Not all eyes possess vision

Not all eyes possess vision
Eyes Vision
Nightingale, your song is dark honey,
your passionate grief
pierces the stone heart of the rock
Stay close, heart, to the one who knows your ways;
Stay in the shop of the Friend
If you don’t find true balance, anyone can sell you falsehood for truth
Don’t beg with a bowl before every boiling pot;
Not all eyes possess vision, not every sea is full of pearls.
Not all sugarcanes have ripened sugar

Surrender yourself
If you cannot be welcomed by the Friend, be honest
Know that you are rebelling inwardly like a thread
That doesn’t want to go through the needle’s eye!
And rest
The awakened heart is a lamp; protect it , get out of the cold winds
When you’ve left the storm, you will come to a fountain;
You’ll find a Friend there who will always nourish your soul.
With your soul always green, you’ll grow into a tall tree
Flowering, whose growth is interior.
