Let Go Of The Past

'Happy Days' Sour With Time

The purest part of you never looks at the past
So when you do you’re going to feel resistance.
And your inner being will never forgive you
Because you cannot ever give it reason to.
Your strong need for forgiveness leaves you with no chance
Of ever feeling a wholesomeness that will last.

What you did was atrocious. You know that too well.
Not a day passes by where you don’t feel remorse
For what cannot be undone. The best part of you
Will not sanction your guilt even though it is true
That it’s hard to feel worthy. Do know that your source
Of direction can mitigate some of this hell.

There are two points of view that you can select from.
One involves inspiration which comes from within.
Motivation is the other. It’s trying to
Force your hijacked awareness to something that you
Would prefer. Only you can forgive your grave sin.
Only then are you able to recover some.

Forgiveness is your turning your attention to
Something that allows energy from the divine
To flow to you and through you. Keep looking ahead
Even though there are people who would wish you dead.
You’re not a despicable creature by design.
Dare to be forward looking in all that you do.

Negative Thought Removal

Remedy For The Common Mood

Negative thoughts are just thoughts. Don’t identify
Them as good ones and bad ones. They all are the same
In that I’m either conscious of them or I’m not.
It is in the subconscious where some become fraught
In the ways they affect me. Yet I cannot blame
Them for my bad behavior, though hard I may try.

Try not to think of monkeys for just a brief while.
The mere thought makes the mind but a monkey machine
Generating more monkeys than ever wanted.
The mind does amplify whatever it is fed.
So, to think not a negative thought is obscene
Because I cannot do it. It isn’t my style.

Understanding that my thoughts are not part of me
Is the key to becoming more fully aware
That my unconscious thinking can get out of hand.
It seduces me to places I hadn’t planned.
If I try to not think them I welcome despair.
This is quite a predicament as I can see.

So, what is the solution? Surely there must be
One that is most appropriate and effective.
Since the mind can’t digest well, it needs to be fed
Positive support by me. Today I’m not dead.
That’s of utmost importance. My will is to live.
Knowing not when life will end is just fine with me.
