The Battle Within

Divinity is found

Within you and I

But also ego

All humans have this battle within

Dark & light

Devil & angel

Ego & divine

Grow the divine fertile seeds with love & compassion

Acknowledge the ego

Bow to it

Feed it carefully

Feed it with understanding

Care for the darker side

For in caring for the dark we grow the light

Living Our Values.

Compassion begins with me

Peace begins with me

Love begins with me

How I talk

How I listen

How I eat

How I breathe

How I write

I must live my values in order to make the world a better place

I must practice faith that what I do matters in an infinite universe

May I.

May I show compassion

To even those who harm others

May I always seek peace

When others choose violence

May I be grateful

Even when life gets tough

May I seek forgiveness

Knowing its a gift to myself

May I choose love

When fear crosses my mind

May I choose freedom

Over security

May I always seek to understand others

Not judge

May I be in this present moment

Even when my mind drifts to the past or future

 

Chaos.

I can always find something wrong

Something to worry about

Complain about

My mind is gifted at causing my own suffering

Untrained & disobedient

It drifts from lane to lane

Speeding at 130mph down the highway

Out of control

Rarely grateful

Often a victim

Always right

All else is wrong

Happiness always found around the corner

Grand delusions of

Discipline, commitment, and focus

Today I can make an effort to pave this new path

If not now

Then when?
