Why do you hide?

Lord, I seek and You hide.

I seek because without You

My life-flames do not and cannot burn.

Now Lord, tell me,

Why do You hide?

"Daughter, I hide because

My hiding intensifies your seeking.

It gratifies your loving,

Glorifies your achievement

And immortalises your enlightenment."
