Innate Power

Innate Power...

The eye, which is scarcely two inches long,
can see millions of miles into space,
but it is incapable of seeing itself!!
Man, too, it is shrewd and as weak as the eye..
He can analyse others' motives,
count others' faults,
map out other's skills and capacities,
but he is powerless to analyse himself,
his feelings or emotions...
He is unwilling to discover his own faults;
he cannot assess his innate skills
and realise his inner reality!!
This power can be acquired
if he keeps company with sadhakas (aspirants for spiritual progress),
but not otherwise...
