Time is –
Love is –
Death is –
And the wheel turns,
And the wheel turns,
And we are all bound to the Wheel.
And the Sage said;
Lo, that which binds you to the Wheel
And the very Wheel
And the Wheel turns,
And the Wheel turns,
And we are all bound to the Wheel.
And the Sage said;
Know that we all are the One.
Know that the Wheel is of your own making,
Know that the Wheel is of your own making,
And we are all bound to the Wheel.
And the Sage said;
Free yourself from the Wheel.
Know you are the One,
And free yourself from the Wheel.
Know that the Wheel is of your own making,
And we are all bound to the Wheel.
And the Sage Freed himself from the Wheel,
And became the One,
The Immortal God,
Freed from the Wheel,
Freed from Illusion,
And knew then why the One had created the Wheel.
And the One became many,
And the One became we;
And we are all bound to the Wheel.
Time is –
Love is –
Death is –
And the Wheel turns,
And the Wheel turns,
And we are all bound to the Wheel.
