32. ALL PRESENCE AM I

Although I dwell in poverty,
Matchless all joy of mine remains.
Upon my heart his Bounty rains
From His flame-white eternity.

To none I sell my teeming thoughts;
By me my trance is seen alone.
My heart shall never tremble or moan,
All-presence am I, in me no noughts.
Sri Chinmoy, Flame Waves, Sri Aurobindo Ashram, 1955
