Heaven and Hell

Standard

If you search for Heaven
you will never find it
and if you try to run from Hell
it will always keep up with you.
Do not search,
and do not run,
because everything you seek
and everything you fear
is always right where you are.
Our purpose isn’t to grab as much good
and avoid as much bad as we can.
Our purpose is to know ourselves so well
that no glory
and no tragedy
can sway us from our steady breath
and the peace that waits for us
in the center of being.
