destiny

You can be
The master of your destiny
If you can only have
A peaceful mind
And
A soulful heart.

– Sri Chinmoy (1)

~

We can fulfil our destiny
Only by serving
And loving humanity.

– Sri Chinmoy (2)

~

Be brave
Day in and day out
To meet with your destiny.

– Sri Chinmoy (3)

~

O my heart, be brave!
Face your destiny
With silence-fortitude.
Your victory-day
Will fast approach you.

– Sri Chinmoy (4)

~

Your heart’s aspiration
Does not have to follow
Your destiny.
It is your destiny
That has to follow
Your heart’s aspiration.

– Sri Chinmoy (5)

~

Everything is in the hands of destiny
Except one thing:
My bosom’s will.
Everything is in the hands of destiny
Except one thing:
My hour of God.
Everything is in the hands of destiny
Except one thing:
My imminent Perfection-dawn.

– Sri Chinmoy (6)

~

O God-seeker-heart,
Aspire, enjoy your inner epiphany.
Permit not your life
To be eclipsed by the sounds of destiny.

– Sri Chinmoy (7)

 ~

My destiny laughs at me
When I tell the world
That I can become.
My destiny touches my feet
When I tell my Lord Supreme
That I am.

– Sri Chinmoy (8)

~

Our frightening and threatening destiny
We must challenge and transform
Into an enlightening destiny.

– Sri Chinmoy (9)

~

His ceaselessly and unfathomably
Happy heart
Has cancelled all the injunctions
Of his fateful destiny.

– Sri Chinmoy (10)

“The power that fore-ordains man’s ultimate End or Destination is called Destiny. God uses this power in and through the Master. A real disciple’s Destiny is undoubtedly the Destiny of his beloved Master.”
