Verse 52

Bid on NFT

That which created the universe 
    is the Mother of the world 
By knowing the Mother 
    one knows her children 
By knowing her children 
    one comes to know her 
Such is their unity 
    that one does not exist without the other 
Fully embrace your life 
    and you will share in the glory of creation 
The Mother herself will be your guardian 
And all her creation will be your guide 
Stay with the Mother, shut the mouth, close the gates 
    and you are never in trouble 
Abandon the Mother, open the mouth, be busy with others 
    and you are beyond all hope of rescue 
Seeing your own smallness is called insight 
Honouring your own tenderness is called strength 
The sun in all its glory 
    reveals a passing world 
Only the inner light illumines eternity 
Only that light can guide us back home 
Have faith 
Follow your own shining 
Be aware of your own awareness 
On the darkest nights you will not stumble 
On the brightest days you will not blink 
This is called 
    “The Practice of Eternal Light”
