The seeking paradox

The beauty of love;
the harder we seek,
the more we’re eluded.

The stillness of silence;
the more we discuss,
the less we experience.

The peace in rest;
the harder we try,
the wearier we are.

The wonder of simplicity;
the more we think,
the further we go.

The richness of abundance;
the more we need,
the less we seem to have.

The joy of mindfulness;
the less we try,
the more we experience.

The joy of happiness;
the less we crave,
the more we have.

The saints throughout history have said:
“Let go and look within”
Understand thyself,
And see the paradox for what it is:

A reminder that life is simple
