5. Willpower

Willpower
Is the light of the soul.
This light of the soul
Does not expose
The darkness of millennia
Which we embody.
On the contrary,
This light of the soul
Illumines the ignorance-night
That has captured us
And wants to strangle us.
This light frees us,
This light liberates us
From ignorance-night
And
Then illumines the ignorance-night
That had enveloped us.
Sri Chinmoy, Beauty-drops, Agni Press, 1975
