Make No Assumptions

Doubtful Moment

He loves you therefore he should know just how you feel
Regarding any subject. He can’t read your mind
Nor can he know your feelings without your sharing
Them with him. Don’t assume that because he’s caring
He knows everything. Don’t be selfish and unkind.
Don’t put someone you say you love through this ordeal.

Have the courage to ask questions if you don’t know
What is happening. Don’t assume everybody
Thinks the same way that you do because most do not.
How you think about things doesn’t matter a lot
To most people unless you just happen to be
Someone popular with an enormous ego.

All sadness and drama are rooted in making
Assumptions and in taking things personally.
We knew nothing when we were born then we became
Inundated with facts with the primary aim
Of indoctrinating us to reality
As we know it. So much of it is heartbreaking.

Allow yourself to hear people. Be more present
In the moment. Don’t take things where they need not go.
The mind operates like an assuming machine.
It can put you unfortunately in between
A rock and a hard place and unable to grow.
Keep yourself away from such a predicament.

From Fear To Curiosity

Curious Child

If you want to escape from your cage you must die
While you’re still alive. This means you must change your whole
Way of looking at life. The great master follows
His own nature and not all the folly that goes
Along with life. Your freedom is your only goal
And your own heart is the one you must satisfy.

A person who is truly good isn’t aware
Of his goodness. He tends not to accumulate
Anything but instead will give everything to
Everyone else. His kindness and wisdom are true
To his nature. He has learned to appreciate
All of life. Only love a good person will share.

The more one gives the more one receives in return.
That should never be the reason for being kind.
Kindness comes with the wisdom of feeling complete
In oneself. It becomes habitual to treat
Everyone kindly. One lives with true peace of mind.
No divisions among people does one discern.

When pursuing your passion keep kindness in mind
And in heart and let fear be a thing of the past.
Your can move From your Fear To Curiosity
When you see your life as an opportunity.
You were meant to feel good sorting through the contrast.
That humanity is interesting you’ll find.

Giving In To Your Power

Triumph

Sometimes words can put you back into alignment
When you’re not. You can give up the struggle and say
Things like, “It is what it is. I give up control
Of this tough situation. It’s only my goal
To be happy.”
When you talk to yourself this way

You can alleviate much of your discontent.

Many momentum building statements you can use
To uplift yourself. “Things are always working out
For me”
isn’t the best one you could use right now

But from where you are find something that will allow
Your own power to find you. There are without doubt
Many good affirmations from which you can choose.

“I give into my goodness. I give up the pain
And the struggle. I give into my worthiness.
I give into not caring what others may say
About me. In my state of alignment I’ll stay.
Into the probability of happiness
I surrender. I know I’ll have so much to gain.”

Talk yourself into your power. Feel easier
About life. Happiness is your primary goal.
Let the earth spin in its orbit. Let your heart beat
Through the night on its own and be willing to treat
Yourself and others kinder. It will make you whole.
Nothing keeps you from living the life you prefer.

Negative People

Bad Emotions

Negative People bug me. Their harsh energy
Is upsetting and dangerous. What can I do?
Should I say nothing to them? Should I stay away
From them altogether? Do I accept that they
Have a right to their feelings? How do I get through
Having to be around them perpetually?

I should be stable enough that I don’t need the
Condition to be perfect in order to be
In alignment. There is such a freedom in that.
There’s no time for engaging in negative chat.
But, within the contrast, am I able to see
That the people that bug me are the same as me?

We’re all in this together. I have had my days
Of disaster because of my negative mood.
So, I can well relate to where they’re coming from.
Can I set an example and somehow become
The answer to their problems with my attitude?
Perhaps so. I can be helpful in many ways.

Negative emotion cannot be a bad thing.
It’s the starting point of the creative process.
I feel appreciation for its existence.
Through my disposition I can be of immense
Benefit to the circumstance. I acquiesce
And acknowledge what positive feelings can bring.

Other People’s Minds

Minding Areas Of Avoidance

Other People’s Minds chatter and so does my own.
I cannot make assumptions about what goes on
In their heads. I cannot read Other People’s Minds.
I will only come up with mistruths of all kinds.
Then profusely misguided conclusions are drawn.
In a world of confusion I’ll find myself thrown.

In my head I am mostly. Drama I create.
Taking things where they should not go causes me grief.
I assume everybody thinks just as I do
Then end up traveling down the wrong avenue.
If I make no assumptions I will find relief
From the duty that carries emotional weight.

Do I make assumptions because I am afraid
To ask questions of others for more clarity?
Going deeper, I can find the place in between
 My thoughts and inner silence. All that must come clean
Will do so, then the right answer must come to me.
I can benefit from a no chatter crusade.

All the sadness and drama I experience
Is rooted in assuming or in my taking
Things personally. It is far better that I
Leave the unknown unfettered rather than to try
To construct my own story. That would be breaking
A spiritual rule and that of commonsense.

The Sieves Of Judgement

Psychic Sifters of Truth

“There is someone among us who is unworthy,”
Said a young man to the old and wise Socrates.
“A disreputable person he is clearly.
When I tell you what he is doing you will see
That our group cannot tolerate folk such as these.
I’ve told you. You can take measures necessary.”

“Before I will do anything you must tell me
If what you say is true. Did you see it first hand?
Or is it only something that you overheard?”
Socrates asked the man who had only one word

Which was ‘No.’ “Then the sieve of truth it cannot stand,”
Said the wise one. “You may have to let this one be.”

“Will you tell me of something good or positive
About this man, or are you here to tell me things
About him that are nasty? If it’s the latter
Then it is best for you to ignore the matter.
The sieve of goodness cancels out your utterings.
Go about your own business and let the man live.”

 “What are you so excited about anyway?
Is it that necessary to come to tell me
Of this thing most upsetting?”
The man bowed in shame

And retracted his story which now seemed quite lame.
Before dispensing gossip will it pass freely
Through the three sieves of judgement? Take care what you say.
