shadow, nurtured

X

Breath, focused,
Will make one supple.
Vision, cleansed,
Will make one pure.
Love, lead, but do not impose.
Be as content with what goes,
As what comes.
Stand back from the brink
Of understanding.
Think, but do not dwell.
Create, but do not cling.
Grow, but do not exert.
The shadow, nurtured,
Will make one whole.
