I Surrender

I surrender to joy
Because
Joy is power.

I surrender to love
Because
Love is a power sublime.

I surrender to oneness
Because
Oneness is the measureless power.

I surrender to God
Because
God is the absolute Power supreme.

Sri Chinmoy, The Dance Of Life, Part 6, Agni Press, 1973.
~

Do not surrender to exhaustion.
If you surrender to exhaustion,
Then you will have to surrender to chaos.

Do not surrender to chaos.
If you surrender to chaos,
Then you will have to surrender to barrenness.

Sri Chinmoy, Ten Thousand Flower-Flames, Part 29, Agni Press, 1982.
