My Beloved Supreme, here on earth, whoever scores the most is the winner. There in Heaven, who is the winner? Do tell me.

"My child, in Heaven the winner is he who becomes cheerfully and inseparably one with the surrender-life and surrender-breath of the tennis ball. A human seeker can learn the message of surrender in its purest form from a tiny little tennis ball — not from the player, not even from the racquet, but from a mere ball. When you think of yourself as a mere ball, you will be able to give the greatest satisfaction to Me, to your Beloved Supreme, your Eternity's Champion Tennis Player."
