18. Inner visionMy inner vision tells me
That I am nearer than the nearest
To my Lord Supreme.
My outer sight tells me
That I am farther than the farthest
From my Lord Supreme.
Whom to believe?
If I believe my inner vision,
Pride tortures my heart.
If I believe my outer sight,
Frustration tortures my mind.
I am not going to believe either.
Sri Chinmoy, Lord, receive this little undying cry, Agni Press, 1975
