467. What shall I do?

What shall I do
For the rest of my life?
I shall build and break,
And break and build.

I shall build my Lord’s Palace
In the depths of my heart.
I shall break my giant ego
Right in front of my Lord’s Palace.

I shall break the bridge
Between the Bondage-Queen
And the Ignorance-King.
I shall build the bridge
Between the compassion-sky
Of my Father Heaven
And the perfection-sea
Of my Mother Earth.
