When you stop striving and reaching for goals
You will stop floundering trapped on your shoals
All of your reaching will not take you where
You think it will take you you’re already there
In fact there is nothing and no place to go
You’re already realized you just don’t know
The saintly presence you’re questing to reach
Will provide nothing you can’t already teach
Serenity already lives inside you
Your task to embrace there is nothing to do
Rather than action it’s about letting go
Listen to what’s inside from that you will grow
Serenity comes from accepting what’s so
Trusting your wisdom and process to know
Letting go of the ego that thinks it needs more
Live in the moment BEING’S what you’re here for
If you can embrace “you’re already whole”
So rich and so fertile and so not alone
Serenity’s already deep in your soul
Take a big drink from your own mixing bowl
What have you been striving for?
Does that striving get in the way of your own peace and serenity?
Are they mutually exclusive?
Can you be peaceful without the particular achievement?
Can you embrace that you are already whole?
