The Way of the Disciple (10/21/93)
A disciple’s disposition
Should depend on the condition
That he wants to please the Master,
Try his best in every way.
So be true in your devotion,
Keep a lid on your emotion
And remember to do simran
Every chance throughout the day.
You must do your meditation;
Do not wait for inspiration.
Mind keeps flitting while you’re sitting,
But you musn’t leave your place.
Although sleep seems so alluring
You must go on enduring
Every itch and twitch you’re feeling,
For your effort brings His Grace.
Though His bounty is unending,
Every moment you are spending
In His pleasure brings the treasure
Ever closer to your sight.
For the keys are in His keeping
And you’d better not be sleeping
When He passes out the nectar
In the middle of the night.
Vows you made in the beginning
Kept, will keep your soul from sinning.
You will keep the end in view.
With a firm determination
Soon will come the confirmation
By your meeting with the Master
And His Love encircling you.
