My Lord,

Every year my earthly years


And I lose something precious

From my childlike heart.

Is it because of the advancement

Of the years that I am losing

My divine qualities?

"No, My child,

It is not exactly so.

Your passing years have nothing

To do with it.

But every year, unfortunately,

You are over-feeding your mind.

Therefore, the tragedy continues."

From:Sri Chinmoy,My Lord's Lotus-Feet versus my devotion-heart, part 2, Agni Press, 1998
