Although this message originally was written by Sri Chinmoy for the year 2000, it is still very valid today:
The Absolute Lord Supreme
Tells the confusion-mind of the world:
“Take My Sadness-Heart and Madness-Eye
As the last and urgent Warning.
Come back Home immediately!”
The Beloved Lord Supreme
Tells the aspiration-heart of the world:
“In you is
With you is
And for you is
The Year Two Thousand
Is a decision-examination for humanity:
We bind and blind the old world, and retire
We embrace the new world of the forward march.
The Smile of the Beyond
Is beckoning us
To come and play hide-and-seek.
– Sri Chinmoy
