Poems about Goodness

Poems on Goodness

by: Sri Chinmoy

Goodness is born of    
Wisdom-light.  
Wisdom-light is born of
Peace-delight.

~

If goodness is not always    
His supreme necessity on earth,
Then how can any human being  
Have peace?

~

If you make greatness your companion,  
You may suffer.  
If you make goodness your companion,
You will not only prosper  
But you will also have God  
As your Companion.

Writing on Greatness and Goodness

by: Sri Chinmoy

   
O my Pilot Beloved, do tell me one thing. Is he really great just because he has achieved something significant in life? Is he really good just because he has given something precious to humanity? To me, he alone is great who adores Your transcendental Height. To me, he alone is good who loves Your universal Beauty.  

“My child, you are absolutely right. Mere becoming is not greatness, mere giving is not goodness. I want you to develop your own greatness and your own goodness. You can develop your own greatness by becoming one with your heart’s cry. You can develop your own goodness by becoming one with your life’s smile. Greatness is oneness that grows and glows. Goodness is fulness that satisfies and immortalises the human in the divine and the divine in the human.”
