180. Sin and crime

It is a sin against the human
   In my mind
When I think of fear.

It is a crime against the God
   In my heart
When I think of doubt.

It is a sin against my God-becoming
   In my life-river
When I deliberately feed despair.

It is a crime against my God-manifestation
   In my body-field
When I unconditionally surrender to shameless death.
