Ego and Self-complacency
Scale of Justice
Lord of Hades
A Look at ego and its close friend, self-complacency
Ignorance chewed, at the spirit of Love,
Day turned to night and Light into sorrows,
Clouds unveiled cobwebs, from high up above.
The way now a path, crawling with shadows.
Daggers were swung, at fair justice’s scale,
Scorpio did sting and her scorpion prevailed.
Greed became deaf, to the nightingale’s wail,
Weaving its gold, across valleys and vale.
Much weeping arose, to drown the oppressed,
Hades Lord danced, through a river of tears.
Insufficient to dowse, or to redress,
The flames of complacency, shaped by fears.
Tasting the smugness of arrogance-might,
Deceit and division, skirted the Light.
O boundless One, love of power replace,
With the power of Love to see Thy face.

"When you do well, you feel that you are the doer; you try to take the credit. But you have to feel that if you are the doer ...to know that some other force is operating in and through you. That force is the Force of the Supreme. So who should get the credit when you do something perfect? The Supreme Himself." - Sri Chinmoy.
"Thoughts can only bind you, no matter how good they are. So you have to go far beyond the domain of thoughts. You have to enter into the world of willpower, where you really create and become one with the Divine Will."- Sri Chinmoy.
"The best thing is to offer anything that you do, good or bad, to the Supreme and to feel that it is He who is operating in and through you, according to your achievement and according to your present stage of consciousness." - Sri Chinmoy.
