Power of Good Thoughts


The strength of the body
is reduced
with the diseases
hidden in the body.

The strength of the mind
is reduced
with the senses
of desire, fear, lust,
anger and jealousy
hidden in the mind.

One must delve deep down
and exterminate
such untoward thoughts
lingering therein.

The real truth
will then be realized.
Mind can then reach
to the things and lives
of the world outside.

Our thoughts then
devolve on others’ hearts
and abide there.

As per our thoughts- -
the world outside appears to us!

Good and pure thoughts
kind and virtuous thoughts
restitute all the goodness
In the world!

    As the mind rules over the frame, let the thoughts win over the deeds for a while...
    The power of good thoughts has to be distinguished by one and all. As usual, your poem works like a medicine for the fatigue of these times... Thanks for sharing this thought. (Report) Reply

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
