The path of inner wisdom, wise men say,
leads forward only, and will not stop or stray.
And dire fears, colossal sufferings,
dissolve with every step along the way.
The day is dark to those who see the Light,
and find the glowing Star in darkest night.
The worldly man casts pity on the seer,
and revels in his unenlightened plight.
O! See the rivers of your mind’s desires,
that drain in endless branching multipliers!
Be like the Ocean, calling all back home—
content the heart whose longing thus retires.
