459. It is so easy

Lord Supreme,
You have given me
A smart mind, a sweet heart and
A kind-hearted soul.
How can I best use them
In my day-to-day life
And become a perfect instrument of Yours?

“Ah, it is so easy, My son.
Just ask your mind not to see
Ignorance in mankind,
Including yourself.
Just ask your heart to feel
That the hearts of others are unquestionably
As sweet as yours.
Just ask your kind-hearted soul
To show you the real Face
Of the real God.”
Sri Chinmoy, The Wings of Light, part 10, Aum Press, Puerto Rico, 1974
