Black and White


It is Friday morning the beginning of day 19.

To think of God is good
To pray to God is better

To surrender to God's will
is by far the best

Guru Sri Chinmoy

FACES

Don't be fooled

By the tempting face

Of beauty.

Don't be discouraged

By the demanding face

Of duty.

Don't be frightened

By the dawning face

Of Divinity.









Excerpt from The Goal Is Won by Sri Chinmoy.















FAMILIAR FACES

Doubt


Is familiar as an old and damaging error
of mine.

Faith

Is familiar as an old and brave friend
of mine.


Fear

Is familiar as an old and shameless enemy
of mine.


Courage


Is familiar as an old
and yet eternally old captain

of mine.



Excerpt from The Goal Is Won by Sri Chinmoy.
