Closed eyes open
To be achieved, nothing
Instead, calm awareness:
That which is, is

No mantra position
Dogma limits, noncompelling
Rather, truth known:
That which works, works

Here and there
Transference, void
All, the one whole;
Not a footprint: All

Seek thee first
Prayer pattern, unlimited
Rather, accept eternity:
Not my will, thine

Flesh and blood
Same as me, Father
Knowing, the Way:
Nothing to learn, gain

Gladness values sadness
Sunny gravitation, infinite
Unify, all ways:
Known now? Perfection

One step closer
Living in, live without
To do, be:
Carry the world, inside

Allowance of life
No force, compulsion
Live, that is all.
God, being
