At midstream you stand, the flowing current
touch your feet, transient, fleeting, in an instant.
Flows the water current, constantly touching you
How many cusecs of it, you think, belongs to you ?
Either consider the entire water current is yours
else be certain, really nothing of it is yours
What you belong to is what that belongs to you
Yet, own nothing of the Whole that you belong to
Only class of conscious force is at work
in all parts of each thing of everything Here
All five elements have come into existence
by reason of distinct discrimination of essence
Comfort and discomfort experienced by the senses
Chemical reactions of different types of substances
which collide with the senses in different conditions
and create subtle , entirely varied vibrations
All mental and physical substance, existent
Are part of the incessant flowing force, consistent
Substances flow unceasing, uninterrupted
Your belongings are eternal, unlimited.
Immortal Soul is pure, in union with One
'I' am part of the Whole, which contains me.
Whole is One, a part of which 'I' am wholly
at one with the One, the Whole belongs to me.
