6476. Inner woundsIn the outer life
If you do not eat for two days,
Nothing serious will happen to you.
But in the inner life
If you do not aspire for even one day,
All the world’s hostile forces
Can attack you,
And your inner wounds may linger
For many days.
Sri Chinmoy, Ten Thousand Flower-Flames, part 65, Agni Press, 1983
