In the midst of our era
When only what is visible is believed,
People have lost track
Of what is their ground:

The Great Existence
That supports and guides everything.
The immortal dimension
That shines within human beings.
The purpose of life
That teaches us the path to take.

How many people
Put their hearts into
And firmly believe in
Each of these?

To usher in
A new age,
The time has come to reclaim
The lost certainties.
