180. Sin and crime

It is a sin against the human

In my mind

When I think of fear.


It is a crime against the God

In my heart

When I think of doubt.


It is a sin against my God-becoming

In my life-river

When I deliberately feed despair.


It is a crime against my God-manifestation

In my body-field

When I unconditionally surrender to shameless death.
