The soul, like the moon,

The soul, like the moon,
is new. and always new again.

And I have seen the ocean
continuously creating.

Since I scoured my mind
and my body, I too, LaIla,
am new, each moment new.

My teacher told me one thing,
Live in the soul.

When that was so,
I began to go naked,
and dance.
