The Riddle of Isha

All that moves has a secret:
the spirit envelops the bones
and when you yield
you win without greed. 

Regrets of a hundred years
weigh us down
unless we know the dance. 

We are led to darkness
if we don't recognize the image
we saw as children. 

That which never stirs
is very swift
we can't chase it down with thoughts
it will stop when one stands still. 

It moves and moves not
its eye surrounds
reflects
overpowers with its magic. 

This is a strange walk
to the darkness of the vault
and when we soar
the darkness beyond
the horizon in the west
is more intense.
If one could journey
to the secret of the smile
pleasures will come
without the seed of sorrow
detachment will fall
without emptiness. 

Can we jump
beyond the golden disk
remember the deeds
there is
no other.
