30. Family

In a human family
We quarrel and struggle
Because we feel that each one
Has to survive
For his own earth-satisfaction.

In a divine family
We strive devotedly and soulfully
Because we feel that each individual
Is responsible for the collective satisfaction
And collective perfection.

In a divine family
God plays the preparation-role,
The perfection-role,
The satisfaction-role.

The divine family
Is the only thing
That God desperately needs
Here on earth.
