To illuminate The Way

study the wayfarers of old.

 

Take up the timeless work

of untangling the soul.

 

Align Heart-Mind

with nature's flow.

 

Journey into the dark

to mine the hidden gold.

 

When the lantern-lit mind

abides in silent illumination,

the wayfarer's poems bear the mark

of the Great Transformation.
