From the Way of Love #15
Leave appearances. Come to essence and meaning.
Don’t dwell in images or you’ll never mature.
The Way is amazing but don’t be deceived.
Let it be a wonder to see the Friend’s face.
Dress yourself in love. Set out on the Way to the Friend.
Persevere and you’ll have so much to see.
From here to the city of Love three hundred oceans you’ll travel and after crossing them seven hells.
Let yourself burn up, burn to ashes in each one,
until nothing’s left of your body, except a very different one.
The city of Reality has seven doors, and over a gate the words:
Come in and know the power of your Lord.
