Never Worry About the Things You Cannot Change
"Whatever happens in divine providence is always for the best,
For there is no alternative." - Sri Chinmoy
Herod and Salome
A bitter-sweet poem. I generally do not dwell on the dark and if I do, I quickly return to the Light as in this poem. Nevertheless, I recognize that:-
"Whatever comes from the Divine, is always fruitful of good and Light." -Sri Chinmoy.
Never Worry About Things You Cannot Change
Poor John might have remained alive,
But the wiles and allure of Salome,
Churned at the bosom of the love-sick King.
As such the Baptist had an untimely demise,
To assuage her mother’s wrath.
Two millennia later, and little has changed.
Men no more chant to the dark songs
Of lions in ancient Coliseums,
But the power-drunk energy;
The greed of the few,
Sends rivers of tears to our children,
In war-torn lands.
Above the murky waters,
The voice of my Captain commands:
“Go forward; go inward!
The ever-compassionate boat of Love,
Sails on silvery wings, to the ocean of the Unknown.
The starlit moon streams indigo rays,
To the sapphire-blue damsels of the Light;
Hope is replenished, even while scattering with the wind.
O Lantern, The call of Love will ultimately prevail,
And so never worry about the things you cannot change.
