What is the key
To untie the knot of your mind’s suffering?
WhatIs the esoteric secretTo slay the crazed one whom each of usDid wed
And who can ruinOur heart’s and eye’s exquisite tenderLandscape?

That I now cling to as I would sacredTresses of my Beloved’sHair:
Act great.My dear, always act great.
What is the keyTo untie the knot of the mind’s suffering?
Benevolent thought, soundAnd movement.
