“Life and death are one,
even as the sea and river are one
In the depth of your hopes and desires
lies your silent knowledge of the beyond,
And like seeds dreaming beneath the
snow your heart dreams of spring
Trust the dreams, for in them is hidden
the gate to eternity.
For what is it to die but to stand
naked in the wind and melt into the sun
And what is it to cease breathing
but to free the breath from its restless tides,
that it may rise and expand
and seek (God) unencumbered
Only when you drink from the river of
silence shall you indeed sing,
And when you have reached the mountain
top, then you shall begin to climb,
And when the earth shall claim your
limbs, then shall you truly dance.”
