Bits Of Wisdom

Printed Information

Hiding from your problems won’t make them disappear.
Working through them is the only way you can grow.
Being true to yourself may lead to loneliness
But it’s worth it. Growth’s often a painful process
But it need not be. If you just go with the flow
Then an answer to your dilemma becomes clear.

Stop being so available to people who
Are there for you only when it is convenient
For them. You learn a lot about people when they
Don’t get what they want from you. A high price you pay
For trying to please everyone. You will resent
Having done so. They don’t recognize all you do.

Being honest may not get you many friends but
It’ll always get you the right ones. You cannot
Heal in the same environment where you got sick.
Be especially careful of the friends you pick.
Those who will support you when you’re in a tough spot
Are the best because their intentions are clear-cut.

You do harm to your self-confidence when you break
Promises you make to yourself time and again.
Let the improvement of yourself keep you busy
So much that there’s no time for negativity.
All the things that you want can happen for you when
The decision to feel over the moon you make.

Mindfulness Thoughts

All That Is

Mind is the forerunner of all things. Out of mind
Are created the many things that we believe
Are important. All human made things start as thoughts.
Often times though the mind may get tied up in knots
As you live your life. What you most want to achieve
Is a balance where with your nature you’re aligned.

When you sit quietly and pay close attention
To your breathing, a river of thought enters in.
The mind secretes thoughts the way the salivary
Glands secret saliva, but don’t let them carry
Any weight. Just keep breathing and you will begin
To lose thought and enter another dimension.

If you could hear the thoughts of someone next to you,
You would get away quickly. You’d think they were ill
In the psyche, but everyone’s experience
Is the same. Mental chatter gets really intense
Normally. It’s like a puppy that can’t sit still.
Yet you seldom think of anything that is new.

It’s like you’re stuck in a motel room late at night.
You can’t sleep so the TV becomes a plaything
But you can’t change the channel. So old thoughts remain
In you mind. It may feel like you’re going insane.
Mindfulness though is capable of offering
Lasting peace and a heck of a lot more insight.
