45. GratitudeIn the life of aspiration and dedication
The gratitude-deer always runs the fastest,
Always achieves the most,
Always becomes the perfection-satisfaction
Of the highest
Most fulfilling and fulfilled
Supreme in us.
Gratitude is not a human achievement.
Gratitude is a divine treasure
Granted to us
By the Inner Pilot within us,
The Absolute Supreme.
Sri Chinmoy, Dedication-drops, Agni Press, 1976
