As long as I see others and not the same Divine in all,
I am hopelessly in love with ignorance.

As long as I work for others in the name of God,
I am tied forever to pride and self-deception.

As long as I live for others and not for the Divine,
I am still much human, unable to bear the rays of the Sun.

As long as I feel haunted by death and oblivion,
I live shut away from the eternal Life Divine.

As long as I have a separate body and soul, like a lone star,
I am stone-blind to the Reality of the wonderful One.

There is only One body, One life, One soul,
One consciousness, One infinite Eternal Being,
One living Reality, One nameless Bliss.
