I tell you truly,
everything you now see
will vanish like a dream.
Break off your chains
My son, be free!
How long enslaved
by silver, gold?
Do not worry if all the candles in the world flicker and die
we have the spark that starts the fire.
There is no Love greater than Love with no object.
For then you, yourself, have become love itself.
Become earth, you may grow flowers of many colors. For you have been a heart-breaking rock. Once, for the sake of experiment, be earth!
Good and bad are mixed. If you don't have both,
you don't belong with us.
We are pain and what cures pain both.
It is Love that holds everything together.
