546. Lustre-drop, lustre-sea

O sweet Lord of my unconditionally
Surrendered heart,
O sweet Pilot of my life-boat,
O sweet Speed of my soul-river,
O sweet Smile of my Goal-shore,
Just tell me the difference
My lustre-drop and Your lustre-sea.

“O sweet child of My Vision’s Immortality,
The difference is very simple and clear.
With your lustre-drop I body forth
And feed the birthless and deathless hunger
Of the entire universe;
And within My lustre-sea I claim you,
I own you as My only
Fulfilling and manifesting
