27. Ambassadors of God

O Ambassadors of God,
What do you need
From earth and Heaven?

“We need earth’s confidence
    In us
So that we can show earth
    The golden Feet of God.
We need Heaven’s confidence
    In us
So that Heaven does not point out to God
    Our incapacities
While we strive hard
    To manifest Him on earth.”
Sri Chinmoy, The Golden Boat, part 9, Vishma Press, New York, 1974
