542. Progress


Lord Supreme,

I want You to be

Totally frank with me.

Have I made any progress

In my three years

Of spiritual life?

“Certainly, My son, you have.

Let Me tell you about

Your great progress:

You now love Me

Infinitely more than

You love yourself.

And here is your greater progress:

Nothing will satisfy you

Unless and until

You have become the unconditionally

And supremely surrendered instrument

Of Vision-nourished Reality-Will.

Lo, your greatest progress:

You claim Me as your own,

Your very own.”
