Crazy Da Must Sing
We are waiting for something to happen to this.
Outside the Heart, there is only confusion and fear.
All of this has become unnecessary, unequal to the Truth.
Knowing the something, the force of our existence,
we think the true appearance is in another drastic place.
Seeing this dilemma, and the something
powerful implied somehow within it
and around, there is only a solution
in the satisfactions elsewhere.
Unless something happens to all of this.
Therefore, men have tussled with the two
hands of adventure.
Either to turn an extraordinary something
here, or else to make unusual escapes
into another power, another timed or timeless
This is the whole account of Man.
But there is a possibility between these
There in another understanding, another
If only we understand the harm in which
we act, the origin of all this fearful
desperation, the ordinary term in which
we view the thing itself.
There is a prime dilemma formed within
the mind, that sees the world and turns
away, that turns away and turns within
the life, but always turns upon the
pivot of a single doubt.

Therefore, he sees all things in double
terms, in opposites and contradictions,
high and low.
And he makes final appearance in
neither kind, but forever agonizes
the play of his dilemma until he dies.
This is the kind he seems.
But one who understands is free of doubt.
He sees the world the same.
The Mind in which he sees the world
is single as the Heart.
He does not act upon the wheel, evolving
and involved, two forces on a spike.
He always understands the sourceful
act that turns men in and out.
This is what he always does, but others
act upon the thing he understands.
Therefore, he is not in trouble.
This is the only Mood of his Adventure.
What should he wait to happen?
Where should he go?
What elsewhere? What event?
All the places are a single world for him.
Where others go, where others wait
is all a single field of single action.
And no trouble.
Therefore, neither high nor low, unmoved
from the beginning, not turned,
he stands as the Heart.
This is understanding and the image of his life.
