217. The Imprisoned Bird of Omnipresence Was Released

Through the door of meditation, the imprisoned bird of omnipresence was released. It flew and spread its wings over infinite spaces. Its wings of joy cast the shadow of peace on every unhappiness-scorched being.

Then, again, the bird of heaven remembered its little cage of past memories of habits, and it folded its wings and lodged itself behind the bars of earthliness.

O bird of eternity, break thy little torturing cage of dreams and fly to thy nest in everything!
