791. A student from God’s school

He studied at God’s school;
God was his main teacher.
God taught him
Only one thing: necessity.

“Son, if you want to live
Only in the soul’s world,
I am your only necessity.
But if you want to live
In the body’s world,
Then everything is your necessity,
Everybody is your necessity,
I am your necessity,
Countless, yet countless more.
Now that you have completed your studies,
Time has come for you to go home
And begin your life.”
