"My sweet Lord, You are the essence and substance and I am the flower.

Am I correct?"

"You are half-correct, My child.

You are the flower and the petals.

Petals signify multiplicity, the flower signifies unity.

I want you to be both unity and multiplicity in My creation."

From:Sri Chinmoy,My Lord's Secrets revealed, Agni Press, 1971
