57. In quest of the satisfaction-queen

His life was an infinitude of quest.
Satisfaction denied him her presence.
Helpless he was.
Miserable he became.
At last a blue bird
From deep within lovingly announced:
“Argue not with your brooding self.
Satisfaction-queen will be yours.
Your meditation shall shake hands
with God-manifestation.
God-manifestation shall shake hands
with your perfection.”
Sri Chinmoy, The Dance of Life, part 2, Aum Press, Puerto Rico, 1973
