Out of nothing, all of this appears. Where it comes from, and where it’s heading, nobody knows.

Nobody knows a thing about it, and yet it’s all given for free. This is an act of pure love.

You don’t need to understand any of these words. Just dissolve into the mystery of it. Melt into what the words are pointing to.

Sacrifice your understanding. It has already served its purpose.
