The human mind despises the body that houses it,
but the soul has only love.
The mind would soar to the heavens,
but for a body that chains it to the earth.
The mind would be consumed in divine oneness,
but for the body’s delusion of otherness,
as though it had made itself.
But the soul sees only G‑d.
In that very delusion of otherness,
in that madness of the human ego,
even there, the soul sees only G‑d.
For she says, “This, too, is truth.
This is a reflection of the Essence of all things,
of that which truly has neither beginning nor cause.”
And so she embraces the bonds of the body,
works with the body, transforms the body.
Until the body, too, sees only G‑d.
