Do One Simple Thing

Changing Life's Story

In the moment one recognizes a desire
There are two simultaneous acknowledgements.
One is having that something. The other is not.
People put their focus on the latter a lot.
When this happens it brings on the worst of events.
This duplicity about things does life require.

The balance of the universe lies though therein.
All creation is twofold. Each has within it
The potential of the thing not manifesting
And, of course, the good feeling that having does bring.
Knowing which is the better requires not much wit
And to choose to feel bad is a terrible sin.

I add to one side or the other through the day
As my thoughts become random and infiltrating
Which do I want to focus on? That is easy,
But I act to my detriment unconsciously.
I can pay attention to what makes my heart sing,
Then to negative emotion I won’t fall prey.

I’ll acknowledge the positive aspects always
As my life keeps unfolding. It opens the door
To every opportunity. Doors remain closed
If I keep on thinking the thoughts that are opposed
To the thing that I want more than ever before.
I can change my life story to one of some praise.

Appreciation

The Ultimate Morning Prayer

The good night was refreshing, and bright is this day.
I have the understanding that everything’s fine.
This earth is spinning in perfect proximity
To the other planets, and I’m happy to be
Of the notion it’s all managed by the divine.
I know that I know that it should be just this way.

I’m living in a vibrational universe,
And I’m exhilarated that I understand
What I’m getting and what I’m thinking and feeling
Are a match in vibration. This is appealing
To the deepest part of me. I’m part of a grand
Mechanism of goodness. Nothing could get worse.

Nothing is more important than that I look for
What I’m wanting to see. There are many objects
Of attention available. I get to choose
Which ones are to my liking, and I can refuse
Anything that is not perfect in all respects
To the life that I’m living. Who could ask for more?

Everything in my life is about attracting.
Assertion has no meaning but disharmony.
All things then are appropriate as they exist.
There’s nothing about life that I need to resist.
Everything is unfolding most favorably.
I remain elevated ‘til this day is done.
