As I watch mySelf while outside of me,
I see the scene more objectively.
Why did you say all of those things?
Is it the truth or rememberings
That make me sit and steam and stew?
Must I stay with this same point of view?
I think I'll change my reality
By quizzing my usual personality.
No, I will not stay this way.
I have the will to change today.
Just because it was before
Does not keep me from expecting more.
I must look long, I must look deep
To see me from another's seat.
I stand aside and watch me work,
Observing every style and quirk.
I see what nature brings to me
In people, places and internally.
I pick and choose what parts will stay,
And others must be thrown away.
I take the best from all the land
To blend and make an alternative brand
Of skillful will that has a trick
Of joining those that contradict.
And now I find that will is more,
It opens every closing door.
Mind, you're strong, but take the pill!
Nothing tops empowering will.
The tapes mind plays are from the past
I'm not required to make them last
And keep from here to eternity.
I'm in control of what happens to me!
Empowering will will make the change
For mind to find a brand new range
For building toward a destiny
Of purpose based on individuality.
Be careful! There is more to come.
And now, I know I must succumb
To ways that match with God's design
Of using me to make life fine.
By giving up my strong intent
To take control of all events,
I find Real Will can take control
And see solutions for my soul
That never could occur without
The give-away of personal clout.
By giving up to All That Be,
Revelations come to the likes of me.
