106. The achievement of non-possession

When he was a man of non-possession,
He became the marvellous blend
Of love and action.
His religion was not noisy,
His philosophy was not showy.
He advanced and achieved,
He achieved and advanced.
He knew that he was a descendent of God.
He knew that he was on a footing of equality with God.
Heaven gave him Heaven’s possession:
     Delight.
Earth gave him earth’s possession:
     Perfection.
