Honesty
Stay present with reality,
with what is.

Silence

Do I express myself appropriately,

excessively or insufficiently?

I am silent from weakness on many a matter,

for my words could not reckon them

and my speech would fall short.

Do I alter the truth to feel more satisfied with reality?
Do I trust that reality holds more than what my eyes perceive?
Which is more beautiful: to stutter through the truth
or eloquently tell a lie?
‚Äč

He beholdeth in illusion the secret of reality,

and readeth from the attributes the riddle of the essence.
