634. God was proud

When I was a rock,

God was proud of my adamantine will.


When I was a tree,

God was proud of my untiring compassion.


When I was an animal,

God was proud of my unyielding striving.


When I was a human being,

God was proud of my heart’s crying.


When I was a divine being,

God was proud of my accepting and rejecting,

And my becoming and being.
