In losing lies the finding.

In sacrifice the gain.

Freedom is a binding rope,

And liberty a chain.

Loving is releasing.

Releasing is relief.

Devotion is a letting go,

And knowledge is belief.

Hatred is unworthiness.

Unworthiness a void.

Grace is for the graceless one,

And reason has destroyed.

In giving up lies victory.

Humility is strong.

Submission leads to freedom’s gate,

And time is not so long.

A spirit lives forever.

The lives of men are mists.

Work is vain endeavor,

And a paradox exists.
