8 October 1980

Alas, alas, alas!
Grievances reign supreme in my life.
I have a grievance against my ignorance-night.
I have a grievance against my darkness-height.
I have a grievance against my illusion-life.
I have a grievance against my frustration-body.
I have a grievance against my aggression-vital.
I have a grievance against my confusion-mind.
I have a grievance against my hesitation-heart.
I have a grievance against the idleness-promises of my soul.
I have a grievance against the fruitlessness-Dreams of my Beloved Supreme.

Alas, alas, alas!
O my Beloved Supreme,
Do tell me how I can free myself
From the tyranny of grievances.

“My child, you can free yourself from the tyranny of grievances if you can, once and for all, feel that we all love you: your life, your body, vital, mind, heart, soul and I all love you. Your feeling of conscious oneness with us can easily free you from your teeming grievances against us. Try to feel that oneness, my child. Try; you will succeed. Yours will be the abiding peace, illumining light, nourishing delight and fulfilling satisfaction.
