318. Machine and manWhen a machine
Wants to think like a man,
God feels proud of His Dream-Boat.
He starts singing and dancing.
When a man
Wants to think like a machine,
God feels sorry for man’s unevolving life.
He buries His Mind and Vital
In the soil of despair-night
He drowns His Heart and Soul
In the giant bosom of failure-sea.
Sri Chinmoy, The Dance of Life, part 7, Agni Press, 1973
