Path and goal

Eternal Reality

Prerequisite
The mystery of being chosen
Path and goal
From spiritual being
Matching myself
Found again
Inseparable
Awe
Constraint
Differentiation
Obligation
The work of ‘grace’
Divine laughter
Pre-eminence
Possibility of redemption
For the sake of love
Taming the ‘beast’
Guilt and atonement
The Eternal
Renewal
Immortality
Knowledge
Afterwards
To each his own
Self-deification
Becoming real
Experience of God

Path and goal

 

To reach the path I show
Means recognising the goal,
Towering high above all earthly goals,
Already called ‘sublime’
By dreams steeped in desire.

If someone finds the path,
He finds the path’s exalted goal.
After his first few steps upon the path
He feels restored,
No longer compulsory subjected
To meaningless games.

And yet: the path is not measured through contest,
No one can surpass other applicants!
Here the wanderer must first
Forget every urge for recognition
Before he hears himself be called by name at the goal.
