9. O child of the Sun-God

O child of the Sun-God,
Did you ask your Father
How much Wisdom-power
He has kept aside
 For you?
“I did ask my Father!
He said
He has not kept aside
Even a flame of Wisdom-power
 For me.
I shall have to deserve and acquire.”

O child of the Moon-Goddess,
Did you ask your Mother
How much Love-perfection
She has kept aside
 For you?
“I did ask my Mother!
She said
She has kept aside
Her Love-perfection-universe
 For me.
She is eagerly waiting
For me to claim it as my very own.”
