41. Love

I love God
Because
I feel that with God's Love
I can create within me
A new world — a world of beauty,
A new consciousness,
A new Kingdom of Heaven.

God loves me
Precisely because
Without me
He feels He is
Hopeless,
Fruitless,
Useless.
Without me
His existence has no meaning;
Therefore
God loves me —
The seeker in me,
The lover in me.
Sri Chinmoy, Beauty-drops, Agni Press, 1975
