"Father, tell me frankly, do my spiritual children really love me?"

"Son, tell Me secretly, do you unreservedly love them?"

"Yes, Father, I do. If not, I would have begged You, and forced You in Your unconditional Compassion to take me to the other world."

"Son, you are right, you are absolutely right. Now, tell me, when you are in a cheerful frame of mind, what do you think of your children? What do you think of their love?"

"Father, I think they are trying, I feel they are trying."

"Son, I know they are succeeding. I assure you they are succeeding."
