Let man uplift himself by strength and skill,
And not debase himself by doing ill.
The Self will prove your greatest, truest Friend,
Or falsest Enemy—whate’er you will.
Serene and fearless, firm in self-control,
The seated yogi, body, mind and soul,
Shall meditate, his thoughts engrossed in Me:
Of every striving, the essential Goal.
O, he that shall behold Me everywhere,
In Me becoming ever more aware,
He never shall lose constant sight of Me,
Nor ever miss My watchful, loving care.
