6374. Strive to bring backIf over the years
You have lost instead of intensified
The inspiration, aspiration,
Inner joy and thrill
That you had when you first accepted
The spiritual life,
Then you must strive to bring back
Your original intensity and eagerness.
Only then will you once again feel
The utmost sweetness and loveliness
Of your spiritual quest.
