Willing to experience aloneness, I discover connection everywhere; Turning to face my fear, I meet the warrior who lives within;
Opening to my loss, I am given unimaginable gifts; Surrendering into emptiness, I find fullness without end.
Each condition I flee from pursues me. Each condition I welcome transforms me And becomes itself transformed Into its radiant jewel-like essence.
I bow to the one who has made it so, Who has crafted this Master Game; To play it is pure delight, To honor it is true devotion.
