428. Is there anything permanent?My Lord,
How is it that there is nothing
Permanent on earth?
“Who told you so?
Is jealousy not permanent on earth?
Is doubt not permanent on earth?
Is insecurity not permanent on earth?”
True, they are.
But when are You
Going to make them impermanent?
“Son, the moment the world wants Me to.”
Why do You blame the poor innocent world?
After all, who created the world?
“Son, by creating the world
I feel I have played My role.
Now I feel the world should play its role
By embracing love,
Faith and oneness.
And you know, son,
I am more than ready,
I am more than eager
To assist the world
In its noble adventure.”
Sri Chinmoy, The Dance of Life, part 9, Agni Press, 1973
