United Nations meditation-flowers

The seeker in me says, “I wish to see God.” But do I not know that God is continually looking at me?

The seeker in me says, “I wish to love God.” But do I not know that God is continually loving me?

The seeker in me says, “I wish to give God my life’s best achievement: surrender.” But do I not know that God has already given me His Eternity’s best achievement: oneness?

Seeing is a two-way experience. Loving is a two-way realisation. Giving is a two-way perfection.

Experience makes us infinite. Realisation makes us eternal. Perfection makes us immortal.

Infinite is dream. Eternal is reality. Immortal is progress.

Dream is God the cosmic Seed. Reality is God the cosmic Fruit. Progress is God the universal and transcendental Tree.
