Give up anything.
Just value your spiritual life
And automatically you will feel
That this new life of yours
Comes first.”

Along the road at every moment
We must remain cheerful and
Self-offering.”

You must rise far above
The domain of circumstances.”

You do have the hidden capacity
To climb higher and dive deeper,
Even if it is just an inch.”

Series of experiences,
Everything ultimately helps me
Towards my final enlightenment.”

Is not an easy task,
But
A materially satisfied life
Is an impossible task.”
