Composure -/- Goodness

5:1
Composure

Where paranoia breeds panic
Hysteria feeds disaster

Remain unruffled whenever effective
Even within infernos

When equipoise fills minds
Speech lilts untiltingly

Better tackling unspeculative actualities
Before gossipy suppositions

***

Like rivers swallowing stones
Composure absorbs hostility

As elephants endure arrows
Silently handle slander

Like cobras closing hoods
Climb over insults


5:2
Goodness

Deem good deeds daily
Celestial stepping stones

Consider highest saintliness water,
Beatitude nourishes everything

Sinfear, affection, charity, sympathy;
Emits fragrant tagara

Lamps of lovely goodliness
Sends sin shrinking

***

When sensal delights unsought
Sublimity exalts paragons

Hatred never conquers hatred
Only love triumphant

Whyever hanker chaotic existence?
Nurture dauntless ethipractice
