I have burnt my past, destroying every seed of evil destiny.

I have stridden bravely through the strewn ashes of my past and future fears.

I am the Eternal NOW, having torn to shreds my enclosing cocoon of ignorance with the sharp knife of free will.

Now I am Thy soaring butterfly of eternity, flitting freely through immeasurable skies of time.

The beauty of my wings I spread out through Nature everywhere, to entertain all beings.

My wings are sprinkled with suns and stardust. Lo! I am beautiful!

May every silken thread that shrouded my past folly be severed forever.

See! They trail now behind me, only adding to my beauty as I wing my way to my own Self in Thee.
