20 September 1980

Discipline, discipline, discipline, discipline!
Discipline is my faithfulness
To my poor body.
Discipline is my faithfulness
To my dynamic vital.
Discipline is my faithfulness
To my searching mind.
Discipline is my faithfulness
To my crying heart.
Discipline is my faithfulness
To my dreaming soul.
Discipline is my faithfulness
To my loving, blessing and fulfilling Lord Supreme.

My discipline is an opportunity-seed.
My discipline is a preparation-plant.
My discipline is a manifestation-tree.

When my entire life becomes a discipline-boat,
My Lord comes to me and says:
“My child, I am your Perfection-Boatman
And I will be sailing you
To My Satisfaction-Shore.”
