Reality designed me,
Creates me, body and soul,
Reveals Its purpose.
Though my humanity is impermanent,
It guards, guides and comforts me.
Despite my human lust, anger, greed, attachments and ego,
It claims me for Itself.
It dissolves me in Its alpha and omega,
It fulfils me; “My cup runneth over.”
Slowly but surely, It returns me to Itself
And I am in Reality for ever …
