God-embrace1

I fasted to realise God;
Therefore
God laughed at my earth-life
Of stupidity.

I cried to realise God;
Therefore
God smiled at my Heaven-life
Of necessity.

I prayed to realise God;
Therefore
God appreciated my earth-life
Of sincerity.

I meditated to realise God;
Therefore
God embraced my Heaven-life
Of reality.
