Holding to Routine, Delight Slips In

Holding to routine,

Avoiding the appealing distractions,

We work and achieve.

Being seeps in.

Delight blossoms, grows,

Amidst the ordinary world of work.

What seems to be separate from us,

Through attention,

Then respect,

Then reverence,

Shows itself as our Self.

Nature gives its blessings

When she is convinced of our commitment.

The Supreme revives the part–us–when

It is convinced of our commitment.
