Valuing praise and reproach alike, silent, wholly content with what comes, not looking on any place as his home, firm in mind, he is My devotee and such a one is dear to Me.
The serenity of mind thus developed by the regulation of activities and regular meditation is- ever liable to be disturbed by the forces of the inherited physical body. These tend to operate in spite of self-realization, but the wise man protects him by continually reminding himself of the truth. He is not agitated by the changing phases of his nature, which now may be equilibrium, and now urge for action, or again inertia.
He who welcomes clarity of spirit, the urge to activity, and even delusion as they come, but does not long for them again when they disappear.
