Awaken yourself by your Self
And you become enlightened.
Examine yourself by your Self
And wisdom soon arises.
For the Self is the lord of the self
Midst light and shadow always;
Weighing in the hand both good and evil,
Discerning in the darkness the light which few can see.
Thus guarded by the Self and most attentive,
You become the Master and the architect of all your life.
Building of your life that living temple where God is quick revealed.
Touching the heavens far beyond, to give it place within your soul.
For the Self of the self is filled with mystery,
Casting light upon many shadows.
Thus in knowing the Self
The Master is made both good and wise.
Acting subtly through simple doings
The Master speaks, then soft lets go.
Greeting always both joy and sorrow
With a calm and kind regard.
For the Master has, but does not possess,
Acts, but does not expect,
Leads, but does not rule,
Teaches, but does not demand,
Accepting with equal grace both saint and sinner,
Seeing in each the shadow of the other.
For the Master is the source of harmony,
Giving hope and solace to every people.
Thus is the Master made strong through yielding,
Like the rushing out of many waters,
Wearing away the hardest stone.
