Visions and Hope

The enlightened masters say to give up all hope.
For it is the only way that I will find peace.

Yet it is the vision of what may be that keeps me alive.
If it were not for this, then surely I would surrender to the urge that always seems to emerge, to let go, disappear, and die.

'For in that sleep of death, what dreams may come?'

What relation do my visions have to do with the urge to let go into nothingness? Are they in opposition, or are they one?

Is there an answer to this, and if so, can it be spoken?

Perhaps only wise men ask these questions and only fools would attempt to answer them.

Perhaps surrender,
to all that is,
as it is,
is the only answer.

Not for the weak of heart.
