SPIRIT QUICKENED, by            
First Line: Boldly enter into your own house of silence
Last Line: To be met and solved by craftsmanship of mind.
Subject(s): Silence; Spiritual Life; Towns


Boldly enter into your own house of silence;
Protection is there for you; friends respect retirement.

Relief is there from mortal, egotistical thought
Impeding perfect control by Divine understanding.

Reception is there; conscious, positive, loving guidance
That, venturing daily, the hidden way shall be plain to mind.

In silence is salvation from obverse defeat.
Beset by enticements, unquickened spirit weakens to truth.

But unknown powers emerge to challenge importunate discord
Intricating quick solution of contemporary task.

Mind quickened grasps possibilities
Unheeded by vagueness of undeveloped, neglectful man.

Emerging elements of spiritual verity enable conflicts
To be met and solved by craftsmanship of mind.
