Secret of the Mind Elixir

I have a medicine called elixir of mind;
For years it’s been refined in the oven of afflictions,
Till I recognized its unchanging color in the matrix
Shining with radiance, illuminating the universe.
It opens the eye of reality
To see with minute precision;
It can change the ordinary mortal
Into a sage instantly.
To discern the real and the false
To complete the work,
See to refinement at all times.
