363. Fortune-teller and fortune-bestowerWhen man the fortune-teller
Promises me a bright future
My heart of gratitude
Makes his present immediately brighter.
But when God the fortune-bestower
Promises me the brightest future
My impatient heart of ingratitude
Questions God’s sincerity
Questions His motive.
Sri Chinmoy, The Dance of Life, part 8, Agni Press, 1973
