Thoughtless me learning my reality.. a poem.

I wondered as I sat in thought

Which thoughts were good

 and which were not

I believe as it should be

I create my own reality

I f I choose thoughts that make me feel

Those thoughts become quite real

If I choose to be sad

The thought that I thought

Perhaps was bad

As I thought filled with wonder

I need to choose thoughts

 that won’t drag me under

The thoughts about where I will be

Some say those thoughts

 are fantasy

I choose to think of who I am

A beautiful soul in the body of a man

As I open my eyes I see

A different perspective

A different me

As I choose the thoughts I follow

And those I let go

I stand full no longer hollow

I create my reality who I am

 and who I will be

As I become more  consciously aware

The more my ego

 fights with me

My ego doesn’t want to lose

My ego no longer gets to choose

As I begin to bloom

My ego senses it’s doom

The knowing I am

Just on a journey as a man

Lets me be all I can

99 ways they say to skin a cat

I happen to know

 there are more than that

I am aware of the energy

That created you and created me

It exists in all that we feel and see

We were born to be wild and free

To choose what we will be

Our place in our world and our galaxy

My ego is my cherished friend

It taught me how to live again

I love it as I watch it cry

Love it as I watch it die

I am aware of how it feels

As I embrace what is real

I watch in wonder my thoughts

Letting them go and missing them not

I chose to share a thought or two, I listen to the words of many a guru many who seem to say you can lose your ego in just a day and manifesting wealth is just like child’s play. I have been learning who I am for many years many smiles and many tears. Its funny as I listen to the many who know there path true and found in a single day or two. Its easier said than done to get past the hurdles in the path I journey on. My ego was grown in a place where material things and how you look is how we are judged what I was taught to desire as well as what success was. I was also taught to be poor and kind was the way to get into the world of the divine.

I have learned to have a better view of what I thought was true. The truth is inside of me all I had to do was love and set my ego free. I wish to thank the many who share that with me. Many there are through out time who have expressed that we should observe whats on our minds by observing them inner peace we find. I am not my thoughts I choose to let them control me not, If I am the master of them then I am consciously aware of who I can be  and who I am.

I thank you for stopping by and allowing me to share a thought or two of my observances and expressing what I am seeing as I learn and grow. I hope you found a smile while you were here I know you brought me one by stopping by. Thank you for being the change positive and sharing your smiles and your love making our world a better place for all we share it with. 🙂 Joe
