My Lord Supreme,
You are both
The Creator and the creation.
Why is it so difficult for me
To thank You as the creation?

“My child,
Because of the capacity
I have given you
To serve My creation,
You are thanking Me, the Creator.
Because of the opportunity
My creation has given you
To serve Me,
Can you not thank Me, the creation?”
