Poems about Consciousness

Within, without the cosmos wide am I;
In joyful sweep I loose forth and draw back all.
A birthless deathless Spirit that moves and is still
Ever abides within to hear my call.

I who create on earth my joys and doles
To fulfil my matchless quest in all my play,
I veil my face of truth with golden hues
And see the serpent-night and python-day.

A Consciousness-Bliss I feel in each breath;
I am the self-amorous child of the Sun.
At will I break and build my symbol sheath
And freely enjoy the world’s unshadowed fun.

Sri Chinmoy, My Flute, Agni Press, 1972.


I am now all ready
To wing my mystic flight
To the future worlds
Of Existence-Consciousness-Bliss



To lengthen your consciousness-realm.
To heighten your consciousness-sky.
To deepen your consciousness-sea.

Sri Chinmoy, The Silence-Song, Agni Press, 1975.
