Poems on change by Sri Chinmoy
Change! Change! If not, you will suffer. Change! Change! You will prosper. Brave, brave the old! If not, you will die. Brave, brave the new! You will fly.
Don't resist; Be flexible. Don't be rigid; Be supple. Welcome change! Each change Is an illumining opportunity To knock at the door Of fulfilling progress sweet.
Change yourself slowly And cheerfully. Conditions will change immediately And unimaginably.
The mind thinks That any change Is painful. The heart feels That any change Is powerful.
Change your attitude! Lo, look what stands before you: Plenitude!
Change your mind If you do not want anybody To bind your life.
Not because you are clothed In a frail body, But because of your obdurate Unwillingness to change, Your life is a misery-haunted house.
The entire world may not change. The entire world cannot change. The entire world even will not change. But your tiny world you can and will change forever at this very moment with the help of your confidence-heart. Yours will be the unparalleled victory.
