My Demons and Darkness

let us not look back in anger, nor forward in fear, but around us in mindfulness 

The dawn of a new life

Now that I am recovering from the illness which I suffered over the Holidays my mind is beginning to work again.  That is both a good and a bad thing.  It’s good because existing in a depressive semi-vegetative state is not living at all.  It’s bad because my demons are coming out of the darkness deep inside my mind to torment me again.

I’m not going to let that happen.  This the the dawn of a different life for me, not the beginning of another dark night.

I am not going to dwell on the past, nor regret anything that happened there.  I am not going to think much about the future, nor be afraid of anything that might happen in that far-off country.  Rather I will be mindful of today.  I will use today to begin to discover my own inner nature.

A spiritual journey is to uncover my own inner nature.  It’s already there.  ~  Billy Corgan.

I have realised that I need to discover who I really am, and what I can do to become the better man.  The only person I need to measure myself against is who I am today, and then be a better man tomorrow.

It’s a new dawn.  Please be optimistic for me.
