I Shall Never Give Up
- Dear friends, brothers and sisters,
Today I am inspired b the phrase "I Shall Never Give Up."
Here are a few poems by Sri Chinmoy on this subject:
I Shall Not Give Up
"Although my mind is useless,
Although my heart is worthless,
Although my life is soulless,
I shall not give up,
Excerpt from Ten Thousand Flower-Flames, Part 70 by Sri Chinmoy.
"Although I stumble,
I shall not fail.
Even though I fail,
I shall not give up,
Excerpt from Twenty-Seven Thousand Aspiration-Plants, Part 203 by Sri Chinmoy.
"My Lord Supreme,
No matter what You do,
I promise I shall never give up on You."
Excerpt from Seventy-Seven Thousand Service-Trees, Part 11 by Sri Chinmoy.
My Sweet Lord, ...
"My sweet Lord,
Do give me immense patience so that I shall never give up in the battlefield of life."
Excerpt from Prayer-Plants by Sri Chinmoy.
"No matter how many
Thousands of centuries
It will take me to realise God,
I shall never, never give up!"
Excerpt from Two God-Amusement-Rivals: My Heart-Song-Beauty And My Life-Dance-Fragrance, Part 3 by Sri Chinmoy.
My mind's teeming defects
Yet I shall never give up
My life's perfection-dream.
Excerpt from Twenty-Seven Thousand Aspiration-Plants, Part 145 by Sri Chinmoy.
"My sweet Lord Supreme,
I shall never give up hope, never!
This weak body of mine
Will have to become strong one day
So that I can serve You
In the physical world
More devotedly and more soulfully
Than I am doing now."
Excerpt from I Pray Before I Lift, I Meditate While I Lift, I Offer My Gratitude-Cries And Gratitude-Smiles by Sri Chinmoy.
I try so hard to please You,
But I can never please You.
Therefore, what is the use
Of trying again and again,
Only to fail again and again?
"My child, do not give up!
Let us not give up.
It is a joint effort.
The moment you succeed,
I shall succeed as well.
Your success has to precede Mine."
Excerpt from My Lord's Lotus-Feet Versus My Devotion-Heart, Part 3 by Sri Chinmoy.
"My Lord, my Lord, my Lord, my Lord,
My soul's Lord, my heart's Lord,
My mind's Lord, my vital's Lord,
My body's Lord,
No matter how many times
I have failed You,
I shall never give up.
I shall please You,
I shall please You
In Your own Way,
In Your own Way.
This is my life's only promise
To You, to You, my Lord,
My Beloved Lord Supreme."
26 July 1989
Excerpt from My Sweet Father-Lord, Where Are You? by Sri Chinmoy.
The God-Realisation Fun-Run
"Many have joined
The God-realisation fun-run.
Some have succeeded
While others have failed.
Many more will run in the future,
And some will succeed
While others will fail.
Let me start now
And see if I can finish the race.
If I fail,
I shall cheerfully join
Those who will run in the future.
But once I start running
The God-realisation fun-run,
I shall never give up for good
Until I have finished the race
Successfully and satisfactorily."
Excerpt from Ten Thousand Flower-Flames, Part 49 by Sri Chinmoy.
