852. Let us unite our possessions

Lord, since I am unable
To give up my desiring mind,
Is there any way I can get
Some benefit from this mind?
“Real benefit? No!
Real progress? No!
Take your present mind as unreality.
Then you will get
Whatever you want.”

What is real, Lord?
“Daughter, your aspiration is real.”
What else is real?
“My Compassion is real.”

Lord, what are we supposed
To do with my aspiration
And Your Compassion?
“Daughter, we are supposed
To unite our possessions
So that we can sing the song
Of perfect Perfection
