180. Sin and crimeIt is a sin against the human
In my mind
When I think of fear.
It is a crime against the God
In my heart
When I think of doubt.
It is a sin against my God-becoming
In my life-river
When I deliberately feed despair.
It is a crime against my God-manifestation
In my body-field
When I unconditionally surrender to shameless death.
Sri Chinmoy, The Dance of Life, part 4, Agni Press, 1973
