The vast universal suffering feel as thine:Thou must bear the sorrow that thou claimst to heal;The day-bringer must walk in darkest night.He who would save the world must share its pain.If he knows not grief, how shall he find griefs cure?If far he walks above mortalitys head,How shall the mortal reach that too high path?If one of theirs they see scale heavens peaks,Men then can hope to learn that titan climb.God must be born on earth and be as manThat man being human may grow even as God.He who would save the world must be one with the world,All suffering things contain in his hearts spaceAnd bear the grief and joy of all that lives.His soul must be wider than the universeAnd feel eternity as its very stuff,Rejecting the moments personalityKnow itself older than the birth of Time,Creation an incident in its consciousness,Arcturus and Belphegor grains of fireCircling in a corner of its boundless self,The worlds destruction a small transient stormIn the calm infinity it has become.If thou wouldst a little loosen the vast chain,Draw back from the world that the Idea has made,Thy minds selection from the Infinite,Thy senses gloss on the Infinitesimals dance,Then shalt thou know how the great bondage came.Banish all thought from thee and be Gods void. Sri Aurobindo
