The Triumph of the Soul
“Joy! Joy! I triumph! Now no more I know
Myself as simply me. I burn with love
Unto myself, and bury me in love.
The centre is within me and its wonder
Lies as a circle everywhere about me.
Joy! Joy! No mortal thought can fathom me.
I am the merchant and the pearl at once.
Lo, Time and Space lie crouching at my feet.
Joy! Joy! When I would reveal in a rapture.
I plunge into myself and all things know.” – Attar
Plunge into joy today.
Run off the edge of complacency and cannonball into deep waters of delight.
Dream again and then do what’s necessary.
Light the world with your own flame.
Do not go through this life with an unlit wick.
From wax string to flicker to dancing flame to melting wax.
“True inner joy is self – created.
It does not depend on outer circumstances.
A river is flowing in and through you carrying the message of joy.
This divine joy is the sole purpose of life.”– Sri Chinmoy
