Imperfect efforts

Why is spiritual effort so difficult? Why is it fraught with failure?

Advertisements

Heckled by desire,

Blocked by inertia,

The surface mind fails

Again, and again

In its quest

To awaken

The inner soul.

Improper efforts

Ineptly essayed,

Fail to Achieve

A breakthrough.

Several botched attempts later,

The mind knows now

The meaning

Of the phrase:

“Easy to say

Difficult to do”
