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.
