24. Surrender

To earth

I have surrendered my wisdom

So that earth-heart can be flooded

With my wisdom-light.


To Heaven

I have surrendered my ignorance-night

So that Heaven can claim me

And Heaven can utilise me

As its very own.


To God

I have surrendered my 'I-ness';

Therefore

God declares

Not only with His infinite Bounty,

But with His utmost Sincerity,

That I am another God.
