3871. I am pleased only with my soulI am not pleased with my mind
Because it speaks to God too much.
Unthinkably, it embarrasses me.
I am not pleased with my heart either,
Because it speaks to God too little.
It unwisely represents me.
I am pleased only with my soul
For it speaks to God
Not only soulfully but also judiciously,
And it does not use
Either one word more
Or one word less than necessary
When it converses with God.
Sri Chinmoy, Ten Thousand Flower-Flames, part 39, Agni Press, 1982
