Secret Of The Golden Vessel

You are a vessel full of self
All of this must be emptied
All of this must be shelved
Then you are ready for the fire

Look inside to your feelings
Let them leave with your breath
Like with leaves in November
Nothing to fear from death

The secret of the Golden Vessel
About the body and the breath
This too you must let go of
Let the heart give it away

The location we call empty
Has all the magic that's contained
In the end of the process
Comes something we can't explain

The center of the Universe
Appears from out of nowhere
This is oneness, a unity
A state beyond compare
