3881. If your heart-flower is witheredIf your heart-flower is withered,
Blame not God,
Blame not even yourself.
Just pray to God
To grant you another opportunity.
Just ask yourself
Not to miss the opportunity
If you do not miss the opportunity this time,
Yours will be a fresh heart-flower
For God the Compassion to use
In His own Satisfaction-Way.
Sri Chinmoy, Ten Thousand Flower-Flames, part 39, Agni Press, 1982
