Everything you see has its roots

in the unseen world.

The forms may change,

yet the essence remains the same.

Every wondrous sight will vanish,

every sweet word will fade.

But do not be disheartened,

The Source they come from is eternal—

growing, branching out,

giving new life and new joy.

Why do you weep?—

That Source is within you,

and this whole world

is springing up from it.

The Source is full,

its waters are ever-flowing;

Do not grieve,

drink your fill!

Don’t think it will ever run dry—

This is the endless Ocean!

From the moment you came into this world,

a ladder was placed in front of you

that you might transcend it.

From earth, you became plant,

from plant you became animal.

Afterwards you became a human being,

endowed with knowledge, intellect and faith.

Behold the body, born of dust—

how perfect it has become!
