THE FLAME IN THE LOTUS

XLIX.
Faith is a diamond moment
When Birth is guaranteed and the weaknesses
Neither forgiven nor forgotten,
But they are cut from tying me down and
I am taken, as I am, that very instant, to the Pure Land where,
When I die I will be gathered into
Immeasurable Light and Infinite Life
And work to liberate all beings from their suffering.
I need to find that beach where,
Walking on bright days,
You can pick diamonds from the beach like shells.
