My earth-life, my Heaven-life

I fasted to realise God;

Therefore

God laughed at my earth-life

Of stupidity.


I cried to realise God;

Therefore

God smiled at my Heaven-life

Of necessity.


I prayed to realise God;

Therefore

God appreciated my earth-life

Of sincerity.


I meditated to realise God;

Therefore

God embraced my Heaven-life

Of reality.
