45.My Supreme Lord, do take away from me my two old enemies: submission and domination. Submission-enemy compels me to submit to the strong in me. Domination-enemy compels me to dominate the weak in me. I do not want to submit. I do not want to dominate. What I need is illumination. What I need is perfection.
My Supreme Lord, I need Your Illumination to illumine the weak in me. I need Your Perfection to perfect the strong in me.
Sri Chinmoy, Compassion-sea and satisfaction-waves, Agni Press, 1992
