YES AND NO, THE GREAT PARADOX - By JVL NARASIMHA RAOINDIA

YES AND NO, THE GREAT PARADOX

One of the disciples of Swami Vivekanda,
The great Indian sage.
Asked him a question“ Can we change the world?”
Vivekanda replied , “In the absolute sense no
In the relative sense yes”
You may wonder, What is this mess?
And think it may be a fuss.
You can’t root out poverty
But you can help a poor man
You cannot remove all the vice
And make this world very nice
But you can change one’s heart
Through your great art
A squirrel can’t lift a mountain
But can carry a little sand
Mahatma Gandhi, a great pacifist
Once said, “If I want to choose Between inaction and violence
I choose the latter”
Because any action is better than inaction
You may not change the world but you can change your friend
Do something good as little as you can
And great happiness can easily be won.
