hope

“Hope is not mere wishful thinking. It is the precursor of a new dawn that slowly, steadily and unerringly comes to the fore and eventually grows into reality’s existence.”

Sri Chinmoy, The Vision-Sky Of California, Agni Press, 1980

A smile gives us
A new hope.

Sri Chinmoy, Seventy-Seven Thousand Service-Trees, Part 36, Agni Press, 2004

Yesterday’s failures
Must be forgotten.
Tomorrow’s new hope
And new fulfilment
Must be cherished.

Sri Chinmoy, Twenty-Seven Thousand Aspiration-Plants, Part 173 (1992)

Hope is not an idle term. Hope is the reality that can and does reveal itself to us at God’s choice hour. To hope is to know the secret of achievement.

Sri Chinmoy: Rainbow-Flowers, Part 1 (1973)

Never give up hope!
Hope ultimately succeeds.

Sri Chinmoy, My Christmas-New Year-Vacation Aspiration-Prayers, Part 20, Agni Press, 2003

To live on the outskirts of hope
Is not enough.
Cultivate a hope-life
Inside the very breath
Of your moment-to-moment existence.

Sri Chinmoy, Ten Thousand Flower-Flames, Part 78, Agni Press, 1983

The satisfaction of life
May not be ours,
But the beauty of hope
Is all ours.

Sri Chinmoy,Ten Thousand Flower-Flames, Part 77, Agni Press, 1983

Love is hope.
Hope is nectar.

Sri Chinmoy, Seventy-Seven Thousand Service-Trees, Part 26, Agni Press, 2002

Hope is sweet.
Hope is illumining.
Hope is fulfilling.
Hope can be everlasting.
Therefore, do not give up hope
Even in the sunset of your life.

Sri Chinmoy, Twenty-Seven Thousand Aspiration-Plants, Part 112, Agni Press, 1987

If hope is just a mere wish, if it is just like making friends with fantasy, then consciousness will not respond to it. But if it is something significant, like a vision that is trying to blossom inside the heart of an individual, then consciousness will be elevated.

Sri Chinmoy, Consciousness: God-Journey To Man And Man-Journey To God, Agni Press, 1974

When hope makes friends
With patience,
Hope will be able
To live indefinitely.

Sri Chinmoy, Twenty-Seven Thousand Aspiration-Plants, Part 160, Agni Press, 1991

 

Hope
Knows no fear.

Hope dares to blossom
Even inside the abysmal abyss.

Hope secretly feeds
And strengthens
Promise.

 – Sri Chinmoy (1)

Hope pulls the heart of tomorrow into the body of today.

– Sri Chinmoy

To hope is to see with the eye of the heart.
To hope is to make the heart captain the vital and the body.
To hope is to send darkness-night into exile.

– Sri Chinmoy

The hope of a human child is to get the highest degree or diploma.
The hope or climbing aspiration of a divine child is to receive and achieve
Peace, Light and Bliss in infinite measure.
To hope is to feel the presence of the inner sun.

– Sri Chinmoy

Hope and faith are two intimate brothers; they always go together.
Hope nourishes faith and faith treasures hope.

– Sri Chinmoy

“Hope is not an idle term.
Hope is the reality that can and does reveal itself to us at God’s choice hour.
To hope is to know the secret of achievement.”

– Sri Chinmoy

Hope is at once both simple and profound. It is hope that binds Heaven and earth. Hope is the bridge between Heaven and earth. It is hope that makes us feel, at the beginning of our spiritual journey, that we are of God and that we are for God.

– Sri Chinmoy [Fn]
