47. Receptivity

Acceptance
Is our first receptivity
In our aspiration-life.

Rejection
Is our second receptivity
In our aspiration-life.

Surrendered oneness to reality's height
Is our third receptivity
In our aspiration-life.

What do we accept?
We accept God-Light in all.
What do we reject?
We reject our
Conscious influence-night
In others' lives.

What do we surrender?
We surrender our ignorance-pride
To God's Compassion-Sea.
Sri Chinmoy, Beauty-drops, Agni Press, 1975
