Struggle is the calling card of life,
for souls with potential to grow and understand,
and we may curse the limits of our world
within which troubles unfurl like autumn leaves to sunlight,
the burden of change too much to bare,
yet in change there is freedom and rebirth,
pain, our deliverance to higher thought
and broader perspective.
Strife is not retribution
but the consequence of ill-conceived paths,
mistakes that require understanding
and imbalances that need rectification,
for in learning our decisions acquire finesse,
an observance of our destined path
and the movements that assist our
ascension in thought.
A quietness of mind is the first step,
to review our decisions and the motivations behind them,
in this way we free ourselves from bias and past
to perceive life more wholly,
and to accept the cycles of learning as necessary,
not to be blamed but held with appreciation,
for they are our redemption and ascension
into higher realms of wisdom.
Life can be tiresome, our responsibilities
a heavy burden, yet in joy of acceptance,
they may change to something else,
a blueprint of decisions and movement that orchestrates
a life of acceptance and freedom,
freedom in our perception, not judgement but
a positive acceptance that transforms fear to joy,
and in that a settled heart, a quiet soul.
