You don’t see it, do you?
The perplexity that overcomes;
How carelessly you deny yourself
the pleasure of self-validation.
Do you not understand
that I invariably admire your heart.
In this colossal jungle of:
– You gleam brighter than Sirius.
How can you not see it?
Although you cannot feel it,
You must atleast hear it
As I whisper it in your dreams
You are the light:
“In judging our progress as individual we tend to concentrate on external factors such as one’s social position, influence and popularity, wealth and standard of education. These are, of course, important in measuring one’s success in material matters and it is perfectly understandable if many people exert themselves mainly to achieve all these. But internal factors may be even more crucial in assessing one’s development as a human being. Honesty, sincerity, simplicity, humility, pure generosity, absence of vanity, readiness to serve others – qualities which are within reach of every soul – are the foundation of one’s spiritual life.”
