Krishnamurti On Observing Ourselves
The Perfect Plan
By Chuck Danes
Do you sometimes feel that life's unfair, that future hope is bleak?
Do your day to day experiences leave your spirit feeling weak?
Do you ever think the joys in life are reserved for just a few?
That your hopes and dreams you'll never reach no matter what you do.
Perhaps you've thought how hard it is to get ahead these days?
That strain and strife are just part of life and nothing you do pays.
If you do, take heart my friend, so many think this way.
But there is hope a brighter path that you can take today.
It will require a shift in thought, it may challenge your beliefs
But it will guide you to a life of joy, content, relief.
So listen closely and absorb this perfect plan I share
Implement these steps you'll learn and soon you'll be aware
Of a life that's filled with joy beyond your wildest dreams
Regardless what "appears" to be no matter how life seems.
Focus your attention on what you soon will learn
The wisdom in it, if acted on will provide those things you yearn
The answers are available just seek and you will find
That all which you've experienced is a product of your mind
These troubles you encounter now that you feel get in your way
Are due to thoughts, emotions felt that you had yesterday.
For long ago the plan was made which allowed you to be free
From all these limitations that you now perceive to be
You have been given power which you're not yet aware
It's through misuse of this precious gift that's created your despair
For in the plan there came a clause that remains within it still
That each and every soul on earth be entitled to free will
You chose to limit your results by absorbing false belief
The plan designed to bring you joy through your own choice brought you grief
For every thought, emotion felt consists of energy
And those that you allow to grow is what life comes to be
The life that you are living now is due to seeds you've sown
The thoughts, beliefs, emotions felt is precisely what has grown
You must undo the damage done and shatter old beliefs
And do away with those that harm instead of bring relief
You must rethink the choices made that brought you where you are
Rewrite the script of your own life which allows you to go far
There is a law that draws to you those things you'd like to see
Just use your free will consciously and soon you will be free
To experience life's beauty and all it can provide
Just follow closely what is shared and use it as your guide
First you must become aware of all you think and say
Discover and become aware of the powerful role they play
In attracting the experiences you come to see in life
Are they in harmony with joy, or lack and pain and strife?
For it is these that stir within emotions that you feel
Projected out attracting more that you perceive as real
The energy they emanate attracts more of the same
Be conscious of the signal sent and what it is you claim
Now ponder on your core beliefs, what you believe is true
Are those beliefs in harmony with what you want to do?
Examine closely one by one and discern if they are truth
Or were they handed down to you and given you in youth?
Are they based on ease, love, joy and possibility
Or struggle, strain, fear and strife, examine them and see
Determine which will serve you and which you need to shun
Analyze them carefully, each and every one.
