Page 13

Only in the given grace of a moment’s illumination is the mind freed and delighted

Only in the given grace is the heart truly free to love

And all falls, all activity is stilled and nothing, nothing is said

No longer estranged from its own prototype

 

Here the infinite works its wonders

Its silence which allows all speech

It sings and is silent

It offers praise while knowing it can offer nothing

You think this odd? You think this strange?

Nothing is strange to joy and delight

And nothing more fitting for the mind 
 
All waters turn to the sea

All waters turn to the source

All language strives to answer ‘Yes

Changed from one brightness into another

From created to uncreated

Becoming what we were always meant to be
