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.
