3820Re: Question For The Women
- Apr 27, 2004Dear Lena, thank you for your most inspiring posting!
Your simplicity is a great achievement! In simplicity is tremendous
power. The utmost simplicity and directness of your gratitude and
devotion has inspired me today. May I be like you in that!
I am reminded of a poem by Sri Chinmoy:
The Real Reality
The real reality
Is a simple simplicity,
And not a complexity.
Complexity has never been related to reality.
