Do what you can. Don’t try to do what you can’t. But if you don’t do what you can, surely your present poverty can never dive into the sea of the future’s affluence. Desires are synonymous with clouds. The clouds can only hide the sun of the welkin but can never destroy it. As the sun of the without bursts forth out of the clouds at a selected moment, so the sun of the within also emerges from desires at the choicest moment.
Chinmoy, Chandelier.First published by Sri Aurobindo Ashram in 1959.
