448. Four promises

I made three promises

To the Supreme:

I shall appreciate the outer beauty

Through my inner eye,

I shall love the outer world

Through my inner heart,

I shall be the bridge

Between the hunger of the earth-body

And

The fulfilment of the Heaven-soul.


The Supreme made

One promise to me:

No matter how many times I fail,

He will come to me in His form of

Compassion-sky

And

Patience-sea.
