For all we know, we are the flowering bloom
Of the whole universe, its destined goal,
The darling offspring of the Cosmos’ womb,
Endowed with cosmic consciousness and soul.
Our purpose is at last to realize
What is implicit in our very being:
We are encoded finally to grow wise
To what will ultimately prove most freeing.
Locked in the crypt of every human mind
Is the ability to apprehend
How this grand panorama is designed
And toward what consequence all beings tend.
Once we can comprehend this mystery,
We’ll end our strange, eventful history.
