2. The cosmic task

A human life neglected,

A cosmic plan unfinished.


A human life regulated,

A cosmic task that has reached its

zenith goal.


He who neglects

Is a failure in God's Eye.

He who leaves his task unfinished

Again and again must come

To the earthly shores to complete his task:

The task of earth-transformation

And his own body-perfection.
