
It makes no sense to ruminate. That only keeps
You locked into your fogginess, so gratefulness
In the moment is difficult. Change your mindset
To one in which the feeling cannot be a threat.
The ill thoughts you keep thinking lead to no access
To the key that will ultimately help you heaps.
Allow it to exist. It takes not a whole lot
Of your mental energy to just let it be
Something that you are feeling. This one simple thing
Will reduce ninety percent of your suffering.
Logic dictates that because it is already,
Accepting its existence is all that you’ve got.
Reconnect with your joy. Sometimes letting things go
That you’ve been collecting helps you to realize
The few things that you value above all the rest.
Your mind and your circumstance can both be addressed
By your knowing that it’s a blessing in disguise.
Let your sorrow upon you a blessing bestow.
