Anathema

(curses)

I do not understand
How a saintly man like you
Can heap anathema
Upon those who fail
To agree with you all the time.

Arid

(dry)

You want to know
Why nobody likes you.
Nobody likes you
Because nobody wants to be
Affected by your arid mind
And impure vital.

Assailed

(violently attacked)

It is quite natural
That you will be assailed
By doubt
If you do not aspire.

Benignant

(gracious)

It is the benignant qualities
Of our heart
That endear others
And, at the same time,
Make us divinely beautiful
And supremely lovable.

Bias

(preference)

Naturally you will be an object
Of ruthless ridicule
If you show a definite bias
Towards a particular individual.

Chastise

(punish)

You think that you can do
Anything you want to.
I may not be able to chastise you,
But God can chastise you
Easily,
And He definitely will.

Chide

(scold)

I chide my mind
When it steals
My heart's happiness.

Circumscribe

(limit)

I am the last person to ask you
To circumscribe your meditation-hours.
On the contrary,
I want you to meditate more,
But always cheerfully
And devotedly.

Concomitant

(that which accompanies)

Failure is always
A concomitant
Of doubt.

Condone

(forgive)

The very nature of
A purity-heart
Is to condone
An unruly mind.

Contentious

(quarrelsome)

The cheerless mind
And the fearless vital
Frequently enjoy
Loud and contentious noises.

Cowered

(cringed)

His frightened heart
Cowered in the darkness-room
Of his wild vital.

Demean

(humiliate)

I do not want to demean myself
By associating with
My doubtful mind.

Disgruntled

(discontented)

Remain always cheerful.
Do not be disgruntled
In your climbing
Heavenward journey.
