Open palms raised up, lips open
to magnify His Majesty;
A most beautiful Opening is sought,
with the Seven Gems.
Maintaining stillness of mind,
the heart rapturously lights
the avenues to the spirit by
engagement with the Divine.
A heavenly vacuum seals off all
tranquility descends upon the room
and enters the heart.
An Opening was sought, a gift
was bestowed, and words
can not deciper this moment.
