When we finally know we’re enough,
when we have enough, do enough, are enough,
when our being is enough,
when what we want most is found in the stillness,
the wholeness inside;
Then what we need will come to us
without effort or struggle,
without violence, without grasping,
gently as the rain falls from the sky,
as easily as breathing,
giving and receiving
in the natural cycle of living things.
We need not fear.
What is empty will be filled.
And what is full will be emptied
only to be filled again.
On that day the earth
will begin to green again
And the whales will sleep peacefully
in the deep.
Then the children will dream of tomorrow;
When we finally know we’re enough.
When we finally come to know our own being,
and cease to grasp for things to make us whole,
Then our beauty will be reflected in the waters,
the air will sparkle with health giving energy,
and the herons will return to the marshes
when we finally know we’re enough.
