997. The most difficult question

Lord, please do not mind.

Today I have

The most difficult question

For You.

If You do not know the answer,

Just tell me so.

I shall understand.

But if You know the answer,

Then You have to answer me

Most sincerely


With no reservations whatsoever.

Lord, here is my question:

Is the world really progressing


Is the world really regressing?

"Daughter, you are most proud

Of your question


I am most proud

Of My answer.

Here is My answer:

The world is definitely progressing

For those who know that

I am the Creator


I am the Owner

Of this world,


The world is unthinkably regressing

For those who think that

They are the owners


They are the rulers

Of this world."
