45. Eternal surrender

Lord Supreme,
Eternal surrender:
Does it exist or will it ever exist?

“My son, from time immemorial
 Eternal surrender
  Has walked the soil of earth.

My transcendental Silence
My universal Sound
 To each other have offered
  Their capacity-height
 In the form of surrender-light.

The surrender of My Silence
 To My Life of Sound
  Makes earth grow
 Towards the highest height.

The surrender of My Sound
 To My Life of Silence
  Makes Heaven descend
 To feel the bleeding heartbeat
Of Mother Earth.”
