196. Are you a favourite son of God?

Are you a favourite son of God?
Then expect no friend from the world.

Are you a favourite son of God?
Then expect jealousy from the world
Far beyond the power of your receptivity.

Are you a favourite son of God?
Then expect contempt from the world
Far beyond the end of your imagination’s flight.

Are you a favourite son of God?
Then rest assured the length and breadth of the world
Will misunderstand you:
  Your love-light, your devotion-height, your surrender-delight.

  For you the Supreme is Compassion.
  In you the Supreme is Illumination.
  With you the Supreme is Perfection.
