Lord, said David, since you do not need us,
why did you create these two worlds?

Reality replied: O prisoner of time,
I was a secret treasure of kindness and generosity,
and I wished this treasure to be known,
so I created a mirror: its shining face, the heart;
its darkened back, the world;
You might like the back, if you’ve never seen the face.

Spirit, find your way, let gravity draw you in.
Reason, tread the path of selflessness into eternity.

Remember God so much, that you are forgotten.
Let the caller and the called disappear.
Be lost in the Call.
