At last the cloud of silence within me, holding Thee remote, burst, and the rising waters of Thy Spirit broke the narrow boundaries of my soul, baptizing me in Thine expanding waters of infinity.

Suddenly I beheld myself in rags. Seated on the hard stones of poverty I wept, and my teardrops fell on the unheeding, unrelenting stones of my present circumstances.

I do not want to lose myself. Thy tiny dewdrop craves only, by merging in Thee, to feel that I am one with all the other drops in Thy ocean.

Make Me See That I Am but an Actor in Thy Cosmic Motion Picture

I am aware that this turbulent dancing show is only a vast illusion. I am happy to have acted both tragic and comic parts. Still, Father, give me now and then a few days of respite from my task!

I Pour Out My Love at Thy Feet of Immortality

I beheld Thy bliss-face emerge from the dark shadows of my ignorance, where it had been hidden for long aeons by my indifference. And, seeing Thy smiling joy, I know that my own happiness mirrored Thy blessed image.

May I Reap the Greatest Harvest *
