A Cup of Tea (76)
There is a music which has no sound;
the soul is restless for such silent music.
There is a love in which the body is not;
the soul longs for such unembodied love.
There is a truth which has no form;
the soul longs for this formless truth.
Therefore melodies do not satisfy,
bodies do not satisfy
and forms cannot fulfil the soul.
But this lack of fulfillment,
this dissatisfaction has to be understood properly,
for such understanding
ultimately brings about transcendence.
Then sound becomes the door to the soundless, the
body becomes the path to the unembodied,
and form becomes the formless.
