57. His realisationHis realisation is skin-deep
Who says that the body’s beauty is skin-deep.
When will he know
That the outer beauty
Of a human being
Is a solid portion
Of God the Beauty.
His realisation is sea-deep
Who feels that man can transcend himself.
He will know,
He will know without fail
That today’s man is tomorrow’s God.
Sri Chinmoy, The Wings of Light, part 2, Agni Press, 1974
