Short poems and quotes about change by Sri Chinmoy

 

Do you want to change the world?
Then change yourself first.
Do you want to change yourself?
If so, remain completely silent
Inside the silence-sea.

– Sri Chinmoy (1)


Who wants to change the world
Outwardly?
Everybody, with no exception.
Who wants to change himself
Inwardly?
Nobody,
No hyperbole!

Sri Chinmoy (2)


 

Don’t resist;
Be flexible.
Don’t be rigid;
Be supple.
Welcome change!
Each change
Is an illumining opportunity
To knock at the door
Of fulfilling progress sweet.

Sri Chinmoy (3)


Change yourself slowly
And cheerfully.
Conditions will change immediately
And unimaginably.

Sri Chinmoy (4)

 

“The entire world may not change. The entire world cannot change. The entire world even will not change. But your tiny world you can and will change forever at this very moment with the help of your confidence-heart. Yours will be the unparalleled victory.”

Excerpt from Compassion-Sea And Satisfaction-Waves by Sri Chinmoy
