7968. The Inner VictoryEach day you get up early
To pray and meditate,
You are running very, very fast
In your inner race.
Each day you are unwilling
To get up early,
You are walking slower than the slowest.
The inner victory is only for those
Who run with the fastest speed.
Sri Chinmoy, Ten Thousand Flower-Flames, part 80, Agni Press, 1983
