22.When I am without God,
I cry because there is no other way
To realise God
Than to cry silently and incessantly.
When I am with God,
I shed tears.
I shed tears because there is no other way
To express my eternal gratitude to God
Than to shed tears soulfully and unreservedly.
Sri Chinmoy, My Lord's Secrets revealed, Agni Press, 1971
