It is never too late1

It is never too late for me to become a good instrument of God.

It is never too late for me to pray to God and to meditate on God in the small hours of the morning.

It is never too late for me to serve my Beloved Supreme inside my brothers and sisters — mankind.

It is never too late for me to love my sisters and brothers — humanity — inside my Beloved Supreme.

It is never too late for me to tell my sweet Lord that I am only for Him. Him to see face to face, Him to love, serve and fulfil, for this I saw the light of day.

It is never too late for me to learn what I truly am in the inner world and to unlearn what I truly am not in the outer world.

Finally, it is never too late for me not only to have a heart-to-heart talk with my Inner Pilot, but also to grow into His very image. I know that my Lord Supreme will be pleased with me totally only when I become like Him, another God, for what He wants from me is an equal share. He wants me to be His compatriot and not His slave.

Yes, there is one thing which it is too late for, and because I am too late for that, I am infinitely grateful to my Beloved Supreme. And what is that thing? It is my desire-life. It is too late for me to go back to my desire-life. Something more which is also true: I shall never be able to go back to the animal kingdom, never!
