God’s Will and my will1

God’s Will and my will. Is my will becoming one with God’s Will? Yes, it is.

What does God want from me? God wants me to express my deep appreciation for those who help me in my life’s journey towards the uncharted golden Land, and I am doing it.

God wants me to thank my friends sincerely and unreservedly, and I am doing it.

God wants me to say a few nice things about my enemies. Indeed, it is a hard task, but somehow I manage to do it.

God wants me to decrease drastically my desire-bound earthly needs, such as material possessions, name, fame and glory, and I am doing it.

God wants me to increase boundlessly my aspiration-free heavenly needs, such as a self-giving concern for humanity and an unconditional surrender to divinity. I am doing it.

God wants me to grow into a gratitude-sea so that I can receive Him all the time measurelessly and, at the same time, please Him in His own Way. I am doing it.

In an uncertain world there are only four things that are unmistakably and absolutely certain:

God loves me unconditionally.

I need Him breathlessly.

God has come to me as a Compassion-Tree.

One day, at God’s choice Hour, I shall go to Him as a satisfaction-fruit, His satisfaction-fruit.
