John Eppel

@ Sunday Times Books LIVE



We have the world to ourselves,

waiting for the moment

when the setting sun meets the rising moon.

Their size is equal;

their radiance is equal.

The light of consciousness merges

with the darkness of instinct.


We sip our wine on the threshold

of time and eternity.

We are neither male nor female:

we are perfection.

Like salt dolls, in the words of Ramakrishna,

like salt dolls walking into the ocean,

we lose ourselves together with the world.
