Although I teach, I am the cap of fools,
Although I love all souls, a fiend am I.
I am not strong yet for the weak I fight;
At will I sell myself and myself I buy.

At every pause my life I contradict.
To me are ever same all truths and lies.
To me the earthly beings and He are one.
We fly in His bosom vast, in us He flies.
Sri Chinmoy, Flame Waves, Sri Aurobindo Ashram, 1955
