Lux aeterna

A wandering sage of long ago said to his student:
"Try to enter into the inner recess of your heart -
there you will see heaven's very sanctuary.
Both are one and the same:
You enter both by the same doorway.
The straircase leading to the kingdom of heaven
lies within youself -
it secretly exists within your soul."
And it is true:
Our whole life is nothing but the attempt
to find this wondrous entrance.
All our acts are nothing bat a humble
knocking on this hidden door.
Our every hope is that a time perhaps will come when,
in answer to our knock,
we will hear a voice that says:
Because it is said:
"Knock and it shall be opened to you".
