A Self-Help Poem

To love life, a gift from Creation
Is a duty we too easily forget
Misunderstood is the wonder
Lost in suffering, is the gratitude

But friendship with life, is so
Essential to finding beauty
Learning like a child, so fundamental
In our ability to appreciate circumstance

And paramount, in the capacity
Of limited creatures to choose free-will
And exercise their soul, in blossoms
Of experience, in honest affections

In pure becoming, that’s the philosophy
No trials can censure love out
There are these holy attractors
These metaphysical magnets of bliss

They are quantum fuel for the sensitive
Not only to be sensitive to suffering
But sensitive to virtue, open to kindness
Giving and receiving, without judgement

Participating in harmony spontaneously
God knows you are apt to enjoy suffering
But to make it a habit would be an absurdity
Make love the habit you base your life upon

To walk a golden path with a smile
To find your dreams on a sunlit assertion
That your life is what you believe it can be:
Life is a perception of how you reinforce the positive.

  1. So true. If we could only understand how much love translates into benefit for us and those around us! Though I think it is hard for people to love if they have only known suffering and negativity.

  2. “To find your dreams on a sunlit assertion” . . . That is so beautiful. .. . So beautiful. And Kate Houk is right on with her comment. We are, like all creatures, organisms rooted in habit, and not comfortable with change. Suffering and negativity is for most people their most familiar mental state and lifelong companion, so it’s difficult to steps away from their most familiar state of mind.
