"Meta-For," 9/30/2017-11/3/2017

Some beliefs, you hold at core: a basic
Fundamental truth you fight to keep at
Front and center of your life, to guide and
Ground you, rightfully, correct-fully, at
Purpose: several, few, or one, as you see
Fit. They're there, expressed in your own lore: "I
Hold to this no matter what. My life has
Told me it's important to." It fits you.
As it should. It's earned, ashore your rock of
Consciousness, supporting thoughts, ideas,
Inclinations and convictions. Swore, you
Did, afore the tests and challenges of
Everything. How much will you be tested?
Your belief will color testing times. Then
Your belief will color memories.
What is learned? Did you learn? Did belief let
Lessons in? Ideas? Heretofore un-
Thought thoughts? Should it? Can it? Yes, if done well.
How well? Please, implore I do, you can do
Well. Do better. What you're for can bolster
You. Or hobble you, impede, regress, stop.
When, against what you believe, you try what
Won't ring true to you, you disadvantage
Yourself, at some fundamental level.
"Doesn't work." "That wouldn't work." "I knew this."
...Did you? Or: assumed? Pre-judged? Defeated?
You defeating you is easy to do.
You supporting you: an evermore need.
This provides relief from all that's tougher.
Not, at times, an easy task on its own;
That's an understood impediment. So:
How you build belief, how much, how well, is
A unique conundrum. You must ask this:

Why are you for what you're for?
