My Soul

O Soul, I am your body. I am thirty-six years old today.
I wish to learn from you.
“Do good.”

O Soul, I am your vital. I am nineteen years old.
I want to learn from you.
“Be good.”

O Soul, I am your mind. I am sixty years old.
I need to learn from you.
“See good.”

O Soul, I am your heart. I am four years old.
Please tell me the secret.
“Remain good.”

O Soul, your body again.
What do you do with your boundless Love?
“I distribute my boundless Love
To ever-expanding horizons.”

O Soul, your vital again.
What do you do with your Infinite Peace?
“I feed the teeming vasts of the
Past, Present and Future with my Infinite Peace.”

O Soul, your mind again.
What do you do with your Vision of the
Ever-transcending Beyond?
“I feather the Golden Nest of my Reality’s
Infinitude with my Vision of the ever-transcending Beyond.”

O Soul, once more your heart.
Tell me your absolute secret, please.
“I live for the Supreme and for the Supreme alone.
This is my Absolute Secret.”
