Perspective on a Positive Attitude

Updated on August 13, 2011

REFLECTIONS OF THE TRUE SELF

Based on the happenings in my personal life over most of the almost 51 years I have been on this Earth, I would say the major "life lesson" I have learned is this (as my motto states on my HubPages bio): "You create your Universe with your thoughts!" It's sort of strange in a way, because I don't really consider it a "life lesson", it's more of a "remembering who I really am" thing. I believe when we are born, we come to earth already "knowing" in the deepest part of our spirit, everything we need to know about who we truly are and the empowerment we were innately given before we were even born.

The journalings/poetry below were written over the years, based on my life and what was happening at the time. They were written from the spirit part of me, the "who I really am" part of me. My wish for all of us, everywhere, is to come to a place in our lives where we truly realize the deepest part of who we really are and that we chose to live that part of us in the most positive, rewarding, beneficial way that we can!

THE MIRROR IMAGE

The mirror image of myself is what I see in you.

The courage, strength and unending hope you have

To overcome the things you lived. In spite of all

The hurt and pain and all the tears you’ve cried,

I still have much faith in you; I too, have held

The pain inside.

When I look within your saddened eyes,

I see an image off me

And all the things I see in you are

Reflections of the real me.

I am not perfect nor do I know all things,

I just know the sense of peace I’ve felt

And I know what joy it brings.

The peace I’ve had when I’ve looked inside

And then looked out and around

And saw some others with the same hurts

And I told them what I’ve found.

I have inside, the strength to cope

And I’ve given up the need to know

Why life allows the hurts that it does

And I’ve also learned to let go

Of the never-ending broken heart

That I’ve kept shoved on a shelf

And I’m willing to see and know and believe

That you’re the mirror of myself.

THE ANSWER IS INSIDE

 

There’s an answer for the pain we feel inside,

For the hurt and sadness we sometimes cannot hide.

We must search our heart and find the strength within.

The answer is a Light that never dies,

A Voice that never lies,

And a Love that lasts

Beyond the end of time.

In everyone of us is the

Courage to overcome,

The Wisdom to understand

And Forgiveness for all the

Damage that’s been done.

There’s Compassion for those without

The means to live fulfilled

And a Faith strong enough to

Erase all of our doubt.

All of these gifts dwell deep within

Our soul.

They are there for the taking

If we so choose to be whole.

So, remember when you’re crying

And there’s no one else around,

Just look inside your heart.

That’s where the answer is found.

THE CIRCLE

To be aware is all that’s asked of humanity

For us to know there’s a purpose

In the very fact that we exist.

To speak our truth, to spread our light and

To know that, with the freedom of our individuality

Comes the responsibility of accepting one another as we are.

We all have a place on the circle of life.

We are precious and unique and at the same time,

We are reflections of one another.

Experiencing the lesson we learn in each day

Allows us to see we are personally responsible

For every choice we make.

It is Life’s purpose to show us that there is a GIFT

For us in all pain that enters our lives

IF we would only open our eyes and hearts to see it.

To be aware of our greatness and to choose evolution

And empowerment and integrity and love...

That is all that’s asked of those who stand

Within the circle of life.
