Two Mighty Forces

Sri Chinmoy's words on the two forces of desire and aspiration

My Life's Soul-Journey

There are two mighty forces that govern this world of ours. These mighty forces are desire-night and aspiration-light.

Desire-night is the love of power, and aspiration-light is the power of love. The love of power wants to destroy and devour the entire world. The power of love wants to feed and immortalise the entire world. The love of power is self-love; the power of love is God-love. When we utilise the love of power in our day-to-day activities, we consciously and deliberately bring to the fore the destructive vital anger in us. When we utilize the power of love in our multifarious activities, then God, out of His infinite Bounty, showers His choicest Blessings on us.

 

 

Keep your heart open
To the power of love
If you want to be
In close contact with God.
