The Landscape of Positive Energy and Attitude

positive energy and attitude
make a better landscape
for one's life
keep it simple
generate from love
see others
as yourself
shine your light gently
where ever you are
palms up
or palms down
always strive for enlightenment
by knowing
higher energy levels:
peace
joy
love
reason
acceptance
willingness
courage
lower energy levels:
pride
anger
desire
fear
grief
apathy
guilt
shame
rise up and let go 
discard the heaviness
embrace the lighter load
there will always be
rocky terrain
and darker forces
but choose to know
there is more lushness in light
often light 
illuminates darkness
creating opportunity for expansion
 each of us
carry a sword
and a lantern...
whenever possible
choose the lantern

How true - if one can choose, choose that which gives life. Well said. :-)

I really liked these lines. Nice poem.
