34.

I go out, alas,
Only to realise that I have become
My show-off mind.

I come in
And, lo and behold, to my greatest satisfaction,
I have become my humility-life.

35.

I go out
And sit beside God the Power
Inside my life-house.

I come in
And sit at the Feet of God the Peace
Inside my heart-home.

36.

I go out
And come to realise that if I have hope,
I have everything.

I come in
And come to realise that if I have promise,
I belong to everybody
And everybody belongs to me.

37.

When I go out,
My mind tells me
That even if I do not desire today,
Tomorrow invariably comes.

When I come in,
My heart tells me
That if I do not aspire today,
Tomorrow may never come!

38.

When I go out,
The barking doubt-dogs frighten me.

When I come in,
The enriching faith-dog enlightens me.

39.

I go out
And unguardedly multiply
My desire-dreams.

I come in
And very carefully safeguard
My aspiration-dreams.

40.

I go out
To win humanity’s mind-favours.

I come in
To collect Divinity’s heart-treasures.

41.

When I go out just a little,
I see my Lord shedding bitter tears.
I ask my Lord the reason.
He says, “My daughter, I am weeping
Because your vital is so insecure.”

When I come in just a little,
I see my Lord shedding bitter tears.
I ask my Lord the reason.
He says, “My son, I am shedding tears
Because your mind is so impure.”

42.

When I go out,
My Lord looks at my ever-withered mind
Most sympathetically.

When I come in,
My Lord looks at my evergreen heart
Most proudly.

43.

When I go out,
God’s Patience endures
My ever-unbending mind.

When I come in,
God’s Pride treasures
My ever-surrendering life.

44.

I go out
To seek happiness in the distance.

I come in
And become the breath of happiness
Right within.

45.

When I go out,
I watch the dance of self-importance
All around me —
And I invariably participate.

When I come in,
I listen to the song of God-importance
In the inmost recesses of my heart —
And I immediately participate.

46.

When I go out,
The smiles of my own mind
Confuse me.

When I come in,
The tears of my own heart
Illumine me.

47.

I go out
And tell the outer world
That God has sent me
To teach His Philosophy.

I come in
And tell the inner world
That God has sent me
To study His Biography.
