FINDING SOLACE

 

A bad case of blues,

 Or searching for meaning or liberation?

Then practice meditation

The anguish, the distress, the pain

Wanes when you efface the consciousness

Of all the images corporeal

Close your eyes or let them open

Shut your ears or converse on your own

Slough off limbs and trunk,

Dim intelligence,

Depart from your form,

Leave knowledge behind and become identical with the divine light of power

The animated flame grows brighter and stronger

The yellow beams subdue all at the mental altar

The divine pull and power

Steadies, unifies and calms the core

Communion with the realm higher

Inward looking at Prana, feeling the breath

Lends a new pathway!
