On the Way

How far am I from that place

Which I hold sacred

And dear to my heart?

It is said, "where there is

A will, there is a way."

And I am on this way, step by step.

This way is manifested by time,

space, life air, and conviction.

And is made of the sound vibration

Of the Holy Name.

It is revealed to me by

The kind blessings of many.

I cannot see that far ahead,

Nor can I perceive how much

Distance I have covered.

The only thing I know is that

I am proceeding at present.

With each time of chanting,

I am one step closer.
