For the Sake of Goodness






Let's just say that you have made a decision to fine tune yourself. It's an interesting thought and worth contemplation. Right?

For me I find that simplicity and ease of approach works best on all desires of change.
 I recently read a mind set that resonates with me. It keeps things simple, clean and avoids struggle. If  I have the thought   "I need to lose weight"  suddenly a feeling comes over me of all the failures and of an overwhelming process of  regarding how to do it. Its like a wall. But if I think " I like the idea of losing weight" it has no expectations, no pressure, no attached dread. Its a simple thought that resonates and sets your intentions flowing with goodness.
 
Physically and emotionally you can shift to goodness with a simple thought as you go through each movement of intent and each analytical journey.

If a life long friend that you care for deeply ends your friendship. You can decide how much of your time you want to allow the situation to stomp through heart and emotions. After that allotted time let it go and then pause with each temptation to return to it ask yourself " How is this creating goodness in my life? "

If you are stuck in traffic and are in a hurry and feel yourself getting wound up.... " How is this going to add goodness to my life?" Is the inner growling going to improve the situation and your well being?

If you sit down to binge on food to the point of misery......"How is this going to create goodness in my life?

If you decide to sit in front of the TV all day and not do all the things that need to be done...."How is this going to create goodness in my life"

"I will do all things for my greater good" this is a very common phrase in the self help, enlightenment movement but its to heavy. It  has to many attachments to it and sends your expectations fly over vast prairies into the great beyond.

"How is this going to create goodness in my life ? " this is a straight path to the immediate thought that has decided to randomly show up in your thinking repeatedly. Its a simple clean perspective to what you are about to spend the next few minutes doing with your time.

How is being angry at my boss going to create goodness in my life?
How is flared up anger in traffic going to create goodness in  my life?
How is telling this lie going to create goodness in  my life?
How is betraying a trust going to create goodness in my life?
How is making someones  business your own going to create goodness in your life?
How is deceiving someone going to add goodness to your life.
How is smoking, drinking, gambling, gluttony, and mood altering drugs adding goodness to you life?

Ah..some very hard things to try and adjust with just a simple thought.
But, " I like the idea of goodness in my life"

When I lay down only with what is inside of me there is nothing to cover up with.

You keep me living in the dark part of the neighborhood.

No sweet smells drifting through the air.

No melodies.

Nothing that matters.

No one who cares.

A Morsel at the Time

He fed me sweet morsels, like vanilla cake that melted in my mouth and nourished my  cravings and always left me longing for more.
 I followed his trail of sweetness and let it lure me in.
Each sweet indulgence from him was a precise and planned intent; a conditioning, a priming for his ultimate destination.
In the end I was left without a morsel of dignity.

Standing on the Edge

I was standing on a cliff with my toes hanging over the edge.
He walked up beside me.
We stood there in comfort and ease.

I stopped looking down  and looked up
at the horizon. I saw beautiful colors, birds happily flying
and felt a warm glow from the sun.

He placed his hand on the small of my back and
said " no one will  ever love you like you want to be loved."
Then he pushed me off the cliff with no regret.

He was truthful and merciful.

A Faint Whisper

When you left it was like a whisper that I faintly heard.
I caught the smallest of a glimpse of you
just as you flew away.
I never tried to seek you out to some how pull you in.

I started sleeping on your side of the bed. Somehow it seemed the right thing
to do. I filled up the space where you once belonged. I filled it with my being
that is like a whisper that I faintly hear.
