29 September 1980

Left to myself,
I shall once more become
A perfect slave
To my desiring life.

Left to myself,
I shall once more become
A good friend
Of my sleeping body.

Left to myself,
I shall once more deeply appreciate
My attacking vital.

Left to myself,
I shall once more become
An ardent admirer
Of my doubting mind.

Left to myself,
I shall once more helplessly cry
With my weeping heart.

Left to myself,
I shall once more deliberately ignore
My illumining soul.

Left to myself,
I shall once more remain away, far away
From the ever-blessing Hands
Of my Beloved Supreme.

O, I cannot do that.
I shall not do that.
I shall always remain
In the Heart of my Beloved Supreme.
I shall always remain
At the Feet of my Beloved Supreme.
I shall always remain
With the Vision of my Beloved Supreme.
I shall always remain
For the Manifestation of my Beloved Supreme.
Him to please in His own way
I shall become an ever-climbing tree,
I shall become an ever-inspiring flower
And I shall become an ever-nourishing fruit.
