Why aren’t my eyes made inwards
to see the glory of Lord indwelling
the love in its eternal abode
Outside they see only pain invading!
Why aren’t my ears turned inwards
to hear the music that plays eternal
from the flute of Lord enchanting
Outside they hear only cries shrieking!
Why isn’t my mind turned inwards
to perceive the brilliance of soul
the peace pervading in silence
Outside it keeps playing truant!
Why isn’t my voice turned inwards
to shut incessant chatter futile
to attain golden silence I covet
Outside it falls on heedless ears!
Why aren’t we made outwards inside
to concentrate, be more efficacious
to create new world of peace and love
Today that’s our principal need outside!
