Please read this poem after reading William Wordswoth's Character of the Happy Warrior
Who is the happy Yogi? Who is she
That every being with breath should wish to be?
--It is the generous Spirit, who, when laughing
at the tasks of real life, hath abandoned
the plan that pleased her ego’s thought:
Whose every breath feeds the inward light
That makes the path before her always clear in sight;
Who, with a natural instinct for grace
What Prana can move, is diligent to manifest;
Welcomes her practice, and stops not there,
But makes her radiant being her prime care;
Who, destined to go in company with Grace,
And Ecstasy, and Elevation, blissful train!
Turns her necessity to ecstatic chanting;
In face of these doth take a cold shower,
Which is our human nature’s highest dower.
