22. The differenceThe difference between God and me is this:
I defend my body's destructive might.
God defends my soul's illumining light.
The difference between Heaven and me is this:
I bark at Heaven.
Heaven smiles at me.
The difference between earth and me is this:
I see earth as a hopeless case.
Earth sees me as a God-manifested face.
Sri Chinmoy, The Golden Boat, part 17, Agni Press, 1974
