kiota leaves her last class

the master of all masters works with nothing.
the more you bring the master into your work, the more the Presence will be there.
we have talked so much.
remember what we have not said.
and keep working like the master.
laziness and disdain are not devotions.
your effort will bring a result.
as dawn lightens, blow out my candle.
dawn is in your eyes now.

do not run to your study in the morning and bury yourself in a book.
take down a musical instrument.

i keep a secret in myself
a paradise that does not exist.
is that good? is that bad? i don't know.
for years i gave away sexual love with my eyes.
now i don't.
i am not in any one place.
i do not have a name for what i give away now.
whatever the Eternal gives,
...that you can have from me.
