Down the stream of consciousness
Into the sea of life,
Peace like a river flowing,
Ending pain and strife.
Ceaseless waves of perfect thought
Break on the shore of the mind;
Ideas, like tide on a glass-smooth beach,
Draw to themselves their kind.
The cycle of the living water,
From Fountainhead to creation blessed,
Then flows again to the Father-Source
To be again expressed.
