440You are a useless fool
If you imitate others.
Do you not realise
That their stupidity, like yours,
First try to imitate His Signature.
Then try to imitate His Voice.
Finally try to imitate His Silence-Smile.
God-imitation is not imitation;
It is the revelation
Of your inner illumination.
Sri Chinmoy, Twenty-Seven Thousand Aspiration-Plants, part 5, Agni Press, 1983
