70. Love and become

I looked for the mainland
Of Reality,
And I found it.
It whispered:
“Love or suffer,
Love or die,
Love and grow,
Love and become.
The world of hesitation has frightened your heart.
The world of calculation has puzzled your mind.
The world of temptation has captured your vital.
The world of depression has devoured your body.”
Sri Chinmoy, The Dance of Life, part 2, Aum Press, Puerto Rico, 1973
