401. Where he belongs

Excess of blindness carried him
To the stone world
Where he belonged.

Excess of helplessness carried him
To the plant world
Where he belonged.

Excess of aggressiveness carried him
To the animal world
Where he belonged.

Excess of ignorance keeps him
In the human world
Where he belongs.

Excess of devotedness shall place him
In the divine world
Where he shall belong.
