476. The folly of manThe folly of man!
He desires revelation before realisation.
He is afraid to climb high.
His concentration on truth
Threatens him and frightens him.
Alas, he is always assailed
By destructive memories.
This is what he feels he needs
To perfect his life in God's Dream.
Sri Chinmoy, Transcendence-Perfection, Agni Press, 1975
