Seeking and Peace by Ed Hirsch

Seeking and Peace
When I seek my fulfillment beyond me,
I give myself over to fear.
But now I can see that the truth is
It is here. It is here. It is Here.
When I place my own good in the future,
I hope for a miracle somehow.
But now I can see that the truth is
It is now. It is now. It is Now.
When I place my own heart in another,
I’m left empty and wondering why.
But now I can see that the truth is
It is I. It is I. It is I.
When rejecting and seeking the higher,
I’m driven and chasing the sun.
But now I can see that the truth is
It is one. It is one. It is One.
When escaping myself and my life world,
I’m consumed by pursuing my bliss.
But now I can see that the truth is,
It is this. It is this. It is This.
