- an old anonymous proverb,

of dewdrops in the early morning sun,
you will have the freshness of lotus petals in the lake,

Once guilt disappears you will have
a totally different kind of life, luminous and radiant.
You will have a dance to your feet
and your heart will be singing a thousand and one songs.

A man who will Kiss the Flame.
