Hast thou thought of the corn of the field

For in the grain thereof comes all the things of life

Of the physical body

And of the grape of the vineyard

Wherein is the wine of this life

Consider ye that while each as the

Grain of corn or as the grape

Is complete unto itself

So while we likewise must contain all

Of these things which are of this life

And yet … with all of this thou must

Drink of the Elixir of the Inner Life

And eat of this bread

For such as it is that man drinketh not

Nor eateth not of these things

So his flesh falleth away and his soul

Becomes as the blackness of the night
