So often I do wonder ,

Why things are as so;

What is my true Dharma,

And which way I should go?


It seems so commonplace,

To let things go their way,

To live with out ideals,

And go with public sway.


Within me there's this place,

So quiet, full of bliss;

I often climb inside,

Forgetting what I'll miss.


The world goes on outside,

Tragic, full of pain;

Yet when I am inside,

I hear this song's refrain:


We are one and one is all ,†††††††

Judge not, but rather sing.

Be with in, but live without,

And watch the joy it brings.


I ask that you do not judge,

For judgment brings its fears;

And fear is worse than death,

The source of all our tears.
