Poems on confidence by Sri Chinmoy

Your confidence-heart need not be
The result of your yesterday’s success.
Your confidence-heart can easily be
The result of your implicit faith
In tomorrow’s most beautiful dawn.

Happiness
Is the beginning
Of self-confidence.

2

 

Confidence, confidence.
God has confidence in me
And
I have confidence in God.
God feels I shall he able
To equal Him.
I am sure God will help me
In this matter.
I feel I shall be able
To manifest Him.
I am sure God will help me
In this matter.

What is confidence?
Your love for your real nature.

What is confidence?
The destruction of your negative thoughts.

What is confidence?
The transformation of imagination
Into reality.

My
Human confidence
Is
The proud feeling
Of knowing everything,
Of understanding everything.
My
Divine confidence
Is
To identify myself with the heart of everything,
See God and the world
With the soul of everything,
And
Become one with God the Aspiration-Light
And God the Realisation-Delight of everything.

5

 

A mind of peace
Is a reservoir
Of confidence.

6

 

Conscience feeds confidence.
Confidence feeds action.
Action feeds God.

7

 

Critics
Have nothing
But ignorance-confidence-night.
