My Outer Peace vs My Heaven's Peace
"Victory means temporary peace,
But Peace is eternity's victory."- Sri Chinmoy.
My outer peace negotiates, this is good.
Yet it is shrouded in the shadows of my mind’s supremacy.
My Heaven’s Peace illumines,
For it is the language of the Heart.
My outer peace carries the sorrows of night;
My Heavens Peace blesses me with Love and Light.
My outer peace embodies the love of power;
My Heaven’s Peace embraces the power of Love.
My outer peace follows the way of breaking;
My Heaven’s Peace demonstrates the way of selfless giving.
My outer peace is restless with suspicion;
My Heaven’s Peace is a Oneness-Union.
From above, my outer peace carries painful showers;
My Heaven’s Peace is a garland of beautiful flowers.
My outer peace is a slave to greed;
My Heaven’s Peace is a servant of need.
My outer peace is subservient to the critical mind;
My Heaven’s Peace is born out of a celestial vine.
My outer peace is the son of compromise;
My Heaven’s Peace, is the child of compassion.
My outer peace, lies in the imagination;
My Heaven’s Peace is the reality of union.
My outer peace always fades;
My Heaven’s Peace blossoms like Jade.
My outer peace is a separation-nest;
My Heaven’s Peace is the song of Oneness.
My outer peace tears, layer by layer;
My Heaven’s Peace is the fruits of prayer.
My outer peace-road is full of cracks;
My Heaven’s Peace-Bridge has plenty of stock.
My outer peace has a very loud voice;
My Heaven’s peace is an inner choice.
