Meditation: -fore and -after

A respected householder asked a teacher,
'Once we are aware
will we know from where we arise
and therefore know ourselves
and know ourselves thereafter? '

The sage replied,
'We cannot know ourselves
without knowing from where we arise,
cannot be aware
without being aware.

'Once aware,
we will know from where we arise.
Therefore we will know ourselves
and know ourselves thereafter.'
