The Transcendent initiated communication from the Holy of Holies

to the guide within each of us

And Beingness spoke from above

from a transitory place of God’s presence.

In words the communication may be translated as follows:


Speak with all the parts of yourself

and speak again with them:

A human being

when wishing to draw close to the Divine 

it is from you yourself

that a drawing closer to God must come;

draw out nearness from your animal soul 

whether your nature is bullish

or sheepish—

that is the source of your drawing close to God.
