Mirrors of the Minds

Which “D” am I?

Her oppressions wail

Crying bitterness of plight

Oppressing complaint

Which “D” am I?

Having eyes of flesh

Her days like mortal women

Misses life’s purpose

Which “D” am I?

Experiences

Lucid anguish through her thoughts

Who can deliver?

Shift the Meaning of your Feelings.

I have assigned one “D” to each poem.

However, you will likely have different experiences.  Perhaps, you are experiencing distress, despair, or depression.  What do you do?

The thoughts forming in your mind are causing feelings even if they are true or not.  You are in charge of how you think.

Now, Let’s Discover How to Shift Your Thoughts to Hope.

Experts call the method “Shifting.”

Example:

  • Be Aware

Whenever your thoughts drift onto negative energies, your physiology experiences a depletion of positive feelings.  You feel the change.

  • Shift Thoughts

Remove a negative thought with a positive thought.  You simply take an opposite point of view of the negative.

  • Focus

Focus on the positive thought until you experience empowering feelings.

  • Act

Do Something Positive Immediately.

  • Experience Hope

Notice How Cravings for Pornography Leave You.

Hope becomes the main focus.

Sexual cravings

Porn addict’s appetite

Pleasure draws him to

Hunger drives him on

His appetite works for him

Satisfaction rules

 Unsatisfied need

His desire longs for pleasure

Pain fills his being

He yearns after peace

God satisfies his longing

He finds liberty

Meditation

Proverbs 16:26

26 He that laboureth,

laboureth for himself;

for his mouth craveth it of him.

They, who walk with good,

Fear God in deep wonderment.

Fools, who are perverse,

Loathe God and His Graciousness;

If I Love Porn, I hate God.
