(34) Spiritual Practice

A moderate life is the foundation

For achieving spiritual liberation

 

Sleep, food and activity in moderation

To keep body, mind in right position

 

Agitated mind cannot concentrate

On spiritual contemplation in earnest

 

Mind naturally uncontrollable

But good thing it is amenable

 

To reform gradually and patiently

By detaching from interests worldly

 

Desire to pursue path extra-ordinary

Is the sustained impetus necessary

 

Don’t respond to desire mechanically

Analyse need to fulfill desire critically

 

Then desires will reduce gradually

To establish consciousness godly

 

Patience is the key in this pursuit

Nothing can happen in a moment

 

Keep desire for liberation burning

Practice meditation, contemplating

 

Leave the result to the will Divine

As per His time table and plan

 

Mind focused on god all-pervading

Each moment of acting or resting

 

Desire for this sustains in fortunate

Stick to the practice in real earnest
