Remedies for the Spirit
 
 

True Self

 

Tell fear that it must leave.  Tell blame you’ll have no more.

           Tell jealousy goodbye.  Show worry to the door.

 

Releasing ALL that’s negative, left with what is true,

           A self closer to God, free to blossom through.

 

Free to point and lead, a self that’s Heaven sent,

           Free to lift the veil, to peace and heart’s content.

 

Tell pretense it’s not welcome and self-pity it can’t stay.

           Tell guilt it must move on now, make anger go away.

 

Discarding ALL that’s negative, left with what is true,

           A self closer to God, free to blossom through.

 

Free to see and guide, a self that’s Heaven sent,

           Free to light the path, to peace and heart’s content.
