My Lord Supreme,

You are both

The Creator and the creation.

Why is it so difficult for me

To thank You as the creation?

“My child,

Because of the capacity

I have given you

To serve My creation,

You are thanking Me, the Creator.

Because of the opportunity

My creation has given you

To serve Me,

Can you not thank Me, the creation?”
