468. I tell youI tell you,
Even when worst comes to worst,
It will not be so bad.
I tell you,
Even when best comes to best,
It will not be so good.
Unwillingness to see
The Face of Light
Is by far the worst thing on earth.
Surrender to God's Will
Is by far the best thing on earth.
To defeat the worst in life,
We must unlearn in the heart
The lessons given us by the mind.
To win the best in life,
We must learn in the mind
The lessons given us by the heart.
Sri Chinmoy, The Dance of Life, part 10, Agni Press, 1973
