United Nations: Peace Room1You and I
You have renounced world-bondage to please God;
Therefore, God is pleased with you.
I really mean it.
I have accepted world-suffering to please God;
Therefore, God is pleased with me.
I do hope that you know it.
You have pleased God
By crying for His Self-transcendence Height.
I have known it all along.
I have pleased God
By loving His compassion-fulfilling earth-life.
I am informing you in case you did not know it.
You and I have pleased God soulfully and triumphantly;
Therefore, we are divinely human and humanly perfect.
This a talk given by Sri Chinmoy on 25 March 1975 in the Peace Room of the Church Center for the United Nations.↩
