The Nature Of Things

Be like the fire
That burns and purifies

Be not like the water
That engulfs and drowns

Be like the fire that rises
Up and up towards the heavens

Be not like the water
That pulls you down and down

Be like the fire
That burns ego into cinders

Be not like the water
That converts ego into hard ice

Be like the fire
That aspires higher and higher

Be not like the water
That only wishes to exist

Be like the fire
That lets go of self

Be not like the water
That will keep its identity

Be like the fire
That loses self as it rises

Be not like the water
That will sink very low to be

Such is the nature of water and fire
Now choose at your own free will!
