12. Humility

My Lord Supreme,
Do tell me the secret of Your Greatness.
"My son, to you I reveal the secret of
My Greatness:
My earth-cry is humility-light."

My Lord Supreme,
Do tell me the secret of Your Goodness.
"Son, to you I reveal the secret of
My Goodness:
My earth-smile is humility-light."

My Lord Supreme,
Do tell me the secret of Your
Perfection-oneness.
"Son, to you I reveal the secret of
My Perfection-oneness:
My Silence-vision and My Sound-creation
Have a common source:
Humility's satisfaction supreme."
