When you eat too much,
you forget your truth,

and fasting makes you conceited,
so eat with some discipline,
and consciously. Be
an ordinary human being.

Then the door will open,
and you'll recognize the way.
Lalla, be moderate!

Lalla in Naked Song by Lalla , Coleman Barks, translator


To Practice This Thought:
Consider the ways you act extremely and moderate one of your excessive behaviors.
