It’s Time to Give Up
Steve Taylor, a researcher and author of five books, was included in Mind, Body, Spirit magazine’s list of "the 100 most spiritually influential living people." His work has been described by Eckhart Tolle as "an important contribution to the shift in consciousness happening on our planet." His spiritual poems, published in The Meaning, offer a profound glimpse into the presence he speaks about in his work.
It’s time to give up
The endless struggle to become
And accept that this is all there is
That there’s nothing more to gain or lose.
If this moment isn’t good enough
Then no moment ever will be
If you can’t make peace with the present now
You’ll always be at war.
It’s time to stop trying
To bend the world to your will
And allow life to unfold
With slow natural grace, like spring.
It’s time to stop swimming
And let the river carry you.
Why strive so hard
When you can flow so easy?
