I am the sea, the all-embracing empathy

that warms the tender-hearted visionaries

who feel the flooding tide of love

and sink into infinity.

And I am the deep, the silence of the name

that crowns the fleeting hopes

that strive and cry aloud for breath

with the fire of immortality.

And I am the Aum, the all-pervading sound

that soothes the blind and broken

and gives them back their ancient right

to stand beside eternity.

For I am the breath of earth and the peace of air

the compassion of the sky and the song of rain

I am the transcendent

I am to be known.
