You are the Source

Mischief is yours.
Sorrow is yours.
But virtue also is yours,
And purity.

You are the source
Of all purity and all impurity.

No one purifies another.

Never neglect your work
For another’s
However great her need.

Your work is to discover your work
And then with all your heart
To give yourself to it.
