I cried out into the wilderness of existence,
hearing only reverberations of my own voice.
When the last echo died, silence appeared, and
within it, I heard a voice; not with my ears,
but with my soul.
The voice said, "Compassion and advancement
are the hungers of the Universe; divinity is an
inherent legacy of humans; consciousness is the
Ultimate Power, and all are unified within that
Power; physical death is the end of one cycle
and the beginning of the next."
Through the Voice in the Silence, I found
the "path," and a companion to travel with.
