Questions and Answer

That strength I crave,
Whence do you come?
Where do you go?
What ground do you rest upon
That standing you so often fall?

O will drest in the falsehoods
....of mind;
Truth wears the raiment
....of a beggar.


That evening after meditation, I found the following poem to satisfy me. (I have no direct link to it, as it is not found in the Sri Chinmoy Library.)


HOW TO CONQUER

Lo, how to conquer evil thoughts?
....Easy! One thing just try -
Imagine you are the ocean vast,
....You are the boundless sky.

Your evil thoughts are fish and birds
....Their lords are ocean and sky.
Fear not! The slaves are only slaves;
....Their revolt a fruitless cry.

by Sri Chinmoy
