In stark uncertainty of fear
how can I face my challenge
go through the battle?
Trembling in trepidation of
acquitting myself badly,
I stand naked in shame
in prostrate supplication.
Uplifted by the joyous voice, I hear:
"Go to that place of calm within the storm,
of ultimate serenity, of bliss.
Find within your sacred space
where none can touch you,
because there is no you to be touched.
Enfold yourself in that shield and armor
within and without.
Breathe in your exhilarating challenge.
Breathe out your destiny."
