It is only humans
Who walk on two different paths in life.
One path is the external Explicit System, and
The other is the internal Implicit System.

From daily requirements
To themes and issues in society,
As well as the progress of science technology and
The immense cathedral of civilization,
All are accomplishments of the Explicit System pathway.

No matter how fulfilling the Explicit System path may be
If we forget the path of the Implicit System
We will never find
The meaning of our life.

Without the internal cycle
Of observing our mind and soul
We cannot live
In the deep layer of our lives.
