42. A favourGod asked me for a favour.
I gave Him not what He wanted.
Can you imagine
What He wanted from me?
He wanted to have
All my ignorance.
I said to Him,
"If I give You all my ignorance
What will I have on earth
To live with and to live for?"
I asked God for a favour.
He gave me immediately what I wanted.
He gave me
His Infinity's Love,
He shared with me His supreme Secret:
That real joy is in self-giving.
