Lord of my Life!

Lord of my Life! I have always been at Thy Feet, like a frog (which clings) to the stem of the lotus; make me instead a honey bee which (from the blossom of the Heart) sucks sweet honey of Pure Consciousness; then shall I have Deliverance. If I lose my life while clinging to Thy Lotus Feet it will be for Thee a standing column of ignominy, O Blazing Mountain of Light spreading red rays! O (wise) Expanse of Grace, more subtle than the ether!

~ Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi, verse 6, Arunachala Patikam
