27. Selflessness

Father, my Father Supreme,
Tell me how far my selflessness
Can carry me.
"Daughter, My daughter,
As far as My perfect Perfection carries Me."

Father, my Father Supreme,
Tell me the difference between
My selflessness and my self-discovery.
"Daughter, My daughter,
The same as the difference between
My divine Pride in you
My Concern supreme for you."
