Exercise for the Soul

Building up faith
Provides great value
In the present life
And eternal one too.

Spiritual health now
And for the life to come
Keeps the mind upbeat
Avoiding the ho hum!

Like a physical work out,
Exercising belief
Builds muscles for the soul,
Power and relief.

By seeking the Truth,
Neglecting what destroys,
Recognizing wonder,
Experiencing joys.

Being devoted
To what the Way is
With daily scripture,
Prayer and praises.

    Physical training has great benefits for your present health but it’s the building up of your soul that provides an everlasting gain.
