TRANSITIONS

 

Constant in life—

As change with challenge;

Constant in life—

Challenges in life as

Transitions in life and to death;

Transitions:

From time to time,

From moment to moment,

From mood to mood,

From emotion to emotion,

From happiness to sadness to happiness,

From sleep to wakefulness to sleep;

From problem to problem,

From one culture to another,

From job to job,

From job to retirement,

From person to person to aloneness,

From marriage to divorce to marriage;

From developmental stage to next,

From biological life to death of the flesh,

From living flesh to birth of

The spirit as whole and celestial;

Changes, transitions—

In life and to life’s death

And the spiritual beyond.

 

TRANSITION TO A NEW DAY

 

I am blessed to awake

And transition each day

To a new day

With God in my heart;

With God’s thoughts

In my mind; and

With God’s good work

In my waking intention.

 

MOVE ON

(Transition from the past to the future)

 

If abused and unappreciated,

You may feel suffering with

Pain, anger, sadness, and fear;

If you can’t work it out, move on;

You have a choice—the freedom

To act is yours;

Resolve the unhappiness within your mind

And with your other, or within your world;

Or simply find the will and strength to

Move on.

 

IT’S OKAY TO BE WHO YOU ARE

(Identity and Self-Acceptance)
