Do I have to give up everything?Captain, my Captain,
Do I have to give up everything
In order to claim You
As my own, very own?
"My sweet child,
First claim Me as your own, very own.
To your wide surprise
You will discover
That besides Me you have nothing
of your own
To give up,
For your very existence-life
Is My blessingful Possession.
You will also discover
That I am your Eternity's Dream-Boat,
Plus, you are My Immortality's
Our destination is the Blue-Gold Shore
Of My Infinity's Nectar-Delight."
Sri Chinmoy, Captain, my Captain, Agni Press, 1994
