86. Inconscience and Forgiveness

His are the lips that do the best preaching.
His is the life that does the worst deceiving.
His is the body that does the longest sleeping.
His is the vital that does the wildest ridiculing.
His is the mind that does the meanest snobbing.
His is the heart that does the filthiest defiling.
His is the realisation that sempiternally shines
Man’s hopeless inconscience
God’s endless Forgiveness.
Sri Chinmoy, The Dance of Life, part 2, Aum Press, Puerto Rico, 1973
