World peace can be achieved
When, in each person,
The power of love
Replaces the love of power.

Love is not a thing to feel.
Love is not a thing to give and receive.
Love is a thing only to become
And eternally be.

So that I can inundate
My entire being
With the omnipotent
Power of peace.

Of my heart-rose

To make progress.

Like the boundless sky,

A river of detachment.

and the sage was only praying to God
for Peace, Light and Bliss

To be successful in life:

On the bright, brighter, brightest
Side of life.

To disturb your inner poise.

At every moment
To feel the blessingful Presence
Of my Lord Beloved Supreme.
