Hours make the young old.
All changes have arisen from the hours:
the one who is freed from hours is freed from change.
When for an hour you escape from the hours,
"How" no longer remains:
you become familiar with that which is without "How."
Hours are not acquainted with timelessness.
For the one who is possessed by time,
there is no way there except bewilderment.
Version by Camille and Kabir Helminski
