The air I am breathing was exhaled in ecstasy

          By an ancient sun.

          This earth I am standing on

          Was born of cosmic fire.

          The blood flowing through my veins

          Is as salty as the primordial ocean.

          The space permeating my body

          Is infinite as the space all around.

          Above, below, to all sides, within,

          The elements of the universe

          Are engaged in their ceremony of delight.

          This is my religion.

          The attraction between suns

          Is the same

          As the love pulsating in my heart.”
