23. Two most deplorable mistakes

You achieved your God-realisation
Far too soon;
Therefore, it was not as mature
As it could have been.

You started your God-manifestation
Far too soon;
Therefore, you are encountering
Too many uncompromising,
Undivine and hostile forces.

So you see, you have not made one,
But two most deplorable mistakes
In this life.
Sri Chinmoy, My life-tree, Agni Press, 1975
