Feel Better Instantly

Joyful Innocence

We adults have our aliments, especially pain
That comes on rather suddenly causing distress.
We also have discomforts in the gut and chest.
Competition is fierce to provide what is best
To address our conditions as we acquiesce
To the real life of rigors and of constant strain.

There is not an emotion associated
With a feeling of stuckness within the body.
It’s just sluggish and present. It comes and it goes.
It is good that children do not suffer the woes
Of the unevolved adult who happens to be
The student in this instance. Much more can be said.

But this poem is finite in length. We can find
Relief from pain and discomfort most easily
By relaxing into it letting the mind drift
While thinking only thoughts that will soothe and uplift.
One can then ask the question, “Is this good for me?”
Coaxing oneself in this way is much more than kind.

Reaching for feelings of relief are we always…
From fear, hatred, revenge, anger, worry, and doubt…
And a half a mile other ways of resistance.
It’s good to be happy in any circumstance.
Being free like a child is what it’s all about.
Their example is certainly worthy of praise.

Feel Better Instantly

Capture The Moment

In my gut there’s some stuckness. My lungs, chest, and heart
Feel a little too heavy. Is there something wrong
With my processing of life? Is this atonement
For bad acts of the past? Does my body repent
Through its not feeling right? Does my asking prolong
The process of recovery? I’m not that smart.

I ask too many questions, so thank God for those
Who have knowledge sufficient. I’m not feeling pain
And I need not describe it with an emotion
Even though at its core there probably is one.
Psychoanalysis would mean that I’m insane.
Must I rely on everything everyone knows?

Relax into your pain. If you are lying down
Pretend that there is a big sponge underneath you.
Your pain will be drawn out, and the thoughts that you think
Should be simply uplifting and not on the brink
Of your sinking right back into your feeling blue.
Pain ignores the fact that you are wearing a frown.

Sensations of discomfort and deep unsettling
You are reaching relief from, and negative thought
Keeps you in the emotion of blame, doubt and fear.
Your relief from resistance comes when thoughts are clear.
Nothing else but your feeling better can be sought.
You are the perfect master of your wellbeing.

These Two Statements

Absolute Freedom In The Knowing

Consciousness is eternal. It has no escape
Into mythical nothingness. And it is true
That what you ask is given. Sometimes it may seem
That it’s not so because you have low self-esteem.
You are out of alignment with that part of you
That is always and ever in the best of shape.

Focusing on what’s negative, like constant pain
That has made the body an unwilling hostage,
Is so easy to do. It becomes a practice.
And the more it is done, it is hard to dismiss.
It’s a manifestation that you must engage
To the best of your feeling for maximum gain.

A vibration is activated within you
Whenever your attention to something is strong.
How you feel is a most blessed indicator
Of vibrational content. As you attune more
To how you feel in each moment, it can’t be long
Before you will be living a life that is new.

Things can only get better. Write down these statements:
You can’t get it wrong – and – You never get it done
Anything that is never done cannot be wrong.
If I had enough talent, I’d make this a song.
Practicing your allowing is not only fun.
It can also be used for poor mood abatements.
