♥ The Truth of Life

Do we have a purpose,
is a question one will often ask
Is there a higher power out there,
some greater task
The truth will hurt many,
not only a few
People have a hard time dealing with
that which is true
There is nothing greater that watches your back
Deal with it, stop crying and build your own stack
You are responsible for the life that you lead

It is not someone else’s fault when you don’t get what you need
If one wants the stars,
they must be grabbed by one’s own hand
Nothing in life is freely given ...
there is no promised land

So the question remains,
why are we here
For those without faith,
the answer is painfully clear
We live only for today and
if we are lucky the morrow
To us there is no afterlife,
but that brings us no sorrow
Self improvement is our main goal
and it starts in the here and now

We refuse to be filled with illusions of grandeur
and get fat off them like a cow
The best of us seek improvement in every area we can
Without the proper balance of self
there can be no complete man

Wisdom is for the wise
and that is one of the things we strive to be
Vision in what was once blind,
reality is what we wish to see
The past can lend us wisdom
if we choose to open our eyes
Sadly for the masses

it is easier to stomach soothing lies
Self-improvement starts with vision
and vision is the key to all
Vision gives us the gift of truth,
but few can handle it and many fall
For us lucky few who can handle truth
the road is bright ahead

We strive for perfection,
but get betterment instead
Strength is another goal that we fight hard to seek
We know that in the end
nothing will be given the weak
To be great in life one must be strong
The meek shall inherit nothing,
their reign never long
Sadly power can taint
and if that happens, destroy
Power is not for the weak of mind,
but it can be a joy
Might may try it’s hardest
but it can never honestly make right
Though it is important to note that
history is written by the victor of a fight
Though it can be bad,
strength is a tremendously important tool

On the path of self-improvement
you will meet many a fool
Too many people cannot handle truth
and they will try and eliminate the source
So if you are strong enough,
they can never make you change course

Self-improvement may be the main but
there is another that is key
Procreation is the natural drive of life,
for you and for me
In truth,
there is only one way after death to live on
And that is through procreation,
the creation of your spawn
Children are your life force

and they make you feel wonderfully alive
They give focus to your chaos
and motivation for your drive
Without children a person is never whole
They lack an essential ingredient,
that one special role
Nothing can fill the void except when a child is put in the space
Their life lends you power,
there is magic in their face

I have answered the question,
though some may not like what I have said
I smile and wave them goodbye,
for I know the truth in their stead
I cannot force vision on the masses,
but I will forever strive to try
My gift of vision is for those who want to see
through life’s lie
I once was blind but now I see

However, it wasn’t god that did this for me
I walked the path of self-improvement
with my own two feet
Due to this fact I can never be beat
I can deal with just about any problem
that can come my way
When times get tough I don’t get on my knees
and pray

I deal with whatever comes
at me while standing proud
I refuse to settle for mediocrity
I will always stand out in a crowd

Life is hard,
that is a fact that people have to understand
And of course there are times
when you need a helping hand
No man is an island, and I totally agree
My problem lies with people who only want to lean on me
When you never hold your self up,
you deny yourself improvement

If you let your muscles atrophy, then you can never have positive movement
A life without a child and with no betterment
is a life wasted
That is a life that was smelt
and looked at but never tasted
I have given you enough wisdom
to ponder for the day
Question everything or forever frozen you’ll stay

Has anyone said to you, "You need to look at yourself?" While this comment may be off-putting or considered rude, it has value. It is of value in that when one can see oneself from the eyes of others, only then is one able to truly see oneself in full dimension.

Sigmund Freud, 1856-1939, Austrian psychiatrist, founder of psychoanalysis identified twelve behavior habits which he posited created varying degrees of emotional distress and dysfunction. One of these twelve coping habits is projecting onto others that which one does not want to know about oneself. In order for anyone to recognize this coping habit, one has to look at oneself-thus the comment is a gift. Albeit at the moment it might be considered a rude or condescending comment.

Self-important feelings might prompt you to be disrespectful or arrogant. Disrespect or arrogance is a mask for underlying feelings of self-doubt. Unfortunately, this behavior drives others away and thus you feel even less sure of yourself-an ironic cycle. When someone says, "You need to look at yourself," you have been given a gift. This gift can only be given by someone who truly knows you and cares about you. Because if the person did not know you or care about you they would simply go away, leaving you wondering why, thus, leaving you feeling less sure of yourself.

When you see the traits you dislike in yourself in others and adopt an attitude of haughtiness you are avoiding facing yourself and you will end up feeling even more uncertain. Facing your shortcomings boldly can give you the opportunity to regain your self-confidence and help you work through your issues and to cleanse the lens of your spirit. When you look at your self-doubt you will discover that you are better able to relate to yourself and others.

Consider taking all feedback as a gift-albeit might come from an unlikely source. Others are merely mirrors for you. You cannot love or hate something about another person unless it reflects something you love or hate about yourself.

Instead of using your energy to defend yourself, you can use your energy to face the comment and discover your insecurities or areas that need improvement. When you look at yourself you will feel better about yourself, heal old issues and let go of the need to project your feelings onto others.

Looking at your feelings in a constructive way helps you to avoid projecting your feelings onto others. Discovering the root cause of your need to cope by projecting is important. You are the only one you are fooling by masking your true feelings by projecting onto others. You will enhance your relationships by looking at yourself and improving on those issues that are hindering you from being yourself and allowing who you truly are to come through.
