575. Sufficient

A word to the surrendered heart
Is sufficient.
A million words to the searching mind
Are sufficient.
A billion words to the striving vital
Are sufficient.
A trillion words to the sleeping body
Are NOT sufficient.
A sleeping body, what is it?
Doubt, man’s doubt:
His teeming doubts,
His brooding doubts.
Sri Chinmoy, The Dance of Life, part 12, Aum Press, Puerto Rico, 1973
