I shall love the whole world,
But I shall control
Only myself.

Source: Poet Seers/sri chinmoy.

Never was there a time when I was not,
nor thou, nor these lords of men, nor will there ever be a time hereafter when we shall cease to be.

Excerpt from: The Bhagavad Gita (Ch. 2). In: A Sourcebook in Indian Philosophy. Edited by S. Radhakrishnan and Charles A. Moore. 1957. Princeton University Press (at Poet Seers.org).

 



Apocalypse

Within, without the cosmos wide am I;
In joyful sweep I loose forth and draw back all.
A birthless deathless Spirit that moves and is still
Ever abides within to hear my call.

I who create on earth my joys and doles
To fulfil my matchless quest in all my play,
I veil my face of truth with golden hues
And see the serpent night and python day.

A Consciousness Bliss I feel in each breath;
I am the self amorous child of the Sun.
At will I break and build my symbol sheath
And freely enjoy the world's unshadowed fun.

Source: Sri Chinmoy. 1974. My Flute (at Poet Seers.org).
