As Above, So Below
Live life zealously, itís an absolute end,|
Thereís no afterlife and no heaven;
Beyond death, who cares where Iím send,
If itís hell for me, let it be so my haven.
Ha, I envy them the most who dwell
where ignorance and indifference reign,
They desire no heaven, they fear no hell--
Abode of eternal bliss, pit of endless pain!
Open the inner eye of your mind
Youíll see the universe it holds
And eons a wandering soul binds
as it wraps the eternal time in its folds.
Stranger yet are the prospects of life,
Does destiny foretells our fate
or we shape it by our toil and strife?
Alas, no one can firmly state.
The bittersweet fruits of our labor
Here and now in time we must bear,
Of this I am more certain than ever--
A pumpkin seed yields not a pear!
There is no soulís zenith or nadir,
Death is a fathomless pit, a dead-end--
No heavenly bliss, no hellís fear,
No one has seen around its bend!
