  Sri Chinmoy Poem
  God in your conscious life:
  • You have studied books on God and people have told you that God is in everybody, but this is all mental speculation.
  • It is only when you realize God in your conscious life that you truly know who God is, what He looks like, and what He wills.
  • At that time you remain in God's Consciousness all the time .
  • This is not mental hallucination or imagination; it is direct reality.
  • And this reality is more authentic than my seeing you here in front of me.

  Who I am
  • True, I do not know who I am
  • But I do know Whose I am.
Word and Music By Sri Chinmoy 19 April 1987  
  Sri Chinmoy's philosophy of "Never Give up" related to Arther Schopenhaur quote on the Acceptance of Truth?

"All Truth passes through three stages:

  • :First it is ridiculed:
  • Second, it is violently opposed: and
  • Third, it is accepted as being self-evident."
  •  

 

Through meditation and other processes of reflection we see clearly the third stage which gives us the strength to survive the other two. The first two stages are inflicted upon others by those who have not reflected on the issue. We are empowered by the knowledge that the third stage in inevitable. Source? Placed on wall the office wall to remind me
  John Kennedy wanted to use the UN to Move the world, Sri Chinmoy says Do not Give Up.

.. the final quote concerning the United Nations from your 31 May article, "Staff Counsellor Bows Out", I was reminded of two others;

  • The first I fixed some time ago to a picture frame in my office which holds photos of [Secretary-Generals] U Thant with Dag Hammarskj÷ld and U Thant with with [US President] John F. Kennedy. They are the words spoken by President Kennedy during his visit to the United Nations:
    • "My fellow inhabitants of this planet, let us take our stand here in this Assembly of Nations and
    • let us see if we, in our own time, can move the world toward a just and lasing peace"
  • The second quote is form Sri Chinmoy who has been leading peace meditations a the United Nations for the past 15 years:
    •  "If you really want to accomplish something, never surrender to outer circumstances. Real failure is only when we give up -- never, never before.
    • Do not give up under any circumstances.
    • Continue: the goal is ahead of you. If you do not give up you are bound to reach your destined goal."

I find both quotes most inspiring especially for this 40th anniversary year.

  God's will

Not my will but Thine be done.

Words from New Testament, Music by Sri Chinmoy  
  I cherish only one strength, My cheerful surrender to God's will Wods and Music by Sri Chinmoy  
  I CHALLENGED THE INVISIBLE

I drove the chariot of the sun
     Athwart the arch of blue-gold Heaven,
Dissolving the negative intruders,
     Fear and doubt,
Embracing the positive prompters,
     Faith and Love.
Thousands of years ago
    I challenged the invisible.
At long last, today
    My challenge has been accepted.
Enlightenment fondly braves
    The untiring searcher.
 
from The Dance Of Life, Part 2

  Spirituality is not
A compulsory course,
It is the blossoming
Of an inner urge.
