Striving and pushing seems crazed

Suddenly awake from a daze

Wherever mind was pushing to go

Abundantly clear you already know


No place to get to why not be still

Deep in your center find your strong will

From that place of quiet all will emerge

Clear space is present after the purge


Much of life we move frantically about

Demanding expecting ranting shout

Missing pure blessing of our sacred being

Crashing through lives without ever seeing


If we are lucky smart and aware

We come to realize we’re already there

No place to go to no mountain to climb

Relax slide into your next sacred rhyme


Stay centered within your sphere

Wisdom gets you to your next there

Bask in the reverie of your arrival

Nowhere to go nothing to strive for


Pure simple friends to the flowers

Gentle steadfast hours upon hours

Confident radiant receiving clean

Pleasures of a magnificent dream


What if you were already where you have been striving for and had all you need?

If you could just be a human “being” how would your life be different?
