601. The connecting link

Master, God has blessed me with money;
You now bless me with realisation.

Son, God has not only blessed you with money,
But also with realisation —
The realisation of temptation and frustration.
Your money is the connecting link
Between
God the temptation
And
God the frustration.

And begged them to grant me some peace.

"Can't you go deep within
On my behalf?"

"Certainly I can,
But you have to give me permission."

To the second one I said:
