I have been to many places and gone through my share of tough times and misery. Let me sing this song to you that express my sorrows and regret over not listening to you. Now, I no longer need to be on the stage or in the spotlight and I no longer need applause. I know that you and I, together, would be enough for me to feel happy and joyful and live healthier.
There are some areas in my life in which I feel powerless and don’t know how to resolve it. However, I refused to listen to you and walked on my own path. Now, I turn around, change the direction I am facing and see a bigger picture. Although the unwilling world may not change, as I myself change, everything has transformed to become a much better and clearer picture. My choice changes the relationship between me and the world that I am facing.
Ultimately, I have found the relationship that is—and always has been—within me. I guess I already knew that. This realization will open the doors to the higher consciousness of awakening that I wish to begin and that will enable me to engage in true prayer—one true relationship with God to help me open my inner eye to see better than before. Once I was impaired, and was kept in spiritual unconsciousness. I believe in the higher power of God, who wants to develop an intimate relationship with me. He wants me to be aware of His presence within me and see that I am living within Him. I think for a moment and then I relinquish all my impulses and desires to the supreme power of God, for He knows what is best for me even before I pray to Him. He is and always has known all of my needs without my having to express them to Him. This is because He understands me better than I know myself. Some may reject me, but He will never turn me down. I then know I should invest something that I can depend on; as I awaken to this, I know how to pray to help me to do what is right for me. It is at this point, where my broken heart heals, that I indeed long for a new level of relationship with the Oneness Source of the Universe.
