41. To become a perfect instrument

To become a perfect instrument
Of your Beloved Supreme
You need only two things from Him daily.
During the day
You need His Compassion
So that in the battlefield of life
Your searching mind can succeed
And your crying heart can proceed.
During the night
You need His Forgiveness
Because unconsciously, if not consciously,
You make friends with ignorance-sleep.
Sri Chinmoy, Khama karo, Agni Press, 1987
