Having too little faith will turn one into a hopeless nihilist
But having an abundance of faith will attract others to your light
Don’t be like a dog chasing its tail
Or an office worker complaining day in and day out
Doing nothing to improve their lot—-
For behind all the world’s illusions lies the ultimate reality
At once transcendent and imminent
Filled to the brim with love
But like an old lamp
You have to first remove the layers of dust
To see its luminous essence.
