O golden cup of life

From the Boundless Life collection

O golden cup of life,

A chalice full of love,

The space beyond all strife

You form our sacred home,

Your ways produce delight,

Your life becomes our own.


Before you can be full

You must be emptied out

Of each possessive pull

And falsehoods we believe

For empty cups alone

Are those that can receive.


So freeing all our mind

From greed that seeks for more

We foster all that’s kind

Redressing hurts and wrongs

Until our life becomes

A chalice full of songs.
