Stillness enters as silent as the bloom of a flower,
As sober as a winter night with a fine fog shower!
It secretes within just like nectar secreting noiseless,
Its sweetness is felt by hearts and minds, crystal-like! Guileless!
It is the source of strength for the mind; part of pure nature,
Law that rolls the rhythm of the psychic legislature!
It's the key to the outer truths and inner sanctity,
Everflowing stream of love springing from fraternity!
It's the leaven that transforms me and the world around me,
A global language, known to beings of the land and sea!
It's emptying self; responding to divine pulsation!
It's passionlessness born out of true renunciation!
This, like rivers, flow within when I am, with me at ease,
When I love my body and mind; worries and woes I cease!
Like an empty book, I remain open; to be written,
By the spirit of God, words that from human sense hidden!
I sleep like a child! Feel my breath, like the gentle breeze blow,
Deep within, the aura of God, like the rainbow does glow!
Stresses, strains, fatigues, pains, and anguishes like devils gone,
Faith, joy, peace, and tranquility, like fresh blossoms, are born!
O, let this stillness stay in me long, like life in fullness,
Let no forces, like hurricanes, wipe away this stillness!
Let this spread out like the fragrance of flowers everywhere,
And make the world around me a heaven of divine care!
