A Change Of Attitude [REVISED]


A Change Of Attitude
Felt guilty reading how to meditate, quieten the mind
and focus on that calm place inside where we are
free to be happy. Falling asleep is my only quietening
success, when my mind is awake its bored by chores,
needs challenges to awaken creativity and joyous
involvement in current events

Without excitement of overcoming difficult obstacles
my mind tunes to Station Doldrums Radio Moping, at
bedtime I try to focus on spiritual ideas, yet no calm
inner peace presents, only fissures of worry increase
about my inability to meet daily life’s requirements; it
is so difficult to calm the little alien in my head

My brain stem base reptilian consciousness shouts
‘Run away from being as it is’; yet fortified with new
internet information I shall try again tonight – though
it’s worrying to read some spiritual entities say non-
physical life is pure joy evermore. I’m sure attitude
and mood change is required to keep interest alive –

One-dimensional awareness without the changing
colours of various emotions sounds so boring; oh,
boredom, once again…
