Does my soul create contrast to show me the way
That my choices keep up well with what I expect?
I take value in contrast when I make it so
But when my inner self does it, I’d better know
That it is much the wiser and deserves respect.
It and I weave a life pattern of every day.
My soul will show me contrast when I feel my best.
That is when I am open to infinite grace.
Then life seems but a puzzle, bright colored and smooth
Where there’s always a kind soul to comfort and soothe.
Though it may seem to others I’m in an odd place,
I remain true to myself and don’t become stressed.
My soul can show me contrast through disconnection
From who it wants to show me who’s running my show.
I am not balled up in it for weeks upon end.
If I get hot and bothered, I’ll talk to a friend –
One who knows, overall, contrast is how we grow
Into well-tempered beings addicted to fun.
