Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high

“Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high;
Where knowledge is free;
Where the world has not been broken up into fragments by narrow domestic walls;

Where words come out from the depth of truth;
Where tireless striving stretches its arms towards perfection;

Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way into the dreary desert sand of dead habit;
Where the mind is led by thee into ever widening thought and action-Into that heaven of freedom, my Father, let my country awake”

            – Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore “Gitanjali”, verse XXXV.

    Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way into the dreary desert sand of dead habit;

    envisioning of a planetary prophetology
    that is so needed today

    The poet when he is developed reads the
    mind of the universe, although it very often
    happens that the poet himself does not know
    the real meaning of what he has said

    There’s no shortage of prophets running
    around They’re all over the internet

    Blessed are the flexible, for they
    shall not be bent out of shape

    Where the clear stream of reason has not lost
    its way into the dreary desert sand of dead habit
