Try to Love the World


Try not to change the world.
You will fail.
Try to love the world.
Lo, the world is changed. Changed forever.

Statistical Poetry

There was me thinking checking your stats was a bad habit, waste of time and inefficient use ofresources. But, actually, it is a way to write poetry! see: Keyword Haiku So here is the beginning of my poetic adventure. (I once wrote a poem, but, it was something about a computer being good because it was er.. not made out of wood) so as you can see my keyword statistics are far better at generating poetry than me.

Poems – Never Give Up


“I do not give up,
I never give up,
For there is nothing
In this entire world
that is irrevocably unchangeable.”

– Sri Chinmoy

“Just make tremendous progress
And tremendous improvement
In your own life
Others will definitely be inspired
By the result.”

– Sri Chinmoy

Obituary of Sri Chinmoy at Independent (quite nice, although Sri Chinmoy never swam the English Channel. He did however, encourage people to try and complete the crossing.) – Nice tribute here: from Kevin Murphy ‘King of the Channel’ – 34 successful swims

Hope by Sri Chinmoy


Hope is at once both simple and profound.
It is hope that binds Heaven and earth. Hope is the bridge between Heaven and earth.
It is hope that makes us feel, at the beginning of our spiritual journey, that we are of God and that we are for God. “

Sri Chinmoy
