385. Surprise dies

Love the earth-soul;
You will surprise the Heaven-goal.

Love the Heaven-soul;
You will surprise the earth-goal.

Love the life of God-perfection,
You will surprise the birthless and deathless bondage-man.

Love the birthless and deathless bondage-man;
You will surprise the life of God-perfection.

But when you love your surrender-light
To the world within and to the world without,
Surprise dies in the land of nowhere.
