There Is Nothing That We Need To Do

This poem presents the idea that all our efforts are not as important as the realization that we don’t need to do anything.

How to shorten the time needed to heal?
How to wake up quickly to the real?
We only need to learn it, me and you,
There is nothing that we need to do

We have a common goal
We want to become whole
We work for this all day long
For we know something is wrong

How to shorten the time needed to heal?
How to wake up quickly to the real?
We only need to learn it, me and you,
There is nothing that we need to do

Throughout the day and every hour
We use the body’s little power
To try to control our situation
But we find even more frustration

How to shorten the time needed to heal?
How to wake up quickly to the real?
We only need to learn it, me and you,
There is nothing that we need to do

Many have sat to meditate
Their minds they try to elevate
But the thoughts come and go
They cannot control their flow

How to shorten the time needed to heal?
How to wake up quickly to the real?
We only need to learn it, me and you,
There is nothing that we need to do

People make laws and rules
And teach them in the schools
But the fear of correction
Has not brought us perfection

How to shorten the time needed to heal?
How to wake up quickly to the real?
We only need to learn it, me and you,
There is nothing that we need to do

Only the body ever needs to act
Love and truth are completely abstract
And the soul that these things finds
Offers peace to all other minds

When from the body we have been freed
We will not need to do any deed
We will have learned this statement true
There is nothing that we need to do
