O heart leave alone anxiety of the thought of deceit
Taste the wine cup & let be vexation
Free alike is he who stands alone & he who cultivates a friend
And ere you die you will arrive at the limit of perfection


P 524

Heed not the suggestions, O heart, of solicitude vain;
Thought-taking and grieving forswear and the wine-chalice drain:
Alone and unfettered abide; a wine-worshipper be;
So a man shalt thou be and the bounds of perfection attain.

Th 798

Heed not, Heart, warnings of thought-taking vain;
Give up anxiety! the wine cup drain!
Be free, yet bound as one who worships wine,
So man become and thus perfection gain.
