997. The most difficult question

Lord, please do not mind.
Today I have
The most difficult question
For You.
If You do not know the answer,
Just tell me so.
I shall understand.
But if You know the answer,
Then You have to answer me
Most sincerely
And
With no reservations whatsoever.
Lord, here is my question:
Is the world really progressing
Or
Is the world really regressing?

"Daughter, you are most proud
Of your question
And
I am most proud
Of My answer.
Here is My answer:
The world is definitely progressing
For those who know that
I am the Creator
And
I am the Owner
Of this world,
And
The world is unthinkably regressing
For those who think that
They are the owners
And
They are the rulers
Of this world."
