Clean Up Your Temple – A Poem

If you want to hear, for one moment,
What I would advise
For maximum spiritual development
And embodied transformation
Beyond all the lofty attainment
Of non duality and advaita
It would be this

Clean up all you do
Clean up your body temple
Cleanse and nourish
Often and with vigor
Eat the rainbow and remove the toxins

Attend to the emotional body
Reinforced and supported by bodily habits and addictions
Heal old emotions, shine the light of love
On all that is held in grievance and resentment
Let it go, let it all go, for the sake of peace

Delve into mind’s rigidity and righteous beliefs
Entertain the unknown as your intimate friend
And become loose and relaxed

And seek only spiritual equanimity and love

If you attend to these fours pillars of wisdom
Body, emotion, mind, and spirit
You will see radical and fundamental change
But if you leave one pillar out
Your temple will be lopsided and incomplete.
