"I will cast out Wisdom and reject Learning."
As book learning and the "Wisdom" of the priests is not spiritual experience I reject it. With the mind still all of this does not disturb me.
"My thoughts shall wander in the Great Void"
When the mind is brought to rest and concentrated on the divine there is no longer any need to consciously attempt to control the mind. It can be left free to wander but it does not leave the Great Void.
"Always repenting of wrongs done
Will never bring my heart to rest."
Endless thoughts, even good ones such as repentance for past transgressions are the enemies of the soul's peace.
"I cast my hook in a single stream;"
The mind (hook) has been brought to rest and concentrated on the "single stream" which is the one reality flowing out into creation.
