321. Transformation


“Everyone thinks of

Changing the world, but no one thinks of

Changing himself.”


I tried to change myself;

I badly failed.

I tried to change the world;

To my wide surprise,

The world had achieved

Its perfection-light long before

I made my surrendered attempt.

I failed to change my life


I mixed too much

With my Master, Ego,

With my Disciple, Doubt.
