Stop Trying So Hard!

Stop trying to be perfect.
Stop trying to be good.
Stop trying to be right.
Stop trying to be strong.
Stop trying to be forgiving.
Stop trying to be loving.
Stop trying to be happy.
Stop trying to be wise.
Stop trying to be a healer.
Stop trying to be a teacher.
Stop trying to be a student.

Stop trying to take control.
Stop trying to accumulate wealth.
Stop trying to stay healthy.
Stop trying to live forever.
Stop trying to change yourself.
Stop trying to change the world.
Stop trying to work things out.
Stop trying to understand.
Stop trying to free yourself.
Stop trying to do this, that, or the other.
Stop trying.

Relax.
There is nothing for you to be or do;
God has got everything covered.

OK, I give up!
