Dreams that fly
I had.
Alas!
Dreams that cry
I have.

Alas, Alas!
Dreams that die
I shall have.
Alas, alas, alas!

Your Cherished Dreams

Allow everything else to vanish
Save and except your cherished dreams,
For your cherished dreams
Are treasured sleeplessly
By God Himself.

 Our Dreams

You belong to earth;
Therefore
You dream of fame and glory.
He belongs to Heaven;
Therefore
He dreams of love and service.
I belong to God;
Therefore
I dream of compassion and perfection.

Two Unborn Dreams

I long for the blossoming
Of two unborn dreams.
I wish to fly
From life to death
To change the face and fate of earth
In the world of death.
I wish to fly
From earth-failure to Heaven-triumph
To change the sorrows and pangs of God
In the world of man.

– Sri Chinmoy

Your Dreams

Trust your dreams.
They are sweet and beautiful.
Trust your visions.
They are soulful and powerful.
Trust your aspiration.
It is your earth-friend
And
Heaven-brother.
Trust your realisation.
It is your Eternity’s real Self.

Our Respective Tasks

O Lord Supreme,
Teach my mind
How to sleep without a futile dream.
O Lord Supreme,
Teach my heart
How to regain my ancient dream-
The dream that revealed
You and I are one,
The dream that distributed
Our respective tasks:
You the Monarch of Heaven,
And I the Monarch of Earth.

– Sri Chinmoy

My mind wants to interpret
All my dreams.
My heart wants to love
All my dreams.
My soul wants to fulfil
All my dreams.

– Sri Chinmoy

 

On Dreams by Sri Chinmoy

Each dream is a creation. Each creation is either conscious aspiration or unconscious aspiration. Our aspiration enters into the desire-life, the little brother, and helps him clean his body, purify his mind and illumine his earthly existence. Each iota of aspiration also expedites the arrival of realisation. Our aspiration enters into the realisation-life or brings the realisation-life into the aspiration-life in order to make the aspiration-life completely perfect for the awakening of our physical reality and for the blossoming of the soul-reality, which is within us and for us.

A dream is God’s creation in the inner world. From the inner world we enter into the realisation-world. Creation and dream, aspiration and realisation-they are all members of the same family. If we can become aware of one, then automatically we can have the other three; for our dream is, after all, a disguised reality, and a disguised reality done not remain always in disguise. It purifies our mind. It offers dynamism to our vital and it offers an inner awakening in our physical reality.
