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.”
