… and He created life, and from life faith and space and air, light, water and earth, the senses and the mind. He created food and from food strength, austerity, sacred poems, holy actions and even the worlds. And in the worlds, name was created.
As when rivers flowing towards the ocean find there final peace, their name and form disappear, and people speak only of the ocean; even so sixteen forms of the seer all flow towards the Spirit and find there final peace, their name and form disappear and people speak only of Spirit.
