For the full manifestation of the Divine my soul came down on the earth. Many a time I called him names. But I was excepted from punishment. To him I said, “O quoif of muffs, your ignorance is vaster than the cosmos itself. Dream is dream. Reality is reality. They are as different as black and white. To us your dream is a quiz. To you our thought is a riddle. Your present strength is incapacity. Your dream is capacity. My strength is sincerity. It never exceeds practicability. Don’t be a rogue. Be sincerity. When the role of sincerity is over, be patience. Wait for the divine Hour. Alas, your impatience never allows me to see the face of satisfaction.”
Chinmoy, Chandelier, Sri Aurobindo Ashram, 1959
