Sifter
of Dust


Suppose
you know the definitions

of
all substances and their products,

what
good is this to you?

Know
the true definition of yourself.

That
is essential.

Then,
when you know your own definition, flee from it,

that
you may attain to the One who cannot be defined,

O
sifter of the dust.
