461. His kingdoms

His desire-kingdom
Is bounded on the north by fear,
On the south by doubt,
On the west by jealousy,
On the east by insecurity.

His aspiration-kingdom
Is bounded on the east by faith,
On the west by love,
On the north by devotion,
On the south by surrender.

His realisation-kingdom
Is bounded on the east by God’s Compassion,
On the west by God’s Illumination,
On the north by God’s Realisation,
On the south by God’s Perfection.
