18. Inner vision

My inner vision tells me
    That I am nearer than the nearest
    To my Lord Supreme.

My outer sight tells me
    That I am farther than the farthest
    From my Lord Supreme.

Whom to believe?

If I believe my inner vision,
    Pride tortures my heart.
If I believe my outer sight,
    Frustration tortures my mind.

I am not going to believe either.
